      The History News Network at George Mason University has just polled
      historians informally on the Bush record. Four hundred and fifteen,
      about a third of those contacted, answered -- maybe they were all
      crazed liberals -- making the project as unofficial as it was
      interesting. These were the results: 338 said they believed Bush was
      failing, while 77 said he was succeeding. Fifty said they thought he
      was the worst president ever. Worse than Buchanan.

      This is what those historians said -- and it should be noted that some
      of the criticism about deficit spending and misuse of the military
      came from self-identified conservatives -- about the Bush record:

      He has taken the country into an unwinnable war and alienated friend
      and foe alike in the process;

      He is bankrupting the country with a combination of aggressive
      military spending and reduced taxation of the rich;

      He has deliberately and dangerously attacked separation of church and state;

      He has repeatedly "misled," to use a kind word, the American people on
      affairs domestic and foreign;

      He has proved to be incompetent in affairs domestic (New Orleans) and
      foreign ( Iraq and the battle against al-Qaida);

      He has sacrificed American employment (including the toleration of
      pension and benefit elimination) to increase overall productivity;

      He is ignorantly hostile to science and technological progress;

      He has tolerated or ignored one of the republic's oldest problems,
      corporate cheating in supplying the military in wartime.

      Still, while the great majority said he was failing as president less
      than 15% were willing now to say he was the worst president.
