I am here to argue that he is not the worst president on earth, but rather mediocre compared to some other pretty bad leaders. I believe that communism is the wrong thing, and any communist leader is better than a leader who screws up a democratic and free country.

Here are some worse leaders than our beloved dubyah:

Vladimir Putin
Chavez
Mao
Castro

To name a few. I direct your attention to a poster made up saying that Mr. Putin is worse than bush.

Thank you and I await your rebuttal.

did u know he invaded Iraq for USA's protection?
He just wanted oil.
He said they have weapons of mass destruction. A poor country like that having hydrogen bombs?
Randomknowledge

Con

As you have not argued my points but instead presented some hypothetical information and a question, I assume you conceded all my arguments to me. I will now present some pretty bad things Fidel and his comrades have done:

Fidel Castro:
If you consider the number of people that try to leave Cuba each day to get to the USA, then it is difficult to see Castro as a great leader. If you consider the standard of living of the average Cuban, it is impossible to see Castro as a great leader.

Its been considered that the people around him are keping him up, and doing everything for him.

Vladimir Putin:
Communism, dictator-like leadership from ages and forever.

In conclusion ,there have been worse presidents and worse people who lead significant groups.

Thank you.

Iraq went from one tyranny to another. The US doesn't care about democracy or sovereignty in Iraq. Just look at what the US is letting Turkey get away with in "Free Iraq"

Conservative, American oil companies make money on Middle Eastern oil whether Americans are the ones consuming it or not.

It would have been really easy to come up with numerous reasons to argue Bush being the worst president. Obviously that didn't happen. Not that I'm a Bush hater or lover, it's just not that difficult to come up with a case against him. And this did not happen. And depending on how you qualify being a bad or good president Fidel could be called one of the best. Not that I am a communist, but the vast majority of those kiled under his regime were actually subversives acting with American (not nessecarily directly the government) funds. Plus he loves Baseball. If you want to use an example as worst President hit up Idi Amin before a Putin, Castro, or Mao. At least they didn't cripple their country in every way whilst running it. Sorry I don't mean to turn this into something else.

I think people who don't belive in freedom for all don't deserve freedom themselves. Every single President without exception that has freed millions of people from teriny has been excoriated, condemed and riddiculed to no end, President Bush is no exception and all future Presidents will be treated the same. It takes Presidential Courage to do what is right even though it is politicaly unpopular in the eyes of the voters. It's called, learning from history, When good men do nothing evil happens. President Bush will go down in history as one of the greatest liberators of people living in terriany ever.

As soon as I saw this debate I thought that I would immediately vote for whoever hated Bush; although after reading through, I realized that what was being debated was whether or not he was the worst president on EARTH. George Bush cannot possibly be the worst president on Earth, although he is undoubtedly the worst in U.S. history. Also I think that Randomknowledge presented a better case than tigersomething and I think that Bush isn't necessarily a bad guy, he's just an extremely horrible president. (p.s. Bush has really bad grammar, bleh)

The U.S. seeks to control the Middle East's oil, not use it for domestic consumption. The US wants cotrol of this oil in the event of a confrontation with European powers or China.

i ahte when people say that we invaded just for oil. I mean doesnt he do research seeing how we get most of our oil from Canada and Mexico and only 16% from the middle east?

I believe that the economic mess that we are in now is not President Bush's fault. It actually takes 10 years for an economic event to kick into the economy. 10 years ago, Bush was not in office. Clinton was. Also, President Bush knows a lot more behind the scenes stuff than we do. Also, there has been improvement in Iraq.

Hmmm. I would have liked to see Adolf Hitler or any other democratically elected officials on that list... but oh well.
