The Well-Deserved Unkindness of History

We weren't imagining it: George W really was the worst modern president, say 238 leading
presidential scholars. The Siena Research Institute says Bush was the
most incompetent president since Warren Harding in 1923, and one of the
fifth worst ever based on factors like intelligence, communication,
foreign policy and economic matters. I'm sure many Iraqis could expound
on that. Maybe at his war crimes trial, they'll get to.

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do.
