    According to 91 historians I assume chosen by C-Span, Bush was way worse.

    Obama was listed as 12th best, GW was 33rd.

    Although I would expect that for Obama, and even for Bush, it's a bit early on to be able to fully evaluate the effects of their policies and actions.

    It's impossible to compare presidents since they all face different challenges.

    You must be kidding. This belongs on the political humor board.

    The OP is one of the funnier posts I've seen. Posters are answering it like there is an actual comparison point which makes it even funnier.

    This post is a stab at that reality you just mentioned. In their upside down world the OP made sense.

    I'm curious what they were using as the basis for the scores, I tried, but the links didn't open on the iPad.

    I mean, a president from 100 years ago is hard to gauge performance compared to a more modern president...

    That's fair, I don't start many threads, and there's not really many meaningful ways to compare.

    Thanks, and yes, it's not something that has a concrete answer, but I constantly see posts / threads saying one or the other was worse for your country... I was mostly curious what perspectives and metrics people might use.
    Thanks from Minotaur

    Bush led to obama and obama led us to trump.

    Who does the left think is worse again?

    That's totally true, bush made republicans so hated that it was inevitably going to be a democrat, Obama with his silver tongue and sharp looks created that perfect contrast.

    And Obama, had pushed your country quite far left in a short time, so, I could see some pushback towards conservatism... I think when Clinton robbed Bernie, that was what sealed things for trump... She was just far too corrupt and not very shy about it.

    So, a big portion of trumps support was likely due to the anti-Clinton contingent... Which the media seems obsessed with trying to prove was Russians.

    How about if you think in terms of each isolation, in the sense of looking at all the good and bad things added together compared? Would that be a way to make a comparison?

    Son of a... damn, I hate agreeing with Spookycolt.

    To expand on that, sometimes a different kind of president may be somewhat of a failure during one specific time period or era while he may have been a success during a different era.
