Bush Presidency a Failure - The Survey

In an article longer than the actual survey conducted by the History News Network, the New York Times blog, The Board (the bored?), says that 98% of historians believe the George W. Bush presidency has been a failure.

98% - that's alot of historians. 109 historians in a world population of 6,661,608,921 - that's not alot of historians. The NYT makes a special point of one point of the survey: The survey also made clear that James Buchanan has some work to do rehabilitating his whole catapulted-the-nation-into-Civil-War reputation. The problem with this is that it's not a question on the 2008 questionnaire; perhaps it was on the 2004 HNN survey. No fair conflating the two surveys and pretending it is one and the same, NYT. Shame, shame, I say!

You would think this would be one very long, in-depth, far reaching, probing survey. Right? Let's see.

Here, in it's unedited entirety, is the whole survey:

We will limit the survey to two questions, followed by an opportunity to give comments:

1. On balance, do you consider the presidency of George W. Bush to have been a success or failure?

Success ___

Failure ___

2. Forty-two people have been president of the United States. At this point, where would you rate the presidency of George W. Bush in comparison to those of the other men who have held the office?

Best Ever ___

2-10 ___

11-20 ___

21-30 ___

31-41 ___

Worst Ever ___

Whew! That wore me out just reading it, nevermind having to answer both questions.
