Bush was bad enough to chase me out of the Republican party, if you care to argue the current resident “sucks less” knock yourself out. That seems to be the most frequently used retort when the current administration is criticized. I sometimes argue that premise but, even if one accepts as gospel the current administration being better than the last, I’d really like to set the bar higher than “ sucks Less”.
