    You should have the option of 'Both as evil as eachother'

    George Snr laid out most of the pathways for George Jnr to wade in and start wars.

    Evil as eachother, thats my vote!!

    Maybe Bush I, just because I've already survived his reign.

    Recently saw John Cleese. To paraphrase him: President Bush is busy exporting democracy to the rest of the world so that there's less of it here to trouble him.

    Yeah Taffy, I thought about it. But in terms of "lesser of two evils" it's known that they are both bad/evil/etc.....but if you had a choice, which one is less evil?



    Did they not teach that in Wales? :icon_wink: :icon_wink:

    Indeed they did!

    It was noted that you portrayed them both as evil, which is why I suggested an answer as 'both as evil as eachother' - i.e. neither is the lesser of the two evils!

    Anyway, I guess it would have to be Bush Jnr, cos Snr isn't in power anymore, making Jnr the more significant evil at present.

    The sad truth is though, that I don't believe Bush Jnr truly is in power. He just seems to be the idiotic frontman for the real power behind the scenes. There's no way a man of his seemingly limited intelligence could successfully run a country such as the US.

    always assuming that he is running it succesfully, that's a whole new debate in itself..

    Have to agree with that and also agree with Nattydread's comment.

    I'd suggest another category 'Neither of them are up to much'. That would give a few more people a chance to vote :icon_biggrin: .

    Dick Cheney, on the other hand... Isn't his middle name Mephisto?
