HISTORIAN VIEWS REAGAN AS OUR 'WORST PRESIDENT
- Historian Henry Steele Commager, who would give no recent presidents good grades, had a one-word description for how history will remember the administration of President Ronald Reagan: "catastrophe.""He was the worst president in our history," Commager said. "Certainly no one has left a greater debt for posterity to pay or did more harm to the environment or got messed up with more militarism. In every respect you look at it, it is calamitous."
