Can someone introduce Thomas Ricks to George W. Bush?

Thomas Ricks wonders:
 Was John F. Kennedy the flat-out absolute worst U.S. president of the 20th century?
Is he kidding?  
Would JFK ignore a Presidential Daily Brief entitled "Osama Bin Laden Determined to Strike Within the U.S." 
Would JFK wave hello to Stevie Wonder? 
Did JFK utter these gems? 

"I'm telling you there's an enemy that would like to attack America, Americans, again. There just is. That's the reality of the world. And I wish him all the very best."

"You know, I'm the President during this period of time, but I think when the history of this period is written, people will realize a lot of the decisions that were made on Wall Street took place over a decade or so, before I arrived in President, during I arrived in President."

"And they have no disregard for human life." --George W. Bush, on the brutality of Afghan fighters, Washington, D.C., July 15, 2008

"Amigo! Amigo!" --George W. Bush, calling out to Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi in Spanish at the G-8 Summit, Rusutsu, Japan, July 10, 2008

“Families is where our nation finds hope, where wings take dream.”

"I know how hard it is for you to put food on your family."
