Nemo's Brother:  If he does lead us into WW3 over Syria, he will be the worst one though.


If he finds the philosopher's stone and uses it to fix healthcare in this country, he'll be one of the better presidents we've had though.  This is about as likely as your scenario.

How does Andrew "Trail of Tears" Jackson not top that list?  Really?  Being the progenitor of modern genocide is a pretty serious thing.

Parthenogenetic: Obama's Reptiloid Master: Frozboz: Alright, I'll bite.  What reasons does he give as to *why* he's the worst ever?  Is it all typical Republican echo chamber nonsense?

1. Blackity black black
2. Soshulisms
3. Muslinry and mahometanism
4. Arugula
5. Killing the middle class by allowing them to afford health care

"Mahometanism"?  Really?  Do you think the intended audience is sufficiently erudite and familiar with historical terms that this will raise their hackles?

My friend, "Muslin", "palling around with turrists", or "Islamofascist" will do.  "Dhimmi" or "Dhimmi-crat" might, but usually only with the fringers.


You'd be surprised how many of them markedly use the spelling "Moslem".

That's not much of a fight.

Nixon went to China, and he started the EPA.  There was just that unfortunate thing at the end where he turned out to think he was above the law.  The country didn't actually completely crumble while he was president.
George W. sat on his thumbs until 9/11 happened, cracked down on our liberties, and ran the country into huge debt and depression.  He earned his place amongst some of the genuine biggest farkup presidents in history, not just the ones in our lifetimes.

Yea Filmore, what have you done lately?  Also, Clinton put a few nails in the middle class coffin too, but Reagan trickling down on everyone got that ball rolling.
But for the over all win gotta go W... 43 get's the nod for the trifecta of shredding international favor, which right after 9/11 was at an all time high. An actual statesman could have built on that...  Increasing the wild west style cutting of corporate and financial sector regulation to the benefit of the 1%.  And the how many billion dollar lie that didn't even make the books that was Iraq 2, shock and awe boogaloo. Which was a part of the first point, and a part of the second, but gets it's own point for it's shear size, the whole finishing daddy's war element.  And "If you're not with us you're against us." that one could argue is the seed that became the Tea Party.

That's kind of a lofty status to give to a bloodthirsty Native-hater. Ol' Andy didn't progenate crap, he's one more in a LOOOOOOOOOOOOONG line of American leaders who genocided Native tribes out of existence in the 18th and 19th centuries.

// and I'd say that the first to track a genocide's progress and victims with computers would be the progenitors of "modern" genocide

What's wrong with Millard Fillmore? He opened Japan to Western trade.
 
2013-08-26 10:39:30 AM  
Truman and Lyndon Johnson sacrificed a lot of young Americans in meaningless wars. That makes them suck badly. The body count of Bush II's meaningless war was a bad month in Vietnam, but he still sucked.

Obama doesn't belong on any worst presidents list.

Frozboz: Alright, I'll bite.  What reasons does he give as to *why* he's the worst ever?  Is it all typical Republican echo chamber nonsense?


I'm going to give the author the benefit of the doubt and assume it's not racially motivated.  If we assume that, then my only explanation is that Obama is the worst President ever because he has the audacity to occupy the Oval Office without being a a Republican.

In today's world, everything is sensationalized to the point where whatever is going on right now is the MOST IMPORTANT EVER, so history is irrelevant.  The populace's attention span has been steadily degenerating to the point where we have the memory of a goldfish.  Every crisis going on now is more important than any other that has ever occurred.  Every scandal is the worst ever.  Every bit of drama outshines any that has ever happened before.  Therefore, whatever the current President does outweighs anything all previous Presidents have done, combined.

Obama's on the other team, and he's currently the one in power.  That's the worst thing that's ever happened, according to simple minds.

There are some days where it's not as bad though, but the first two headlines greened today show that will not be the case.

Lost Thought 00: give me doughnuts: Nope. W and Nixon are still fighting for the top spot.

Both of them pale in comparison to Polk. Hoover has to be in the running as well, though I think he shoulders too much blame.


POLK! But I was assured of the following by They MIght Be Giants:

In 1844, the Democrats were split
The three nominees for the presidential candidate
Were Martin Van Buren, a former president and an abolitionist
James Buchanan, a moderate
Louis Cass, a general and expansionist
From Nashville came a dark horse riding up
He was James K. Polk, Napoleon of the Stump

Austere, severe, he held few people dear
His oratory filled his foes with fear
The factions soon agreed
He's just the man we need
To bring about victory
Fulfill our manifest destiny
And annex the land the Mexicans command
And when the votes were cast the winner was
Mister James K. Polk, Napoleon of the Stump

In four short years he met his every goal
He seized the whole southwest from Mexico
Made sure the tarriffs fell
And made the English sell the Oregon territory
He built an independent treasury
Having done all this he sought no second term
But precious few have mourned the passing of
Mister James K. Polk, our eleventh president
Young Hickory, Napoleon of the Stump

Yet with all the looming evidence to the contrary,... just some of the lies again exposed in this article, liberal farkers will defend him.
Americans are really screwed if we don't put a stop to Obamacare.  The President knows this too but it is the only thing he can hang his hat on as president and he's "hopingtm "for the best possible outcome.  Guess what folks, we're not getting the best possible outcome, that is so obvious and if you don't believe me just ask the 15,000 spouses of UPS employees mentioned in the article.

He was inexperienced and incompetent in 2008, he now has 5+ years of experience at being an incompetent president.

But Bush..Romney..McCain..Paul...  focus on Obama and his record.  Bringing down anyone else doesn't raise Obama.

So your entire argument is based upon... a company cutting costs to improve its bottom line?

There are three simple in Obama's record right now.
1. We're out of Iraq.
2. We're getting out of Afghanistan.
3. We're not in Iran.
You couldn't guarantee all three of those same points on the records of hypothetical McCain or Romney presidencies. Any expenditures related to health care are drops in the bucket compared to the money and lives wasted on the last decade's overseas ventures.
