Poll: Obama 'worst president' since World War II (reported by USA Today)
Vanity ^ | 7/2/2014 | Vanity

Posted on 07/02/2014 6:58:07 AM PDT by unlearner

I did not realize or had forgotten that USA Today articles could not be posted. That is why my search turned up no results. But I wanted to point out that when a liberal rag like this publishes unfavorable polls about Obama, you know he is in trouble.

A Quinnipiac University Poll, named Obama the worst president since World War II. Most people think the nation would be better off if Romney had won.

TOPICS: News/Current Events; Your Opinion/Questions
KEYWORDS:
Buyer's remorse for those who voted for Obama.

I was one of those who held my nose and voted for Romney as the lesser of two evils. I understand the sentiments of those here who refuse to vote for a Rino. But it is telling how many say we would be better off if Romney had won. I am not sure how I would answer that poll question myself. As bad as Obama is, we can no longer afford to allow liberals to run as Republicans and misrepresent what conservatism can accomplish.

Reagan is regarded as the best post WW2 president by most, and he was the most conservative. Conservatism works. Liberalism has lofty goals and dreams and ideas that can only be achieved (supposedly) if liberals get more and more power and spend more and more money.

Since USA Today is linked from the FR home page, I assume that a link to the article is okay to post here. If not, admin please remove.

There is no way Romney would have been a worse president. Inexperience, poor work ethic, pettiness, strident ideological approaches, and plain ignorance make Obama the worst president in US history. Carter steps up a notch.

Wrong: Obama is the worst President in the history of the Republic. He has literally destroyed the USA, economically, worldwide and politically and has set African-Americans back 100 years!!!

This America-hating Muslim has no business being referred to, discussed as or legitimized as what the traditional meaning of an American President is. An absolute shell.

This is what pi$$es me off so much when I hear ‘pundits’ like George Will, Charles Krauthammer, Bill Kristol or the like calmly talking about this man as “legitimate President” who, while playing the tyrant STILL has the best interests of this country at heart. BULL! They’re all just featherbedding opportunists in it for their own advancement.

Obama Says He's The Fourth Best President Ever
(click for video)

For the first time, I agree with Obama on something.

PRESIDENTIAL RATINGS

  1. George Washington and Reagan tie for first place
  2. 17 presidents tie for second
  3. 23 tie for third
  4. Obama stands alone in fourth place

There have been 44 presidencies but only 43 men sworn into office.
Grover Cleveland served two non-consecutive terms as both the 22nd and 24th president

It could be that these recent negative articles/polls are designed to push Hillary for 2016.

Can she run as an extension — Term 3 — of the Obama Administration? Is that what the Dems want to run on?

If not, they have to distance her from the ‘ills’ of the Obama Administration, so she can run as someone who will correct those ills. She had already hinted a few weeks ago that she would be running as an extention of the ‘successes’ of hubby BJ’s administration.

Will she be perceived as Obama Term 3 or Bubba Term 3?

‘Inexperience, poor work ethic, pettiness, strident ideological approaches, and plain ignorance make Obama the worst president in US history.’

It’s a good list, but you left something out. Namely, the fact that Obama rules like a foreigner. You don’t have to believe he was born in Kenya to grasp that this is his POV. He makes it clear with each policy statement, each executive action, & above all with each comment he makes while on foreign soil. He does not see America as an American; he sees us through the eyes of the more resentful, chip-on-their-shoulders anti-American foreigners. That is the single worst thing about his reign, imho.

The title of the linked article was “Poll: Obama ‘worst president’ since World War II”. It appears that by putting ‘worst president’ in single quotes, USA Today is being subtle in attempting to soften these damaging findings as they relate to Obama.

Conservatism works.

Yet even republican politicians characterize conservatives as 'extremists' these days.

Interesting way to look at it. The deconstruction of Obama (orchestrated by the Clintons) may be underway.

The Clintons can't win if they tray to ruin the bamster. Even they aren't stupid enough to cross their base and believe they can get away with it.

This appears to be happening in spite of the democrat/media complex. It's actually miraculous it didn't happen earlier.

Unfortunately, liberalism is the truest form of “talk is cheap”. They never deliver on the wonderful things, but accuse republicans of trying to take them away. We REALLY have an uneducated public that keeps on believing such crap.

Everywhere you look, the country’s a mess. Major scandals are popping on a weekly basis. The economy is stuck in the mud. Obama is sinking in virtually every poll. And there’s a good chance that Dems will get slammed in November.

I don’t think the Clintons want to be associated with any of those (and other) debacles and will do what they can do distance themselves from Obama’s long string of epic failures that will probably continue to worsen for two more years. I think the country has had enough of Obama and, as polls are showing, he is becoming politically toxic.

Obama's wrong. He's the FIFTH best President.

Numerically, BHO's the 44th, and the list adds up to 43.

That leaves the formerly last-"best" president, Jimmy Carter, to own the #4 ranked position alone, pushing BHO to #5.

The Clintons are in big trouble. I've been saying for months now that it's unlikely she will be the dem nominee.

Yes, they may TRY to make it look like she and the bamster are not joined at the hip, but it's not going to work with very many people. If they go too hard at trying to separate it will destroy their credibility with the leftist base.

It's a problem.

Like I said earlier, I don't believe they are at the root of the current national perception of the bamster. They're just trying to figure out how to deal with it, and frankly Hillary isn't a good enough politician or smart enough to figure it out.

You think Obama cares and takes offense to that title?

He came to the WH with a plan in mind and, as far as he is concerned, he is the most successful president in recent history to thoroughly change the country as he plotted it from the beginning.

His only surprise is that it was accomplished more easily than he had expected it to be.

” worst President in the history of the Republic. “

Usually historians wait a few decades to rank presidents.

But, in this case by any measure Obama should be at the bottom of the list.

There have been incompetent presidents before, but Obama’s policies of degrdation have readied the nation for the dust bin.

Especially if your enemies were to launch a major attack in the next few years.

Ranked as the worst US president is a badge of honor for Obama.

I searched by article / title, not by subject. This particular article was not posted, so I attempted to post it. That is when I found the reason it was not posted earlier is because of the source.

Yes, I know that the poll has been discussed. I posted to point out that it is getting covered even in the liberal USA Today, which I found surprising.

It is not too late because of Obama. This country is in decline because the citizenry is also corrupt. The majority are complicit with murder, theft, and sexual immorality (including perversion).

The entertainment industry spews out pornographic TV shows and movies targeted to family audiences, and the public gobbles it up. Neither conservatives nor liberals who claim to be Christian will boycott a movie due to using God’s title or Jesus’s name as a curse word. This is far, far worse than using racial slurs which results in the destruction of careers these days.

This nation is getting the government it deserves. We have the best politicians money can buy. There is no political cure for what ails this nation.

If the nation turns back to God, it can be saved. But this appears very unlikely. However, God will preserve a remnant. It may be that a great nation will rise from the ashes of this one once the fighting is over.
