Barack Obama is greatest president of our
lifetime, 44% of Americans say in Pew survey

USA Today, by William Cummings

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 7/11/2018 9:22:42 PM

The Pew Research Center asked Americans who they thought did the best job as president in their lifetime. The top pick: former President Barack Obama. Obama was the choice of 44 percent of the respondents in the poll, which was published Wednesday. Bill Clinton came in second with 33 percent and Ronald Reagan was third with 32 percent. Although not yet even halfway through his first term, President Donald Trump got 19 percent to place him in fourth place, ahead of both Bushes, John F. Kennedy and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. According to Pew, Obama got 20 percent at about the same

Comments:
I guess 44% are impressed with minimal accomplishments and reading a sing-songy speech off a TelePrompTer.

They "woke" when he was elected and went insane when Hillary didn´t replace him - nothing to do with logic, an understanding of history or what the U.S. of A is all about let alone what makes the rest of the world tick. Probable couldn´t name another President, didn´t want to appear ignorant or get disliked on Facebook - we live in very shallow times where love of tyranny in the pursuit of "likes" is all you need to know.

Too many voters are remarkably uninformed - and that includes some of my relatives.
The United States has survived, in part, because really uninformed voters often didn´t vote.

Obama deliberately drove a wedge between white and Black Americans, setting back race relations by about 60 years. That alone makes him the worst president in any of our lifetimes. As for the poll, it just goes to show how powerful a lockstep media can be.

Barry was the first (maybe second considering Bubba’s family) illegitimate, America-hating homosexual Muslim sympathizer to sit in the Oval Office. His ‘legacy’ has been dismantled because he imagined himself running a kingdom through edict rather than being the executive of a republic. His nominees for the Supreme Court were just as bad as Bubba’s in RBG. If pressed, I might generously rate Barry as high as fourth from the worst of all Presidents.

IIRC, they ran polls just like this about Slick Willie being the greatest President of all time all through both terms of Bush 43´s presidency.

Too funny. The media continues to perpetuate the fraud known as BHO. They built this freak and covered for him for 8 long, miserable years of speeding backwards on every front.

The beauty of this is that it will encourage the liar to be more active and that is great for thinking citizens because every candidate the liar promotes, loses. So by all means ´popular´ Barry, get out there and work some more of that magic.

What are they doing polling 10 year olds? Isn´t that illegal? Besides, they can´t even vote yet.

Did you know that according to the Urban dictionary "Bama", (like in O-bama): Originated from Black youth in Washington DC.
1. Original meaning was "can´t dress well" or "fashion misfit" and "A slang, typically used in the D.C. metropolitan area, meaning uncool. It can also describe a person who is uncool."
I don´t think their inspiration was the Alabama Crimson tide.
I think the poll takers might be a little bit off.

Important point, #10.

Anti-America propaganda has had a profound impact after 60+ years non-stop, particularly in schools.

If all you watch or have ever watched are network news and cable except FOX, you would never be challenged to think, compare, discern.

Ignorance is bliss. For a little while.

Blissful ignorance is not a good state of mind because in the long-run it´s harmful to the individual and ultimately dangerous for the wellbeing and survivability of the Body Politic, ours, our Constitutional Republic.

BO did his best to "transform" (ie deform) it. I am somewhat relieved that less than 50% chose him, seems the same percentage which has always adulated him. (and yet he was re-elected)

Polls gauge the effectiveness of propaganda.

The only thing Obama ever accomplished, besides destroying a working healthcare system and bringing racism back to life, was in hiring more black muslim militants to work in the Federal Government than anyone ever has. Those people and their relatives must have been the ones polled.

Obama´s glory may be seen in the library they built for him, which is still an empty patch of ground in Southside Chicago and will remain empty long after construction because everything he ever did must remain under the cloak of shame.

In 2008, criminal globalist George Soros manipulated Deep State Democrats into running the so-called American Barry Hussein Obama for the presidency. Purposefully done without the customary vetting of his murky past or malign intentions, the radical left knew gullible voters of both parties would drool all over themselves at electing the first black president, shrugging “who-cares” at his shady past and utopian designs on our country. A Saul Alinsky protégé before, during, and after his presidency, Obama used the Deep State’s rules to get his way, demean the American people, and advance his Marxist agenda.

Although Obama is a preening, effeminate racialist and Muslim sympathizer, Soros picked him because he was also glib, charismatic, and talked a good game. Still, he is a lying traitor with stone-cold contempt for America and American voters, convinced he was “entitled” to power and out to destroy our nation from within. Democrats can always count on the votes of three-piece Alinsky-types, but Obama lied well enough, long enough to con hosts of useful idiots into handing him eight years of deliberate malfeasance in the White House. But isn´t that always the way? Tinpot dictators always think they’re too good for the brainless peons they deign to "lead."

Determined to seal our destruction, the Soros-Obama left planned on turning the reins of government over to the equally nefarious criminal Hillary Clinton in 2016. It looked like a sure thing. Thank God Donald J. Trump stood in the way, equally determined to Make America Great Again.

Indeed, who did Pew ask? Obama and his policies were roundly repudiated in 2016.

Obama was the first ever anti-American American President. That does not make him great. It makes him infamous. It showed. Shame on the fools that voted for him, and still love him.

It only proves that 44% of our population are that freakin stupid. It also proves that most of our people, 56%, are still smart enough to know a fraud when they see one. Obama took Jimmy Carter´s place as the worst president of all time. Fact is, there was not one positive thing Obama ever did to better our country. Not one freakin thing. Do you get it yet.

Ask the same people the same question only substitute H. Clinton´s name for Obama and they would get the same result. If you have ever watch a "man-in-the-street" type interview you would know how this could happen.

Obviously they polled "pot heads" who are in favor of complete legalization of pot.

Just one more polling taken by dragging sewers and opening up access hatches on septic tanks.

I bet that the age group polled was 18 years old up to late 20s, as the only President these people know is BO. Also, they do not teach American History in government schools, so this age group likely does not know who came before BO.

I was stunned to see how low Kennedy´s rating was. His "legacy" has been retained in that there are numerous TV and movie films that glamorize the Kennedys every couple months and 6, 7 times a year the major magazines publish a huge glossy picture collections. The entire family is still so highly promoted you have under a rock to not about them.

Similar to what the magazines do with the Queen, Lady Di, and the Royal children, spouses and grand children.

Ballard’s homelessness quadrupled
last year, and anger is spilling over
Seattle Times, by Scott Greenstone    Original Article

Sara Bates unlocks the church doors on Fridays, so she was the first one to see Roxy Baker — and one of the last to see her alive. Baker, a 62-year-old woman from Kent, was brushing her hair underneath the eaves of St. Luke’s Episcopal in Ballard. She had slept there since her husband was found dead on the same church property in April. The day before, the homeless woman told Bates that she had cancer. (Snip) The rise is testing the traditionally liberal politics of Ballard, and the loudest voices are now talking about crime. Fear of crime in

LOS ANGELES — A small crowd that gathered Thursday outside the Los Angeles office of U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters to counter an expected protest by a self-styled militia group burned an American flag taken from the back of a pickup truck. The incident happened after the far-right Oath Keepers group didn´t appear at the office after saying it would rally against the congresswoman. A group of counter-protesters there to support Waters were chanting "black power" and other slogans when the pickup approached. The vehicle, occupied by two men who appeared to be white, was stopped by the crowd. Some marchers

Jeanine Pirro gave a glowing assessment of Donald Trump’s chances for 2020, saying that if the president decides to run for re-election, he would probably be unbeatable. “I have to tell you. I don’t think he can be beat right now. I think the left is so disorganized,” Pirro told TheWrap in an interview Tuesday, saying that she could not think of a single Democrat who could pose a credible threat to Trump in 2020. “They are just making fools of themselves. They protest and they are not even sure what they’re protesting,” she added. “If you say something that

The Pew Research Center asked Americans who they thought did the best job as president in their lifetime. The top pick: former President Barack Obama. Obama was the choice of 44 percent of the respondents in the poll, which was published Wednesday. Bill Clinton came in second with 33 percent and Ronald Reagan was third with 32 percent. Although not yet even halfway through his first term, President Donald Trump got 19 percent to place him in fourth place, ahead of both Bushes, John F. Kennedy and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. According to Pew, Obama got 20 percent at about the same

Christiane Amanpour and husband, Jamie Rubin, are calling it quits after 20 years of marriage. The Washington Post cited "a friend of the pair" that said the CNN host and her longtime partner are divorcing, though the split is "amicable" and "the two remain close friends." The couple wed in Rome in 1998 one year after meeting in Sarajevo, Bosnia, over "late-night margaritas." Amanpour, 60, and Rubin, 58, share an 18-year-old son, Darius. The Post reports that the host of CNN´s "Amanpour" -- and the network´s chief international correspondent -- currently lives in London, while Rubin recently moved to Washington,

Rosenstein Asks Prosecutors to Help
With Kavanaugh Papers in Unusual Request
New York Times, by Katie Benner    Original Article

WASHINGTON — Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, has asked federal prosecutors to help review the government documents of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, according to a letter obtained by The New York Times on Wednesday. Mr. Rosenstein’s request was an unusual insertion of politics into federal law enforcement. While the Justice Department has helped work on previous Supreme Court nominations, department lawyers in Washington typically carry out that task, not prosecutors who pursue criminal investigations nationwide. But in an email sent this week to the nation’s 93 United States attorneys, Mr. Rosenstein asked each

Democrats ready ´Abolish ICE´
legislation that would shutter
agency, shift immigration law enforcement
Chicago Tribune, by Jeff Stein and David Weigel    Original Article

A Democratic proposal to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement would shutter the agency, probe whether its agents had flouted international law, and create a special commission to rethink how the federal government handles asylum seekers and undocumented immigrants. The text of Rep. Mark Pocan´s "Abolish ICE" bill, obtained Tuesday by The Washington Post, was sent to House Democrats as they returned from the Fourth of July recess. The legislation, still being tweaked before release, is co-sponsored by Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., and Rep. Adriano Espaillat, D-N.Y., both of whom are immigrants. In an interview, Pocan, D-Wis., said the legislation would

Whoopi Goldberg exploded on Judge Jeanine Pirro in a fiery on-air debate about president Donald Trump on Thursday´s episode of The View. Towards the end of the show, Pirro praised Trump with lowering the unemployment rate for the first time in 50 years for ´minorities, Hispanics and African Americans´ but Goldberg and fellow The View co-host Sunny Hostin said the credit should be given to former president Barack Obama. Pirro fired back saying: ´You´re suffering from Trump derangement in this room.´ When the View co-host and Trump opponent Meghan McCain said she wasn´t deranged, Pirro pointed at Goldberg, setting the

The Trump-Helsinki summit brought new accusations in Congress Thursday, as GOP Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona accused the president of providing ´aid and comfort´ to the enemy. Flake´s choice of words evoked the Constitution´s definition of treason – at a time when President Trump is facing a new level of scrutiny for his refusal to forcefully condemn Russian President Vladimir Putin for election meddling during their summit meeting Monday in Finland. ´By choosing to reject objective reality in Helsinki, the president let down the free world by giving aid and comfort to an enemy of democracy. In so doing he

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney tore into President Trump on Monday after Trump challenged the intelligence community´s assessment that Russia meddled in the 2016 election, calling Trump´s behavior "disgraceful and detrimental to our democratic principles." Romney´s comments came hours after Trump held a joint news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland, in which he questioned whether Russia was behind efforts to meddle in the 2016 election. "President Trump´s decision to side with Putin over American intelligence agencies is disgraceful and detrimental to our

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Three-year-old twins Zyler and Kadyn Sharpe scurried around the boys and girls clothing racks of a narrow consignment store filled with toys. Zyler, wearing rainbow leggings, scrutinized a pair of hot-pink-and-purple sneakers. Kadyn, in a T-Rex shirt, fixated on a musical cube that flashed colorful lights. At a glance, the only discernible difference between these fraternal twins is their hair — Zyler’s is brown and Kadyn’s is blond. Is Zyler a boy or a girl? How about Kadyn? That’s a question their parents, Nate and Julia Sharpe, say only the twins can decide. The Cambridge, Mass., couple

President Trump’s longtime lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, secretly recorded a conversation with Mr. Trump two months before the presidential election in which they discussed payments to a former Playboy model who said she had an affair with Mr. Trump, according to lawyers and others familiar with the recording. The F.B.I. seized the recording this year during a raid on Mr. Cohen’s office. The Justice Department is investigating Mr. Cohen’s involvement in paying women to tamp down embarrassing news stories about Mr. Trump ahead of the 2016 election. Prosecutors want to know whether that violated federal campaign finance laws, and any

A recent poll shows grassroots Republicans approve of Presient Donald Trump´s performance in Helsinki, despite the best efforts of liberal Democrats and media pundits to trash the president for absolutely everything he did/does and said/says. The Axios/SurveyMonkey poll asked,"Do you approve or disapprove of the way Trump handled his press conference with Putin?" Seventy-nine percent of Republicans approved. "Who the hell are these people?" an incredulous Joe Scarborough, host of MSNBC´s "Morning Joe," asked on Friday´s show. He and his ilk are stunned that President Trump would invite Russian President Vladimir Putin to the United States, when Trump´s recent meeting

Since her surprise primary victory over 10-term Congressman Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th District, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been promoted by the media as the prototype of a new generation of young progressives destined to replace the leadership of the Democratic Party. Unfortunately for her media boosters, however, she keeps blowing her lines. It’s not just her rote advocacy of single-payer healthcare and guaranteed government jobs, or even that she backs wacky ideas like abolishing ICE and occupying airports — Ocasio-Cortez is genuinely clueless. She outed herself, in several recent interviews, as functionally illiterate in economics, international relations, and history.
