Poll: Obama Worst President Since
World War II, Bush Off the Hook

Mediaite, by Evan McMurry

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/2/2014 10:22:21 AM

According to a Quinnipiac poll, a plurality of voters named President Barack Obama as the worst president since World War Two, claiming the title from his predecessor George W Bush. 33% of respondents named Obama as the worst, with Bush coming in at 28%. 13% named Nixon and 8% History’s Greatest Monster, with the rest all escaping under three percent. Ronald Reagan was honored as the best with 35%, with Bill Clinton trailing at 18% and John F. Kennedy at 15%. If Obama’s looking for a silver lining, it’s that at this point of his presidency Bush far outpaced his competitors for

Comments:
We didn´t need no stinkin´ poll to tell us that!! I will also say, Bush was NOT a horrible president. I disagreed with some of what he did, but he never, ever put Americans in danger in every single way nor destroy us socially and economically. Secondly, Obama is the worst president in the history of this country not since WWII!!!

Ummm, no.
This lets Jimmuh Carter off the hook for sure, and Bubba Clinton too.

Bush was hardly a Ronald Reagan, but his big error was thinking he could work with Dems in a bipartisan manner. That got us the Medicare Prescrption Plan and No Child Left Behind (with Ted Kennedy), TARP I, GM bailout, etc.
Bush wasn´t evil or incompetent (like Obama, Carter, and Clinton). He just never realized that the Dems were his enemies, and stupidly never, ever called out the media for the lying smears they were laying on him.

The amazing thing is that Obama got this low number with the media constantly shucking and jiving for him, covering for him, excusing him, and praising him. Bush got low numbers because the media started pounding him the day he took office.

Why did it take so long for these idiots to figure him out? Are they just stupid, naive or both?

When Obama said he was willing to let his daughters kill his grandchildren if they were found to be pregnant and didn´t want to be, says it all. He has absolutely no respect for human life, not even when it´s his own flesh and blood.

Many knew who and what he was in short order. And he has certainly lived up to our low expectations.

No

His worst action was Iraq and Afgan and the ill fated nation building that he tried. Iraq never should have happened. Cheney can wolf all he wants but there was no WMD when we attacked them, if it was on those trucks to Syria he should have done something about he did not. To take a guess and then base a War on it was absurd and foolish He was a fool. I expect more from a President.

Then he tried to con us with immigration reform but gave it up when the outrage was to much saying he was sending the national guard to the border do dig holes. Give me a break.

Then there was the failure of leadership to do something about the 2008 collapse of the economy it which the US Treasury Sec (Snow)went to congress in 2005 I believe but he did nothing about it even tried to get credit for the minorities being able to buy homes. Give me a break. He saved more international banks then he did our economy .

Worst Presidents since world war 2 start with

Obama then Johnson then Bush then Carter.

Best Reagan then Eisenhower

The time for games is over. On Tuesday, America got a horrific wake-up call: Islamic State terrorists released a gruesome video that shows them beheading James Wright Foley, an American photojournalist held in Syria since 2012. The group also showed another US journalist held hostage, Steven Joel Sotloff, and threatened to murder him as well. “The life of this American citizen, Obama, depends on your next decision,” declares the masked terrorist as he holds Sotloff by the neck. True, that puts President Obama in a difficult spot. But the president must do whatever it takes to counter this vicious savagery:

Two recent interviews have been the topic of lively debate within the so-called “foreign-policy community.” First, President Obama told The New York Times’ Thomas Friedman that he envisioned a world in which wars end with “no victor, no vanquished.” Can you imagine Franklin Roosevelt or Winston Churchill embracing such an idea? Even more inconceivable: that those who proclaim themselves jihadis would do anything but laugh their heads off (you should excuse the expression) if they heard it. Next, Hillary Clinton told The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg, “Great nations need organizing principles,” and that Mr. Obama’s motto, “Don’t do stupid stuff,” is “not

EDGARTOWN, Mass.— President Barack Obama says the United States will continue to confront Islamic State extremists despite the brutal murder of journalist James Foley. Obama says the entire world is “appalled” by Foley’s killing. The president says he spoke Wednesday with Foley’s family and offered condolences. He says the Islamic State abducts women and children, and tortures, rapes, enslaves and kills people. He said the Islamic State targets Christians and other minorities and aims to commit genocide. Obama spoke Wednesday from Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, where he’s vacationing with his family, a day after the militants released a video showing the American journalist

In a few minutes, President Obama will address the nation about the beheading of an America by the terrorist group ISIS. But before facing the cameras, Obama sent out a fundraising appeal. "Nothing has ever been more important than fighting for folks like you. You are my priority," writes Obama. "And right now, a focus of that fight has to be getting people who really care about making things better for you elected. The upcoming elections could determine whether or not we have a Congress who will work with me to help you. "That´s why it´s so important I spend

Sergeant Kevin Ahlbrand, president of the Missouri Fraternal Order of Police, says the police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown has been vilified in the press and by politicians before the facts are known. "Justice needs to go both ways," Ahlbrand told Fox News´s Megyn Kelly Tuesday night. "We routinely don´t comment on these cases until the facts are in. But we thought it was very necessary that we say, hey, we´re open for a very thorough investigation, but we´re very concerned about the due process rights of Darren."

"No stops in Missouri?" a reporter asked Harf. "I told you they´re in Washington now," she responded.

With Barack Obama´s approval ratings lately barely cracking 40 percent, plenty of Democrats will keep their distance from the president heading into the midterms, just as Alex Sink did she when ran for governor in 2010. Not Charlie Crist, who said today he hopes to be campaigning side by side with the president. "I hope so," he said when asked about campaigning with Obama. "I hope everybody does." His comments came as he, Carole Crist, and St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman left the Supervisor of Elections office in downtown St. Petersburg, after casting their ballots early.

Yesterday, a video depicting the beheading of American journalist James Wright Foley was posted on YouTube. The jihadist in the video spoke with a London accent, prompting questions about whether the man was in fact a British national. In response to these questions, British Prime Minister David Cameron suspended his vacation and vowed to get to the bottom of the situation. Obama, on the other hand, returned to Martha´s Vineyard late Tuesday evening to rejoin his family on vacation. A statement was released through a spokesman late last night that said Obama was "appalled" by the gruesome beheading. Compare: The Prime Minist

The U.S. intelligence community has confirmed the authenticity of a video showing Islamic State extremists beheading American journalist James Foley, as military analysts and U.S. lawmakers say the execution should be a wake-up call to the need to dismantle the militant organization. President Obama, currently in Martha´s Vineyard, plans to make a statement at 12:45 p.m. ET. The remarks come after the White House National Security Council released a brief statement saying the intelligence community reviewed the video and has "reached the judgment that this video is authentic." The beheading marks the first time the Islamic State -- also known as ISIS, or

HENDERSON, Ky. — Mitch McConnell has a game plan to confront President Barack Obama with a stark choice next year: Accept bills reining in the administration’s policies or veto them and risk a government shutdown. In an extensive interview here, the typically reserved McConnell laid out his clearest thinking yet of how he would lead the Senate if Republicans gain control of the chamber. The emerging strategy: Attach riders to spending bills that would limit Obama policies on everything from the environment to health care, consider using an arcane budget tactic to circumvent Democratic filibusters and force the president to “move

The Gateway Pundit can now confirm from two local St. Louis sources that police Officer Darren Wilson suffered facial fractures during his confrontation with deceased 18 year-old Michael Brown. Officer Wilson clearly feared for his life during the incident that led to the shooting death of Brown. This was after Michael Brown and his accomplice Dorian Johnson robbed a local Ferguson convenience store. Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.” This comes from a source within the District Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis County Police.

President Obama returned to his vacation home at Martha’s Vineyard after briefly interrupting his vacation for two days of meetings in Washington, D.C. Obama met with his economic team Tuesday before leaving the White House at 4:22 pm to return to his vacation home. He did not react to the news that broke later that evening about an ISIS video that showed the beheading of American journalist James Wright Foley. The National Security Council reacted, however, in a statement provided by spokesperson Caitlin Hayden. “We have seen a video that purports to be the murder of U.S. citizen James Foley by ISIL,” Hayden said.

In July, after Germany trounced Brazil 7–1 in the semifinal match of the World Cup—including a first-half stretch in which the Brazilian soccer squad gave up an astonishing five goals in 19 minutes—a sports commentator wrote: “This was not a team losing. It was a dream dying.” These words could equally describe what has become of Barack Obama’s foreign policy since his second inauguration. The president, according to the infatuated view of his political aides and media flatterers, was supposed to be playing o jogo bonito, the beautiful game—ending wars, pressing resets, pursuing pivots, and restoring America’s good name abroad.

The Islamic State’s official media just released a graphic video showing the beheading of American journalist James Foley, who was taken in northwest Syria on Thanksgiving Day 2012. The ISIS terrorist in the video says that the beheading is revenge for President Obama’s recent airstrikes on ISIS targets in Iraq. The video, viewed in full by PJM, begins with a snippet of Obama speaking about the strikes, then shifts to images of the strikes with a title that reads, “American Aggression Against the Islamic State.” The title card then says a “A Message to America.” Foley, with a shaved head, was

From nearly 1,000 miles away, several Redskins players used the Monday Night Football stage to draw attention to the situation that has been unfolding in Ferguson, Missouri by running onto FedExField with their hands up in the air. Ferguson is where unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by a white police officer on Aug. 9. Witnesses have said he was not aggressive toward the officer and had his hands raised above his head before he was shot. As a result, the words “hands up, don’t shoot” have become a rallying cry of protesters, both in Ferguson and online.
