George Will: Let’s face it — besides Nixon’s, this is pretty much the worst second term, ever
Hot Air ^ | November 11, 2013 | Erika Johnsen

It’s been a rough fifth year in office for President Obama, with overwrought sequestration scare tactics, Scandalpalooza, and the Syrian debacle all chipping away at his leadership street cred, among other things — but this disaster of an ObamaCare rollout is really hammering the heightened disapproval home with what’s starting to look like a majority of Americans. During past job-performance dips, O’s job approval rating has been reliably bolstered by his personal favorability ratings and Americans’ sense of trust in him — but the health care law is helping to erode those usual go-to’s, and quickly.

Lincoln’s second term was pretty bad.

I know a lot of Freepers profess a loathing of Lincoln but I think it's safe to say that the Obamanation's legacy will be viewed less in favor by history than Lincoln's.

Worse than Nixon. Nixon had media opposition. The Clown has the media’s worship.

The scenes in the bowels of the WH must rival a horror movie. The ‘players’ are turning against each other for all the mistakes and overreaches. The power behind the throne (Jarrett) is standing in quicksand.

No comparison. This is the...worst...ever! Nixon wasn’t trying to take down America. I wish these idiots would quit treating this like it’s just another presidency!

and Americans’ sense of trust in him

America is a very naive country in many respects. Heck, we nearly elected Al Gore to the presidency. Just sayin...

Nixon’s great sin was that he tried to protect some underlings. Compare that to Obama and see who is the worst.

Obama's regime is the worst in history, bar none. Nixon, who at least was for America, got kicked out over the coverup of a second-rate burglary. Obama, on the other hand, is an out-and-out traitor who hates America and is doing everything in his power to destroy it. It took a while for us to recover from the Carter Administration, previously the worst in our history. The prospects of our recovery from this one remains an open question.

It’s disgraceful to mention Nixon in conjunction with Obama or Clinton. And yet it’s done over and over.

When you do so, you infer they haven’t reached his level of depravity. To the contrary, Clibton and Obama are far far worse than Nixon.

Compared to Obama’s deceit, lies, fraud, traitorous actions and criminality Nixon looks like a wayward schoolboy.

Who Killed Michael Hastings?

Reflexively distrustful, eager to make powerful enemies, the young journalist whose Mercedes exploded in Los Angeles one night couldn’t possibly have died accidentally, could he?

Lincoln tops the list of horrible Presidents. No one else comes close.
