Skip to comments.THE WORST PRESIDENT?
Posted on 07/13/2014 5:27:06 AM PDT by Beave Meister
Wow. A reputable poll shows that the public believes Barack Obama is the worst president since World War II. Worse than Richard M. Nixon, driven from the presidency by Watergate? Much. Worse than Jimmy Carter, for decades the very symbol of the feckless chief executive? Loads. Worse than George W. Bush, still a lightning rod on the left and a symbol of disappointment on the right? Definitely.
These startling poll results set loose the predictable reaction: A flurry of told-you-so nods on the right and a fusillade of this-tells-us-nothing assertions on the left. For once, they're both right.
Obama is in trouble, no matter how carefully you peel through the Quinnipiac University poll that is causing such a firestorm. There's almost no good news there, or anywhere else, for the president. Then again, this worst-president poll sheds little light. Almost every veteran observer of polls and presidents will likely attest to that.
First, the trouble.

I’m still clinging to James Buchanan, barely.
He is definitely not the worst since WWII...there’s no doubt he’s the worst in American history. Just one of his many egregious scandals exceeds Nixon’s Watergate. And Nixon knew how to be a president!
Jimmie Carter is happy with this news.
Worse than Wilson or LBJ?
They used to call Hitler a ‘paperhanger’. Our President is a ‘curtain-hanger.’ That about sums it up.
Democrats are using the full force of every government agency to attack conservatives. EPA, IRS, Dept of education, Justice dept, etc.
The media is complicit in all these attacks.
I'm just waiting for the revolution to begin.
The fact that ANYONE in polite company discusses the topic of an Obama as a legitimate President with good intentions is an insult to our forefathers.
For years, I’ve seen George Will, Charles Krauthammer, Bill Kristol, even Brit Hume et al sit on those Sunday talk shows and throughout the week and calmly discuss him as such. A President with honest differences in ideology, and gee, can’t we all just get along and see the logic of it all?
BS. BS to the maximum. They are all now getting more outspoken, but where in the hell were they for 5 years? Where?
He’s the first one to truly hate America. Even Carter and Clinton (as much as I hate to admit it) don’t hate America. Carter’s policies were (and his current thinking is) the functional equivalent of hatred of America, but I don’t think he actually feels the emotion. Obama feels the emotion... and lives it. And Clinton was (and is) just the most corrupt person in American History, nothing in his thinking is deep enough to qualify for hatred of America.
If it's coming I don't know how much more we can take before we lose all ability to revolt.
James Buchanan, our first gay president, holds a narrow lead only because BO hasn’t started a Civil War. Yet.
Yes, and more destructive. That doesn't compliment the two you cited. He's just that bad. H might destroy the country.
Wilson lbj fdr were awful. None were as Marxist as Barry.
Stop paying federal taxes.
I believe that Carter did not hate America until he left office.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
