60 Minutes Broadcast Edits Out Laughable Obama Claim as 4th Best President
Newsbusters ^ | December 16, 2011 | P.J. Gladnick

George Washington was the father of our country.

Eh! No big deal. Barack Obama is better...at least in his own mind. Such was the laughably absurd claim of President Obama on 60 Minutes last Sunday. What? You didn't see it? That was because 60 Minutes conveniently left it out of its broadcast. If you want to see Obama engage in this latest bit of over the top braggadocio you can only see it at the online 60 Minutes Overtime which has a video of the entire interview. You can catch Obama's excessive praise of himself at the tail end of the interview starting with Steve Kroft's question just before the 55 minute mark:

What do we expect from 60 minutes? The 60 minutes staff are probably all working for the Obama re-election campaign.
60 minutes pushed for Clinton to win not too long ago.

What’s more disturbing is his choice of the three better Presidents-Lincoln, FDR and LBJ. I would put those 3 more at the bottom end of the spectrum (including Lincoln).

Nobody mentions James Polk, who only served one term, on purpose, and added a huge chunk of the Southwest to the country, among other things.

But of course, Obamacare is a much bigger deal than that.

"Lincoln, FDR and LBJ"

The only reason he included Lincoln is because he still thinks Lincoln freed the slaves.

Sort of had to, if you know what I mean.

Otherwise, Abe would be an "also-ran".

The other two advanced the socialist agenda to a remarkable degree, even though in Barry'smind, they still don't deserve to be ahead of him.

1. They can ignore FOIA requests
2. They can send you to GITMO
3. They can kill you, secretly or openly

What else? Change indeed, yup.

Oh, sure they’ll do it to extremists only, yep.

SO DON’T WORRY.

****Progressives are truly mentally ill and delusional.****

Then why is a progressive leading our nation? The truth is we are in the fight of our lives with people who have the audacity to claim that they have control over our land, our laws and our God.

They are not incompetent, they are control freaks to the core who will claim victimhood while victimizing others. All the while proclaiming lordship by fiat laws.

Oh yeah they can also smuggle machine-guns to drug-dealers. And grenades. Then they’ll LAUNDER BILLIONS on behalf of the drug-dealers they just armed, and that’s cuz they want to TRACK money-laundering, uh-huh.

Then they won’t arrest ANYONE.

KROFT: Tell me, what do you consider your major accomplishments? If this is your last speech. What have you accomplished?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, we're not done yet. I've got five more years of stuff to do. But not only saving this country from a great depression. Not only saving the auto industry. But putting in place a system in which we're gonna start lowering health care costs and you're never gonna go bankrupt because you get sick or somebody in your family gets sick. Making sure that we have reformed the financial system, so we never again have taxpayer-funded bailouts, and the system is more stable and secure. Making sure that we've got millions of kids out here who are able to go to college because we've expanded student loans and made college more affordable. Ending Don't Ask, Don't Tell. Decimating al Qaeda, including Bin Laden being taken off the field. Restoring America's respect around the world.

The issue here is not gonna be a list of accomplishments. As you said yourself, Steve, you know, I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president -- with the possible exceptions of Johnson, F.D.R., and Lincoln -- just in terms of what we've gotten done in modern history. But, you know, but when it comes to the economy, we've got a lot more work to do. And we're gonna keep on at it.

"60 Minutes conveniently left it out of its broadcast."

Can you imagine if Bush had said this in an MSM interview?

No one considers LBJ a great president, except a socialist like BO.
