breitbart.tv ^ | 12-17-11

Posted on 12/17/2011 8:42:49 AM PST by Justaham

In his latest interview with CBS News's Steve Kroft, President Obama said "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." CBS edited the statement out of the televised version of the interview.

2012 Political ad:

Statistics from 2007 -- DJIA, unemployment figure, home ownership rate. Statistics from 2011 -- DJIA, unemployment figure, home ownership rate.
Quote from Obama -- "I am about the best president -- EVER!"

Narrator: "He doesn't get it. He still doesn't get it. We can't afford another 4 years of this."

Which Johnson is he talking about??

I don’t believe either one was particularly successful. One was impeached and the other put us into a war on poverty that after almost 50 years, we’re no where close to winning.

FDR was the Father of Our National Debt.

It all depends on your definition of success. In this case, taking a wrecking ball to the Constitution was the goal, so he is successful.

It shows his modesty and humility and humbleness in that he put three others above him even though he doesn’t really mean it.

What else would you expect from these two uncouth low lifes who would be photographed with these expressions upon seeing the queen of England arriving during their visit there?

What POTUS and FLOTUS have ever been photographed like this?

They have no finesse. NONE.

(And, by the way, what the h*ll happened to MO's necklace? Did she get into a brawl with Omuslim just before the meeting?)

You are wrong. The coaches poll and computer rankings had him and Jimmy Cahhta tied at the bottom. Johnson and Harrison were near heroes compared to those two.

Looking at this photo, you would think that it just has to be photoshopped.

But no.

It is not.

It's real.

They are just that ignorant and uncouth.

They are an embarassment to the United States.

A stain on American history..and the world is laughing at us.

They weren’t embarrassed, they were afraid of what it would sound like during the campaign.

Obviously the ObamAllah is exercising too often in the Clinton masturbation closet.

Was he correct? Look, his “accomplishments” blow herds of buffalo dongs, but he GOT WHAT HE WANTED.

He completely took over health care, he strangled the banking system, he now has a monopoly on college loans, gas and food prices have sky-rocketed, and more people are now dependent upon government for unemployment benefits and food stamps.

On the foreign front, he gave in to the Russians’ demands on arms negotiations, he has enabled Islamic radicals in Libya, Egypt, Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan, and he has committed U.S. dollars to foreign banks in Europe.

He sure as hell can say “Mission Accomplished” when it comes to destroying liberties and capitalism.

I’m glad Zero’s handlers at CBS are looking out for him, and not the rest of us.

There was a time when journalists thought there first job was to inform citizens.

Now it’s to spin for their preferred candidate.

NO ONE outranks Obama in delusion: the carefully-crafted
narrative put forth assessing his tenure as President is as bogus as the narrative of his own history, carefully-crafted by someone else, in DREAMS FROM MY FATHER.

Andrew Johnson you say?

why that calls for a duel suh.

you must be from up north.

I will spare you in the spirit of Christmas.

despised at first we came to appreciate him later

I think worst presidents is highly subjective even for conservatives but I think Carter will always be on it. And now Obama. Folks who missed WWII will also nominate FDR.

Harrison? Hell, he only served a month and tried to reverse the Jackson-Van Buren stuff...something I woulda thought might have endeared him here. I admit he was always off my radar.

I think LBJ was a poor president too...all that Civil Rights and Entitlements overkill and his poor handling of Vietnam.

Wilson and Grant had issues too even though I have always admired Grant's terms to my kinfolks...terms squashed by those who sought to topple Johnson.

like I said subjective but Carter and now Obam will be on anyone’s list here I would think.
