Where Will Obama Rank in Presidential History? (You need to see this!)
MRC TV ^ | Jan 22nd, 2013

Posted on 01/23/2013 10:14:29 AM PST by TaraP

Just how much do Obama supporters love the president? MRCTV was at the National Mall for the Inaugural celebration and asked attendees what position Obama would hold if they had to rank all U.S. president's from best to worst.

Keep in mind, that Obama has only just started his second term.

I'm sure if it goes as smoothly as his first, his legacy will shine even more brightly in the eyes of these supporters.

He ranks right up there with Stalin, Hitler and Mao!

Or wait, were we limited to just US Presidents?

If you’re asking the idiots who elected him, they’ll say he’s worthy having an image placed ABOVE Mt. Rushmore.

For most of my life, the media and academia have held up FDR as one of the greatest Presidents of all time, and I think most people ignorantly accept that valuation.

If people can’t see through the media lies now, with Obama right in front of them, how will they see through him after he’s gone?

Yes, I agree that he never would have been re-elected without massive voter fraud. But there are still millions of idiots out there who think he’s the bee’s knees. I doubt that will change.

Rank? The blue-lipped son of a kenyan monkey? Oh, he’s HIGHLY rank. I can’t think of a ranker piece of excrement than bronco bama. He could rank out the Roman Coliseum on a windy day, he’s that rank.

I used to say that either Obama is an idiot with visions of gradeur who will go down hard, or he is the beast of Revelation. But I firmly thought the former was the most likely answer.

The way so many can idolize such a man, I’m beginning to think his tenure will end when a frog comes out of his mouth. Seriously.

I dunno.

First Citizen Obama’s policies will instigate the
Second Civil War as Obama tries to emulate tactics of the
Third Reich, only persecuting conservatism instead of Jews. He will be protected by the
Fourth Estate as his own personal propaganda arm. His appointees will act as a
Fifth Column to rewrite the American Constitution.

Obama rated as the 4th best president ever.

A study group recently released its findings as to the best president of the United States of America.

Obama has been rated as the 4th best president ever: Reagan and 9 others tied for first, 15 presidents tied for second, and 18 other presidents tied for third.

Obama came in fourth....

Interesting. Did only middle-aged black women show up for the Second Immaculation of Obummer.

Also: Maybe 30 percent of those interviewed seemed like nasty or paranoid women. The others seemed quite normal ladies who would be friendly to you in the grocery store. This is actually hopeful. Because normal people are more accessible to reality as it grinds away at them over time. They'll always be sentimental and feelings-based, but they can eventually make room for new sentiments.

But I saw a total of one man. . .

or Captain Joseph Hazelwood, Exxon Valdez.

Ya know, I watch something like that and don’t turn it off BECAUSE I KEEP WAITING FOR THE PUNCH LINE!!! Those pitiful ignorant folks actually believe Ovomit cares about them when in reality he disparately supports murder of THEIR offspring in the womb...and they trade their unborn children and God given freedom for government money and dependency. Like Judas, they have sold their souls for a bag of silver.

I honestly am having a hard time in deciding who I would rank as the worst president in US history. My list includes Woodrow Wilson, FDR, Nixon and Obama.

Wilson created the Income tax, giving us the foundation to Class Warfare tax policy.

FDR instituted so many socialist schemes it would be difficult to list them all, but I will call him out for SSIP. With that he created an inescapable income redistribution scheme.

Nixon gave us the EPA, therefore laying a foundation to obliterate private property.

Obama took posession of our physical being with Obamacare, therefore reinstuting slavery.

Yet, the drones of today worship all of these tyrants except Nixon and he is despised only because he had an R after his name....

Obama will be the most, unqualified, infamous and derided president in the history of the United States.His example and legacy will reveal the horror The People and The World have had with Obama, a president whose only qualification was media created popularity of image and the redefinition of history.Obama has no other qualification for the office of president of the United States, so much so that he has hidden his true history, his academic records, his Harvard writings, his attorney client list at the Illinoise Bar from anyone but himself.

In short, the legacy of the Obama presidencey is one of fiscal , economic, diplomatic and constitutional disaster.

Arnold's treason pre-dated the eventual victory, which led to our Constitutional Republics & the Federal Union. Obama's "achievements" are better compared to those of the Norwegian Socialist Prime Minister, Vidkun Quisling, who one night brought in Hitler's German Socialists, while loyal Norwegians slept.

I do not know if Vidkun ranted about a "world without borders," or just played on envy & resentment; but he was surely Obama's "soul brother," in seeking to undermine the people, whose interest he was supposed to be serving.

I can guess what the announcement of his death will be like.

Dear comrades and friends:

The Central Committee of the Democratic party of the Amerikkkan Union, the U.S. Council of Ministers and the Presidium of the U.S. Supreme Soviet announce with profound sorrow to the party and all workers of the Amerikkkan Union that on the 5th of March, at 2150 hours (9:50 P.M., Moscow time, or 1:50 P.M., Eastern Standard Time), after a grave illness, the Chairman of the U.S. Council of Ministers and the Secretary of the Central Committee of the Democratic party of the Amerikkkan Union, Barack Hussein Obama (PBUH), died.

The heart of the comrade and inspired continuer of Lenin's will, the wise leader and teacher of the Democratic Party and the Amerikkkan people--Barack Hussein Obama (PBUH), --has stopped beating.

Obama's name is boundlessly dear to our party, to the Amerikkkan people, to the workers of the world.

Together with Lenin, Comrade Obama created the mighty party of Democrats, reared and forged that party.

Together with Lenin, Comrade Obama was the inspirer and leader of the great November Socialist Revolution, founder of the Amerikkkan Socialist state.

Continuing Lenin's immortal cause, Comrade Obama led the Amerikkkan people to a world-historic victory of Socialism in our land.

Comrade Obama led our country to victory over fascism in the House of Representatives which wrought a radical change in the entire national scene.

Comrade Obama's death--the man who devoted all his life to the unselfish service of the Democrat cause--is a tremendous loss to the party, to the workers of the Amerikkkan Union and to the whole world.

Comrade Obama armed the party and all the people with a great and lucid program of building communism in the U.S.A.

... and so on...
