Obama worst president since WWII, new poll shows
Washington Times ^ | July 2, 2014 | By Stephen Dinan

Posted on 07/02/2014 4:03:55 AM PDT by kingattax

Poll after poll shows President Obama’s approval rating dipping recently, and one new Quinnipiac University Poll finds that voters say Mitt Romney would have been a better choice in 2012.

With Mr. Obama deploying military troops to Iraq, failing to find compromise with Congress and seeing major defeats in the Supreme Court, voters continue to sour on him.

Quinnipiac found 45 percent of voters say the country would have been better off if Mr. Romney, the 2012 GOP nominee, had been election, while just 38 percent say Mr. Obama remains a better choice. Even Democrats aren’t so sure — just 74 percent of them told the pollsters Mr. Obama was clearly the better pick in the last election.

Voters also rate him the worst president since World War II, topping even his predecessor, President George W. Bush, who had left office with terrible ratings.

Since WW2? The poll should have asked which president is the worst in history and which president hated the USA the most!

Never give his supporters a pass. Once we start breaking his supporters the weaklings they are they will run away as fast as possible.

-——deploying military troops to Iraq——

The act is not even a half measure. History may show it was a deployment to an airport that is in reality the Alamo

No. I would have to adamantly disagree. Not the worst president since WWII but the worst this nation has ever had.

The reasoning is simple. Any of the very worst presidents, while may not have had the qualifications or the vision to make America a better place, their efforts were driven by a genuine desire as patriots to improve the conditions of the country however misguided or convoluted their efforts and ensuing results.

At no time did they work to undermine the country, economic conditions or international status and never were they’re qualifications for he position ever in doubt.

Obama, on the other hand is an avowed enemy of our country, a vindictive, malevolent force of Satanic proportions out to harm the USA in any, every way possible, and has proven it to the point where they is no doubt as to his objectives regarding his desire to do as much harm as possible.

In addition, while there is no smoking gun, his status as natural born citizen of America is undoubtedly that of being fraudulent, which places him as worst president as not even being worthy of consideration.

And who might that be sir?

:-)

I know, I know, it's the Obungler. I was in the Air Force when Carter was president. He was bad enough, but I do not believe Carter was trying to destroy America. I DO believe the Obungler is trying to do exactly that, and the RINOs are letting him do it, because that is their goal too.

University Students don’t know history before WW II?

I can’t see how corporations are hiring students graduating presently. Most know noting after leaving a college/university - they don’t know how to analyze, think, or even write effectively. When asked to work, their responses are no less than vile and contempt. If the military is suffering from adequate recruits, I can only image what HR departments are dealing with...a culture of, “Give me, give me, give me!” “I earned it because I was born!” mentality.

Obama. Worst. President. EVER.

In fact, so bad, that a category other than “President” should be invented for him alone. I have been using the term “Current Occupant now squatting in the White Hut”, as his very presence there vastly diminishes the stature and dignity of the domicile once known as “the White House”, but that clearly does not sufficiently convey my lack of conviction in his ability to serve in the office.

Frankly, as an amateur historian, I think Obama is WORSE than Buchanan.

You make a good point, though I think he knew he wasn’t popular.

I'd have to give the nod to Obama so far, since as a result of Buchanan's presidency we needed to shoot thousands of Democrats. Still, there are at least 2 1/2 years left to the Obama regime, so it still has plenty of time to get worse.

“University Students don’t know history before WWII?”

Not much. That’s the reason for standardized testing. Who writes the test dictates what is to be taught. In order for the students to pass a test, teachers are forced to teach what the testers emphasize. Today’s test writers want American kids to not know that they are Americans, so they don’t test on early American history.

It’s time to stop comparing Obama to ANY former president. He should be more aptly compared to the likes of Benedict Arnold, or even hitler. He is a traitor and hater of all things America (except the milk and honey) and failure to see his record, and true intentions, is reserved for the land of the stupid.

Still waiting for the poll on how many people recognize that Obama is a traitor to the United States of America, and that the House of Representatives is complicit for not impeaching Obama on multiple charges of treason.

>>no other president actively tried to destroy the country and hated it but this one.<<

For many years I kept asking “is obozo evil or inept?”

Of course the answer is both. He has evil intent and looks to his puppeteers to tell him what to do (e.g. obozocare). But, left to his own devices, he just ignores everything (because he doesn’t understand anything) and goes golfing. Benghazi, shmengazi!

Are you kidding? This guy is a genius. He's a classic underachiever. He stunk as a student. His grades were so bad he's had his records sealed. He was a fag and dope head. He had accomplished precisely nothing prior to running for president. He was destined for the same money grubbing, mediocre extortion lifestyle as trailer trash like jesse jackson or al pimpton. All of them capitalizing on the fact, and only on the fact, that they're negroes. Big whoop. (Martin Luther King. Was this your big dream?)

But this guy hit the mother lode. He's set for life. A lifetime of paychecks, free medical care, office supplies, bodyguards. All that in spite of the fact he's stupid, lazy, stoned, (bisexual affairs, no doubt), etc.

You're looking at it from the wrong perspective. You're looking at it from the perspective of a potentially great office, and how incompetent he is in that. You need to look at it from his perspective. A stupid, lazy, possibly mildly retarded bisexual drug addict (yes, I think he's a stoner) who has found somebody to fund his lifestyle as long as he lives. Ask any drug addict if they would like to be in his shoes.

You're looking at it from the wrong perspective.

Yep, WWII, and the terms back to 1932. FDR was absolutely the worst before we were inflicted with this National Socialist SOB. He took a recovering economy at the beginning of the depression and put it in the trash with rules, regulations, price controls, trashed the banks, imposed criminal punishment down to individual shop owners to worked past a specified time of the day. He was a disaster. He gave Germany to the Soviets at the end of the war, in full, and the only thing that saved the west was that the POS died. Now we have a dictator who is worse than FDR and who hates us all. The democrat party of traitors and slavery is part and parcel to the kenyan son of a pig f’n dog. The time has come.
