President Obama is considered to be the worst president since World War II, narrowly beating out George W. Bush, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll released today.

Obama was the choice of 33 percent of those polled for the selection of worst president, the largest percentage of any of the 12 presidents since 1945 when the war ended.

The poll asked respondents, “Thinking about the United States Presidents we have had since World War II: Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, John Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George Bush Senior, Bill Clinton,” George W. Bush and Barack Obama, which one would you consider the best president?

To be fair:

The young people don’t remember the Carter Administration.

I’d have to say Obama is worse than Carter.

Carter at least was misguided and a Christian. He’s also gone on to do real charity work post-presidency.

I don’t see Obama swinging a hammer building a house for some poor person 30 years from now.

***********************
Carter also has spent several decades traveling the world and trashing America and its Presidents when speaking with foreigners. ...I’ll give him a little credit for the H for H charitible thing, but he’s a massive loser on everything else.

He’s the worst leader in the history of the world, probably since Nero.

The Obamanation just racked up another scandal. He caused a mass invasion of United States by illegal aliens! And of course he’s not taking the blame. This demon is a wrecking machine!

At least Nero had a skill. He was a musician.

It would be funny, though, in his mom jeans and his girly swing at the nail.

Yup, and Rome survived Nero. It’s very doubtful America is going to survive this SOB.

He didn’t “narrowly” beat Bush for worst President. He won 33 to 28 over Bush; that’s about 15% more people who said he was worse.

"The young people don’t remember the Carter Administration."

I am 68 years old and I remember Rabbit Boy.
I remember gas lines, Jimmah saying we were about to run out of crude oil.
ZERO beats out Jimmah by a Hare. . . .

Just what I was saying. Who is worse than this guy? Nobody, and I know my Presidents. You cannot do worse than having an avowed enemy of the United states in the Oval office.

No, but he might do some charity interior decorating in the future.

I remember Jimmah too. Remember him demanding we turn our thermostats down to 65? And declaring that the world will run out of oil? Here we are over 35 years later...Yep, we still got oil. The arabs were on the floor laughing at that fool which is why the radicals overtook Iran which we are still dealing with today, and who eventually will get a nuke.

I can’t stand Carter. He runs his mouth about how bad President Bush was after his horrid Presidency. To me, Carter will always be the worst. He affected my life much more than Obama ever could imagine. For America, Carter was a disaster that we are still trying to clean up. Obama is second worst in history.

I’ve been around for many former U.S. presidents and can, without any doubt say that there has never been a worse president in my 77 years here on earth. I cannot say what the previous presidents were like before 1940’s but do know that odumbo has been and continues to be the WORST. His actions, his distain for America and our Constitutional laws, his disrespect for the residence he occupies should easily tell you what you need to know about that ASSHOLE!
The day he was first elected I stated, “He’s NOT MY PRESIDENT!” and I continue to hold the same resolve today.

Obama is the worst President for many reasons:
including both domestic and foreign policy.
He has intentionally acted to divide the population against itself and has exacerbated differences between people.
When so many actions appear incompetent it is reasonable to believe that they may have been intentional.
He has mismanaged the economy: 2008 US GDP $14T, 2013 $16T; China GDP 2008 $4T, 2013 China GDP $10T.
Intestinal use of governmental agencies to impede the economy: EPA, NLRB, EEOC, SEC, FDIC, etc.
Foreign policy: reduce US influence by insulting historic Allies (Canada, Great Britain, Israel, Japan, Saudi Arabia, etc), drop our guard with historic enemies(Iran, Russia, North Korea, Pakistan, etc) and strain relations with South American countries.
None of this is an accident.

That’s true. Obama is the singularly most personally UNaccomplished person to ever seek the office. At least he is at the top of the list in ineptitude.

I have too and trying to compare Jimmah & ZERO is like comparing dog squeeze.
Both are terrible. It is easier to say ZERO is the worst because we are going through his mess right now. Jimmah did a lot of bad for US and we are still paying for a lot of it. The only good Jimmah did was give us Ronnie. . . . . .
Hopefully in a few years we can say the same about ZERO. . . . .
