Skip to comments.Legacy: Obama now an equal with Ronald Reagan, says pollster Zogby

In his weekly presidential report card, pollster John Zogby found that President Obama's legacy was greatly improved by two key Supreme Court decisions, endorsing same sex marriage and Obamacare, and passage of controversial trade agreements.
"There have been some bad weeks and some less than stellar ones. This one was the kind of week that most presidents can only dream about."
A GOP Congress passed the largest free trade pact with the largest market in the world.
"The Supreme Court voted 6-3 to uphold 'state' subsidies under Obamacare."
"A combination of major southern states and retailers vowed to stop manufacturing, selling, or making prominent the Confederate Flag."
"And the Supreme Court followed by declaring marriage to be a constitutional right. These are the kinds of events that will make headlines in history books and enhance the legacy of Mr. Obama. There may very well be more bad weeks, but this one was one for the record books."
Secrets asked Zogby to size up Obama's legacy so far, and he put him in the second tier of the greatest presidents ever.
"As someone who taught history for 24 years, these are the sorts of things that do not make Obama an FDR, Lincoln, or Washington, but can, with some perspective, certainly place him up there with Andrew Jackson, Woodrow Wilson, Ronald Reagan, and Harry S. Truman," said Zogby.

Equal what?! Obama isn’t famous, he’s infamous.
Well, Reagan did appoint Kennedy.
Zogbie just killed his career.
Legacy doesn’t happen in just over 48 hours.
Is Zogby still alive? I thought he died years ago.
One Arab praising another.
Since my self proclaimed betters are proclaiming this, it must be true.
Zogby’s career is about serving the progressive agenda. His polls are designed as propaganda tools. He has been owned lock stock and barrel by the Clintons since the early 90’s, that’s how he made his name.
I’d say they are polar opposites. That’s the only thing their legacies have in common. Reagan good, Obama bad.
After trashing America soundly multiple times this week, look for more arrogance as he attacks the Second Amendment next.
Balderdash. Then again, I have learned to never underestimate the complete stupidity of people today.
Take the poll 10 and 20 years from now. The name “Obama” will be the functional equivalent of “Satan” or “traitor”.
Not so for Reagan. He has already stood the test of time. Only in Leftist revisionist history is Reagan dissed.
Through his rigged polls he has always pushed the evil leftist agenda. In other words, he is a fraud.
Most presidns dream of splitting their country? Obama yes, most presidents no.
Most presidents dream of splitting their country? Obama yes, most presidents no.
I think you have it reversed. The way we are going, Obama will be seen as a great leader.
I would refer to it as a comparing legacies between a good President and an evil President.
Obama is to Reagan as the Anti-Christ is to Christ. And he’s still working toward the office of the Anti-Christ...
Jeffrey Dahlmer has a legacy. And Richard Speck, Carrol Chessman, Ted Kaczinski, Ted Bundy, and the one with the highest body count, Janet Reno.
