Who voted, his kids and Michele?
No, just dead people and the SEIU.
Remember when Miss Lillian rated Jimmy in the top four?
hEllo. i Am a PRESidinteal SColar an I jEs lovE de pRESidint. AN I lovE meSulf two.
Pointy-head intellectuals LOL!!
What can you expect from the maoist infested halls of academia.
It wouldn’t matter if the economy crashed, the moozies nuked York and LA, all coasts were awash in oil, while fuel prices go to $10 per gallon, and all academics were ordered to report to the school collective to work for starvation wages.
He’s the best president ever because of his RACE, or racial mix, NOT because of his performance.
With liberals, it’s all about feelings, NEVER about achievement, accomplishment, merit, or honor.
Flawed by bias!
Statist = Liberals and Progressives.......in other words, those who habitually engage in historical revisionism and the deflection. Remember that the academic community, you know, those made up of PhD. “scholars, are predominately liberals and progressives.....and that, my friend, is not from a “survey” but is pure established fact.
in obmanation.... lies are truth and truth is lies... he is 100% evil.
Consider the Source!!! Scholars?
Was that Insane College that conducted the poll?
And in similar news...
A survey of 238 “top chefs” released Thursday ranked Raccoon Ass as one of the nation’s most desired meats.
According to the Siena College Culinary Research Institute, Racoon Ass is currently in the fifteenth position an amazing three spots AHEAD of Fillet Mignon.
Look folks, Reagan is generally considered to be one of our best presidents. Obama is not. He is considered to be one of our worst, and even the Democrats know it.
This survey was a desperate attempt to shore up support for the unsupportable.
The poll should be of presidents who have completed at least one term.
The kool-aid hasn’t worn off for many yet especially those who look more like the President.
What I didn’t see, as one of the ranking categories, was “didn’t do stuff he wasn’t supposed to do.” Which I would consider the single most important category in ranking a president.
If that category had been included, Eisenhower, Coolidge, and (my personal favorite) WH Harrison would have ranked far higher.
The Nobel peace prize committee.
“hEllo. i Am a PRESidinteal SColar an I jEs lovE de pRESidint. AN I lovE meSulf two, Homee”
Obama needs to be impeached, tried for treason and sent to Gitmo to rot with his goat-humping muslim buddies. He’ll fit right in.
She probably also voted in this poll!
Which, of course, says far more about these "scholars" than it does about the relative value of Barack Obama or Ronald Reagan.
Interestingly, as to “handling the economy,” Obama rates 17, higher than Reagan (21), who presided over America’s longest economic recovery, as well as Coolidge (30) and Harding (39), whose handling of the economy made the Twenties roar.
Considering the criteria was marxism I would say his ranking is exactly right.
What is that bunch smoking!
LOL! I am sure those lib scholars hated Reagan and believed he was a horrible president, so ranking odungbeetle above Reagan doesn’t say much for the narcissist in chief.
Yet another hit on academia.
No other politician came onto the scene via an ideological speech. Sure, Kennedy, Clinton, and Obama all came on to the national scene during the Democrat convention prior to their nomination, but all of those had been in politics for some time prior that speech, and the speeches were not ideological, per se.
Certainly FDR had a long time in the office, a depression, and a looming war which we later joined, to provide a very consistent 12 years to act.
Reagan never wavered in his ideology from private citizen speaking on the rubber chicken circuit, to the "A Time for Choosing" speech, to his California governor campaign and administration, to his post governor years with his radio commentary, to his 1976 Presidential run, to his years in the wilderness, to his triumphant Presidential campaign, to his administration.
Reagan never wavered, he let the country come to him, instead of pandering to the electorate.
I do not believe there was ever a more consistent politician ever. And that consistency was in vision. Reagan's vision, espoused in that October 1964 speech, was realized almost 25 years to the day, in November 1989 with the collapse of totalitarian communism, and realized though the consistency of Reagan's vision and sheer force of Reagan's will.
I only see that as comparable to Lincoln's vision of a unified United States without the institution of slavery.
I think one has to argue Reagan has to be in the top 3 Presidents because only three Presidents have faced existential threats to the United States, and defeated them. Lincoln and the southern secession, FDR and WWII, and Reagan and totalitarian Communism.

No wonder WFB preferred the first 238 names in the Boston phone book alternative to these idiots!
Outrageous! A truly malicious ignorance of American history!
Should have seen the look on their faces when the Democrat party float came past our group in today’s Independence Day parade and we all started yelling “impeach obama”
Was this report even typed up with a straight finger?
If they can sell this load of BULL$HIT then the moon is probably made of green cheese.
These leftist America-hating ‘scholars’ may want to pretend that Barack Hussein Obama is a ‘better’ president than Ronald Reagan but no sentient human being (Leftist Obama Kool-Aid drinkers excluded) is going to believe it. They are preaching to the leftist choir and should be mocked, then ignored.
I don’t know how Clinton is number 13. Maybe it’s because of all the easter eggs he left behind for GW Bush, like Osama binLaden and the wonderful Recourse rule that let banks invest in Fannie/Freddi mortgage securites with the same capital requirements as Federal Treasuries — 0%.
Clinton was a loser, just popular enough to get reelected and marginal, at best, in everything else. If not for the Republican congress he would be something they would be trying to forget.
And what does this say about “higher” education???
