Skip to comments.Barack H. Obama is the Greatest President of Modern Times (No, it is no satire)
Posted on 01/03/2015 12:30:35 PM PST by South40
It is difficult to compare presidents outside of a narrow context of time. It is like trying to compare baseball players, like Ruth and Aaron, or football players, like Johnny Unitas and Peyton Manning. For athletes, the games they play were different then; and for presidents, not only the country, but the world is different.
There is no way of knowing how a president today would have fared when faced with the prospect of the First or Second World War, or how they would have handled the advent of the Cold War with the Soviet Union. These are answers we can never have answered, and speculation is pointless. Despite any internal similarities, the external contexts cannot be ignored: Korea is not Vietnam and Vietnam is not Iraq.
What we can do is judge them by their accomplishments, by how they faced the challenges of their time. Coming off arguably one of the most disastrous presidencies in our history, that of George W. Bush, who cut taxes yet involved us in two un-paid for wars, and crashed our economy and that of the rest of the world as a result, we found ourselves with our nation first black president.

Best pResident for America haters all over the world
What would Bill Ayers do?
If you’re an America-hating communist.
In the world of Hrafnkell Haraldssonmore, all animals can fly, even pigs.
They look kind of purty against a dawn sky, with their little pink wings flapping hard...
But for these people, there would be a South Viet Nam today...
Pronounce that name.
It’s truly sad that an “American” believes a Communist to be a good “President”. The author is clueless and no amount of facts would alter his delusion.
What he is is the world’s greatest AR-AK salesman of all time. Keep up the good work Barry. :-)
The guy has a point, I think that he ranks right up there with Caligula, Nero, George III, Ivan the Terrible, Stalin, and, of course, that all time favorite, Hitler. Obama joins a very special group.
Hrafnkell Haraldsson, a social liberal with leanings toward centrist politics has degrees in history and philosophy. His interests include, besides history and philosophy, human rights issues, freedom of choice, religion, and the precarious dichotomy of freedom of speech and intolerance. He brings a slightly different perspective to his writing, being that he is neither a follower of an Abrahamic faith nor an atheist but a polytheist, a modern-day Heathen who follows the customs and traditions of his Norse ancestors. He maintains his own blog, A Heathens Day, which deals with Heathen and Pagan matters, and Mos Maiorum Foundation www.mosmaiorum.org, dedicated to ethnic religion. He has also contributed to NewsJunkiePost, GodsOwnParty and Pagan+Politics.
His stuff turns up here a few times a year. A crank, if not somebody's clever parody of one.
Try to imagine Barack Obama “handling” the Second World War. Then look on the Internet for German lessons.
I don't want to appear argumentative, but I disagree with that view, in fact, rather strongly.
I hope my outburst and harsh language doesn't upset anyone.
Ain’t that the truth!
The child who wrote this piece is an idol worshiper.
But you only disagree because he is black. But were he to be white, you would strongly agree. So says the left.
Hrafnkell has got to be on mind altering drugs.
