Given antics of his predecessors, Obama is hardly worst president

Given antics of his predecessors, Obama is hardly worst president

I have read and seen on televi- sion the results of a recent poll that found the majority believed President Obama to be the “worst president” since World War II.

Let’s look at some postwar presidential facts.

Republican President Richard Nixon and his Vice President Spiro Agnew resigned from their offices just before impeachment and imprisonment.

Republican President Ronald Reagan had Iran-Contra, savings and loan crimes, Pentagon and HUD scandals that cost taxpayers millions of dollars.

Democratic President William Clinton’s escapades in the Oval Office cost taxpayers millions of dollars and resulted in no impeachment proceedings.

Republican President George Bush had Enron, Tyco, World Com, Abramoff, Madoff, and Scooter Libby and everyone went to jail. Not to mention the phony facts that led to the Iraq War, which cost trillions in dollars and thousands of American and Iraqi lives. These are facts.

All Obama and his administration want to do is feed the poor, heal the sick, extend unemployment benefits, guarantee equal pay for women, and fight fewer wars, which save us money and lives. And the people feel these are scandals and he is the worst president since 1945? The scandal is that Congress is thwarting his every effort.

The questions to be asked here are: How intelligent were these people (must have been Republicans) or what planet were they from?

David P. Gaibis Sr., New Castle

Hey David, weren't you on "Last Comic Standing" doing these Obama shticks. I don't think these posters know who you are but you are hilarious. Your description of Obama is great. Really shows he's in the wrong line of business. He was made out to be a community organizer, missionary, or peace corps worker, not the president of the United States. Obama would also be a hit on the Liar's Club" show.

How about Van Jones (Communist), Anita Dunn (Marxist), to name a couple. You obviously don't read the right newspapers, or watch TV, unless its MSNBC which is the Obamunist Network. Get a grip, fool.

All of these haters voted for bush who inherited the strongest economy this country has ever seen along with the formula for paying off the national debt and he blew it. His economic policies wrecked the economy and drove the DOW down to 6,500. Under Obama's economic policies the DOW closed today over 17,100.

These haters also voted for bush's father who was part of the the saint reagan administration. When Obama took office the country was losing 700,000 jobs a month. Because of Obama's policies more net jobs have been created during his administration than bush the father and bush the idiot son combined.

Speaking of saint reagan, the previous Democratic President Clinton's administrations policies created more jobs than reagan, bush the father and bush the idiot son combined.

The teabagger/republicans brag about polls of 1500 or less people and ignore elections where more than 120,000,000 voted and Obama won by landslides. He would win another election tomorrow because the teabaggers have no one to run against him.

If RWL want to stop the use of E.O. sit down and do their job's The RWL don't care about the 40M w/out H.I. only the 5M who probably have better ins now. Imagine RWL reaction if the President could have gotten the pow released but didn't take it. The RWL will not understand the pipeline will not help the US and only Canada and China will profit from it. If they really want to get the pipeline then support the Dema amendment that the oil can only be used in US.

Until some of these people can learn to decipher the truth from the right wing lies and false accusations, then they will continue to write their "clever" responses to someone that speaks the truth. Good letter Dave but it seems most responses come from the right wing nut bigots. I usually do not respond but thought you should know there are many of us that feel like you.

The country is much better now than it was. When Obama took office the economy was in its worst shape since the Great Depression.
The greatest intelligence failure in the history of the WORLD occurred under Bush on 9/11 costing thousands of American lives..
4 people died in Benghazi, over 4,000 AMERICANS died in Iraq in Bush's fictitious war of Weapons of Mass Destruction.
ObamaCare is a success as it has insured over 8 million more people all while decreasing health care impact on GDP.
Bush embraced illegal immigration, he said, "many of these people are here doing jobs that most Americans don't want to do."
The stock market is at an all-time high!!
Unemployment is DOWN (even though congress refuses to pass a jobs bill.)
Bin Laden is DEAD
GM is ALIVE
The Republicans wanted illegals here to break unions and drive wages down and that is what killed the middle class.
The poll that said Obama is the worst President since WWII is the same one that said Mitt was going to win the election.

Whether or not Obama is the worst president since WWII will take a some time to evaluate after he has completed his term. But, he truly has a way to go to be worse than Jimmy Carter, who was truly feckless and a clown. Made the US an embarrassment on the world stage. Say what you want about Reagan, he was presidential and a leader who backed up his words with actions. And, that is the problem with Barack Hussein Obama. He doesn't truly grasp the actual meaning of the Office of President of the United States. A diplomatic outpost in Benghazi is attacked a four Americans killed, he campaigns the next day in Denver. Draw a red line in Syria, and when it is crossed, do absolutely nothing. Our only democratic ally in the Middle East, Israel, continues to get shelled on by the terrorist group Hamas, diss Prime Minister Netanyahu. A civilian airliner gets blown out of the sky by Russians using Russian missiles and technology, go to a $32000 a plate fundraiser. Tens of thousands of immigrant children cross the border in Texas but he goes to Texas for campaigning alone!

Now, time will tell if his terms will transform the country, especially with respect to ACA. I doubt it will be for the better.

When you lie to congress and the American people for your own reasons for going to war, cause the deaths of hundreds of thousands people and torture people, that pretty much makes you a war criminal. I'd say bush and the rest of his lying administration qualify.

I didn't think you were part of the "blame America first" crowd. Faulty foreign intelligence does not rise to the level of lying. Britain had the same information we did and went to war. Most Democrat leaders also voted for the war effort. And, stop with the torture angle. We don't torture prisoners. It wasn't true then and its not true now. We used enhanced interrogation techniques to gain valuable information about the enemy.

BTW, can't tell for sure if Obumble is the worst.
I've always believed that the worst, the VERY worst, was Woodrow Wilson. Followed closely by Franklin D. Roosevelt. After that, it's tougher. Harding was pretty bad. LBJ was ghastly. Jimmy Carter was inept. Clinton may have been the worst person to BE president, which is not quite the same thing.
I do believe Obumble will end up as one of the worst three.

walter....there was no enemy. bush, channey, rumsfeld, rice, powell and the rest claimed they had proof and photos of stock piles of chemical weapons, they claimed they had proof of Iraq having a nuke weapons program and ties to al Qaeda and 9/11 and were an imminent threat to the United States. You can't claim to have proof of all those things while having none of it and not be called a liar. The only reason congress voted for going to war is because they believed the lies they were told.

The result was hundreds of thousands of innocent men, woman and children killed, trillions of US tax dollars wasted and a country left in ruins.

Chessie,
You are on target about BHO. He spoke for five minutes in the Rose Garden about Benghazi and didn't use the word "terror" until the last 30 seconds.He mentioned the attack there four times and never once modified the "attack" with the adjective "terror" but used a generic expression about any act of terror. His exact words:

"No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. Today we mourn four more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done."

How about that last punchline about "justice"? Can't get re-elected as the President that prevented terrorism when you have another terrorist attack on Sept 11 on all days. Totally disingenuous, like his entire presidency. But, before you can alter the course of America, you must first destroy America.

cambridge,
Those are old numbers. When BHO took office, the national debt was 10.627T. As of today, the national debt stands at 17.599T, which is an increase of 6.972T or 65.6%. The percentage is lower since he started at a higher debt. But, the real problem is that the current debt is about 74% of GDP. Now, to keep that 74% of GDP constant over the next 25 years, taxes will need to go up 6.5% each year, unless spending is cut. These are numbers put out by the CBO. Since job creation has been dismal the last 6 years, it is not encouraging. Now, if you don't like it, you can pass the blunt to the homie on your left.

36cambridge(3013 comments)posted 2 months ago

Those numbers tell me that your boy ronnie put this country on a path of destruction. When Clinton came along he was handed ronnie's and bush the fathers debt and budget deficit and he turned it into a budget surplus. Clinton handed that budget surplus and the path for paying off the debt to bush the idiot son and we all know what he did with that.

You claim job creation has been dismal the last six years. When Obama took office we were losing 750,000 jobs a month. If we are now creating 150,000 jobs a month which is a conservative number that is a 900,000 job swing to the good. There have been more jobs created during the Obama administration than bush the father and bush the idiot son combined. Your problem is you're letting the facts confuse you. The numbers are right in front of you but you just ignore them and keep praying to saint ronnie.

The debt is not nearly increasing at the rate it was when you deduct the interest that is accumulating from previous administrations. ObamaCare is projected to reduce the debt by approximately $800 Billion in its first ten years. Taking troops out of Afghanistan and getting out of Iraq have helped by the tune of a TRILLION DOLLARS a year.

Mike....save your breath, skeevoeivo is too lame to understand basic math.

It would be like if you had a credit card and you put 190 percent more spending on the credit card than you earned. When the bill comes you don't pay it and that 190 percent starts collecting interest. Next month when the bill comes you don't pay it again and continue this course for the next eight years. Now the interest is collecting interest.

You don't pay it for four years and then add another 52 percent to the debt all the while interest on interest is adding up by the minute.

After four years you try another approach for the next eight years. By the end of that eight years you are actually paying down your debt but by now the debt and the interest is so high your debt still increases another 37 percent but at least your on the right track.

Now you change strategies and again spend more than you make and along with the interest you raised that credit card debt another 86 percent.

Now you cut your deficit spending in half but after thirty years your dealing with a runaway train. To blame your recent history and ignore the last thirty years that got you where you're at is stupid to say the least.

Anyone with even limited intelligence and a primary grasp on math would understand this and there in lies skeevoeivo's problem.

Ah, a fun, genteel discussion, for a change.

Let's see, WHTaft... Teddy Bozovelt... Wilson... Hubert Hoover... FDR... Truman... Eisenhower... JFK...(shortened for space limits)

LBJ: Medicare, Medicaid, the evil society undermined families, undermined coinage with coppernickel Johnson Slugs, and set back race relations.

Nixon: appeased Red China, undermined coinage and currency, idiotic price controls.

Ford was no paragon, though I don't recall the specifics just now.

Carter: totally fumbled the economy and foreign relations, continued inflation, and set the first trigger for the destruction of the S&Ls.

Reagan: signed the second triggler for the destruction of the S&Ls, failed to eliminate Dept. of Educationism and Dept. of Energy; wimped out on taming Medicare, Medicaid and the Socialist Insecurity Abomination; 1986 amnesty for illegal aliens, rule 1706, and accompanying measures to reduce US citizens' privacy and liberty.

GHWBush: read my lips extortion increase, "assault" rifle import ban, Ruby Ridge.

Clintoon: Mt. Carmel/Waco massacre, ClintonDoesn'tCare, sexual assaults, vastly increased guest-worker visas 10 months after stock market crash and during tech wash-out and Y2K bust as job markets were worsening, several amnesties for illegal aliens.

Shrub: fumbled detecton of terrorists, unpatriotic act, pushed for even more guest-work visas while job markets were still in the dumps (but only got a couple smaller, more under the table increases).

cousin OhhBummer!: Fast and Furious, ObummerDoesn'tCare with its assaults on everyone's privacy, Benghazi, abuses by IRS and obstruction of justice, NSA egregious snooping on US citizens (they're supposed to spy on foreign governments and operatives), never accessible to the public when he should be and always appearing for photo ops and golfing and fund-raisers when more important issues need immediate attention, the Gates fiasco and other race obsessions including refusal to prosecute New Black Panthers, other attempts at election fraud and obstruction, trade of deserter for 5 terrorist chieftains (might be 1 excuse for that), Keystone XL, war against coal, CO2 hysteria, opposition to free and honest markets within the USA, aid to Hamas and Syrian terrorists, opposition to cutting unconstitutional spending and balancing federal government, shutting down parks in an old old gambit which back-fired amongst everyone but the leftist media, opposition to immigration reform and support of immigration law perversion, belligerent refusal to faithfully carry out the current constitutional immigration laws, continuing efforts to worsen US job markets through taxes and regulations, crippling of US military, appeasement of Putin and Red China and North Korea and Iran, crony socialism run rampant...

Yes, we've had a lot of low-quality presidents (even GWashington made a mistake with the whiskey tax, a mistake which he later repented), but cousin Obummer is the worst.

He Increased the defense budget every year for an unprecedented 6 straight years and it lead to a defense bubble.
Oh yeah, Ronny increased the deficit from 994 Billion in '81 when he took office to 2.9 TRILLION WHEN HE LEFT IN '89. Yep, he TRIPLED the deficit while at the same time magically increasing taxes throughout his presidency.

You obviously do not know what you are talking about. In 1994, the Clinton Administration gave diplomatic assurances to the Ukraine that we would insure their borders would be secure in exchange for them giving up their nuclear weapons and drastically reducing the size of their army. Boris Yeltsin signed the agreement on behalf of the Russian Federation. Don't forget, in 2005, soon after Barry became a US Senator he and Dick Lugar traveled to Eastern Ukraine and then went to Kiev where they met with the Russians to further expand the nuclear dis-arming to include even more conventional weapons. So, the US took the bite out of the defenses of the Ukraine in exchange for guaranteeing the security of their border. Typical of the community organizer, he has once again not lived up to his promise!

You think it's such a good idea for the US to get involved in these people killing each other because it's a noble cause to come to the aid of who you think is right in other peoples madness.

cambridge,
I didn't say I wanted to get into another war but are we not supposed to live up to our promises? There are other methods than war but it takes leadership and planning. Remember, as a member of NATO, any attack on a member country is viewed as an attack on the USA. Unfortunately, Barry is a sorry excuse for a leader and the only planning he does is whether to use a fairway wood or lay up with an iron.

chessiedad....you're a liar posting lies from teabagger/republican emails. The proof of your lies are in the links below. These teabagger/republican emails have been going around since his landslide victories in his presidential elections and have been debunked over and over again.

The elections are over and you lost big time both times. Get over it.

chessiedad....you're a liar and a loser and those links prove it. Those sites are not connected to any political party, they provide proof and backup for what they say. Unlike you who just recycles the emails you and your teabagger buddies keep passing around. Everything you post was proved a lie six years ago but the pathetic fool that you are you keep trying to pass it off as fact. I have no doubt that you have every teabagger email you ever got or sent and all you do is post the same lies over and over and when you do I'll post proof you lied.

You have no credibility because you are a pathetic little cry baby liar that can't accept the fact that Barack Hussein Obama is The President of the United States of America. It's only fitting that you, your teabagger buddies and skeevoeivo aren't proud to be Americans because America sure isn't proud of you. Fools like you two are the reason Obama got elected because real Americans would never want to vote the same way you did and that's why he won twice by landslides.

You lost big time both times, get over it.

CHessie,
Amen to the pen and phone comments with respect to Barack Hussein Obama's disregard for laws. But, did you see what the Russians thinks about BHO's birthday?

bush made a binding agreement with the Iraq government to pull American troops out. The Iraq government requested that Obama pull our troops out by the date of the agreement and he did.

These people are following their thousands of years of tradition of killing each other over religion. Let them, it's none of our business. The only reason we are getting involved in the Kurdish region is because of chevron's oil interest there. We fight wars where the oil companies tell us.

chessiedad....it's funny that it upsets you that I post something about bush from six or seven years ago but you have no problem posting lies from teabagger emails that were proved lies six years ago by FactCheck, politifact and snopes. Then you even have the nerve too claim that your teabagger email is a more credible source. I will post anything any time I want and you can keep crying like a little baby.

As far as two wrongs, I don't have a problem with either one of them playing golf or the millions of others that have played golf since the reporter was killed. The guy knew the risks of his job. I feel bad for him, his family and friends but life goes on. To change our lives because of what Isis or anyone else does means they won. I'll live my life the way I always have, you go hide under your bed.

You want to take the fight to these killers, be my guest tuff guy. Buy yourself a plain ticket and fly to Iraq and sign up with whichever religion you want to see kill the other. I know the Iraqi solders weren't interested, they dropped their guns and uniforms by the thousands. I'm sick of spending American lives and trillions of dollars on those fools. They'd be happy to see you, you'd fit right in.

FactCheck, politifact and snopes aren't connected to any political party. They call BS where they see it and your six year old teabagger email qualifies. Everything you claimed was in Obama's books were lies taken from your email. You're a fool.

lajoci....I totally agree with what you're saying.

I'm against his health care plan because it didn't go far enough eliminating the insurance companies. What he should have pushed for was Medicare for all.

He wasted years kissing up to the republicans who were going to hate him no mater what. He mentioned reagan's name like he was some god more than the republicans did and never talked about the accomplishments of Clinton.

Instead of standing up to the republicans he practicly begged them to like him. Hilary will be a different story, she's got a pair.

All that being said he is still a better president by far than anything the teabagger/republicans could come up with. If we had another election today Obama would win by another landslide because the other side has no one.

skeevoeivo....the reason no one with a half of a brain takes the fixed noise network seriously is because they are biased. A perfect example is the way they talk about Benghazi to death even thorough everyone in the government or military that has investigated it says there is nothing there.

I don't remember the fixed noise network, you, chessiedad or any teabagger/republicans saying a word when there were 13 attacks on various embassies and consulates around the world and 60 people were killed during the bush administration. Why is that?

The fixed noise network is about as fair and balanced as you are.

I saw the CIA operatives on the fixed noise network. They claim they were told to stand down by some guy named bob but they don't know his last name. Oh, and they were there to plug their book.

They didn't mention the 13 attacks on our embassies and consulates or that 60 were killed during the bush administration. I don't think rupert merdoch's sheep would be interested in reading that book or talking about it endlessly.

79cambridge(3013 comments)posted 1 week, 1 day ago

skeevoeivo....exactly, who is bob? These agents for The Central Intelligence Agency would have you believe that they get their orders from someone who they don't even know his last name. I'm not surprised that you believe them.

How come you and your buddy chessiedad never mention the 60 killed when 13 of our embassies and consulates were attacked during the bush administration? Oh, I know why, rupert told all of his sheep to stand down. All little sheepie must obey rupert.

skeevoeivo....yep, the four people that were fired that were in charge of security and dropped the ball are lying.

The so called CIA agents that claim a guy named bob told them to stand down and are now promoting their book on the fixed noise network have no credibility.

You know who's not lying? The government agencies and the US military that did investigations and say there was no coverup.

Now, when are you going to start talking about the 60 killed in the 13 attacks on our embassy's and consulates during the bush administration or is rupert still having all his sheep stand down?

Difference between Benghazi and the 13 attacks during Bush administration are
1. The ambassador wasnt assassinated
2. Didn't happen 5 weeks before election
3 . no one knowingly lied about the cause of the attack

Here is a list of attacks on our embassies and consulates during the bush administration.

January 22, 2002. Calcutta, India. Gunmen associated with Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami attack the U.S. Consulate. Five people are killed.

June 14, 2002. Karachi, Pakistan. Suicide bomber connected with al-Qaida attacks the U.S. Consulate, killing 12 and injuring 51.

October 12, 2002. Denpasar, Indonesia. U.S. diplomatic offices bombed as part of a string of “Bali Bombings.” No fatalities.

February 28, 2003. Islamabad, Pakistan. Several gunmen fire upon the U.S. Embassy. Two people are killed.

May 12, 2003. Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Armed al-Qaida terrorists storm the diplomatic compound killing 36 people including nine Americans. The assailants committed suicide by detonating a truck bomb.

July 30, 2004. Tashkent, Uzbekistan. A suicide bomber from the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan attacks the U.S. Embassy, killing two people.

December 6, 2004. Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Al-Qaida terrorists storm the U.S. Consulate and occupy the perimeter wall. Nine people are killed.

March 2, 2006. Karachi, Pakistan again. Suicide bomber attacks the U.S. Consulate killing four people, including U.S. diplomat David Foy who was directly targeted by the attackers. (I wonder if Lindsey Graham or Fox News would even recognize the name “David Foy.” This is the third Karachi terrorist attack in four years on what’s considered American soil.)

September 12, 2006. Damascus, Syria. Four armed gunmen shouting “Allahu akbar” storm the U.S. Embassy using grenades, automatic weapons, a car bomb and a truck bomb. Four people are killed, 13 are wounded.

January 12, 2007. Athens, Greece. Members of a Greek terrorist group called the Revolutionary Struggle fire a rocket-propelled grenade at the U.S. Embassy. No fatalities.

March 18, 2008. Sana’a, Yemen. Members of the al-Qaida-linked Islamic Jihad of Yemen fire a mortar at the U.S. Embassy. The shot misses the embassy, but hits nearby school killing two.

July 9, 2008. Istanbul, Turkey. Four armed terrorists attack the U.S. Consulate. Six people are killed.

September 17, 2008. Sana’a, Yemen. Terrorists dressed as military officials attack the U.S. Embassy with an arsenal of weapons including RPGs and detonate two car bombs. Sixteen people are killed, including an American student and her husband (they had been married for three weeks when the attack occurred). This is the second attack on this embassy in seven months.

Oh ya, and the thousands killed by bin lauden on 9/11 after ignoring warnings that he was planing an attack on US soil. After the attack bin lauden's family was allowed to fly out of the US while all Americans were grounded. Shortly after bush allowed bin lauden to escape when our troops had him cornered in Tora Bora so he could invade Iraq on a pack of lies. He later said he had no interest in hunting down bin lauden. Obama did hunt him down and killed him.
