Given antics of his predecessors, Obama is hardly worst president



Published: Mon, July 14, 2014 @ 12:00 a.m.

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

David,
You can't be serious. You must have written this letter just to get a reaction. This Liar is the worst POTUS since the Revolutionary War, let alone WWII. Fast and Furious, Benghazi (What difference does it make, IRS scandal, release of 5 terrorists from Guantanamo, Liar care debacle, immigration disaster, War on Coal, Keystone pipeline. Everything this Liar touches is a disaster.

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.

The left wing loonies don't care that 4 Americans were killed in Benghazi. In fact they say "what difference does it make"

The left wing loonies don't care that the IRS is used for political with hunts. I wonder how they would feel if they were the ones being audited?

The left wing loonies don't care that 5 terrorists were released from Guantanamo to rejoin the fight.

The left wing loonies don't care that the President makes up the laws as he goes along and enforces only those laws that he likes. Thank heavens for the Supreme Court.

The left wing loonies don't care that the coal industry is being killed for no reason at all.

The left wing loonies don't care that the Keystone Pipeline is still not being built for a new source of oil.

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.

The RW loony' s can't understand that the new abundance of NG is the biggest enemy of coal.If RW loony's really want to help the coal industry they should use coal to heat their homes, The 10s of thousands new job's created would far outnumber the KS pipeline would create Why weren't the RWL concerned about the hundreds of dead Americans in previous embassy attacks before 2009. 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.

The LWL can't understand that COAL IS NOT BAD. Our electricity rates are increasing because the Liar wants to remove the last speck of dust from the air (as soon as it rains the last speck of dust will be removed anyway). The LWL don't understand that the oil from Canada is going to reach the market whether they like it or not, it is only a matter of the means of transportation of that oil. Its either the pipeline or trucks and trains. The LWL don't understand that the so called POW was a deserter and was merely used an excuse to begin the shutdown of Guantanamo by releasing all of the terrorists.

Did not realize there were so many uneducated people still believing the right wing garbage fed them. 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.

"Still, this badly conceived program to trace illegal guns began in 2006, before Obama." More blame Bush.

"What he should have said was "You can keep your insurance unless it's JUNK, then no - you have to get a valid policy." False, but a fine left wing talking point.

"she was referring to the deaths themselves?" I know.

"Actually, "left-wing" groups WERE AUDITED" Yeah, about 1 for every 100 conservative groups. Another fine left wing talking point to obfuscate.

"HA! Gitmo should have been closed years ago, or never opened! It was full of ordinary blokes who were fingered by rivals in their home countries as an easy way to get rid of opponents, or, indeed, anyone they had a grudge against." So America are the bad guys and the terrorists are the good guys???

"So, here is what it is all about -- another shill for the fossil-fuel industry trolls newspaper sites churning out PR for the coal and oil companies. Rather than an ideologically pure right-wingnut, here is a paid hack."
This is entirely false but very indicative of how the left wing extremists start with personal attacks when the hear something they don't agree with.

"I don't know about other "left-wing loonies," but this left-wing looney (me) thinks that if more pipelines are NEVER built, it will be too soon."
Try to get it through your thick skull. The oil from Canada is going to get to market whether Tom Steyer likes it or not. It is only a matter of what means of transportation is going to be used.

It really is pretty obvious who the haters are!

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.

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.

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.

"If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program."
--President Bill Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998

"Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face."
--Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998

"He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983."
--Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998

"[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs."
Letter to President Clinton, signed by:
-- Democratic Senators Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others, Oct. 9, 1998

"Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."
-Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998

"Hussein has ... chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies."

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.

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.

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.

No, a better analogy would be if my credit card bill came due and I decided not to pay it because the bills were for things my wife charged (previous Presidents). Then to get her back, I would go out and charge 10 times as much as she charged and then blame her for everything. I would charge things that I didn't even need and give away money to everyone who asked me for some.

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...

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!

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.

Comrade Iajoci,
Maybe in your idealistic Socialist state, the government can force whatever "news/propaganda" they want on the folks, but here in America we are free to turn the channel to whatever station we like.

Comrade Iajoci,
What do you folks do at these "upper division seminars" Discuss Karl Marx' Communist Manifesto? Consider the agenda for the upcoming Politburo meeting? Do they have break out sessions to tell participants how they can get more freebies from the government?

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.

All the News networks are biased, it is only how biased. Fox News has less bias than any of the other networks.

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.

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.

"A former State Department official has told lawmakers that Hillary Clinton allies privately removed politically damaging documents before turning over files to the supposedly independent board investigating the Benghazi terror attack.

The account from Raymond Maxwell, former head of the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs (NEA), was first published in The Daily Signal. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, confirmed to FoxNews.com on Monday that Maxwell told him and other lawmakers the same story when they privately interviewed him last year about the attacks and their aftermath.

Chaffetz said that Maxwell claimed Clinton's chief of staff and deputy chief of staff were overseeing the document operation, which allegedly took place on a weekend in a basement office of the State Department.

"What they were looking for is anything that made them look bad. That's the way it was described to us," Chaffetz said.

According to Chaffetz' account of his interview with Maxwell, as well as the Daily Signal report by Sharyl Attkisson, Maxwell said those scrubbing the documents were looking for information that would cast Clinton and senior leaders in a "bad light."

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?

There were many attacks on our embassies going back to Bush, Clinton, Carter but none of those folks are POTUS and none of them are going to run for POTUS. I guess the POTUS was responsible for Pearl Harbor too, but he isn't going to run for POTUS either.

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.

"The White House acknowledged Wednesday that President Obama would consider putting U.S. troops in "forward-deployed positions" to advise Iraqi forces in the fight against the Islamic State -- even while insisting U.S. troops would not be sent back into a "combat role" in Iraq."

This is not a war in Iraq. It is a major counter-terrorism operation with troops deployed in forward positions and the release of explosive devices from elevated positions.

Obama, said Swanson, “can get away with some abuses and worse and be forgiven because he engages in wars more eloquently and reluctantly, but the people who die in the wars are just as dead and the people who suffer from the sabotaging of climate agreements have their climate just as destroyed.”
