Every week they have a for us or against us feature being part of the partisan press. Being on "our side" so I guess President Obama has done more for what Rolling Stones editors want for the rest of world then any other President in history. Fair enough

They are all dwarfs compared to our great "Hope".
You should probably learn history. Washington carried out a genocide on the Acadians in what was then the 14th North American colony. Teddy Roosevelt enacted anti-trust legislation when there were not any real cartels that existed except ones that the government had guaranteed would have monopolies. Lincoln didn't "guide" the country through a civil war, he provoked it because he was pissed off that Charleston diidn't wanna pay the port tariffs. FDR was a fascist, through and through, and LBJ... come on.

Obama was certainly not the worst president, most of the guys you named were way worse. But yeah, he's pretty far down there on the terrible scale. But, hey, who doesn't love a good dose of Pravda-style American history once in a while?

I appreciate you posting the article, but let's make a few things clear:

Rolling Stone did not name Pres. Obama anything. The article was written by noted economist Paul Krugman

As far as calling him the "the most successful President in history", I have not read this article and do not believe that Krugman said this. My guess is the OP did not even read this article.

^Ahh yes that explains it then... Paul Krugman, the nobel prize ivory tower NYT employed "economist" who absolutely failed to predict the financial crisis of 2008.

Economists are the snake oil salesmen of the 21st century. He's got every reason in the world to kiss Obama's ass.

Come on, dude, you didn't know Paul Krugman is like, the smartest person ever in the whole world!?!

"Blah blah blah... big words... blah blah blah... twisted logic.... blah blah blah...." - Paul Krugman

Somewhere in his mealy-mouthed linguistic acrobatics are principles of economics that minds like yours and mine are far too feeble to grasp, duh.
