There are 21% of Americans that think the USA is "on the right course". I think those are the same 21% still supporting Obama.(and maybe all of them are participants on this forum)

Actually, 45% of the public approves of Obama.

Default Is Obama the Worst President in US History?

Of course not. What a ridiculous question.

Nixon was slightly more cynical than President Obama.

Carter was slightly more incompetent at actually governing than Obama.

The Grant administration was slightly more corrupt than Obama's.

Wilson was even more hampered by counterproductive ideology than Obama.

No way is Obama the worst president in US history. He comes close on some measures, but he's not there--yet.

nope, Grant, Reagun and Bush II all would be at the top of the list.

Grant for his scandals and inability to govern effectively

Reagun for his Strave the Beast, VooDoo economics, Iran/Contra and his long series of blunders and scandals. His many records for unemployment still stand.

Bush for not seeing that Usama was determined to strike, even when told. His unfunded tax cuts for the wealthy and his unfunded Part D, his Great Recession, His bank bailouts, his bogus wars sold to the public with lies, the general trashing of the middle class. oh, and trusting the neocons.

Even democrats have to be unhappy that his failed policies have cost the party the house and soon will cost them the senate and the presidency.
the ONLY thing I am disappointed in Obama is that he wasted time negotiating with the GOP roadblock. As Bush said, he had political capital and he should have ignore the GOP and moved forward with his program, the program we elected him to do.

Not true, in up to date polling data:

Romney beats him here: (47-42)

Election 2012: Romney 45%, Obama 42% - Rasmussen Reports™

And here: (51-47)

http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2011/im.../14/rel18b.pdf

Obama has been hanging in the low 40's, against a "generic" Republican Candidate which is a more accurate way of measuring Obama's support than any hypothetical nominee. Once the nominee is set, we can see how they compare to Obama
