Even Barney Fife would look good right now. But whoever does win the nomination will have a ton of cleanup to do (massive debt, too much government, down economy, overregulation, etc..) once that person steps in. And a conservative-majority Congress would be a huge advantage for a conservative winner.

No, actually odanny was correct when stating you had the wrong Bush in your reply.

I was referring to George H. Bush, who served one term as president from 1998 to 1992, but was voted out of office due to being out of touch. His son is George W. Bush who served two terms from 2000 to 2008. Believe me, I wish only one Bush had been president.

Clinton had a balanced budget.

GW Bush turned Clinton's balanced budget in huge deficits and dangerous national debt.

And Obama has cut GW Bush's debt growth rate in half.

And Obama has spent less money than any president since Eisenhower.

Who Is The Smallest Government Spender Since Eisenhower? Would You Believe It's Barack Obama? - Forbes



And just so you know, the best thing that ever happened in your children's lifetime was Obama getting elected. Romney was going to add $6.6 trillion to our national debt with this,

Romney would have brought our debt to 150%-to-GDP (and our kids would have had nothing to borrow.)

Obama has, at best, an average IQ. He is inarticulate and cannot formulate a cogent response without a teleprompter. For ANYONE to believe that he has an IQ above average is...........well............. unbelieveable.
I get that its hard for you to get your head around the concept of Obama's genius... take a deep breath. That's what you get for listening to talking points instead of opening your eyes and ears to what is actually going on around you. Stephen Hawking may well be one of the brightest people to come along in awhile. Compared to Hawking, Einstien is himself only 'average' in intelligence. As I understand it, Hawking was an underacheiving student. Imagine that. So was Einstien too actually. You may decide how intelligent a person is by how they speak the Queen's English but behavioral scientists cannot afford to be so specific. How would you measure the intelligence of pre-verbal (or non-verbal) children? Animals? People for whom English is not a first language. Obama is far more articulate, in English, than Einstein was. Just saying.

2. High cost?

Are you talking about the "cost" of Obama, who has presided over an increase in debt from $8.6 trillion to $17 trillion with three years left to go????????

Are you talking about Obamacare, which will cost $3.2 trillion, leave more uninsured, raise costs and taxes?????
I am talking about the cost of trying to do nothing about the growing income inequality in this country. How long can the middle class continue to do all the financial heavy lifting involved in keeping the rubber side of the premier nuclear superpower on this planet, down? If you properly ascribe the costs of the Iraq and Afghani wars to the Bush administration where they belong! Obama starts out with 15Trillion on the table. An increase of 3Trillion in some of the most difficult financial times this country has ever seen is far from unreasonable. Republicans actually expected CUTS at this time... got them too.... Obama's performance in the last five years is like a quarterback who sets touchdown records with defensive linesmen hanging from his ankles. Thing is, the sportswriters leave that part out... they compare Obama's performance to quarterbacks of seasons past when quarterbacks had protection and the offensive line of his own team would go toe to toe with the enemy for him. You have to know that there are any number of Blue Dog Democrats undermining Obama's game from within. Did Clinton have that?


Quote:
Obama has already been considered the worst president in US history, even before his term is over, displacing Jimmy Carter from his pedestal. Only a kool-aid drinking worshipper would even suggest that Obama is a good president, let alone a genius.

Tell me................... if Obama is such a "genius", why was he considered-

a poor student?
a lazy and poor faculty member at U of Chicago?
and why has he not released his transcripts? A "genius" would have had all "A's"- nothing to hide
Hmmmm. I've always heard that "it takes one to know one". Carter actually is a genius. He just may be smarter than Obama in raw candlepower. If you were as smart as you claim to be, you would know that. Being smart didn't mean that Carter was successful as a politician did it? Nor does it mean he was a bad one. He got caught in a political situation. Clinton and Obama both would have kept their jobs if they had been in the White House at the time that Carter was. They use their intellects in different ways. At a certain point it doesn't matter what the actual IQ number is. It matters more how you apply it to the real world. How that is determined probably has to do with testosterone level... yes, I went there. This isn't to say that a woman can't make a good president. Women have evolved to be quick thinkers without testosterone. Men have not. Carter should not have been fired. He doesn't deserve to be considered as bad as he is considered. Neither does Obama. People do that because they can. After awhile they believe their own lies. And, finally, Obama has not released his transcripts because it isn't any of your business to see them.
