According to a new survey, Ronald Wilson Reagan edges out Franklin Delano Roosevelt as the greatest president of the 20th or 21st century. And the greatest failure? Barack Hussein Obama.
Quote:
The margin of “victory” is greater in the “failure” category for Barack Obama than recent president George W. Bush by 5 percent – although they are both seen as “below average” or a “failure” by nearly half. The total of “below average” and “failure” is 49% for President Obama, while 29% believe he is “great” or “near great.” (Click here to see full survey results and demographic breakdown.)

Heartwarming news on Thanksgiving Eve.

And the icing on the cake is that even more people think Obama is a failure than Bush. There's still three more years for his numbers to drop even more.

Reagan was the beginning of the end for the middle class. Amazing that many are still touting his trickle down voodoo supply side garbage economics.

As for the worst POTUS, scholars agree that it was Bush and you really need not be a scholar to know that.

Sometimes history is kinder, and sometimes current politics clouds the issues. Give Obama 15-20 years and the extreme views that cloud people's impressions of him now, will fade, and history will be more able to reflect his true ineptitude and failures as president.

Did you actually read the results? Bush is worse than Obama according to the poll - and JFK beats Reagan.

Obama is the welfare president. His one success is making more POOR people and trying to drag success down. JFK would not fare well in todays political climate. There are too many people asking what the country can do for them.

"And so, my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country. My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man."

—John F. Kennedy
