I am sure this question has been asked before but it just seems that everything this president does works against that very thing that made the United States the best country in the world period. Now with dropping the ball on Ebola, elimination of massive amounts of jobs, doing nothing to help the middle class in reality, we will most likely fall into the absolute worst recession or depression sometime soon in 2015, printing of money, open U.S borders, our future social security checks will be eaten by welfare, the ongoing war and the list continues, what was left in manufacturing has been chased out to Canada and alike. I cannot leave out the division that has been created as well over the last 6 years making everything about race or equality. Just imagine of there is an amnesty, far fewer Americans will have work.

Nothing is looking on the bright side.

I know there are those leftist warriors that will continue to stand behind this administration all the way to the end, but at the same there are a ton of democrats that have left the extreme left this administration has brought them.

Will this be named the worst ever presidency?

No. He isn't a great President, but he is far from the worst. US Grant, Truman, LBJ were worse. Carter was about equally bad. Ford was a bust. GW Bush is right there with Obama.

The best or worst president is almost entirely subject to your opinion. We will have to wait and see what a less biased time will say. The Democrats will say Obama is the best president along with FDR and LBJ, Republicans (that includes "independent" conservatives and libertarians) will say Obama is the worst president, right alongside LBJ and FDR.

Absolutely the worst.

He hasn't hit rock bottom. He still has two years to screw up even more.

He's certainly the dumbest. Kind of goes along with his supporters.

I have like a 20 year rule unless someone just does something that stands out.

in Obamas case the jury is out. Im too partisian to see it clearly at this point. I think he stinks. but

Franklin Pierce
James Buchanan
Herbert Hoover
Jimmy Carter

all have something to say on the subject... He does however seem to be a good fit for that crowd. giggle.

Possibly, but the field is getting crowded.

He is the first president in the social media age which puts a whole new angle on things and shapes opinions fairly or not. Presidents are judged in retrospect and in the context of history. I think Obama will be OK - not great but average.
Maybe the biggest thing we are learning from Obama's presidency is that presidents in general can't really do much about what happens in the world. They are not the all powerful people we seem to expect them to be.
