    I think you're being optimistic in your assessment. I think it's 50/50 if they can name Washington and Lincoln & Kennedy. Maybe I'm just curmudgeonly today.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Again, how are my "kool-aid goggles" clouding my judgement when I have acknowledged that

    #1. Obama was a horrible president
    #2. You need to do a comparison of Bush AND past presidents to make a call on Obama being the worst president

    I think it is YOU who has partisan goggles and and need to brush up on your reading comprehension. All you have done is post emoticons and not given ANY intelligent comments.

I mean, it is really sad that instead of realizing we have had two HORRIBLE presidents we have a contest going over who was worst when BOTH really suck overall.

    Hey guys! Have you seen the latest news? A sharply divided House of Representatives approved a Republican plan Wednesday to launch a lawsuit against President Barack Obama for exceeding the bounds of his constitutional authority. Details from site http://www.choose.tv/france24-en

    Right now I'd say Carter was the worst in my lifetime, Reagan was the best. Too early to predict where Obama will end up on the historical lists. Down at the bottom, I suspect, but worst ever? Too soon. We have to wait for the ME & Russia situations to play out, have to wait until the ACA is fully implemented, have to wait to see what the CFPB will do to the country, etc.

    He is a pretty awful President so far, that I see.

    If he's not so concerned with the "who is the worst?" question, then he should not have raised it in the OP

    And "horrible" is not determined by polls. I don't think he's "horrible"; just unimpressive

Pretty comparable if you ask me.
    If you're going to assert "worst ever" you should look at all the #'s and not just #'s from a specific time frame.

    Yeah, you have a point...We have to still suffer Carter and his utterly stupid, terrorist support today, I can only hope that Obama when he is done ****ing up the country, that he just goes away...I really can't stand to watch him speak anymore....I now understand how hard left liberals felt at the end of Bush's term.....

    It's funny you want me to "walk this back" yet YOU are the one claiming I had "kool-aid gogles" on. Healer heal thyself.
