    Even a few months ago I would say "Average"...A likeable mediocrity, like Gerald Ford.

    I mean, I have seriously considered voting for the guy, as a lesser evil - or, just maybe, something really different.... Some people who I really respect (Bill Weld, Colin Powell, Boris Johnson, Chris Buckley, to name a few) had been swayed by the same sentiment.

    Well, it's all over now.

    Barack Obama belongs right there in the dumpster of history, along with Tricky Dick, Jimmy Carter, Slick Willy and Bush Jr. (except that Dubya actually appears to be a decent human being, just totally inadequate in the role of President).

    "He's average" sounds like "bush did it" to me.

    A blatant liar is never a good president.

    Obama is a disaster as President, however, he is excellent as a Precedent.

    No American with even half a brain should consider voting for a man or woman for President again solely on the basis of a nice smile and being able to carry a tune. The experiment of voting for an empty suit that somehow symbolizes the lifting of past generational guilt has been valuable in the sense that your country was able to survive the disaster but you should never again waste eight years out of your country's future in such a foolish manner.

This gives them a chance to see how their policies effected the country and also gives time for the heavy partisanship to die down.

    I still run across those highly partisan's who place FDR way down on the bottom below such greats as Harding, Coolidge and Grant. Each of rates presidents differently and have different things that are important to them as to what they do or don't do. I do think Obama will probably end up being ranked around the top of the bottom third and Bush the second a little lower.

    I do know IKE is my number one of the 11 I remember and I have always ranked JFK as number two. But I think with JFK it was more for what might have been than what really was. But for me, that is just the way it is
    .



    I agree that Eisenhower was an excellent president.

    I put him pretty close to the top of the list.

    He was also a pretty good general.

    We could use a lot of politicians who think and act like him like him right now.

    I'm talking about people who put what's good for the USA ahead of what's good for the party that they belong to.

    Below average, somewhere between bad and mediocre.

    Just for comparison, where would you rank G.W. Bush in comparison to all Presidents of the USA?

    I put Bush close to the bottom, somewhere between bad and worse.

    Say what you want about Bush, he actually joined hands with the other side and sought to get majorities. The way this President is dividing the country sickens me.

    You might want to try to get some help for that because Obama is going to be in the White House until another Democrat takes his place in 2017.

    Three years is a long time to stay sick.
