    President Obama is imo one of the worst presidents ever. He should fall on his sword. Yes I said it, the suicide option he should consider.

    You should no the difference between political pandering, and ones actual record.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    No you should tell me, Who was doing the politicial pandering and the ones with the actual record. Do you understand what was said, and the positions taken, during those Presidential debates? No offense, but is English your first language?

    I wouldn't say I approve of him at this point, but he is not the worst.

    I think in terms of economic policy he gets a big fat F. I disagree with him on almost every economic issue though.

    In terms of his foreign policy though I think it is too early to tell. He got Bin Laden for one thing and made it a priority for his administration. Although the brave soldiers accomplished this, we need to give Obama some credit as commander in chief.

    I am glad he prudently pulled out of Iraq and is doing the same in Afghanistan. I think it was time for Iraq and time for Afghanistan, but we can't just turn tail and leave, I believe if you break it you bought it, to some extent. It would simply be cruel to trash a whole country and then walk out and leave it to the extremists to run roughshod over.

    On the other hand I have mixed feelings on his stances in regards to Iran and Israel. I genuinely hope this Iran nuclear deal works, I actually want it to be successful, but in the end I am not positive Iran is not bluffing. I have come to believe over the years that if we withdrew our support for Israel a second holocaust would be virtually guaranteed. I used to buy into the isolationist Ron Paul/Pat Buchanan wing of the GOP, although the more I study the issue the more I have come to believe the USA is the only thing standing between Israel and its destruction. Israel has a great military but cannot face down every enemy. Perhaps for some leaving Israel to its fate is justifiable, but for me it is not.

    I do not think Obama is anti-Israel or pro-Iran, because I don't buy into any conspiracies, but he seems to have an optimistic liberal view of the world. I think he believes extending an olive branch will change people's minds. I think he is fundamentally not an ideological guy so he doesn't really understand the mind of an ideologue, which is why I think he underestimates a lot of the blind hatred for Israel and the US in the world.

    I do not consider Obama to be the worst president though. I consider Wilson to be the worst because he trampled on civil liberties far more than any president before or since, and arguably was one of our most racist presidents.

    As for my own personal views on him I believe that President Obama is a decent man with whom I share a different worldview, but I am sure he is a good family man. In terms of his political views I do not believe he is a Marxist, merely a typical big government liberal no different than FDR, LBJ, Carter or any other Democrat who has come along since then. In terms of religion he seems to be some sort of liberal Christian universalist, not a "radical Muslim." His father had Muslim heritage, but was himself an atheist his entire adult life.

    Three for sure. I have him tied with Reagan: nothing special, divisive with no real accomplishments, more of a salesman/actor than a real leader, diconnected from day-to-day operations...an endless list of comparrisons actually.

    He's the Democrat's Reagan.

    The proof republicans are full of crap is when they say Obama is worse than Bush Jr. Only a die hard partisan makes that remark with a straight face.

    To be honest, I was expecting more liberals to vote that he is average. Nice to see some waking up to reality.

    I was hoping more Conservatives would finally admit he is just average. Too bad most still have their heads up their ass.

    What's funny is Obama should have been a one-term president, but the GOp couldn't get out of its own way. So he cake-walked into a second term.

    I guess that's why the Right is kicking at anything except simply admitting they did it to themselves. How else can you loses to Obama twice and say he's the worst president who ever lived? Talk about a lack of personal responsibility.
