Well, it’s official. Barack Obama has been pronounced the worst U.S. president ever by a panel of experts. The weak, inept and crooked little man was denounced for his flagrant failures with the economy, his many scandals, his disastrous foreign policy and for his blatant corruption, including his misuse of the FBI as his own personal secret police.
I’m no fan of Obama, but even I think it was hitting below the belt for the historians to point out Obama’s horrible college grades and his continued embarrassment over them and refusal to be open and transparent about them.
They were on much more solid ground pointing out the way Obama was patted on the head, coddled and lied about from day one, being granted a Nobel Peace Prize “on spec” after just a few months in office. And how youtube is loaded with videos of Barack making remarks every bit as stupid as any that the pathetic George W Bush ever made.
However, the experts have spoken and Obama now stands condemned by history for his many, many failures and dishonest acts. It’s no longer up for debate.
Surely the authority of “experts” and “historians” cannot be doubted. And for anyone asking, I will reveal which poll of historians I went by when the New York Times (“All the Obama Fan Fiction that’s fit to print”) reveals how many DEMOCRATS and how many REPUBLICANS and INDEPENDENTS were part of their ridiculous roundup of historians.
Those “experts” are as reliable I’m sure as the ones who told us Hillary “Bugsy” Clinton was going to win the election in 2016.
SERIOUSLY, CAN OUR HOPELESSLY BIASED (toward one side or the other) MEDIA STOP PRETENDING THAT THESE RANKINGS OF PRESIDENTS HAVE ANY REAL MEANING OUTSIDE OF THE USUAL PARTISAN SNIPING? THEY REFLECT NOTHING BUT THE PREJUDICES OF THE OUTLETS THEMSELVES.
THESE KINDS OF ITEMS ARE PURE WISH-FULFILLMENT GIVEN THE LOW STATE OF BOTH “JOURNALISM” AND “ACADEMICS” IN AMERICA TODAY.
IN MORE FAIR YEARS OF THE PAST SUCH LISTS WOULD NOT HAVE INCLUDED TRUMP AT ALL YET GIVEN HOW SHORT A TIME HE’S BEEN IN OFFICE. SHORT-TIME PRESIDENTS LIKE WILLIAM HENRY HARRISON, ZACHARY TAYLOR AND JAMES GARFIELD, LIKE TRUMP AT PRESENT, WERE ALWAYS LEFT OFF AS INELIGIBLE FOR PLACEMENT ON THE LIST.
