    So, by this question you are allowing for Dwight D. Eisenhower, spanning 10 Presidents, some that are above reproach.  Sorry, but the men Obama proceeds are without equivocation, heads and shoulders above the community organizer.

    He is, without any doubt, the absolute worst the country has ever had.

    Absolutely NOT.  I prefer him to Bush, but J.F.K. was the greatest President that this country has ever had.

    I didn't vote for the guy and have never regretted it! I would actually say he is one of worst presidents other than Bush,jr.

    In short, no. President Obama has temporarily held off the total collapse of the economy with a government spending bubble that may last for another decade. He fought a bubble with a bubble. Financial disaster has been postponed for the next president to handle. But any person of reason will never consider President Obama our best president. It is part of American mythology that after 20, 30, or 50 years, bad presidents will suddenly sprout wings and be remembered as good presidents. Because facts do not change over time, this never actually happens. Although half of the Americans do know something about their history, they are not objective about it and so they do not understand it properly. The rest of Americans have no basic concept of history and forget everything every four years. As a result of all of this, they don't know to whom they can compare Obama after 50 years.

    He is the president only because he never had to prove that he was a legal citizen the the unitedstates.He uses teleprompters like they were manditory in order to say something without making a fool of himself.in public.He helped create the bubble in realestate in the first place as a community organizer for acorn.The nuts who forced the mortgage companies to make loans to people can't afford them using ARMS or "Adjustable Rate Mortages" to con-vince the people that took those loans that they could pay them back.Even though the knew that it was not very likely.The government backed mortgage companies like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac had nothing to lose because they knew the goverment would step in and make them whole.They even get to keep the properties they made loans on due to foreclosure.Unless they didn't have proof that they were the owners of those properties legally.

    Bush and congress are just as responsable though,because they knew what was going on and did nothing to stop it,because it was proping up the economy and both the republicicans and the democrats were hoping that they could use the realestate bubble to their advantage politically.

    If Obama was the best president in the last fifty years the Republicans would not have gained 62 seats in the House  not to mention gains in the Senate, in the last congressional election,or to use Obama's own words a "shellacking". The congressional election clearly shows most Americans do not approve of the direction that the country is going! Most Americans disapprove of the health care bill which had little in put from the Republicans and was voted on without even being read by members of congress. While companies are rebounding earnings wise, they are reluctant to hire because of they do not know what taxes Obama's administration has in store for them and how much the Obama health care plan is going to cost. Unemployment remains over 9% and the 800 billion dollar stimulus seems to have had little effect, other than putting our country deeper in dept for what amounted to a huge pork barrel spending spree!
