    Like many Americans who supported him, I long for a triple-A president to run a triple-A country.

    Mr. Zuckerman is chairman and editor in chief of U.S. News & World Report

    Mr. Zuckerman was on Fox today and reiterated that he has made mistakes. His support of Obama was one of them.

    If a Republican president saved the auto-industry, got Bin Laden in a special opts, gave the biggest working class tax cut in American history, signed a bill authorizing the reduction of spending by 15%, all the while reversing the most devastating economic collapse in 80 years....the Republicans would hail him as the Second Coming of Christ!

    But instead we have a president who okayed thethe militay's special ops strategy to get Bin laden, did not turn around the economy, but is known as the "5 Trillion Dollar Debt President, strayed as we experienced two credit downgrades, and encouraged class divisions in this country.

    Probably.

    It's to bad Obama did none of those things.

    He did get our credit rating reduced though. Got to give him that much.

    We actually had 2 consecutive Conservative Presidents who got us out of a Great Depression and crushed unemployment from 12% to 4% in 18 months.

    If FDR was "Great" for never dipping unemployment below 14% for 8 years, they, yes, Harding and Coolidge be Gods in comparison

    If he does anything positive or "good," like kill OBL, republicans will spin away to make it look like republicans deserve the credit. They still say the bush administration's torture policies is what led to OBL going bye bye...or, they will try to make it look like what he did was, "bad." Rush was just beside himself over Obama giving the order to kill those poor innocent Somali Pirates holding the ship's captain hostage. Ya got to wonder if republicans ever get sick of themselves.
