    Barack Obama is the dumbest president...EVER.


    That is a reasonable conclusion once you've assessed the first nineteen months of his presidency and compared it to the definition of intelligence put together by researchers in the field. Although the mainstream media have spent the last two years proclaiming Obama "super-smart" or, as Newsweek put it, "sort of God" in stature and brilliance, the 44th president of the United States is poised to surpass our 15th president, James Buchanan. Jr., as the White Houseoccupant who has made the dumbest moves while in office. With two years left, he is on the fast track to last.


    That takes some doing, for the leadership of the hapless Buchanan prior to the Civil War "has led to his consistent ranking by historians as one of the worst Presidents." This is the president who vetoed a college funding bill because "there were already too many educated people" in the young nation. Buchanan's judgment was so wretched that he thought anti-slavery forces could be convinced to give up their opposition by his personal assurances that slaves were "treated with kindness and humanity" and that poverty could be ended by simply printing more money. Sound familiar?


    Barack Obama is dumb. How dumb? Alfred E. Newman dumb, says columnist David Limbaugh, who labeled him "President Alfred E. Obama" because of his blithe disregard of the basics of fiscal responsibility. Alfred E. Newman is the Mad magazine mascot, whose answer to every problem is his signature statement: "What, me worry?"

    He is for himself and what he can add to his name in history books ... nothing more.

    As one of the most anti-Obama folks on here, I must strongly disagree with you. Barack Obama is anything but dumb. He is in fact very, very smart.

    What we have to do is take into account perspective. For us, the end goal of policy should be a stronger, more powerful, wealthier America. He is taking us opposite of that, for sure.

    Some people claim to be global citizens, and see the USA as an oppressive force on the planet whose wealth is holding back other nations, and that all nations should be brought into equality with each other, starting by bringing America down a few notches.

    Coming from that perspective, Obama is doing just about as good a job as a president could ever do. We must look at his own words. He said "I'd rather be a great 1 term president than a bad 2 term president".

    Well, if he was "great", he'd get re-elected. If he was bad, he would be 1 term. BUT....if you take into account perspective? "Great" according to 75% of Americans? Or great according to the small % of far left globalists? The 1st great will get him re-elected. The 2nd great will make him a 1 term president, but "great" in the eyes of the far left globalists. So, by his own words, he is which?

    President Obama took office in the midst of the worst recession in 70 years. The financial sector was in a panic and GM, Chrysler and most major banks were on the verge of collapse. If they collapsed, we would be in a Depression right now. Upon taking office, Obama shored up the banks and provided a bailout to the automakers to save this critical manufacturing sector.
    Almost immediately, the plunging stock markets reversed themselves and have rebounded 60%. By all accounts, we have emerged from recession and are starting a slow but steady recovery.
    In Jan 2009, we were losing 700,000 jobs a month. We have had positive jobs growth in 4 of the last 5 months and unemployment rate has dropped from a high of 10.2% to its current 9.5%
    Ronald Reagan, at this point in his Presidency had unemployment rise to 10.8% before he saw a reverse

    Obama took office in the midst of two wars. A daunting task for any President. Complicating his mission was a global mistrust of the US due to his predecessors misleading rationale for starting an unnecessary war, bullying tactics and single minded strategy
    He ordered the withdrawal of troops from the hot zones in Iraq and turned over control of those regions to Iraqi forces.
    As promised, he turned the wars away from nation building into a war on terrorism again. He plussed up the troop strength in Afganistan and allowed US forces to retake territory surrendered to the Taliban when that other president invaded Iraq.
    Obama also rebuilt international alliances and convinced them to become more engaged in Afghanistan. Most importantly, he engaged Pakistan as an equal partner and assisted their attempts to retake Taliban stronholds on the Afghan border.
    He has intensified drone strikes to kill key AlQaida and Taliban leaders.

    President Obama is the first president to pass a comprehensive nationwide healthcare plan. After over 100 years of trying, the US has joined the rest of the industrialized world in ensuring that its citizens have access to healthcare.
    In spite of massive lobbying by the insurance industry and rampant fear mongering and misinformation generated from the right, president Obama along with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid managed to hammer out a deal long after most considered healthcare to be dead.
    Is the bill flawless.?....hell no
    Is there more to be done?....hell yes

    But the bill did establish the groundwork for comprehensive coverage for all Americans. Despite repeated attempts by Republicans to rip it up and lame promises of "we will help you this time, no really, trust us, we republicans want Americans to hae access to healthcare"...Obama pushed through a deal that will be a hallmark of his presidency

    Damn....and its only been 18 months so far....pretty impressive
