    This is spot on...
    Read...
    What do historians really think of Obama? | Fox News.

    Liberals will not read this because it's found on the foxnews.com website. Or they will read it and instantly show a wide range of emotions. From dismissive to down right furious anger.
    That does not make this man's views any less correct.

    Can't we wait until he's actually out of office before instilling him in to the annals of history?

    Debating the source rather than the content?

    Is it untrue that Obama has been dining with historians through the vourse of his Presidency?

    Ok, Pay attention. Now, try debating the content of the article.
    You will not get away with simply dismissing the messenger.
    Have at it.

    Well, it's pure bullshit for several reasons:

    1. It's Fox News - and was written by Ed Klein (he's an Obama smear merchant).

    2. Not even one live source link.

    3. Obama hasn't even completed one term in office.

    Well it wasn't 'us' that asked the historians to multiple dinners, it was Obama. My money would be on Brinkley.

    I think the article was interesting and I think the guy nailed it.

    I agree that Obama hasn't connected with people. After listening to him for the last few years, I fail to see why he is considered such a good orator. He gets stumped easily without a teleprompter, and even with it, often mispronounces words, like 'corpseman.' There are a lot of er, ah , ehs....... and so forth. In his campaign, he came off sounding like a preacher and demanded attention. He gave the usual promises and his supporters anticipated that he'd be delivering the sun and moon. They're still waiting.

    He's divisive and I, for one, have felt more like a target than someone the president is addressing. I'm an enemy for wanting secure borders. I'm a racist for disagreeing with Obama's policies, particularly the oppressive health care reform. I'm greedy for wanting to keep enough of my money to send my own children to college. It's okay that I can pay hefty taxes for others to benefit, but don't have enough left for my own. And I don't qualify for giverment help. Between a rock and a hard place.

    Obama comes off as an arrogant elistist. He seems to fancy himself as the greatest president ever, surpassing Reagan, Lincoln and JFK. In reality, as the article points out, he will be in the same category as Jimmy Carter.

    He'll go down in history as the most divisive and least experienced CIC we've ever had.

    :lol:

    I remember when the media was shoveling that crap about how Obama was the smartest president ever (one week into his presidency). Then when he proved to be a stuttering, teleprompter reading dullard, they had to revert back to bragging about how smart Clinton was.

    Arrogant piece of garbage.

    Interesting.

    Obama only knows the pup culture version of history. :lol:

    Hmm. Sounds like his New Party.

    I take it he didn't listen to a damn word they said. Because I doubt the historians advice was to blame Republicans and continue with the same bloated failed policies.

    Yup. Thinking about himself rather than the American people.

    Getting good.

    I actually find his preacher style voice to be pretentious and annoying now. Once you realize a guy is full of hot air, it's just not inspiring at all. And frankly, he can't even do that when he's not giving a pre prepared speech that someone else wrote. There will be no "Dammit I paid for this microphone." moment for Obama.

    LMAO. Actually, I don't think Obama gives a damn about where he actually ranks. There's enough apologists who can make him look good enough. He actually gets his jollies from f'ing over the American people who he hates in the first place.
