Professors rank President Obama 15th best president of the USA "please leave your thoughts"
From the comments ive seen i think the real people may beg to differ on where to place Mr Obumma on the best to worst list




A new poll of leading presidential scholars ranks Barack Obama as the 15th best president of the United States, just below Bill Clinton but ahead of Ronald Reagan.

The Siena College poll, which surveyed 238 presidential scholars at U.S. colleges and universities, asked scholars to rate the nation’s 43 chief executives on 20 attributes ranging from legislative accomplishments to integrity and imagination.

In the overall ranking, Obama rated two places below Clinton, who was 13th best, and three better than Reagan, who is ranked as the 18th best.

Franklin D. Roosevelt again earned the top spot, as he has every time since the poll was first conducted in 1982. He and the Mount Rushmore presidents — Teddy Roosevelt, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson — have consistently been the top five presidents in the poll’s findings.

Obama’s 15th ranking is slightly higher than other presidents who have taken office since the poll started nearly 30 years ago. Most start out at about number 20, said Siena statistics professor and poll director Douglas Lonnstrom.

“[Obama’s] doing a little better, but he’s generally in the same ballpark,” he said.

While he ranked high on traits like imagination (6th), communication ability (7th) and intelligence (8th), Obama rated poorly ratings on background (32nd), which was composed of traits like family, education and experience.

Lonnstrom said the main factor that gives a president a top-five or top-10 ranking is his accomplishments — and an all-around high ranking in most categories.

FDR, for example, ranks in the top 10 for every category except integrity, he said.

“The experts really are looking for consistency, a president who is looking good across most of these categories,” he said.

Obama’s predecessor, George W. Bush, was ranked at number 23 in 2002 — the last time Siena’s presidential expert poll was conducted — but has since dropped to number 39, qualifying him as one of the five worst presidents. Bush came in at number 42 — second to last — on issues such as handling the U.S. economy, foreign policy accomplishments and intelligence. (Warren G. Harding was rated the least intelligent president).

Agreed, Obama is the worst.

I'm sure 97% of those "historians" VOTED for Obama, who in my opinion is a FRAUD anyway, and not really the President.

Re: Professors rank President Obama 15th best president of the USA "please leave your thoughts"
As far as I'm concerned, the jury is still out -- since it is reasonable to hold back judgement at this early stage of a Presidency.

But ... never in my lifetime, have I seen a President who has had so many complicated and serious issues to deal with at the same time. I'm just glad that he's not in a padded room somewhere, drugged and drooling -- because that would be an expected response to what he has to deal with everyday.

Just a few examples:
1. Economic collapse -- that occurred in September, 2008, just a few months before he assumed office.
2. Trillion dollar debt -- which is because of two wars, one of which he spoke out against in 2003.
3. North Korea -- the situation having deteriorated since the fall of 2002, when BushCo reniged on the agreements that were put in place over a number of years by the Clinton Administration.
4. Israel -- since October, 2001, right-wing hardliners have been in charge.
5. Russia -- who the hell knows what's really going on?
6. China -- which owns our ass. See Point 2.
7. Potential economic chaos in Europe. See Point 1.
8. Mexican border -- Drug Cartels, gangs, violence, brought about because of the actions of the Mexican government.
9. Gulf Oil Gusher -- an ongoing event beyond human technological capacity.

Let's get this straight:
1.January, 2001 -- Budget surplus and eight years of Peace and Prosperity.
2. January, 2009 -- Debt, two wars, economic collapse, and a divided and angry nation.

Give the man a fucking break if you have a soul.

I think we can only assume that he had limited the list to the 15 worst presidents , in that case I think he was correct.
