    I was born in 88 and I really don't know much about GHWB, except he promised to never raise taxes, raised them, then got usurped

    in hindsight Bill has a lot of warts

    GW was a dumpster fire

    so yes

    I've grown to love Obama... Especially second term Obama.


    But it's too early to say. We probably need 15-20 years before we'll really be able to look back and evaluate him objectively.

    Ranked:
    1. Obama
    2. Clinton
    3. HW Bush











    4. W Bush

    I mean, his competition is someone who was a good president but cheated on his spouse in office, a average President but nothing special, and a full blown retard. My vote wasn't really tough TBH

    Obamacare alone makes him a disaster. His poor handling of foreign affairs makes him a disaster. His that could be my son crap. Speaking at a cop benefit and saying mother's shouldn't have to worry about a cop killing their son every time he leaves the house. Obama has been horrific for this country. Race relations are the worst they've been since the civil rights era and that starts with Obama's remarks

    The Left's hatred of Reagan is amazing, though. I fucking adore it every time it springs forth from Mick or Chicago Seminole's fingers. IMO, take the Obama win and run with it, you don't have to tear down (oh shit) the Republican.

    Obama has been a very good president and I dare say history may look back upon him as a great one. Democrats should celebrate his presidency both for its historic impact and the wonderful job he did in patiently guiding the country back from the brink: We were in the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression when he took over whilst engaged in two horrible wars. He ended the wars and the economy has recovered in some measure due to his and the Federal Reserve's steady guiding hands.

    Overall, a wonderful man and presidency.

    Now, here is a composite ranking by Nate Silver showing the average rankings of American presidents in what were at the time the most recent (four) surveys by Presidential scholars.

    You'll notice that the scholars have Ronald Reagan ranked as the 10th best President of the United States

    Reagan was a great president with a lot of flaws :)

    Obamacare is a fucking train wreck. No way I can get behind a guy that forced people to buy something.

    National debt has multiplied.

    8 years is enough to fix some of the basic problems. GW inherited 9/11. Fuck you all if you think he was the worst.
