The country’s chief narcissist, Barack Obama, has, of course, a very high opinion of himself as President of these United States. At one time or another, President Obama has compared himself favorably with Lincoln, Roosevelt, Kennedy, and Reagan. But, the Washington Examiner reports o the results of a YouGov/Economist survey of 1000 US adults interviewed October 26-28, 2013 on the greatness of Presidents. My guess is that Valerie Jarrett has made sure that Mr. Obama has and will never see the results of this poll.
Polling highest in the category “Great” was Ronald Reagan with 32% followed by Franklin D. Roosevelt at 31%. John F. Kennedy pulled in 30% and Bill “Slick Willy” Clinton managed to get 27%. President Obama managed to tie Dwight Eisenhower at 14%.
Not all was bad news for Barack Obama, however. He can brag to his children that he came in first in one category. He may not want to mention that the category was “Failure”. Among failed presidents, Barack Obama pulled the highest at 37% followed by G. W. Bush at 32%, Richard Nixon at 30%, and Jimmy Carter at 22%. I bet that Jimmy Carter has these poll results framed and hanging in his office.
But, hey! Cheer up, Barry! There are still a few people out there who continue drinking your Kool-Aid. One of them, Jonathan Zimmerman, had an article published in the Washington Post. He thinks you should be allowed to run for a third term. He said:
Barack Obama should be allowed to stand for re election just as citizens should be allowed to vote for — or against — him. Anything less diminishes our leaders and ourselves.
That guy has been drinking some mighty potent Kool-Aid, hasn’t he? Me? I’m glad we have the 22 Amendment. Too bad it didn’t cover Congressmen and Senators, as well.
Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
