I suppose by this time next year it will be painfully obvious to everyone in this country that Obama is the worst president we have ever had, even surpassing Jimmy Carter in incompetence.

Unfortunately, the taxpayers will be paying for his deficits for decades to come in higher taxes, devalued currency and inflation.

The only thing worse than an incompetent liberal in the White House, is an incompetent liberal in the White House with both Houses of Congress controlled by incompetent liberals. They are spending trillions, raising taxes and haven't a clue how they will pay for any of it.

We sure got the "best" of both worlds this time around.

sad that the most important job in the country continues to be used as training ground for all the rookies who know nothing about management.

The collective amnesia of conservatives is amazing....Obama even worse than Jimmy Carter (you got to be joking)? What about George W. Bush? By far the worst president of our time..let's see: two unneccesary wars costing over $1 trillion - check; total de-regulation leading to the worst recession in 75 years - check; turning a budget surplus into more total federal debt than all previous presidents combined - check; selling out our manufacturing base and our debt to the Chinese - check; suspending Haebaes Corpus - check. How much more damage could one man do in 8 years?

You are correct -- Bush II was the hands-down worst President we have ever had.

Rated by liberal left wing scourge of the Earth SCHOLARS (love those dudes)...they are nearly as idiotically stupid as "Fred Flintstone's" post above (not quite). He's so damn dumb, he can't even come up with an original post name!
Being facetious on Mr. Tracy to impress Freddie.

Bet "Freddie" and "Honestly" voted for oBOMBo; you know, because they didn't want to disappoint Great-grandpa (D). Any takers?

That's kind of funny, considering that Hannity, Beck, and Limbaugh all hate FDR.

It's a Republican strategy to repeat lies over and over again until the moronic public believes it.

The Democrats are amateurs and just now learning how to do it. The Republicans have been doing it for so long that they know nothing else.

We Republicans hate smart educated people...what did you call them? liberal left wing scourge of the Earth SCHOLARS...yea, we need to keep attacking smart, educated people and praise and listen to the uneducated, college drop outs like Rush and Sean...our party relies on stupid, morons in order to survive.
