  1. Hey Pat Unger, why should I post my real name when there are trolls like you ready to send a hit squad after me for exercising my 1st amendment rights! Nothing I said in my comment can be determined as racist unless me referring o the country of Obama’s birth is racist. This would make every geography teacher in the world discussing Africa with their student racist I suppose you thin skinned lib! Go F’ yourself commie!

  2. I chuckle when I see commentators saying that Obama is the worst president ever. I have been disappointed with Obama on many occasions, but he will probably be ranked about 12th or 13th by historians 25 years from now.

    For context, take a look at the bottom of the Siena College historians poll from 2010.

    Worst Ever: Andrew Johnson, James Buchanan, Warren Harding, Franklin Pierce and George W. Bush.

    How can they forget about the debacle of W? Even those with a scant knowledge of history realize that he failed on almost every front. He has done irreparable damage to our nation and to the world.

    Obama, however, did pull us out of the great Republican Recession of 2008, among other accomplishments.

  3. Fascinating. Worst President Ever (so far), but compared to Clinton and Trump he begins to not look so bad ….

  4. Well, he is being quiet and trying to shape up his legacy. Will be out entire month of October. If Hiillary wins, watch out for lame duck presidential proclamations, regulations, etc. + super spending by the lame duck congress. Hard to watch politics anymore.

  5. 100 days to go and the foreign occupation regime of the Kenyan dictator will be over! Good riddance!
