Fickle the hands of events, coupled with stupid: In a survey of 1,446 registered voters, 33 percent said Obama was the worst president since World War Two, while 28 percent pointed to his predecessor, George W. Bush, as the worst, the poll by Quinnipiac University found.
A blue-tinted, sad graph at USAToday shows next down from George Jr. is Dick Nixon at 13 percent, then Jimmy Carter at 8 percent.
On the plus, ‘best-president’ side, Ron Reagan considered the most-excellent since 1945.

And Reagan was a landslide — 35 percent of the voters polled, followed way-down by Bill Clinton at 18 percent, and JFK at 15. A history-hole: Obama tallied even further down at a measly 8 percent as best president.
Not all shitty for the president, though. This brief respite from Roll Call: If there’s any consolation in those figures for the president, very few voters polled consider those issues the most important issues facing the country today: 6 percent picked “foreign policy,” 3 percent picked “war” and another 3 percent picked “terrorism.” The economy and jobs topped the poll by a significant margin.
The Washington Post‘s The Fix blog also has a good rundown of the Quinnipiac poll.
My take on this shit: How can anyone with any kind of walking-around sense, who’s half- assed up with news and events, ever say any American president is worse than George Jr.? The boy’s time in the White House was way-by-far the worse in US history on many, many levels.
Obama is just a huge, humungous clusterfuck of a disappointment, also on many, many levels — but far, far from the worse.
