Obama’s Presidency: Probably The Worst In U.S. History

by Dave Kranzler, Investment Research Dynamics:

I vividly recall stating to friends and colleagues in the summer of 2008 that W was the worst President in history. At that point I was welcoming the idea of Obama: a guy who seemed completely detached from Washington’s inside mafia and Wall Street’s never-arraigned felons. I was ecstatic over his promise to clean up the fraud and corruption that had been engulfing Wall Street and Capitol Hill over the past couple of Presidents.

About a year into his first term, I had Obama figured out. His campaign slogans were empty billows of mendacious smoke billowing from his mouth. He has not followed through on one plank in his campaign platform. The only people who can’t see it are his slavishly blind devotees, many of whom are afraid to say anything negative about a black man out of fear of being labelled a racist. It was brilliant exercise in psychology by the insiders who selected Obama over Hillary in 2008. At that point I told friends and colleagues that Obama will possibly go down as the worst President in history.

Part of the catalyst was the high expectations for which we were set up. He seemed like he really wanted to make a difference. A close friend argued with me the other day that it’s not Obama’s fault – that Congress has prevented Obama from fulfilling his promises. But that is thoroughly untrue. Obama has actively employed the act of Executive Order routinely and systematically to override Congress, as a threat to override Congress and as a device to circumvent the Constitution. This is the very same act of Executive Order he promised to eliminate from the Oval Office tool chest. Everyone remember him making that promise? Because I recall it distinctly

The author of Washington’s Blog wrote a must-read commentary which details why Obama’s Presidency has been a complete failure – possibly the greatest failed Presidency in history: “Bush was a horrible president. At the time, I thought he was the worst president in American history…”

…But Obama has made a lot of firsts himself:

Prosecuted fewer financial crimes than President Reagan, Clinton or either of the Bush presidents. (As bad as the Bush administration was, they at least prosecuted the heads of Enron, Worldcom and some other white collar crooks. In contrast, Obama hasn’t prosecuted even one high-level Wall Street executive.)

Is the most secretive president ever

Is more hostile to the press than any president in history

Claims the power to strip Americans’ liberty in a way that no other president has ever tried to claim … and that even King George of England didn’t claim. Indeed, Obama has rolled back some of our liberties to the time of the enactment of the Magna Carta in 1215.

    The WORST President in American History?

    Woodrow Wilson. Hands down.

    • tomche

      I liken Woodrow. Wilson versus George Bush versus Barry Sotero in the following light:

      Syphilis versus Polio versus Leprosy.

      All terrible and we need to eradicate all of them.

    Obama’s legacy is that of the greatest red herring in the history of the world.
    Witness his latest foray into gender bending public restroom use as the most
    important issue we currently need to address, having evidently tired of issuing
    empty threats to prosecute climate change deniers. He touts a broken economy as
    being fixed, telling us “folks” that if you don’t believe him at his word, then
    you are peddling fiction. He tries to humiliate college grads by telling them
    they did it, not by hard work, but by luck. He threatens foreign leaders to not
    devalue their currency while dictating economic policy that deflates the dollar
    into oblivion. He lectures us about what the limits of our fair share is, while
    ignoring the crimes of Wall Street and the banksters and rewarding them with
    trillions. He’ll state a position (you can keep your doctor, your medical costs
    will go down $2500 dollars a year) ad nauseum, and then point blank deny he ever
    said it. He is a walking talking contradiction and yes, the worst president not
    only in my lifetime (I’m 60), but probably ever.
    if not just in my li
