A new poll has rated Barack Obama as the worst U.S. president since World War II. Actually, he’s hands down the worst ever, but why pick nits?
“Over the span of 69 years of American history and 12 presidencies, President Barack Obama finds himself with President George W. Bush at the bottom of the popularity barrel,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
If Jonathan Bernstein is right, no one should ever vote for a modern Democrat:
Any Democrat in 2009 would have sought a large stimulus package. Any Democrat in 2009 would have made health-care reform a key issue, and any Democrat who could have been nominated would have produced a health plan similar to the one Obama worked for. Any Democrat would have attempted to pass a cap-and-trade bill on climate change, and barring that, would have worked both legislatively, when possible, and administratively the rest of the time to address the issue. (Barack Obama is a generic Democratic president)
And that, of course, is the problem.
Have a happy Independence Day (assuming we can still call it that):
