  3. True.Obama will go down as one of this country's greatest Presidents
     
  4. Yes, he will. For the exact same reason that George Washington Carver went down as one of the "greatest scientists". LOL!!!

     
  5. All Obama needs to do to match FDR is to pick a minority group, take their property and lock them up.

    Then he need to have IRS agents stationed in every bank and force all citizens to open their safety deposit boxes in front of the IRS agent. Then allow that agent to confiscate all your gold.

    FDR...what a joke

    Historical rankings of Presidents of the United States

    General findings

    George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Franklin D. Roosevelt are consistently ranked at the top of the lists. Often ranked just below those three are Presidents Thomas Jefferson and Theodore Roosevelt. The remaining places in the top 10 are often rounded out by Harry S. Truman, Woodrow Wilson, Dwight Eisenhower, and Andrew Jackson.

    "After Lincoln, the academics rated George Washington, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Theodore Roosevelt and Harry Truman as the best leaders overall. The same five received top spots in the 2000 survey, although Washington and Franklin D. Roosevelt swapped spots this year."




    Lincoln Ranked Best President By Historians



    WASHINGTON — Just days after the nation honored the 200th anniversary of his birth, 65 historians ranked Abraham Lincoln as the nation's best president.

    Former President George W. Bush, who left office last month, was ranked 36th out of the 42 men who had been chief executive by the end of 2008, according to a survey conducted by the cable channel C-SPAN.

    Bush scored lowest in international relations, where he was ranked 41st, and in economic management, where he was ranked 40th. His highest ranking, 24th, was in the category of pursuing equal justice for all. He was ranked 25th in crisis leadership and vision and agenda setting.

    In contrast, Lincoln was ranked in the top three in each of the 10 categories evaluated by participants.

    In C-SPAN's only other ranking of presidents, in 2000, former President Bill Clinton jumped six spots from No. 21 to 15. Other recent presidents moved positions as well: Ronald Reagan advanced from No. 11 to 10, George H.W. Bush rose from No. 20 to 18 and Jimmy Carter fell from No. 22 to 25.

    This movement illustrates that presidential reputations are influenced by present-day concerns, said survey adviser and participant Edna Medford.

    "Today's concerns shape our views of the past, be it in the area of foreign policy, managing the economy or human rights," Medford said in a statement.

    After Lincoln, the academics rated George Washington, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Theodore Roosevelt and Harry Truman as the best leaders overall. The same five received top spots in the 2000 survey, although Washington and Franklin D. Roosevelt swapped spots this year.

    lol!

    When I was a young kid I had a book about the worlds greatest scientists. It had a little chapter about Newton, Einstein, Archimedes, Edison and George Washington Carver. I remember reading the Carver chapter and thinking, peanut butter? The man is a great scientist for inventing peanut butter?

    Something is wrong with this country. Bad wrong.
     
  8. Shows just how screwed up these teachers are, 2 of the three deserved to be shot in the head for treason against the United States.

    We continue to suffer the consequences of their treasonous like misuse of power even to this day.

    Let's just hope "the (nappy headed) One" fades into obscurity and derision as deserved.
     
  9. Racist piece of shit like you need to be shot in the head
