  1. Obama approval 50 %.Reagan 43 % in April 82.Reagan hit a low of 35 % in 83

    Obamas numbers in current economic environment are great
  2. 377OHMS


    I can't even process that. It is not possible to mention Ronald Reagan and Barrack Obama in the same breath. To say that the comparison is apples and oranges is not doing any justice to the stark contrast between these men.

    Ronald Reagan harboured a deep abiding love for his country. Barrack Obama exhibits clear resentment towards the accomplishments of his country and would like it brought down a few notches. That someone would throw up some numbers trying to relate to us the relationship of these men to the citizens they lead is absurd. I question your rationality. I question your intellect. I question your ancestry.
  3. Rank of worst performing administrations by real, per capita, debt adjusted growth in GDP, since WWII, annualized:

    Bush I: -6.27% (that's a big minus sign, in case you missed it)
    Bush II: -4,03%
    Reagan: -3.25%
  4. 377OHMS


    Nope. You've got it all wrong. The worst recent presidents were:

    #1 Worst President: Barrack Obama
    #2 Worst President: Jimmy Carter
    #3 Worst President: Lyndon Johnson
    #4 Worst President: Bill Clinton

    Please try to keep your facts straight. You've got your numbers all messed up, must be liberal math.
  5. They both came into office with similar economic circumstances.

    Obama is doing better with unemployment , the stock market and approval ratings then Reagan

    Obama has kept the country safe and will provide most with health care coverage

    They both spent like drunken sailors so thats a wash.Reagan nearly tripled the national debt,even Obama wont do that

    Reagan didn't love the country,he loved the rich

  6. Presidential historians disagree

    G.Bush ranked 36th out of the 42 Presidents

    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.

    Rated worst overall were James Buchanan, Andrew Johnson, Franklin Pierce, William Henry Harrison and Warren G. Harding.

    The survey was conducted in December and January. Participants ranked each president on a scale of one, "not effective" to 10, "very effective," on a list of 10 leadership qualities including relations with Congress, public persuasion and moral authority.
  7. I'm pretty sure if they put Zombie Reagan on the ballot, he would have beaten McCain..
