  1. Who is the worse president, Bush or Obama?

    (This poll does not really quantify who is the "worse" president... it more so states who ET favors. Of course traders would traditionally support Republicans for tax purposes (capital gains)... should be capital losses on ET! :p)
  2. Bush:




  3. For Obama to be worse then Bush a few things needs to happen

    1.The worst terrorist attack in the country's history has to happen under Obamas presidency

    2.Obama needs to attack a sovereign nation that did not attack us and was no threat to us resulting in the needless deaths of 4,000 Americans,the injuries of over 20,000 Americans(arms and legs blown off,skin melted off etc)and the death and injuries of over 100,000 innocent civilian lives

    3.Spend more money then every other president combined

    4.A COMBINATION OF ALL OF THE ABOVE.Obama has to fuck up even more then that but thats a start.When all that happens under Obama then we can start serious discussions about who was worse
  4. Most bad Presidents are considered bad due to fucking up on foreign policy(Iraq),national security(9-11), or the economy,I cant think of any President that fucked up on all 3 like Bush did
  5. Lucrum


    Looks like number three is practically a given.
  6. Monty, why are your Obama polls from Mar and April?
  7. 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.
  8. A 2006 Siena College poll of 744 professors reported the following results:[6]

    "George W. Bush has just finished five years as President. If today were the last day of his presidency, how would you rank him? The responses were: Great: 2%; Near Great: 5%; Average: 11%; Below Average: 24%; Failure: 58%."

    "In your judgment, do you think he has a realistic chance of improving his rating?” Two-thirds (67%) responded no; less than a quarter (23%) responded yes; and 10% chose no opinion or not applicable."

    Thomas Kelly, professor emeritus of American studies at Siena College, said: "President Bush would seem to have small hope for high marks from the current generation of practicing historians and political scientists.
  9. Find a newer post and post it.
