My comments precede the story below:
Really? the author doesn't think Bill Clinton already beat out Jimmy Carter for worst president ever?
I don't even remember Ford (was it Gerald or Howard...?). What did he do? Was he even president or just a vice president? I can't remember.
As Thomas Jefferson said, "Wars and contentions indeed fill the pages of history with more matter. But more blest is that nation whose silent course of happiness furnishes nothing for history to say. This is what I ambition for my own country." --Thomas Jefferson to Comte Diodati, 1807
Maybe Ford wasn't that bad if I can't even remember him? Maybe I was too young.
I remember Clinton. Like remembering what is like to step on a 10 penny nail sticking out of a board, the nail going right through your show into your foot. Some memories you wish would fade away, but they have been so powerfully burned into your psyche they will last forever.
Jefferson also said, "Peace is our most important interest, and a recovery from debt." --Thomas Jefferson to William Short, 1801
Odamna certainly isn't a Jeffersonian, Constitutional "scholar" (cough, cough) that he is notwithstanding.
Hopefully the memory we have will be when justice is served with a conviction for treason ended with a rope--after a good 20 years at the rock pile. He's so arrogant though, he prob. thinks he can pay off HIS debt to society by signing autographs.
However, B-HO really cannot be called our worst president, for he is not president. He is usurper, a foreign dictator (that's why he cannot be impeached; he can only be removed by force).
May God remove the thorn, but He only will once His people actually repent; for the pricks in our eyes and thorns in our side are first of all present because of our sins against God and our refusal to obey Him (thinking it more "humane" to reward criminals than to punish them as God commanded and thus forever put away wickedness from the land of the living); however, rather than remember this, we tend to think of ourselves as the poor victims. The martyr-complex, victim mentality is what keeps us in the pig stye. God's People wake up. Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is nigh... our refusal to repent keeps us in judgment and the Kingdom on the horizon, like an ever-cruel mirage.
GEORGE WILL ON PRES. OBAMA
*America has had some great presidents, many mediocre ones and a few bad ones. But we've never had one like Barack Obama. He's the first who thinks the job is beneath him.*
*He's the first who turns political give-and-take into a crisis by refusing to negotiate with Congress.*
*He's the first who thinks the way to more power is to inflict pain on ordinary people.*
*The move to barricade the World War II memorial reveals the mentality of a tin-pot dictator. The limited government shutdown did not need to affect the memorial because it is open 24 hours, without gates and often without guards.*
*But to turn public opinion in his favor, Obama's goons trucked in barricades to keep out World War II vets and other visitors. By one estimate, the barricades and workers cost $100,000.*
*The same punish-the-people attitude led to shutdowns of other parks and historic sites that get no federal funding.*
*"We've been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It's disgusting," a Park Service ranger told The Washington Times.*
*The ranger cited the order to close the parking lot at George Washington's home in Mount Vernon so visitors couldn't use it. The cheap trick captured the contrast between a revered president and the current one.*
*I've been saying for a while that there is no bottom to Obama. He's not just ruthless. He's without scruples and honor.*
*Now the shutdown has ended, it will bring only a temporary respite from the crisis atmosphere in Washington. When it comes to his countrymen, Obama always chooses conflict over cooperation.*
*Meanwhile, Jimmy Carter can rest easy. We have a new worst president.*
I had received another email, I can't seem to locate it, It said Obama was the 7th best president in US History.
#1 George Washington
#2 Thomas Jefferson
#3 Andrew Jackson
all the rest tied for 4th place
#5 Barak Obama
a few cartoons from the British press I also received in email:
