There were a few before him but I have to go with his Holiness Reagan as it was with him that most of this countries fiscal, labor & policy problems began you can believe that or not but MO. :down:

I would have to say that OBAMA is by far the WORST president I've ever had the displeasure of experiencing. This guy is a *censored* worthless piece of *censored* who has done nothing but ruin this country.



But how do you really feel about him? :D :lol:

I was pretty young, but I remember the Reagan election. I was real young during Carter's admin too, but I remember this: My dad's job and everyone's in the neighborhood was on the line during Carter. By the end of Reagan's administration, everyone was making money hand over fist. Say what you will about Reagan, facts are facts. Alot of the policies he put in place went on to elevate Clinton to sainthood. :roll:

I think almost everyone (Dem or Rep) would say Reagan was the best of our lifetime (Kennedy as well for his b@lls of steel and unyielding fortitude to get shyt done come hell or high water). Reagan was the "man" in almost all the same respects his election was an overwhelming landslide and his power and ability to get things done was incredibly powerful (one small example... "Tear down this *censored* wall NOW!"... 1 week later walls are being torn apart) :lol:

Kennedy... "GTFO of this hemishpere because I will *censored* your shyt up"! (1 week later... boats are running back to Russia).

These are examples of getting shyt done on a global scale WITHOUT killing our boys, WITHOUT costing us Trillions.

At the same time Reagan clearly resolved the energy crisis from Carter, everyone was making money hand over fist. at the same time Kennedy was putting people on the freeekin moon. These are 2 presidents that are very hard to deny were the best of the best this country has ever seen. Obama cant even get a lousy local law changed nevermind doing things the likes of these two giants! We need to find greatness and leadership again like a Kennedy or a Reagan and I really dont care at this point if he/she is Dem or Rep.... just let me see greatness like this one more time please!!!!

There have been so many bad ones that it used to be hard to choose, but President Obama is working hard at making all the rest look really good by comparison.

All real rights are (or stem from) property rights. Since civil rights (as established and defined by government) violate property rights, they are not (and literally can not be) rights at all. That said, only government can (and has, at all levels, beginning with the very Constitution itself and its violation of the unalienable rights of blacks) institutionalize laws that violate the unalienable rights of man.

The economy was squeezed under Reagan. Bush #1 continued where Reagan left off. Remember the saying "No More Reaganomics"? We got rid of Bush #1 after 4 years. Then 8 great years with Clinton. The republicans tried so hard to get him impeached, but couldn't. The economy was good. People could care less what Clinton did behind closed doors. Then Bush #2. I'd have to say he was the worse. Or should I say; the worse happened under his watch. I do believe Bush #2 was just a puppet, and picked up where his old man left off. I know most everything has doubled/tripled in cost due to the Bush #2 years. Obama had NOTHING to work with when he became president. I do give him credit for stabilizing the country. What I don't like about Obama is all the free give-a-way programs. And also the attacks on our second amendment rights. He should be standing up for our rights. Yet, something does need to be done, as these wacko's continue mass shootings. Everything is out of control. I may never vote again.

Hi Freddy, I still believe Bush #2 to be the worst. His father, as well as Reagan are next worst. Yes, Lyndon & Nixon were crooks. But the three I mentioned as being the worse are the ones who brought this country to it's knees. Reagan started it, and Bush #2 put the frosting on the cake. Obama stopped the downward spiral of this country. He is no where near as corrupt as Reagan, and the Bushes. Big corporations were still booming during Reagan years, so most didn't see what was going on. If you were the private business, you felt the pinch. The problem with Obama is he's catering to the leaches. What about the middle class working person? What about our second amendment rights? Yes, you can change your mind. Ones no better than the other. Take your pick..........

I am amazed at how there are two completely different, by a wide margin , views or opinions .
Yes, the Bushes sucked but only cause theyleaned too far toward the center.

Johnson was dragged kicking and screaming to sign the civil rights act. Kennedy voted against it three times! :shh: Those who were intended to help are worse off then before they started.
