Obama Rates Himself in Top 4 Presidents of All Time

                                                         
                         President Barack Obama sat for an extensive interview with CBS’s “60 Minutes” though it appears the portion of the interview actually broadcast on TV left out a statement where Obama essentially declared himself the fourth best president in terms of his accomplishments.
The statement was only made available online as part of the full interview on “60 Minutes Overtime.”
According to a transcript posted on the “60 Minutes” website, Obama said he would hold his accomplishments so far as president against those of Lyndon B. Johnson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln.
“I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president — with the possible exceptions of Johnson, F.D.R., and Lincoln — just in terms of what we’ve gotten done in modern history,” Obama told CBS’s Steve Kroft.

Wow!  President Obama, the "anointed one",  has now placed himself in the top four of all Presidents in our entire history!


Let's see:  Our first President, the Father of Our Country, kept a rag-tag army together for seven years, while most of that time they were not being fed, clothed or even paid!  He went on to defeat a British Army 20 times the size of Washington's troops!  After being elected President, Washington set the moral standards for President, served honorably, and after two terms in office, stepped down from office, though he remained the most popular man in America!


And Obama considers himself better than Thomas Jefferson, who wrote the Declaration of Independence, thus codifying our personal rights, and, while President, completely wiped our our national debt.


Obama says he's better than James Madison who wrote our Constitution; yes, the very Constitution that protected Obama as he stood in Harvard Square in 1991 and "damned Americans", even as he attended that University on full minority scholarship.


Barack Obama places himself above Teddy Roosevelt who cleaned up political corruption in New York and Chicago, put in place the food safety laws that still protect us today, broke the back of the Robber Barons and put millions of acres of federal land into our National Park system.


Finally, Barack Obama considers himself superior to President Ronald Reagan who inherited from Jimmy Carter, an inflation rate of 20 percent, high unemployment and mortgage interest rates of 18 percent!  Reagan was able to squeeze inflation rates down to 4 percent, created 30 million jobs and put in place business incentives that created Walmart, Microsoft, Apple Computer and a hundred other businesses that pay billions in taxes to the U.S. Treasury even today!   Within an hour of Reagan's inauguration Iran terrorists released hundreds of American hostages when Reagan warned them that , on his first day in office,  he'd level Iran if the hostages were not released.  Finally, Reagan restored American pride and American power during his Presidency, faced down the Soviets, brought down the Berlin Wall and ended the Cold War!


Obama's accomplishments?  During his first year in office he flew all over the world, apologizing for America, praising the behavior of the Muslim world while saying America was not exceptional, just another nation like everyone else.  In three short years Obama ran up more debt than all other Presidents in our history combined.  He spent a trillion dollars on pork barrel stimulus and rammed Obamacare down our throats when 70 percent of us said we didn't want it.  The Congressional Budget Office says Obamacare will add another 10 trillion dollars to our national debt over the next nine years!


How big must one's ego be to write off the majestic accomplishments of our greatest Presidents and declare himself among the greatest of all time!


Sad, Damned Sad.

How do you get from 'legislative and policy achievements' to comparing him with Washington's military achievements? Are you intentionally ignorant or naturally dense?

To the liberal maniac; I have to read your crap on Yahoo but not here....you're outta here! If you can't argue rationally and civilly go over to the Huffington Post to spout your hate.

Anon: Pardon me, but you are one really stupid liberal....read the whole blog again; if you can't see leadership and courage and financial sanity and wondrous foresight displayed by far greater Presidents than Obama, you are indeed lost.

I'm leaving your comments on here simply so folks can read them and get a good laugh.
