Obama: Worst President In U.S. History?
Obama: Worst President In U.S. History?

<p>Bush was a <em>horrible</em> president. At the time, I thought he was the worst president in American history.</p>
<p>But Obama has made a lot of firsts himself &hellip;</p>
<p>For example, Obama:</p>
<ul>
<li>Has prosecuted more whistleblowers than <a data-mce-="" href="http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2012/04/obama-has-prosecuted-more-whistleblowers-than-all-other-presidents-combined.html">all other presidents combined</a></li>
</ul>
<ul>
<li>Sentenced whistleblowers to <a data-mce-="" href="http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2015/05/obama-has-sentenced-whistleblowers-to-31-times-the-jail-time-of-all-prior-u-s-presidents-combined.html">31 times</a> the jail time of all prior u.s. presidents combined</li>
</ul>
<ul>
<li>Prosecuted fewer financial crimes than <a data-mce-="" href="http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2011/11/obama-prosecuting-fewer-financial-crimes-than-under-either-bush-presidency.html" title="fewer financial crimes than President Reagan, Clinton or either of the Bush presidents">President Reagan, Clinton or either of the Bush presidents</a>.&nbsp;&nbsp; (As bad as the Bush administration was, they at least prosecuted the heads of Enron, Worldcom and some other white collar crooks. In contrast, Obama <a data-mce-="" href="http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/03/30000-criminal-referrals-led-1000-felony-convictions-major-fraud-cases-sl-crisis-even-single-prosecution-today-even-though-2008-crisis-70-times-bigger.html" title="hasn’t prosecuted even one">hasn&rsquo;t prosecuted even <strong><em>one</em></strong></a> high-level Wall Street executive.)</li>
</ul>
<ul>
<li>Is the <a data-mce-="" href="http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/01/contrary-claims-openness-transparency-administration-secretive-closed-administration-ever.html">most secretive</a> president ever</li>
</ul>
<ul>
<li>Is <a data-mce-="" href="http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2015/05/obama-is-more-hostile-towards-the-press-than-any-president-in-history.html">more hostile to the press</a> than any president in history</li>
</ul>
<ul>
<li>Claims the power to strip Americans' liberty in a way that no other president has ever tried to claim ... and that even <a data-mce-="" href="http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2013/02/daniel-ellsberg-obama-bush-cheney-rumsfeld-and-senators-voting-for-indefinite-detention-are-enemies-of-the-constitution.html" title="King George didn’t claim">King George of England didn&rsquo;t claim</a>. Indeed, Obama has rolled back some of our liberties <a data-mce-="" href="http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2012/10/the-same-secret-government-agency-which-spies-on-all-americans-also-decides-who-gets-assassinated-by-drones.html" title="rolled back liberties to the time of the enactment of the Magna Carta">to the time of the enactment of the Magna Carta in <em><strong>1215</strong></em></a></li>
</ul>
<ul>
<li>Has turned America into the <a data-mce-="" href="http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2012/12/americans-the-most-spied-on-people-in-world-history.html" title="most spied upon nation in world history">most spied upon nation in world history</a> (and see <a data-mce-="" href="http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2016/05/much-liberty-americans-left.html">this</a> and <a data-mce-="" href="http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2013/05/top-constitutional-experts-obama-is-worse-than-nixon.html">this</a>)</li>
</ul>
<ul>
<li>Has arguably <a data-mce-="" href="http://www.weeklystandard.com/gates-obama-has-centralized-power-more-than-any-other-president/article/2000642">centralized power more</a> than any other president</li>
</ul>
<ul>
<li>Has granted <a data-mce-="" href="http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2015/03/appears-bibi-far-popular-crazy-american-neocons-fellow-citizens-2.html">less pardons</a> than any president since Garfield, who served only <a data-mce-="" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_A._Garfield" target="_blank" title="200 days">200 days</a> as president before being assassinated in 1881</li>
</ul>
<ul>
<li>May be the only U.S. president in history who <a data-mce-="" href="http://www.realclearmarkets.com/articles/2016/02/01/barack_obamas_sad_record_on_economic_growth_101987.html">failed to deliver</a> a single year of at least 3% economic growth (when adjusted for inflation)</li>
</ul>
<p>In addition, Obama has presided over:</p>
<ul>
<li>The <a data-mce-="" href="http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2015/01/poll-people-world-blame-bad-government-policy-runaway-inequality.html">greatest inequality</a> of any president</li>
</ul>
<ul>
<li>The first time in its history that America is viewed as the <a data-mce-="" href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/01/02/greatest-threat-world-peace-country_n_4531824.html">world's greatest threat</a> by the <a data-mce-="" href="http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2015/08/americans-dont-know-that-the-rest-of-the-world-views-u-s-as-biggest-danger-rogue-state.html">people of the world</a></li>
</ul>
<ul>
<li><a data-mce-="" href="https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2015/01/07/the-story-behind-obama-and-the-national-debt-in-7-charts/">One of the largest net changes in debt</a> in American history</li>
</ul>
<ul>
<li>Perhaps the <a data-mce-="" href="http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2016/05/u-s-government-corrupt-ever.html">most corrupt</a> government ever in the U.S.</li>
</ul>
<p>And as the New York Times notes this week, Obama has <a data-mce-="" href="http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/15/us/politics/obama-as-wartime-president-has-wrestled-with-protecting-nation-and-troops.html?smprod=nytcore-iphone&amp;smid=nytcore-iphone-share&amp;_r=0">been at war longer</a> than any president in history.</p>
