    It's close between Bush Jr & Obama. After all the bad decisions Obama has made I think he'll be the worst ever

    I can only conclude from my life time which I was born in 1949. I think OBAMA is the worst to date. I use to think Jimmy Carter was the worst but Obama has overtaken Jimmy. Prior to Jimmy Carter I thought Lynden Johnson was the worst. In my studies going back in history FDR was considered the worst in the 20th Century with Wilson starting the Progressive/Socialist party moving and FDR pushed even farther. Little known to most people is that Teddy was a totalitarian who wanted complete control as a dictator. Old ABE was in his time the most hated President of all time. Abe did not want to give up slavery but was force too other wise we would still have slavery in America.

    According to historians, Abraham Lincoln was the most hated president.... difficult to believe, but factual.

    The country was the most divided then. Don't you think that Obama is running him a close second for the same reason...and just might surpasse him!

    Yes, but not the same.
    Our country was already divided then. But it was Lincoln who did not want to divide the country. He wanted to unite it. Obama is doing his best to divide us.

    not at all difficult if you do not superimpose the mores and values of the 21st century on the 19th. the culture must be viewed within the framework of the culture and when one does that with the 1860s Lincoln doesn't do well due to the war, states rights being curtailed, cession, the death and maiming of young men, incarceration at Rock Island or Andersonville, burning of the south, controversy over slavery, starvation and Lincoln is responsible for not letting the south go in peace thus resulting in a war he though necessary to preserve the union: very possible.

    If the Civil War had been fought because of slavery, then it was a false war. Slavery in the South was becoming very unprofitable and would have been eliminated anyway. What the process would have been, we do not know. If the Southern states had not seceded, slavery would have gone away by itself as an economic issue; but the issue of states rights would have remained ... and it remains today.

    The Civil War was really a war of states rights; and unfortunately or fortunately (depending upon your point of view) the Federal Government won, thus establishing a stronger central federal government... exactly what our Founding Fathers feared. They wanted a loose union of states, relatively independent, but relying on the federal government only for the certain things specifically stated in the Constitution. The Constitution was not specific enough, and you can see what has happened in its modern interpretation... laws and mandates directly opposed to what the framers of the Constitution intended.

    Federal social programs such as Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Welfare, ACA, etc, etc, etc, would never have be passed by any Congress (no matter what party) or proposed by any president in the 18th or 19th or even early 20th century. Those programs would have been considered unconstitutional... and they still are.

    You can see by our national debt where violating the Constitution has gotten us.

    Having read over my reply, I never said that the Civil War was fought over the slave issue either. I did concentrate on the slave issue, but should have concentrated more on states' rights.

    Barack Obama is the most hated, rightfully so. There were some runner ups though:

    James Madison- fled the white house and hid when he heard the British were coming in the War of 1812

    Andrew Johnson- violated multiple laws and constitutional requirements in "punishing" the southern states; he is still the only president to actually be impeached

    Herbert Hoover- led the U.S. into the Great Depression and did little to help anyone

    Jimmy Carter- weakened the U.S. military and diplomatic leverage which aided the Soviets in the Cold War

    George W. Bush- poor leadership and too many compromises made him unpopular with everyone

    As for why Obama wins:

    Barrack Obama- divided the United States, has frequently lied to the American people, fought against the interests and will of the U.S. citizens, driven up the national debt more than any former president, weakened the U.S. military, passed a highly unpopular health care bill, increased diplomatic tensions with allied countries (especially Israel and South Korea), and has put his own personal interests above his position as president

    Andrew Johnson wan not the only president to be impeached. William Jefferson Clinton was also impeached. Richard Nixon would have been impeached, but resigned before he could be brought to trial.

    Nixon managed to avoid being impeached by resigning, and Clinton was acquitted by the U.S. senate meaning that he never faced justice for his perjury and obstruction to justice. Which means that Andrew Johnson is the only president to ever be successfully impeached.

    Impeachment means being brought to trial. Andrew Johnson and William Jefferson Clinton were both impeached.... the only two in American history. Clinton was convicted of perjury and lost his law license. Andrew Johnson was found innocent by one vote.

    "Impeachment means being brought to trial."
    Technically not as it applies to the United States:

    "Impeachment in the United States is an expressed power of the legislature that allows for formal charges against a civil officer of government for crimes committed in office. The actual trial on those charges, and subsequent removal of an official on conviction on those charges, is separate from the act of impeachment itself." Line 1 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

    "Andrew Johnson was found innocent by one vote."
    -Interesting, I never learned that. Amazing how the American education system can fail you sometimes.

    You are correct. However, once impeachment passes in a Congressional vote, then a trial must be conducted. We have come to interpret the word "impeachment" as meaning that the accusations were already approved by Congress to have significance enough to bring the accused to trial. Hence, impeachment means being brought to trial. It's just a matter of semantics.

    Most think that impeachment means being thrown out of office. They are wrong.

    The whole lineup of Presidents, for the entire past century, kinda beginning with TheFed and a bit later with Keynesian pseudo-economics, have served to pull the rug out from under Liberty with marxism. Vote2008 brought in an unknown alien as so-called President, who has managed to set aside the Constitution and institute redistribution by misusing all the powers of Force within this GOVERNment. Over half the voters foisted communism upon America and Americans, so clearly Obama is the worst and therefore the most hated. He should be arrested for Treason and face the ultimate penalty.

    Why All This Drama Over Obama?

    When he announced he was running for president, the secret service had to start guarding him about six months before they normally start guarding presidential candidates, because of all the death threats he was receiving. So the question is why is that? What had he done that was so bad that they had to start guarding him that early? Did he murder somebody, rape somebody, rob a bank, commit an act of terrorism?

    No, he didn't.

    All through the presidential campaign there were people protesting his candidacy, calling him a traitor, a socialist, a communist, a Muslim or an Arab, (which to their minds were all bad things) but none of this was true! But they still persisted in spewing their hatred toward him and were not amenable to reason or the truth.

    What had candidate Obama done that was so egregious that it engendered that kind of intense hatred and hostility toward him?

    When he became president the hatred and hostility didn't stop, it intensified!

    You had the so-called 'birthers' attempting with all of their might to de-legitimize his presidency saying that he couldn't be president because he wasn't born in the United States. No matter how much data was examined or presented to show he was born in the United States, (birth certificate, announcement of h...

    You had the so-called 'birthers' attempting with all of their might to de-legitimize his presidency saying that he couldn't be president because he wasn't born in the United States. No matter how much data was examined or presented to show he was born in the United States, (birth certificate, announcement of his birth in two papers at the time) was not good enough for these people. It was all faked! The truth could only be what they fervently and bitterly believed the truth to be! They wouldn't and probably still won’t accept anything less than what they believe to be true! Again, Why All This Drama Over Obama?

    What do they have against President Obama? What has he done to engender that kind of hostile scrutiny from them?

    Did Bill Clinton or George W. Bush have to prove they were born in the United States to be president?

    No they didn't.

    At many of the town hall meetings, angry protesters carried caricatures of the president as Adolf Hitler as well as other offensive racial images of him to show what a horrible person they 'think' he is! But what had President Obama done to make them view him as Hitler or as someone who was the same type of person as Hitler?

    Hitler killed millions of people, what had President Obama done that could be equated to what Hitler had done?

    Let me answer that: nothing!

    Then there was the healthcare scare. Obama is going to kill grandma!

    These people just won’t quit! They want to de-legitimize his presidency and get him out of office by any means necessary! It was just one thing after another all summer long. Again Why All This Drama Over Obama?

    As shocking as this may seem to some of you, there are some people in this country who just don’t want to see a black man be president of the United States. Or any none white person for that matter. But definitely not a black man. They say this is a white country and should be ruled or governed only by white people, preferably white men.

    To these people (including some in the congress) President Obama can do no good. He could walk on water, bring the dead back to life, wipe out world hunger, bring peace to the world and they’ll find a way to find something wrong with what he did. Because it’s not about what he did. It’s about what he is.

    Some people don’t know that their negative racial feelings are fueling their fear and hatred of President Obama and would be mortified to think that they harbored any such feelings.

    But, psychologically, when someone automatically experiences intense hatred, dread or other such emotions about someone they don’t know, it’s usually a sign that they have underlying subconscious feeling they aren't acknowledging.

    It’s like a phobia, where someone reacts to a fly as if it’s a grizzly bear about to attack them! Their reaction is out of proportion to the danger they’re actually in.

    A phobia is a conditioned response, a subconscious alarm system that says, when you see situation or person A, trigger emotional reaction B!

    People like this wouldn't know why they have such intense anger or hostility toward President Obama, but may unconsciously project it on to something else about him that would keep them from being aware of the true reasons for their intense dislike of him.

    So again, why do these protesters have such intense hostility and fear of President Obama, that appears to be out of all proportion to anything he’s actually done? Why All This Drama Over Obama?

    The republicans, Rush Limbaugh and others' stated agenda was to stop President Obama from being successful. Not to try to make the country better, to help people or to try to create more jobs, but to stop Obama!

    They don't give a damn about the country only about stopping Obama and they proved this by being against anything President Obama is for.


    If God created Adam and Eve because he wanted to be loved and feel loved. Then why would I call God to live and join with us now? There's not enough love for he/she to be among us right now...sadly, not for a long, long time!

    When my dad was drafted in the war, all my dad would listen to was: Pink Floyd and John Lennon. "I gotta get out of this place." My mom and dad never want me to step foot in the military and I never will. I can't kill innocent people, no one should, for any reason!

    I'm sorry....seriously, with all due respect; The list is way too long for exposition here. Just look at the condition of our Nation and how it has gotten exponentially worse since he became (p)resident. Our Country has changed for the worse in every way imaginable because of his policies. He has increased our Nationsl debt by 5 trillion dollars in four years. We are on track to add another trillion in debt for this fiscal year. In the last 70 days the interest on the debt went up 250 trillion dollars....faster than we can pay it back and we are headed for 20 trillion in debt which means that as a percentage GDP that our debt will soon surpass what we produce.

    he gave us the Federal Reserve, PROGRESSIVE income tax, and is the one that gave us the popular vote of Senators- which took away the states control over the federal government, and led to the disaster we are in now.

    He is also the frist president to round up American citizens and put them in camps, led to the rise of Hitler with his 14 point plan, was the first president to call for the abolition of our Constitution,
