Your memory of American political history seens to go no further back than the end of 2008, and flawed at that. Do you remember the disastrous economy Obama inherited from the Republicans? Do you remember the pact a group of Republican congressmen agreed upon to block all Obama initiatives and assure a one term presidency? .The aggregate consensus of some real political historians have tentatively ranked Obama 14th best president. That’s 3 spots ahead of Reagan at 17th; 8 ahead of GHW Bush at 22nd; tied with LBJ; and of course way ahead of G. Bush at 34th spot. Warren Harding ranked the worst and Abe Lincoln the best. .I don’t think you’re so much a student of history as a follower of an ideology.
