A survey of 238 "presidential scholars" released Thursday ranked Barack Obama as one of the nations's best presidents ever.
According to the Siena College Research Institute, Obama is currently in the fifteenth position an amazing three spots AHEAD of Ronald Reagan.
Imagine that: a man that has been in the White House for less than eighteen months and hasn't accomplished anything is considered better than the president that reinvigorated America after the dreadful Jimmy Carter years while also ending the Cold War.
Speaking of Carter, these geniuses actually ranked him higher than George W. Bush.
The New York Daily News reported Thursday:
George W. Bush was no FDR, but Barack Obama could be.
That's the verdict of 238 of the nation's leading presidential scholars, who - for a fifth time - rated Franklin Delano Roosevelt the best president ever in the latest Siena College Research Institute poll.
In office for barely two years, Obama entered the survey in the 15th position - two spots behind Bill Clinton and three spots ahead of Ronald Reagan.
Yep. Clinton ranked higher than Reagan as well.
Actually, the details of the full rankings are even funnier.
For instance, although presiding over arguably the worst economic period in American history, FDR is ranked first in handling of the economy. First!
But to REALLY give you an idea of how biased and absurd these so-called presidential scholars are, they rated Obama ahead of Reagan in handling of the economy.
I kid you not. Obama was ranked seventeenth in this category, while Reagan, who started the nation's longest peacetime expansion in history, was ranked 21st.
Maybe even better, Obama was ranked tenth in ability to compromise.
Wouldn't you love to ask these geniuses to name some things Obama has compromised on since Inauguration Day?
For the record, Carter was ranked 32nd while George W. Bush came in close to the bottom at 39.
It really makes you wonder what color the sky is in the world these folks live.
