<<<<That is a very low bar you set. Compared to Bush the Lesser, Obama is far and away a better President in any measure I can think of.>>>
Not much of a thinker,apparently.
I think in genera the folks that are making this measurement just do not have a reasoning faculty that would allow them to consider the scope of the utter disaster things would be, if after 8 years of Obama being a total screw-up a huge economic disaster that had nothing to do with him would hit the country.
Of course we would have been so screwed, with a guy who acted in Benghazi so absurdly, if there was something like the 9/.11 attacks that would ahve happened due to no action of his, that the second disasterous reaction would have been small potatoes.
Bush ran through two absurd tragedies, neither having much to do with his actions, now he was not a particularly good President. But Obama, who faced nothing new going wrong, has been incompetent beyond belief.
A sheepdog would have been as successful as the President in getting us out of the doldrums, likely far more so.
Obama is terrible. He has a sense of priorities that can only be compared favorably to Michael Bloomberg and he is a divisive jerk to boot.
Other than that, he is OK for an arrogant creep.
