image Well he was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize just days into his presidency so it some twisted way I guess this makes sense.

Or it’s a sign of our deteriorating academia.  It’s no secret that most professors are liberal, so when a survey of “scholars” came out with their rating, they had President Barack Obama as #15, ahead of President Ronald Reagan (#18) but behind President Bill Clinton (#13).  President Franklin D. Roosevelt earned the top spot once again.

Where Obama is rated and where Reagan is rated shows this is a completely bogus poll.  What has he actually done?  What makes him so great?  Oh, he’s smart, sure he’s book smart, but he lacks leadership ability.  How exactly does President Reagan fall behind President “I can’t make a decision” Obama and President “I feel your pain” Clinton?  President Reagan’s policies helped to end the Cold War and the breakup of the Soviet Union.  President Reagan’s economic policies led the United States to economic prosperity.  President Clinton I can certainly see being ahead of President Obama

Obama could lead his way out of a paper bag and nothing he has tried to date has worked.  But yet he’s the 15th best, and this survey is mostly based on accomplishments.

It must be his speeches and ability to give Chris Matthews thrills up his leg.

  1. Your comment that “Obama could [not] lead his way out of a paper bag and nothing he has tried to date has worked” belies any sense of objectivity on your part. Sigh.

      1. Hi Shane,

        Well, I’d argue the stimulus plan has worked. Sure it was flawed (I’d say it should have been bigger) and there is legitimate debate regarding how much it’s worked. But to flat out claim it was a total failure (which I recognize you didn’t say explicitly) isn’t fair. It’s too early to say on the financial reform and health care laws, but again it’s not fair to say they haven’t worked. As far as leading, he helped lead the health care bill through a deeply divided Congress. Love or hate the law, it makes him a consequential president and is probably a major reason he scored where he did in the poll. He’s also leading on a number of other issues and he continues to do so despite the fact that he keeps taking hits from those on both the left and right who apparently abhor any attempt to work with the other side.

        In any event, just as many liberals couldn’t find a good thing to say about Bush (I admit I was guilty at times), it’s unfortunate that many conservatives have the same flaw with Obama. It’s hard for me to take seriously people who can’t find anything good to say about their opponents. It demonstrates an overly narrow-mind. I’m not accusing you of that generally, but I think it comes across that way in this post.
