Is Barack Obama the Worst and Most Incompetent President Ever?

September 1st, 2013 - 3:45 pm

Even if one is against intervention in Syria’s civil war, as many are, a rebuke to acting against the use of chemical warfare — when the president has said it is impermissible — could be the greatest harm to the United States in decades. It will embolden our enemies, and give Iran the green light to work harder and faster to obtain a working nuclear arsenal, since they will reach the conclusion that the word of an American president means little. The mullahs will say: If the United States cannot even act against a violation of the rules of international law and the use of chemical weapons, what do have to fear when the president says we cannot obtain a nuclear bomb?

The gamble Obama has taken by going to Congress is one that could easily fail. If he listens to a negative vote and packs it in, he will effectively have sabotaged a U.S. response to Assad that he previously said was necessary. As Sen. Joe Lieberman indicated on Fox News Sunday, America’s credibility and word, not to speak of its influence, will have been damaged possibly beyond repair. That is why he announced he would ask Graham and McCain to vote yes despite any reservations they may have about Obama’s seriousness.

In his announcement of a postponement of any attack, President Obama has acted in a way that I believe marks him as perhaps the worst American president, and certainly one of the most incompetent.  Those who argued during the campaign before his first term that he had achieved virtually nothing in the Senate, and was both inexperienced and not ready to assume the job of chief executive, have been vindicated. Barack Obama should never have been elected to his current job. We are now living through the results of his victory at the polls. I hope that our representatives vote “yes,” and the consequences of a “no” vote will not have to be contemplated.

The only "authority" Barrack Obama ever had was the authority given to him because of his race. The left knew this way back when. They found a malleable, self-centered, somewhat glib African American whom they groomed for years until the right moment came when they could get him elected president. He's simply an ideological robot whose parts are wearing out.

Actually the damage is already done. The U.S.' enemies are already emboldened, Obama's 5-years of negotiating with no results have already given Iran the green light to work harder and faster to obtain a working nuclear arsenal, and they've already reached the conclusion that the word of an American president means little (remember the Iranian elections of 2009? the so-called Green revolution? remember Obama's diffidence to the Iranian people?).

Pumping a half-dozen cruise missiles into the Syrian Desert won't do anything except cost the U.S. taxpayers billions of dollars. Ron, when you write about the Soviet and PRC realities, you are without peer. But on this topic you have not realized how much damage Obama's crew has already done.

People like me have definitely been vindicated. I was appalled that well meaning people were treating the top elected job in the United States similar to the president of one's high school class. Obama was obviously way over his head. He was ready to be no more than another Illinois state senator.

Worst, YES. Incompetent, NO. Obama knows exactly what he is doing. Jimmy Carter is still the most incompetent president.

I know hyperbole is nice, but honestly? Worse than Buchannan? Clinton? We are looking at all of American history, are we not?

I am trying to figure out why the title of this article is presented in the form of a question. I would have done it in the affirmative, with capital letters, and a few exclamation signs.

Of course he is the worst and most incompetent president ever.
He feels utter contempt for half the country (conservatives and people who believe in professional merit, economic responsibility and/or fiscal reality), and has many citizens preparing for catastrophe. We didn't need Syria to see this. When he was re-elected last year, sales of firearms, ammo and disaster preparedness supplies increased sharply. Obozo has no sense of self-dimension either. He really believes his sycophantic press. Some comments on this article seem to suggest that there will be a quiet transition to new leadership, either Hillary, or the corrupt Republicans. He's not going to quietly lounge in Hawaii somewhere. He's had a taste of power, and he's not going to exit quietly.

I like Hilary better because she is thorughly dishonest and thus more likely to compromise.

Isn't it amazing how now of her past scandals are even brought up? Do you imagine of she were a Republican she would be able to hold her head up?

Did anyone really expect anything different from our first Affirmative Action President? A community organizer, a rabble rouser at best, a state senator and u.s. senator who voted present most of the time. Never owned a business, never signed a payroll, never hired anyone, never fired anyone, never worked in the private sector, no military background, no nothing, a blank slate as his minions used to like to say. Now we know for sure that not only is his slate blank, it's also empty of any new ideas, any way to motivate our citizens, any method of negotiating with our enemies, any prospect of talking to our friends and allies. And we still have three years of this.
