The worst post-WW2 US Presidents.


                       R├ęsultat de recherche d'images pour "past presidents"

According to a Quinnipiac University Poll, here are the USA's worst Presidents.

Chump
Obarmy
Tricky Dicky
Someone called Carter
George Bush
Clinton
Lydon Johnson
Ronny Reagan
Gerald Ford.

I'm not quite sure why Chump is top of this list. He's only served one year so far, and who knows, he and Fat Boy might end-up as great 'peacemakers'.

Obarmy in second place comes as no surprise. The good people of the US feel that they've done their bit for race relations, and can now forget about such things for the foreseeable future.

Tricky Dicky needs no comment.

Carter. Didn't he grow peanuts?

Bush, together with Blair, should be in prison.

Clinton is still trying to get the stains out; I believe his wife is carrying the baton.

Johnson. A friend of mine was part of a small team who operated on Lyndon in Oct' 1965. My friend has now given up the knife, and is a priest in London (why?).

Ronny was good fun; always amusing to have a bit-part actor in the oval office, and Nancy was cute.

Ford. Something to do with cars maybe? Not sure.


Positions of power tend to attract those who should never be allowed to hold it. It's the same the world over.

  1. Obarma took the US into 5 new wars (Wikipedia list of wars involving US). Donald, zero new wars so far. I don't think the idea of starting a war interests him that much. He's happy just to drop a Moab on a mountain or say mines bigger than yours. If Clinton had got in I suspect there'd be a new war involving the US by now. Maybe even a couple.

    1. It seems a tad previous, to me, to vote him the worst ever. I'm not 100% au fait with his achievements, but the US economy seems to be improving. And if he can make peace with Fat Boy.....

    2. You mean Rocket Man!..not Fat Boy! I wasn't holding my breath. If he fired one of his missiles, towards the US, NK was goner and I suspect he knew it!

  2. Donald "Trumps" the lot of them in my opinion.

    1. You can't be alone, hence his being at No 1.

  3. Wasn't it Carter's brother who grew peanuts? A moot point perhaps, but in our state of Queensland we had a very corrupt Premier who was also a peanut farmer known as Joh Bjelke Petersen. Much to Australia's embarrassment, one of our Prime Ministers when Johnson visited Australia in the time of the Vietnam war, raised his fist and said, all the way with LBJ. Many protesters thought otherwise. God save those illogical and impractical protestors. I love them for their passion and ideals. You did not say which President Bush, but that is another moot point.

    1. George W Bush; The warmonger.

      Is it the weather in Qld that drives them all crazy?

    1. I thought this was amusing.

    2. I agree, SOAC. Still, you have to hand it to Cro that he isn't afraid of making occasionally outrageous observations when it comes to politics, both at home and overseas.

      And that, to some extent, is indeed amusing, Cro; even when you call me a stupid leftie because I dare cast doubt over some of your reflections.

      What I want to know a) what were the criteria to qualify as "worst" and b), considering the number on the roll call, how many Presidents post WW2 does that leave? And who came out tops? No, don't answer that. Everyone knows who comes out tops.

      Lastly, what's the commissioning University's demographic? Don't say I don't keep you on your toes (mentally).

    4. Isn't The Daily Mail a tabloid newspaper? From Wikipedia: "widely criticized for its unreliability, as well as printing sensationalist and inaccurate scare stories of science and medical research".

    5. It is, Jennifer, it is. Also known as The Daily Fail. You know the fail that'll never disappoint provided your expectations are rock bottom.

      Another one, though unfortunately it doesn't rhyme, The Daily HATE. That's what they give their reader, a subject to hate. Without fail. A hate for some possibly more nourishing than bread, good Christians that they are. A more benign, invoking pity, The Daily Wail. Indeed.

      To put it bluntly, if you asked me to read THAT Daily, even only once a year, you might as well ask me to pick up a stranger's snot with my bare fingers.

    6. The Mail is simply reporting on a poll carried out by Quinnipiac University; I doubt if they've altered the findings. Anyway; what's all the fuss?

  5. I really admire Obama and I really dislike the Daily Mail which is not allowed in this house since it printed a whole lot of lies about me, when (as a public servant) I could not reply to. And has for the horror that is Trump... Well Cro it takes all sorts (and I still like and read your blog!)

    1. The Mail is a strange paper. As you know it's the most popular paper in the UK (by far); read by people of all political persuasions. Most of their reporting is OK, but you certainly have to sort through the rubbish. If they maligned you, why didn't you sue them?

  6. I welcome criticisms from people outside of the U.S. Sometimes they amuse, sometimes I agree, sometimes it burns. And Trump? He lost me at "bigger", haha

    1. This criticism came from INSIDE the US; my take on their findings is just for fun.
