Obama rated 15th best President!

Barack Obama has been ranked as the 15th best U.S. President, just below Bill Clinton but ahead of Ronald Reagan, in a new poll of leading presidential scholars.

The Siena College poll, which surveyed 238 presidential scholars at U.S. colleges and universities, rated Mr. Obama two places below Mr. Clinton, who was 13th best, and three better than Reagan, who is ranked as the 18th best.
If this doesn't make you mad and remind you of how out of touch acadamia is.

Yes they're fawning over an American President who said something as stupid as this.
Look, it's an all volunteer force," Obama complained. "Nobody made these guys go to war. They had to have known and accepted the risks. Now they whine about bearing the costs of their choice? It doesn't compute.." "I thought these were people who were proud to sacrifice for their country, "Obama continued "I wasn't asking for blood, just money. With the country facing the worst financial crisis in its history, I'd have thought that the patriotic thing to do would be to try to help reduce the nation's deficit.. I guess I underestimated the selfishness of some of my fellow Americans.
Yeah, he actually suggested that soldiers be required to pay for their own battle injuries.

  2. Yeah, I just looked at Snopes (which I distrust becasue it's run by a bunch of Liberals), but I believe them when they say that what I've extracted from an email is mostly fiction based on a comedy routine. But he did propose to have disabled vetereans have their own insurance companies pay for their injuries to save the government umpteen million dollars. You can find the information. I believe he might be the 15th worst president of all time was my point.
