Obama one of our worst presidents

As the president finds himself mired in controversy, the deafening silence from the likes of Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, the elitist left-wing Hollywood crowd and other progressives is amazing. The great emancipator who promised us that he will clean up Washington and bring a new era to politics seems just that ... a promise.

As a Harvard Law School graduate, it seems Obama must have failed his American history class as he certainly has forgotten the words of the great Harry Truman: "The buck stops here." With Obama, it is "the buck is passed here" as he tries to blame everyone else for his mistakes.

The president has not had the courage to say "I'm sorry" for any of the controversies that have plagued his administration. Obama's claim to fame that he got Osama bin Laden is also questionable since we have been looking for bin Laden since George Bush was president, and it just so happened that we got him on Obama's watch. There is no doubt Obama will go down in history as one of our most incompetent presidents, even worse than Jimmy Carter.
