    Default Obama Ancestry

    Well, according to Ancestry.com, and CBS, Obama is a descendant of the first the first African slave bought to American. That's right, a slave named John Punch. Immigration must have changed the spelling of his name when he got here. So, Obama is all American. CBS and Ancestry say so. Take that Sheriff Joe! I'll bet before September he's
    related to Jefferson and the Kennedy family too.

    Even if he were related to Jefferson, it doesn't change the fact that he's a terrible president.

    I think Obama supporters bring this stuff up, to stir up the birthers, which in turn takes focus away from the fact that he's a terrible president who's accomplished absolutely nothing worthwhile.

    I don't use the term "birther" pejoratively, either.

    Kerb, I don't use the term "birther" pejoratively either. I was hoping my sarcasm in regards to this story would be self evident. I think this President is very likely the worst this nation has ever seen.

    I didn't take it that way. I just wanted to make sure people didn't think I was hating on birthers.

    Ever notice that when some folks don't have sound ideas to support whatever argument they are trying to make, the first thing they do is to attempt to cast the opposing side in a negative light by ridiculing them? I try not to do that. Sometimes unsuccessfully =P

    Edited to say: Case in point - isn't it shameful how Sheriff Joe's findings have been dismissed and ignored by the media. Anyone who doesn't have a popular opinion (or in this case, popular facts) is labeled a nutcase.

    I thought Carter was the worst, however Carter has been dethroned :p
    If it doesn't fit, FORCE it! If it breaks then it needed to be replaced anyway.

    The tie to slavery is through his white mother not his black father. But what difference does that make. Most black slaves sold to white salve trader by blacks. This is all historical fact the left isn't interested in. Like has been said before, he's still a terrible president and a socialist. You can't change a tigers stripes, you can only hide them for awhile.

    I ran this through Snopes and it did not turn up any thing no matter how I worded it. I think it is a load of BS.

    You birthers and haters are quite an amazing breed of mindless dweebs.

    Now to history.

    The worst president according to polls of historians was Buchanan. But he was largely a victim of circumstances. He was president up to the commencement of the Civil War, and so he gets the blame for being unable to deal with it or prevent it.

    Historical rankings of Presidents of the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Take a look at the listing and notice that George HW Bush, Billy Clinton, and Jimmy Carter are all side by side, very little difference.

    Then look down the list at your own Richard Milhous Nixon who is furthest to the bottom of the list than anyone else in modern times. That's who the worst was.

    Romney and Nixon have many things in common. They are both shameless liars. Ergo hopefully history will not again repeat itself.

    JohnD in Upstate NY, how do you like your Bloomberg in NYC? Quite a guy huh? He wants to take away your assault rifle. Which is fine with me; I don't own one of these. But I would never vote for Bloomberg for anything anyway. I think his mouth has sealed his fate and so now he will never be able to run for national office anywhere.
