The Worst President In History? Republicans Rebuke Obama
May 22, 2012 by Bryan Nash
According to Republicans, President Barack Obama should be regarded as one of the most memorable political figures in the history of the United States.
The White House recently tried to paint the President in a positive light by attempting to show how Obama has furthered initiatives brought forth by Franklin D. Roosevelt, Lyndon Johnson and Ronald Reagan.
Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie also believe the President has a place in the history books — just not a coveted place.
Rubio, who some people speculate will be the Republican Vice Presidential nominee, said in a speech delivered in South Carolina: “We have not seen such a divisive figure in modern American history as we have over the last three and half years.
“The president and his party’s view of America’s government and our lives is a failed one. It hasn’t worked. His ideas that sounded so good in the classrooms of Harvard and Yale haven’t really worked out well in the real world.”
During a speech delivered in Lexington, Ky., Christie remarked: “He is the most ill-prepared person to assume the presidency in my lifetime. This is a guy who literally is walking around in a dark room trying to find the light switch of leadership.”
