Obama Brags He’s No. 4 Best President – Geo Washington Not One of the 3: 60 Minutes Edits It Out

Barack Obama’s chat with Steve Kroft on 60 Minutes was a tad more interesting than you and I would know. Obama ranked himself the Fourth Best President in our History behind LBJ, FDR and Abraham Lincoln. And he includes his Foreign Policy “accomplishments.” George Washington was nowhere on Obama’s radar. It gets better. 60 Minutes left the comment out of the segments they aired on the show. You had to tune-in to their online after-the-show-show to see it. See the video below.

KROFT: Tell me, what do you consider your major accomplishments? If this is your last speech. What have you accomplished?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, we’re not done yet. I’ve got five more years of stuff to do. But not only saving this country from a great depression. Not only saving the auto industry. But putting in place a system in which we’re gonna start lowering health care costs and you’re never gonna go bankrupt because you get sick or somebody in your family gets sick. Making sure that we have reformed the financial system, so we never again have taxpayer-funded bailouts, and the system is more stable and secure. Making sure that we’ve got millions of kids out here who are able to go to college because we’ve expanded student loans and made college more affordable. Ending Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Decimating al Qaeda, including Bin Laden being taken off the field. Restoring America’s respect around the world.

The issue here is not gonna be a list of accomplishments. As you said yourself, Steve, you know, I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president — with the possible exceptions of Johnson, F.D.R., and Lincoln — just in terms of what we’ve gotten done in modern history. But, you know, but when it comes to the economy, we’ve got a lot more work to do. And we’re gonna keep on at it.

No matter how you think about this, who besides this arrogant, narcissistic ‘Won’ would put Lyndon Baines Johnson before George Washington?

  • Gee, ain’t it hard to be humble? But the comparisons could be apt. LBJ was a corrupt arm-twister, FDR had an administration packed similarly with Marxists, and Lincoln decided he had the unconstitutional authority to do away with habeas corpus.

  • Didn’t Obama forget the 0 after 4? I would say even 40th might be too high.

  • I guess it really depends upon what your goals are. If you’re just interested in expanding the power of the State, Obama may have ranked himself about right.

  • gagwithspoon – give us a friggin’ break, how disgusting and delusional can any one get. Obama is off in never never land. I would have had to laugh when I heard that. He thinks he’s the sh%$#@. Obama is full of it and himself – what a bragging prick. I’m sure Michelle is proud right about now. She can have him – America doesn’t want or need him.

    I am especially disgusted with that “Musolinni pose”. What arrogance that is only second to his stupidity.
