I knew the parasite class had been growing in leaps and bounds since the LBJ years, but I was surprised that 44 percent is a constant:


The Pew Research Center asked Americans who they thought did the best job as president in their lifetime. The top pick: former President Barack Obama.

Obama was the choice of 44 percent of the respondents in the poll, which was published Wednesday. Bill Clinton came in second with 33 percent and Ronald Reagan was third with 32 percent. Although not yet even halfway through his first term, President Donald Trump got 19 percent to place him in fourth place, ahead of both Bushes, John F. Kennedy and Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

According to Pew, Obama got 20 percent at about the same point in his presidency.

The survey was conducted from June 5-12 and 2,002 people were asked to give both their first and second choices. It has an error margin of 2.6 points.

Obviously, when someone lived is key to who they think was the best president of their lifetime. For example, of those who were alive during the Kennedy administration, about a quarter chose JFK.

Millennials (born 1981 to 1996) were the most likely to choose Obama, with 62 percent naming him as their first or second choice. Reagan was the top pick for Generation X (1965 to 1980), baby boomers (1946 to 1964) and the silent generation (1928 to 1945).

Unsurprisingly, party identification was very closely tied to a person's answer. Obama was the first or second pick of 71 percent of Democrats but only 13 percent of Republicans.

Reagan was the clear favorite among Republicans with 57 percent (12 percent among Democrats). Trump was the second pick for Republicans at 40 percent. Only 3 percent of Democrats named Trump.

The Pew poll is an improvement over C-Span’s best ever president list. That one made me barf when they put Wilson at 11 and Obama at 12 on its BEST PRESIDENTS list:

1. Abraham Lincoln
2. Washington
3. FDR
4. Teddy Roosevelt
5. Eisenhower
6. Truman
7. Jefferson
8. Kennedy
9. Reagan
10. LBJ

Following at 11 and 12, respectively, were Woodrow Wilson and Obama.​

Irrespective of the criterions “. . . impeccably fair C-SPAN.” used can you imagine the type of person who would consider Obama a better president than James Madison?

The scary part is that presidential scholars look for positive qualities and policies when nothing good can be said about at least two presidents.


• Public Persuasion
• Crisis Leadership
• Economic Management
• Moral Authority
• International Relations
• Administrative Skills
• Relations with Congress
• Vision / Setting an Agenda
• Pursued Equal Justice For All
• Performance Within Context of Times

I’ve been getting emails from bewildered colleagues asking about a survey of presidential scholars that determined that Barack Obama is the 12th best president in the history of the United States, putting him near the top quartile of our presidents. How can this be? I, too, was mystified, especially given that I participated in the survey.

The survey was conducted by the impeccably fair C-SPAN. Few sources do their job like C-SPAN does. If you want truly unfiltered news, C-SPAN is unrivaled for its ability to simply place a camera in a room and let reality speak for itself.

When it comes to surveys of presidents, C-SPAN likewise has no peer. I remember the nauseating presidential surveys in the 1980s and 1990s. They were mere measurements of the liberalism of the academy — that is, liberal historians and liberal political scientists expressing their liberalism by their liberal rankings of presidents. It was a farce.​

Obama will certainly take the title of “Worst President” away from Wilson in a generation or two. As it stands now Woodrow Wilson remains the worst president ever because his policies have been governing the country for a century.

NOTE: Defeat in a war is not the only way for a people to lose their independence. No president before Wilson ever considered surrendering this country’s sovereignty. Wilson was the first. He not only considered it he set the U.S. on a path to the United Nations, global government, open-borders, and most of the problems destroying the country from within. I am not a big fan of Lincoln but he gets an attaboy for this on:

From whence shall we expect the approach of danger? Shall some trans-Atlantic military giant step the earth and crush us at a blow? Never. All the armies of Europe and Asia...could not by force take a drink from the Ohio River or make a track on the Blue Ridge in the trial of a thousand years. No, if destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of free men we will live forever or die by suicide. Abraham Lincoln

On top of:

First World War.com - Primary Documents - Peace Without Victory, 22 January 1917

“Peace Without Victory” guarantees defeat because it allows a defeated enemy to regain strength and try again.

Wilson turned democracy into a mass movement that remains unidentified, and unchallenged to this day:

Making the World "Safe for Democracy": Woodrow Wilson Asks for War

Finally, “The world must be made safe for democracy” did more damage to individual liberties than did all of the other ideologies and slogans combined —— including Communism’s “Equal distribution of the wealth.”

Yeah, that survey is really worrying. Looks like you may be in the wrong country!

(side bar - as many as 10% of Trump supporters can read!?)

During your life time. The older the president, the less people can remember him. On that alone it makes the poll biased

What is a parasite president??

From Time: President Barack Obama is a parasite, officially.

Scientists have named a tiny flatworm after the commander-in-chief, insisting it’s an honor. Thomas Platt, a retired biology professor at Saint Mary’s College in Indiana, told the Associated Press he discovered the 2-inch parasite and named it Baracktrema obamai because it reminds him of the President—in a good way.

“It’s long. It’s thin. And it’s cool as hell,” he said Thursday. Platt added that Baracktrema obamai, which lives in turtles’ blood, are “phenomenally incredibly resilient organisms.”

The study about the new parasite was recently published in the Journal of Parasitology.


So if a parasite was named after Trump, would it be short, fat and uncool??

What is a parasite president??
To Clara007: I am glad you asked. Obama is the answer.

The Chicago sewer rat was the first full-blown parasite to become president. He came from parasites. He came by his political beliefs honestly. He was mentored and educated by parasites. He truly believes the government supports the private sector instead of the opposite. It is only natural that anyone who believes the garbage he preached must support parasites with tax dollars.

Listen to the sewer rat in the brief video and ask “What business did the Obama ever create other than more parasites.


Obama was a street hustling spiritual leader (community organizer) who got a lot help from tax dollars. Worse still, he made parasites proud of being parasites.

In time, once freeloaders like Obama in every society get a foot in the door they end up in charge. The most successful parasite that ever lived is no longer in office, yet his parasite policies like Obamacare are being enforced. Notice that Karl Marx formulated parasite ideology without ever getting his own hands on tax dollars, while Obama fed at the public trough from he day he was born.

Obama was the first parasite to openly preach transforming the private sector middle class into a government middle class. Transferring the nation’s wealth to tax dollar parasites began a long time ago. Obama completed the job of making educated professionals dependent upon tax dollars. The very people who were once dedicated to life and individual liberties for everyone now derive their incomes from tax dollars. Taking liberties away from non-parasites to enhance their own incomes is their first loyalty.

Incidentally, television parasites are not allowed to talk about their incomes paid with tax deductible advertising dollars.

Just to be clear on this. Everyone who is NOT necessary in maintaining a severely limited government yet derive the majority of their income from tax dollars is the definition of the parasite class.

Finally, parasites are equal opportunity parasites: They feed on necessary civil servants as well as feeding on tax dollars paid by society’s producers. Parasites do not constitute anywhere near a majority, but their institutions are the most influential exercising governing authority.
