San Diego Charges

If you're an admirer of Barack Obama, you might want to avoid this editorial from the San Diego Union-Tribune, which suggests that Obama is the worst president in American history. A taste:

He railed against the heavy spending and big deficits of his predecessor, but blithely backed budgets that had triple the deficits ever seen in American history.

He promised a smart, sweeping overhaul of the U.S. health care system, but ended up giving us a Byzantine mess promoted to the public with myths: that offering subsidized care to tens of millions of people would save money; that people would keep their own doctors; that access to care wouldn’t change; and that rationing would never happen.
And this, my personal favorite:
He denounced his predecessor for permitting harsh interrogation tactics with suspected terrorists, but once in office somehow concluded that a better, more moral approach would just be to use drones to assassinate such suspects without getting any information from them.
Well, that's how Nobel laureates roll. There's more, a lot more at the link. And don't forget to read the outrageously outraged comments that follow.

And yet somehow someway, it's highly likely that this smug ass gets re-elected. To quote Yakov Smirnoff, "What a country!"
