HuffPo: Obama "Worst President Since Herbert Hover"

Ok, this isn't a political blog, but the news from Massachusetts is pretty big. I was scanning the Huffington Post to see how the left was taking it. Two articles caught my eye. In one, a columnist declared Obama to be the worst President since Herbert Hover. Ouch. Another, by Lynn Forester de Rothschild did a good job capturing my personal view of Obama (whom I voted for, btw). You can read it here.

I'll just add that we independents out number Democrats and Republicans. "No Party" is the biggest party in the country. When political leaders go to the fringes of their parties for inspiration, they lose the independents and will suffer the consequences. That's what you're seeing now, and I don't think it's over yet.

And, as Forrest Gump would say, that's all I have to say about that.

  2. Hi Magicjava! I just discovered your blog from a link over at Motl's. You are a good science teacher. Very good. I would suggest however to keep your politics out of the climate science. It muddies the discussion, hurts your credibility, etc.. Libertarianism may correlate with climate skepticism -- appears to --but not all skeptics are libertarians. Otherwise, keep up the good work. I shall return! 68 year old fan.
