Obama is the 4th Best President?
CBS's 60 Minutes edited the part of Steve Kroft's interview with Obama where Obama alludes pretty strongly to being the fourth best president in American history........the part they cut is in the above link.
He flatters himself, of course......His exact words are "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."
Wait...JOHNSON is one of the TOP THREE presidents? ANDREW JOHNSON? Surely he can't mean LYNDON JOHNSON! (but he does) And FDR? YIKES!
Well, I'm glad Obama has such a high opinion of himself ! I guess I'm really less troubled about that (and less surprised about it), than I am that Sixty Minutes edited it out...(not that I'm surprised about that, either, of course.) Oh, I know..my liberal commenters will remind us that TV shows only have so much time per segment so they can't show everything (though we all know that) .....but wouldn't anybody think it's pretty big NEWS that a president rates himself so highly, particularly when he's so low in the opinion of the public?
