Our best presidents had to struggle in their lives. Our worst presidents (Buchanan, Pierce, Harding) did not. Obama is one of the latter.
You haven't convinced me. The Ivy erducated Constitutional scholar, son of a mixed marriage and an absent father who became the first non-white President of this land "never had to struggle" in his "lazy," "charmed," and "privileged" life. And two years into his first term while he has apparently successfully (so far) negotiated the second worst economic crisis in our history, you've pronounced among the worst Presidents we've ever had. That's a pretty venomous fantasy, especially considering its freedom from anything like a factual basis.
And, it looks racist to more than just me.
