If you watched MSNBC"s "The Daily Rundown" Monday, you might have been shocked to hear a panel of liberal journalists say some uncomplimentary things about Barack Obama's presidency.

Barack Obama was named the worst president since World War II, according to a survey of the American people who were asked to rate the nation's chief executives over the past 69 years.
