How does Lincoln or Teddy Roosevelt rank against Obama?? How does Bill Clinton rank against GW Bush?? This is a ridiculous comparison. Reagan had low ratings in office same as any sitting president. Even Nixon ranks higher now that he is dead and gone than he ever did while alive. I'm sure conservatives find something warm and fuzzy about this stat, but it means absolutely nothing!!

It means that the the Dead Reagan who didn't have the Obama MSM and millionaires and billionaires donating to his propaganda machine he could not have won on his record if anybody on the right could have emphasized that along WITH his cowardice at Benghazi.

Stupid, but way too fun to ignore (via the LA Times):

If presidential politics ever involved time travel, President Obama might be in a little trouble. If an election between Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama were held today, 58% would vote for Reagan over Obama, according to a survey of 1,000 Americans age 18 and older conducted by Kelton Research for the National Geographic Channel. Though when the field is narrowed to people ages 18-34 -- those either too young to have known Reagan as president or too young to remember much -- the gap shrinks...
