“60 Minutes” Edits Out Obama Claiming He’s the 4th Best President in History (Video)

You have got to be kidding…
After destroying the American economy, tripling the national deficit, blowing a trillion dollars on a failed stimulus plan and nearly doubling the unemployment rate, Barack Obama told “60 Minutes” last week that he considered himself the 4th best president in US history.
Unbelievable.
(Is this guy out to lunch or what?)

Via NewsBusters:

But there’s more— “60 Minutes” edited the arrogant comment out of their show.

The AP reported, via Free Republic:

President Barack Obama sat for an extensive interview with CBS’s “60 Minutes” last week, though it appears the portion of the interview actually broadcast on TV left out a statement where Obama essentially declared himself the fourth best president in terms of his accomplishments.

The statement was only made available online as part of the full interview on “60 Minutes Overtime.”

According to a transcript posted on the “60 Minutes” website, Obama said he would hold his accomplishments so far as president against those of Lyndon B. Johnson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln.

“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,”

Of course, Obama forgot to mention Reagan.
Maybe because Reagan created 1.1 million jobs his third September in office and Obama created 103,000 jobs his third September in office.

    Theyedited it out to save it for a comedy show. It’s more laughable than almost anything else on TV, outside of MSDNC

  • Freddy

    CBS was announcing that there was going to be an historic Obama appearance last Sunday morning. Later in the day, they had downgraded their announcement to ‘was going to appear’.

    I wonder if that was after they decided to edit this part out?

    “60 Minutes” edited the arrogant comment out of their show.

    It’s never a good thing to allow a fellow team member to look stupid.

  • StrangernFiction

    Minor correction: Barky didn’t say he was the 4th best president, he said he was at worst the 4th best President.

    Clearly you are retarded. Obama snatched defeat from the jaws of victory in Iraq. Reagan destroyed the commies, Obama licked their feet. Maximum leader Obama bows to our enemies, Reagan smashed them. Reagan created millions of jobs. Obama destroyed them.

    Obviously you are retarded.

    Of course they did. CBS (representing the sycophantic MSM and Libtards in general) quickly realized the horrible slip of the tongue in that comment. Both they and The Anointed One are in total agreement that he IS totally 10000% THE GREATEST Prezzeedint that ever was and ever will be, socialist-world without end, amen.

    Will the ushers now please pass the offering plates to take up the 2012 campaign collection (only folding money and/or checks allowed).
