Is Obama the Worst President Ever?

Yeah, it's kind of looking like it. At least, in the modern era.

Thanks to Tom Elia for the chart. I added a couple of labels so that it would be easier to compare George W. Bush, labeled the "worst President ever" by many on the Left, with Barrack Obama, thought to be America's salvation by many of those same people.

And, to be fair, the recession Obama inherited is the worst one when using the measure of relative unemployment (relative because other recession were worse in absolute unemployment). But his recovery is also either the worst or tied for first place.
