Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton Are the Most-Admired Man and Woman in America

Madeleine Morgenstern, The Blaze, December 29, 2014

President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton remain the most-admired man and woman in America, according to a Gallup survey.

Obama took the top spot for the seventh year in a row; Clinton won for the 13th year straight.

  • Fed Up

    The two WORST LIARS in the country are also supposed to be the Most Respected? Is the writer of this absurdity taking illegal drugs, I wonder.

    • Yancy Derringer

      Liars, yes, I was just going to say…

    • walt

      The other choices were Hitler and Squeaky Fromme.

      • David Ashton

        Mickey Mouse, King Kong and Pluto[democracy].

      • Not Politically Correct

        And both of them are White. Go figure.

    • Charles Martel

      Says a lot about the sorry state of our citizenry.

      • Rurik

        Says a lot about the citizens who will speak to poll takers.

        • Thats actually a really eye opening point, these are usually telephonic, and at the first sign of a poll or telemarketer, I either hang up, or, if i’m feeling feisty, mess with their heads a bit. Given how liberals tend to be truly self righteous, and certain of their own virtue, it would be interesting to see some data on the political bent of those voting.

          Also, just from looking at the list, I imagine the poll could be quite easily manipulated by the first question being “are you a democrat or republican” because the poll results are just about exactly what i’d expect if you were to ask 80% Dems, and 20% Republicans this question.

    • Sloppo

      Of course liars are the most highly respected. Telling the truth is a hate crime.

    • Realist

      ‘The two WORST LIARS in the country are also supposed to be the Most Respected? Is the writer of this absurdity taking illegal drugs, I wonder.’
      The writer is just reporting what the research found. Don’t shoot the messenger.
      Most Americans are idiots.

  • Whitetrashgang

    The only one that should be on their list is Hawking. My dead dog is way better than the rest, way better.

    • Sick of it

      “Prof Hawking, 66, said: ‘The world of science needs Africa’s brilliant talents, and I look forward to meeting prospective young Einsteins from Africa in the near future. If my visit helps to create opportunities for Africans to enter maths and science, I will be delighted.'”

        Okay I was wrong, they are all garbage.

          I prefer Malala Yousofzai, at least she has half a brain.

        No harm in trying, no matter how futile. I too, would like to meet Africans Einsteins.

        • benvad

          And I’d like to meet a leprechaun and get my three wishes.

        • Daniel McGrath

          That would require a mass breeding program mixing yentas and Mandingos for many many generations. The results would still be a massive disappointment.

        • Realist

          Yes, I am adverse to large crowds also.

        • Malachy_Vilnius

          The problem is one would waste massive resources trying to find the ‘African Einstein’. I am sure, due to the nature of the IQ Bell Curve that maybe one (and only one!) may exist.. but he also may have died already or perhaps has not even been born.

          Better to put ones efforts into preserving Western Civilization: the one that had the original Einstein!

          • Charles Martel

            There are plenty of African Einsteins; it’s just that 2 standard deviations above the avg African black IQ isn’t college material without affirmative action.

          • Malachy_Vilnius

            Maybe they could go to one of those ‘community colleges’.

            Black comedian Chris Rock had a whole routine about community colleges. In Ebonics he said ‘it is where one goes to get their learn on

          • Raymond Kidwell

            Both Einstein and Hawking are over rated physicist that mainly launched a major PR campaign to make themselves famous. In Einstein’s case he was able to take ideas formulated by mostly German/Nazi scientists and piece them together into a larger theory, taking credit for it all. The mostly Jewish media was quick to make him into a celebrity to play down German scientific accomplishments. Hawking did something similar where he wanted to be the next Einstein so he made an effort to become famous. There are more brilliant physicists that most people never heard of.

            So if by next Einstein we mean finding a smart person and playing up his accomplishments, presenting him as the smartest person in the world, even though objectively he is not, well Obama just may be the African Einstein. I don’t think it would be hard to do.

            Einstein and Hawking certainly are smart people, but there are people with higher I.Q. scores and also people who have contributed more to science. Even though Einstein’s relativity is ground breaking, there were many scientists on the verge of this who would have discovered it had Einstein not been in the picture.

        • Charles Martel

          How much are you willing to pay in taxes to do so?

        • Sick of it

          You might find some amongst the Afrikaners. Maybe some Berbers. Otherwise, good luck.

      • benvad

        He’s an idiot beyond compare. He’s obviously delusional.

        • Sick of it

          I’ve been skeptical of who the media declares to be a genius since I was a child, as they obviously lie.

          • Raymond Kidwell

            See my above post about Einstein and Hawking.

      • David Ashton

        Hope breeds eternal in the disabled breast. His mathematical work in science is good, though.

        • Realist

          ‘His mathematical work in science is good, though.’
          Some of it.

          • David Ashton

            He lost his Higgs boson bet, but some of his work on quantum mechanics was impressive. Of course, he was overrated as a celebrity because of his unfortunate disability, but celebrity is not unusual with some other well-known scientists, Einstein of course leading the field.

          • Realist

            I agree with you. But I have a real problem with physicist who let mathematics drive their research rather than imagination. A great example is the wild goose chase for multidimensional space.
            Of course mathematics is necessary in physics (all science), but should not dominate.
            Einstein never did that.

          • David Ashton

            Robert Spitzer’s “New Proofs of the Existence of God” has an interesting critique of “multidimensional space” notions. But like so many able theologians, philosophers and scientists he is a Jesuit, and therefore an Enemy of the People according to Katherine McChesney et al.

          • Realist

            I have little interest in religious matters. I am an atheist

          • Rurik

            I’ll quickly admit I’m unqualified to judge whether Hawking’s work is sheer brilliance or specious gibberish, since I met my match in intro calculus, so I’ll defer to mathematicians such as our own Derb. But I will observe that incomprehensible gibberish declaimed authoritatively is oft mistaken for genius, q.v. the Deconstructionists, and, and all of “climate science”. Such is the foundation of Academic reputation.

          • David Ashton

            I share your sentiments. Viz. the Sokal Hoax, Reich’s Orgone Box, Lysenko’s agriculture, &c. The suppression of biological research into race because of its possible political implications, rather than higher math, is a more familiar field to me.

      • Daniel McGrath

        He was being sarcastic obviously.

      • Speedy Steve

        Those Einsteins will be White.

        • Sick of it

          Sadly, they will be aborted, lost via miscegenation, or, if they survive, marginalized by a society which despises them in favor of low IQ savages.

          • Speedy Steve

            What I meant was that any Einstein coming from Africa will be non-negroid. But I agree with your assessment viz abortion. Miscegenation will only bring about more Obongos.

      • Rurik

        Now might be the time to ponder why Einstein retains the reputation as World’s smartest ever scientist. Bohr, Rutherford, Heisenberg, Planck, Teller, and others were fully his equal and maybe his better. Einstein had a theory that could be caricatured with a simple slogan that could be chanted without real understanding, and he was fashionably sloppy and absent-minded which offers an alibi for the rest of us slobs. And he was also fashionably flexible on his attitudes toward nuclear weapons … at the appropriate times.

        • David Ashton

          Not all his work on relativity was original, but that is not uncommon among scientists, and his wife helped him. He was a showman.

          • Rurik

            I think both your points are routine in all areas of genuine scholarship.

          • Sick of it

            The National Socialists hired quite a few scientists who were considered nuts. They had things on the drawing board which we still have not built. I’ll give Tesla the benefit of the doubt. Science should be about discovery, not a small cabal of men telling other people that nothing else can be done.

          • David Ashton

            The Nazis supposedly murdered Tesla (Google “Before It’s News”, January 11, 2014). Science should indeed be about discovery, but the question is always: who pays, and why? German science and engineering have always been top class.

        • Sick of it

          We would not have technologically advanced societies without Mr. Tesla’s A/C electricity.

        • Realist

          Newton was no dummy. His equations get us to the moon and back.

      • Maybe he was laughing his ass off on the inside as he said this ? I mean … he’s too smart to actually BELIEVE that, isn’t he ? … or maybe he’s trapped in that chair, typing “help me help me oh god help me” while the liberal behind the curtain controls what is actually “said”

        Not Mr. Hawking …

    • LexiconD1

      Never mind, none are worthy.

      • george00

        I would say David Duke and Marine Le Pen.

    • David Jones

      I like Putin myself. If NATO doesn’t like him he must be doing something right.

      • dukem1

        Putin…meh..
        He’s the main thug-o-crat in the worlds biggest loot-ocracy…but at least he claims to like his country, which is way more than the so-called Leader of the Free World.

        • adplatt126

          He doesn’t merely like his country. He actually wants to preserve his people and their culture from nefarious external influences and internal parasites. Which is far more than you can say about pretty much any Western leader.

      • benvad

        Ukraine should listen to him and rejoin the fold.

      • Realist

        ‘If NATO doesn’t like him he must be doing something right.’
        Yes, anytime you are shunned by warmongers, you are doing something right.

    The survey was hijacked—like the 2012 re-election of Obama.

    • TruthBeTold

      People were most likely simply picking names of the people they were most familiar with.

            Raciss poll.

        • Alucard_the_last

          And they aren’t doing this by reading the poll. Clearly it was spoken to them considering that they have a hard time spelling anything beyond sexual words and phrases.

          • Reynardine

            “The Most-Admired Man and Woman in America are… Muh Dik and Muh Coochie???”

      • Tim_in_Indiana

        Exactly. When the MSM hypes up nonwhites, then nonwhites will be the most recognizable names.

      • Katherine McChesney

        Perhaps they were given limited choices of people. At any rate, it was probably skewed in their favor.

        • David Ashton

          No Jesuits there, though (unless they are secret members).

          • Alexandra1973

            Look up the term “short-robe Jesuit.”

          • David Ashton

            One of these sites says that a Jesuit wrote “Mein Kampf” instead of Hitler and the anti-Semitic Jesuits were behind 9/11 in order to put the blame on the Jews whom they had attempted to destroy in the Holocaust as part of a world depopulation program to establish a Satanic New Order. This is such crazy stuff that it is not worth my time and trouble trying to refute.

          • Sick of it

            I’ll agree to the New World Order being satanic (see the Lucis Trust and the UN – You’ll find references to them on the UN website, or at least you would a few years back), but that’s one hell of a story.

          • David Ashton

            I have seen Jesuit writers attack the NWO and its forerunners. The Lucis [i.e. Lucifer] Trust would have been condemned by the RCs in the past. Fr Herbert Thurston SJ was a key historian for exposing Theosophy, Freemasonry, Satanic cults, crackpot sects AND fake relics.

          • Sick of it

            You could also become a Protestant. Theoretically…I’m not really sure how bad it is over there.

          • David Ashton

            A Lutheran, a Calvinist, an “Anglican” (High, Middle, Low), a Methodist, a Congregationalist, a Modernist, an Orthodox, a Seventh Day Adventist, a Plymouth Brother, a Unitarian, a Christadelphian, a Mormon, a Jehovah’s Witness, a Progressive Christian, a Wee Free, a Pentecostal, a British Israelite…any suggestions?

          • Sick of it

            A biblical Christian. Go by the scriptures. Probably difficult for a high church kind of guy, but it will make things clearer.

          • David Ashton

            I am not actually a “high church” type. There are reasons why I do not accept that library of books, originally selected by the church, as inerrant in content or easily interpreted, still less a “sole rule of faith”, but despite my great personal interest in this subject and with sincere respect for your concern, I do not think AmRen is an appropriate place to debate this.

    • JohnEngelman

      The values of the Frankfurt School are spreading. This is not because of “brainwashing.” It is because they have been successful in getting their message out. In a marketplace of ideas, like the one that prevails in the United States, there is no such thing as brainwashing.

      • David Ashton

        You underestimate the effects of schooling and fashion. Getting messages out depends on the control of the opinion centers. The “marketplace of ideas” is limited and regulated even in the US.

        • Sick of it

          The media, the school system, peer pressure, idiotic attitudes in so many homes, government decrees, propaganda called science/history, and wolves in sheep’s clothing who falsely portray themselves as servants of God. Yep, it’s a nasty combination and very much brainwashing.

          • Malachy_Vilnius

            I hope the internet, and its related social media, may help to change that.

            There are lots of White Nationalists and Race-Realists on twitter for example.. even Amren (look at the bottom of this post for their twitter feed)

        • Usually Much Calmer

          You are both right? You cannot brainwash someone who is fully formed and independent in their own mind. But brainwashing emotional zombies is like shooting fish in a barrel.

          Plenty of people do not think. Perhaps they may awaken under certain circumstances but right now, they rise, eat, poop, screw if they are lucky, sleep, and repeat unto death. Lilies of the field.

          I am a big fan of yours, John, but you know very well that the very notion of ‘ideas’ is scorned by those lilies. Here and elsewhere.

          Winston Smith chooses to be brainwashed and to betray his love rather than have a rat charge his face while Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn writes books in his head while imprisoned because he can do nothing else. You may brainwash the former simply by following a protocol and it may be impossible to brainwash the latter, although he was accepting of the orthodoxy he was raised with prior to his crisis.

          “For I agree with you that there is a natural aristocracy among men. The grounds of this are virtue and talents. . . . The natural aristocracy I consider as the most precious gift of nature for the instruction, the trusts, and government of society.”
          -Thomas Jefferson

          Happy New Year to you both.

          • Sick of it

            The brainwashing starts with small children who have not fully formed an independent self. That’s how they got me when I was young, but I started questioning things quicker than most, being a voracious reader.

          • Usually Much Calmer

            I hope you realize you are exceptional.

            I did mention Solzhenitsyn was a good communist until they put him in prison. Conversely, Smith was a pretty poor prole until they broke him (not sure there’s a lesson there, just an observation).

          • David Ashton

            Jefferson, James Fenimore Cooper and other keen minds of the American past made wise observations on the ability and character required of government. Government FOR the nation is not always best served by “government” BY the populace. Churchill is sometimes quoted as saying that Democracy is the least worst of all forms of government, but also that its value can be measured by five minutes’ conversation with an average voter. This problem goes far back to Plato.

            Best wishes to you and others here for the new year – we shall need them!

        • JohnEngelman

          You remind me of the Marxists I used to talk to during and after the War in Vietnam. These were real Marxists, self acclaimed, and not “Cultural Marxists,” who only exist in the imaginations of those who dislike the social changes of the past two generations.

          These real Marxists complained that they were not able to get their message out because the capitalists owned the news media, and controlled public schools by controlling the political system with campaign contributions.

      • Robert Smith

        Is that why cigarette ads are outlawed on television? I also noticed you didn’t say “free” marketplace of ideas.

        • JohnEngelman

          That is an interesting point. However, in the marketplace for political ideas all have an equal playing field. If anything, the right has an advantage on economic ideas. The plutocracy can outspend those who favor higher taxes on the rich, more business regulations, and fewer business subsidies.

          With cigarette advertising the cigarette industry could outspend opponents of cigarette use. Also, the health risks of cigarette smoking have been proven beyond serious doubt.

          It is not nearly as clear that the values of what you call “the Frankfurt School,” what others have called “cultural Marxism,” and what I call “social liberalism” are objectively harmful.

          The reason social liberalism has become the consensus in affluent democracies is because most people in those democracies want to think and act in accordance with it.

      • jane johnson

        Intellectually? Or do you find her “integrity challenged”? I’m really interested in your perspective, because I admire CR, and also respect your opinions.

        • Rurik

          Well thank you. No, my disappointment in CR is nothing I would call integrity challenged. The details. – Back in the 1980s, I was pursuing a graduate degree in Russian history, and was also paying particular attention the Russian military-political developments. And almost every year I tried to attend the annual conference for Slavic scholars. One year, I think it was 1983, the program included a Black female presenting a paper on one of the panels concerning the Soviet military. Such a thing was astounding! Such a person specializing in the Soviet military was a threefer, maybe even a fourfer. During my years in the field, I only ever encountered two Blacks in classes; both from Africa, a Nigerian who was among the most impressive undergrads I’ve taught, and a Kenyan who was equally memorable in the other direction. So I was intrigued by the, yet obscure, CR. The paper and presentation were unremarkable save for the skin color of the presenter. Strictly in the category of Doctor Johnson’s “dancing dog and lady lawyer”. The topic of her paper and of her dissertation, and subsequent book, involved the Czech SSR in the Warsaw Pact. After completing her PhD, CR remained in her specialty only long enough to turn dissertation into book, and quickly lateraled into academic administration as Chancellor of Stanford. To me, that is unseemly, most scholars want to achieve in the supposed area of their scholarly interest, while trying to avoid the pains of academic management and associated PC brambles. It also raises for me questions about how fluent is her command of the Russian language.
          I will be honest and admit that I did not complete my PhD, and remain “abd”; I simply got bogged down and distracted, but also had to spend three years learning Arabic (which I have now lost through lack of use) in addition to Russian. But I have been interested enough to continue my research and have a number of minor (but successful) publications.
          So no, I am not aware of any integrity problem, and I think CR seems to have shown sufficient ability to be a run of the mill faculty member; but no special accomplishments. Her accomplishments in government may be discussed separately; I don’t believe she showed much ability to control her subordinates and colleagues while at NSC and State.

            Thanks for taking the time to explain so thoughtfully. I still admire her, and am glad that she raises no flags in the corruption area.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton remain the most-admired man and woman in America.

    Most admired by welfare parasites, criminals, Marxists, statists, communists and other losers.

    Pass the ipecac…

    • Douglas Quaid

      Good grief, Obama really said that? I never wasted my time reading his book so I wouldn’t know. Not terribly surprising he would think that, but to put it in writing…

      • Donald

        Actually, it’s probable Bill Ayers wrote the book for him.

  • Alucard_the_last

    Something is wrong. I lived all around America and as a result, know a lot of people and amazingly I don’t know a single person who would vote Obama as most admired and the communist pope coming in 2nd. Just who was the sample audience? The poll was clearly aimed at 1st graders and, possibly, people in state hospitals.

    • 4321realist

      I agree.

      Something just isn’t right here.

      I talk to a lot of people during the course of a year and very few of them like Obama or his bow-legged wife, Moochelle.

      • Alucard_the_last

        It’s true. I lived in Seattle, San Francisco, New York, Tucson, Las Vegas and I’m now in eastern PA, north of Philadelphia and west of NYC thus meaning that I know more liberals/leftists than your average person and not one has every said to me that they admire Obama and Hillary. This poll cannot be scientific.

        • RationaliseThis

          There is a process called “push polling”. You publish a poll showing that an opinion or personality is popular and the natural “go along to get along” tribal mentality inherent in humans amplifies that.

          We too could publish such polls using carefully worded questions.

      • Sick of it

        The liberal pope is not popular in the South amongst Protestants or Catholics.

    • Adam

      Don’t believe you. They love both of these people, particularly their Black hero.

  • Katherine McChesney

    Stephen Hawking and Bill Gates are liberal trash. They’re part of the New World Odor.

  • quest

    I look at that list and see that the most vacuous people are the most admired. We are not coming back. Happy 2015.

  • TL2014

    Somebody please tell me this ain’t so.

    Did you look at the original article and see the list for Republicans’ most admired men and women?

    We need secession of some sort now. People like us commenters here vs the zombies that could have responded as these adults polled by Gallup.

    I simply cannot believe the results for people self-identifying as Republicans. On the other hand, that would explain why Republicans aren’t standing up for us.

    That northwest front/homeland thing is beginning to sounds more and more enticing. Is anyone here actually thinking about it?

    • Wishsong

      Well first the pnw has to be purged of liberals, tweakers, and hispanics. Good luck with that.

    • bubo

      Hell, it might be our only hope. Too bad we don’t have an Augusto Pinochet to lead us.

      • Sick of it

        With the military purges under Obama, it would not be wise to trust a military officer with such power. Our leaders shall have to come from among the people, as did the Founders.

        • jane johnson

          Certain “retired” officers might do nicely. McChrystal comes to mind, and I suspect that he still commands significant loyalty among those who served under him.

          • Sick of it

            No way, he even attended Harvard.

          • jane johnson

            No way McChrystal? Or no way ex-generals in general?

          • Sick of it

            McChrystal and probably other former generals at this point in time. Go back a few decades and it may have been a good idea.

    • Malachy_Vilnius

      The Greek military junta (of the late 60s) seems like a worthy alternative after living under Obama… and Biden!

      Luckily Golden Dawn is around today, they might be able to bring the good old days back for Greece.

    • Ella

      When the country or the crony democratic system falls apart, we will have a dictator and will not be the type that we prefer under those conditions.

  • HE2

    This “poll” explains why published results are not to be taken seriously.
    Public sentiment has turned against obummer.
    Unless only blacks, browns and yellows were polled, these results cannot be authentic.
    Push polls effectively manipulate questions and the individuals questioned for desired results.
    In college, I volunteered for a psych department polling experiment that used the exact same technique utilized by the major polling outfits.
    The experiment’s outcome demonstrated how easy it is to obtain a set of desired results.
    Though seemingly neutral, the introduction to the questioning, as well as the narrative of each question was a setup that distorted, if not determined, one’s response.

    BTW, for this poll, my vote would go to Mr. Taylor and Sheriff Joe.

    • Spikeygrrl

      Dinesh D’Souza and Sarah Palin.

      RUN, SARAH, RUN!

      • HE2

        Spikey, do you mean away from or toward the offices of president and v/p? 🙂
        Poor Sarah was so vilified by the MSM do you think there is hope of her ever establishing credibility with the voter?
        She did not interview well. When questioned about her opinions, ideas, what historical figures have influenced her thinking, she came off looking a little light footed.

        I take it you have read D’Souza’s books?
        I found they affirmed what I intuitively knew about BHO’s psycho-pathology, even before reading his ghost written meanderings in “Dreams,” in which he admits his contempt for things American and White.

        • Spikeygrrl

          “Poor Sarah” was actively sabotaged not only by the Leftist MSM, but also by those in the McCain campaign itself who were assigned to be her handlers. What kind of effed-up football bat would throw under the bus the only person who actively energized the base?! We battered, baffled conservative voters need “Morning in America” again, and who else on the Right could pull off that Reaganesque folksy optimism? Here’s a clue on how she does it: she really, truly means it!

          I am a huge D’Souza fan from way back. The only books of his I haven’t read are the religious ones. I’ve seen every movie so far. Yes, he has made mistakes in his personal life…but haven’t we all?

      • John Smith

        D’Souza is now a felon, so the Left eliminated that threat.

        • jane johnson

          Dinesh will prevail. He subbed for Amato on OANN over the holidays, and was a joy to watch. The man has an indomitable spirit and an unrepentant soul. His theme was Christianity, and he used clips from the debates with Hitchens for emphasis. Pure gold. If all immigrants had 1/2 of his integrity, I’d reconsider open borders.

      • indoctrination_FAIL

        J*F*C*, no! no, no, no. NO. D’Souza is a snake who specifically betrayed Amren exactly twenty years ago last spring. Put his name in the search box up at the top on the right (the one for this site), and get the facts.

        I’ll never waste time or money on anything from him.

        • Spikeygrrl

          Gee, tell us what you really think.

          • indoctrination_FAIL

            You didn’t do the search, did you?

          • Spikeygrrl

            Why should I, when YOU are already supplying all the envious, anti-intellectual vitriol I could ever possibly need? I have enough negativity in my life already that I can’t do anything to alleviate. But I CAN do something about YOU: just tune you out. Buh-bye!

  • Bill Moore

    Hello,

    I looked at the original article and it’s comments section.

    The comments at the original article pretty much match the comments here!

    Thank God for these comments sections. It allows me to have some hope for the future of our country.

      I’m still a fan of George Zimmerman, I loved the story after his acquittal where he pulled a lady out of a wrecked car, all she could say to the media was, “One moment I’m flying off the road, the next thing I remember is George Zimmerman pulling me out of the wreck.”

      The guy is batman.

      • IstvanIN

        Isn’t it awful how the government and media conspired to ruin his life? I am convinced that, although I am sure the death of Martin weighed heavily on his mind, it was the never ending persecution that drove him over the edge.

      That’s one reason why I declined to participate in the poll.

  • B.E.L.

    Gallup surveyed 805 US adults. I wonder where this survey was taken? I can slant surveys too…….I just took a survey of the people in my house and 100% of them voted Obama as the worst president ever.

    See how that works.

    bear in mind, only 805 people were polled. If the pollsters were at a Dollar General store, or a beer dock on 8 Mile in e. Detroit, they found the right people.
