Fortunately, CBS had the good sense to edit his brass statement out of their show to prevent embarrassment for the President.
Specifically, President Obama claimed that his legislative and foreign policy accomplishments top all but three former presidents.
President Obama listed the Presidents who were better than him as "Lincoln, LBJ, and FDR" which will probably come as quite a shock to George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson, JFK, and even Bill Clinton.
"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." - Barack Hussein Obama.

While President Obama seems to have a very high opinion of his job performance, a majority of voters don't share that view.
The latest Rasmussen Poll tells us that only 21% strongly approve of his job performance and 39% strongly disapprove, giving him a -18% rating. Also, 73% of Americans say the country is going in the "wrong direction."
The President's only, and dubious, accomplishment "National Healthcare" is also unwanted by a majority of the voters. Also according to Rasmussen's poll, 55% of likely voters asked said it should be repealed.

Is this starting to look like presidential greatness to you?
Even Jimmy Carter's failed presidency is starting to look good, when compared to the poor results Barack Obama has gotten with his economic and foreign policy initiatives.
