Mike Ditka, the legendary football player and coach for the Super Bowl champion Chicago Bears in 1985, just leveled President Obama during a radio interview, saying he might be a nice guy but that doesn’t make him good at his job.
In fact, Ditka said, he’s the “worst president we’ve ever had.”
Via the Daily Caller:
NFL legend Mike Ditka told WABC’s Bernie McGuirk and Sid Rosengerg Thursday that Barack Obama is the “worst president we’ve ever had.”
“Barack Obama’s a fine man. I mean, he’s pleasant,” the hall of fame player and coach explained. “He would be great to play golf with, but he’s not a leader.”
“This country needs leadership. It needs direction. It needs somebody that steps up front. We need somebody like Ronald Reagan.”
Ditka must believe that Donald Trump is the closest thing to Reagan we have among the GOP candidates. After saying that all of them would be suited to lead the nation, Ditka affirmed his support for Trump, saying if the “election was tomorrow” he would vote for the front-runner.

It should be noted that Ditka is the one man who might have changed the course of history involving Obama’s career. He was recruited by the GOP to run against Obama for the U.S. Senate seat in Illinois in 2004, and his popularity alone made him a heavy favorite.
Imagine how different things would have been had Ditka won that seat.
