I can give you more reasons why he is good than you can tell me why he is bad

Before we begin and Pro presents their case (as I'm assuming R1 is for acceptance and definitions) I would like to state one thing.

Barack Obama is good at BEING the President.

He's got the charisma, the swag, the confidence. He's a likable guy. He's really good at getting people to vote for him. All things necessary for being the President.

All of this is very different than being a good President.

To be a good President, I think one must adhere to their Oath of Office as declared by Article Two, Section One, Clause Eight of the Constitution.

"Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:--'I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.'"

So, if we can... we must decide whether Barack Obama has faithfully executed the Office of President and has, to the best of his Ability, preserved, protected and defended the Constitution of the United States
