Obama isn't that bad. We know this because he is better than Mitt Romney. Come at me bro

Meh, I have plenty of reasons why he is, I accept. As per DDO etiquette I will not debate this round. Pro has the BoP thus he must prove that Mitt Romney is worse than Obama.
Good luck.
Debate Round No. 1

Barack Obama isn't a bad president considering all the other people this country has put in the White House. Many say that U.S. interference in Afghanistan and Iraq was Obama's fault, but it was actually started by Bush. People complain about him spending trillions on the war, but in truth, Bush used uncharted funds that were never documented. Also, If Obama had removed all U.S. troops in the Middle East, Afghanistan's government would've collapsed a few months later. They were still in the gradual state of repair, and they needed somebody to guard the border while they reconstructed the country. (Al Qaeda/the Taliban would have attacked earlier if the U.S. hadn't been there.) Another bad presidential candidate was Mitt Romney. He was pro- rich, pro- 1%, and pro- discrimination. He wanted to shut down Planned Parenthood because he didn't want abortion. Planned Parenthood provides free STD testing and care. He won't kill a bundle of cells, but he will kill teens suffering from STDs.

Ok, so Here's why Obama is a very bad president-
Obamacare- Why should half the population hate a law if if's ok? "He continuously reaffirmed that that was the case, despite the fact that more than half the population thought the bill was in violation of the constitution. * When it came time for the court to decide whether it lived or not, the President's lawyers argued that it was legal because it was a tax and congress has the power to tax people."

National Debt-Over doubled in a few years. "We've accumulated more debt in the past 42 months than all of the previous 232 years of this republic. That's impossible to overlook."
Unemployment- It has been increasing since he first took office.
Dishonesty- He has lied about many things that were clear lies.

Now, on to my favorite reason-
Freeing of terrorists- Obama freed 5 terrorists in exchange for ONE traitor.
