By excellent, I mean that he will achieve several legislative and policy goals during his term.


False. The repbluican part will do everyhing that they can to try and stop him. They won't cooparate and he will look bad.
Debate Round No. 1


The republican party will be forced to cooperate with Barack Obama because they have already alienated themselves from social and fiscal moderates. If they continue to stonewall the President, they increase the risk that they will lose control of the House of Representatives entirely in the next election cycle.

Barack Obama no longer needs to worry about re-election and can take a strong stance against the republicans. Their scorched earth policies are only going to end up harming themselves. Republicans need to reform their social policies nd seek to attract other demographics, including single women and minority voters. An unwillingness to compromise will only jeopardize their ability to accomplish that goal.



Your wrong. republicans are too dumb to think of those things. They will just do what they have alwys done and be stupid. Barak Obama can't fix them.

Reasons for voting decision: Squirrel is not just grammatically incompetent, but also uninformed. If you watch any news network, they are making progress, which means bipartisanship. I don't agree with all of Obama's policies, but ThomasJefferson is right, Republicans need to pull their heads out of their you-know-what or they will lose in 2016. All this coming from a Republican (No I didn't support Romney, he was too socially conservative)
