We will soonly be electing a new president, as of now the current candidates have more cons to them then pros. Even though many do not like Barrack Obama, he has improved our country quite a bit and he would do a better job at staying for another term and waiting for other candidates to come along as the current ones would most likely give a negative impact on our community and our country.

Aloha! This shall be my first debate, and you shall be my first opponent. I hope you do not expect an easy victory. In any case, on with the debate!

I see where you're coming from as many people don't like any of our current contenders for our next presidential election, but I must say that only one president in history (Franklin D. Roosevelt) has served more than two terms. Granted it wasn't legislation back then. I'll leave my own candidate bias out of this one - as I lack one at all - and continue on why Obama shouldn't serve a third term.

Albeit Obama may have improved our country, let's not forget that so have many other presidents, yet they didn't get a third term. Some have been assassinated, others simple forgotten. Point being, why should a president for the first time in nearly 80 years serve a third term out of the blue?

Another point I'd like to make is that Obama has made some mistakes as well. One being his withdrawal from Iraq. Many say - and most agree - that he withdrew too early and the Islamic State quickly retook much of its lost territory. When ISIS was actually starting to pose a possible threat back in 2014, Obama, and I quote, said "I don't want to put the cart before the horse. We don't have a strategy yet." Obama ignored the Middle East for far too long and we're just now starting to make progress in this mess. Meanwhile, following the Paris attacks, multiple candidates explained just how they would immediately send in troops to crush ISIS, or have a global coalition fight against the Islamic State.

In current conclusion, it seems like our current candidates could prove to do a much better job with our current problems then Obama can. I shall now await your response, my good man.

Seeing as my opponent has forfeited AND has stated that he is only doing this to meet the three-debate requirement, I daresay I am the victor.

My friend, it seems you have not done your research. This isn't a case about whether Obama did good or bad as a president anyways. Please, goggle a few things and reconsider your initial statement.

Barack Obama hasn't helped us at all, so I don't get where you're getting that from.
