Obama has done little to help this country and done a lot to kill it. Thanks to Obama, the number of Americans on welfare has increased unbelievably. During Obama's time as president more the 11 million people have left full time employment. One in six men between the ages of 25 and 54 are now unemployed. And less people have jobs compared to 2000, despite the population having grown by 31 million.

This is not the only thing Obama has done. Obama also helped many illegal immigrants, he did this most likely because he is biased because of his heritage, this was both unconstitutional and got rid of jobs for both Americans and legal immigrants. Why did he do this? Because he felt bad, not because he thought it would help the USA in anyway. How is a man abusing his powers and being unconstitutional a good president? You tell me.

This was not the only time Obama took his own beliefs above the nation, he also bailed out Chrysler and General Motor for 25 billion dollars with our tax payer money. It was one thing to bail General Motors because it is America, but Chrysler, it is Italian! How does that have to do with America's economy? It doesn't.

Obama also established Obamacare and made it so everyone must get healthcare! This hurts many young people because their money is now being used on the old. This is really hurting many young people because they are just getting on their feet, it is also a breach of our rights. Even the biggest supporters of Obama agreed that he failed this and it did more harm then good.

Barney Frank even admitted that Obama had to lie to get Obamacare passed. Obama declared you could be able to keep their insurance plans, they could keep their doctors, and that it would save an average of 2,500 annually

When he was running for office in 2008, Obama claimed that, "Under my plan, no family generated less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes." He lied about this, badly.

Our nation lost its AAA credit rating because Obama is spending so much money. Many of which didn't do anything. For example, bailing out Chrysler.

When Obama was running for office he called Bush "unpatriotic for adding so much to the debt, he then promised to decrease the debt by half. The debt is up 7 trillion from when Obama first started.

Obama's administration provided weapons to Mexican cartels that were used to murder hundreds on top of hundreds of Mexicans and the border agent Brian Terry. The Obama Administration has refused to cooperate with the investigation or hold anyone accountable.

After the BP oil spill, Obama did botched the cleaning process, but he slowed oil production from other companies that had done nothing wrong at all, this led to higher oil prices. Obama also has helped drive up the cost of gas by blocking the Keystone Pipeline.

Obama also went out of the law and was unconstitutional many times. Not only was Obamacare unconstitutional but he tried to force Christians to pay for abortifacients via Obamacare. This is outright illegal. He also broke the law repeatedly by making 23 unilateral changes to Obamacare. He also unilaterally implemented the DREAM Act which Congress didn't pass and gave out work permits to illegal immigrants, this is illegal.

He also made a illegal war with Libya without permission from Congress. This helped put the country in an unstable state.

Obama chose the tax cheat, Tim Geithner as his Secretary of Treasury, and then raised taxes. He did this even after saying taxes would not be raised.

In 1969 we could go to the moon, but thanks to Obama we can no longer go! That is sad, he cut of the funding so bad we can't go to the moon and what did he do with what was NASA's money probably something useless like Obamacare.

People often say that Bush was much worse then Obama, this is wrong. Firstly Obama raised the debt 7 trillion and Bush only raised it 2 trillion, Bush was also devoted, he quit golf, while Obama started golfing more. Bush also obeyed the law. Bush also didn't lie to his people to create a horrible healthcare law and healthcare that mess up lives.

If you say he didn't do it, then why would I do it? Whoever it is, I didn't make it.
