I think Obama doesn't make a good president.. I think John McCain should have won the election, for goodness sake he was a veteran! also he would bring Sarah Palin one of the most brilliant women i have researched. But asides the election, Obama is raising our taxes and giving hard worker's money to people who are too lazy to work and live in the projects aka living off the goverment.. WOW. AND on top of that he has raised our debt to a trillion dollars.. like we will ever stand a chance to pay that off.

There are many reasons why Obama is a bad president here is a list
. Pulling out of Iraq but sending more troops to Afghanistan. This move is so purely political advancement that it's just sad.
2. Hiking up taxes in a recession, which affects the way people can spend money, which harms the economy..
3. Focusing more on obesity (Not that it's not a important thing to try to fix) than spending less (RECESSION!), or at least on something that harms people more, such as mental health.
4. Spending money and wasting time on health care.
5. Letting the Census Bureau waste money on their cruddy commercials.
6. Not hardly any progress on the Recession, giving bailouts to corporations that got us here, but NOT to small business owners...
7. Obamacare will actually increase the amount Americans spend on health care more than if absolutely nothing was done.
8. It will increase budget deficits by hundreds of billions per year.
9. It will make health care LESS affordable for the average American family.
10. And it erodes our ability to make decisions about our health on our own.

I value justice, meaning what is right for the people. I firmly believe that raising people's taxes for the benfit of other jobless citzens is incredibly wrong. Because how would you like it if you worked extremly hard and someone took your money for the benfits for others who dont even work, who sit in a house payed by the gov.

I'm going to just argue her case seeing as it would be abusive to create a case that she can not argue

A lot of those poor people that have houses payed for by the government aren't there by choice they are their because of the bad economy we have....and do you think Obama made it any better? No. My evidence of this can be found here. http://otrans.3cdn.net...

And I am pretty sure some of those "hard workers" who live in these nice houses not payed for by the government can give up a little money for these poor people who don't have a job nor home. Thank you that is all.
