If we let this person think that he is a good president then he is wrong no matter what he will always be the worst president in the entire united states of america.

Obama is awesome. He won a Nobel peace prize. Please explain why you are blaspheming what is likely the incarnation of God himself.

well if obama is helping this country then he would not even have obama care to make money and force people to pay more for heath care so why do you really think that obama is awesome when all he does is force people to pay more. Also he didn't die on the cross he died and will never be helping us.

1.Obama care is intended to make healthcare more affordable, and accessible to more people. http://obamacarefacts.com...

If you're going to assert that Obamacare increases insurance rates and that in affect is destroying America the please give some sort of evidence. Without evidence you are just making baseless accusations.

No matter what he think is helping us it is just destroying us. We are Paying more money for Obama care and all he thinks is that we are just people who are earning money that the government pays us.

Your source is an opinion piece. The only fact that can be established from the piece is that Obama either lied, embellished or was mistaken about Obama care. This doesn't show that Obama care is a net loss for society. It also doesn't show that Obama is destroying society. Even if we can show that Obama care is bad, it in no way shows he is destroying the country.

I remind everyone the burden of proof is on pro and despite my dancing around, pro hasn't proved anything.

I haven't put up much of an argument, because my opponent hasn't offered much to refute. My opponent has fell desperately short of proving that Obama is destroying the country. At best my opponent showed Obama has done a bad job at president, but even if you take his weak arguments to mean that , it still falls extremely short of proving his actions are destroying the country. It's basic logic. The conclusion doesn't follow from the premises.

Keeping it to 3 rounds and starting on Monday also would help.

Ok fair enough. I'll hurry up with my argument than, but you should shorten rounds to 24 hours in future debates. Also limit wording so you're not at an unfair advantage against people with more time to research.

You gave me 72 hours per round. If you wanted me to have less time than you should have made shorter time periods between rounds. I don't plan on half assimg my arguments and just writing the first thing that comes to mind like you did.

It's a little over, but you still can't hold a candle to Pro on hyperbole.

Yep, I'm practicing. Hopefully it's not too over the top.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro never upheld his burden in the debate. His forfeits result in a conduct violation, his S&G point loss is mainly due to run-on sentences, and his "source" is so opinionated that it loses him points.

Reasons for voting decision: LOL. Con wins because he showed Obama is the Messiah. He gets conduct because Pro kept forfeiting. He also gets sources because he called Pro out on his use of opinion articles. lol..

Reasons for voting decision: Con brought up sound arguments and refutation also disproved the resolution that,"Obama is destroying U.S". His points about Obama-care were more convincing than Pro's arguments. Finally Pro lost conduct for the forfeit.
