Im not tring to be racist or anything but i think Obama will make a bad president because everyone thinks he will get assasinated

First of all, not "everyone" thinks he will be assasinated. I do not know where you got this statement from.

Second of all, even if he does get assasinated, how would that make him a "bad" president?

Third of all, if everyone did think he will get assasinated, how would this affect his actions as president whatsoever?

I don't think he should have won if everyone thinks he is going to get assainated. Also he beleives in no god when there really is a god.If Obama dies then we will have Biden as our president and I really dont want that to happen. I think McCain deseved to win beacause he understands what its like in Iraq and Obama does not.

You said, "everyone thinks he is going to get assassinated". Once again, this statement is totally absurd. His inauguration, alone, is expected to draw a crowd of at least 1 million. Obviously those people aren't going there to see him die. In fact, do you think the 66 million Americans who voted for him thought he would be assassinated? I think not. [1]

Of course, as with any other "controversial" political figure, there is a chance of him being assassinated. Obama isn't taking his chances, however. He has been placed under full time Secret Service protection, and reportedly, his neighborhood has been turned into the likeness of a fortress. So even if an attempt was made, it is highly unlikely it would be successful. [2]

"he beleives in no god when there really is a god" I don't believe this point is at all relevant to the topic and the debate at hand. However, I will attempt to refute it anyway. Apart from the fact that one's religious beliefs have little to do with their moral character, and that the existence of God is highly disputable, Obama does actually believe in God. In fact, he said it himself: "I've been to the same church, the same Christian church, for almost 20 years. I was sworn in with my hand on the family Bible." [3]

"If Obama dies then we will have Biden as our president and I really dont want that to happen. I think McCain deseved to win beacause he understands what its like in Iraq and Obama does not." This point is also very irrelevant to the topic, but here goes. Did you know that McCain is 72 years old? Instead of worrying about Obama's assassination, you should consider the fact that the national life expectancy for males in the United States is 75 years. After that, its President Palin. As Matt Damon once said, "It would be like a really bad Disney movie. The Hockey Mom." [4]

I'm with Pro. It's obvious that Abe Lincoln was a terrible president because he got shot.

So far, Obama has been amazingly good.
Heads of state don't get assassinated terribly often, and I rather suspect the SS will taking more care of him that Regan (as far as they can of course).

How can one be a president - even a bad one - when dead?

He will be a bad president because he won't live past the inaugaral address?
That's more of, not being a very affective president.

Not a bad one. :P
