Just thinking about our president today, makes me wonder if the democratic society is worth it. Our future lies not only in us, but our president. The choices that Obama makes aren't cooperating towards our point of view. Him being the 44th president is an honor, yet he is not handling it the right way. Hiss technic is basically making it harder on the middle class society. Though Republicians have there ifs, they are more reasonable. The only reason that Obama got elected because he would be the first African American president. They wanted to "try his ways". Though, the reason he got elected again was because a lot of american fans are believing he can change the US............... Well, that is what i have to say.

The problem that few address regarding our president is the incredible amount of opposition he faces from the Republican party. He took the reigns as the country was descending into depression and the republican media has hindered his every move, as have congress. This generations' congress will have been the most incompetent to date by writing the smallest amount of new legislation and acts in America's history. Obama cannot do anything without Fox News attacking him; that is his problem. They will heckle any president they have not chosen, and America will not see much progression until they cease this blocking. If Obama sends more troops to Afghanistan, he will be attacked for prolonging the war and ending innocent lives. If he doesn't he will be attacked on the fact that he hasn't ended the war and overuses drone strikes. If he evacuates the troops, he will be attacked for "surrendering to the terrorists" and regardless of his actions, the opposition has a greater control over the media, and therefore over the people. Who knows who the delegates for the next election will be? Obama won the first one promising change; he had no idea of the force of the opposition; convincing the working class to reject a healthcare bill that helped them. In the second, his only opposition was Romney, who had the Bain scandal weighing him down and Obama's handling of the horrific weather earned him favor. I think the best way to describe it is that choosing the Democrats would be like the Titanic turning round and hitting the iceberg again, whereas the Republicans are just it hitting another iceberg. Democrats are powerless, but the Republicans will only bring out legislation that hinders progress and defend the wealthy. Obama has had trouble as commander in chief, but he was the lesser of two evils.

On a final problem, you have said that "The choices that Obama makes aren't cooperating towards our point of view.", and also said; "the reason he got elected again was because a lot of american fans are believing he can change the US.............."

First up, you only need three dots... anyway, what do you mean "our point of view"? You can't honestly speak for such a large number. No one can. I looked at the way polls and attitudes have been going to guess that Obama's actions just weeks before the election changed the outcome. I admit that. The point of Fox News is just an observation of their attacks on Democratic actions. But you're going to need some backing up, not specifically sources, just some logical reasoning.

Until then, I await your response,

Duncan.

Well that marks the end of the debate. I'm sure Ombama will be quaking in his boots until he notices you misspelled Obama.
