Barak Obama should leave office for three reasons.
1. Over stepped constitutional bounds multiple times
2. Foreign policy issues
3. Too much power to one branch of government in the American system

Con

The president is a human being and is capable of committing mistakes. If he had done anything wrong under his leadership of the American country, it must not overweigh the fine deeds that he has been rendering.

I am accepting the challenge. I hope we can do this professionally..!

Sorry for my forfeit (accidental)
I will state my arguments here.

As we can see according to these articles, The president (Barack H. Obama) has overstepped his constitutional bounds far too many times. In the courts of law and public opinion, congressional Republicans increasingly accuse President Barack Obama of exceeding his constitutional authority for the benefit of special interests, most recently by delaying a requirement for businesses to provide health care for their workers.

In one instance, Senate Republicans formally backed a lawsuit challenging the president"s appointment of three members of the National Labor Relations Board without confirmation. The Supreme Court has agreed to review a ruling in the case, which found that Obama overstepped his bounds.

Most recently, the White House"s decision to postpone a key part of the president"s health care law drew rhetorical denunciations Tuesday from Republicans who ironically want to see the law repealed in its entirety.

The White House disputes the allegations.

A federal court issued a decision recently that has massive implications for some of Barack Obama"s radical czars, who were installed into positions of power without the consent of the U.S. Senate as required by the Constitution. Score one for the "Separation of Powers" doctrine!
As reported by The Washington Post:
President Obama exceeded his constitutional authority by making appointments when the Senate was on a break last year, a federal appeals court ruled Friday. The court"s broad ruling would sharply limit the power that presidents throughout history have used to make recess appointments in the face of Senate opposition and inaction.
A unanimous three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit flatly rejected the Obama administration"s rationale for appointing three members of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) while the Senate was on a holiday break.

Washington (CNN) -- Opponents of President Barack Obama's plan, which makes sweeping changes to the nation's immigration system by use of executive order, focused their criticism on the legal case, saying Obama has overstepped the boundaries of his authority and is ignoring the will of the people.

Republicans started attacking the plan long before and soon after the President's prime-time address to the nation Thursday night, as GOP activists and lawmakers took to TV, their emails and their Twitter accounts to call out the commander-in-chief.

"By ignoring the will of the American people, President Obama has cemented his legacy of lawlessness and squandered what little credibility he had left," House Speaker John Boehner said in a statement after the speech. "His 'my way or the highway' approach makes it harder to build the trust with the American people that is necessary to get things done on behalf of the country. Republicans are left with the serious responsibility of upholding our oath of office."

Obama has overstepped his constitutional bounds. This is why he should leave office.
Also his weak foreign policy. he has failed multiple times in Ebola/Bangazi/ISIS/Ukraine/Syria etc.
It is very unfortunate. He should leave office so that we may once again be a superpower and that we may be free.
Thank you for your time.

I must say that every issue listed as a reason the President to leave office was an issue with our previous president as well. It seems like people only remember the most negative things about people they don't really care for in the first place. President Bush was the poster child for foreign. Policy issues with his made up reasons to go to war and his hidden personal agenda behind said war. President Bush is the reason President Obama has so much power with all his acts and legislations that were passed to justify the shady things he had going on in his administration. Oh and let's not even speak on over stepping constitutional bounds. What would you consider the Patriot Act? Constitutionally we have the right to free speec but because of the Patriot Act people can be thrown in jail for things they say, newspapers can't run stories because it may compromise "national security" and holy cow don't have to strong of an opinion on things because that just might mean you could be a terrorist. I think people should accept the fact that President Obama was elected not once but twice by the people of the country to lead and he is doing the best he knows how.
