Obama is talking about doing the same stuff he was talking about before he was even elected, america is in the shitter, and yet nobody saw this coming?

Are the Republicans the only ones who saw this coming when the president was put in office?

I literally have no idea what you said in your last remark, but since this debate is about why did america vote for Obama I will provide some points. We are debating this in context that Obama is bad for this nation, as you addressed in your opening statements. I will provide some reasons why he is good, and some things he has done to make this nation work and what made some people vote for him

1. Health Care Reform

Since he has reformed health care people who have had pre existing medical conditions that could other wise not get coverage are required by law to receive it. So firms can not turn not people with life threatening diseases and other conditions from getting coverage. This is a basic necessity and appeals to a lot of people.

2. Supports Gay marriage and equal rights

This is a huge topic at hand, and with him being in support of it earned a lot of the younger generations vote.

3. Helped the unemployment rate.

Unemployment numbers have gotten better since he first took office. I made this graph to show this.









4. He supports education

He has inserted new grants and loans and helped make college affordable for people who normally could not afford it.



Other than this I have already met my challenge in this debate. If my adversary offers up an actual argument, then I will take the time to go into way more detail. Seeing his response with the first two, I do not feel it is necessary at the moment.

Yeah I know that you couldn't possibly lose to con but I just wanted you to know that your examples of him being a good president are crap.

Reasons for voting decision: FF, but the one argument he did make made no sense, and Mikal provided enough reason that I would say he would've lost anyway.
