Con

Seeing as my opponent has presented no argument, There is already only warrant to vote Con. Regardless, I'll present an argument in order to hold up my end of the deal.

All of the presidents combined before Barack Obama added $7 trillion to the national debt. In one term, Obama added $8 Trillion.

On top of this, Pesident Obama has put little to no focus on many issues, concentrating nearly all of his energy on the economy. This is shown when asking your average joe out there, "Besides Obamacare, what has Barack Obama done?"

I agree that Barack Obama is a powerful orator, and he is wonderful at boosting the morale of the American people, but from an objective historical standpoint, the "bad presidents" are the ones who either get caught up in scandals, or don't do anything. Barack Obama fits in the center of that Venn Diagram.

Is Barack Obama the worst president we've ever had? No, but he's still inattentive, uninterested, and has made enough significant imporvements to this country to be called a "good president."

On top of that, my opponent forfeited; vote Con.
