• No Doubt Obama's Failed

    At first Obama seemed alright. Made a lot of promises and yet his first year was quiet, then his second, third, and fourth. By re-elections it was obvious he hasn't done anything for the country except raise the debt ceiling. Obama's a the President of the United States of America, not America's Human Resources lead with every minority in his agenda. We need him to lead us in a good direction instead of blindly leading us into a debt-pit.

  • Yes

    People gave him 4 years in office. WE get 6 million more dollars in debt, 4 years closer to Iran & a bomb, foreign policy failure, higher unemployment, same old foreign oil dependency. People voted for him because they wanted to try a black president. In short, he failed, things have gotten worse, and just because someone else did doesn't give him the right to.

  • Barack Obama has failed America

    The main qualm that I have with President Obama is his policy on the Free Market and the 10th Amendment. He has raised taxation on small businesses and his administration has forced several companies to close down . I do not think that he realizes that the Free Market is the underpinning to a successful economy and job growth. With regards to the 10th Amendment, the President has repeatedly promoted nationalized policy (healthcare, federal police force ect.) wihout consulting the Governors of the States. The States are sovereign; they deserve to be treated as such. America would be better off if the Obama Administration would turn some programs back to them for them to handle.

    Racism has nothing to do with my opinion of the President; I don't dispute the fact that he is a fine person. He has, however, been a poor leader.

  • Yes Barack Obama is a failure as President

    Like every President since Kennedy, he's promised so much, and yet done nothing. He's promised change and all we got is more of the same like we always do. He promised healthcare reform and what we really got is healthcare slavery. He promised to end the war, and he really hasn't. I could go on and on. So yes Obama is a failure as President because he's made promises he has not kept.

  • The truth hurts: Pres. Obama has done nothing for the Black community except uphold White Supremacy.

    His inability to take action or lead on critical issues such as police brutality, workplace inequality, & just about any issue involving the African-American community, makes him a complete & utter failure in my view. He has risked his neck for every other group EXCEPT those whom share his skin tone. Disgraceful.

  • Poor Man's Jimmy Carter

    Divisive, petty, incompetent. He has always been a puppet without substance. Has surrounded himself with corporate hacks. He even stutters with a teleprompter...The true sign of a liar. Obamacare has been one big corporate bailout for the insurance industry. He is just the worst. Solyndra. Cash for Clunkers. Pardoning Hillary by not prosecuting. So many scandals.

  • Barak Obama: Coward in Chief

    Barak Obama is another failure as a President.

    Yes, he had to deal with an obstructionist Republican Party, which has controlled Congress for six years. One of the biggest assets the President of the United States has is the bully pulpit. He had EVERY reason to express anger at Congress, especially the Republican racists. Only recently has he done so. He demonstrated COWARDICE when dealing with congress.

    His health care reform has been yet another giveaway to Big Pharma / Big Insurance / Big Medicine. Yes, his health care reform is beneficial to some people, especially those with chronic illnesses. However, Obamacare kept in place the HIGHLY INEFFICIENT insurance company / employer based model of health care. We are still 1 of 2 industrialized countries that does not guarantee health care for all its citizens. Single Payer (which is what Medicare is) has been proven, time and time again, to be the best way to deliver health care fairly and efficiently.

    Failure to protect the Commons/the Tragedy of the Commons: One of the reasons why we are an Oligarchy is that what was considered Commons is now available for purchase. When we don't protect the Commons, when we give special access to the elite, just because they have money, we erode the sense of unity, that we are all in it together. Read Dr Sandel's book, _What Money Can't Buy_, for it explains how market forces are eroding public morals, ethics and values.

    Military: We are still in Iraq and Afghanistan. Guantanamo Bay prisons are still operating.

    Poverty: Failure to acknowledge that 50% of the poor / underclass are White--yet the poor whites don't get help.

    Immigration: Failure to deal with immigration abuses. Immigration abuse includes: ability to purchase a Green Card for 0.5M plus start a small business and employ 10 people (this cam be creating 10 full-time minimum wage jobs--jobs that don't even support a single person), failure to deal with immigration issues--and hold Congress accountable when it fails, the problems illegals / undocumented migrants pose, especially in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.

    Justice: Reform sentencing guidelines. Create humane prisons and rehabilitation / habilitation so that when prisoners are released, they stand a chance of being able to support themselves through honest work. Adopt Canada's pardon system, where felons can petition the Government to have one's criminal record struck after 10 years of clean living--so there is hope for ex-cons who have truly rehabilitated themselves not to have the felony conviction (for something stupid they did when they were young) hang over their necks for the rest of their lives. This is done on a case-by-case basis. Diversion for non-violent drug offenders--treat them medically, not as criminals.

    Housing: There are FAR MORE people in need of public housing than there are apartments for them. Public housing is a public good. Especially in areas with very high housing prices, it enables families, seniors and the disabled to have an affordable and stable roof over their heads.

  • Ineffective and divisive.

    American people are less prosperous and less safe because of his policies. America no longer leads in the world because leading from behind does not work. America is no longer respected in the world because of red lines that were crossed and never dealt with because of Obama's cowardice and failure to recognize that American exceptionalism is looked to, to lead on difficult world issues.

  • Biggest Failure Ever

    Obama has been the worst president in American history to date. There are many reasons, one of these being that his whole healthcare policy has been a complete failure. He lied saying you can keep your doctor if you like him/her, as roughly 1,000,000 Americans have lost their doctor and their healthcare plan. His pushes for gun control are ridiculous along with his foreign policy and his treatment of the military. He has no patriotism or respect. Again, he has been the worst president in history.

  • Failure at all Levels

    Troops still in Iraq and Afganistan, now boots on ground in Syria and Libia. Gitmo still open for buisness .Cost to skyrocket in healthcare according to all major insurance carriers. More domestic terrorist coming in daily by the "vetting process" of asking Muslims if they are a terrorist. "Well he said he wasn't so guess he is not a terrorist".

  • No

    I don't feel like people even gave him a real honest to god chance. Many people thought he shouldn't be president because he's African American, and they stuck with that. He did make a lot of promises that he didn't keep or wasn't able to keep but what president hasn't made those promises?

  • Obama supporter!

    I don't think President Obama is a failure at all. What so many seem to forget is that he inherited SO many problems from the former President. I think many good things will come of this country thanks to him. I think his insurance plan will work wonders. I look forward to seeing the great changes in our country!

  • Absolutely not

    Many people claim that Obama has not done anything for the country, but in fact, he has done a lot. For example, he signed the equal pay act for women and got rid of 'don't ask, don't tell' in the military. The big thing that makes him a success though, is that he kept our country from going into a depression. He may not have our unemployment rate up to where many would like it, but he kept it from falling even more than it was. This alone makes him a success in my eyes, and I think that in the next four years many people that doubted him will start to think this too.

  • He didn't meet his lofty expectations, but he's done ok.

    Barack Obama promised a lot, and he did not deliver. However, this makes him a politician, not a failure. Every president promises a lot, and most don't deliver half of what they've promised. Obama inherited a lot of problems and he's been doing his best to solve them. He hasn't been perfect, but things have slowly and steadily improved under his administration.

  • 800,000 jobs a month

    We were losing, 8 years ago, 2008, the last time the republicans held the president with George W bush. 800,000 jobs a month. Where would we be if that had continued.
    Obama also inherited the bank bail out. The Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 (Division A of Pub.L. 110–343, 122 Stat. 3765, enacted October 3, 2008), commonly referred to as a bailout of the U.S. financial system, is a law enacted in response to the subprime mortgage.
    Obama also inherited the stock market crash of 2008 & 2009. Hows the market today.
    Obama had to bailout the auto industry, Like many other problems left behind by George W. Bush. George W. Bush agreed to a temporary bailout, but handed the auto companies' long-term future over to his successor, President-Elect Barack Obama.
    Obama was also left with 2 wars, 1 that the republican started on false pretense, weapons of mass destruction, that didn't exist in Iraq, the republicans went to war with a region that was involved in a civil war between the Sunni and Shiite of Islam. The USA took out the only Tyrant that could control the region. I agree that Saddam Hussein was a killer but that was the only was to control that region & it's civil war. Wakeup & look what has happened

  • Obama a success

    1. He saved American lives by withdrawing American troops from hotspots like Afganistan, Libya, Yemen, Syria
    2 Weakened and checked the AL Qaida
    3. Tackled the issue of an armed population which has had innocent American lives lost through unstable social misfits having access to guns.
    4. He has afforded everyone health insuarance.
    5. He has cleaned up the American image from Big Sam Policeman of the world under the guise of imagined American interest to normal inter-relation with all states big or small. ( Case in point is Cuba)
    6. All undemocratic countries who thought he would accommodate them because he is Black have been exposed for the embarrassment they are in the free world!
    Overall Obama has give the Americans a sombre and humane character instead of the arrogant one they had before him.

  • "It's the economy stupid"

    True in the 90's, still true today. You can't give Obama all the credit for our economic recovery but we are definitely better of now than we were 8 years ago and it happened on his watch. Every morning I look at my CNN Money app and it keeps saying the economy is not growing as fast as we would like but is in good shape. The Fed wouldn't be thinking of raising rates if it wasn't. Which country would we be better off in than the USA? None, glad to be an American
