Barack Obama is trying to make better jobs to the American people. Also he brought some troop home from the army to see their families. He pushing the law so gay marriage is legalize to get marriage in more state and united state of America. Plus he making sure everyone have health care and insurance.
The nasty bickering and refusals to work together that go on in this country are disgraceful. President Obama has continued to serve with utmost integrity and dignity in the midst of it. He inherited an economy on the brink of total chaos and disaster, and has managed to keep us from going over the edge of potential horror. The BP oil spill, domestic disasters, political climate, and international crisis have held back accomplishing his dreams. With more cooperation and less nastiness, and a genuine commitment to duty and to what is best for the greatest number this country, we could move forward under his inspiring leadership.
Barack Obama is doing the best he can to stabilize this economic threat. George bush destroyed our economy then Obama has to fix it. That's plain and simple. George bush started two wars that will cause America to collapse. Obama needs to bring the troops home and cut military spending drastically. These wars are costing us too much money.
I think I can understand his posture. The one thing I don't like is not ending the war on drugs, Every day I live in fear that I'm going to get locked up for smoking a joint as opposed to eating AtivansTM ( bought from doctor)which when I was taking them i became dependent and when it was time to get off I had terrible withdrawal(read you can die from the withdrawal). I like the fact that he is reforming this stupid health care system, I have to pay $200 out of my pocket for some cheap pill. These doctors see me for literally 5 minutes (if that) I tell them I'm fine take my blood pressure and I hand over $80 They give me a script. The medication is about $125 give or take. Another thing I don't like is this stupid border protection, Now I cant leave my home and go where i want without hours of bull, such as these passports. fill out forms this that, like a little less control there would be nice, I don't want some trigger happy cop firing rounds off at me. All in all he seems cool, I'd drink a beer with him.
i think that barack o bama is definatly a very good president in almost everything he does for us he had stopped alot of events that were going to happen and that could have been critical towards the us nation
To not stray off topic here, going into racial and political beliefs, I would just like to state that if someone else, such as Mr. McCain, were to be in office, the situation were to be the same. Its a big country and keeping every little promise is definitally not possible. Sure, he said that he would of pulled the troops out of Iraq etc. but if he wasn't in office the troops would of had to stay there anyways. Do you think that someone else would have done better? Then why haven't the people voted for the others?
When Obama came into office, may I remind you all, the situation in the American economy was already pretty bad. If you haven't consider this, please do, that first what president Obama has to do is to pull the country out of what former president Bush, I mean no disrespect, has put the USA into. Then he would have to work from scratch from that point on.
Considering the insane mess that Dubya put this country into, it is going to take another term for Pres. Obama to clean up the mess. The problem with this country is that people are not patient. They demand immediate gratification and when they don't get it, flip politically. Give it a chance. The damage didn't happen overnight.
Considering what he was left with; now he is working fantastically hard to deal with healthcare, he has drastically slowed down the recession, and prevented the bordering chaos that he was left with, has improved the state of the ever-present middle eastern war, and daily he is up against stubborn arguments from people who seem to have dismissed his credibility and, despite all proof on the contrary, refuse to see any different. He has prevented an economic disaster, and after having done this, is on the path to improving the country for all. And to top it all off, he is incredibly charismatic, witty and a fantastic role model for today's youth.
the president as helped calm the people.
While many people complain about the health of the American economy, it is the policies of the previous administration that have brought us here. Runaway deregulation, failure to rein in spending, and the decision to drastically reduce tax revenues through unneeded tax cuts to the wealthy created a climate in which disaster could have struck. Obama and his policies have prevented that from occurring, so I consider him a success.
The reason he was trying to take our guns away is so that we would be weak. The only reason people don't attack the US directly is because almost every citizen is armed. So what would they do if our guns were gone? They would attack us. Obama was either being stupid or he was thinking that it might happen.
I believe that Barack Obama is absolutely the worst President that this great nation has ever seen in 250+ years. He was born to a certifiably Communist father, his grandparents lived in Hawaii, and I'm not even convinced that they were working citizens. In College, Obama got so many student loans that he's still paying them off now, he admitted it himself in front of the entire nation! And what did he do in College? He started a gang devoted to smoking drugs. And Obama was the worst of the lot! He was taught by a Communist teacher! He then became Senator, but refused to vote on quite a lot of things. While he was running for President in 2008, he accused Bush of being "irresponsible and unpatriotic" for raising the Debt Ceiling once. In his term, he raised it three times, and is due to do it a fourth time! Or am I mistaken on those numbers? The point is that he had raised the Debt Ceiling way more than Bush had. He assassinated Osama bin Laden, and while I feel that the murderous m@#$^&f@#$%& deserved it, what's to stop Obama from doing it to the Republican controlled House? He even goes so far as to accuse anyone who opposes him of racism, just because he's black, while in fact, he is himself the racist. Under his administration, the white people have become a minority. Why is that? Because he wants to give voting rights to illegal aliens. He is so far entrenched into the Socialist views that he believes in giving people incentives not to work, because they will get a steady income anyway. He wants to tax the rich, even though the rich men and women are the ones who create jobs. He may go on about how the government created jobs, but how many of them are actually filled? Besides, it's not the government's job to create jobs in the first place! He is convincing lowlife Americans who don't want to work that they are special and important by trying to give us bull@#$% about the successful people "not building that". He has made Americans hate successful people, which is why Romney lost- because he's the white, successful, rich man who everyone hates because of Obama! Obama hates America! He goes to many other countries, while it isn't even his job to do that, and apologizes for America! "Say what now?" That's right, he's apologizing to the world for his own country. He doesn't think that America deserves to be a superpower! He doesn't think America deserves to be a nation at all! And the only ones who realize that are christian Republicans and Conservatives, who Obama has convinced the nation deserves to go to hell and even denies the United States' Constitution of freedom of religion and speech. People hate Christians irrationally, Republicans and Conservatives are treated as if they were evil racists for voicing their opinions. Where is the freedom in that?! Obama has and continues to make history as the very worst President the United States has ever had! And it's not because he's the first ever black President, it's because he doesn't deserve to be President. He's a registered citizen of Indonesia, for the love of cheese! That in and of itself means that he is disqualified from the job!
He spent over 1.4 billion dollars on vacations. Also he spent more in one term than Geoge W. Bush in 2 terms. he has made lots of tax increases over the last 4 years. He in four years has budget deficits in excess of 1 trillion dollars. In the State Of The Union he said "Don't need a bigger government, but a smarter government" I agree except he is NOT being smart with our money. So all in all you can say Barack Obama is not a very good president. P.S I am a 5th grader, and yeah I pay a lot of attention to politics!!!
I'm in debt worse than I was 6 years ago. Still a lot of discrimination such that a 40 year old can't find a decent job. He is making the economy worse, so many Americans out of work. He's bring illegals in taking our jobs, closing factories and plants. Where are all the top generals from the Military? Obama is not a citizen born in this country. America is not strong because of him. One nation under God!
Read the arguments on the right side of the page....uninformed voters...
Increasing taxes in a down economy is not bright. Suggesting it spurns economy growth shows you don't understand the economy to any degree.
Barack Obama took office with 7.8% unemployment in Jan 2009...its still at 7.9% in Jan 2013. I am not a Bush lover by any means, but 4.8% and 5.4% look good right about now don't they, Barack? Facts are scary.
-.1 GDP growth in 4th quarter 2012...heaviest defense spending quarter of the year and him & his party tried to spin this as a good thing. What a joke.
He was against gay marriage...now hes for it...got another 5 million votes in November as a result.
Plays the race card day in and day out. His son...the beer summit. He's another brotha, ya kno?
Wipes his butt with the US constitution: Validated killing Americans with drones without trial by peers or due process is one of multiple examples.
This man appeals to low information voters who are generally the non-tax paying, benefiting from the hand out types.
I never thought I would see the day that the non tax paying people on the government dole would out-vote the people paying for the benefits they receive. Good job Barack, your campaign and administration have fundamentally transformed American into a welfare state in a perpetual race war.
I'm not sure what country Obama claims to be president of; but, it sure is not America. I cannot believe the American people are this blind, or are they just brain dead? It is very clear, this President is doing all he can to destroy our great nation and set his own in place as he sees fit. He wants the world to revolve around him. He is an ego maniac and needs a complete mental evaluation. How on earth has this got so far under this man and the people cannot see him for what he is? You should have principles and ethics with morals to be a proper leader and he has none of these qualities. I do not understand why more has not been done to verify all the (8) social securities numbers he has used and is presently using one issued from Mass. in which he has never lived. This man is a complete magic show and his entire life is a lie. Be careful for who you support for it will come back to bite you in the butt. I really wish everyone would do their homework on this man and you will be amazed at all the garbage on him. What a SHAM....
The debt has increased by 6 trillion over his 4 years that's a 60% increase on the debt. The deficit bounced from about -459 billion to about -1.4 trillion in his first year and now stands at a about a -1.3 trillion deficit. Unemployment has staid at 7.8 or higher throughout his term and over 8 for the majority.
This is not a man who is failing at his goals. His history of having socialists and communists as role models and mentors shows his goals and motives, indirectly. I, however, will not label him as a "socialist, communist, Muslim" or anything else people have tried to call him. He is his own ideology; which encompasses many different beliefs/views. You cannot really focus on just one and label him as that specified ideology/belief system. Based on his stimulus package, and his weakening of our military through budget cuts and weaker tactics (hence, when he wanted to end water-boarding and Guantanamo Bay, he is someone who does not want America to be number one. He wants us deeper in debt, taking us from a little over 10 trillion in debt when Bush left to 16.7 trillion currently; adding more to the debt than Bush did, and in half the time!!!!!!!!! I do not see him as a good president, nor do I see him as one who is trying to be a good president. He has an agenda, and it is to weaken this country and boost up 3rd world countries.
Said our taxes wouldn't go up, yet he let the tax cuts expire. Says he cares about children yet encourages the most abortions. In 2008 said he supports traditional marriage, now supports same sex marriage. In 2009 complained about raising debt ceiling, now is fighting to not only increase it, but eliminate it all together. Complained about Bush's spending in 2008, by 2012 he has spent more than all presidents combined. Should I go on?
They're so blind, and I really wish I could end it at that. But this requires me to use at least 50 words. There is no point in arguing with any of these people. Gun control, drone attacks on anyone who mentions the word terror, sending 250 million plus dollars to a man who is just going to use it on our allies, him going from country to country on his little apology tour, saying he has a plan and we're going to fix everything with "Obamachange". He has spent more money than all of the previous presidents combined. Too much to argue.
