  • Meh. He was average. He still has a year to go, so we'll see if he ends his presidency on a high or low note.

  • He certainly wasn't the best president, nor was he the worse president. Hes just in the middle. My reasoning for this is because I think Obamacare could've and should've been executed better... Plus I'm just in favor what the Canadians have healthcare wise.

  • Yes he did actually. Especially when you consider what he has to put up with. Under Obama's leadership, there was a dramatic improvement in the stock market, decrease in unemployment and uninsured, rise in home values, pell grants, exports, lowering of the deficit, decrease in gas prices, legalization of gay marriage, repealing of DADT, establishment of the Iran Deal. All this while dealing with Republicans blocking and ruining everything he tried to fight for.

  • His foreign policy was probably his strong suit, but the economy has also done somewhat well.

  • Of course that Kenyan born anti-christ communist was horrible.

  • He turned the good 'old USA into a communist dictatorship.

  • he did so bad, i cant even tell you...

  • He ruined healthcare, he doubled unemployment and debt, he allowed the SEALS to kill Osama Bin Laden but Bush told them to plan it. He also tried to make this free-market economy where the hard workers get paid more a socialist government where the lazy earn just as much as those who tried hard.

  • Thinks Climate-Change is a bigger threat than ISIS. How stupid is he!!!

  • NO! He is guilty of treason and is trying to take away our rights and set up socialism and an oppressive, tyrannical Government. He is a horrible president.

  • Middle class income has literally fell even through the upwards trend of inflation. A stagnant 0%-2% in economic growth has become the norm and the debt of the government has doubled in size, accumulating during his two terms more debt than all of the presidents before him combined. Good job?

  • Hes one of those... Homosexuals.

@triangle of course the American Christian liberal was great.

This is what happens when we elect a a Mooslem immigrant for president.
triangle.128k says2015-09-19T20:03:08.5691274Z
@UtherPenguin What's it like in Canada? I might move there because Obama is slowly turning Merika' into a Communist marxist-leninist nation.
UtherPenguin says2015-09-19T20:07:02.6360286Z
@triangle Canada is great, we are a country of true freedom, we don't have socialized Healthcare unlike the United states
triangle.128k says2015-09-19T20:14:37.5839700Z
@Utherpenguin There's no socialistic healthcare? That's great, ObamaCare is way too socialistic.
Varrack says2015-09-19T20:17:24.5263878Z
Now I'm not sure whether you guys are being sarcastic or not, lol
kasmic says2015-09-19T20:20:56.8380011Z
I am pretty sure they are trolling... http://www.debate.org/debates/President-Obama-is-a-Socialist/2/
kasmic says2015-09-19T20:24:30.1069682Z
Especially as Obama care is not socialist at all, and Canada does have socialized medicine.
triangle.128k says2015-09-19T20:34:03.7538454Z
So am I trolling for speaking the truth of that Kenyan born communist who was sent by the iloominati?
chandlerrouse says2015-09-19T20:48:30.8901933Z
Yes one of the best ever.
chandlerrouse says2015-09-19T20:49:48.5966531Z
Utherpenguin May I enquire as to why you are a dimwitted dolt? It doesn't matter if Obama is a muslim or ans atheist and he is not an immigrant you mem repeating parrot.
chandlerrouse says2015-09-19T20:50:30.1521227Z
Triangle 128 I see you went to the school of idiotdom too
chandlerrouse says2015-09-19T20:52:14.9455329Z
Triangle 128 Do you even know what marxism and communism is, I highly doubt it. Marxism is the movement founded by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels which fights for the self-emancipation of the working class, subjecting all forms of domination by the bourgeoisie, its institutions and its ideology, to theoretical and practical critique.Ignorado

@chandlerrouse You should learn some civility. It will make your argument sound more reasonable. As you stand now, no one can take you seriously.
UtherPenguin says2015-09-19T22:06:54.8697096Z
@chandlerrouse Your insults flatter me,
triangle.128k says2015-09-19T22:40:49.5439523Z
Someone's pissed off, looks like they have a sh*tty sense of detecting trolling.

Obama is the best

@tajshar2k Well done good sir
Haroush says2015-09-20T17:17:45.3551962Z
Triangle, How about instead of being a b***, you go ahead and tell people what you really think. Same to you Utherpenguin. And the fact if people just have an opposing view to the majority view on here, they get disrespected like an infectious disease is outrageous to me. Liberals are suppose to be open minded or open to discussion with tolerance, but yet liberals on here demonstrate more so intolerance than tolerance toward opposing views and opinions. I'll be generous and give liberals outside of DDO the benefit of the doubt. I'll attempt to be nice for once if people allow me to.
triangle.128k says2015-09-20T17:20:30.7786566Z
@Haroush What happened, did you fail to hunt any deer through your confederate flag painted pickup truck? And now you're pissed because of that?
UtherPenguin says2015-09-20T17:22:14.0357185Z
@Haroush I'm not a liberal though, I've made fun of liberal policies several times before, I'm mostly apathetic in the whole liberal vs conservative debate.
triangle.128k says2015-09-20T17:25:31.9229870Z
@UtherPenguin But aren't you far left?
UtherPenguin says2015-09-20T17:26:59.1587462Z
@triangle.128k Far left but still not a liberal.
UtherPenguin says2015-09-20T17:27:41.2946163Z
@triangle Far left but still not a liberal.
Haroush says2015-09-20T17:27:52.6565980Z
@Triangle, No. Lol. If I were to hunt, i'd catch them all. ;) Like Ash in Pokemon, you have no idea! :) Is that all you got dude? Instead of laughing because it was funny, I laughed because you actually said something predictable. I don't have a confederate flag pickup truck, does your uncle have one or something? @Uther I couldn't tell, you sure did contribute and fall into the Liberal mocking parade.
Haroush says2015-09-20T17:28:33.3265801Z
OH and lolol @ Chandler. Derp
UtherPenguin says2015-09-20T17:29:07.3976353Z
@triangle.128k Yes but I'm still not a liberal.
Oppose says2015-09-20T18:07:21.6358748Z
He has an approval rating of 46% as of now according to Gallup which doesn't surprise me much, his supporters seem to be very loyal no matter how many f*** ups he has. But from the annual Military Times survey he received only 15% approval from active-duty service members. Troop morale has slumped during the Obama administration, falling to 56% this year from 91% who were satisfied with their quality of life in 2009. More than half of American troops believe they are underpaid today. Many wouldn't care about this, but to me it's very scary and saddening. "The survey revealed another interesting trend in troops' political identities, revealing that fewer identify as Republicans and more are calling themselves libertarians or independents today." Taken from CNN.Com I feel like no matter how many "good things" he does in the name of "social justice" .. It doesn't and shouldn't take a front seat to become top priority. Gas prices didn't go down because of Obama, not even in the little bit. There is an overabundance of oil at the moment and he surely isn't responsible for fracking either. The real unemployment rate remains at 10.4% and we have a national debt of 18 trillion dollars - since Barack Obama took office, National debt has increased 7.4 trillion dollars!!!! In 2009, it stood at 10.6 trillion. We fail at getting rid of ISIS. Our weapons went into their hands when they were still described as "Moderate Rebels" fighting against Assad. & don't get me started on what he said in his book "Audacity of hope" about siding with Islam. That's pretty obvious to me. I could say so much, but I have to go. Peace!

Your eyeball is very cool
TBR says2015-09-20T18:21:38.8610392Z
@Oppose - 46% is not some rabid base. That is past the percentage of registered Democrats. Point is, don't be so dismissive of the number.
