Why does Obama feel the need to do so much PR?

... Are you ******* kidding?

All presidents do this, he has a young voter base to so it's important that he makes it appear as though he's in touch (reddit AMA) the guy is playing a few angles and he's doing it well.

He's a politician, what do you expect?

You ever heard of someone named Ronald Reagan? He was a good friend of Frank Sinatra, Don Rickles, and Johnny Carson, he did WAY more PR than Obama.

This isn't really an example of his PR seeing how it's an inaugural ball, but it shows that Don and Reagan were good friends, and if you watch many of the don rickles roasts on youtube you'll see Don and Johnny talking about times they were with Reagan doing stuff.

Because it's his job to serve the public, and the public doesn't want a "behind closed doors" President. They want a public figure so they can feel involved in the process, even if they'd be better served by someone who just went to meetings all day.

At the beginning of the Gulf oil spill, Obama was that nuts-and-bolts, let's deal with the problem -type. He got hammered for it -- for not being out there and "feeling their pain." So he added in a more public face.
That's really the President's job -- to be the face of the solution more than to be its sole engineer.

may I ask why you americans think barack obama is a bad president?    
   
it's not ironic or something, I'm french and the way he is depicted in our medias it seems that he is very well appreciated by his citizens, so I guess having a real american citizen is a good way of knowing what's really going on

I can't imagine having a president in today's age that would be liked. All the media focuses on is problems, so that's all everybody hears. Everybody treats Obama like he's the worst president ever, but honestly he's pretty well centered in the middle.

Media focuses on Obama's problems? They worship the ground he walks on, his approval rating is low in spite of the media doing it's hardest to make him seem like an angel from heaven. The few news outlets that do point out how bad he is are always seen as "racist right wing hate mongers" because people can't dislike his policies based on how bad they are, they must hate him for the whole black thing. The Media sings his praises if he farts, doesn't care that he is grabbing power not given to him under the constitution, swears Obama care is the best thing to happen ever in spite of the millions of people who lost their coverage, or have quadrupled their premium. The man is celebrity who some how made it int the white house and needs to get out of it as fast as possible.

Many will tell you "He can't just wave a wand and make stuff happen" this is true thanks to the separation of powers, however Obama has, on multiple occasions done exactly that, simply passed "law" without approval.

I'm American and as a person/human being, I think Obama is a pretty cool guy. He jokes around, eats fast food, likes basketball, and seems like a down to Earth guy. He has a nice family and seems to be a loyal husband to his wife. I would love to meet the man someday. I also think it's wonderful that America has broken the racial barrier by having a black president. 50 years ago, people would have never thought of that in the United States.    
   
As a politician, I hate him. I hate "obamacare" for reasons too long to explain on here. I also don't like how he changed NASA and the space program, his taxes, and his foreign policies/relations with people like Putin. He's an economist, not a military expert by any means. And I also hate his right hand man, Joe biden. Lastly besides this, Obama is a lowzy speech giver. People compare him to Kennedy but to be honest, he sucks during his press conferences. He says "uh" constantly between sentences. That is not the makings of a well endowed leader of a nation.   
   
I'm not a political hothead like some, if you don't like my reasons against him I don't really care, it's just my two cents on the guy.

What I don't get is the focus on hating him as an individual. Blaming all the problems in a country on one person just because he is president doesn't make any sense. More like it's a shared responsibility between the president, the president's administration, the senate and congress.

Honestly man, the country is split. Half the country thinks the man is negro Jesus. The other half thinks he is Satan incarnate. The truth is, he was unprepared for the office, and everybody handles him with kid gloves. He might have been a great president, if they would have let him learn how to lead a state first.

He had these grand ideas, but he had no idea how to execute them. So he told lawmakers what he wanted, and left it to them to figure it out. Unfortunately, they didn't know how to do it either. So they passed this law that was poorly written, and now they are doing damage control.

My theory on Obama is that there is some secret organization that picks presidents, and they got Obama elected so the country would never again elect a black president.

Well, you have the side that hates his ******* guts because he's black, they usually say he's a welfare queen, secret gay muslim, some idiots even believe he swore in on the Quaran. They're completely insane (and retarded) and would probably be better off in a Christian version of Saudi Arabia. This is just about entirely on the republican voter side, not all republicans are like this, obviously, but the party is getting more and more extreme. Those types of people are huge hypocrites, you can see them on Fox everyday talking about how Obama is a baby killer or how giving oil companies dozens of billions in tax breaks creates jobs but having food stamps is communism.

Then you have the people that think he is a paragon of moral virtue. No matter what Obama does, he's right, if you criticize him, it's because you're racist. These people don't have a ******* clue about politics, Obama is probably the first person they voted for, they're naive idiots. This demographic consists of left leaning retards, not retarded because they're left leaning, retarded because critical thinking is alien to them and they're as gullible as a cow being lead to slaughter. They really want to believe Obama is a nice guy.

Now you have your minimalists, relatively indifferent to politics, they only care about a very short list of things. Their indifference, coupled with raving stupidity of others is a big problems for democratic nations. Seriously, educate yourself before you vote.

Then you have your rational human beings, the people that will independently assess Obama's actions and make judgements on them independently. These people usually rally around the NSA and the drone war as major points of failure during his presidency. Just like most presidents, you can't honestly like them so this group doesn't like him either.

>He is constantly pushing his executive power button, more so than any president I know of
>He pushed for the health care reform, which in spite of what all the doctors, and the media, is saying, will only make things worse, even though there have been countless proposals which would fix the problems the American health care system has, without taxing the average citizen
>He is Anti gun to the point of being full fledged retarded about it, and his vice president, Joe Bidden became a laughing stock when he tried to rally against guns by incorrectly using gun related terminology, to the point where every word that he said, about guns, was incorrectly used
>He supports green energy, which while I fully support, he does it in the wrong way, so that it makes it harder for Green Energy projects to get started, and gave them a bad rep with the public
>He cut NASA's funding, and shut down the Federal Space exploration program
>He only just recently, started to close the tax lope holes, the 1% has been using, to avoid the IRS, but many still exist, and are used by his campaign funders
>He bailed out the major banks during the recession, and then decided to throw more money at them, instead of just having the banks pay out their debts they owed, then have them shut down
>He allowed the continued existence of the NSA, and gave them even more power
>He hasn't shut down the Federal National Reserve, which is the center of the majority of America's financial problems
>He has been a moron when it comes to the issues concerning Israel and Palestine, in that he just didn't stay away from that ****, and not get involved at all
>He approved "Operation Gunrunner" which put hundreds of illegal, unregistered, fully automatic, firearms, in the hands of the Mexican cartels
>More than I'd care to type

Not saying he hasn't tried, just saying what he has done is ungodly wrong, retarded, immoral, and that he hasn't been the first in this long line of disappointing presidencies.

Operation Fast & Furious is the one where the Dept. of Justice ordered the selling of weapons to drug cartels. Some of the weapons are linked to the murders of a Border Patrol agent, an ICE agent, and around 300 Mexican civilians.

Actually, I don't hate him. I really like him. I think he got Bush's legacy of ******** and, as a result, has spent several of the past 6 years repairing that. Congress has been consistently resistant to everything Obama has tried, so each of his policies has gotten cut and cut and cut until Congress actually passes it. Its really sad.

LEL

The NSA has wasted tens, if not hundreds, of billions of dollars. They haven't accomplished anything. There hasn't been any foiled terrorist plots. Tracking from the source is way more effective. As for the drones, I'd rather that there not be any armed combat, no troops, no drones. You shouldn't be blowing up random people in villages across the entire region.

You're ******* delusional if you believe the NSA or the drone war has been beneficial, they've alienated the USA and **** on the rights of everyone. I guess I'm wrong when I say they've accomplished nothing, they've broken a lot of laws and piled up a lot of bodies.

Our economic growth is NOT at an all time low.   
   
The stock exchange is at an all time high this month, and it's been climbing steadily since the recession in 2008-2010. That's on top of the fact that the unemployment rate is steadily declining  yes i'm aware unemployment is just the people collecting unemployment. but if the number of people collecting decreases, then that means those people got jobs and no longer get unemployment.  Also, the number of jobs created since Obama took office is Up .23%. Finally, Our GDP is at an all time high, at almost 16 trillion

Just something to note;
GDP being at an all time high just means that the economy isn't in poor shape... In fact, a GDP yearly growth of less than 3% is seen as a very weak economy generally. Stocks will generally go up over time as well; this is not atypical.

That said, economic growth is NOT at an all time low, that would have been during the 30's, and the unemployment rate IS declining.

the stock market represents people buying stuff. the more people that have jobs, the more people get money.

as an american, i cant "hate" the president, he is the leader of Freedomville. that aside, obama's presidency makes me absolutely sick. honest to Jesus, i puked the night he was reelected. and i don't hate him just because i disagree with every major decision hes made, i hate the fact that not just once, but twice more than 50% of the people i call brother were foolish and selfish enough to demand social programs which raise taxes, and all the added welfare programs, and the military spending cuts and cuts to military salary's, all that ****. rather that searching for ways to better the country as a whole, we voted for selfish ways to demand "equality." you don't strengthen a country be making everyone "equal." you inspire the citizens to do everything they can to be the best they can be. you make them want to work the asses off just for the sake of it providing them a good nights sleep. so that's why i am absolutely sickened by obama's presidency. it destroys the american dream. under obama's lead, it has become more financially stable to be unemployed then to work an entry level job. that's just absolutely ******.

Im disappointed in all of you America, and you need to change this.

His approval rating is 40% though, considering the average approval rating is 53%.    
   
Bush, at this time in his presidency, had an approval rating of 37%, Clintons was 65%, and Nixons was 26%. Really, His approval rating had been in the high 40's-low 50's up until the NSA thing, and now he's only been under 40% just a couple of times, last time was in October when the Government was shut down.   
   
Really, in terms of approval rating, he's not doing TOO bad. Again, his AR is 40% for the week, and it's still at 48% overall since he took office in 2009

They are both to blame...

But really.... WE are to blame for MEEKLY FOLLOWING the laws of these random guys, 5000 miles away, who have nothing to do with our lives at all.

Stop thinking about things in terms of 'Democrat' and 'Republican'. That is a puppet-show made to trick people into a habit of Tribalism, part of a tactic used to divide and conquer.

Instead, label people in a way that really matters... Libertarian vs Authoritarian.
> 'Republicans' who want more War and more Cultural Laws (No weed, no abortion, etc) are control freaks, no matter how much they say they want 'Low Taxes' too.
> 'Democrats' who want more Welfare State Laws and Taxes are ALSO control freaks, no matter how much they want 'abortion freedom' or 'no Draft'.

That's why i don't choose between the two - because neither represents me.

Instead, i take the parts from both sides that i like (and other philosophies) and put them together... and let other people call it what they want.

tl;dr | Don't think/argue/label in terms of Democrat/Republican.
If you're going to argue, argue about value and the validity of facts, not fake propagandistic constructs.

That is like saying hating Justin Beaver is wrong because his music is selling.

You know this is a man who called his grandmother a racist and threw his lifelong pastor under the bus when he came out as anti-white. The guy who demonized Mitt Romney for his monetary worth while having a net worth of 10 million.

The guy who said "We’ll keep slashing that backlog so our veterans receive the benefits they’ve earned, and our wounded warriors receive the health care – including the mental health care – that they need" and then cuts out 1.8 billion in Tricare (That's military medical). Which he plans to have hit almost 13 billion.

That is literally saying "We are going to give you the medical help that has been denied by previous cuts" then taking more money from the system that couldn't previously provide it.

Well that's Debatable, our economy is somewhat predictable, due to the fact that we always have a great advacement in it (1990's Investment) and than the collapse in 2008, now we are getting back up, this economic panics tend to happen a lot in american history avg 20-40 years.
But Obama's Policies with Banks and Large Corparation did in fact benefit our economy a lot and helped us with the depression and it's sad people tend to ignore it.
But thats's how our economy is supposed to be and we are right on track with it.

TLDR;
Economy is Cray.

Just friend-ily pointing out...

"But Obama's Policies with Banks and Large Corparation"

No... wrong.

Large U.S. Banks and Investment firms traded in derivatives that increased in risk and decreased in return with every trade. They offloaded these 'Derivatives' (packages of mortgages, etc) onto each-other, making it appear as if BOTH banks were creating insane profits... but when First International and Then U.S. banks stopped playing the gigantic game of hot-potato (passing the derivatives around), the banks left holding them simply BEGGED and PLEADED G.W. Bush (and later Obama) for TAXPAYER MONEY.

Okay okay... so what should have happened?

The banks should have gone out of business. Easy. Done. Their investors should've lost out. (The investors to large banks are mostly insanely rich people anyways), and any of their remaining liquid capital should've gone to settle accounts with the Banks' creditors.

Banks are far-too entangled into our national affairs. They are businesses that should be able to go out of business like any other.

I refuse to believe the economy is getting better when I am seeing more and more people in my area without jobs. Especially my family. As well as at least a dozen businesses have closed. I have lived here 18/19 years and have only seen 3 businesses shutdown before 2010. There has never been so many people struggling for employment either. You also have to keep in mind that over 50% of the stocks in the US are owned by the richest 10% of people which have like 80% of our wealth. Also this isn't just some super small town we are talking about, these are two towns that are right next to a military base I'm talking about. The rest of our county is having it even harder except for 2 of the bigger cities but even those have made a slow decline. Just last week my favorite deli closed down :'(

Accumulation of wealth is a symptom of the capitalist system and Obama just carries on with the status quo. If you want to oppose something, and do something meaningful that would improve your and others' lives, oppose the system, not the politicians, there is basically no difference between them.

This.

sventrain, know what I'm trying to convince people to do?
> Stop obeying ANY insane law or regulation:
> Use any currency that you want. The Federal Reserve note is about to lose its Petro-Exchange status, and hyper-inflate.
> Pursue any industry that you want, regardless of Federal Regulations (and most State regulations). We need to start rebuilding our farms and industry from the ground up.
> Start separating communities based upon the quality and philosophy of people that you want to live around. We'll stay united as a country by our Union to protect eachothers' right to do as we wish, so long as it doesn't hurt anyone else.

(The last point is the hardest one - a lot of people don't agree on the fundamental-most issues, and a lot of people are chronic freeloaders - they couldn't participate in the sort of rebuilding effort i described above if their puffy white-collar jobs or welfare money was cutoff. A lot of them will start to be threatened by a reorganization of a system by which they have to produce something REAL, and we'll have a 'soft' Civil War. Better sooner than later, i say.)

What you're proposing is a grass roots form of democracy and liberalism, that could take a different turn in each community, some people would benefit from collectivisation of land and mutual aid, some would chose other forms of socialism, while some would pursue the capitalist model we live in now, but it would be okay because they would choose to do so.

I suppose that is true as well, but seeing as it is most of my state (Missouri) seems to either be in decline or more or less the same (not counting st.louis) I still can't feel that the economy is going as good as people say it is. Granted a vast majority of people in my county are government/military contractors and the cut's towards military budgets hit us harder. So now there are less jobs up for contractors (Who do everything from on post grocers to teaching new anti-IED devices and gas masks). Some jobs are even being replaced with corporation employees for cheap deals. For example most of the produce handling jobs at the commissary are going to be outsourced to Walmart employee's instead of government workers. tl:dr You're right my view is biased but it still has some validity to it.

If anything a high national debt suggests a strong economy; otherwise the lenders aren't there to give you the money you're asking for. Take the two leading economies, for example; America and China both have debts in the trillions (though China owns a lot of the American debt), and they can afford to have such simply because of how strong their economies are - which creates lender assurance.

You're only ****** when you're in high debt and don't perform well enough to keep the interest rates low. If the interest rates are low, you're golden unless **** hits the fan - it which case it doesn't matter if you had high debt or not, you're ******.

Debt holders demanding their money is part of what caused the global financial crisis; the other main part being people making runs on the banks (withdrawing all their money) thus making it even harder for a bank to try and pay off its debt instantly.

For nations, lenders won't call it back on the spot; collectively they make billions yearly in interest for effectively doing nothing. That's too cosy a deal for a substantial number of lenders to recall a substantial amount of debt.

More likely is that the credit rating of a country is downgraded, forcing interest up to a point where it's unsustainable. This is when a market will crash, or austerity measures will come into play to try and cushion/prevent the crash.

5c/lbs for candy would be bad given candy is a hugely domestic product; you want imports to be cheap

National debt is not the measuring stick of which to measure economic growth/decline, rather use the cyclical nature of the business cycle. Currently we are in the growth side of the trough commonly known as the recovery phase. The national debt only reflects fiscal policy in the country in question and whether or not we are spending more than we can make. We are currently borrowing 46 cents to every dollar we spend, which is why the debt continues to rise, not because of the economy.

Well, he did sign a bill legalizing the abduction and execution of American citizens without a trial, any due process of the law, or any measure of accountability. He also swore he would never sign a bill containing such a monstrous violation of our civil rights. A week after making that promise he signed it, and a week after that he used it. Granted, he used that new loophole to drop a missile on a citizen who had moved out to the middle east and become a terrorist, but it is still a fine example of just how much his word is worth.

Then there is the whole healthcare issue, gun issue, his stance against mandating a balanced budget, etc... (god forbid we pass a law saying we can't spend more than we make)

If that person can be loosely linked to terrorism, yes they can. Now even if the Obama administration won't misuse that power, who is to say the next guy they elect won't go off the deep end and be a bit more liberal with his powers? Terrorism is a broad term, and it can mean pretty much anything that can inspire fear. Maybe little Johnny setting off firecrackers in his kindergarten class is a terrorist now!

I don't expect Obama to abuse this ability, as much as I dislike him, and as spineless as he is, he is not evil to the best of my knowledge. I just think they left the door far too open for abuse in the future, and really that law never should have been passed.

Because while he has the whole public relations part down, he's also supposed to be actually working on certain problems that our country is facing. Some big problems would be his stupid "red line" thing with Syria, "warning" Russia of invading Ukraine, the reformation of medical insurance which has actually raised everyone's medical insurance bills, actually doing what he promised he'd do eight years ago, etc.
Well, a lot of us don't feel that he is able to do this while playing golf every other day and taking vacations every month. It's just insulting, y'know?

And, like Durricane said, we need someone to point a finger at. The president actually doesn't have as much power as we like to think, but he's the figure head of his administration and when that administration fails to deliver its promises, he takes all the blame.

Well, when Obama ran, he promised change. In my opinion, he failed to deliver on that promise. Something to consider though is that that isn't necessarily his fault. Since day one he has been the target of partisan blocking and yes, I believe even a small amount of racial targeting. In addition, he is the president. Historically speaking, the president takes the blame for all the big bad **** that goes wrong in this country even though lord knows there is no shortage of people who hate Congress. All that said though, I can't help but feel that is something he should have anticipated going in. He shouldn't have made promises he couldn't keep, but then again, that is something that all politicians do to some degree.

In addition, there has been all this troubling business with the NSA, Benghazi, etc. The anti gun stance he has taken in response to the mass shootings that have happened during his administration have made him Public Enemy #1 for the NRA (arguably one of the most influential groups in America) and most conservatives. (although like I said, they were hardly on good terms prior to that). His health care reform is a largely controversial issue, and the problems it had (a lot of which still haven't been fixed) starting up have left people feeling more than a little unsatisfied about it.

About 75% of the hate is because he's black. People were ******** on him before he was even elected. The same people that praised Bush hate Obama even though he's continuing Bush's policies.

105% of people in America blame the president for everything that goes wrong in their life regardless of whether or not it's his/eventually her fault. Plus he's a Democrat, so if you're a Republican (roughly 50% of voters) liking him is like rooting for the opposite team in a football match, so people don't do it.

If you want further evidence of this, roll though old message boards to see public opinion of Bush, Clinton, etc.

Most people just want a face to point a finger at. So they choose Obama. He is a pretty cool dude.

People always say that during a president's second term. Why not log in anon?
