He also killed 176 children in drone strikes
Got the first Ambassador killed in 3 decades
Broke his promise about guantanamo
Tried to break his promise about pulling out of iraq and was forced out by the iraq president
Broke his promise about not going after guns
Signed NDAA
Expanded and extended the patriot act
and has never taken responcibility for anything bad that has happened thus far

.Because children have never died in American wars before and he is definitely the first president to use drones
. He didn't "get" the ambassador killed, despite this he admitted responsability for the man's death which diminishes your " never taken responsability" thing
. Asking for better background checks is not the same as taking away the right to own guns
. Although the NDAA keeps Guantanamo open, it gave the thousands of women who serve in the military improved health insurance that had previously been denied to them when they were survivors of rape and wanted an abortion

Obama has used drone strikes more than any other president before, they're know for causing collateral damage and he uses them recklessly
Then he didn't kill osama bin laden, you can't have it both ways, and I have never heard him say stevens death was his fault if you have evidince to prove otherwise i'll concede to that point
He tried to ban "assault rifles" which he said he wouldn't go after
The NDAA also has lots of pork attached to it, a few tidbits of good doesn't make it all good

Of course he's used drone strikes more than any other president. I mean, drones have only recently reached the stage where they can be put on the battlefield and be cost-effective. It's like saying that Obama has used 4G LTE or electric cars more than any other president; the others just simply weren't able to use them either at all or as much...

That just bugged me

Although I don't agree he is the best president, or even a good president, I don't think he's THAT terrible. His intentions are good and he's trying to bring acceptance to people that aren't white, straight, males. There have been many worse presidents.

theres actually a lot we can do about it. cut politician salaries. actually fix the welfare system instead of adding things on it therefore costing the country more money. i understand the logic of you have to spend money to make money but when are we going to make it? he doubled the debt in one term but nothings getting better.

That is taken waaaayyyyy too lightly and you can get it for the stupidest **** these days. My brother has it for social anxiety which "doesn't allow him to get a job". **** like that pisses me off. But babysteps. He won't do much important stuff, but he hasn't completely ruined the country. The people of the country are doing that as well.

You seem to forget about:
Jackson, Hoover, Coolidge, Nixon, Bush Jr., Buchanan, Johnson, and Harding, to name a few.

Is he the best? No. Is he one of the worst? Certainly not. The economy has improved, even if by just a bit, since he took office in 2008. The U.S. is no longer in a recession thanks to him, and there isn't much of a war in Iraq anymore, though troops still remain.

He let the National Bank die and created a bunch of pet banks by allowing some of his banking buddies print as much money as they wanted, causing massive inflation and a major economic crisis. It took a long time for healing to begin.

He didn't Let it die. He killed it and he says it was one of his greatest accomplishments. Look into it. It's really interesting.
Jackson was quite the character. He said, before he died, his only regret is not killing the man (he thought) responsible for his wife's death.

It needed to be "renewed" in a sense, and he didn't do much to stop it, if I remember correctly. I guess that constitutes killing it. He may have been a character, but he was a dick.

In my opinion, I think Hoover was also quite bad. The fact that he tried to run for a second term was a joke. He didn't do a lot for the Great Depression, and I think that's putting it lightly. Hell, the ******* slums were unofficially renamed "Hoover-villes."

1. The recession was due to bounce back regardless of the president in office.
2. He also attempted to stay in Iraq past the dates Bush set to come out.
3. The lowest unemployment rates of the obama DJ 4DM1Nistration are still higher than the highest Bush era unemployment rates.

1. Economies just don't bounce back without a push.
2. Attempted being the key word; we pulled out on time. He shouldn't have tried to stay longer, he's at fault for that.
3. That's because the recession hit after Bush left office.

1. Actually yes, our economy has been dipping back and for a number of years.
2. He was almost literally thrown out by the iraq president, he didn't exactly leave easily.
3. Which was caused in part by the housing bubble made by the clinton DJ 4DM1Nistration.

1. I'm going to have to disagree.
2. Like I said, he doesn't look good for it, but we're still out.
3. It was also caused by the massive spending on two illegal invasions of middle eastern countries all the while giving tax cuts to everyone.

Really? How?

I mean, like I said, the economy has improved since he took office, unemployment is down, and he's pulled the U.S. out of most of Iraq and is working on Afghanistan. We're not in a recession anymore. Isn't that good? Even if the economic changes are slight, they're still positive.

Do you have any idea how much Congress has shut Obama down? They're not hitting down bills because they're bad for America, they're hitting down bills because they want Obama to be remembered as a failure. Obama isn't the problem, Congress is.

He's put forth numerous plans, good and bad. Not very many have been passed, and most of the ones shot down were shot down while Congress was primarily republican. While some of what Obama's sent through congress has been shot down by both parties, all of the ones shot down were voted down by an over whelming amount of republicans. I'm sure the same would happen if there was a Republican president and democratic congressman voted against them. It doesn't matter the party, just so long as the other guy fails.

There have been few instances where every or even most democrats have voted for a bill proposed by obama, and if some republicans are rejecting his bills because he is a democrat then it's safe to say some democrats just voted for it because he was a democrat.

Not necessarily. No one can win their entire party in Congress, and Obama has definitely put forward some bad bills, but Democrats haven't just voted in favor of his bills because he's a democrat. In almost everything Obama has put forward, almost all Republicans have voted against him. The same does not go for democrats.

I'll give you a good example. The U.N. Treaty on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities was recently (December of 2012, so maybe not so recent) was rejected by the Senate with a 61-38 vote, just two-thirds short of the majority needed to pass.
All Democrats and 8 Republicans voted in favor of the treaty, and the republicans that voted in favor of it are commonly seen as being more moderate.

The treaty would not change U.S. law in any way, shape, or form, but only bring the rest of the countries' treatment of disabled people up to par with U.S. standards, which a high. A panel based in Geneva would make recommendations to the U.S. on how to improve treatment, but such recommendations would be, well, recommendations; they would not bind or change law.

Why was it voted against, even after the terms of the Treaty were clearly explained and conveyed to all of Congress, showing how nothing negative could happen, only positive? Obama backed the law, as did most Democrats. Republicans (the tea party, really) want Obama to be seen as a failure and they also want one of their guys in the White House.

It's selfishness, but don't think I'm saying Democrats are better. If the situation were opposite, the very same thing may happen, it's hard to tell, but it's obvious in this situation.

Republicans are open about it, too. This explains everything I just said fairly well.
