i use to hate him because i wanted mccain to win back in 08
a lot of first timer voters
voted for him simply because he was black
that pissed me off more
but as time went by
he has proved to me and others that he has done a decent job as a president
so in conclusion i like him as a president

He led our country out of the worst economic crisis since the great depression, he helped us get closer to having universal healthcare, he gave the order to proceed with the mission that killed Osama Bin laden, etc.
Obama has not been the best president we've ever had, but he's definitely not the worst. There are some things he maybe could have done better (like closing Guantanamo Bay, pressing for criminal charges against the bankers who put our country into a recession, etc.) but I alsoI think America is in a much better place now than it was before he took office. Does he deserve all the credit for that? No, but it definitely adds to his credibility as a leader.
Here's the thing: People who are upset and angry are much louder than people who are content and happy. This makes it seem like the country's population hates Obama, but in reality it's just the fact that the people who hate him are easier to hear.

1. He led one of the absolute slowest recoveries from a recession in our history
2. Obamacare is nothing close to universal healthcare
3. Giving an order for someone else to do work isn't an accomplishment.

1: It was the second worst economic meltdown we've ever had, of course it took some time to recover. The meltdown did not happen overnight, so the recovery didn't happen overnight either. Even FDR's New Deal didn't fix everything instantly.
2: You're sort of right, it's not especially close to Universal healthcare, but it's closer than the previous policy, and it's getting more people insured (myself included).
3: Are you sure about that? If that's true, then the U.S. has never had an accomplished president, because giving orders is pretty much all the president does. Are we supposed to expect that Obama go abroad and kill every last terrorist with his bare hands?

1. The US economy has grown at a rate of 2.4% since 2009, as opposed to 9-13% for the great depression. The recovery is absolute shit when you compare it to other recessions including double dip recessions and even the great depression.
2. No, it's really not, making a law requiring people to purchase health insurance is on the other side of the spectrum, it worked for you, and that's great, but that doesn't make it anywhere near Universal healthcare.
3. A president making a policy and a president going "yeah ok seals go get em" are two different things entirely. Other than the green light he had absolutely no involvement in the gathering of information, the preparation, or the execution of the mission, and as such attributing any sort of credit to him is downright ridiculous.

1: You do know that post-industrial countries experience growth at a much slower rate than industrializing countries, right? During the New Deal and Second World War, the U.S. built tons of new industry. Here, take a look at the World Bank's statistics on growth over the last several years. You will notice that post-industrial countries (such as the U.S., U.K., Norway, Sweden, France, Japan, etc.) all have relatively low economic growth compared to industrializing countries (such as China, Brazil, India etc.). Our economy has recovered, and the administration deserves some credit for that.
2: Again, I never said that the ACA was the same or even close to being the same as universal healthcare. I only said that the ACA has brought us closer to it than we were under Bush. Medicaid, for instance, was expanded under the ACA. I am personally greatly in favor of Universal Healthcare and would gladly accept a tax increase to achieve that goal. Although the ACA doesn't give us Universal Healthcare, it does expand the government's role in healthcare.
3: As commander-in-chief, the president makes the final decision on missions like the one that killed Bin-Laden. That means that he has to accept responsibility should things go wrong, but also means he gets some credit (as the highest military commander) for successful missions. The Executive branch of our government also tends to handle foreign policy matters, which means that the people Obama appointed had a lot of influence over the events. Also, how do you know how much involvement Obama had in the mission? A lot of that information is highly classified.

I think that he's a good president. Probably better than Bush. I can see the things he's doing now having a big impact in the future. If he was here at a time when congress was more cooperative (or you know, just doing their jobs at all), he would be able to do a lot more.
#192 - zomaru (03/10/2015) [-]
America needs a tough president who can scare congress into fixing the country, Obama, is a great guy, but hes much ore iconic then he is powerful. Were we not having trouble with the Middle Earth Hobbits or trying to stop Big Bad russia from Eating Ukraine then he would most likely be remembered as a good president. Also Congress basically make his Obamacare look like the worst legislation ever, when in reality it only affected a small minority who besides for maybe the business owners should be glad it exists.
#191 - lip (03/10/2015) [-]
He's a liberal and republicans don't like him.
As for his personality, it's hard to say, I don't think Obama is deciding that he wants to film videos on his own. I think PR people are telling him "Hey Obama you should film this video here is the script it'll be good for you image."
#196 - anonymous (03/10/2015) [-]
On what, the EPA and maybe foreign policy? He's given Conservatives most things what they ask as long as they don't threaten him like the Homeland Security fiasco.
#200 - anonymous (03/10/2015) [-]
It's because he's a black, previously ambiguous background, apparent leader of the opposing party, and the Republicans want to use dirty dirty tactics to get what they want and journalism is dead, Fox News is a straight up mouthpiece, and nobody gives Obama credit because the media doesn't do their homework.
