Obama was a corporate puppet. You can see the various health services that donated heavily to his campaign at opensecrets. org. And other politicians.
Obama's platform was the best platform. But he didn't keep to it. He didn't keep the Single Payer Healthcare promise. Didn't close Guantanamo Bay. Didn't "nail shut" the revolving door of lobbyists working in his administration. Etc.
He also signed a bill allowing the indefinite detention of American citizens without a trial. National Defense Authorization Act of 2014. Wholly unconstitutional and quite simply terrifying.
Frankly, Obamacare was a complete and utter disaster. The only things that were good about it were that kids could stay on their parents insurance until 26 and that insurance companies could not turn away people with preexisting conditions. Otherwise, it was simple extortion. "You can get insurance or pay us a fine." It is a piece of shit, and 30 million people or so *still* don't have health insurance. Single Payer healthcare would have been fantastic, as he promised. But he did not keep that promise along with many others.
I was as much in love with Obama as anyone back in 2008. I was very excited. "YES WE CAN!" But, he was not the best President.
I do believe that Obama would have been *one* of the best Presidents if he weren't a corporate shell. But he is. He is clearly a very capable and very intelligent man. And that's why he didn't want to be assassinated like JFK by the people who *actually* run the government. The wealthy.
He was still a huge step up from President Bush. But no. Calling him the "best" President ever is a tremendous stretch.0
Re-escalating Iraq, meddling in the Syrian war, picking fights with North Korea, leaving Guantanamo open after lecturing George Bush about the human rights issues associated with. Obama was same old, same old. Unfortunately, people's judgement seems to be clouded when it comes to him. Liberals think that he was a left-wing savior (probably because he was black) and conservatives act like he was the worst president (probably because he was black). In reality, he was just another status quo centrist from our one-party system that poses as a two-party system.1
All the jobs Obama created are temp jobs and minimum wage jobs. All the jobs he lost were careers. But according to the media, he "helped revive the economy."
So of course idiot teenagers don't know the difference. Check Wikileaks, and then look up what "State-run media" means. Hint: we used to make fun of the Soviets and Chicoms for it. We used to make fun of Banana Republics for it. Now we have it.
Obama looks very handsome there.3
Despite the right-wing haters, I'm pretty sure history will be very kind to Obama. At the current time, this is still hard to imagine but in 50-60 years from now, people will speak of Obama as they nowadays speak of FDR.0
Yes, he was very useful to us in many ways.
Sometimes I do wonder if the theory that he's our agent that we managed to smuggle from Kenya is actually true. But if he is, he deserves a medal.
Oh well, I guess we'll never know. I'll miss the donkey, as it was amusing to see Vladimir Vladimirovich constantly humiliate him. Plus the damage done by him and his administration to US/EU relations is invaluable.0
Hard to say - I think he was very good, I think history will be kind to him0
LOL The BEST? He wasn't the worst (that belongs to the one (s) that put this country more in debt and into unnecessary wars), but he wasn't George Washington or Thomas Jefferson or Abraham Lincoln or JFK, either.0
Lol no Obama was easily one of the worst people we've ever had in office.1
He was very average.2
He was awful. The worst ever, Good riddance.1
Erm.. no. There are plenty of other TRULY good presidents to pick from. Obama was Meh at best.0
He was good but not the best,
Hell not even the best in the past 100 years.
No. I have no respect for a US president who funds radical Islamic terrorism.0
Don't people consider Abraham Lincoln the best?0
I think he deserved more terms. He was that good. Like, REALLY good.
No, not really.0
No even close0
LBJ, Abe, FDR, Jackson.0
NO! George Washington is the best! Because he was the very first president. And besides, Washington had no party affiliation.0
Better than W? Who isn't?
> GM jerks fired, company saved - such is where we get our war machines if attacked
> Osama finally found lining in grand style in plain sight - dead
> brings home military (but leaves oil cash flow for Ises to breed)
> works with both sides of the isle, so far as Dems allow (e. g. too many military cuts)
> horrible economy with nothing to show for the expenses, really hit the skids 20080
Get your head of the mud he was the worst. I hate to upset your apple cart but Bill Clinton was the best President i don't care about what he did with his personal life the economy was booming and gas prices was low and we had great healthcare.0
Obama was a terrorist. Obama and Bush (Sr and Jr) are the biggest terrorists lived on the face of earth.0
Not even close1
He was def. up there
The best, is a tie between our first of course.. and, the original progressive thinker, teddy1
