    I'm proud of him too:
    * He (and Bush) have spent over 5 billions of US taxpayers money to fund coup d'etat in Ukraine, effectively allowing us to return Crimea under our righteous rule; Novorossiya is soon to return to us as well.
    * He bombed Middle East so hard, it gave us an opportunity to even somewhat unite (or at least somewhat cooperate) Turkey and Iran.
    * He really managed to rebuild our confidence and pride by constantly fearmongering US vassals in Europe how strong and dangerous we are.
    * He effectively forced US vassals in Europe to introduce sanctions that backfired terribly against Europe, while giving us a kick to start developing our own shit.
    * Under his (and Bush) rule Islamic State was created, which a great training dummy for our military and navy ^_^
    * He (and Bush) were very useful in promoting anti-Americanism in Europe.

    I gotta miss this monkey, he was awesome. A few more years under his rule and I'm quite positive we'd return Alaska as well... Mmmmm... Alaska...
    Is this still revelant?
    • ... unfortunately all true..
      Have you seen the women in Alaska. Mooooo!!!

    • Eugene

      UPD:
      * And, of course, under his rule they gave birth to an awesome brand "Russian Hackers". It's awesome on many levels and for different reasons (would be too long to explain why).
      * Under his rule US/EU media really took a serious blow to their credibility, which allowed our news agencies, such as Russia Today, to emerge as an alternative source of actual news with constantly growing viewer's base.

      I really hope that one day it'll turn out he was our agent, because he deserves a medal <3

    1. The same people who are giving out the approval ratings are the same people that said the polls showed Hillary was going to smash Trump in the Electoral College votes.

    2. If Obama cared about the people, especially poor people. He would never had changed to tax bracket to include poor people who previously wouldn't get taxed until a certain income was made. If you were living off of minimum wage you wouldn't pay tax until you made a certain amount for the year. Under Obama you got taxed from dollar one. How thoughtful of him right?

    3. He didn't add any jobs to the economy. All of the jobs that grew were in the oil and gas industry which came from the oil boom and the advent of fracking. But the funny thing is this was despite Obama who was adamantly against the industry. He cut off offshore drilling in America during his first administration. He cut the number of permits for drilling in half. He literally did all he could to hemorrhage our ability to rely on our own energy, because he was pushing for electric. Luckily technology and the oil boom allowed for us to grow despite his actions.

    4. He reduced the budget? I'd love to see that, because he never submitted a budget since he started. He even denied the budget plans presented to him.

    5. I'll give him some credit for Osama Bin Laden. But to be fair that would have happened under any president in his place. He was given the information that they found him. All he had to do was say, "Yes". Imagine what would have happened if they told him they had Bin Laden's location and he didn't authorize them to go in.

    President Obama has some legitimate positives. But let's be real about it. Based on his accomplishments he is going to be a very forgettable president.
  • VictoriousSausage
    there are a few discrepancies here and there, but i'm shocked at the hate in the comments on this one, as a Brit, i have no real understanding in what living under an Obama presidency was like, but from here, it looked pretty good, and that's not because of the state of my country, i genuinely think he was a kind and caring president, there may be a few things he did which seem shady, but overall, a nice leader, and strong too, stood up to Russia instead of bending over and kissing their asses. there will be mixed opinions on Obama, but he was a good leader, in my opinion, for stabilizing America, right now your country is being plunged into fear both on what the president is doing and saying, and how the media is covering it. i am extremely concerned at the route the world is taking, i understand the fears people are having today, the worries of immigration and the feeling of detachment from the establishment. but i don't think this is the right cause of action, and in fact, will bring more pain to all of us.
    • EL_MORRIS

      Ok let me explain a little something about us Americans. We argue, we argue, we argue. It is what happens when one party's candidate wins and the other doesn't. Instant argument erupts. And then we flaunt the freedom of speech constitutional amendment (the first amendment) around like see I have a right to get into heated discussions and then verbally abuse the other people who think otherwise because it is allowed in the constitution! That is America for you! And the problem is this is all 100% allowed. So yeah, the comments here can be a little shocking, especially now that it's pretty much you like/ed Obama, and you absolutely 100% HATE Trump. It is crazy here. My neighbors are basically either saying, "Buckle up, we are just getting started!" (Trump supporter) or "I woke up last night with a panic attack due to nightmares!" (Ant-Trump supporter).

    • @EL_MORRIS yeah haha, i get what you're saying, it's the same with us Brits, we may seem calm and collected, but our politics and mindset isn't far from you Americans, it's probably due to the shared British Heritage, some scary stuff is happening now here in the UK, as is with America, the whole mindset of the nation has changed, very few believe the prime minister, but she's trying to make it seem like she's the gospel truth of knowledge, and she's forcing her will through parliament. it's a strange time to be a person brought up in a generation that doesn't expect anything like this at all (ie me and you)

  • Scrambledagain
    Obama is the only man to bomb seven different countries and win a peace prize for his efforts.

    America's involvement in the Middle East is actually illegal according to international law.
    • Kirah

      Don't forget he performed a drone strike on an American citizen.

  • RealandGenuine
    Nope, and don't miss him either. The fact that he went along with anything... I'm known to my friends and family as being real so here it goes.. I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I don't believe in gay marriage. I'm sure some smart Alec will try to respond , that's your right. but it doesn't mean I'm changing my belief. some will dislike what I said probably. oh well, can't please everybody. .
    • Well my names not Alec but...

      while i think it's your right to have your opinion, i believe it's okay for both a gay and a straight man to be whatever they want to be, i don't think it's right to force people to do something they aren't comfortable with, imagine having to marry a man you don't love? i understand the points of view, especially from a religious standpoint, in fact it's one of the most interesting arguments i've found on the internet, i think you're entirely right to say what you want, and am glad you also appreciate that right, and hope my response hasn't offended you, but helped you to see there are two sides to the coin.

    • You're right on time!

    • EL_MORRIS

      Ok, so I have heard this argument from my friend who can quote Genesis 100% correctly in all forms. But here is my smart Alec point of view, everyone has a right to voice their own opinion, but people in America have the freedom to make their own choices, just like how you chose to believe a man and a woman should be the only type of couple. If, you believe people who are LGBT are making the "choice" to be what they are, then don't they have a right to that choice? However, I do not believe it is a choice, due to the fact that my cousin is gay, and I know he had always felt different compared to his friends regarding sexual orientation. It is a hormonal aspect developed in the womb. So, these people were born this way. The Bible mentions Adam and Eve, but Adam and Eve were female and male... but gays and lesbians are female and male. The bible says man marries a wife, but never says man marries a woman specifically.

    Sorry but I don't trust approval ratings, statistics, polls, surveys or the rest of it. We saw what they were worth by the election results.
    Under obama the liberal elites prospered while the working and middle classes had to beg for welfare to survive.
    He and Hillary funked up Syria and Libya. Created Isis. Made things worse in Iraq. Lucked China's button. Made Russia and enemy. Started a war in the Ukraine. Oversaw and did nothing about 8 years of worsening racial division and tension. Ignored for 8 years the please of average Americansalary for a secure boarder to stop liberal elites exploiting cheap illegal Mexican labor and bring back jobs and industry to the American people instead of more welfare.

  • TadCurious
    Barack Obama promised Americans that under the Affordable (?) Care Act (a/k/a Obamacare) that "if you like your current health insurance plan you'll be able to keep it under my new plan. And if you like your doctor you can keep your same doctor. And premiums will go down on average $2500 per family."
    None of that was true. In fact, we know that Obama knew none of that was true even while he was saying it. We know from administration sources that people in the Obama White House were telling him that saying what he did was inaccurate, and yet he kept saying it. Two of his former speechwriters went on the Charlie Rose show and laughed about how what they were writing for Obama was untrue. One of the architects of the Affordable (?) Care Act was caught telling an academic group that it was "the stupidity of the American voter" that enabled the law to pass Congress when the Democrats had control of both the House and Senate.

    Obama cares for the world... except for the Coptic community in Egypt and all of those minorities around the Middle East like Christians, Yazidis, and Shias who are suffering genocide because of his disastrous foreign policy. Supporting terrorists in Syria who seek to overthrow a progressive, democratically elected president and establish Sharia Law, funding the Muslim Brotherhood, and utilizing drone warfare. It was a good thing that Vladimir Putin finally stepped in when he did. Otherwise Christianity in the Middle East may very well have went extinct under Barack Obama.

    His "58%" approval rating comes from a rigged poll, they do the same thing to make Trump look bad for instance one poll that puts Trump unfavorably has the fine print of:

    "A total of 1,000 adults were interviewed by telephone nationwide by live interviewers calling both landline and cell phones. Among the entire sample, 32% described themselves as Democrats, 24% described themselves as Republicans, and 44% described themselves as independents or members of another party"

    By including 8% more registered democrats, you all but guarantee a favorable view of a democrat such as Obama, or a negative view of a Republican such as Trump, not to mention "other parties" are not specified, as Green Party members typically have a much higher view of dems than reps.

    As for your points if I may rebut point by point:

    1. According to the BLS it was 11.3 million, so much like the "opinion polls" that number was padded. Second most of those jobs seem to be in the part time service industry. "Would you like fries with that?"

    2. He did nothing to lower it. Unemployment isn't unlimited over the past 8 years the states have been kicking people off it. That is why its so low, no one can find a job, so they get kicked off then brainwashed democrats pretend that "The job market is good."

    3. Federal budget, did you mean deficit? Please be more specific. Because his "cutting the deficit by two-thirds" Is because the first year included all the bailouts, and "stimuli" of course it's going to be significantly lower. The question is, in the future will it be on the right track? The answer seems to be no.

    4. Horray for Wall St.! Wall St. for Obama, Wall St. for the democrats! Maybe that's why they financed both his campaigns so thoroughly...

    5. Record number of cars sold... American car companies still not as good as the competition.

    6. Gotta give him props on this one, still its not enough, and let's not forget he greenlit fracking.

    7. Yes he did

    8. "Encouraged"? He sat by and did nothing, and tried to take some credit.

    9. While he gets props for supporting it, he doesn't for failing bringing people together to sign anything.

    10. ?

    11. He did

    12. Much like Clinton he was against it before he said he was for it. It was clearly a crass purely political move.

    lol @ OBAMA gave $221m of our money to terrorists the day he was leaving office without having authority from congress. What a nice guy.
    Obama colluded with the Federal Reserve to keep interest rates artificially low while he was in office AND Obama printed around 4 trillion dollars to artificially inflate the economy... knowing it has the very real possibility of collapsing soon because of his actions.
    Polls have been proven to lie since the election. And employment numbers are inaccurate. My once thriving town is now a ghost town thanks to Obama and the factories here closing to move to Canada and Mexico, but true, there are more fast food jobs to replace the factory jobs. -.-
