What are your thoughts about Obama being the president for a second term?

Report as

I like the fact that he is president for a second term. Even though he has not forfilled some of his goals, he is a good president for the U.S, and he will help the financial debt.

He has caused the financial debt. So he should know how to reverse it. Winston Churchill once said : Any nation that thinks it can tax itself into prosperity, is like a man standing in a bucket trying to pick himself up by the handle. True today-

No he did not create the financial debt. That would be the people who caused the big market crash under Dubya's administration.
Report as
jsm, he has not caused the financial debt, two wars, deregulation of the financial industry and more has caused the debt that he is trying to recover from. Please go beyond your environmental rhetoric and look at the financials, it's as plain as day, for those who possess the power of sight.

I sure hope he starts doing that soon

Have you all not looked at the numbers? Under Obama he has managed to spend more than all other presidents before him. He is a fake and will say and do anything for the vote and he did just that. Go back and read the facts people. Obama isn't the "change" he said he'd be.

Spending bills originate in the House. The chief executive only signs the checks. If you need to blame somebody for spending, proper blame is on the House of Representatives.

God allows us to feel the remifications of our own actions or lack of action. This can be good or bad depending on your actions or inactivity. It's really that simple. If you want a change, proceed in harmony.
Report as
I don't blame god for anything, that would be foolish considering, well, you know, that the concept of god is really an innate or if acquired later in life, an infantile coping mechanism. However, who am I to criticize someone else's coping mechanism, we all have them, in various forms, to varying degrees. Some are just much more incredible than others, and I mean incredible is the truest sense of the word.

Less of a majority of voters voted for this guy then in 2008. That is fact. A majority of voters voted for this guy who are not informed and that is a fact. obama played the young ignorant crowd very well and that is a fact. So a majority of low information folks put him in.

First of all, “facts” are supported by data. You keep saying “fact”. What data supports your comments? I believe they are opinions. There is a difference. Secondly, I am not uninformed and I am highly educated so your “facts” don’t apply to me. In America, all citizens are entitled to let their voices be heard. If you think that elections are only for the wealthy and college educated citizens, than you have missed the point of Democracy. How dare you title those who don’t agree with you as uninformed? President Obama won. The debate is over. As an American it is time to admit that your candidate lost. There are no more candidates for four more years so give it up. Support your President or go to a country where you feel better represented. It’s over. Obama won. Done.

Please anyone show me facts that prove he's done anything remotely well for this country. Seriously? And by the way he isn't the only president I have questioned before. In the 2008 runnings Obama said a whole lot of thing about gun control, his views on homosexuality, the military, healthcare etc and to get votes he decided to change his previous views. He's a fake person only trying to win over people but show no real results.

I don't understand. He is increasing control on guns, he has eliminated don't ask don't tell. Which president before him has made it possible for gays to serve openly in the military? None. He has passed Obamacare. Which other president managed that? None. He has put into law, equal pay for equal work. He has ensured a woman’s right to make her own healthcare decisions and so on, and so on and so on. How much proof do you need? I have many more examples. Most Americans are educated in the progress he has made and this is evident by the election results. You may be one of the few who need to do a little more research if you are unsure of his progress.

To the contrary, I am one of those that is willing to contribute to the improvement of all of our citizens. I have no problem with paying my way and giving a hand up to those who need it. Unless you are born wealthy, you will need a hand up at some time. If you are born wealthy, your parents give you a hand up so don't act so superior to those with less. They have probably already overcome more than you will ever experience and with much more class.

Like I said go see where he stood on half these issues during his 2008 running and now. He was against gay marriage, he had this great plan for medical and read obamacare its not good.

Three words:
Osama

Laden
Report as
The Navy Seals killed his ass and contrary to what some think Obama had absolutely nothing to do with that. NOTHING! Except taking credit for something he had no right taking the credit for. People would have made a big deal of any president in office if it wasn't Obama and I would feel the same way. The Seals did that not some guy sitting behind a desk. We've been looking for Osama and Hussein since 9/11 and they are both dead now and Bush nor Obama did that.
Report as
Obama had nothing to do with it. Did Obama go over and search for Bin Laden and kill him? No, Seal Team 6 did.
Report as
Jenn and soccer, bush publicly declared he did not care about bin laden and the search mostly ground to a halt. Obama took the kind of action that needed to be taken and not only chose how, when and who would take out bin laden, he took out more terror leaders than bush ever dreamed of.
He may have been uncomfortable with gay marriage at one point, so was I, but he made dadt void which isn't cheap talk, it's actions.
He is standing up for a woman's right to choose against the heavily financed right wing hypocrites.
"Old people" aren't paying for anybody's health care, they still have Medicare (which GOP would like to see die). While the ACA isn't perfect, it's the closest we've gotten to catching up to the rest of the industrialized world in having health care for our citizens.
You 2 need to do some research instead of just recycling talking points

I agree with you about bush Jr. Instead of going straight for bin laden he sent our guys and gals to Iraq when it wasn't necessary but our military found and killed Hussein and I'm proud of them for that and Bush had nothing NOTHING to do with that. I'm not trying to talk arrogantly of ignorantly about Obama but he didn't have anything to do with the Seals killing bin laden. I'm sorry but for real he didn't. I don't like hypocrites. Obama is like any other politician he will do and say anything for the vote. To make clear its not just Obama that I have felt to be a poor president. I'm stating my side and not trying to put anyone down at all. I appreciate good debates not people who think they know "facts" because honestly unless we are the secret service that knows all this stuff all of us only have opinions.

President Obama gave the order.
Case closed.
The Navy Seals didn't go on that mission on their own. They don't decide their own ops. They are given orders, and they follow those orders.
Bush could have (and should have) given the order, but he didn't. He flat out said that he didn't care about Bin Laden.
President Obama made that mission a priority. He gave the order to find Bin Laden. When Bin Laden was located it was President Obama who gave the Navy Seals the order to execute the mission.
President Obama is the Commander in Chief of America's military forces.

I did not vote for him, however I think he has done a pretty good job with what he inherited. No it wasn't caused by W as most of the posts state. We all caused the bubble to burst. Republicans, Democrats as well as the people that cashed out their equity in their homes and all that lived above their means. This was brewing for 10-15 years. No one President is the cause. Anyway President Obama is a good person and a good president in my opinion. He earned the election.

Super stars for that! I get so tired of the people who blame the banks because they used their house as a checking account or the people who bought more than they could afford. I've got a friend with some serious ADHD issues and she's not exactly financially literate but when she was pre approved for 1/2 million for a house, she was rolling on the floor laughing. If she could figure it out, why couldn't others?
Don't get me wrong, there were major issues with banks but many people were complicit in their financial downfall.
Report as
Do you know that the Independent Review Board, working for the Federal Reserve is reviewing 500,000 foreclosures for bank fraud, waste, and intentional wrong doing. That means that up to 500,000 homeowners have had their homes stolen from them through illegal foreclosure. Not for unpaid mortgage payments, not because they couldn't afford their homes, but because the banks refused to process paperwork adequately and timely. A result, the homeowner was evicted, only to prove years later that everything was done properly and the banks dropped the ball. Now, a year or more, after being homeless, these homeowners are getting reimbursed. The banks have been found to be in violation of too many laws to quote. Hopefully, you won't find yourself in the middle of refinancing only to learn that the bank made an error but doesn’t have time to correct it, and now you are homeless. The banks response, “see us in court”. Well now they are going to court. No it is not because people are lazy or overextended.
