A good president doesn't have to have ALL of those things.

Most presidents are good speakers and educated.

He's change. Isn't that what America needs? Like when HC runs in 2016. We're constantly progressing. That's how we roll dog

What were his grades? No one really knows if he was a good student. Those records are sealed. I wonder why?
Report as
Hmmm

Haha same ole crap.... Wonder what his grades were in Kindergarden??? Hmmmm

I'm guessing none of you have actually tried to get accepted into Columbia before, right? My son has applied and they are TOUGH. He has over a 4.0 grade average and SAT scores in the 30's. He is going to have an International Baccalaureate degree as well as his regular diploma. He works, he's active in our city. He has recommendations up the wazzoo. He was turned down. My point is you don't even get into places like Columbia, Yale and the University of Chicago unless you are well above average. There may be somebody who can buy there way into a school like that, Obama couldn't have even if he wanted too. Why there is so much focus in his college grades after he has been president for four years seems like a waste of time anyway. Other presidents haven't been asked to release theirs. It just seems like another excuse to gripe.

Right on sister. You tell them

Who cares? We are stuck with that moron. He has accomplished nothing of any worth.

Ever consider there are more important things to worry about right now besides gay marriage, marijuana etc etc. Like OH HEY! Maybe the fact we're on the verge of a civil war and Osama, I mean Obama is successfully throwing the constitution out the window and forcing peoples HARD EARNED MONEY to be put in the hands of ignorant occupants (notice how I didnt say citizens). But its okay, carry on and worry about your welfare, abortions, gay marriage and marijuana! No biggy! Thats the problem, you SHEEPLE still think he cares about you. Youre okay with drone strikes on Americans? Monsanto? DHS buying ammunition, weapons of mass destruction and armd vehicles enough to reenact the Iraq war and is denying us the answer to what its really for.. Turn off your corrupt television and GET A GRIP. Its right in front of us. Your ignorance is their power. (put this on another answer. Thought you needed to read it yourself.) Were going BACKWARDS! I hope to God HC doesnt run in 2016, and if she does we definitely dont need her to win. Not like she would anyways. Rand Paul is the closest we may get to recovery. But the system is rigged as a whole so who knows

Explain what good he has done for all the people.
Report as
Go read the hundreds of answers to the hundreds of times this question has been asked.
You don't want to hear about his successes because you want so desperately for him to fail.
Report as
Cmon Red....are you really trying to say he hasn't done anything good? No wonder they dislike us republicans if we can't admit he has worked hard and helped us through one of the worst financial crisis of our history. Let's give him credit. It wasn't luck.

Oh bigred50, You are the one being manipulated by the media of rush Limbaugh, questioning the presidents academics and birth place. Something Fox news does every day. I'm sorry (not really) that the repubs took such a beating last Nov, get over it. Our president holds the office for the next 1400 days.

Don't listen to these people saying there is nothing good about our president. He didn't grow up in privilege, he worked to get to where he is. He understands what it's like to struggle to pay bills so he understands how average Americans live with less. He has a wave of money and cronies fighting against his agenda and he won't be able to help as many Americans as he would like to. He is a good man, a thoughtful man, and now a two term president.

I agree.

Many presidents grew up poor. That doesn't make him better than any of the rest. Reagan grew up poor and abused by a drunken father.
What has Obama done that has been good for all the people? I know he has been great for the corporations, banks, unions and insurance companies but what has he done to better the life's if all Americans? We are teetering on civil war because of his far left policies. How is this good?
Report as
If we are teetering on the verge of civil war it's because you teapublicans can't except the fact that a majority of the American people voted for his liberal policies, twice. Majority of Americans are in favor of gay marriage, keeping abortion legal, health care, and wealthy Americans paying their fair share. If repubs in the Congress would just work with him, he could get a lot done. It's seems that republicans only believe elections matter when their candidate wins.

Well Kathryn you started out good by not grouping all republicans as haters...(teapublicans)..., but you had to finish by grouping all of us republicans as haters of our President. Oh how little you know. I'm sure you group all Irish as drunks as well? No wonder DC can't work together.
Report as
Stars Kathryn !! Most on ask are TeaPublicans....
Report as
dwilly1, you're right, I shouldn't lump all repubs into one boat. Not all repubs are hoping that the president fails because they know that means our country will fail. I would like to see congressional repubs try to work with the president instead of blocking everything he wants to do. Unfortunately it seems the election didn't matter to them because they (congressional repubs) are still pushing an agenda of NO, tax cuts, spending cuts, and restrictions womens health. I have many friends who consider themselves repubs and they are wonderful people. I'll try to be less partisan the next time I make a political point.

Saved many from the Bush depression, increased lending to small businesses, sought to improve manufacturing efficiency, cutting ties between government and energy companies, provide greater transparency of the government to the public, put an end to the Bush's stop-loss policy, recovered virtually all bail-out money from banks, negotiated with the Swiss on the release of tax-evaders information, and a whole lot more to name few. Like most Teapublicans here, you won't know much if all you do is watch Fox and MSNBC on the TV.

DDX. Great, well thought out post. Why do you want to ruin it with your last sentence. You listed all true changes that have helped the working class. You won. Why the last sentence, unless you crave the warfare?? We all complain about our politicians not working together. I follow you because you have intelligent well thought out posts, and even you have voiced the complaint that they won't come together. Why would they when we can't even answer a question on ask.com without disrespecting ones party and even where they get their information. Hope you don't get upset, I just think you are better than that.

He can relate to the rich, middle class and the poor, because he himself has experienced all three classes. He has a general interest in everyone playing by the same rules.

There is absolutely nothing that makes him a good president. Well he did out spend all the other presidents combined. Made more people dependent on government housing, Medicaid and food stamps. Guess those people would say he is great, but most of us tax payers wouldn't agree.

Very little. 4 years no budget or spending reduction. Unemployment hasn't gone down. The number of people who dropped out of the job market(giving up) has risen. He has added more debt than any president in history. He spent more than George Washington through the first 8 months of Bush combined. His healthcare mandate is causing insurance premiums to rise as well as many people losing hours at their jobs because businesses cannot afford to provide healthcare. He has managed to pit the middle and low class against the high class. He has wasted billions if not trillions on "green" companies that went bankrupt. He didn't bail out GM, he bailed out the union workers of a sub company who makes parts. The non union members lost their pensions. The union members were taken care of. Need I bring up "Fast and Furious" and the horrible Benghazi terrorist attack. I could go on for awhile.

Good at brainwashing people with no insight as to what is really going on or should I say down in this country. Hollywood is a great example.
