We won't know until we look back, for now everything we say is pretty much blind judgement. Like the wise people say (theGreatBambino) hindsight is 20/20. Looking back, I think we lost our last good president to an assassination in Texas.
I'd say he was the lesser of two evils in this past election. That's as far as I'm prepared to go at this time. In a decade from now we will have a clearer picture and can give you a more reliable answer.
He's a good speaker connects with people but unfortunately a terrible leader and president is starting to destroy our children's future with his spending attitude panders to far left doesn't represent whole countries problems
In all honesty, this is a very ignorant question. Presidents can only be judged, years after they have left office. While we are in the presidency presently, we have not felt the effects of his policies. Since we are only half way through his presidency I say it is to soon to tell. We will have history to judge.
Yes he is. Because he is not President to stroke his ego. He is President because he truly cares about this country and everyone in it. He wants everyone to get a fair shake and opportunities to get an education and healthcare etc.You can't ask for more than that. The ONLY reason he has not accomplished a lot is because there are a bunch republicans that want him to fail and they do everything they can to block his policies. Did you watch the State of the Union address? Did you notice John Boehners face every time there was applause. Mitch McConnell the minority leader for the republican senate said that his main objective was to make sure that President Obama was a one term president. Thankfully that did not come to be.
No, he is the worst president in history. He had a chance to do great things when the economy tumbled; he chose to make it worse. "never let a good crises go to waste". He ignored the Bush TARP stipulations and just handed billions to financial corporations. They repaid him at election time. He did all he could to make it worse (easier to takeover). His voters were the poor so he made everybody poor...

The last president got us into two very expensive wars and never got Bin Laden. Obama is getting us out of the wars and Bin Laden is gone.
The last president looked shocked that he would need to spend 750 billion to get his banker buddies out of the ditch in 2008 but gave them the money no strings attached. Obama had to spend to pull the economy out of that ditch but did it with requirements that the government get paid back when possible for the loans.
The last president made sure he gave huge tax breaks to the rich. Obama has forced an end to those breaks for individuals making more than $400K per year.
The last president led us to the worst financial meltdown ever. Under Obama the economy has stabilized.
But no Democrat will ever be a good president if you ask Republicans.
what is your definition of a good president? there is no correct answer but only facts for you to make an opinion
pros - obamacare - got us out of a recession technically - helped with hurricane sandy - is a two term president - killed osama bin laden and momar gadafi
cons - spent a lot of money - taxes - government shutdown and sequester - inflation
whether he is a good president or not is for you to decide but my personal opinion is that he is better than most presidents just look at the pros and there are more pros than cons so yes i would consider him a good president.
