    He doesn't have any weaknesses...or any that matter.

    His greatest fault is that he depends on lies, spin and propaganda for everything...but nobody cares. So he gets away with everything stupid thing he does.

    I know he seems untouchable right now, but nothing's forever. I still chose the ethical/moral/family decline.

    His greatest weakness is that he a weak leader. He doesn't take responsibility for the actions of his administration, passes the bucks and won't make any decisive decision on his own.

    Federal Deficit.

    The economy can be partially blamed on Bush. Healthcare is still debatable because we haven't seen it in action yet. Ethical/Moral decline is ridiculous to even mention because equal rights is not a decline but either way that was an eventual thing no matter who was president, the tides are turning on that. Immigration isn't his fault, the Senate won't pass anything the House passes and the House won't pass anything the Senate passes, it's hard to address that while your Congress is stuck in neutral. Education, I mean the United States is still falling behind in worldwide education rankings but I wouldn't off that on Obama, though he could definitely put more into it. To be honest again there has been very little to do with guns in his administration, he hasn't passed anything major because party lines are fortified on this issue. This was a close second to Federal deficit because welfare is huge and needs to be regulated, but again some of that is due to the economic situation which I don't fully attribute to him. Poverty is hard to address when people complain about welfare and similar programs so I don't fault him there either, with the economy as it is poverty is easy to come by.

    What I do blame him for is horrendous spending. The spending we have seen over the past 6 years is putting America in the red for decades even if we turn surpluses annually, insane spending and little results.

    Just as a note I tend to lean liberal for the OP

    The defict is long term problem that cannot be solved in one political term.

    Also one has to factor in that one political idealogy is deeply opposed to anything Obama suggests as policy, and that ideology has created a stalemate which they are demanding Obama surrender unconditionally to their political demands.

    Re: Where is President Obama's greatest weakness?

    Obama's greatest weakness is believing all those people throughout his life who told him he was intelligent and competent. Now he actually believes it, despite all the evidence to the contrary, which should be proof enough, even to him, that he's not intelligent or competent.
