Worst in history!
Worst in history!
Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.
Skin color and guilt is what elected him, and now you call the race card with Oprah? Your as sadly integrated with a false premise as he is! Try this; What doe's the other 42 whites have to do with it? Nada!
Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
I'd like to know what GW did that you think is so bad? Aside from the extreme liberal media bias against him, I mean. If you're referring to the slumped economy at the end of his second term, that was caused primarily by the Democrat controlled House and Senate. If you're referring to the wars, they were approved by a majority of the same House and Senate. Obama has done far worse damage to America than any other President, the numbers (not polls) clearly prove that.
I believe Obama's legacy will not be viewed favorably by the majority.
Someone should write a sequel to his book "Audacity of Hope" and call it "Audacity of Ignorance". I have never seen a president in my lifetime nor the history of presidents past that claimed ignorance to so many things that occurred during his time in office. He did not know anything about Fast and Furious, or Benghazi, or the IRS targeting conservative groups, or his so called key legislation, Obamacare, was not ready for prime time.
He will be remembered for his desire to use drones on American citizens, fire first, ask questions later. His foreign policy starting from 2009 going to foreign countries apologizing for the United States and shafting our few friends in the region in favor of groups our country lists as terrorists. He will be remembered for wanting to attack Syria with missles killing even more people than Assad had accomplished instead of reaching out to all the refugees that had fled to countries like Jordan, Turkey with an all out humanitarian effort extending a helping hand and building relationships with people that could change the thinking of many who have been taught to hate the United States.
He will be remembered for his feckless spending, the 800 billion stimulus that did not go to shovel ready jobs. He will be remembered not willing to cut spending and produce a balanced budget year after year significantly adding to our national debt. He will be remembered for expanding government involvement in our economy attacking capitalism by replacing it with more corporatism. Whether it be corporate or entitlement programs, he will be remembered as the Welfare President.
He will be remembered for his cronyism for all the special favors to unions, environmentalists, and his Cabinet that was stacked with appointees awarded for political service.
He will be remembered by those who believe in the rule of law as excessively violating his oath to uphold the Constitution.

Is Obama a good president? In comparison to what? Overall, he is no better of worse than most that we have had in the last century.
