I think we all remember him fondly, at least we remember his time as president as better times than now. Obama didn't adjust after 2010, he may have become bitter even that how dare the American voters take his strangle hold on congress away. That lack of adjustment maybe why this thread exists.

    whether or not one agrees with his policies, the one thing I dislike the most is the president's habit of always blaming others for whatever arises. The Bergdahl swap being the exception. But this is only my opinion.
    Hence my vote that he is not a good president. I have standards.

    Some people do. They always follow strictly along party lines with no deviations and no exceptions.

    Is it important that we ("we", generically overall) believed him, or is it more important whether or not HE believed it?

    I believe that he indeed did believe it, and I thought him naive at the time because of it. I believe that my belief of his naivete has since been proven correct.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Maybe that's the problem... citizen apathy and lack of accountability.
    I agree, the people do not hold their president accountable for the promises they make. All their elected leaders for that matter. We vote for candidate A, B or C, then go about our daily business for 2 years or 4 years or 6 years depending on the office and only become interested in what is happening around election time and then we wonder why things are not better and promises were not kept. Yep, you are correct.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Is this a chicken and egg question?

    Which came first? The lack of Rep cooperation, then the Executive Orders? Or, the Executive Orders?

    Has Obama been a good president to this point?

    Um... let me think... No.

    We all do, I think. I wouldn't call him a bad president, just below average in my book. But we all rate presidents differently. To some all that matters is the D and the R. Others are more objective. Maybe we expect too much out of a president, perhaps to solve all the problems of the world. No one man can.

    Anecdotal evidence: Even my Obama-sychphant friends on Facebook have pretty much stopped touting his brilliance and/or stopped defending him.

    "Hope and change" is a campaign slogan, not a campaign promise.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
