Not a single scandal, no matter what nonsense Republicans tried to pin on him, nothing. He was squeaky clean.

    And then they gave us Trump, highlighting even more how awesome and respected Obama was.

    This just boils the ignorant hacks blood
    This is very true.

    8 years without a single legitimate moral/ethical/corruption scandal. First presidential administration to achieve that feat in well-over a century.

    And when one considers that (out of shear desperation and hatred of all the he represented) for 8 years the people who once created one failed, fake "Obama scandal" after the next (i.e. Fast and Furious, IRS, AP News, Benghazi, Czar Gate, Death Panels, Birtherism, Jade Helm, the Clinton email server, Solyndra, etc. etc.).......are today the VERY SAME people turning a blind-eye to (if not openly supporting) the endless series of REAL and MAJOR moral, ethical and national security scandals that have marked the first 18 months of Trump's presidency..........it's impossible to NOT see how much race and extreme ideology motivate the views and behavior of most Trump acolytes.

    Another fact-free, emotional right wing belief, being presented (by a right winger, of course) as an objective argument. Trump acolytes are entitled to express their own opinions, must like rational, intellectually honest, real Americans.


    Several times I have asked "Name the Obama policy that improved the economy?" No one ever answers because none exist.
    LOL, I doubt that....unless you were on one of your alt-right/nationalist message board, perhaps.

    Even if the Bin Laden courier had been given up earlier, do you think that no actionable intelligence was obtained at all? Our intelligence agencies have claimed otherwise. If that is false, why are they saying it? Do they simply enjoy waterboarding people?

    Oh, and for those coming back with "He got Bin Laden", the info that led to Bin Laden's courier was obtained through enhanced interrogation, which the left claims to abhor.
    You say he was an economic failure but he left with 4.7% unemployment and the longest streak of job growth in history.

    You say he was weakling abroad but he didn't start any new wars and greatly reduced the money we're wasting abroad.

    Your claims about abuse of Federal power are just partisan complaints. The IRS scandal had absolutely nothing to do with him. I can bring up Reagan's Iran-Contra or Bush Jr's WMDs. Obama had no such major scandal.

    When you make claims like this you sound like a partisan puppet. Obama was certainly more successful than Bush Jr, Bush Sr (failed reelection), Jimmy Carter (failed relection).

    Of Reagan, Clinton and Obama it's clear that Obama inherited the worst situation and left the country in good condition.

    I find it sad when people can no longer think critically and honestly because they're so deeply partisan. The idea that Obama can turn around a horrible economic situation and be considered one of the worst presidents is laughable.

    Too damn funny. All of Obama's dirty linen was fake news but Russian collusion is real. You can't make this crap up. Talking about race and extreme ideology, you called a black conservative poster in here deluded. He asked you to elaborate and you ran away.

    I completely understand your pathological need to pretend that, but reality simply doesn't back that up.

    Between his feckless leadership, genuflecting before Iran, lying about Obamacare repeatedly, misusing his authority regarding the Dreamers and abusing agencies under his control, he was not just a failure but materially detrimental to the country.
    Only in your fever-dreams, I fear.

    Even if the Bin Laden courier had been given up earlier, do you think that no actionable intelligence was obtained at all? Our intelligence agencies have claimed otherwise. If that is false, why are they saying it? Do they simply enjoy waterboarding people?
    Sorry, the claim that it happened to to torture is simply specious, as has been demonstrated.
    Well, he see this one particularly hot chick and not does she bag he slackjawed, but he lets a "Whoa" slip out

    By every measure, barry was the worst in my life time. He thought that getting elected was the end result. Clean and articulate yes, but not a leader, not a great man of action.

    Really, worse than Bush who left the economy in free fall, two unfinished wars and enormous budget deficit?

    Score card:

    Bill Clinton: left a good economy. no wars. budget surplus.

    Bush: trashed the economy. two wars. huge deficit

    Obama: left good economy. no wars. reduced deficits.

    Trump: time will tell but deficit has already exploded.

    They can't use measures like the unemployment rate which greatly reduced under Obama.

    They can't use the DOW which greatly increased under Obama.

    They can't use the deficit which greatly reduced under Obama.

    They just have their feelings. They were unhappy under Obama.
