US President Barack Obama (D), 1.8 out of 5 based on 3954 ratings

  1. I think Barrack Obama will go down in history as one of the greatest United States president. People should cut him some slack, he is a better president than George Bush by miles. Just recently, Obama’s administration initiated the Iran-nuclear deal and the response was astonishing. In fact, most people who are criticizing the Iran-nuclear deal have not read the agreement terms and they are just mad because U.S.A made a nuclear deal with Iran. Can’t blame them for stereotyping, the Western media is the one to blame. Just because Iran is making nuclear energy does not mean they will nuclear bomb the West or Israel out of the face of the earth. It is just stereotyping that Middle Eastern countries like Iran, Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan have nothing better to do than scheme how they will wipe out the West. Of course, there are terrorists organizations like ISIS but terrorism is virtually in every country today. I would lose count if I calculate the number of times a lone gunman has gone rampant killing innocent people in the U.S. Gun violence is too much in the United States. That is why Obama supports a strict gun control policy. But most republicans are against such measures and until Americans realize that Obama is right and stop selling guns all over like toys, that will be the day murder rates will decrease significantly. Apart from that, I think Barrack Obama is one of the coolest and funniest president ever. Like that time when a certain guy told Obama not to steal his girlfriend.

  2. He may not have fixed everything or lived up to his all of his promises, but he’s doing his best to do so. Obama has done a lot to fix the mistakes and problems in the past decade, he has fought with large opposition but he keeps going and tries. He’s not the best, but he ain’t the worst the States have seen.

  3. History will no doubt call him one of our worst president ever. He ran on the premise that he was going to rain in Wall Street. Yet into thousand and nine shortly after being inaugurated, he called together the fatcats of Wall Street and told them, “the only thing standing between you and pitchforks is my administration.” During the presidency of George W. Bush, mini called him a lap dog for Wall Street. Yet W’s administration, prosecuted thousands of Wall Street folks, and convicted 1100. To date, the Obama administration has prosecuted zero and of course obtained zero convictions. Looks like he’s kept his promise to those Wall Street fat cats. So who is the Wall Street lapdog?

    He’s had a pretty great last week, but I’ll admit that he’s been pretty disappointing at times. Part of the problem has been dealing with the insane right wing in Congress, and part of it has been playing politics with the public. I don’t think he’s done a bad job at all, but maybe didn’t reach his fullest potential. That said, being President is hard, and there’s a lot that goes on that we don’t fully understand.

  5. I think that despite what people think, he has improved this country a bit. Of course he can’t magically make it all better, but he has improved it. I don’t think any president could just fix the entire country and all its problems in two terms in office.

    Indeed Obama has been a 180º in USA politics.

    Defining his career with social programs like ObamaCare but also with keeping that imperialist image of USA outside it’s borders, increasing debt and getting more tension against Russia. Good thing he can’t get re-elected

    The most recent issue with our President is he said the”N—-” word on the radio. Was this an appropriate word for our President to say? I think the way that he said it needs to be taken into consideration. He did not call someone a “N—-” word. He said racism is more than the use of this particular word. It was not offensive at all. What do you think?

  11. I think the President is doing the best that he can. America has a lot of issues that need to be fixed. Rome was not built in a day. The damage that he has to deal with is so bad that I think it will take a lot of difficult decisions that will be good in the long run. It is not good to have ice cream everyday. Sometimes we need water that is not sweet like juice. We want what we want and not what we need. Are we even thinking about what we need? We should think about that the next time we are choosing a President to vote for.

  12. I love the fact that Americans came together and voted for an African-American President. Whether he is a good president or a bad one, it was a huge breakthrough for all Americans to show that racism is almost gone. That we can stop our discrimination bases on race. It is a possibility. I remember when I was watching T.V., and they announced he was our first African-American President of the United states of America, we saw black, white, indian, spanish, jews, Russian,and other people from all nationalities cheering about what has happened. He may have done things wrong, but we should be proud of ourselves as Americans for showing that we do not look at skin color anymore when choosing a President. We have come a long way. We honestly believed in him. We thought he could help our country. At that note, our country needs a lot of fixing. Maybe we should be mad at President Bush. The war started when he was president.
    No. We got to know that God is the only one who can say what will happen. We are so blessed tobe such a great nation. We the people need to do something. We need to help our president, not just hate him and pray that he makes the right choices for us.

    I don’t have as strong an opinion as most about President Obama. I don’t think his administration has destroyed America, as some claim. He inherited a huge broken mess with the financial crisis (it happened in late 2008, he took office in 2009.) That being said, I, and a lot of people all over the world get the feeling his administration is a little weak and ineffectual in it’s dealings with the rest of the world. This Iran nuclear deal may turn out looking ok in comparison to the other powder kegs (Russia/Ukraine, Palestine/Isreal, China/South China Sea.)

  15. I think that Barack Obama has done the best with what he has inherited from the previous administrations. That being said, I’m not so sure about welcoming new citizens into our borders from the populations of illegal immigrants just because the country’s debt is so high. I think Barack Obama needs to start looking more at the internal circumstances that would lead to a greater debt if he makes such decisions. However, I am not opposed to the legalization of these people; I just believe it would best be done under a better economy.

  17. this race baiting pathalogical LIAR president is doing everything to turn this once great country into a 3rd rate broken basten of crime. You could not pay me to ever vote for a socialist liberal democrat MOOCHER less be dammed if I sit and watch them ruin my home! After being a democrat for over 18 years, they and the establishment republican party should be taken out and treated the same as the traitor they are as what we did in the 1800’s!

    I’m concerned about the state of our country, and don’t believe this administration is focusing on what I care about most. Our border needs to be secured, and we need to decrease our debt. We can’t afford to take care of our citizens, let alone bringing in others, so I’m not in favor of loosening citizenship requirements, nor of mass amnesty.

    Obama has not been a good President, and the evidence is overwhelming but, the most devastating and insidious acts of his Presidency have nothing to do with policy. He is continuing the trend of the last few Presidents’ of extending the authority and control of the executive branch far beyond what it was meant to have and what the writer’s of our Constitution intended it to have. There are three branches of our government, and when Obama ignores the judicial and legislative branches to declare immigration reform and free trade agreements we’re that much closer to a dictatorship. And getting a Republican in the White House is NOT the answer!

  20. Approval ratings certainly do not tell the whole story. I think the president has made several difficult choices with what is best for the American people in mind. Sometimes the right thing isn’t always the popular thing.

    I believe it’s a big change on USA and something maybe unspected for some people, but he has made great stuff for this country and that can not be denied. If you are gonna tell us something bad about someone, I think you have to mention the good things also.

    I find it revolutionary that we have an African-American president. I feel as if many people that hate him are only acting on their racists motives, perhaps without even realizing it. I know that where I’m from, many people call him evil and the worst president we’ve ever had. Is it a coincidence that these are the same people that also view black people as thugs and criminals? I don’t think so. A lot of the Obama bashing comes from the south. Some may have valid points, but I think the majority of it is due to racial discrimination.

    President Obama has tried his best in the condition that America is in right now. I was not a fan of his Health Care system, due to it being incredibly forced and overpriced for many people. However, there were many great things he accomplished that cannot be denied. He may not have been the best president we have ever had, but he was not the worst. I bet he’s excited to get out of there and be with his family, without the pressures of being a prominent political figure.

  25. Just a few hours back, Wall street Journal published a story in which Obama pressed strongly for Asia trade deal. He is of the view that If US withdraws, then the dragon would fill up the vacuum, which could be an unprecedented setback for US. He wants to enact a free trade deal with Asia and strongly criticizes anti-globalization sentiments from Democrats.

    I strongly feel that Obama is pitching in with right sentiments and he just can’t be written off blindly. The Congress must pay heed to his sentiments and realize the merit in his argument.

  26. For the last couple of years president Obama has been in authority, it hasn’t been good years in my opinion. I might be a bit biased because of American Israeli relations, but it still is a bit difficult. I hope a change for the better will happen for the next election, whoever president will be next, I’m hoping he would change things around for the better and for the good of the USA.

    I could write a 20 page essay on why Obama is one of the worst leaders the United States has ever seen. He hasn’t produced a birth certificate, fell through on everyone of his promises, the list goes on and on. Although, I must say I’d prefer Obama over Hillary Clinton any day. If she’s elected I’m moving to Canada

  29. I never liked Obama, but the other people running against him were not much better. Obama made a lot of promises that everyone should have known he would not be able to keep. His whole Obama care thing does not work in the United States at all. And now I find it stupid that people are going to be penalized for not having health insurance last year. Not everyone feels the need to have health insurance because they have had no health problems most of their life and see it as a waste of money since they do not use it. He could have done a lot better and should not have made so many promises.

  30. He promised so much. There was no way he (or anyone) could deliver on his original campaign, or even the next one. I think the position of president is incredibly crazy to navigate…I can’t imagine trying.

    I think the rating says it all. Politicians spend too much time talking and not enough time listening. I believe true statesmen (if they really exist) spend time listening and learning. We can all learn–even from people in other political parties. As the poem says “even the fool has a tale to tell”

    I actually voted for Mitt Romney, so obviously President Obama wasn’t my preference. Now that I see what’s happened during this last four years, I’m glad Mitt wasn’t elected. Anyone who gets into this office is absolutely shredded no matter what they do, and since I like and respect Romney I would have hated to see that happen. As for Obama, I think he’s had his shining moments and his low points, but he is the President of the United States and we should respect him for that.

  35. I’m going to be launching a website that’s going to be somewhat like ripoff report it it’s going to be a political review site where the public and post Reviews about any politician in this country. It doesn’t matter whether they’re Democrat Republican or Independent. It’s time for us to kick them out of office when they continue to ignore their constituents and ignore the constitution and show lack of respect for this country. And I wonder all of the money that we borrowed from China that we give to other countries as foreign aid. Where is that money really going ? Who is going to pay that money back ? And where is the list of the countries that are receiving the money ? And how much money has each country received on a monthly basis for how many years. .? America better wake up or America will no longer exist very soon our president is out to destroy this country because he hates it he hates the Constitution and he ate everybody that stands for the constitution. People need to wake up and see what we have and act as if we do not have it and see how you will respond.

  36. Politicians are out to destroy the country they are only focused on financial gain for themselves. They don’t care about the American taxpayers. They don’t care about the constitution. They do not care about this country Once they get in the office they ignore their commitment. They just do not care. We should have term limits. We should have campaign limits as far as financial donations. All donations should be itemized and posted on the Internet for the constituents to see. And it also should be a lot easier to kick their butts out of office when they ignore the Constitution or ignore their constituents. It’s clear they are out to destroy the country at the taxpayers expense
