A well-intentioned president who, contrary to what the disaffected right-wing would have us believe, has actually made many accomplishments despite the craptacular state of affairs he inherited from his predecessor.
A president who (perhaps unjustifiably) has made sincere efforts at bipartisanship despite the unrelenting barrage of lies and bullshit from the right-wing attack machine who's only goal is to tear down his presidency at all costs, and the outright refusal of congressional republiturds to consider any of his ideas, even if said ideas originally garnered bipartisan support.
Notable accomplishments include:
Passage of the controversial stimulus act, which despite it's flaws, helped to curb job loss, improved our infrastructure, and saved many state governments from going bankrupt. Most economists believe we would be worse off without it.
Helped turn the economy around (the Dow was only in the 6000s when Obama took office)
Ordered the strike that killed Bin Laden, and implemented the drone strike policy that killed Bin Ladin's number two man and sent Al Qaeda running.
Passed health care reform, something many presidents have tried to do and failed. While it could have done more to bring down costs and less to appease the insurance industry, it was the best we could get in today's political climate, and it does bring America closer to the developed world in terms of health care.
And to the losers who are messing up the votes on the Obama defs, kindly fuck off and get a life.
To everyone else: don't believe any of the vote totals on these pages. They are being hacked! Yesterday, Obama-hating def 6189985 written by Star Destroyer 2 had 15 thumbs down and 0 up. Today (as of this writing) it magically has 60 thumbs up!! Likewise, def 6183602 written by coffee_lover had 16 thumbs up and 0 down, until today. Now it's 16 up and 47 down. I smell a Kochroach.
The Messiah for brain-dead Democrats.
No matter what he says, no matter what he does, they'll worship the great Obama.
An acronym standing for
Q: What was the result of the 2008 election?
Has no real experience, because most of his time as "senator" was spent campaigning for his own election to President. Is praised for his "ability to bring change", although what kind of change he will bring will most likely surprise the mindless white liberal drones that are blindly supporting him (black rule and power over whites).
Has implied he wants to spend billions more of OUR money to third-world (read - African) countries, which WE DON'T HAVE (HELLO?), and which (let's be honest) will never be used to actually benefit their countries.
Most people are voting for him because (a)they wish to impress their black friends (won't happen) or (b)if they help bring the 1st black President into office, they will get a "Get Out Of Racism Free" card (not necessarily true, and pretty sad if that's their only goal this election).
These same people will come crying at Ron Paul's feet to lead them after the subsequent fiasco.
I am going to vote for Obama, because he represents CHANGE and HOPE. Even though I don't know a thing about how he means those terms.
No real definition for this word is possible at this time. Check back in 4 years by then a consensus by have formed. Each person projects his personal beliefs and values onto this word, and a standard meaning isn't possible at this time.
Is Obama Ronald Reagan, or Jimmy Carter.
Clueless. Switches opinions on topics during the same conversation more than once. Has only been a Senator since 2005. Horrible at giving speeches without a teleprompter. Usually stutters without it. The biggest liberal in congress. Wants change, but never clearly states what change he wants. Believes that McCain has been in Washington way too long, but selects a vice presidential candidate that has been in Washington longer than McCain (TEN more years). The typical Liberal.
I hope that Obama isn't our next president.
A New World Order puppet from one of the two party system. The political system is not a Democracy because they don't allow third party candidates to debate. By the way Obama wasn't the only black person running in the 2008 election. Obama is basically GW Bush who went to the tanning salon.
1. No withdrawel plan from Iraq.
2. Advocate of North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO)The butchers of Kosovo/Serbia during the late 1990's
