The first African-American President.
Barack Obama kicks ass!
Probably the biggest disappointment in American history.
Me in mid-to-late 2008: Oh boy, I hope Barack Obama wins the election! He's going to do so much in the way of gay rights and health care and inflation and abolish all of Bush's terrible policies and he'll be the first black president and oh, the U.S. is going to be a total utopia! I can hardly wait!
Me in 2009: ...well, we still have the PATRIOT Act, gay couples still can't marry in most states, the national debt is rapidly increasing, and he's distracting the nation from everything going wrong with news fluff pieces about his family's dog. Oops. Should have voted third party!
The 1st black president. He was elected based on a concept of changing the political nature of the US government. However, since being elected, he has shown no change whatsoever from the way that things have always been. In actuality, his public comments have been strikingly similar to those of George W. Bush.
Is that George Bush or Barack Obama? It's kinda hard to tell...
A legit next person to run the country. He's better than Bush and should be respected as the first black president. But mother fuckers think that hes the messiah and everything is gonna solve every one of the worlds problems. Not happening, get over it bitches.
Logical smart person: I think this country is in for a lot of change, but I'm not sure theres one solution for the economy.
Stupid naive fucker: Barack Obama, thats your solution.
an excellent president. He is responsible for
1. fixing the economy
2. closing guantanamo bay
3. lifting the ban on stem cell research
4. last but not least...and i think this is the most important fact...Putting into action the best idea for health care reform we have had in decades. Not only will it provide healthcare for any american who cannot afford it but it will allow you to keep whatever health care plan you have now if you so choose. It is an excellent plan no matter what anyone says. Not only this but the plan will not be signed into action if it puts even $1 on the defecit and is designed to benefit every american out there...whether they prefer public health care...or privately run health care...it doesnt matter...you will have the choice!!! exciting...i know.
Simply put...President Barack Obama is the most excellent, morally conscious, smart, and caring president weve had in many many years.
Me: Did you hear about Barack Obama's health care reform?
some kid named tony: yeah fuck obama hes gonna shit all over the country and run it into the ground the socialist fuck!
Me: oh fuck you you worthless piece of shit...youre an ignorant asshole and dont know anything about whats really going on in this country.
tony: well fuck you too!
Me: no fuck you!!!
