    Of course he must be the greatest of all.

    He won the peace Nobel prize after having in the presidency for a few months having settled the Israel-Palestine issue

    He defeated the talibans with his surge.

    He closed Guantanamo Bay.

    Obama killed Osama having followed the due laws and processes... Hurray!!!

    He withdrew from Iraq which thankfully is now a very peaceful and democratic country with only a few suicide bombs upon the civilians and a few corrupt and murderous politicians.

    He along with Cameron and Sarkozy helped the Libyans achieve democracy.

    He threw Mubarak under the bus hence enabling the Egyptians achieve their democracy as well.

    He spoke with Ahmadinejad and achieved peace with Iran, who are now best buddies with Israel.

    He lifted the embargo on Cuba and even invited the Castro brothers for lunch at Camp David.

    He reigned in the bankers and their bonuses, those Occupy protestors were misguided and irrelevant.

    He passed the health care laws that will constitutionally oblige all Americans buy insurance from those charitable insurance companies who will definitely keep their premiums very low.

    He repealed the homophobic 'Don't ask don't tell' laws which will hopefully stop being implemented in the US military some time in the future.

    Under the Obama presidency Americans are very happy with their ultra-low unemployment, gas prices, debt and everbooming economy.

    All hail president Obama who happens to be the most qualified president ever and we should all pray that Americans will not be dumb enough to vote for that former Governor who is a mormon businessman with zero idea about the economy or business. Obama is best
    This!

    (I haven't read the whole thread but bear with me.)

    I can't believe so many people are completely tearing him to shreds! Sure, he may not be the BEST president so far but he is a very, very good one. He has acheived so much and cleared up alot of Bush's mess.
    I honestly think that his main problem is the fact that he is simply TOO intelligent for the American people. Bush said he wanted Bin Laden 'dead or alive' and Obama is just SO far above that level. His plans and achievements and personality are a winning combination but, as is the problem with every president, people only look at their bad points!

    ? Why? Because he's black?

    What has he done, really? Did I sleep through the day he got off his ass?

    I'd have rather seen Woody Wilson as president. He wouldn't be good, but at least he'd do something once in a while.

    It was nothing of the sort.

    Obamacare was never anything like the NHS.

    It is going to be a piece of legislation level headed people will curse in the future.
    Agreed. I hate it when people compare Obamacare to the NHS. There's a reason why the major figures of the American left - Ralph Nader, Dennis Kucinich, Bernie Sanders, etc - opposed it.

    You do realize that entire post was satirical? He never closed gitmo, he didn't receive the peace prize for israeli and palestein, the libyans haven't achieved democracy they are just as screwed as they were before. If you took a second look at the post and actually saw it for what it was and not what you want it to be you would realize (and god I hope this is true) that the entire post is ripping on him.

    As for our booming economy, Michigan has a 30% unemployment rate in detroit. when he entered office gas was on average $1.90/gal and now its closer to 4 on average, and his spending has nearly double that of the previous president that was in office for EIGHT YEARS.


    Also wtf do you mean he is "too intelligent" for most americans? Really, I know a lot of my fellow countrymen are morons, but the guy is a bold faced liar. He said his grandfather was one of the first people to be at auschwitz, which was in fact liberated by the soviets at the time.

    I made that post just to show how ironic the title of the thread is. I also really like Obama and would probably vote for him if I were American simply because of his likeability and image. But as for his achievements most of them are very lame (saved auto-industry, obamacare) . His ineffectiveness may be due to the economic and political system as well climate and probably his inexperience at the executive level before his presidential election. I do hope he gets reelected but however Romney will just be as competent (or moreso)and will probably just do as Obama(Remembeer Romneycare? and flip flops).

    I gave this a read, and those 'facts' the author uses could not be more wrong.

    Is that an Iranian flag I see? Pretty sure everyone in Iran despises the Obama administration, and I personally can see why.

    I thought this was interesting



    They have clips of obama campaigning against mandates when he was running against hillary

    Then he goes ahead and passes obamacare which forces everyone to buy insurance or face fines (and jail if you don't pay the fines)

    What a schmuck

    No, as much as I love Obama and his policies on a whole, I think it was J.F Kennedy who ultimately prevented the Cuban missile crisis from destroying the world who deserves the title as greatest president.

    One name:
    Bradley Manning.

    Even if you think he's guilty, what the hell happened to due process?

    And also, so much for shutting down detention camps such as Guantanamo bay.

    I think that even if he was, it would not be a tremendous achievement. The bar is set too low.

    Unfortunately, it doesn't really matter what people think of him, he will win the next election by default as he won't face any credible opposition.

    I think he'd make a better CEO of a large corporation. At least that way he'd have power.

    Are you seriously judging him over his speeches? Admiring him for the art of articulacy? He's a president, not a writer. You have to judge him over what he's actually done, not said. Anyone can sweet talk.

    P.S he is DEFINITELY better than Bush.

    JFK was horribly overrated. How can a president who was in charge 2 years and 10 months be the greatest president ever?

    The only reason is because he's popular because he gives great speeches and had a fit wife. LBJ was the one who past some of the most historic legislation America's ever had (despite the Vietnam war), I'd rank him before JFK. it's charisma thing with JFK that makes him popular.

    Oh and FDR easily should be winning this.
