    Positive:

    - Obamacare (despite many Americans were opposed to it)
    - Being black (is that a positive thing?)

    Neutral:

    - Gun controls; he really did try but Americans are a special breed when it comes to guns and logic...
    - LGTB rights etc; tried to move things in the right direction but still varies massively depending on the State.
    - Economy; 2008 crash probably wasn't really his fault, it was the years before when the reckless mistakes were made. Seems to be doing ok although not perhaps as well as people would have hoped 8 years ago.

    Negative:

    - Foreign policy; really quite directionless. Middle East in a much mess than when he started, Ukraine/Crimea, Russia/Putin seemingly allowed to do what it wants. On the plus side at least he didn't start any needless wars...

    As a non-American, did he do/not do anything else?

    Negative
    Irrelevant
    Negative, arguably breaking his oath
    Trying isn't good enough
    Neutral, arguably benefits are because of when he was around because he was around
    Negative

    Aside from being the first black president I think Obama's time in office has largely been unremarkable. He tried rather than did, despite it not always being his fault.

    Prevaricater. Utterly woeful foreign policy made all the more insidious. It his attempts to seem not-so.
