    He promised change but delivered little. and now he is backing hillary instead of bernie because he fears that bernie will bring real change and outshine him.

    Utter scum.

    People think he's "amazing" and so "charismatic", but others, like me, see right through his lies.

    Honestly I'd love Trump or even Bernie to take over.

    Says the girl kissing Obama's ass.

    Trump might be a bigot but he's smart, blunt and pretty much what the US wants and needs. Bernie isn't far off either, but he's old.

    He's the first successful black president in America. He's not perfect but he isn't as bad as some haters make him out to be

    How can you call him "successful" lol... he's done more harm than good.

    MLK is still rolling in his grave.

    Good:
    - He is presidential. Speaks well and with authority, has a good personality etc.
    - Pardoned non-violent drug offenders

    Bad:
    - Foreign policy is all over the place (not as bad as Bush but that's not exactly difficult).
    - Obamacare has resulted in the cost of healthcare skyrocketing for the middle class.
    - Government still spends too much money and corporation tax is still too high. Failed to deal with the debt.
    - Gun control had resulted in more people buying guns and will barely stop any gun-related crimes

    Overall bad imo.

    Title should be: What are your views on Barack Obama

    Not:
    whatare your vies on Barack Obama

    Three mistakes:

    Capital letter
    Missing space
    And incorrect spelling

    Glad to help

    Don't care n don't know too much about him since I don't live in the U.S. So he doesn't affect me. But it's good u guys have a coloured president, I wish Britain would do the same, but the UK would never have a coloured prime minister

    He's feckless, lazy, completely inept and prefers playing golf to actually being president.

    Pretty much this lol


    He has a very statesmanlike manner and he has brought some level of sanity to the US on certain issues, such as gay-marriage, don't ask don't tell etc (although gay rights is a hard thing to **** up unless you're a hardcore Christian bigot) and drug laws.


    The guy is a total joke when it comes to the hard stuff, his flipflopping on guns has lead to paranoid right-wingers buying even more guns.


    Then he was all, 'I love Muslims, better expand the drone policy'


    Then there was that stuff which went down in Libya where Qaddafi was removed and he claiming it was a great success, only for the American embassy to be stormed and his diplomat was killed in an extremely brutal way, by the people he was claiming were friendly, democratic liberals and now Islamic State have expanded into that region.


    He was against Assad, created a red line which Assad broke only for him to fail to back up his warnings and remove Assad. His failure to act on Assad probably did contribute to the rise of Islamic State, but given that Islamic state represents more of a threat to the west than Assad and the fact they're enemies he was pretty much clueless as to how to deal with the situation, 'Do we attack? Is Assad on our side now? Hey are those the weapons we gave the so called FSA they're using? I have no idea what I'm doing.jpg'


    People only like him because he's half Black, it's pathetic, Clinton will be just as bad and people will vote for her just because she's a woman and it massages their liberal fee-fees, rather than because she has any level of competence or moral integrity.

    Obama has dragged the West into yet more wars that we have no business being involved in. He has helped to facilitate the rise of ISIS by destabilising countries like Syria and Libya by stoking civil unrest and funding and arming rebel groups in those regions. He has killed thousands of innocent civilians with illegal drone strikes across the Middle East. He has directly violated the US constitution by allowing mass surveillence to be carried out on Americans, to name just a few misdeeds.

    He get's **** done alright. Just a shame it's generally the wrong kind of ****. If he really is the best president America can offer then I truly fear for the future of your nation.
