Why is Obama the Best/Worst President ever?

I hear he is the best and the worst. From both sides politically.


I got a lotta things I love about the guy but a ton of stuff I ain't too happy about as well.

Healthcare, the wars (sort of), the economy, the push for higher wages (Success with Walmart) are all things that are great....

NSA, drone attacks, bailouts, TPP are a few things I don't care much for.

1. What bailouts are you referring to? Saving the auto industry was a damn good thing.

2. Given the absolute hatred of the majority opposition,

He has done a great job. A better health insurance system (not better than single payor), he got us out of Iraq/Afghanistan (well, mostly). He is trying to do tje right thong on immigration and he has done this with a majority that hates him fpr doing the right thing.

Too bad we, the voters of this country, elect moron regressives...but until they wake up, no progressive Democrat will ever change the direction of this country. And promoting loser candidates for POTUS won't help, either.

4. He's been a pretty SOP politician playing it safe and to the center.

 

His pledge to escalate the war in Afghanistan during his campaign was a deal-breaker for me.

6. His supporters are the worst ever.

2010 is when they really needed him.

Nope. And we'll pay the price for decades.
