    Will you miss Obama?

    How Obama will be remembered after his term ends? I think many people will remember him as a man of strong will, the defender of democracy who stopped the Iraq war and legalized gay marriages.
    But I won't remember him as a good president. After he withdrew troops from Iraq terrorist captured American weapons and now they are roaming free in the desert torturing and killing people. Obama signed Iran nuclear deal and betrayed Israel which was our most import ally in the region. He is hated by half of the country and there is not a single good thing he did for those who lean towards right. I don't understand those people who think that Obama did everything right.

    He will have his loyal followers and people who despise him. Our nation is polarized in many areas. I personally don't know but a few that like him. Probably a 50-1 ratio of those that can't stand him. The couple of women I know that adore him, one thought her parents would get free healthcare. Curious of what she thinks now. I don't miss Bush and sure won't miss obama.

    Can you give me a reason why I should like or respect the guy? Health care? I could provide high end health insurance to my employees - until the ACA came in - now they have substandard higher priced state Obama shit. When it went over 700 a person, I had to drop the benefit.

    The mid-east? Shit Obama is the father of ISIS, Alienated long standing allies in Europe and the Mid-east and started a nuclear arms race in the mid-east.

    The economy? 48 million still on food stamps.

    Just what are Obama's successes?

    The nuclear arms race was started by Bush when he deposed Saddam. The withdrawal was done according to military practice in regards to sustaining a new regime. The economy went from a slimy gooey morass to a sustainable growth with the dow rising from 10000 to 17000 and with no assistance from repubs. McConnell even said he wanted to make Obama a one term president no matter what it takes to block his program.


    Having healthcare is not that expensive if you use non profit medical organizations.

    Oh please. It wouldn't matter what I said, you would still hate the guy and cry about how he is a "failure".

    Obama is leaving the country in a significantly better situation than he recieved it in. If you don't think the economy is drastically better than it was in 2008 you are fucking delusional and flat out full of shit. Millions of people who did not have healthcare before now have access. Your anecdotal musings don't change that fact. We ended the neverending war in Iraq. We couldn't stay there forever, it was a waste of money and the lives of American soldiers. It sucks that ISIS has taken hold, but they wouldn't exist if we never went there in the first place. Staying in Iraq I defintely would be pointless. They did not want the government we forced upon them. There is no more a nuclear arms race in the Middle East than there was before we left that fucking quagmire. In fact the Iran deal will give inspectors constant access to their nuclear sites and will hopefully lead to a modernizing of Iran and a stabilization of some of the relationships in the region. Under his watch we also ended the pointless embargo on Cuba and ended archaic discrimination of homosexuals in the military and ultimately saw marriage equality.

    I guess I can see why why cona would hate all of that. They would much prefer the economic collapse and two clusterfuck wars that the last POTUS left us with.

    Anyway you try to spin the pie, Obama left the country in a better state than he inherited it. That counts as a success to me.

    Obama isn't going anywhere. He's a Rock Star. He will be even more in demand and in charge.

    No way is he going to become some hermit on some ranch in the middle of no where.
