President Obama-
Posted 5/28/10
The Noble Peace Prize was going too far, and since I don't really pay attention to what the president dose (or care for that matter) and since politics is not my strong point, I can't really be too judgmental, for I would only sound like an idiot, but sometimes I do wonder if some of this dislike towards the president has something to do with his race. Just saying.

He was inaugurated in january.,..its may...its a 4-year term...Calm down with that, nobody can do every single thing in 5 months


You would be surprised what someone with as much power as he has can do in a month yet alone 5 months.

What about the bush administration and their shortcomings


Just to be clear you do know he has spent more money in a year and a half in office then Bush Jr., Clinton, and Bush Sr. all three did over their entire terms combined right? He literally more than doubled the National Debt, average American income has gone down by something like 3%, and we haven't even started paying for the 1 trillion dollar health care plan yet.


ya im pretty pissed about that... that really means all of us who are young now will be paying/dealing with all this later. how very responsible of the current/previous president to give us such a great debt!

Little known accomplishments of the Obama administration. First of all I'm disappointed like everyone that he can't or doesn't keep the corporate capitalists like Wall street fatcats and such in line and has only slowly been able to turn the recession around. I don't like the way he is handling the border issues. He like all presidents seem to downplay the issue of illegal immigration and the threat of this on our souther borders. Furthermore, I'm annoyed that the rest of America doesn't give a crap either. They think it's right to boycott an entire state than stand together against a growing threat.

Now that I got my complaints out of the way I'll state my kudos to Obama and his crew. Canceling F22 contract instating the F35 contract. The F35 is 1/3 the price of a F22 and although has much shorter range it's every bit as powerful and even more maneuverable than the F22. thanks Obama for saving the US military tons of money by scrapping that outrageous waste of money the F22.

Second, PGS(Prompt Glabal Strike). For those of you that don't know what this is, it's an alternative to nuclear weapons. It can strike faster and more accurately than a tactical nuke as well as have the same destructive force as a 2 megaton warhead but without the nuclear fallout. It's so powerful that Obama has had to sign in his nuke dismantling agreement with Russia that he must remove an additional nuclear platform for each one of these we put into deployment. Why is this so kewl? The reason why nukes are bad is because of the fallout after detonation. Target areas and neigboring countries would feel the effects for centuries, the target area would not be able to sustain life for hundreds of years. This is the only thing that makes a US president hesitant in pressing the button, there will simply be less hesitation and more kick@$$ from the US from this point forward.

Thirdly, this is probably something that all US presidents have done thanks to Vangard there are documentaries that bring this to the public eye. Supporting element militias(aka Rebel factions). As you know thanks to a bunch of laws and public opinion the US can't just go deploying troops where it wants and it can't go invade everyone that we don't like. So what do we do? We "plant" seeds of dissidence. We help local "militias with "grants" to help them against common foes. As of now there are 25 "nonviolent" militia factions that we aid in Iran and several violent ones that we denounce publically.

Example, Klevichstan(nice quaint country between Pakistan and Afghanistan) It's a key military foothold that the US must keep so that we can keep funneling supplies from Pakistan into Afghanistan. This country is still under Russian occupation and we pay a generous rent to keep a base there. Recenly, the Prime Minister wanted to kick us out, but the Obama administration agreed to double it's rent of the military base as well as public comment its support of the current Prime Minister. Currently, the residents of the country were unhappy but there was no organizing or talk about protest. These people are of Asian decent and live quiet happy lives with some minor complaints( taxes, civil rights etc..) Then all of a sudden the Prime Minister is seiged by protesters and the police force overwhelmed in less than 6 hours. The Prime Minster fled the country and now the people are in control of the government and the US military currently occupies the base as always, but now it's rent free. Obama released a statement expressing his regret and his intention to not interfere. Thanks rebels, you rock.

FDR did a whole lot of stuff in only 100 days...

to me obama isn't living up to what i expected of him. he's a bit weak... by that i mean that he isn't very aggressive or bold. he's definitely a good speaker and all, but his leadership abilities are lacking especially when compared to the last democratic president, bill clinton.

For the most part, he's performed exactly as I voted him in for. I enjoy watching him carry out the role I desired.

As for fixing the American economy, I admit there's very few tangible things. But from what I'm seeing, I think out of all of the candidates none could really be doing any better. I think the economy is outright broken, beyond repair. Every human needs to do their part to get it corrected, but I think human nature is going to get in the way. It looks like it can take only a few individuals to screw it up for many, thus such a state will continue to exist for a long time. I'd even think nearly two decades, unless a terrible war breaks out.

I often regret the form of our government. Our voting system seems imbalanced, and I dislike the way congress works. It seems to take far too long to make decisions that are needed to obtain results.

In otherwords, I'm saying the big things like economy are beyond the President's power. So overlooking the impossible, I couldn't favor any more the role the President is performing.


I also pity the president as 100% of them are hated, plenty often by the people that voted for him. From Washington to Roosevelt to the current Obama, none have been without being hated.

Don't care since he's still in his first year as president. & the Peace Prize is not a big deal, even though he earned it for a weird reason.

People need to calm down and let the man work. "Ooooh he's spending more." What do you expect? Money to just come falling out of the trees? To make money you need to use money. And those bashing on how jobs are less now need to check their facts. I'm pretty damn sure jobs are better now than they were, lets say gee, during the recession? People are putting way too much blame on the guy for something he didn't cause. If you think you can do better, go run for president and prove that Obama really did deservingly get his title as president. I'll even vote for you if you say you're from crunchyroll, how's that?! And the Nobel Peace Prize was kind of lame, but whatever. People that should be winning awards don't all the time, it's not the end of the world.

Oh boy..we just opened a riled can of worms here, didn't we? Everyone is entitled to their own right about how Obama's been doing, whether you love or hate him, you have to RESPECT what he has been doing. Now think about it, ever since he became president, most of the country wants to see him fail, and you want to know why? (And yes I'm going there because this is what I feel so drop the rocks people..)He's the first Black President of the United States and for decades, they been looked down upon and being told that "you a nigger and that's all you gonna be, you gonna live one and die like one" and other such nonsense... C'mon folks, if I'm right then you can agree that's why most of the nation's been in an uproar. Another thing that I have to say about him is that he flat out told US that we're gonna be struggling and we MUST persevere in order for us to get back on our feet. Now how many Presidents do you know that had the confidence to say we're fucked up but we'll press on?
Now isn't the time to be criticizing what the man does, who he is or what racial background he came from. That's petty and we, out of the many ethnicity that we came from should NOT be judgmental about him. This land that we live on is made from the countless lives of our ancestors that died for our sake so we don't have to be running in fear because of them being different. We should support him the best way we can...we keep on living and doing what we can while we're able to do it.

Okay I think I'd said enough...I'm heading back to the Tales of Legendia and continue to kick ass

I understand what your trying to say, but FDR was a president in a time of depression and war, were going trough a reccesion that happens every few years or so, as history shows that the US almost always goes into a reccession every few years or so, then bounces back up for another few years, you shouldnt blame obama because the goverment is already screwed up before he was even elected

I hope you realize that the belief that he's going to push the country into Communism is a view point, too? Idk, I just don't think you can ask for opinions and be like "UNLESS YOUR OPINION IS ____, THEN SHUT UP LOL".

Also, I don't know, I like Obama, still. I mean, he does have flaws and I can see why people would even think he's a bad president, but it's not like running a country is easy and that he can get everything done in a day. I think people need to cut him so more slack, to be honest. But this is coming from someone who knows jack shit about politics, so that probably makes my thoughts invalid, lol.

But he still is trying his best to save California and all the world. But i dont get why that he wont lose.
