Since becoming President in 2009, Obama's presidency has been controversial, to say the least. He came in during the worse Economic Crisis since the Depression, with soaring unemployment, and enacted several controversial measures, such as the Automotive and Bank Stimulus, as well as try to pass Health Care Reform and other reforms to the system, which are all of arguable quality. In addition, he has also withdrawn troops from Iraq and closed Gitmo, without withdrawing troops from Afghanistan, or closing down our other sort-of secret prisons.

Therefore, leaving aside all the rhetoric about 'Obama is a Socialist' or 'The Republicans are to be blamed for everything', and all that, what is your opinion on President Obama and his presidency thus far.

I suppose that I don't have any specific opinion of him. Since he's the president of the States, not mine, I share no particular interest of profiling him. Nevertheless I have to state that he hasn't been a losing leader nor has he been all that good either. That's all I can say. I hope that Obama will not turn out to be a failure as a president: for the future of the States will also, most likely, be the future of my country.

Q: Let's see, does private enterprise still exist under Dear Leader Comrade Obama?

A: Well,there's still bloody Walmart and bloody Target, hardly State-Controlled Enterprises.

Q: Does Obama support Worker's Ownership of the Means of Production?

A: If he did, he wouldn't have bailed out Private Business with our Tax Money, and left them to do what they will from there.

Q: Does Obama want to abolish all class distinction?

A: No, not really, raising the tax of Rich People is not eliminating all class.

Q: Does Obama advocate a violent overthrow of the Bourgeois and replace it with a Democratic Proletarian Dictatorship, you know, what the whole Manifesto of the Communist Party was all about?

A: You can't say that he's putting Americans into Concentration Camps, stealing their guns, and then say he is also advocating the violent uprising of the American people against the rich minority. The fact that he didn't do either, the former unproven and simply idiotic and the latter also disproven in that he has not publicly called people to revolt, and, in fact, was partially culpable in the suppression of the Occupy Movement.

From the above, it can be inferred that Obama is not a Communist.

Here's the thing, people, idiots unlearned in actual Economic Theory, like to call Keynesian Economics 'Socialism', which shows only their ignorance and who says as such, or claims that Obama is a Communist is simply engaging in meaningless rhetoric.

But don't take my word, take the word of Mr Richard D. Wolff , Economist, and actual Marxist:

If Fellow Communists are disavowing him, maybe he may not be a Communist afterall.

I thought you were an anarchist, why do you care what anyone thinks about a public servant; good or bad.

Because, I don't know, he's the fellow in power at the moment.

This is mostly a response to several post on the President, which claims, amongst other things, that he is part of the Illuminati, he's a lizard person, and he is working under the rule of the NWO.

I was hoping that, by starting this thread, the people of this site can reasonably discuss Obama, rather than go through a bunch of paranoid humbug.

One one reads this, one is struck by the profound vacuity of thought, and singularity and totality of its puerility, and how it nobly embodies the character of its author. The inanity, the imbecility, the idiocy, the irrelevancy, all brought together into a single line, communicating, like the Noble Aphorism of K'ong Tseu, or the mystic poetry of the Tao Tö King, of the various other wisdoms of the Orients, an abyssal sea of nothingness with exceptional economy of letters. There is but a single way to more effectively communicate such thoughtlessness- to not speak at all.

I can't believe this puppet boy with the fox avatar or whatever the hell it is is still spouting off his delusions. I really can't wait until your whole world crashes down all around you when you found out the truth. You have got to be the most blind person I have ever come across on the internet.

And you use the internet to spend quality time with your fellow conspiracy nutters. Say hello to the Transdimensional Lizard People for me.

Obama's national debt isn't the problem its the fact that he spends it irrationally if he was using the debt money for infrastructure or creating real jobs not on welfare and war.

The fact he lies to us about his health care plans

Other than that i'm fine with him i just don't like how everyone hates George W Bush and appraise Obama for no reason at all except that he was the first black president.

It should not be forgotten, though, that Government debt is not actually an indicator of how well the economy is doing- for example, under Roosevelt, we intentionally ran up a temporary debt to stimulate the economy, and under Reagan, Bush, Sr. , and Bush, Jr., we also intentionally ran up debt to supplement the money loss from their Tax Cut, which was intended to encourage the wealthy to invest in the economy. So, national debt is not necessarily a bad thing.

Oh, and note that the debt is never negative or zero...
