After 8 years of the Obama presidency, I think this is a great time to share opinions about what has he done for America?

When we look back on the great democrat presidents, we can think of FDR and his legacy of huge infrastracture projects and restricting the banking sector in the aftermath of the great depression; Kennedy and LBJ and their legacy of the civil rights legislations and the race to the moon and the failed attempt at "the great society"; even Carter and Clinton with their war everywhere all of the time foreign policy and Affirmative action and handouts. So, how about Obama?

I think Obama owes the people who elected him into office an apology. He has given us RomneyCare rebranded as ObamaCare instead of a single payer system like Canada and UK. He has done nothing for the black community. Where are the handouts? Where are the billions of federal government funding to rebuild the projects? Where is the positive racial profiling in policing (like affirmative action in jobs)? He has done nothing for energy security. Instead of securing the oil fields in the middle east with stable dictators who like us, he has funded coups and revolutionaries and terrorists and completely destabilized the region. He has done nothing to restrict the banks so another bubble doesn't happen. And he has done nothing in immigration reform. Where was the general amnesty a lot of the illegals were talking about back in '08? He has done nothing in gun control. After Port Arthur massacre in Australia, PM Howard said ban guns, and a few months later it was done. After Sandy Hook massacre here, Obama went on TV and cried like a baby for an hour, then he did nothing about it. Federal minimum wage? Forget about it. Climate change? May as well be a hoax. Man on Mars? In your dreams.

All of the people on the right talking about "thank Obama" for this or for that, they are all wrong. If Obama actually had the guts to do something, then maybe he could have screwed up something. But as it is, there is simply no case to be made, because he did nothing for 8 years. Just sat back and pretended everything that doesn't get done was all the fault of the republicans in congress.

Why do you post stuff like in anime forum like Crunchyroll? You should go to places like Fox News or CNN if you want to have a debate about political stuff. I think most members came here to talk about anime & manga&the likes. Leave politic out of it.
