Achievements:
1. Have one single piece of legislation, Obamacare which was and still is a disaster.
2. Embarrassed America with his apology tour. Did not stand up against murderous dictatorship regimes at the UN. Almost lost our friendship with Israel.
3. Lost hundreds of thousands of manufacturing jobs. Said you needed a magic wand to bring them back.
4. Removed work requirement for welfare, oversaw record high welfare enrollment during his presidency.
5. Bailed out by the Fed with near zero interest rates throughout his presidency, still couldn’t achieve a single year with 3% GDP growth. Said that this is the new normal.
6. While Trump is only trolling, Obama is a true narcissist who practiced dictatorship. He weaponized IRS against conservative groups, used FBI to spy on political opponents, jailed his critics.
7. No leadership. He bypassed congress and ruled by executive orders, all of which are now being rolled back.
8. Broke multiple records for number of pages of regulation.
9. Unable to make any deal with hostile countries without giving them truckload of cash. Gave Iran money for hostages. Exchanged one treasonous defector for four terrorists. Trump rescued hostages for free.
10. Couldn’t defeat ISIS for years despite having the most powerful military on earth.
11. Doesn’t know how to pronounce “Radical Islamic Terrorists”

    Obama is and was one of the most popular Presidents in history. He's still, in 2018, way way more popular than Trump. When asked, far more Americans name Obama as the best President during their lifetime than any other. The other top choices were Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan.

    If Presidents could run for a third term Obama would have won a landslide and we never would have heard of President Trump or candidate Clinton. Obama would have eclipsed them both and they would be forgotten.

      Obama won also because he’s charismatic.

      Obama is consistently ranked as one of the best looking president in history. Obama’s speeches are some of the best speeches in modern history. Unlike the dotard that can’t even put together a complete sentence.

      Obama have shown the best personal character whenever he appears publicly. He treats people below him equally as human beings (see photo of fist bumping the janitor and dancing with children). He treats his lady like a true gentleman while the dotard treats his like some worn shoe to be discarded.

      Obama has the personal refinement of royalty while the dotard like to imagine himself as royalty.

      A President isn’t a legislator, so there goes about half your “points.”

      @safrascats
      Half his points are invalid because the president is not a legislator?

      Hmmm. Explain how. 🤔

      IBM - Because to pass legislation you need congress to pass the bills for the Pres to sign them. And with the turtle ‘leading’ the senate (2014-2016) and the republican house (2010-2016) that was the height of obstruction, more than what any president has faced.

    Obama's way better than Trump. Guy got the economy out of the financial crisis and oversaw the longest bull run in history, full employment, etc.

    So much more popular than Trump, too, would still be President if it weren't for those pesky term limits.

      Nope. 0 % interest rate, <3% growth.

      Not sure what you mean by "nope". What I said is the fact. There is a reason why Americans like Obama so much more than Trump.

      Guidance from business is the economy is about to contract. 3% growth will be remembered as the good times, winter is coming.

      Yeah, that reason is the mass media will turn any news negative on trump and vice versa on Obama.

      Obama was popular because Jay Z liked him. That’s all that matters to some people. Seems like a nice guy but was a horrible president.

    I think you are too one-sided in your views and you missed a lot of good points that Obama was able to accomplish like: saving US auto and banking industries from a total collapse, reducing unemployment rate, enabling more people to have healthcare, investing in new technologies (think clean energy), stock market was bullish for most of his presidency, improving relationship with Cuba, imposing sanctions on Russia, etc, etc.

      Problem is, he’s still campaigning. Time to expose him by adding OP’s points to school curriculums. It’ll kill his stupid legacy pretty quickly.

    He's also an antisemite. Met with vile bigot Louis Farrakhan and gave Iran a path to destroy Israel

      I think you got it backwards, now that Trump pulled out of the Iran deal, Iran can now start manufacturing nukes again and become a much bigger threat to Israel than ever before.

      Israel wanted to dump that deal more than anybody else. I think they have the most interest in being right in this case.

      and yet it is Trump who is not welcome at a synagogue, I wonder why?
      Nov 3, 2018

      Except that he was welcomed at the synagogue. I’m guessing you got lied to. Stop watching CNN.

      The rabbis welcomes him. Ignorant democrats looking to use a tragedy to score political points did not invite him. And people wonder why the media is no trusted less and less.

    What a nice well articulated bullshit. All your points are subjective missing supporting facts.

    • IBM / Eng 👁🐝Ⓜ️
      You mean they are all points that CNN glossed over and never covered.

      Let me ask you. Did you honestly believe that Iran would honor the Nuclear deal?

      Could you imagine if Trump bypassed congress and made a back room deal to ship billions of dollars to a country that is the number one state sponsor or terror? Obama was given a free pass on that by the press. I was pissed at Trump for not revoking that deal day one of his presidency. But at least he got around to it.

    Let’s just say, he was a lame duck president during his second term and that spoke volumes. During his tenure, liberal extremists and socialism increased. The stupid gender free bathroom rule and how he threatened schools to adopt, he was powerless against gun violence, recreational marijuana became more legalized, heroin addiction increased, and there was opioid crisis taking roots. The stupid socialist AA rule also became reality. The liberal cities such as San Fran and Seattle become shit holes for homelessness, drug addicts and gender confused. So much glory for extreme liberalism indeed.

    As he got his Nobel peace prize, he continued to throw more bombs around Middle East. American leadership completely failed there and in Crimea.

    He was weak, a hypocrite, and good for nothing but lip service.

    His excellent lip service continues to hypnotize people around the world, but people who have woken up from his lies voted Democrats out of both senate and house. Liberal Democrats were destroying traditional value systems and became too extreme.

    Trump is a damn bad talker and a shitty President, but what else can American political system offer? It’s been morally bankrupt for a long time.

    Obama was OK. In my mind he was kind of a failure as a progressive. Should have:

    1. Not bailed out the banks
    2. Jailed those guilty of 2008 fraud
    3. Pushed public option for healthcare
    4. Pulled us out of Afghanistan + Iraq
    5. Massively decreased size of military
    6. Created a second New Deal
    7. Fought for reelection of Dems in every single race
    8. Not tried to give olive branch to McConnell and his ilk
    9. Fought to end gerrymandering
    10. Bumped Clinton out of the cabinet
    11. Not bailed out auto manufacturers
    12. Let Malia go to burning man
