Barrack Obama is coming up to two years in office soon and I was wondering what Sharenators' opinions were of him. Is he a good/bad president overall? is he doing what he said would? Is he better than Bush? etc...

I'd like to say that I don't want any arguments but that would be a lie, I love to see people argue! :P

So what do you think?

    He could be doing worse, but he could also be doing better. He should have concentrated on things that were more easily doable before wasting an entire year trying to solve the health care crisis. Small things that still make a big difference like credit card reform. Iraq is still not stable enough to stand on it's own, though they are trying, and Obama at least has still left a security force. Then when trying to enact health care reform he should have done a better job of making sure that the bill was easily understandable by the voter, not some 2,000+ page monstrosity undoubtably loaded with special interests.

    That said, a good amount of the problems facing him are left over from the Bush Administration. The hugely unpopular bailout of $800,000,000,000 was enacted by Bush. The "Don't tax but still spend" attitude of most New Age Republicans is to blame for the huge deficit. The deregulation of the Finance Industry so that banks could make riskier loans hugely contributed to the severity of the economic crisis. The recession still probably would have happened, that is the nature of a free market system, but it wouldn't have been the massive collapse that DID happen.

    I think that most politicians nowadays are simply too afraid of their respective political bases to actually get anything done. They only listen to the stupid 20% of people who each want members of the other party imprisoned. The current polls out show that the massive majority of people want the parties to compromise, yet no politicion wants to step outside their retoric because the dumbasses have somehow gotten it into their heads that it would be more politically suicidal to actually get shit done with the other pary than it would be to sit there shouting at each other while the whole country goes to ruin. I would have hoped that after the Midterms were over they would begin to compromise, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

    Let's hope your country isn't that moronic, but judging by the midterms I'd say things are looking bleak.

    He has my respect as our president, but I don't agree with a lot of his policies. However, he is a comic book fan and a Star Wars fan, so he's alright in my book.
