Not really, their plans and what they have done are totally different. Bush crashed the economy with two wars and too many tax cuts with too much spending; Obama is raising taxes on the rich and trying to cut spending to get the economy back up, which is improving slightly. It pisses me off that Obama drone strikes the **** out of everyone, but he didn't start two illegal wars. He's better than Bush, but he isn't a great president by any means. I'd say he's okay.

Well you know, rather people that enlisted to serve than civilians that have been living in war zones before they became war zones.

It's our war, not theirs. We should be the ones taking causalities, not them.

You obviously don't know what you are talking about. Economically, Obama has been just about the worst decision we could have made. Sure he won't waste our dollars funding a war, but he will waste it in other ways. For example, did you know that medicaid and medicare costs were expected to more than double in the next 10 years? Obamacare will actually make that figure even worse, and cause many other programs to provide fewer benefits, just so we can attempt to pay for it. His tax the rich plan will never work. People vastly overestimate how much the rich can contribute to taxes, and many people completely ignore the fact that we are on a marginal tax system. He definitely isn't trying to cut spending. In fact, his spending has been worse than Bushes, just on different items. He has taken credit for so many things that he did not do or that would have been done by any President--he was just lucky enough to be the on in office at the time. I will agree that he isn't the worst president, he isn't the best, but he isn't that much better than Bush, if he is at all.

tl;dr Obama is a terrible President. Maybe not the worst, but not much better than Bush if he is at all.

Obamacare has it's pros and cons. I'll be able to stay on my parent's insurance till I'm 26, that's very helpful. Obamacare doesn't even completely socialize healthcare, it really just puts more restrictions and regulations on insurance companies. I don't mind paying for other people's care either, I'm happy that they're getting help from me. Sharing is caring. Of course, like I said earlier, there are plenty of downsides as well.

Ask any doctor what they think of Obamacare, or any business owner who has to deal with it. It hurts a lot more than it fixes. There's a reason they wouldn't even let anyone read what was in the damn thing until it was passed.

Dude the rich are already having to pay more taxes because of Obama, you really want to ask them about their opinion of anything related to Obama? And what does a doctor's opinion of Obamacare even mean?

A doctor's opinion on health care is actually rather important, being that they are likely the most informed when it comes to health care in general. And for the most part the "rich" being affected by Obama's taxes are wealthy businessmen, not small-time doctors

Like I said, pros and cons. It helps a ton too.

Bush wasn't the only president who took part in crashing the economy. In fact, it wasn't even just America. It's the entire world economy that shriveled up and died over a course of 30 years.

Not saying Bush was a good president, he wasn't at all, but he wasn't the worst. We only notice how bad presidents are doing when the economy is bad - the president could be the biggest **** up of the century but be hailed as amazing because the economy is on a good track when he comes into power.

I don't think anyone could top Andrew Jackson.

This is a big problem with people. Half of the people think he's doing a great job (Which is not true) and the other half think he's satan/hitler/TheGuyThatCancelledFirefly all rolled into one (Which is equally untrue)

He's doing what needs to be done and doing it in a efficient way. Some good has happened in his presidency (Osama being killed, gay marriage has taken a good step, etc) but they weren't directly caused by him. He's a pretty good president, but not great.

This is probably the only good comment about obama i've ever seen on here.

At least someone gets it.
