I am an Independent and I have mixed feelings about him, some good and some bad. He DIDN'T kill Osama Bin Laden, but he does get credit for giving the orders to do it. Seal Team 6 did and I find it a bit messed up that some Democrats are giving more praise towards Obama then to our own troops who actually did the killing, and some Liberals ( I know not all Democrats are Liberal) complain that Osama should have received a fair trial/ chance which I find utterly ridiculous ( yeah, because the thousands of people who died because of him didn't deserve a fair chance at life, either, right?) ... But that is another story. I do commend Obama for getting us out of the Iraq War, though, because that war was obviously nonsensical and a waste of time/money, so I am extremely grateful that he had chosen to do that. I also agree that some jobs have been added, but it is happening at a slow pace. Plus, our economy isn't getting better, lol... I don't know who told you that. It isn't getting worse either, though, and we will be able to get out of it when Europe fixes it's own debt problem. I, personally, do not feel that he is doing enough about our illegal immigration problem ( which is a problem, you have to admit) so I think he needs to let states decide on their own illegal immigration policies if he isn't going to do anything about it- let's be fair here. And yeah... But based on the Republican candidates, I am pretty sure that Obama will be elected for another term in office next year. But I didn't like his comment that: "to not judge him by the almighty, but to judge him by his competition"- pretty much means that we have to pick the lesser of two evils. America deserves the best and shouldn't be forced to settle on someone that isn't "as bad" as the other candidates... The only Republican candidate that I would consider to be a good choice is Ron Paul, because I agree with his ideas on Health Care and he isn't as "war hungry" and the other candidates are. I mean, they were suggesting that we should invade Iran for a stupid drone, lol... Come on now.
Overall, the biggest reason why I like Obama is that he is more moderate than he is Liberal, which is the reason why some Liberals and Socialists are not willing to support him anymore. They claim Obama isn't "Liberal" enough, which I see as a good thing, but I guess that they think otherwise.
But if I had it my way, an INDEPENDENT would be placed as president, because I do not thing that either Democrats or Republicans keep their promises and they are way too infatuated with winning the presidential election and less on the issues that the country is currently facing.
@ LearnDNA- The main thing that I don't like about Democrats is that some, just as you have in certain questions, still say bad things about America and go around bashing Americans and the USA when the president that you wanted is currently in office, lol... and how some of you can call Republicans "un-American" for speaking bad about the president, then yet it isn't "un-American" to go around talking bad about your country and it's people? That makes no sense to me, to be honest...
Yeah, since Ron Paul so far isn't even close to overtaking Newt ( who I would NOT want to be president) Obama is most likely my choice, but I think he needs to take certain issues a tad bit more seriously. But to call him a radical and an absolute failure is a bit far-fetched and I do not agree with it.
@ LearnDNA- I don't see how calling all Americans fat and stupid is trying to better your country.... That is just being an @sshole. And as I said, if Obama is doing such a great job, why do you have things to complain about? Obviously he isn't doing the best he can be, which is something Democrats need to admit to... And I never said that I expect Obama to fix the whole economy in one term of presidency, either.
I think for the killing of Osama Bin Laden, Obama deserves 30% of the credit and the troops deserve 70%
