Do you consider Barack Obama a Super Hero?
He was always Presidential and professional. He was always polite and respectful to everyone. Sadly, I think he had the most death threats of any president, but he never mentioned it.
Don't forget this.
Near the end of Bush's 2nd term the stock market was spiraling toward a total economic crash that would have spread worldwide. Barack led the economic rescue of America. The stock market at least double during his tenure.
Obama...a super hero???? Maybe if u are part of the 1% or a die hard republican. Expanded wars, right wing health plan, corporate bailout....etc. he may have been charming and speak eloquently but his actual actions make him a POS imo. I fell for his lies in 08 but like Bush said...."fool me once, shame on...shame on u, fool me....u can't get fooled again."
Obama did the hard work and was kicked to the curb! He was a true man of honor in my book, but I don’t do hero worship. He did an outstanding job, against what appeared to me to be, great odds! He is unlike so many other big name politicians, who should walk the ‘hall of shame!’ And, there have been so many of them in the last 40 short years! I can’t understand how the people keep voting these same ‘get nothing done,’ politicians back into office...to represent them?
A decent man, but in the end a Chicago democrat who gave great speeches but couldn't follow up. As the late Gore Vidal said in 2007 about Obama, yes 2007, Chicago democrats always give great speeches but never stand for anything. He forsaw what we couldn't see then. Nothing will remain of his presidency ultimately other than the memory of lost opportunity to attempt real change, a failure that lead to Trump. Sorry to say.
He was not perfect. He murdered at least two American citizens with drone strikes who had not been convicted of anything, depriving them of their Constitutional right of due process of law. He also acknowledged that he did not have the constitutional authority to use presidential decrees in certain instances of immigration issues but then used them anyway, setting a precedent for the duffus who is now president to follow suit. He was seemingly brash in some of his decisions. He was no super hero...he weakened the Constitution.
Can you just imagine what this country could have been like if Obama didn't have 8 years of obstruction to battle instead of spending that time improving on the lives of everyday Americans? What a missed opportunity and fuck those repulsican pigs for creating those obstructions......not that I'm bitter or anything! Fucking fuckwits
Obama was no superhero. He made his own mistakes and missteps.
However, given the disaster he inherited from Dubya, I'd say he did a
damned good job getting this country moving forward again.
Something 45 is trying to take credit for now.
He tried to get us out of wars we never had to (or should have) become involved in.
He has more class than 45 could ever try to buy (you know, because no one can
"buy" class, but there are an awful lot of rich people who try to). He hasn't had multiple children with multiple women. No women have come forward to accuse him of any kind of misconduct. There have never been allegations that he ever
cheated on his wife with anyone.
He's never filed bankruptcy. He's never been accused of running a fraudulent
university or foundation.
He didn't keep fact-checkers employed and busy, 24/7/365.
He's never screwed contracted workers out of their promised compensation.
He's never been sued for failure to carry out legal contracts.
It's also likely that he's never had anyone sign an NDA to protect his public image.
He was actually intelligent, well educated, well read, and well spoken.
He was thoughtful and clearly showed he cared about ALL the American people.
I respect Obama more than I've respected ANY of the men occupying that job
in my lifetime.
He is no superhero, he's no saint, he's damned sure not perfect, he's a human being.
However, he is a damn sight better than the current piece of shit occupying the job. By a country mile.
I love and miss President and Michelle Obama.
President Obama is highly intelligent, well read, calm, ethical, measured, thoughtful, loving and funny with great people skills. He is kind, polite and respectful to everyone.
President Obama is deeply missed.
No, I don't. He's just a man who's better than most. They say that Rome wasn't built in a day. But it can fall in a day. You can kind of apply that to the influence that presidents actually have on the economy. So I wouldn't credit Obama so much with the economic turnaround after the recession, despite him being at the helm. But you can see right now how quickly a president can fuck things up with a stroke of the pen.
There's VERY few politicians who I could say this about, but Obama has my utmost respect. He did a difficult job, and undoubtedly made mistakes, but less than most and he never let go if his core values and beliefs. I'll never forget his frustration over theoretically being the most powerful person in the world but being rendered powerless to do anything about access to guns. His heart was in the right place.
I'm not for policies and agendas, but one thing I really like that obama did try to push forward the learning of critical think ing, and the use of learning the Scientific method to Question everything. Learn what you can but do the research yourself to learn about how to learn to think rather that being tolled what to think,
One great example was Obamma got to bring the Mythbusters on for a show about What is the data saying is believed, rather than asumming what we think.
