So, be it for good or ill in your eyes, 50 years down the road he will be remembered not only as the first African American President, but also the President who ended two wars, turned around a tanked economy, reformed healthcare, took down Bin Laden, removed DADT and presided over the nation during the extension of full civil rights to gays.
And all of it small peas compared to the historical aspects of the Washington/Lincoln/FDR presidencies. But since you mentioned the debt, he'll also be remembered as the President who presided over $26 Trillion in national debt. I don't know anyone who gives a **** about gay rights when in fact the country is insolvent. But leave it to liberals to not give a damn about anything that really matters.

Btw, Obama could fart and it would give a liberal goosebumps.
That's for blacks to determine...and last I checked, you ain't black. When the hell did you start caring about disservice to blacks? This morning?

Simply put, Barack Obama is not the pivotal figure that his supporters hoped he would be. He'll merely fade into time and be one of the 44 Presidents, nowhere near as notable as Lincoln or Washington or Jefferson or FDR or Reagan. It's just not in the cards for him. He's not a natural born leader.
Yea, well the referendum on his leadership was held, and he won. Your guy couldn't lead worth a damn either, but you would've taken the victory so stop crying.

These threads are like a Walmart of sore loserdom.
