And you should be ashamed too.

After 8 years of George W Bush, the most perfect opportunity that could have ever presented itself actually did present itself through a preponderance of ways, and somehow....some way....Barack Obama managed to screw it up.

What a wasted opportunity for the First Black President. I feel sorry for African Americans, because we all know they hung their collective hats on his election. And what did they get for it??

A pandering, listless, petulant, buffoon who has led from the back of the pack his entire Presidency.

How unfortunate we are. Barack Obama was poised to be one of the great President's of our nation, and instead he will undoubtedly go down in history as one of the worst.

What a crying shame.

It really depends on who writes the history books. Right now the education system is 80% Democrat. If it stays that way, he will probably go down in history as a hero. Progressives have a demonstrated willingness to revise history with their politics.

Objective historians will no doubt judge him a failure but objective historians may be few and far between.

I agree. As a historian, I have to say there is no other president in our history that even comes close to the appalling incompetence and disrespect this man has brought to the prestegious office of president of the United States.

You have no idea what objective historians will say because your own analysis of his presidency is not objective.

Good grief. A person doesn't have to be an "objective historian" to see the truth. Most people with a brain who are halfway intelligent can see that what the OP said rings true.

Just keep telling yourself whatever it is you wish. But the truth always wins, and it's not on your side.

Good luck with that.

In case you haven't noticed, Barack Obama is not perceived well by the public, his economic policies are in shambles, the world is on fire in a number of ways requiring US leadership, the government is Lying about spying on its own citizens, and the best he can do is point fingers at the other side in a perpetual fit of blame???

If your opinion is representative of the black population, then no wonder black people still support him as if he's Jesus. If what you see in front of your face is none of the things I mentioned above, then why should we seriously consider the relevancy of black opinion in the first place?

Open your eyes! Barack Obama is NOT a good leader! Barack Obama is not a good President!

Meh, just another politician serving his corporate masters in the oligarchy.

I'm kind of surprised it has been this bad. I think he is better suited for academics. He should be the dean of small liberal arts college in New England.
