Thanks! I corrected it.

What "difference" would that be?

What dramatic turnaround has our nation made? Specifically, of course, one that has had Obama leading it, and provide examples of how he's been leading it.

No, there's no thought in your post.

It's just blind, fanciful dreaming.

Not a chance in 40 million hells will Barack Obama end up on a piece of currency.

Not an iota of a chance. I'm confident of that.

Maybe after Obama slithers back to Chicago, the rest of the country will cut Cleveland some slack and start referring to Obama as "The Mistake By The Lake".

LOL at all the stupid people getting bent out of shape about this troll post.

Honestly Obama is a morally better person than any of the presidents on our money besides maybe Lincoln, and who knows what kid of rotten things he may have done that wouldn't go under the radar now days.

He plods and blunders, yet in the end succeeds where others before him have failed. Love him or hate him, he has made a difference in the country. When he is gone from office, he deserves a place on US currency. Since Jackson was only put there to mock him and Jackson is responsible for the deaths of thousands of Native Americans, it is time to replace him anyway and Obama may be just the man of the moment. What do you think? Obama on the 20? Move Roosevelt to the 20 and put Obama on the dime?
Actually, Andrew Jackson is the perfect comparison. Jackson was a wildly popular president, yet everything significant he did is an embarrassment to American history. He quite hastily shut down the Bank of the US, thereby collapsing our economy. He also drove them pesky Cherokee Indians off their land -- killing many of them in the subsequent forced march -- so that the white folks in Georgia, Alabama, and Tennessee could take it for their own. Very popular at the time mind you, but one of biggest embarrassments in our history. The Supreme Court even tried to stop him. He just ignored them of course.

Andrew Jackson will forever be immortalized as the hero of the Battle of New Orleans ... but he was an absolutely terrible US president ... just like Barack Obama. And just like Jackson, Obama is loved and adored, but I can't comprehend why.
