Obama won the U.S election, what happens now

Things will get better

Side Score: 46
VS.

Things will be worse

Side Score: 46

Things will improve. Obama has made countless improvements over the past four years. Take a look at this graph about job creation shown below.

It's true that Obama did not live up to every single one of his promises four years ago, but please remember that the market crashed. He had a gargantuan crisis to work with, and he handled it marvelously.

In the next four years, if Obama is reelected, things will continue to get better.

Your right it hasn't been four years of Obama improving things, it was the first 2 years and the second 2 having the Republican party saying no.

No to fixing the economy.

No to a working budget.

No to health care.

I have yet to see Congress giving up their health care. If the Republicans want to rid of something; I suggest they start with their benefits, not every one else's.

I will, thank you very much. Would you like to supply any evidence, or would you like to just contradict me pointlessly?

Oh my gosh!!! I've seen that graph and it is completely misleading. 1) The graph may have been supplied by the BLS but they didn't label it as job creation and that's the deception here. That is totally fabricated by the Obama administration and his campaign strategists! 2) when looking at the decrease go from negative to less negative... That's not because of job creation, that just represents a slow down of job loss... Completely different my friend! For example from March 2009 to February 2009, the change from -800k to approximately -300K jobs doesn't mean President Obama created 500k jobs in that month it means there was a total loss of 300K additional jobs. The only time this graph shows a start of increase in job creation is in February 2010, ONE YEAR AND TWO MONTHS AFTER HE TOOK OFFICE!!!! From that point forward count how many jobs we're created and exclude the jobs for the months OCT-DEC of each year because those jobs are seasonal primarily for Christmas and those employees get laid-off after the holiday and you will see the number doesn't remotely come close to making up the jobs lost through Jan. 2009 to Jan. 2010. Boom!! Can you feel that coming? huh? huh? huh? I have excercized the demons! This house is clear. LOSERS? losers! losers! lahoozaherrrr!

If things continue getting better it will be in despite of his policies and not because of them, what with so many businesses declaring they they'll either cut the amount of workers hired or reduce their hours below the amount required to require healthcare coverage as just one example. Further, handled it marvelously? I presume you meant that besides a VERY few amount of policies (removal of DADT which I applaud him for) he's acted like Dubya Jr. For instance, renewal and expansion of the PATRIOT act, signed assassinations of United States citizens with no due process, more drone strikes in four years than G. W. Bush had in all eight of his presidency, and continued support of the bailouts.

I cannot say that things will necessarily get better. Though, I argue on this side, because things, at the very least, will not get drastically worse then if Romney were elected, I believe.

Honestly i don't think much would really change. Depending in who hold the house vote if its all republican then we can expect nothing to change. However if there's a democratic house and president then we can expect major changes.

1 year ago | Side: Things will get better

I agree, although the president can still make some changes, regardless of the house. Some of it may be shut down, but some progress can still be made.

You make a great point though.

Obama is a good President. He has capacity how to handle the nation. So, he can give a better administration.

I think there is a big opportunity here.

- Politics, If both sides work together we can do something about the budget, Republicans are quietly saying they're open to "increase revenue", Dems have already agreed to tax spending cuts

- The US Economy, Trillions of dollars have been sitting on the sidelines due to uncertainty, as the future becomes clearer that money will begin to flow

- Energy, shale oil is changing EVERYTHING. The natural gas boom is going to make an incredible difference

- Foreign Affairs, Pretty scary

If Obama wins the presidency, then this country is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.

Old Testament, real wrath of God type stuff.

Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling!

Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes...

The dead rising from the grave!

Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!

And this is shown by what evidence?

(Also, he won. Only darkness I'm seeing is at nighttime, no fire and brimstone, just a few more jobs happening, people dying and coming back as normal, that is to say, not at all.)

Wait until the end of the Mayan calendar ;)

Chances are if we vote the same dude back in were going to get more of the same. So I guess it's up to you as the reader of this fine post to determine if you think the last four years have been good or bad, relatively speaking.

I did some research, and it's true. The illuminati chooses the president, the illuminati is in control of the president.
