I wanted to believe he would be a good president, but he is likely the worst! He has not had a budget in 3.5 years, passes illegal legislation, and has a poor policy on terror.

Damn, I wish I could get paid like he does to suck so badly!

SO, abandoning war efforts before the country is ready to take over and instead letting the terrorists take over and prevail is being more effective on terror? Not a chance!

He's not the worst president in US history. Jimmy Carter probably takes the wrap on that one.

Obama and Bush have expanded the powers of Federal government the most since FDR. The national debt has increased more under Obama than any other president, and if the Supreme Court doesn't rule Obamacare unconstitutional, the national debt will exceed anything anyone could have dreamed of in the 90s.

So I'm very much against the Obama administration, but I wouldn't consider him technically the WORST.

I don't deny that Obama isn't amazing (I only support him now as the best of a bad lot), but with the debt, that's hardly the most accurate way of looking at it.

While it is true that the debt has increased under Obama more than anyone else, trillions of that comes from Bush's spending in Iraq/Afghanistan, the payments were delayed so it wouldn't be Bush's problem. Link

If you look at what the two actually spent, you'll notice a massive difference, and yet people still give Obama responsibility for things that he had no control over. I do not see this as fair in any way.

I should have been more specific.

The point is that under 3 years he has created new spending, and he will continue to increase the debt with little mind to how this is a problem

The first article is not false (even though your link claims it is) and the second article explains why.

If you're looking for someone who will actually cut spending and the debt, look to Gary Johnson, the Libertarian candidate.

Otherwise, Romney is a slightly less big government hungry version of Obama.

Are you kidding? Jimmy Carter was a muffin compared to this guys idiocy. Jimmy Carter actually wanted the Country to do well and Succeed. This waste of human flesh is happy to destroy the Capitalist system (Using Pivard and Cloens method) He still refuses to (Spends four million to keep closed) disclose his academic record (Probably because he, like most liberals lied to use the system to get ahead(Used the foreign student criteria to get into either school he "Supposedly" attended although NOONE at either school remembers him)) Has a meeting with his cabinet ONCE in seven months(Yeah that makes twice a year if he works it right, although he is too stupid to think anyone notices how dumb as fuck he is) then tells us to inflate our tires? What a fucking moron, and anyone that supports him is as dumb as a stump to even think he is anything but a waste of human flesh.

obama is one of the greatest leaders of all time.

the US economy is growing faster than all of europe. despite the fact bush dragged america into 2 unwinnable wars. obama has in effect ended both. he also was way more successful in talking out ghadaffi, bin laden and 100s of terrorist leaders

he is right on israel palestine too where he tries to stay somewhat neutral

at home hes given health care for 50 ,million poorest.

hes invested 800 billion in infrastructuce, industry and roads.

the US car manufacturers are now worlds number 1

hes invested trillions in education, science , technology and stem cell research too

most sectors are growing, hes also been way tougher on the chinses imports with higher tariffs

the stock market has almost doubled in value under obama from 7250 to 13700 yet this is ignored? why?

hes closed 60% of guantanamo bay, hes rewarding companies that keep american jobs in america

hes gone after corporate corruption and fined goldman sachs, british petroleum etc in total hundreds of billions

hes tightened regulations on corporate giants and reduced them on smaller businesses....hes created over 5 million private jobs and cut almost 500,000 state jobs, so hes not a socialist at all. but most new jobs are now in small businesses so hes rebalanced the economy and spread the wealth by increasing taxes on millionaires by 5% thats only fair and proper.

hes now trying to ban automatic weapons tighten gun controls and reduce the number of guns that have the potential to fall into the hands of maniacs. hes also invested more money into treatment of mental health issues.

hes a fantastic president

he has reduced military spending by 2 trillion compared to his opponents and still the US has an army bigger than the rest of the world combined.

hes reduced nuclear weapons in russia by 40% and america by 30% when the disarmament takes places. hes talked down the need for perpetual war and is at heart a peacemaker. hes achieved infinitely more than bush. hes given america its respect back, its balance and its intelligence and heart.

he isnt a socialist or a right winger, hes a balanced decent man who took over this great nation in the worst recession for 80 years and 2 unwinnable wars.....

hes clearly explained how he has built growth and jobs and infrastructure and reduced military spending and how this will in time redu ce the 16 trillion debt. the debt was 11 trillion when he started but 2 trillion was already passed in bills to bail banks, property market, plus the automotor industry which worked and save nearly a million jobs....every bank has had to pay back every cent on time or face fine after fine....obamas rules on the bankers was infinitely tighter than in europe. obama went through it with a scalpel just as he said he would

unemployment is steadily down every month for the past 20...now its 7.7% but the underlying truth is hes rebalanced the economy and there are 100s of thousands of new vibrant small businesses with millions of new jobs and new employees.

hes taken long term decisions too to help amefricans get health treatment....americans are 49th in the list of nations for mortality....the average american dies over 10 years younger than nations at the top of this list.

the last government was so far right wing it ended up on the left, where the richest were bailed out by tax payers, where 90% of the country was owned by the 1%...thats the same result as old russia...thats not free market,,thats a cartel a monopoly of fixed prices and fixed wages and corrupt rules...war mongerers were making billions by promoting war on war channels

with the healthcare bill and the tighter gun laws and bans on automatics, also with fairer taaxes and rewards for small to medium businesses, america can become again the nation of our dreams, the land of opportunity!

Wilson was pretty bad, and so was Buchanan. Carter gives Obama a good run for his money (or should I say other people's money) but I have to say Obama is without a doubt the worst, most spendthrift, most disengaged, incompetent and inept President I've ever seen. An outstanding stump politician, but completely devoid of leadership skills.

Side: Against obama

I think the sides in this debate are a bit skewed from the question itself.

I would prefer not to vote on either side of this due to that, but of the two choices this is more accurate; I am personally against Obama, after all.

That said, I think it's a bit of a stretch to say he's the worst president the USA ever had. He's certainly not one of the best, but I doubt he's a candidate for the worst.

Side: Against obama

The first thing someone will say is "Yeah, but Bush......" I don't care who the president is, if he does wrong it is wrong. I am not Republican or Democrat. I am just plain conservative Christian. You might could sa a "Christocrat".

First let me say that I am slowly getting the impression that this is a site for kids and young adults. Some of the answers, and definitely a lot of the spelling and grammar indicate as much. So I realize now that I must take some of these debates with a grain of salt.

Having said that, this is what I say to people when they say that a particular President was the worst. In your adult life assess your economic standing under every President. Figure out which negative economic phases are attributed to yourself and which ones were caused by government forces. Of the ones caused by government forces, separate those caused by your state, and the federal government. Of the one(s) caused by the federal government, how many were caused by direct government legislation (do your thorough research)?

I can continue on, because of a two house congress, and stubborn party affiliations, but I am guessing, that most of the bad stuff in your life is YOUR own fault, not the fault of federal laws. Human beings, especially in America, love to point fingers and blame every one else for our screw ups. Your life is screwed up and the President (whose only been in office for 3 years) is the cause?

Reassess when your life began to plummet, I think you will find that it goes back farther than 3 years.

This site is more user based than other debate sites. Much less regulation.

It can be bad since, yeah, we have little kids with shitty arguments and debates who come on this site a lot, but they're usually ignored by the more serious debaters. Basically, a debate will get much action if it's a decent one.

What's good is that we don't have to worry about any kind of censorship or abuse of power. You're not going to get banned for saying something edgy (or even REALLY edgy). You won't get banned if you didn't match a criteria. Instead, a creator of a specific debate can restrict your participation from within that specific debate if they feel that you are being improper in the format.

Once again, user based. More freedom, but with more liberty comes less security (in this case, annoying users).

President Obama is most definitely not the worst. My vote, at least for modern Presidents, is definitely for Bush Jr. He is responsible for setting the U.S. back further than anyone else. Obama inherited many of the deficiencies leftover from the Bush/Cheney debacle. While I wish he would have accomplished more, and not strayed as far from many of his campaign promises, Obama has done a decent job of trying to overcome the adversity of a republican controlled house/senate. If the evangelical right would learn to play nice there would be many more advances made in the effort to have the U.S. progress vs. reverse its global course.

Mostly, what I hear is that he's Muslim, Kenyan, or Black. Frankly, if he had blond hair and blue eyes, the outcome would look a lot different. When I'm surrounded by just white people and they feel a little more relaxed to use the N-word, that's mostly what I hear.

President Obama is a remarkable President, and with unemployment trending downward he's going to be considered a historic President!

President Obama's policies have helped to expand the American economy and reduce unemployment. The country is far better off than where it was five years ago--even while many of our allies abroad continue to suffer pronounced unemployment! 7.6% unemployment nationally is far better than the whopping 10% high in October of 2009; and far better than the 12% unemployment rate currently effecting the eurozone.

The Wars in Afghanistan and in Iraq have finally concluded, and President Obama gave the order that took Osama Bin Laden out of this world. The President has also played a hand in defeating the despotic regime of Moamar Gadhafi.

Despite all the negative prognostications over the last five years, America's place in the world is looking far better with the passage of time, even while a Republican-led House refuses to dance with the President and work with him on such issues as sequestration, expanded background checks on gun purchases, and increasing tax revenue. Hopefully this attitude changes on immigration reform.

Considering his obstacles, President Obama has done an outstanding job!

These polls were all released on Thursday. Colorado is shaded red because every other poll in the state this year has had Obama in the lead. The Romney surge continues.

Both of the two positive states — Virginia and Wisconsin — saw dips for Obama from previous polling. In a March Quinnipiac survey of Virginia, Obama held an 8-point lead. The Wisconsin results, on the other hand, reaffirm that it's going to be a close race there.

The Obama campaign doesn't have Michigan on its official list of swing states. But if Romney flipped Michigan, Colorado, Ohio and Florida this election, that would give him the razor-thin 278 to 260 electoral victory.

I must comment on the absolute eloquence of George Sexton's April 13 letter to the editor and quotations relative to the treasonous activities of our esteemed president. I couldn't agree more with Sexton. This president is assuredly the worst president in the 236 years of our existence, a term predicated not only on treasonous action, but impeachable activity as well.

He has made a mockery of our Americanism by his association with known derelicts, the breaching and ignoring of our Constitution, and belittling whomever differs with his impeachable political ideals.

Obama is a bad president, but he is not the worst. Sure, he has started an illegal drone war in the Middle East, signed the PATRIOT ACT, and was prepared to pass censorship bills (SOPA/PIPA), but there have been worse presidents. Bush started two illegal wars that put our troops in danger, passed the PATRIOT ACT through Congress, and his presidency was disturbingly similar to Hitler's before Hitler became the Führer of Germany.

I prefer Obama over Romney, but only because Romney is utterly corrupt and insane.

Obama has not done that much harm. Obamacare hasn't been tested yet, but if it works well to save people money, then I'll be happy.

If it's a massive, useless drain, then ehh. USA was going down the shitter anyways.

I wish he'd fund science a bit more though. Not just NASA, but make a lot more grants for research.

Obama is a great president and he gave you Obamacare and he said SORRY when it didn't work to me that showed that he was trying! Bush never said sorry for anything! Wait nope I can't hear him! I'm saying bush was way worse! Obama is trying to do good things for the country but he's challenged by the worst Congress in existence aka the gop who blames him for everything that goes wrong and doesn't give him credit for the good things he did!

Remember bush! Obama captured Osama bin laden a thing that bush didn't even ATTEMPT TO DO because he wanted oil and needed a good scapegoat for 9/11 also Obama never exploited the oil spill! Guess what Bush exploited 9/11 a distaster that MIGHT of been averted if bush stopped reading My Pet Goat and hurried to save those 3,000 Americans! Stiill 9/11 was osama's fault not bush and those 3,000 Americans might of died anyway even if bush been responsible and stopped reading my pet goat and tried to help! Plus bush wasn't even ELECTED! Obama was elected besides he apolized when healthcare went wrong! And Obama was trying to help the poor and doesn't take nearly as much vacations as bush at least I believe! I also believe that Obama did tax cuts for the 95% ie the poor and even us in the 4% ie the middle class!

Bush also lied to us and killed a lot of ours soldiers and injured more all for the sake of OIL COMPANIES! Cheney was the one puppettering bush I know but bush lied and he never visited a military funeral! Obama lied too but I don't think he meant to lie! Obama was most likely thinking that the things he said were going to happen but it didn't happen that way oh and Obama APOLIZED and that means a lot to me! Bush lied ON PURPOSE and never said sorry for anything! Obama is having a hard time now and has a congress that blames him for the bad and never gives him credit for the good! He caught Osama as well and he wants to help the poor! And tax the rich but congress won't let him! Mitt Romney said that the poor are lazy moochers aka the 47% or should we say the 95% and Obama's done and is trying to do great things! He may not be the best president! Clition gave us a surplus and Lincoln freed the slaves but he-Obama is FAR from being the worst! Last place belongs to Mr. Former president and liar and idiotic and lazy George W. Bush!

Obama will be at least number 15. Someone called George Bush Jr and Bill Clinton. Ever heard of them.

Barack Obama is a good President. Millions of Americans who couldn't afford health insurance before can now purchase it due to ObamaCare.

Obama i would say ties in for a good second place but bush was defiantly the worst, killing 3,000 people just so he could start homeland security and take away our rights huh small price to pay for more power i guess.
