Why do you have problems with Pres. Obama? Consider he's been elected twice. The first president to do this since Clinton and won convincingly twice. Please list specific and clear reasons you have issues with our president? Please don't make general or racial statements.

Too many to go into, so will just give this, specific example.

How many times have you heard him refer to Clinton's policies, look how good the Clinton yrs were and that just shows that the Democrats ideas are better?

If they were that good, why doesnt he do the same thing now?

First lets look at the economy, it was great during the Clinton years, why? The tech boom of the 90's was a once in a life time occurence and it had nothing to do with Clinton. If you don't buy that, tell me what policy or policies Clinton enacted that without, the tech boom would not have occurred.

Would love to hear your answer to that, I worked for a major tech company during the 90's and I can assure you that no one ever jumped and down and said "Thank God for this specific Clinton policy, now we are going to grow like no tomorrow".

Clinton said his adminstration was the end of big government and significantly reduced entitlements.
What is Obama doing or done that even remotely resembles this>

Obama says it was Bush's policies that led to the financial crisis. Which ones, name me one. Well there was the repeal of the Glass Steegal act(do a google). The repeal did allow banks to start trading stocks and derivatives again which did play a role in the finacial crisis, one problem though, it was Clinton that passed the repeal

So there you have it, those are just a few.

Bush was elected twice.... That was after Clinton.

And I like Obama, but his policies are what I dont like.

Healthcare reform with hidden tax increases on taxpayers and small businesses to pay for it.

Billions of dollars wasted on "Stimulus" packages for shovel ready jobs. Yet there were over $300 billion dollars of pork in the stimulus.

Inciting racial warfare. Instead of everyone being the same, he always needs to stand up and comment when an african-american is involved in something. (Trayvon Marting, The black professor at the college IE: Beer Summit)

Saying no lobbyists in his administration, yet has the most of any president

Vacations and multi-million dollar taxpayer spending sprees, lavish white house dinners with celebrities... all while saying "I am just like every normal American, and I am suffering too"

I can go on and on....

Mike writes: " ALL of this he INHERITED from George W. Ambush, obviously your HERO."

George W isn't my hero, but what obama inherited from bush was an annual average unemployment rate of 4.5%. Not 8 percent. He inherited a debt of 10.7 trillion. Not a 15 trillion debt. He also inherited a lower number of poor people, people on food stamps, etc.

Now, he is not the first to have inherited something bad from his predecessors. Reagan inherited the cold war and the economic disaster of the carter years. Lincoln inherited the slave trade. Nixon inherited Vietnam. FDR inherited the great depression. Now, only FDR and obama inherited something bad only to make things worse. The other presidents knew how to end the bad things they inherited. Is it bushs fault for what obama inherited? Yes. But its obamas fault for making it worse.

I love Pres. Obama because he saved us from the TOTAL COLLAPSE that 'W' had attempted to pull off. 'W' is the biggest BANK ROBBER IN HISTORY.

He should be in jail. BUT, when you're a Republican President, you're exempted from any real justice.

Sad, but true. At least we got rid of NIXON before he could pull off what 'W' eventually did achieve.
