    President Obama: Yay or Nay?

    Hey Hey!

    So I did one of these for President Trump and I was interested in the feedback I got. So in the interest of probing a little further here is the same idea for the 44th President of the United States Barack Obama. Because Obama is no longer in office just say "yay" if you think he did well, and "nay" if you do not think he did well. Again, this is not a debate. But, if you would like to provide your reasons for your vote please feel free in either case. The metric of how ou judge this is entirely up to you.

    As before, I will start. I vote Yay.

    Re: President Obama: Yay or Nay?

    Hey slynch8686!

    I will give a Nay. Obama was smooth, polished, and scandal-free. The majority of the reporters out there couldn't fall over themselves enough to sing his praises. Without a long explanation, here are some reasons why I say Nay.

    1) Obamacare.

    2) I did not like his submissive and yielding tone towards the world. I would like a strong President, not one who is trying to be very nice to everyone and give them what they want. We need someone who will deal with stuff, and be tough, if that makes sense. One who has our interests in mind before other countries.

    3) His hypocrisy and spying. 'Nuff said.

    Anyway, I'm happy to provide a different opinion, love the diversity on this site, and value the input of others who think differently than me.

    Thanks for the forum!

    Hello slynch8686!

    I would say Yay for President Obama! I like how he ran his presidency he was very classy! I think what I loved the most is that I was able to see someone with the same color as me in the White house!

    Thanks for the forum,


    Re: President Obama: Yay or Nay?

    Hey back at ya,

    Like last time, I can't give a quick "yay/nay"! And, I feel that way about every President. I need a checklist so I could rank President Obama by the following characteristics: a human being, leader, policy maker, etc. For me, it isn't a straight party association "vote"!

    Here are a few of my thoughts and how I was personally impacted by his tenure:

    -I appreciated his role in a seemingly strong family. I like how he appeared to value his wife and treated her respectfully. He obviously adored his children.
    -He was proud of his heritage and cultural traditions.
    -I was displeased with the way insurance went during his tenure. My insurance rates increased 60% during his time in office.
    -My salary was frozen for three years. During that time, my insurance rose at an alarming rate. There were some tough financial times for me. Personally, I was not better off.
    -I appreciated his role in issues of equality.
    -Stem cell research was expanded during his tenure.
    -I valued his work in school nutrition,,,Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act.
    -The school at which I work suffered financially. There was no money for supplies and no new text books were purchased.

    So again, there are so many layers and there isn't a quick and easy answer for me!

    Thanks for taking the time to read my reply,
