Poll: Do you think Barack Obama is doing a Good Job as President?

Updated on January 23, 2014

Do you think Barack Obama is doing a good job as President?

See results

Barack Obama has had to go through a lot in his time as President. I am sure he has had to deal with many Republican issues and I am glad he is still president. It shows that our country has gone far since we now have a half black President.

Well, Obama is certainly a nice guy and a family man. He listens to his wife and takes care of his children. Is he the best President? Probably not. Is he the worst? Certainly not as bad as George W. Bush.

I think we ought to be thankful to have a Democrat for President. Obama cares about the common folks and does what he can not to let us down. He is not so big about making appearances any longer. However, I am sure he is still working hard behind the scenes.

So what if he is not working so hard? Who cares? My life is still the same as it always has been. I am still poor and the Republicans are still rich. However, I would vote Democrat any day no matter how bad things will get.

You know in the upcoming election you could be faced with a choice between the Republican presidential candidate Chris Kristie and Hilary Clinton. Please vote for Hilary and make her the first female president so all women know they can do it too! Other Democrats will help her even if she is not fit for the job. Vote for the principle at stake here!

      Once again, facts fail you. Dems had that majority for all of 13 weeks. The ACA (the conservative approach to universal coverage, which conservatives abandoned en masse because president blacky adopted their ideas, btw) was passed by a partisan vote (despite all of the horse trading to get conservatives on board), and y'all use that fact as a cudgel. What, are you saying that dems should have enacted every liberal idea in the world with strictly partisan votes in those 13 weeks? Would that have satisfied you? Did you have a point?

      '' Pay go is just dumb. It's as though these people do not understand how gov't and economics work.'' Did you know that pay go law was created and passed by the 2010 Democrat super majority Congress and signed into law by President Obama. 2009 2010 the Democrats had 100% super majority control of government, Republicans were shut out of ALL legislation.SURPRISE

      There are other parts of your post that can be debateable regarding Senator's remarks and the need for government spending in the past 5 years.

      Coburn? Coburn is generally wrong on policy, but he is a respectable conservative with integrity. And he's retiring from office. I agree that there is an ish load of waste - much of which is attributed to the military (and surveillance-) industrial complexes.

      Pay go is just dumb. It's as though these people do not understand how gov't and economics work. States have balanced budget laws because they can (sometimes) afford to. The federal gov't is a different case altogether - they control monetary policy and money printing. In lean times, the federal gov't must run a deficit to counteract declining consumer spending.

      Otherwise a death spiral of financial futility takes effect and we become any regular pseudo-euro country with high poverty and an increasingly wealthy upper class.

      Can you grasp this basic fact? That when consumer spending drops, the federal gov't has a responsibility to maintain spending levels?

      If not, jobs simply disappear because consumer spending drops. Companies cannot sell to folks who have no money. Rich folk put their money into savings. Poor folks have no choice but to recycle their incomes right back into the local economy.

      It's really not that complicated...

      And yet, health care spending (since 2009) has grown at the slowest rate since the 1950s. And the latest gallup pool shows that 2.5% more Americans are insured.

      Also, look closer, Americans love every aspect of Obamacare. They love Obamacare as a whole - so long as they are asked about the Affordable Care Act, which is very popular (and the same exact thing, but half the country has been told for 4 years that Obamcare was the end of freedom, so they don't lie the name).

      Look at that idiot Gohmert, he is choosing not to take the tax subsidy so he can claim that his premium is higher, and he is paying the penalty instead of buying insurance on the private market. And he has access to free emergency care as a congressman, btw.

      Gohmert is representative.
