    Does Obama deserve another four years to put America back on track?

    Considering what he was dealt on his arrival in the White House, and what he has achieved so far, does he deserve more time?

    Being an outsider, I think it doesn't matter if he is given 1 term or 2 terms, he could have achieved what he promised if he was a strong president. I think the whole election system of US should be reviewed to make US a lesser pseudo-democratic country.

    Overall, I would say no, considering that for the first two years he had a large majority in the House and a veto-proof majority in the Senate.  Guantanamo Bay should be closed by now, we should have at least a public option, the stimulus could've been a lot better and Iraq could've ended sooner.  Personally, I am done voting for the lesser of two evils and will vote for Jill Stein of the Green Party in November.

    In my opinion, America is not off track. Obama is the one who is off track.

    Thus, he certainly does NOT deserve to be president for four more years.

    No Obama and the National Security State has done enough damage.  They gave him several awards not just the Nobel one, of which he recieved recognition for improving transparancy in governance when the opposite is true.  More documents have been pulled, FOIA process has been further blockaded (ask expert Larry Bryant), more work arounds to Constitutional governance have been put in place (see NDAA & the Food Bill), and now there are roving military practices for martial law against the population and that doesn't even touch what the TSA has been doing!  I'm voting Ron Paul to restore the balance of power via the States.  There's one huge mess here that needs housecleaning.  Oh and one more item, he promised to bring home our guys from Iraq?  Not really see this: … nd-masirah  He didn't close any of the war profiteering down he's just in the process of transfering it.

    Nope. Before he was in the White House, he said Bush was "unpatriotic" for adding $4 trillion to our debt. So far since Obama has been in the White House, he has added $5 trillion to our debt. When an area of our country needed him, he was out on the golf course. Obama also dislikes homeschooling, which I am very fond of. He has stated that he wants children in public school, no at home education even though the children are more educated from home. It took him forever to get the troops back from Iraq, a year after he originally said. He spend a million or two in an attempt to give people good jobs, that lasted for six months and cost more than it helped. He allowed abortions even though the child can, after a certain age, feel everything that is happening to them.
    Obama also added that any woman who becomes pregnant MUST be written up and her information is given to the government. Once the government has that information, a social worker reports to the woman's home address and inspect the home. The woman will lose her child if the home does not fit qualifications, she is not taking care of herself while pregnant, or if the social worker does not think her ready for a child. After the birth if the woman is allowed to keep the baby, social workers will drop by over the years to insure that the child will live in a safe environment and good home with a decent mother. If the social worker is not welcomed inside the home at any time, the mother will be written up and have more frequent visits. Her child will be watched closer and more closely observed. If ANY chance to take away the child is possible, it will be done.
    I will admit he has done a few good things. Such as putting federal support and money behind stem-cell research and lifted all bans on the process. New funds for school's internet access and remodeling. Guantanamo Bay is being phased out. Our troops are getting rid of equipment they weren't using and are getting better body armor. The missile defense system has been cut over $1 billion. Offshore tax havens are now closed off. Increasing student loans.

    Obama is a failed president. He has done more to devalue America than any president in previous history. His idea of fixing things is to overspend in the hopes that the money that is dumped in the economy will somehow make the playing field level. In addition, Obama is a president of convenience resulting from an overly politically correct country. Many of the people who voted for him did so just because he is black. America can't afford another second with this far left liberal puppet in the White House. He has made everything paramountly worse. He inherited a problem largely generated by the democratic party. His idea of solving the problem is to continue wrong democratic thinking which got us her to begin with. A party divided against itself will fall. The decocrats are so divided against themselves, that they only offer disastrous options for America. He has to go.

    Think as you will, you are granted the right to do so...........but, I think NOT.

    You did not ask my "why".........and the reasons would be many.

    Obama does not deserve another four year term as President of these United States.  He has proven that he does not care about the wishes of the people nor does he seem to care about the main law document of our nation, the Constitution of the United States of America. 

    To be sure, yes Congress needs to be changed as well.  After all, Congress has a much lower approval rate than does Mr. Obama.  However, the question was geared towards our Commander in Chief. 

    He is not taking America down the correct road as evidenced by his policies, his appointments, his actions.  There has been very little that has been positive and truly pro American from this president.  He does not see the power and greatness of the people that are this nation.  He believes that only government, big and huge government, is the only solution.  He believes and has proven that he and he alone knows what is best for each and every one of us.

    Obama does not care about perception and that perception can be a type of reality of those that view his actions which is why he constantly spends millions of dollars on vacations when many Americans can barely afford a night out at Chuck E Cheese.  He has played more than 90 rounds of golf in 3 years in office proving his rather callous mentality of the American people.

    Obama had the Unites States Congress on his side for the first two years of his administration and what he gave us was not progress.  Instead they gave us one huge government bill turned law after another.  Capped, of course, with what we call "Obamacare" which to this day, 2/3 of the American people oppose. 

    No Obama does not deserve another 4 years of ruling (not governing) against the Constitution, the States and the People.  And Congress should be fired and replaced as well.

    yes i think he should. Now as for congress they should all be replaced with people that care about us and not keeping money in there pockets. so before you bash a man who was left with a mess of a country  think who realy did us in. Bush and you all love that man. so why not give a man who has been  denied every thing he asked for since been in office. He cant get us better education, more money, less tax or even better country because of congress. If you ask me i think congress is the cause of america down fall not obama. An we all know why the dont want  him back in office. His first term he had to do what bush left but if he gets a  second chance he can do  more then what congress will alow. That why insted of helping the man run the country they have been trying to inpeach him sice he won. So reread what you wrote and realy think about the past trem and aks your self why did the not aprove his actions. who cares about his wife, kids, or cultre i want some one who will help my kids life. Not keeping money in rich people pocket.....

    I believe that he does.  He has only had 4 years to try to fix almost 12 years of problems.  The problem here, though, is that I don't think he wants to take on another 4 years.
