President Obama was an excellent president because he stood for old-fashioned values, the ones that I learned in school when I was growing up. The way the world sees things these days, old-fashioned values aren't as cherished as they once were. Or, maybe they are!
A good example is when he spoke during the Nobel Peace Prize event. Yes he received this award for being a peacekeeper, something I admire, something he couldn't grasp as early as 2009 when he was getting better at his job (figure of speech).
Wouldn't it be difficult to send three thousand troops to Afghanistan while preparing to except a Nobel Peace Prize award? I guess MLK Jr. was a role mentor!
So, is it that kids receive better values because they go to school to learn, or is it the parents these days?
Their record of awarding the Nobel prizes to the wrong nominees has become incredibly disadvantageous to the committee's respectability. One of the absolutely unforgivable decisions the Nobel committee made was to choose Al Gore over Irena Sendler. Beginning with one simple fact re these two, the committee knew she sought no awards but deserved the highest, just as they knew Al Gore lived a high life while promoting the idea that others should live sacrificially. Their own decisions have discredited them and the award. "Excepting" several people they have awarded the prize to would be a good move on their part. They've even questioned themselves on the one you mention here.
I liked Obama, as a person. As a president, except for the obvious of being the first person of color to hold the office, I think he ranks with Jimmy Carter.
Someone please define , "Good President " , Likeable , polished , ideologically ineffective , NWO inclined , climate friendly , increasing social security blankets ,immigration friendly , the Muslim world loved him ................? But "Good" ?
He sure wasn't cop friendly nor military friendly , he created major decline in our race relations , he effectively raised our social services costs , welfare , deficit ......................
According to " The Week " The Obamas have been granted the NetFlix rights to creating a series of shows of one platform or another about the left's impression of the Trump administration ?
Sound like a "good President " ? Not to half or actually more than half of America at this point ?
Obama Legacy V !
Obama rating ? What rating ? Just as in what legacy ? Even his own party see's it's voters moving away from candidates in waves , What ? Yes , even the democratic party [ at least today ] says it wants border protections , a strong economy , more jobs , ................Democrats are going to vote for the policies that are good for their families ,You just have to stop reading this leftist news media and it's made up polls and watch the reality TV for once,
