How would you rate the role of Mr Barack Obama as the President of the United States of America? Do you think that he is doing a greatjob as the President and has fulfilled all the expectations from him or there is yet every scope of improving as the President?

How do I rate President Obama? I rate him as a work in progress! He has done at least one thing he promise and was the heath bill. I has been working on getting the economy up and running,too! When Obama took office he was stuck with the wars in Irag and Afganistan. He was also stuck with the economy problem! I think he will do a few more of his promises. If he doesn't by 2012 we can vote to elect a new president or relect Obama! So time will tell!

His health bill as written is a joke at best. At worst it is a thinly disguised effort to exercise more control over the American people by forcing them to buy something they don't want and can't afford. Obama is evil and I said so before the election and nothing he has done since the election has changed my mind one iota. At least my conscience is clear: I did not vote for him.

I think he has been very detrimental to our nation and hopeful that he will be a one term president

Would you explain why you think him very detrimental to your nation?

Primarily it is the insane spending that has taken place. All the presidents from Washington to Bush2 had borrowed 9 trillion dollars. In the past two years Obama has added $5 billion more! It cannot be sustained!

hi as An American citizen I think he is doing pretty well for a new President who got the eight year mess George W Bush left him. So he has made errors and he has also done some good things. He has by nature of his being Colored divided this country into feuding democrats and republicans and I hate that so much.I just wi sh so many here would qit bashing and accusin him of so much nonsense its not even funny.

Hi Ms. Hattley.. hardworkinggurl here, See what so many do not remember is that when he walked into office he did not create the issues. They were there stirring from all the past presidents. Some how Americans believed he would walk in and fix everything instantly. What Americans forget is that he is one person and well they were expecting a miracle. Since he did not in one term repair the issues they call him bad. The issues America has today came from so many previous not to mention republicans had started and wrecked. So if in so many centuries many men have not been able to fix then why would they instantly expect, one new one to do so in one term.. Sort of puzzles me.

What can I say, some say he is not fit for the role of president; some say he done his job right and well. I would be in the neutral position. As you can see, every politician might not fulfill their promises that they made before the election done. After that, they might go different direction, or not mention what they had promised before. It will be the same for the next president too.

No doubt, it is a routine affair on the part every politician to promise right and left but not to fulfill those promises. But I think Mr Obama was awarded with a Nobel Prize for his promises only and not for their execution.

I think he is doing the best that he can as when he walked into office he did not create the issues. Something most people forget that he is one and in one term there is no way to repair the issues that so many previously created.

He has delivered the bitter pill and is struggling to stand up. It is unlikely he will ever finish what he started, given the opposition.

Unfortunately with any president here of late all I've tried to hope for is that they keep half of the promises they make. None of which have been capable of doing that. Obama is no exception. And unfortunately the majority what he has pushed through has gone against the general consensus of the public. I just don't get why one president can't just be straightforward with the american people so if nothing else we're not dissapointed.

Obama was elected by the sheep of our country who listened to the media and caved in to the pressure to elect a black president. They didn't look at his platform or what he wanted to do or what his track record was. The man has no scruples and is an illegal president who has done everything in his power to continue to undermine the liberties of the people...his healthcare reform is nothing more than this. If he really wanted to help those of us without any healthcare coverage, he would work to cut the costs of healthcare which are ridiculously high for what we get. When a 15 minute doctor visit costs over $100, that is way too much. Not to mention the cost of a hospital room these days. For what you get, staying in a hotel with an on-call caregiver costs less than staying in a hospital. At the same time he has done nothing to pull us out of Iraq and just keeps on keeping on the same travesties that previous presidents started while adding a few of his own.

Yeah, they were saying the same thing about Viet Nam which is why we were there for so long when we should never have been there in the first place. The situation is exactly the same.

I'm only allowed to complain about him because of the fact that I did take part in the election in 2008 and I didn't vote for him. I don't think that he has really done a lot for this country in the two years that he has already been our president. It seems to me that he is doing nothing but multiplying our federal debt and also hurting the individuals in the country. I think that there is still a potential that he could make something of his presidency, but I really don't know if it is going to happen.

I have read the replies before replying myself. I word carefully so I do not insult anyone. I am a veteran of the United States Army. If he was my Commander in Chief for the first time since I served during Viet Nam I would have to honestly say I would consider going AWOL. Listen carefully. He cannot openly stand and speak to a group of people without a teleprompter. WHats that about? Every day in high schools and colleges across America we are told to stand and deliver speaches and assignments with and sometimes without note cards. If you can't genuinely talk to people without being told what to say how can you serve? I don't understand the black white issue. For me it was never about who was going to be the first black president. If it had been my choice, it would have been Martin Luther King over this president. He was loyal to the American public and if you listened with your heart, God Bless Mr King I am white and I so admired him and his words (that were not by a teleprompter by the way) Second I would have voted for Jessie Jackson over Obama. This is not a black white issue. When I went in the military I had to strip down all the way to underwear show my birth certificate that I could serve show my education documents, and take a battery of tests some of which I knew nothing about but I did the tests and passed. I am amazed that we the American people take a backseat over everything we have had to do and show and prove who we are on a daily basis that this President with basically no experience was allowed such a position. I have to be honest...I think we still need to know about his birth certificate. But I did learn one thing a couple of weeks ago on a talk show, to get him out of office (impeach) it would take more time than just allowing him to finish his tour. He has spent more money and taken more vacations than any other president in his short term in office He has more security than any president in office, and he has to fly his personal chefs...So does that say he does not trust anyone? When he does go out amongst the American people for like 2 minutes...and some regular person asks him a straight forward question he replies We are buying shrimp? If any officer of the United States military did a reply like that he would have been reprimanded. But this is our Commander in Chief. If you notice people he really is not Commanding he hands the job over to more people than he does taking care of business. The poor guy just does not have the answers. But we can say one good thing about him...he sure knows how to spend our money to make sure when he leaves office he will leave the Americans recardless race or creed in poverty!

Any President that had the mess that he came to was going to have some difficulties. However, I think that Mr. Obama...well he hasn't done the best job to be honest with you. I think that he had just mismanaged a lot of things and really has not done the best job all things considered. Some people do talk a good game but then again, politicians in general do that. Therefore, it is really hard to take any of them at face value and unfortunately, Obama has not really done the best. Providing the Republicans do not send anyone stupid up in 2012, I don't see Obama enjoying a second term as President but anything can happen.
