What exactly has Barack Obama done that conservatives are so angry about?

Barack Obama has changed the world. No other leader can match his accomplishments. He solved global warming, provided free healthcare for everyone, created millions of jobs and repayed the $14 trillion national debt. Why are conservatives still unhappy?

Next, he and his cronies spent an excessive amount of cash on failed coverage, that has validated incorrect ago, and stuff that they had criticized the Republicans of doing., and now he is making an attempt the equal factor once more, figuring out it doomed to failure and he can use it as a crusade instrument, plus nonetheless blaming Bush for the whole lot. He additionally promised an open govt and tons of time for all to evaluate any costs earlier than passage, whilst actually the wellness care invoice was once handed with out even the Democrats figuring out the contents. Yep, I'd say they have got motive to be pi$$ed.

    I understand the next thing on his to-do list is paying off all outstanding mortgages and give everyone with an income under 50 K a year a free new car, made by GM (Government Motors) but only if he is reelected next year. There will be plenty of money now that the debt has been paid.

    It seems like the primary complaint conservatives have with President Obama is that he's spent a lot of money.

    President Obama says that without economic stimulus packages, our economy would have ground to a halt after the 2008 financial crisis. Conservatives believe that his actions may have made that financial crisis worse in the long run, and possibly even in the short run.

    In general, I think that it's safe to say that both 99% of President Obama's supporters and 99% of his opponents don't know enough about economics to actually have independent knowledge of whether the stimulus bills saved us from disaster or chilled the economy.

    He’s smarter, a better writer, better speaker, better liked as a human being, made them look real bad, had 200,000 Berliners waving American flags during the campaign, showed some compassion for the average citizen, called out the corporate elite on all the breaks they’ve been given over the past 30 years, ended the torture program, gave healthcare to 911 First Responders, enacted the Fair Pay Act, supported the minimum wage, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, was against the Iraq War from day one, killed Bin Laden, prevented a depression and turned 820,000 jobs lost per month into steady job gains for two years, stopped greedy insurance companies from screwing their customers as they had been with recision, pre-existing conditions discrimination, etc. Food Safety. Repealed DADT. He was “too tough” on BP, so Repubs apologized to BP. Wall Street Reform. Credit Card Reform. Student Loan Reform.

    Lots of stuff he has done to make them angry. Anyone who has compassion for people really angers the right-wing.

    Every dammm thing he has done related to the economy has been exactly the wrong thing to do, and it shows in an unemployment rate approaching 20%. That brings up this. Either he knew what he was doing and if that's true it means he created the problems intentionally, OR, he has no idea about what the effect of his policies and programs would be and that would make him even more dangerous to the economy.

    The first guy go the right answer. Obama's only real crime is in getting elected, taking the White House out of Republican hands.

    The Republicans have owned the White House for so many years that they see it as -their- house. When a Democrat gets elected president, they feel a huge injustice has been done, they've been screwed out of their property. It doesn't matter how good he is or even how conservative he is, he's a criminal and the Repubs' first priority is to get him outta there.

    Repub congressional leaders, in both houses, have come right out and said that their top priority is to limit Obama to a single term. In other words, defeating Obama is more important to them than actually running the country, as they were elected to do. I think this is really shameful. It means that they don't want the recession to get better, they want things to get worse and worse in hopes that people will once again vote for 'hope and change' in 2012. They don't want Obama to get credit for healing the recession. They will refuse to cooperate with him on anything, even things they think are a good idea, even things they want themselves, because they don't want Obama to get credit for them.

    Barack Obama went against the will of the people. It really doesn't matter what your opinion is on the subject, the truth is the healthcare bill was pushed through against the will of the people. A president who is not "for the people" is not a leader, but a worthless piece of trash. Why don't you and Barack go to England if you like it so much.
