PARTIAL LIST.........cash for clunkers; failure to get a SOFA in Iraq; Abandoning Afghanistan, the attack on Camp Leatherneck that coincided with the attack at Benghazi and cost the USMC an entire squadron and one very courageous squadron commander, leaking the intel on OBL and leaving the Pak doctor to rot in prison, US Marine stuck in TJ jail, running support to the Muslim Bros in Egypt and Syria, negotiating with terrorist and
allowing the Iranians to enrich uranium...How 'bout the criminal conduct at EPA and the harassment of Gibson Guitar, outing the head of the CIA mission in Afghanistan, failure to prosecute the culprits in the 2008 financial meltdown at Freddie and Fannie, Jon Corzine, Eric Snowden Get back to work and make this thing a proper sixty-four team bracket...it shouldn't take long.
How about outing Seal Team 6 who were quickly killed, giving GM's investors money to unions, the illegal intervention in Libya, mismanagement of the Gulf Oil disaster, Keystone pipeline, Questions about how the Obama administration handled the terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11 and 12, 2012, dogged the president for months. Republicans portrayed this as an Obama scandal but the White House dismissed it as politics as usual.
Among other things, critics accused Obama of downplaying links to Islamic militants in the runup to the 2012 presidential election.
The IRS scandal of 2013 refers to the Internal Revenue Service's disclosure that it had targeted conservative and Tea Party groups for extra scrutiny leading up to the 2012 presidential election between Democratic President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney.
The fallout was fierce, and led to the resignation of the head of the tax agency.
AP Phone Records Scandal
The U.S. Department of Justice secretly obtained telephone records of reporters and editors for The Associated Press wire service in 2012.
The move was described as a last resort in a leak probe, but it nonetheless outraged journalists, who called the seizure a "massive and unprecedented intrusion" into The AP's news gathering operation.
Obama promised to spend much of the following four years in the White House trying to address the causes of global warming. But he came under fire from environmentalists when he indicated his administration could approve the $7.6 billion Keystone XL Pipeline to carry oil across 1,179 miles from Hardisty, Alberta, to Steele City, Nebraska.
Does it or doesn't it? Does the health care reform law known as Obamacare insure illegal immigrants.
Obama has said no. "The reforms I am proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally," the president told Congress.
That's when one member of Congress famously retorted: "You lie!"
When sequestration was first put in the Budget Control Act of 2011 to encourage Congress to reduce the federal deficit by $1.2 trillion by the end of 2012, the White House and Republican lawmakers alike praised the mechanism.
And then came the budget cuts. And nobody wanted to own the sequester. So who's idea was it? You might be surprised, Obama.
Barack Obama has been called the "most anti-gun president in American history." Fears that Obama would try to ban guns fueled record sales of weapons during his presidency.
The Obama Bus That Cost Taxpayers $1.1 Million

President Barack Obama began traveling the United States in a shiny new, state-of-the-art armored bus in August 2011 as he began his campaign for re-election. So how much did that Obama bus, nicknamed "Ground Force One" by some pundits, actually cost? A whopping $1.1 million.

They don`t allow you enough words in this format to tell you all the things he has done that have people pissed off at Obama. If you had been watching Fox News for the last 7 years you too would not like him very much.

He landed us on Mars, made contact with the Decepticons, gave them subsidies and told them they're instant US citizens. Watch your cars very carefully. There are Decepticons among us.
BUT IN ALL SERIOUSNESS, it's best to do your own research on current news and events and come up with your own perception of the president and what he has done / not done and the ideals you stand for and what America should stand for. There are going to be folks on here who have their own biases both weak and strong and lean in different directions who will be giving their own points of view and sometimes either muddled with incorrect facts or ideas and that goes for both parties. I'm a Green Peace Conservative so I don't care which direction these folks or you lean, I'm all over the board; and yes, they do exist.
So research, dig and you will eventually find the answer for you :) and participate in digging into both Democratic and Republican biased news, you'll start to see some very interesting differences and correlations that may shock you in regards to agenda pushing and perspective.

He's actually a nice guy. It's his policies and how he responds to the happenings in the world.

Don't worry, even THEY don't know why they hate him. One day they accuse him of being too weak, and the next day he is a fascist tyrant dictator. They claim he uses executive orders too often, but the facts show he has used them far less than any modern republican president. They claim he takes too many vacations, but the previous republican took the most vacations of any president in our nations history. They claim they want him to 'uphold the law' by demanding that he ignore the law that THEY wrote and signed into law under the previous president. Irrational hatred and incessant fear mongering seem to be the core messages of the Republican Party these days.

You, and other conservatives, hate the President because he's a black Democrat.

Obama habitually lies and has done everything he said he wouldn't while also manipulating the people. He expanded the patriot act which he campaigned against, kept GITMO open which he campaigned against, continues allowing people get tortured which he campaigned against, increased our debt more then POTUS in history, signed NDAA which gives the Feds the right to kill or detain anybody without trial, funds al Qaeda covertly while selling them firearms while campaigning to disarm law abiding citizens, sold firearms to drug cartels covertly, campaigning to give criminals here illegally free citizenship, passed Obamacare which is basically a Ponzi scheme to generate massive profits for insurance companies, keeps trying to destroy free speech, expands the police state, orders drone hits which kills innocent children in mass etc... Everything he's done is helping destroy our country more so then even Bush Jr who I thought it couldn't get no worse.
