    Along the same lines as the President Bush thread.

    Take the alternating side. If you despise Obama - what has he done right.

    If you admire and respect Obama - what is he doing/has he done wrong?

    Thank you.

    My very first thought is "he's been a wimp". I don't care if it's because he is, at heart, a diplomat. I was devastated when he folded on the debt ceiling.

    He's at heart a community agitator and an empty suit.

    2012 can't come soon enough... good riddance to bad rubbish.

    The one thing I stated all along that he did right... was to not get in the way of the elimination of OBL.... other than that, I really have not agreed with anything he has done or stands for

    Killing bin Laden doesn't count?

    Does this help any? Check promises kept and see if any of them match your belief system.

    What he's done right was going after Bin Laden in Pakistan. Other than that? He's been the very definition of "underwhelming".

    Same answer as for Bush. What did he do wrong? Run for POTUS.

    You, too.

    Also, I haven't seen you in the Bush thread. If you can't admit Obama did anything right, can you admit Bush did anything wrong? Or are you truly a one trick pony, as I suspect?

    He did not kill OBL.. nor should anyone give any credit to him for that.... that is disrespectful to my military brothers and sisters... you know, the ones that actually planned for, and did the job
