      Curious to see what a Libertarian has to say about Obama (sarcastically curious)

    • a year ago

      Obama set unrealistic expectations and had to pick up after the biggest crisis to hit the US since the Great Depression... despite that, he still proved to be a successful president. let met put it this way, what could have Trump, Hillary, Johnson, Stein or anyone else done that Obama didn't do?

        @alexwrites I agree the only way to judge Obama is to compare his track record against that of another president who went through the same thing.

        Stopped killing innocent people in foreign lands to advance the interests of a few wealthy families maybe? Exposed the the oligarchy that america has become? Or maybe ended the unprecedented imprisoning of non-violent americans, just to name a few.

        "Obama has now used commutations to shorten the prison sentences of 562 people, more than the previous nine presidents combined."

        "Under another initiative, former Attorney General Eric Holder instructed federal prosecutors across the country to charge fewer people with low-level, nonviolent drug crimes and instead focus on more serious, violent crime. In the first year after the program was implemented, the number of drug offenders charged under mandatory-minimum sentencing guidelines fell by 20 percent."

        As reported by the Marshall Project. Not sure where you're getting your prison stat from.

        Exposed the Oligarchy? How so? Please explain.

      @loganfleckenstein what do you think he could have done better on the economic front pls? And given the capitalistic aerican system, it would be great to give realistic suggestions rather than third party idealistic solutions.... He inherited a terrible situation so yeah he was not amazing but realistically what could he have done? Including the wars... did he even have a choice? Are you suggesting that Americans should have withdrawn immediately???

          For a Gary Johnson supporter I expected him to talk about weed legalization for 20 min, glad to see something else

            Obama is just another stooge for the wealthiest families in the world. He may believe that he is doing good by continuing the agenda of destabilization in foreign lands, and the killing of innocents to further the cause of american business interests abroad, but it is still evil.

              Are people rating the actual debaters here? Or do people just click agree or disagree based on the headline post?

Tried to bully Great Britain into not voting in #brexit (AND FAILED)!! Negotiated with terrorists in Iran - A POLICY NEVER BROKEN BEFORE, tried to force a catholic organization to not only accept abortion but to pay for them,AGAINST CATHOLIC RULE, said that Trump was anti Semitic AND VOTES TO ALLOW PALESTINIAN OCCUPANCY IN ISRAEL, calls the rioters and looters in the riots "outstanding work", is on record saying "global warming is more dangerous than Isis" and even lying to the public calling them a JV league team, SPENT TAX PAYER MONEY ON CAMPAIGNING FOR HILLARY WHICH IS ILLEGAL BUT AGAIN NO REGARD FOR THE LAW, Doesn't recognize we need a border and wall- EVEN THOUGH HE SPENT AMERICAN TAZ PAYER MONEY SO JORDAN WOULD HAVE A WALL AND BORDER, sold weapons to the Mexican cartel which later resulted in the death of a border patrolmen "fast and furious" agreement.
