    Um, why? I could give a lot of evidence of why Obama was a great president.

  • @Pogue He didn't represent all Americans, rather his favored groups. He drove a huge wedge between the races that continues to this day. His foreign policies were all unmitigated disasters. His administration participated in the most egregious fraud in political memory.

    For starters.

    Hey hey let's not forget, he was also the President overseeing what's being called the biggest scandal in U.S. history.  Presidential election rigging.

    The term “great” is relative.

     As for the United States, it was the first to experiment in governance built on the objective to protect and embrace the individual’s “unalienable Rights” from the crimes of others and from the crimes of government; unbeknownst to the founding fathers, they were following the constructal law, the law of evolution. As a result, within a short period of 200 years this form of governance changed the world like no other in recorded history through advances in technology, food production, and medicine; a social empirical data point offers a compelling example of what can happen when our unalienable rights are free to flow within the awesome machinery of nature.
