There is an ongoing debate as to whether President Barack Obama has been a good president. There are so many people that are polarized as to whether he was right or not, but it seems that the positive aspects of his presidency are much more prevalent than the negative aspects of his time as our president. Let’s look at some of the pros and cons associated with Obama, and allow you to determine whether or not he was a good president.
Positive Aspects Of The Obama Presidency
There are many positive aspects of his presidency which are worth noting including the fact that people still like him. If you think back to the George W. Bush administration, the polls were very negative about his time as our president, which is in stark contrast to President Obama. He has provided us with national health care which is something that no other US president has been able to do. He has opened up the borders between Cuba and America for the first time since the Kennedys, which many people see as a positive. Finally, Osama bin Laden is dead as a result of his desire to go through with a mission that led to the demise of this terrorist. There are negative aspects that need to be considered, however, before you can make a positive or negative assessment.
Negative Aspects Of The Obama Presidency
The main negative aspects of the Obama presidency have to do with the economy. It is still fragile, causing people to remember when Franklin D Roosevelt was in office, a time of our Great Depression. Voters do not think that he is managing the country well, and Americans are angry about the explosive growth of the federal deficits and the national debt under his leadership.
Although there are positive and negative aspects of any presidency, these are the facts that pertain to President Obama. It would seem that the benefits would outweigh the positives, but it just depends upon the subjective opinion and assessment of those that will look at this information.
