How to convince my father that Obama isn't that bad?
He doesn't want to see the good things he's done during his presidency but points out only the bad things. Compared to the previous republican president Obama was definitely better. He doesn't want to acknowledge the fact that Obama can make the economy better. He will vote anyone but Obama and I want him to do otherwise. How can I convince him? He's 60 years old and I'm 24.

How about using FACTS that prove Obama is "better" for our economy? Oh that's right. there aren't ANY facts out there to support such an assertion. lmao

He's a wise man and has experience, which is something you don't have. If you think Obama is superior, then please enter the real world and grow up.

If Obama can make the economy better, why the heck doesn't he?

Start by doing some research on the economists who've almost UNIVERSALLY agreed that the economy's better off with Obama's moves. Even conservative economists say we'd be far, far worse off without the bailouts. The problems with the bailouts were caused not by Obama but rather by the bankers themselves... More

You need to turn off his Fox News channel because he is brainwashed. It will take a few months to be deprogrammed so you need to do it now.

You can't. Obama is evil incarnate. He's the Devil on Earth!

Obama hasn't done one good thing since he became president. Obama's policies will make America weak financially.

There are bad points AND good points to Obama, but I believe the bad outweigh the good - that's only my opinion, though! You shouldn't aim to change his mind, but rather to enlighten him with the good points (if he's ignorant to them). Then, just allow him to make his up his own decision based on a greater knowledge of... More

I recommend telling him the best things President Obama has done so far in his presidency. However, if he's a stubborn, jackass-like Republican, PLEASE remind him that a lot of people have been disappointed in him because he was the next president after the 8 years of Bush hell that was dumped on us. These things... More

uhk Obama is doing the exact thing as Bush, which would make him worse then Bush because he hasn't learn the lessons from Bush. Even the good things he did wasn't that good. Killing Osama has gotten us in further hot waters with Pakistan. Getting Khadaffi endangers us with even far more radical leader and sends a... More

You can start by finding ANYTHING you can cite that Obama's done well - or at all. Since you don't know ANYTHING about it, your Dad isn't going to be easily convinced that you're right.

You'd be better off to listen to your Dad on this one. Once you open your eyes and ears and actually pay attention to what Obama's (and most of the other liberal politicians) true goals are, you won't support him either.
