Why don't people like Obama??? He's only done good things!!!?
1. Passed Health Care Reform: After five presidents over a century failed to create universal health insurance, signed the Affordable Care Act (2010). It will cover 32 million uninsured Americans beginning in 2014 and mandates a suite of experimental measures to cut health care cost growth, the number one cause of America’s long-term fiscal problems. 2. Passed the Stimulus: Signed $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in 2009 to spur economic growth amid greatest recession since the Great Depression. Weeks after stimulus went into effect, unemployment claims began to subside. Twelve months later, the private sector began producing more jobs than it was losing, and it has continued to do so for twenty-three straight months, creating a total of nearly 3.7 million new private-sector jobs. 3. Passed Wall Street Reform: Signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (2010) to re-regulate the financial sector after its practices caused the Great Recession. The new law tightens capital requirements on large banks and other financial institutions, requires derivatives to be sold on clearinghouses and exchanges, mandates that large banks provide “living wills” to avoid chaotic bankruptcies, limits their ability to trade with customers’ money for their own profit, and creates the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (now headed by Richard Cordray) to crack down on abusive lending products and companies. 4. Ended the War in Iraq: Ordered all U.S. military forces out of the country. Last troops left on December 18, 2011. 5. Began Drawdown of War in Afghanistan: From a peak of 101,000 troops in June 2011, U.S. forces are now down to 91,000, with 23,000 slated to leave by the end of summer 2012. According to Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, the combat mission there will be over by next year. 6. Eliminated Osama bin laden: In 2011, ordered special forces raid of secret compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, in which the terrorist leader was killed and a trove of al-Qaeda documents was discovered. He also turned the American auto industry around, recapitalized banks, repealed "DADT", and toppled Moammar Gadaffi. The only people that don't like him are old racist white guys. Why do we even let people over the age of 45 even have anything to do with politics??? They're the ones that dont know what they're going, all they want is greedy, race, and religion based war, and all these dirty southerners and a few northern rednecks seem to want that too. We needed a change from that old white run government, if we have to have a white president can he at least be Italian??? Those guys are real and great leaders. Obama gave us that change. Now that we've seen the great governing skills of a man of color I don't wanna go back to the way things were before with all those white guys. All they ever wanted was war, money, and white supremacy...I'm done with them, and you should be to, but what i'd really love to see a Native American president and Obama opened their doors to, the doors to their own land. Obama is the President of Peace and Equality, those old white guys are the causes of destruction. Promise me you'll vote Obama. Promise me you'll vote for peace and equality and not destruction.

There must be a lot of old racist white guys in this country because come November Obama is gone. You can not keep living in your dream world forever. If he has done all those good things, why is the country in worse shape than it was when he took office.

Some might think it would be nice to be that blissfully dense, most non-ignorant people are tired of your cut-and-paste dishonest propaganda.

So, using your criteria that people over age 45 shouldn't have anything to do with politics we should then kick 0bama out since he's age 50.
