12 Reasons Why Obama Is One of the Best Presidents Ever

I stumbled upon this emotionally driven fantasy devoid of any intellectual stimulus, more suited for the Onion, and had to share, sorry.

"I have yet to find the words to describe the overwhelming sense of satisfaction I felt on Nov. 4, 2008 when Obama won the popular vote by 53 percent. With tears in my eyes, and joy in my heart, I stood alongside people of color across the nation as we celebrated America's first inauguration of a black president. As a young black man, I felt a true sense of patriotism as I witnessed our country rally together to show, finally, that we are more concerned about who is the most qualified man for the job, regardless of race or age. As Obama so simply, yet eloquently, stated during his celebration speech -change had come to America -a change we so desperately needed after eight painful years of George W. Bush's colossal failure as our nation's leader."

Here are 12 reasons why Obama is one of the best presidents ever:

There is a huge elephant in the room...

he's not black, he's mulatto (mjuːˈlætəʊ) —n, pl-tos, -toes: 1. a person having one Black and one White parent.

Tired of the race card - especially tired of using it under false pretenses - I don't think color should play any part of an election. I know, pie-in-the-sky thinking but it's what I believe.

Matthew, You need some deep therapy. ~The Obama's are the first to break over $1,000,000,000 (One Billion) a year in personal expenses. The whole Royal Family gets a fraction of a fraction of that to 'keep' them.
~ Michelle Obama is the first FOTUS to join in the crony corruption, bringing her gal pal, Toni Townes-Whitley into the ObamaSnare Crime Op. TTW is senior vice president at CGI Federal, which earned the no-bid contract to build the $678 million Obamacare enrollment website at Healthcare.gov. CGI Federal is the U.S. arm of a Canadian company. ~Books will be written on this crime spree!

As a "non-minority", I find

As a "non-minority", I find "race identification" absurd. In fact, people I dislike tend to be the same "color" as me simply because there are more of them (Washington politicians, I'm talking about you). In any event, judging any person because of their skin color is foolish. I evaluate others by their attitude first.


I'm gettin' a nose bleed with this "high road" attitude of yours.


get the ball rolling. It's clearly time to end presidential term limits NOW! seriously; don't take me seriously.

Obama is the greatest thing since sliced pizza. In fact...

Obama invented sliced pizza - reason #13 on this glorious list IMHO.


Daily Paul cured my abibliophobia.

I agree.

What better way to shove Americans into a wide awake state than a president who is a committed socialist, communist, dope, pick your word. In this regard:


Thousands of doctors dropped by insurance companies and Obamacare which doctors can now take advantage of the free market, charge a fee for service and say screw Obamacare and screw the insurance companies.

This president has taught the people who are actively listening more about free markets and competition than any president in the history of the country. They say we get the president for the time. Thank goodness Barack Obama showed the American people that democracy which devolves into socialism, which moves into communism/dictatorship and ends in mob rule is a system manufactured by control freaks who are more than likely sociopaths. I believe even committed liberals, socialists, and communists will breathe a sigh of relief when this guy exits stage left.

Was going to post a reply,

but this made me vomit over my key board!


Wow. And this moron apparently wrote a book about teaching??? Holy sh*t.

And reading the comments (at the site, not here) says a lot about the readership of the huffington post. Could these people be any more out of touch with reality?

Sometimes I think this country may have a chance afterall. And then I read something like this.

I am shaken.

We are screwed.

Just saw this and voted it up, the mindset of such a one is

scary. If this were sarcasm, it would be funny. As a 'reality piece' it is worse than my writing in 7th or 8th grade, both logically and stylistically. (But then, I had a brilliant English teacher as a father! )

The only thing the first

The only thing the first black president ever did, was be the first black president, and i applaud it, for the breaking of PERCIEVED boundaries, THIS is not an issue in my mind but a boon, contrary to what others will make others believe, but that does not mean being the first black president gives him the right to promiss things in his campaign and then totaly lie afterwards in the actions he takes that are OPPOSITE to what he campaigned on, promissed, in order to GAIN votes, as it should not be tolerated by any who gain the position of governing, it is down right lying, and mr obama showed himself no better then any typical politician in this regard, but manages to deflect most of it by being the first black president who is well spoken...and no doubt uses the tool that is "PR" instead of the tool that is the truth (that last bit is an opinion of mine)

I did not curse the time the first black president of the united states came into office, i curse the time that i realised that he was no better then bush

Bump for

liberals wearing rose colored glasses. This is more of a wish list for Obama wantabe Pres.

It's a good laugh anyway!

Haha. Is this for real? That article lacks any signs of intelligence. It read like a "What I want for Christmas" essay I wrote in the 5th grade.

One of my first thoughts as well,

but I likened it to a junior high school student.

I hope people don't down vote this thread based on the title, it's not an endorsement, it's an example of the mindset of an Obama supporter, and it's scary.
