View Diary: President Obama: One of the worst Presidents ever (126 comments)

  •  Obama will be a polarizing figure (6+ / 0-)

    For decades to come, similar to Reagan and Johnson. Although progressives have their disagreements with him, I believe Democrats will come to view him in a similar light to the New Deal and Great Society era Presidents. Like the Roosevelt-Truman and Kennedy-Johnson administrations, he has had policies unpopular with liberals (for Obama this would probably be the NSA that is most remembered). At the same time, his accomplishments through Health Care Reform, Immigration Reform, and the Recovery Act will have a very long lasting effect on our country.

    At the same time, I believe he will continue to despised by the right, to a degree perhaps not seen towards any President in a long time. Look at the right wing's response to his recent speech on race as an example. In many ways, Obama, through no fault of his own, has brought much of the worst of America into the spotlight.

    Republicans are far more socialist than Democrats. Just because they want to redistribute the wealth upwards does not make it any better.
