1) Doesn't feel the need to go into a new war - even when he can.

Obama's first new war


2) Took on huge challenges coming into office and has remained calm nose to the grindstone "No Drama Obama" ever since. No Shock Doctrines - just handling one problem at a time and using diplomacy.

No shock Doctrines only because he has not changed anything major since bush - he is more of the same. Kept the patriot act, kept guantanamo bay and kept finding new ways to restrict freedom's - what freedoms has he added?


3) Knows that $ runs the world (or at least learned fast) and isn't afraid to piss off both parties while looking at the world stage with other leaders and growing the markets 50%


He sure does he has taken out the biggest loan in US history
Obama added more national debt than all Presidents from Washington through to Regan combined



4) Releases real # (or at least more realistic than Bush or Reagan) on unemployment with regards to semi employed and those who've given up


Two years ago today, President Obama signed into law a $800 billion jobless stimulus bill that promised to keep unemployment under 8 percent, current unemployment even on the offical figures is 9% and we all know how accurate they are.



5) Pushes a health plan (in the face of criticism) knowing it's flawed but a start in a country that has talked about it but done nothing for way too long.


Yeah pushing idea's that you know are flawed is always a great way to get things going. *sarcasm*



6) Sees the Natural Gas vs. Nuclear Power power struggle playing out during Japan and doesn't cave to the petroleum leaders without providing balance to both


Probably has egg's in both baskets.



7) Sees the Yen / Dollar / Euro power struggle and doesn't pull a Bush crash and grab

"The NY Fed has confirmed it helped in efforts to weaken the Japanese currency, thereby making the purchase of imported goods more expensive for the Japanese people. "
Associated Press
Weakening the Yen showing total disregard for the poor Jap's trying to purchase things overseas for recovery and rebuilding materials and instead making sure the US can get what they need cheap. Kick em while they are down.



8) Realizes that the US looks ridiculous on the world stage grandstanding with our economy - so approaches large scale growing mid east revolutions and Acts of God with calm, compassion, humility, diplomacy, realism and intelligence.

He is calm because it is all situation's he and his country can benefit from.



I'm not saying he's not a figurehead. I'm sure that what we see is a team effort.
I'm not saying he's perfect. But so far the US is still here and in October 2008 I honestly was not so sure we'd make it this far this well. We don't know, when things are bad, if they could have been much worse. It's not impossible. When you look at Egypt, Lybia, even Japan, you have to just LOVE the US.

Yet we still have the same system with exactly the same corruption being aloud to happen that landed the US in the 2008 GFC situation.



If there is anyone on ATS that thinks they could do a better job...

Run for office.


Ron Paul can do a better job and hopefully will run for office - if he can't turn things around even a little bit then there really is no hope.

Obama has kept some promises - but all the big ones he has broken. EPIC FAIL

Wrong, he has made a new war with Libya by the US taking command in Libya and setting up Naval blockades..etc This is an act of war. Plain and simple.

Handling one problem at a time? Are you Joking! His answer to solving the problems at Guantanamo was to close it down... Has it been closed down? Calm with the economic problem?


In the first 19 months of the Obama administration, the federal debt held by the public increased by $2.5260 trillion, which is more than the cumulative total of the national debt held by the public that was amassed by all U.S. presidents from George Washington through Ronald Reagan.
Souce


Sorry again you are wrong, he has acted like a Child on his alowance day and threw all his money at it in turn creating a massive "Stimulus Bubble" that will collapse, just like all bubbles do.

You think he is releasing the real numbers?!?! The real numbers for unemployment are considerably higher.

Real Numbers

Apparently, you are completely in the dark. Did you not see the "Flash Crash" that happened on the Yen?

Flash Crash

You really think this is a good time to crash the Yen when they need to import goods from the US to rebuild and it is going to cost them a lot more to do so now?

Should have stayed out of it IMHO, you do not see them helping Bahrain when they are killing people, instead they are assisting the government there kill protesters by aiding them with military hardware. Why? Because strategically we need a puppet in Bahrain for our US 5th fleet. Makes me sick as a human to see them choose strategically where they want to help and what will be of the most benefit.

He is taking advantage of these situations....more than you know.


Overall your points are not valid

I wonder sometimes what people like you are going to do when Obama and his manwoman are out of office and you are told the real truth as to what a narcissistic lier this person really is or was.

Weather you like or dislike Obama does not matter,weather you have the ability to be truthful to yourself is what is important.If all you can do in life is live by and belive in idealoligies then you will be disapointed.My point being "realism",to make a statement that this person is the strongest president in history is not only nieve but foolish.

When are people going to realize EVERY PRESIDENT since the creation of the Federal Reserve has been corrupted to serve the few with exception to JFK. Every other President of the past few centuries has been nothing more then a LYING CROOK.

I'm sorry but you have no idea what your talking about OP. I could oppose every single one of your "facts" with great information that states the opposite.

Obama has kept the war in Iraq and Afghanistan going. He's bombed Pakistan and now Libya.

He's spent this nation into a hole of debt we'll never grow out of.

The only reason the markets are up my good friend is that the simple idea that the dollar is now worthless.


Get your facts together before spreading false information.

Richard Nixon Really? He may have eaten him for lunch but that's only because he was war-crazed and well... crazy. I mean come on people if we're talking bad presidents Nixon is at the top of that list. I applaud Obama for what he has done in sticking to the plan he's had and also like the OP said pissing off both sides by doing so. You want this country to get up a leg, abolish the party system all together and have these people run as Americans.

If anything Libya is a war we SHOULD get into, I mean if standing up for rebels in the face of a dictatorship isn't American then I really don't know what is. Especially when the rebels have openly asked for the worlds help.

This boy child is the most incompetent, vapid and weak individual to ever sit in the seat of power. He is a stuttering gibbering idiot without his machines and handlers. He has no original thought or any spine at all. The world that lapped up this phony is now looking at the US in shock by the outright indecision and reckless abandon this amateur plods through his time in office.

Obama has overseen the largest deficit increase from Washington to Bush combined. He has ushered in one of the most self destructive policies that bankrupts every country in the western world, eventual single payer health care. He has set race relations back by 100 years by his racist divisive appointments. He has overseen record unemployment and implemented the most anti small business policies in the modern world. He has basically shut down all domestic energy policies in the face of a very hostile world. Obama has a racist agenda instilled by his Kenyan father and his anti British sentiments, to make the West pay for all the injustices it forced on the world: ie, make Whitey pay.

This joke of a President would not last the first round with Teddy Roosevelt, JFK, Reagan or even Clinton. Hes an embarrassment that was elected by immature college kids with Che Guevara shirts that have been brainwashed out of their identity, blacks that would vote for their own skin color even if it was Satan himself and white people racked with senility and in the death throes of white guilt. Jimmy Carter can breathe a sigh of relief now.

Strongest President ever? Andrew Jackson. Fact.

While imprisoned by the British during the Revolutionary War, an officer demanded that Jackson shine his boots. He refused and the officer slashed him across the face with a sabre.

His entire immediate family was killed during the war which caused him to go on a life long rampage...Charles Bronson style.

Andrew Jackson was a master of Gun Kata. He dueled at least thirteen times...for fun. When dueling Charles Dickinson, Jackson gave him the first shot. Guess who won? Spolier Alert: His face is on the twenty.

When Richard Lawrence attempted to assassinate him, both guns misfired. They were later found to be in perfect working order thereby proving that even firearms learned not to screw with him. Jackson then beat Lawrence nearly to death with his cane until he was pulled off by his aides.

He had a parrot that he taught to swear. It had to be removed from his funeral because of it's vulgarity.

He threw two massive parties at the white house which nearly destroyed it. One of those involved a 1,400 pound wheel of cheese.

His nickname "Old Hickory" was given to him by his soldiers directly based on his awesomeness.

Wait...are we talking about strong policies?

Tripped up as soon as you left the gate.

I guess continuing the Iraq and Afghanistan campaign doesn't count? How about bombing Pakistan? No.. ?

How about the fact we may be bombing Libya within the week?



Doesnt anyone watch the news? the U.S has already fired 110 tomahawk missiles into Libya. they already bombed the crap out of them, so they dont get shot down.

For starters NO dictator or monarch has EVER claimed the executive right to keep people in jail even if they are found innocent-EVER

Interesting that Hitler and Mussolini both received the NPP and Obama just following these great leaders footsteps

John F. Kennedy, one of few presidents who dared to go against TPTB and the only president so far who dared to do this: www.youtube.com... .
He had to pay with his life though.... Not a perfect president, but a brave one and he is to be respected for that....

I've read the original post and I've read a few replies. Let's put all of this in the proper perspective.

Obama has no true power, he is a puppet. He does the bidding of his NWO masters. The last true President of the United States was John F. Kennedy, who as we all know was assassinated. Every president since JFK has been nothing more than a puppet.

The American political system is merely a charade, a horse and pony show. We are given the illusion of choice, when in truth we have none. Who ever happens to be the president of America does not matter. If McCain had won, the same stuff that has happened under Obama would have happened under McCain. It TRULY does not matter who is president. It TRULY does not matter who we vote for. It TRULY does not matter if we vote. It TRULY does not matter if we do not vote.

If you want to give credit where credit is due, then all credit would have to go to the Rockefeller family for having complete and absolute control of America. It is the Rockefeller family that runs America. It is the Rockefellers that tell Obama what to do.

How can you say Obama is the strongest president in history when he is nothing more than a public figurehead?

Jude11,
It does not take a time machine to fix things. Just start actually teaching the Constitution in public schools, in English and focus on where things have gone of the track. Sound money policy will be the result, unemployment will go up among those who work in the Federal Reserve but hthat whould be a good thing.
