Essay On Barack Obama

Barack Obama does not have what it takes to consider himself a proper president. Although he has had some successes, President Barack Obama’s mistakes outweigh his successes. Obama has proven himself to be just like every other president the United States has ever had, worthless. President Barack Obama is an unfit president because of his healthcare plan, approval of the NSA’s surveillance of ordinary United States citizens, failure to pass many beneficial proposals, lying to Americans, and being a hypocrite.

It is understandable that he came into office of a country that had already been messed up by presidents before, but he has offered nothing but empty promises to fix it with. President Obama has failed the United States with multiple aspects: Obamacare, allowing the NSA to spy on normal citizens, not getting beneficial proposals passed, lying to America on multiple occasions, and being a hypocrite. His main failure as a president would be lying to the citizens of the country. In one of his famous speeches, Barack Obama said it was “time for a change.” This probably is not the change he anticipated.
