    That won’t work. What they think are the good things are what we think are the bad things.

    They should write one bad thing they think about him, and then we won’t feel so down about it.

    One good thing about Obama being prez…well the only thing i can think of is that this was Hashems choice and it must be for our good…although at the moment (and the past 4 years) we dont see it.

    PBA – Come on.

    1. President Obama is a great husband and father, a good role model for America in a time when family values are being compromised. He has never openly supported non-family values.

    2. President Obama has continued providing military aid to and having military exercises with Israel. In particular, he strongly affirmed his support of Israel during the debates.

    3. President Obama is very charismatic. People like him. Although he does seem to have a bit of a natural antipathy towards Israel, he has put himself above suspicion by having Jews, and not just any Jews but Orthodox Jews, working for him. He can’t be too much of an anti-semite in person.

    4. Sometimes a president who doesn’t seem to openly love Israel, can do a lot more behind the scenes without being criticized by the media.

    The only and I mean only thing I can even stomach to say is that he seems to be a good father and husband. Who doesn’t though on the outside? Trying to be a bit positive after crying all night.

    Obama is the best President ever for kollel families and for those working off the books (not that I know any).

    Also, I don’t think we’ve had one race riot since he’s been in office.

    He is also terrific for those Jews who are in the United States illegally and need benefits not otherwise available to working Americans.

    I wont rebut your whole list now, but Obama doesnt have a good marriage and never did. He almost got divorced a few years back. Want to hear something more shocking? Theres very good reason to believe he is a mishkav zachor. Dont believe me, let google do the talking. We have a lie for a president. NOTHING about that man is as it seems. I dont dislike Obama because his color, I am not racist. I dislike him as a human being because I believe he is not a very good one. He is a cold arrogant disconnected person who lives for himself. He has no sympathy and he may not be capable of feeling for others. He is a very flawed person. I wont go on but do your research.

    we should see good in everything. President Obama has really white teeth.

    WIY – SHOCKING! You can find juicy stuff about a public figure through GOOGLE?? NO WAY!!

    I didn’t vote for Obama, although it’s prob just because of all the negative talk I’ve heard about him through other sources, and I have a feeling if he were the exact same person only white, this conversation would be very different….

    Oh, and I haven’t seen the dental records yet on Obama’s fourth filling in his right incisor yet; Mr. Trump, could you get on that please? After all, if you don’t agree with someone politically, he must be a lie and a cheat. And charities clearly only want your money if you’re buddy-buddy with the president.

    #903723

    WIY – “He is a cold arrogant disconnected person who lives for himself. He has no sympathy and he may not be capable of feeling for others. He is a very flawed person.”

    These statements aren’t actually based on “research.” This is called hyperbole. You’re entitled to believe whatever you want, but you make it sound like fact.

    Farrocks – “Does anybody know how many girlfriends Obama has on the side? No. And however many it is, he doesn’t want you to know. And would take all necessary steps to insure you don’t know.”

    Are you intimating that he is involved in extramarital affairs, or are you just saying that he could be. If the first, you have nothing backing that statement; if the second, so could anyone.

    I’m not a fan of Obama’s but I do think that a lot of the posters here subscribe to the attitudes that they hear in their communities without actually checking things. People absorb from their surroundings. If at home you hear Obama criticism, you will feel negatively toward him with or without evidence.

    torah613613torah – Where does one even begin with this?

    1 – “He has never openly supported non-family values.” Umm…He is pro gay marriage and transgender rights, how is that for family values?

    2 – “he strongly affirmed his support of Israel during the debates” Right, DURING the debates of the last election he did the same thing, and we all know how warm the relationship is between Israel and the US in the last 4 years

    3 – “he has put himself above suspicion by having Jews..working for him. He can’t be too much of an anti-semite”

    Yes, that certainly makes it clear, after all, its not like racists hire minorities, ever. Especially not for tasks they are “well suited” for and especially not to “put himself above suspicion”, that would just be misleading, wouldn’t it?

    4 – “Sometimes a president who doesn’t seem to openly love Israel, can do a lot more behind the scenes without being criticized by the media.”

    That statement does not actually say anything. However, there are two things to consider; 1 – he has NEVER been criticized by the media for ANYHING and 2 – He can do a lot of damage behind the scenes that we would never be aware of (ie – his remarks to Putin when he thought the mikes were off).

    Bottom line is, this guy is a disaster in the making and the country just enabled him to continue for another 4 years.

    Oh yeah, CHERRYBIM, it is nice to see that you are so proud of all of the illegal things you can continue to do with him in office. Do you not realize that these benefits you are talking about are actually stealing? There is no other way to categorize it. Honest, hard working people are paying more and more in taxes so that freeloaders can work “off the books” and collect benefits on top of it all. Or, as you put it, the ILLEGALS that “need” the benefits. In my opinion, these people are no better than the “brothas” out there. We, as a poeple, are supposed to be better than that

    WIY, I researched your claims on Google and the rumor about Obama almost getting divorced is 100% FALSE! It’s motzei shem ra, pure and simple. People speculated that Donald Trump was going to release divorce papers for the Obamas but all he did was offer $5 million to charity if Obama released his college transcripts and passport applications. The part about almost getting divorced was a RUMOR! And there is no proof either way if Obama’s parents were married or not. Why are you so quick to assume the worst about him? I prefer to believe that his parents were married.

    Point: You find on google what you want to find.

    (And I don’t like Obama either, but torah613’s was much more factually correct than yours was.)

    Obviously theres lots of true and not true stuff online, you really need to use your judgment and see who is saying it, what type of site, sources…. However don’t believe everything (or most things) you read in the papers because most are controlled by leftist liberal air heads who don’t know the meaning of the words truth, honesty, or integrity.

    OneOfMany

    Uh excuse me since when did google say half the world is gay?! That’s an outright lie, are you a Democrat? I just googled how many people gay and nothing of the sort comes up!!

    Frummy in the tummy – thanks.

    For the record, I am not convinced that Obama is a good president, but nor is he evil incarnate. I did not vote for him. That doesn’t mean I voted for Romney, either. This thread was about the positive, which I am always happy to highlight, on any topic.

    Working on it-

    1. Gay marriage. He stated that while he personally believes marriage is between a man and woman, he believes that civil unions should not be unrecognized legally. Later, he bent to the political winds and emphasized his latter view. Hardly a rip-roaring supporter.

    2. It doesn’t matter what he does but what he says. The real power of a president is that he has a bully pulpit.

    3. If you’re determined to see every move he makes as anti-Jewish, including hiring Orthodox Jews, who am I to argue?

    4. He has been criticized by the media and sure he can do damage. So could Bush. This is a pointless argument.

    I’m signing off this thread to avoid further conflict. I will read your response, don’t worry.

    WIY: What I meant was that if you google the name of any significant figure, you will find such speculation. I did not mean that if you google “Is half the world gay,” Google will pop up and say “yes.” An exaggeration on my part, I’ll admit, but I thought it was understandable.

    And stam, why do you think Democrats in specific are liars? To promote any political view successfully you have to be a liar. You’re kidding yourself if you think that whatever guys you’re rooting for are somehow immune to that.

    This post is dedicated to PBA.

    There are many positive attributes that President Obama has.

    1. He came from an somewhat unstable background, having been raised by his grandmother after his parents split and basically abandoned him, and he overcame that to become president of the United States.

    2. Unlike the overwhelming majority of people who enter top law schools with high-minded ideals and then forget their ideals and work for corporate law firms for lots of money, Obama returned to community work when he graduated.

    3. He embodies personal ideals, such as integrity and family stability.

    4. He is articulate and well presented, both important attributes for a leader.

    5. Jews who look back at the times when we were denied entry into various countries because of immigration quotas should look well at a president who understands that the majority of immigrants are honest hardworking people who are only seeking a better life for their families, and does not intend to round these people up and ship them off. Jews who remember those times and also want cheap cleaning help should appreciate it even more.

    Once you get past the racism and hyperbole and understand that both Romney and Obama are inherently decent, incredibly accomplished people who simply have different visions for the ideal America, it is possible to see the recent race as a choice between a candidate who can be America’s CEO, efficiently running the country to get the best possible return during his time as president, and one who is a properly dignified leader, a strong figure who stands for many of our important values, can represent us in a positive light to the world, and can more generally guide the country on the basis of core ethics and ideals.

    I posted an eminently reasonable list of good things about Obama, but apparently the mods want to cultivate the appearance that no one can think of anything, so it hasn’t been posted.

    Good things about Obama?

    I can think of only one- America, B”H, has not been attacked by terrorists.

    Other than that, I can’t think of much. A below-mediocre student with a sketchy ethnic and national background is vetted by convicted Marxist-Leninist terrorists, and has ties with anti-semites, Islamists, and other radicals, becomes president, uses charisma to get ahead (reminds me of Y”S), and socializes the country, while condemning Israel all along. Gevaldig.

    Just you wait and see. Obama will somehow find a way to repeal the amendment that states that a president can only have 2 terms. This guy found a way to somehow pass an unconstitutional law that requires mandatory healthcare, and more. He’s capable of anything and next thing you know, he’ll be president for the next 30 years, chas v’sholom. Goodbye America.

    LOL RebDoniel – Below mediocre student? He graduated two of the most prestigious universities in the world, from law school Magna Cum Laude (which means roughly in the the top 10% of his class.)He made the Harvard Law review, and became the first black person to become the president of Harvard Law Review. Even if he got a “race bump”, he was still better than anyone else before him who would have been entitled to that bump. He did such a good job editing one judge’s article that the judge offered him an appeals court clerkship – one of the most prestigious jobs that one can get upon graduation. But he turned it down to go into public service.

    (Note: I assume that you were happy with President Bush II, who couldn’t get into the University of Texas when his father was a Texas Congressman, and basically admitted to getting mostly Cs at Yale.)

    He had a 2.6 GPA from the Columbia General Studies division, which has a less rigorous standard of admission than the normal route.

    There is nothing respectable or admirable about Barack Hussein Obama. The conspiracy that propelled this menuval into the oval office is unbelievable, only surpassed by the stupidity of the American people.

    #903746

    Farrocks, it’s impossible to say that without knowing what his SAT and LSAT score was. What we do know is that he graduated Magna Cum Laude, which means in the top 10%. Race does not play a role in that.

    You can bury your head in the sand and claim that he’s not intelligent, but if you’ve read his books or spoken to people who understand politics, even his opponents, you would have to concede that he’s an incredibly smart person. You can disagree with his politics all you like, but if you refuse to acknowledge that there’s really no point in arguing.

    1. He is very good for investors. To make money investing one needs to buy low and sell high, and Obama will be creating new and improved opportunities to buy low.

    2. It will encourage the Israelis to rely on themselves and Ha-Shem, instead of praying to the Americans to bail them out of their messes.

    3. His support of abortion, contraception and homosexuality will encourage the “left” to engage in behavior that keeps them from having children, so perhaps they’ll go extinct eventually.

    4. His personal life is exemplary and sets a good model, unlike the previous Democratic president.

    The good thing about Obama is that he’s a politician. If Romney would have won we would have forgotten that “lev melachim beyad Hashem” and we would have felt calmer because we would have trusted in him instead. Hashem just threw us a hurricane, perhaps to show us that it is not a politician that is in charge, but Him. Obama will only be as good as Hashem allows him to be.
