    Good points but in 2 years I think there's the possibility of doing more than he did. He should have ended the drone programme for instance, shut down Guantanomo Bay all of which he gave speeches promising he'd do.

    Then you have to look at the 2010 mid terms, if he was doing so well and doing such a great job why was there such a large swing? (I don't actually know as don't follow US politics enough but he had quite a large majority at the time).

    Call it what you want, a politician with more experience and more willingness to play along gets more done.

    Obama's intentions were admirable, his ability and experience were lacking.

    To think that people said that we should wait and see before saying that he was a fascist

    The federal and political system has been systematically degraded since Reagan. That was one of his his main ambitions. There is now an overwhelming majority of politically appointed positions, often held by utterly incompetent people, instead of professionals. And the GOP now only consists of ass lickers.
    The state of that country is unbelievable!

    He is just a mess, lashing out in any directions. He can't cope with rejection.

    You make that sound like a conspiracy.

    It shouldn't be surprising that a party who (rightly) believes in small government reduces the size of the government.

    It's not been reduced. They've just replaced professionals with politically appointed, incompetent officials, making it more political and less efficient.
    Most experts that study USA say this.

    I am genuinely worried he could start a civil war out there. I am usually opposed to protests and some on the BLM movement may have dubious motives but on this occasion I stand with them.

    Oh, there is a party. Having Trump get all the attention is perfect for the most sinister of them. They're busy making life worse for most Americans so the rich can get just a little bit richer. They've stacked the courts with conservative judges. A second term would mean at least one more SC judge and an end to whatever remaining rights ordinary people have over there.

    The constant attacks on mail votes has a secondary objective: The GOP (and probably quite a few Democrats as well) wants to get rid of the US Postal Service. I'm sure that's entirely down to their belief that privatisation is good and nothing to do with the bribes involved when awarding the contracts.

    His main interest in attacking postal votes is voter suppression

    The pile of brick that was left for him to undo before he could even get to what he wanted was nearly insurmountable. If you know anything about American politics, you'll know the GOP are not about to entertain anything close to bipartisan behavior. He actually did extraordinarily well by the country during his time. I was no fan of bank bailouts, neither drones, but those were both acts of true bipartisanship. I have never seen a republican presidency yield close to the same.
