How many of us love or hate Obama? Upvote for love, comment for hate with reason if not too much to ask.

Indifferent. Great orator, somewhat useless president (unless you count us bombing 7 countries in the Middle East). On second thought, his foreign policy has been no better than GWB

He's too theoretical. He's not grounded in reality. And unfortunately he propagated the entitlement mentality.

Don't hate, just disagree with him on most issues.

He made a great "queen of England" for us, while the rest of the government did nothing. That being said...probably in the bottom half of our presidents alltime

Respect him a lot as an individual, as well as Michelle. Definitely going to miss their class and how easily they connected with people, especially young people. He is one hell of a public speaker. But definitely disagree with a lot of his politics and the way he went about doing things

@D3 I'd argue the uptick in the economy over the last 8 years was not due to fiscal/legislative policy but loose monetary policy and reversion to the mean thus not attributable to the President. Other than the early stimulus package, what was done to support growth? Also, marriage equality was a Supreme Court ruling.

A1 appreciate your thoughtful response. It's refreshing to read comments where people can openly disagree but still respect those they disagree with

Generally, Presidents are given too much credit/blame for events that occur during their watch which they did nothing to contribute to. That fallacy along with recency bias (in many cases because he has been the only president in our adult lives) really drives unwarranted extreme reactions towards the nations executives.

Don't love his policies, voted for Romney and McCain and would again. That being said, I respect his intellect, believe he has good intentions and thinks very deeply about his actions. The people (including most of my family) who think he's the worst president of all time are delusional. And Trump scares the shit out of me.

People saying he was ineffective - did you also hold to account the GOP members who stonewalled basically everything his administration put before the House?

He was good, but Clinton and he made a mess of their foreign policy. Russia, Iran and china are having US for breakfast, lunch and dinner

Much respect for you all who can effectively disagree with his politics but still respect him as individual.

Disagree with him on most issues but respect the guy massively for his class and ability to bring Americans together
