President Obama can and should be impeached for not defending the Constitution and several other anti-American actions. 11mons ago from a Republican in Santa Clara, CA.

Is there something below dissaprove? He is a true ideologue. A Progressive in the Woodrow Wilson mold who has a fundamental, Hegelian disdain for the Enlightenment ideal of "natural rights" that this nation was founded on. 11mons ago from a Republican in Rye, NY.

"Disapprove" didn't seem like a strong enough word. He makes changes and polices that are not within his authority to do. Modifies laws without congressional approval. CHOOSES who has to obey the law (sorry, gives out "waivers"). If I couldn't pay for my house, I would LOSE it. BANKS can't pay their bills and get $700 billion dollars, and virtually NO RECOURSE so that it can happen again. Canada spends LESS per capita than the U.S. We have %40 uninsured. They have %5 uninsured. Their government negotiates prescription costs based on HOW WELL IT WORKS. We pay what they tell us to. 11mons ago from a Libertarian in Edmond, OK.

I approve of the job President Obama is doing. However, I believe that he and the country would be more successful if he had a supportive congress and if the GOP was able to control the Tea Party. 11mons ago from a Democrat in Southlake, TX.

Disappointed. 10mons ago from a Democrat in Libertytown, MD.

I like President Obama as a person and I really liked his "Yes We Can" slogan and the dream he had of making a difference in America, but I now feel it was either a very well acted cover or that he has since caved to quite a few corporate interests. Gitmo is still open. He signed a stronger version of the NDAA into law, giving the President the right to designate and hold anyone as a terrorist. He is seeking to prosecuted Edward Snowden instead of rewarding him and the President is conducting closed door meetings on the TPP. President Obama has also failed to enact labeling of GMO's and he allows the corporate/government revolving door policies which allow for corruption and conflict of interest to continue. 11mons ago from a Green in Mesa, AZ.

Generally approve, but am very disappointed in his support of the expansion of executive powers started by Bush. 11mons ago from a Green in Longmont, CO.

He cannot win not matter what happens. President Regan was not a good president. He was a figure head and people adore him. President Bush, the second one really had no power. When will people realize it is not the president making the decisions but he money behind them. The first Bush was more in line with his money bakers. R. 11mons ago from a Republican in Morrison, CO.

Worst possible socialist ideology implemented now after the first 80 years , collapsing economically and morally, a once moral and wealthy country that is becoming more hated and propagandized from with in and from out side as well. Becoming hated. Not the old America as much as the new. 8mons ago from a Republican in Howell, MI.

He's doing what he thinks is right, however often I differ on what is right. 11mons ago from a Republican in Oviedo, FL.

I do not agree with his fundamental approach to the Presidency but, given the near complete financial meltdown at the beginning of his first term, he has not done badly. 7mons ago from a Democrat in Tallahassee, FL.

The President is mostly just a figure head and we can blame congress for what does or doesn't happen for the most part. It doesn't matter which part is in charge all they're interested in is pushing their own agenda instead of working together. 7mons ago from a Republican in Billings, MT.

His intentions are good, but he is trying to hard to get certain agendas passed that are not good for the country as a whole. He is also circumventing Congress, which is currently a do nothing institution, but there is a reason that each is supposed to be equal. He needs to find ways of not alienating the opposition and to bring more people into a working relationship. 7mons ago from a Republican in Arlington, VA.

Strongly disagree with President Obama job and firmly believe he is totally incompetent which does not fall under rules for impeachment. 7mons ago from a Democrat in Houston, TX.

I am neither dissatisfied nor satisfied in his job. 8mons ago from a Democrat in Wichita Falls, TX.

Approve of some stances like expanding Medicaid. He should set a path toward a single-payer system. He should move to cut subsidies to oil companies and dramatically expand deployment of renewable energy, energy efficiency, mass transit and electric vehicles. He should end the drone wars as they are creating new enemies. He should curb NSA abuses and close Guantanomo bay. He should move to end the debt ceiling and put an end to these fiscal theatrics by the GOP. 8mons ago from a Green in Houston, TX.

Disapprove. While he is not solely responsible for the ridiculously hot mess the last 6 years have been, the nonchalant way in which he oversteps his authority as President, signs the bills Congress passes that run rough-shod over our enumerated rights, and is at worst complicit in the erosion of our rights by government agencies like the NSA, and at best (if you can believe him), too incompetent to know what these agencies are doing. I'm ashamed to say I voted for him the first time around based on his campaign promises and him being the 'lesser of two evils.' On the upside, I learned my lesson, and am done with the 2 party system for good. 8mons ago from a Libertarian in Sanford, NC.

On most things his actions and presence have been unimportant. He has made a number of important decisions on issues which I disagree with strongly. He has also made a number of important decisions on which I think he did a fine job. I think he's no worse than an average president, better than some, and while I would prefer other people in office, I don't think he's been a terrible president. 8mons ago from a Democrat in Garden City, ID.

I agree with his goals but am disappointed in his results. I voted for him in part because he was supposed to be a "consensus" leader -- yet he has not achieved consensus with the Congress or the American public. I don't know whether his lack of success is due to primarily to poor advisers, racially motivated campaigns to defeat his goals, or his own weaknesses. 8mons ago from a Democrat in Georgetown, TX.

Disapprove, he is too conservative and does not do enough to push for the change that many of his voters, especially younger people sent him to Washington to provide. 8mons ago from a Green in Lake Mary, FL.

Approve of Health Care, Climate Change actions, support for gay marriage. DISAPPROVE of killing people with drones, spying (NSA bullshit), supporting militarization of police forces, protecting Wall Street thugs. 8mons ago from a Green in Jamestown, CO.

No one is perfect. Every president has views and makes decision that not everyone agrees with. In this case I do not agree with everything and feel focus of the entire government is in the wrong place. 8mons ago from a Republican in University Park, PA.

I think no President is perfect. I dont fully agree with his politics but he is doing what he said he would. I dont disapprove, I disagree. 8mons ago from a Republican in Dallas, TX.

Approve on some issues, disapprove on others. 8mons ago from a Democrat in Minneapolis, MN.

President Obama came to the office with good intentions, but he is more moderate than I like. Also I am disappointed about Guantanamo, the use of drones, and the continued wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. 8mons ago from a Green in Brooklyn, NY.

Better than Bush but not the savior everyone thought. 8mons ago from a Democrat in Santa Barbara, CA.

If he was white he would have been impeached long ago, it may sound racist but it's the truth. Take any headline, subsitute the Bush Administration names and the left would have pulvarized what Obama has done. 8mons ago from a Republican in Lancaster, PA.

Disapprove, he has many good policies but he, and his administration, are terrible communicators. 8mons ago from a Democrat in Washington, DC.

He has not delivered on many of his promises but I feel this is because of the racist congress. 8mons ago from a Democrat in Marfa, TX.

If he tried to do what he campaigned on I would approve but since he has not I disapprove. 8mons ago from a Libertarian in Atlantic Beach, FL.
