God I love that man. Put your Obama love in here, let’s remember the good times.


#2

Yeah, he’s always seemed like a great bunch of lad.

Oh well, onwards and upwards!


#3

Michelle > Barack

Got a lot of affection for them both however despite the fact that he’s ultimately been something of a disappointment


#4

Was so happy when he closed Gitmo.

HOT TAKE


#5

Almost ridiculous how charismatic I find him, I’d like to meet him more than pretty much anyone I can think of.


#6

he’s a human being… but probably the best president ever.


#7

Remember when he kicked all those Russian diplomats out the country and sent us (further) on the way to WWIII? That was good.

I mean he’s obviously a total dude, especially on a human level (as much I can say that without meeting him), but I’m wary of easy hagiography.


#14

He’s been hamstrung for a lot of his time in office, and the increase in stuff like drone use is a massive blight. But yeah, he’s a pretty remarkable bloke. Can’t think of another president who’s served 2 terms and would’ve won a third at a canter had they been allowed to run.

#16

shady as fuck obviously, but better than the two presidents either side of him.


#17

Always invited round to Twentynine Towers for a brewski :beers:


#18

Best public speaker of my lifetime

coolest dude in power

still, unprecedented mass surveillance & continued droning of civilians &tc

can’t have everything I suppose, there’s only so much elbow room inside the American machine

Also of the mind that Michelle would make the better President/Leader though

love him for this though;

Cheers Obama, maybe President Kanye will make you a Supreme Court judge in the future

the time he began to sing in a church

His legacy is definitely a complex one - he’s done some fantastic things and some horrendous things, and with such a hostile and immobile Congress.

But ultimately I think he is just a thoroughly decent man who tried to do so much to be inclusive and idealistic against so much opposition. I think the amount he did to appeal to common decency will become even more apparent when contrasted with Trump the cartoon.
