How Obama will be remembered in the history books

 

If Obama gets re-elected and the economy improves, he will be remembered as our first all-black president.

However...,

If the economy tanks and Obama doesn't get re-elected and all the ills of our society gets blamed on him (i.e., if he royally screws up), he will be remembered as our first half-white president.

Hell, he's not even half black since his daddy was part Arab. And he won't be remembered well... hopefully just another sorry, progressive one termer.

The only thing he'll be remembered for is for being the first black president. I think that Obama will get the boot and NOT be re-elected. We dont want to give him a bigger chance of royally screwing up

Side: True

True.

I've been curious to see what happens when we get around to electing a full black president; Obama's admin has already made claim on being the first black president, so will this new, hypothetical president be campaigning as the first real black president? Or will Obama be remembered as the first half-black president?

Of course.

He was the first black president, the world is never gonna forget that.

I don't live in the states, but other than he's black, I don't know what 'big thing' he did .. did he do anything else worthy remembering?

Okay then! Then he will only be remembered because of his skincolor.

That is kinda lame for a president.

Yes, a lot actually.

The main things will be healthcare and some of the bail outs.

I don't think that any President who doesn't win a war for America will be remembered especially well. The same applies for a lot of countries after they get bored of their current leader.

For example, a lot of Prime Ministers in England are remembered badly or not at all, but Prime Ministers such as Winston Churchill, who was the PM during World War Two, is remembered with respect and will be for his 'good speeches' and comfort he provided. I don't think that's especially exceptional for a head of state, though. Many people in the conservative party are good speakers, but I doubt they will be remembered as much as iconic, successful war leaders, such as Winston Churchill.

I think he will be remembered as the first Black president purely because he was America's first President who was'nt White, wether he will be remebered fondly only time will tell

The President will be remembered for The Affordable Health Care Act because millions were able to get health insurance who couldn't afford it before.
