Who said The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency?
At this point, it seems nobody said it, or perhaps it came from an anonymous blogger who dislikes the president. Some people have claimed: "This quote was translated into English from an article appearing in the Czech Republic as published in the Prager Zeitung of 28 April 2010." But the problem is there's no evidence such a newspaper exists, nor have any reputable sources been able to find it anywhere. We see this on the internet often-- someone creates a quote, posts it to a blog, and suddenly it takes on a life of its own. Certainly, the president has political enemies, as all presidents do. But many of the quotes that claim to "prove" Mr. Obama is disliked are questionable. This one certainly seems to fit into that category.

The majority of the voting citizens of the United States of America voted for him on November 4th, 2008. He received 365 electoral votes, while his main opponent, …John McCain of the Republican Party, received only 173. Barack Obama also won a majority of the popular vote, 52.9% (69,456,897) while John McCain only received 45.7% (59,934,814). President Obama ran on a progressive campaign of change. It is clear that is what the American people wanted. Presidential candidates must work through a long and difficult process to win the election. Stages in the Obama road to president: 1. Win the Democratic Primaries to become the Democratic candidate for president. This required defeating Hillary Clinton, among others. 2. Win the Presidential Election by the people and electoral votes. 3. Take the Oath of Office There were many factors at play: 1. Developing a group that was able to beat the Clinton machine. 2. There was large public dissatisfaction with the Presidency of George W. Bush. 2a. President Obama's team was able to promote the idea that the then Senator Obama was an 'anti-Bush' candidate, and that John McCain, despite being a self-professed 'maverick', was more closely tied to Bush's policies than he would like to admit. Obama's campaign was freely able to denounce Bush's policies and decisions. 2b. John McCain tried to distance himself from George W. Bush's decisions and policies without publicly denouncing Bush. He did not want to be labeled as a Bush supporter since the 43rd President was so unpopular as President at that time, but also didn't want to alienate himself from them either. 3. McCain (his Republican opponent) was also a huge disappointment in many ways. His 'maverick' attitude and status caused many within his party to not relate to his ideals. 4. McCain's choice of Vice President repelled many Republicans, independents, and Democrats alike. Sarah Palin's attempts at serious news interviews were disasters, causing much ridicule and many satirical spoofs. 5. President Obama was able to rise above the bigotry and prove that race was no longer a valid deciding factor for most Americans voting. 6. He came to the plate with low political baggage compared to the opponents. 7. His campaign ran on a platform of change from the ways US political processes had been being done and played to the contempt many voters felt for Washington "insiders", panderers, and lobbyists. 8. Media support: Obama quickly gained much more positive popular media support. One of many factors was the humor that was elicited by the antics of Sarah Palin, it was difficult for many audiences to consider the Vice Presidential candidate a serious contender, and that eroded confidence in McCain for his choice of her as running mate. Media attacks: False rumors constantly put up in the rumor mill with made-up attacks (like the "Birthers" with the Obama-Kenya lies, the false Obama-Muslim/terrorist claims, as well as the communist/socialist fear mongering) ran popular with some Republicans who were firmly decided in their vote. But their constant hyperbole, which was heavily covered by media, backfired. These over-the-top and non-plausible attacks left the majority of voters with distaste for the attacks, and it cost McCain, although he did eventually attempt to clear up some of the lies. But, it was too little too late and many voters already identified more with Barack Obama with sympathy for his being the object of so much hate, than they credited McCain for his attempts to squelch the hateful lies. 9. American people were largely dissatisfied with the current government, particularly the two wars, large budget deficits, and tanking economy. This enabled more disaffected voters to come out and vote, both to punish the current administration and to affect change; these people tended to vote for Obama in the election. 10. Barack Obama is an excellent orator, debater, and author, and his speeches and books struck a chord of hope for change for many people. 11. He won the presidential nomination in part because of Hillary Clinton's distracting bid. 12. People from all walks of life supported him. * His family helped him a lot. * He was able to raise a lot of money to get his message out. * The DNC' s 50 state strategy. * There was a mandate for change. * His youth, vitality and oratory skills. He was elected by the populace of the U.S.

Barack Obama defeated Republican John McCain by winning the popular election on November 4, 2008, winning 52.9% of the popular vote. He was officially elected by the Electoral… College on December 15, 2008. His inauguration was on January 20, 2009. Then, on November 6, 2012, President Obama won a second term in office, gaining 332 electoral votes to Mitt Romney's 206, and also winning the popular vote 51% to 48%.
No. He is not the president of North America, nor is he president of South America. There is no one person who is president of either part of the world: North America and So…uth America are continents and they contain many countries; for example, each of the countries in South America (Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Venezuela, etc.) has its own leader. Mr. Obama is president of what is called the "United States of America." The United States is situated in North America, which includes Canada (with its own leader), the USA (with President Obama), and Mexico (with its own leader).
He promised change. He promised to close the prison at Guantanemo. He promised transparency in government. He promised to end the wars in the Middle East. He blamed th…e Bush administration for everything. And many people believe he lied about being born in the US.
Barack Obama is the current and 44th president of the United States. He was a US senator from Illinois immediately prior to assuming the Presidency. He is a Nobel Peace Prize …winner. He became the first African-American president of the United States in 2009 and is running for a second term in office in 2012. For a list of accomplishments he has made in office, see the related question below.
He ran for the first time in 2007-08, and won the election in 2008. In 2012, he ran for a second term, and was re-elected on November 6, 2012.
While I don't think all politicians in America are doing things for the country and I do think that they take money from lobbyists to do what they do that is sometimes counter… to what the people need, I don't think that is what motivates President Obama. I think he does care for the people of the country and wants to improve lives and save lives. I think he does love America and what the country stands for. Yes he does, DONT QUESTION THE BARACK!!!
Barack Obama was born on Friday, August 4, 1961, at 7:24 pm in Kapiolani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital, in Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii, USA.
he donated food to the country
Because it is the surname of his parents, and therefore, his. The President's first name, Barack, is a Swahili Arabic/Islamic name that means "blessed." In Arabic, the root …word is used in many other phrases * Mabruk! = "Congratulations!" * Barakallah feek = "May God bless you" * Barakah = blessings from God (feminine version of the name) President Obama's middle name is Hussein, which means "good" or "handsome" His father, a Kenyan student named Barack Obama, Sr., married his mother, Ann Dunham, when she was eighteen on Feb. 2, 1961. After his mother remarried, he was adopted by his Indonesian stepfather, Lolo Soetoro, and President Obama's legal last name became Soetoro. He later changed it back to Obama. Sometimes when people call the President by only his last name, they are doing it to be disrespectful. The President of the United States should not be called "Barack" (unless he asks you to) and he should not be called "Obama". He should be called either Barack Obama, President Barack Obama, President Obama, or Mr. President to show the respect due to the holder of this highest office in the US Government, and to show the due respect to the office itself.
It depends on who is answering the question: his political opponents will say he has done nothing and his administration has been a failure. But his political supporters will …say that is unfair, because he has many achievements. They include: ending the war in Iraq, supervising the mission to kill Osama Bin Laden; saving the American auto industry; passing health care reform; giving working and middle class Americans at least two tax cuts, ending Don't Ask/Don't Tell, etc. You may want to go to the websites of both Mr. Obama and Mr. Romney to see the claims each side is making. But no matter which side you are on, the president has done a number of things during his first term, and probably wishes he could have done more.
While he was elected in November of 2008, his oath was taken later, as is the tradition. The president was sworn in on January 20, 2009, with the First Lady at his side.
Who is Obama? Barack Hussein Obama is the 44th President of the United States. Obama won the 2008 Presidential Election with his running mate Joe Biden. Until the 2010 mid-t…erm elections, he had the support of majorities in both Houses of Congress. What does he do? Barack Obama is a President. To understand what he has done, let us analyze his first 1000 days in office. How America has improved since this President took office: 82 rounds of golf. (on average, once every 12 days) Increased the national debt by $4.2 billion per day (on average)Lost 2.22 million jobs12 million more Americans are living on food stampsGas prices have risen 80% His Energy Secretary wants to bring gas prices to the levels of Europe (around $9/gal)Decreased all drilling, therefore increasing dependence on foreign oilDemonized fracking and limiting the number of eligible permits approved, therefore increasing the cost of natural gas and heating.5 million more Americans are underemployedPassed a National Health Care law nicknamed 'Obamacare'Only 34% of all Americans approve of this law, only 52% of Democrats approve (as of October 2011)Being reviewed by the US Supreme Court for Constitutionality on the basis of the individual mandate You may add bullet-point entries to this list, but please do not delete facts, regardless of your opinion and/or how these facts make you feel. Most notably he became president of the USA
No, this is yet another internet myth. He is a Christian, and most recently has attended Episcopal (Protestant) services. He has also attended services from other Christian de…nominations, including United Church of Christ. (His wife Michelle was raised in the Methodist tradition.) But because some of his political opponents, and several conservative talk show hosts, believe he is not religious enough, they have spread rumors that he is (pick one) an atheist, a satanist, a communist, or a Marxist. None of these myths has any truth to it.
