    I wish I took more interest in politics when Obama was president. I was surrounded by people who didn't like him, so I thought I didn't like him too. I like listening to his thoughts. He calms me down. Even if he's being serious about problems that need changing. I needed this after listening to too much trump. He gives me panic attacks.

    This was a very good video, but jeez how differently things look based on where you stand. To me it's been incredibly difficult for any Republican to get elected since the ending of Bush's term. While I understand the want to get diverse members into any organization, it's very difficult to get members of any minority group to run for any elected position in a country where they have been historically non-represented. This is for both sides of the isles, not just one, and truthfully we should always want "whos the best person" for the job. If that happens to be a person of color, a woman, a man, that should be the merit upon which we decide, not any skin colors, genders or sexuality.

    I would never want the enormous responsibility it takes to be president. Some do it better than others. I believe, having been through several presidents, from Bush to Clinton to Obama to trump, as an adult, some are definitely better than others in the respect of putting country first. I think self actualization or the ongoing attempt to have some self actualization is the first step. I think Obama is the first one in my lifetime that exhibited that. Let’s realize that the office of president, no matter what they say in their campaigns, once in office have an inordinate amount of red tape && bipartisanship to go through. The presidents I’ve lived through, I respect those that actually feel true disappointment in themselves for it not having been accomplished. Obama exudes this full weight && feeling of responsibility.

    US politicians, Obama included, fail to realise the harm US foreign policy has caused in the world since the WW2. It’s not always governed by humanity or democratic values. It’s aim is often to protect US interests; the economic interests of it’s big companies. Obama can’t undo the Iraq war but he can apologise for it and repay the damage it has caused.

    The Republican Party is the minority party--generally speaking--because it has actual principals. The Democratic Party tries to appeal to everybody, and that is not possible. So they lie. (moreso). It's all a sham. At the end of the day, it's just crooked lawyers having their pockets stuffed by crooked corporations.

    Two high-profile staffers from the U.S. Department of Education during the Obama administration are joining President-elect Joe Biden’s team in prominent roles. Both Catherine Lhamon and Carmel Martin will serve on the White House’s Domestic Policy Council, Biden’s transition team announced Thursday. Lhamon, the former assistant secretary for civil rights at Obama’s Education Department, will serve as a deputy director for racial justice and equity on the council. And Martin, formerly the assistant secretary for planning, evaluation, and policy development, will be a deputy director for economic mobility. Both Lhamon and Martin (who advised Biden’s campaign on education policy) could exert significant influence on Biden’s education policy from their new roles. Biden has picked Miguel Cardona, Connecticut’s education commissioner, to serve as his education secretary; Cardona has no prior experience working in the federal government. Carmel Martin had wide policy influence! As the assistant secretary at the Obama Education Department, Martin wielded extensive influence over waivers the administration granted from the No Child Left Behind Act, and the Race to the Top competition that provided cash to states if they adopted certain policies about low-performing schools, test-based teacher evaluations, and other issues. She was also involved in the administration’s School Improvement Grants. The Obama administration spent a great deal of political capital on Race to the Top and waivers, hoping that they would not only drive deep and long-term changes to K-12 policy, but also help set the table for a revamp of the main federal K-12 law. However, both ended up triggering significant backlash from teachers’ unions, conservatives, and others. Critics charged, for example, that Race to the Top imposed unfair policies on educators and essentially coerced states into adopting the Common Core State Standards, which grew into a difficult political problem for the Obama administration. Martin also worked as a staffer at the U.S. Senate education committee, at the Center for American Progress, and for former Texas congressman Beto O’Rourke’s failed presidential bid. In sum, Martin has extensive political and policy experience that no doubt were big factors in her new job at Biden’s White House. But her role in Obama-era education policies that teachers’ unions, among others, vigorously opposed bears watching when it comes to her influence on the Education Department under Biden. Catherine Lhamon worked on high-profile guidance! As the top official for education civil rights in the Obama administration, Lhamon’s office might be best known for two pieces of nonbinding guidance to schools. One said that transgender students had the right to access school facilities, like locker rooms and restrooms, that matched their gender identity, and that gender identity was protected under Title IX, the federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex. The other said that schools with significant racial disparities in school discipline may be in violation of federal civil rights law, and urged schools to rethink policies that lead to students being removed from classrooms for nonviolent offenses. Both the discipline and transgender-student guidance were issued in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Justice. They provoked a great deal of controversy among educators, lawmakers, and others. Supporters said they protected students and forced schools to live up to their obligations under federal law. But critics said they effectively imposed onerous new requirements on schools and, in the case of the discipline guidance, could lead to unsafe schools. The Trump administration rescinded both pieces of guidance. Biden has said he will reinstate them.

    I wish we could get out of the 2 party system. I cannot wait until the generation in power will finally retire. One of the reasons we should have term limits and age limits so we the country can change quicker. we could have people in power that want to make a change that have not been corrupted or turned cynic from years in power also have a more of a connection to regular people most congress members live in a bubble. problem with "defund the police" is too easy to spin. We shouldnt just have social workers cuz if violent have to send out a cop as well but should units of persons trained in both policing and social work

    Obama embraced the US drone programme, overseeing more strikes in his first year than Bush carried out during his entire presidency. A total of 563 strikes, killing thousands of innocent people.

    After listening to Obama i realized that he is afraid to be the one who will say , that the time for change is staring at all of us , and be willing to show the true leadership of what the truth is . Here is one example of his failed leadership , when a black professor and his friend arived to the professors home , the professor had some difficulty in opening his front door , both men had a few drinks and were a little loud , a nighbor heard them and called the police . When the police arived the two men were in the house , the police officer asked the professor , who lives in this house , the professor said to the police officer , go ask your mother , after he had shown the police officer his ID . The police officer did not like what was said to him and arested the professor for being drunk . When PRESIDENT Obama heard about his friend being arrested , PRESIDENT OBAMA SAID THAT THE COP WHO ARRESTED HIS FRIEND WAS STUPID , AND THAT IT WAS A SILLY THING TO DO . THE FLACK , HEAT , SCORN , THAT OBAMA RECEIVED FROM DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS , WAS TOTALLY INSANE . PRESIDENT OBAMA SHOULD HAVE STOOD HIS GROUND , AND IF NEED BE DEFEND WHAT HE SAID . YET HE CHOSE TO BOW TO THE HEAT HE WAS RECEIVEING AND APOLOGIZED .
