      I like him a lot. I think he has achieved a great deal in the USA in the last two years and he is the first president to establish free healthcare for everyone in the country. That’s a major win because before people would have to pay thousands of pounds/dollars for healthcare or insurance and if you couldn’t afford to pay for treatment or didn’t have insurance you were screwed.

      Also he seems like a bit of a dude.

      Obama has had quite a tough time, mainly because the world economy has been doing badly. I would have liked him to do more on environmental issues, but he has put money into science in the USA, which I think is a good thing.
