In Obama’s 8 year term as the president of the United States, he has made incredible changes. But along with this success stories are failures too. As what’s been said, there are 2 sides of the coin. And though, Barack Obama put his best foot forward, there is no denying that he has not pleased everybody. The Obama Care program alone gathered many controversies despite that applaud he got from a few who appreciate the program.
A good point to remember is that he tried, and till the end of this term, he never stopped trying and putting the best of himself for the country, for his fellow Americans.

And a response from a retired professor of Psychology:
Habib Fanny gets it right. There have been major accomplishments, easily documented. As with any president there have been failures. From my perspective he only did about 25% of what he promised and 10% of what I hoped he’d do. About par for any President, I suspect.
The biggest downside of his election was that it ignited a lot of dormant or implicit racism. It’s hard to see the vicious attacks on him as an outsider as anything other than racism driven. Not his fault, of course, and it’s hard to imagine a black politician that could be less of an outsider than Obama. Unfortunately we’re now reaping the “benefits” of this hostility in the campaign of The Don. The GOP has a lot to answer for in that regard.
