Quite a few people believe that the No Child Left Behind program does not work and disagree with President Obama who would like to continue the program. They believe that it is up to society to want to receive education and that a program will not achieve better education. However, in my opinion a program like this at least provides an educational opportunity if someone wishes to take it.

He would like to implement a health care system which is run more by the government, and provides healthcare for everyone at either a reduced price or for free. This idea is opposed by many who believe that the government will only make the health care system worse than it already is. In my opinion it is important that everyone has health care available to them.

Sometimes it is difficult to believe that something so insignificant can still be used to claim dislike for someone. However, some people do dislike President Obama purely because of the colour of his skin and they do not know anything about his policies or what he stands for.

It has been stated that a lot of his promises about change, which he made before he was elected President, have not been met. Some people argue that a lot of his ideas sound good but are impossible to put into practice, especially whilst the economy is the way that it is. In my opinion maybe some people are a bit too quick to judge and should allow a bit more time or until the end of his Presidency.
2 It is Thought That He Lacks Experience

President Obama is quite young compared to previous President’s and other members of the Senate, it is believed that due to this fact he lacks experience. Also he has less than five years experience working in congress, which in the whole scheme of things is not a very long time.

Many people dislike the idea that he would like to implement a global poverty act that would send billions of dollars over to offer countries when people in the United States require help. It is not so much the fact that they oppose the fact of helping other countries but that there are people suffering at home.
