I’m not understanding why so many people are mad at President Obama. 

-He ended the war in Iraq
-Began drawdown of the war in Afghanistan
-He saved the auto industry
-He was able to get (kill) Osama Bin Laden (remember, GWB promised he would get Bin Laden back in 2001 but failed)
-He has created over 5 million jobs
-He refuses to make the middle class pay more taxes while giving tax breaks to the wealthy
-Repealed 'Don't Ask Don't Tell"
-Toppled Mohammar Ghaddafi
-Passed Wall Street reform
-Passed health care reform
-Improved school nutrition
-Increased fuel efficiency standards
-Improved America's image abroad
-Kicked banks out of the student loan business
-Increased support for veterans
-Passed credit card reform
-Extended unemployment insurance
-Provided payment to wronged minority farmers
-He will not allow Medicare to be vouchered
-He will not allow Social Security to be privatized

SO, IS THIS WHY they’re SO TICKED OFF??? hmmmmm

Why are people so angry at President Obama?

Because he's NOT a Stale, Pale, Old White Male.    

Obama has dug us out of the ditch "W" put us in and we need to continue to move FORWARD.

-He ended the war in Iraq

Bush did that.

-Began drawdown of the war in Afghanistan

Not quite.

-He saved the auto industry

He bailed out the unions with our money, he saved nothing.

-He was able to get (kill) Osama Bin Laden (remember, GWB promised he would get Bin Laden back in 2001 but failed)

Another thing that Bush deserves most of the credit for.

-He has created over 5 million jobs

Less people are working no than when he took office, not a good thing.

-He refuses to make the middle class pay more taxes while giving tax breaks to the wealthy

No. (see healthcare law).

-Repealed 'Don't Ask Don't Tell"

Big deal.

-Toppled Mohammar Ghaddafi

Another screw up.

-Passed Wall Street reform

Nothing.

-Passed health care reform

I though he wasn't taxing the "middle class". Another fail.

-Improved school nutrition

Not any of his business what my kids eat. But out!

-Kicked banks out of the student loan business

Another government take over, great.

-Extended unemployment insurance
Great, giving people an incentive to not get a job (if he could create any)

You forgot to mention that great job he just did in Libya.
