I think that Obama's biggest mistake during his 4 years as the US President was that he failed to stop the bombings and disputes in Iraq. It became evident that when the American troops left Iraq, it resulted to more bombings and deaths.

Maybe the biggest mistake of Barack Obama during his first four years as the US President was about the fast growing number of unemployed/underemployed Americans.It really do affects the stability of the US economy having a high rate of unemployment among the black men, low skill-workers and university graduates.

I think the biggest mistake by President Obama in his four-year tenure is about spreading incorrect order and peace in every country especially in America when in an emergency such that only the inhibition of the terrorists in their own country .

I think the biggest mistake that Obama did in his first four years as a president was his bad economic decision regarding the fiscal stimulus that he had written which is condemn as very poorly designed stimulus by some economists. He fought for a big total, but the wish lists he included in his total were utterly irrelevant to the crisis at hand.

For me, Obama failed to take an enough action regarding with the economic recovery of America. During his four years as the president, Unemployment has been higher than what he promised.

President Obama’s biggest mistake in his first term was to give awareness in lowering the Unemployment Rate. For this reason, America cannot create a quickly jump start economic growth to soften the recession of their economy; as a result of this, it can lead to affect the economic growth of other country as well.

I think one of the biggest mistake President Obama did is that he spent most of his political capital in his first year in office on health care, which he saw as a defining issue of his presidency. Because of this issue, there has been a big question about his making policies in his administration.

I think the biggest mistake that Obama did in his first four years as a president is trying to turn America into something it was never meant to be while giving speeches to flatter people and thinking everything is alright,he is more of a planner and not a doer based on the Americans. And also the American economy has not been recovered even though the White House declared the recession to be over nearly two years ago.

I think Obama's biggest mistake during his 4 years as the US President was his inability to tell the feeble-minded American electorate a good “story” that would help them properly appreciate his magnificent leadership. He was working so hard on his brilliant policies that he forgot to tuck Mr. and Mrs. American into bed at night with milk, cookies, and their favorite bedtime story about the joys of permanent double-digit unemployment.

President Obama’s possible biggest mistake in his first term is that he had overpromised and under delivered (especially when it comes to America’s economy). It leads his constituents, the Americans, to doubt his leadership skills.

I think the biggest mistake of President Obama during his 4 years as a US President is that he missed to commit on his obligation to give enough attention with the situation that his nation faced related with the crimes, economic status and some other concern.

I think the biggest mistake Obama did during his 4 years as the president of US, was when he supported same sex marriage knowing that he already disagreed in this petition. It took so long for him to support this, might do damage to his run for presidency. Not all people agreed and it caused different reactions not only from Americans but also all over the world.

In my opinion, Barrack Obama's biggest mistake is that he never fully inspire his nation. He is more of flowery speeches but he never make actions.

In my opinion his biggest mistake was to take on healthcare reform in first term at the cost of focusing on the economy. He compunded the mistake by doing a complete overhaul rather than going with a phased approach.

Well, I think Obama's biggest mistake in his 4 years of leadership in US was that in his administration, he was so determined to get rid some of the Middle East dictators that they have not even really stop to think about who would be replacing them. Unfortunately, this is going to continue to lead to more policy errors.

I think the biggest mistake of Barack Obama did in his first 4 years as president of US was favoring of same sex marriage and for some other reason he won on his 2nd term as president of US.

I think the biggest mistake that Obama did on his first term as president of the United States was that he didn't communicate well to his people to better well state his policies. Another is that, he was busy dwelling on a lot of stuffs but not everybody see's the outcome of what he does.

I think that Obama's biggest mistake during his 4 years as the US President was fail to communicate to his people in regards to his policies. So, his people get unorganized and they don"t know what's happening.

For me the biggest mistake of Barack Obama did in his first 4 years as president of US was he appointed more openly gay officials than any other president in US history. I don't want that he is favor with same sex marriage because first of all it is a sin in God's law.

For me,the biggest mistake of Barack Obama during his first four years as the US President was he extended benefits to same-sex partners of federal employees. Because it is not favor in the God's law and it is unfair with other couples.

I think, the biggest mistake of Barack Obama as a President of United States of America in his first term was that he had only executed policies to his countrymen without knowing his true responsibility as a President. He also promised his people a lot of projects to boost their economy from the current economic recession but he didn't do well in accomplishing his promised projects.

The biggest mistake of Barack Obama during his first four years as the US President was being focused on policy and getting the policy right. Thus,sometimes he forgot to explain the American people the reason of making the policy and it's development.

President Obama's biggest mistake during his four years as president of US was he forgot that a country would never be a country without the people and, he'll never be a president without the people putting him in position. He forgot to listen to his people and being in a conversation with them about where do they go together as a country proclaiming the sense of unity especially during the hard times.

I think Obama's biggest mistake in his first four years as the president of US was, he failed to be responsible on his words of promises to the American people and forgets about what leadership and unity means. This results to deepened the divisions in US society and the decrease of progress in their economic state.

For me, President Obama's biggest mistake in his first four (4) years in service was that, he wasted a lot of money in order to make a billion dollar economic stimulus that was supposed to boost their economy, but what happened was that, the money seemed to be thrown away which created record debts. One more mistake that he did in his first years was that he had made very bad decisions in relation to civil right issues.

I think Obama's biggest mistake was he wasted 5 billion for the green energy jobs. The supposed to be 5 million target jobs creates only 355 direct jobs annually due to his lack of ability to manage the allotted budget for the project.

I think the biggest mistake of Barack Obama in his first 4 years as President in US is that there are crisis in US that is not complete it in his 4 years of serving US country.
It leads to have low number of employed Americans and high number of unemployed or underemployed in US today..

The biggest mistake that Barack Obama had done for his past four years of his presidency was standing with the same sex marriage. Because we all know that it is against God's commandment. Sorry if I'm being rude. :)

In my honest opinion, I think President Barack Obama as the President of United States biggest mistake ever committed so far is he did not push the so called "Dream Act " through the US congress. This Act will give the illegal immigrants in the US to have equal rights as what a regular US citizen enjoyed.

For me the biggest mistake Pres. Obama had done this last four years is that economic state remained as is and was left unfocused. Another thing is that several problems were left unsolved including wars in Iraq.

sa tingin ko, ang pinakamalaking pagkakamali ni U.S. president Barack Obama sa kanyang unang apat na taon sa panunungkulan ay ang sadyang mabagal na pagtupad sa kanyang mga ipinangako noong kampanya niya. Sa isang banda, may nagawa nman siya subalit dahil sa mabagal na pagtugon, hindi n naging ganun kalaki ang kumpiyansa sa kanya ng kanyang mga nasasakupan.

Obama's biggest mistake in his past term is that he had approved the "same sex marriage" which leads him to be accused as an anti-Christ. Though this is a small issue to anyone, this is a big deal for me as a christian created by God, a leader must be a good example to his fellow men and I’m afraid of God’s countenance toward Him (falling economy) and to what he approved is an attempt to alter the foundations on which the US was built (US as Christian missionary).

In my own point of view, the biggest mistake that President Barrack Obama in his Four Years of being the US President is that in his early years, he had in his mind that his only job is about getting the policy right without even thinking if the American people would benefit on implementing such policy. This negligence has become one of the roots of Obama's failure as president.

I think Obama's greatest mistake is that I feel that he still didn't take an action to decrease the alike of squatters, to correct more the values of the teenagers there and to lessen the unemployment rate of the people he govern. Also as I've read some news, he admit that he just think he's job too easily that I see that he didn't mid that much the problems that he should solve eagerly which are very important today to the American people.

In my personal opinion, President Barak Obama's biggest mistake last four years is he created a large pool of unemployed people because he focus on the other aspects of being the one who control evrything. In this mistake he also produced an pulling down the economic status of his country.

In my honest opinion, I think President Obama's biggest mistake was "not story telling". Why? because, story telling is a better way to communicate and democracy needs a better way to understand certain issues and arguments during elections.

In my point of view, Obama's biggest mistake during his 4 years term as president of the United States is the rapid growth of unemployment and not telling it to the masses. He failed to tell the story of the situation of the state because he fears that people might think that he was unsuccessful in his economic policies.

Obama's biggest mistake in his past term is that he had Renewed the PATRIOT Act with increased provisions, and he also signed the National Defense Authorization Act into law. Citizens can be detained without trial under the NDAA, which is obviously very bad.
