News and information about President Barack Obama
-Please message the moderators with a permalink to the comment section for any submissions that don't appear in the new queue.
-This is a subreddit for news, commentary and discussion about President Barack Obama. Please do not use it as a catch-all category for submissions that are simply critical of actions of the federal government or American hegemony in general. Political stories that do not directly involve or affect Obama as an individual, do not discuss his active political involvement in a matter should be submitted to r/politics instead.
-While we welcome debate, stories and comments that are demonstrably false and/or make substantial allegations without credible evidence (e.g., "Obama still won't show us his birth certificate", or "It is well known that Obama was raised as a SUNNI MUSLIM", or "Obama is secretly gay", etc), and racist slurs and racially tinged commentary (e.g., "His mooching black ghetto ass has been living on welfare ever since he moved into the Whitehouse") will be removed, and are grounds for an instant ban.
-Gags, memes, image macros and videos that simply use the President's likeness are not considered "news and information about Obama".
-Posts should be about recent news and information directly related Barack Obama.
