Obama shouldn't be portrayed on any currency because he hasn't finished his term and he isn't dead yet.

He would have to do something good to even be considered and there are more deserving presidents than him.

I agree Jackson was kind of a douche.
but there are plenty of perfectly good dead presidents who still aren't on any money.

He also the first Democrat President, and he reduced the federal debt, vetoed the National Bank, and fought against the Electoral College. Not every President who overrides congress on military action is George W. Bush or Teddy Roosevelt. Some of them are good statesmen caught between popular opinion and congressional opposition. The People wanted the Indians removed. Was it the right thing? No. Was it the moral thing? No. But the People who elected him wanted to see it happen.

Everyone president you look at will have a blemish of this kind of their record. It's a messy job. He still has done more good them Obama has. Give Obama 6 more years, then we can talk.

You have to be dead before they put you on a stamp or on money.

Obama doesn't qualify.
