Too much to list
So....Greatest achievement. He prevented America from going into a Great Depression, brought us out of the recession, creating economic growth.....People forget that when Obama took office, the stock market was plummeting and we were losing 400,000 jobs a month.
Biggest failure...my opinion...Libya and Syria....Libya in particular. Khaddafi was a stabilizing force who kept that region under control and there was no good reason for the United States to remove him. Obama ordered air strikes calling it a “humanitarian mission” which led to his overthrow. The end result, Libya is now a failed State with an open slave market.....Syria wasn’t all his fault as Bushes removal of Saddam created a power vacuum for the region leading to the creation of Isis and expansion of Al Quada. But he should never have made that “red line” comment. He also helped prolong their civil war by arming rebels whom turned out to be Isis.

Good things... Well, previous to his presidency, Bush Jr. had really flushed our nations economics down the crapper. During Obama's presidency, unemployment went from 10% to around 4.7%. He began talks to decrease tensions between the US and Cuba. Huge progress was made for LBGT rights, and generally made us look good on the world stage.
Bad things... Launched a healthcare plan that was an economic disaster, inflated the American deficit dramatically, really slacked on pushing LBGT marriage as a national issue, really slacked on doing anything about unwarranted police shootings of blacks, and was generally more talk than show.
Basically, he was mediocre. Had he of been a white man, he'd go down in history as entirely forgettable.

Good: The Paris climate agreement, the Iran nuclear agreement, Obamacare.
Bad: Destroying Libya, interfering in the politics of Honduras, drone program, the white suit and waving with a coffee cup
