Please do not tell me he became president that is a given. What is the best legislation that he introduced? Which of his senate votes was the most responsible? Besides going to several colleges and earning multiple degrees (a very intelligent and educated man). What is his biggest accomplishment? Up to this point in history what will he be most remembered for?
I'll remember him for his work in destroying the freedom of American citizens and for moving this country closer to a socialist state and for his trashing of the constitution given the irony of his background ans a constitutional law professor!
I believe the Bush era with his patriot act and DHS started the ball rolling to remove Americans rights. The Department of Homeland Security spends most of its attention watching Americans. Obama has definitely supported the Bush initiatives when it comes to monitoring Americans.
True. I am assuming that most of them were in place before 2006, though, right? So then we can assume it was the Republicans, on balance... though I can imagine that many Republican representatives were not on board with some of those measures, to be sure.
I don't know; here in Canada it is rare for a party member to vote against their own leadership -- but maybe that's not true elsewhere.
The irony is that his greatest achievement was as a "community organizer", especially when you remember that most of his "community activity" in the past was organizing voter-drives.
In other words, he would never have won if he had not organized huge campaigns to get people out to vote who don't normally do so. He also used the Internet to great effect.
I'm making no value judgment about him, his government, or anything like that. I just think that, if you want to win an election, you need to get people to the voting booth -- he achieved that, and then some.
Most democratic systems are pretty bad on this score. In Britain and Canada you can theoretically form the government with only 30 or 40 percent of the popular vote... It happens a lot. That is not rule by the majority -- and neither is 52 percent (I mean, it is technically, but...): it is still roughly hald-and-half, so half of you will always be pissed off.
As to your point, Obama wouldn't have won at *all* presumably if he hadn't got all those habitual non-registered voters to register.
AdsenseStrategies Have you heard of the North American Union soon enough the US Canada and Mexico are to be one entity with one currency. The Amero it just has to be done in increments. This has already been agreed upon during the Bush Empire.
I'd say the "Beer Summit" was the only thing he's done that could be even REMOTELY considered beneficial (in the loosest sense of the word).
My favorite Obama moment was in the immediate hours after the tragic Ft Hood shooting, when he went on air and staunchly warned against "jumping to any conclusions about the shooter being an Islamic terrorist before all the facts are known," when that's EXACTLY what HE did with the events precipitating the Beer Summit. "Hi pot, I'm kettle. You're black."
Remember, an accomplishment is something that actually results in something good happening for the US. Something that is being used and taken advantage by the people. It is not just passing bills, or starting plans that...
in light of the current sociopolitical and socioeconomic situation regarding the United States of America? Do you believe that President Obama is doing the best job he can under the circumstances? Do you maintain that...
Were you all "America" in a fantastic shape financial wise? did you pay back your debts you owed around the world? Were you a drug free, Muslim free, raping free, human trafficking free, illegal immigrants...
Obama has used the Espionage Act, passed under Woodrow Wilson to shut down media opposition WWI, 6 times in 3 years, whilst it had been used 3 times since 1917, to target or shut down journalists that Obama targeted. In...
One of President Bush's arguments for invading Iraq was the strong Hussain-al Qaeda connection. The anti-Iraq invasion group said there was only very skimpy evidence of that and much stronger evidence that such an...
