The Many Accomplishments of our Superman President Obama
The President Does Get Things Done
What Has He Done
Announcing the President as Superman he was elected twice by the people, his agendas have been altered to reflect more achievement in unexpected areas than he had anticipated. Important issues like the financial crisis of 2008 even before he got into his official office by President Bush and Al Chaney both laid that deal at his feet, and he triumphed. Crises like the automobile manufacturing bankruptcies, bank foreclosures, large corporate failures like Lehman Brothers, Bank of America almost lost everything, but Obama put his foot down and made them focus on doing better by paying back whatever loans they had messed up.. A newer focus now on same sex marriage, a war on terrorists, and medical emergencies with Ebola are crowding his day to day work.
Because he stuck to his guns on not to import oil from the middle east, rather to develop oil deposits that we already have at home, our gas pump prices have drastically dropped in the past two weeks. As of today prices in Maryland are at $3.09 a gallon for regular gas. Why, because he stuck to the job. He has not let the republicans hooligan activities like not working with him on major issues cloud his vision as to doing the right thing no matter what. President Obama has indeed accomplished much as the adult, while the republicans have behaved like spoiled rotten children who threw regular unprecedented temper tantrums much to the displeasure of their own counterparts, the democrats and the entire nation let alone the world stage. Americans are ashamed of the republican party.
Americans are supposed to be better than most of the republicans show how they are, we have been educated to do the right things to help each other out when times are not so good. We do help support other people when they are down on their luck, we provide food pantries for the really poor, free healthcare for our senior citizens in many instances and many other things as well. Our churches help some of the poor, with food donations to food pantries and some non-profit organizations also help with utility and water bills. Neighbors do help each other when they can because their churches teach how to help each others in need.
Republicans Want to Slash Budgets More
There are other countries that provide more citizen perks than the U.S. does. But republicans want to take more from U.S. seniors like food stamps, etc. In some states a one person home that relies on social security and a part time job are only getting $15.00 in food stamps a month. Try eating on that money for an entire month. We all know social security money is not enough to live on for anyone unless they live in a rent free place.
The republicans want to take medicare and strip it of benefits and make it a private entity.
What President Obama has done is:
Capture Bin Laden
Started Healthcare that provides millions of people from going into bankruptcy, protecting them from financial ruin by pre-empting people with prior health problems to be able to get health insurance.
Pushed business's to hire more workers and because of that, the unemployment rate has gone down dramatically.

President Obama has accelerated the equality of marriage laws to include Same Sex unions. By doing that he puts in place another way of adding people to pay taxes, those who will need more legal services, mortgages, and equal rights, all of which adds to the economy. Over 31 states now accept same sex marriage laws.
And last of all how can we forget the Wall Street crisis where banks and financial institutions were closed for fraudulent deals. In some areas that is still going on in the court system.
However, it must be noted that only one man has ever been convicted and sent to jail for his part in the massive fraud committed against baking customers, he is Kareem Serageldin: he said “I’m ready to pay my debt to society.”as he was given his sentence for covering up hundreds of millions in losses in Credit Suisse’s mortgage-backed securities portfolio.
In reality he had done far less evils than many other banking leaders of the time, but culture in the governments lawyering has changed the way they go after criminals in banking because so many of the banks were monsters in size and if that happens again, we would surely be in another recession.
Two More Years to Go For President Obama To Finish His Work
President Obama has two more years in office that he still has to get more work done. The primaries are happening now so we will know who will still be in office when the Presidential election comes up in 2016.
He still has lots to do, especially on the healthcare front lines.
