Obama's achievements

Updated on January 26, 2012

I noticed a list of things that Obama has accomplished on the Internet and thought I would take a gander at it. It seems to me that people are heaping too many criticisms on our poor defenseless president. A key point that I noticed while reading this list is that the person counted the same actions several times by re-wording them to make them look like separate issues.

The list

"Saved the collapse of the American automotive industry by making GM restructure before bailing them out, and putting incentive money to help the industry"

He dumped trillions of tax payer dollars into the automotive industry, bought new private jets for all of the CEO's of big businesses, and even set up a cash for clunkers incentive which failed miserably. that was just a glimpse of what communism would be like. When the government runs things they go belly up. Another example is our failing social security system.

"Shifted the focus of the war from Iraq to Afghanistan, and putting the emphasis on reducing terrorism where it should have been all along"

He got us involved in five other wars with Muslim countries thus spreading our troops into more countries that we don't belong in, who by the way hate us.

"Relaxed Anti-American tensions throughout the world"

He ignored middle east chaos and failed to address the Libya crisis because he was too busy filling out a basketball betting chart.

"Signed order to close the prisoner “torture camp” at Guantanamo Bay"

On Jan 7, 2011, President Obama signed the 2011 Defense Authorization Bill which contains provisions preventing the transfer of Guantanamo prisoners to the mainland or to other foreign countries, and thus effectively stops the closure of the detention facility.

"Has made the environment a national priority, and a primary source for job creation"

Hired "former" communist Van Jones to head up the power shift convention who incessantly demanded redistribution of wealth to minorities.

"Won the Nobel Peace Prize"

It's not an accomplishment when you did absolutely nothing to deserve it.

"$789 billion economic stimulus plan"

Flushed 789 billion dollars down the toilet, they actually created a crisis situation in order to squeeze money out of the taxpayers and none of it has been accounted for. Guess where it all went............. China!!!!!!

"Appointment of first Latina to the Supreme Court"

Multiculturalism promotes division, and subservience of races. If a person is a citizen of the United States they should be considered as such and not a member of some other foreign country. The people should be focused on hiring the right person for the job rather than the right colored person for the job.

"Attractive tax write-offs for those who buy hybrid automobiles"

Studies have shown that hybrid vehicles are nearly the same as conventional cars, and in fact have a shorter life expectancy. The batteries in them which takes up a bulk of the trunk space last 50 to 100K miles before they have to be replaced, they are slower than conventional cars, and get the same amount of gas mileage as a conventional car.

"Authorized construction/opening of additional health centers to care for veterans"

Also introduced a brand of socialized medicine to the United States that will force hundreds of millions of Americans off their private programs who's employers will be enticed to drop the more expensive private programs they previously held.

"Beginning the process of reforming and restructuring the military 20 years after the Cold War to a more modern fighting force… this includes new procurement policies, increasing size of military, new technology and cyber units and operations, etc."

This is a false notion The Navy is continuing to downsize drastically and military personnel are being forced into separating from their branch of service.

“Cash for clunkers” program offers vouchers to trade in fuel inefficient, polluting old cars for new cars; stimulates auto sales"

Failed miserably, the money for this program ran out so quickly that people ended up waiting to get their share like commies in a bread line.

"If [my daughters] make a mistake I don't want them punished with a baby."
"If [my daughters] make a mistake I don't want them punished with a baby."

"Ended previous policy on torture; the US now has a no torture policy and is in compliance with the Geneva Convention standards"

Used Torture tactics to find and kill Bin Laden. Use it when it looks good.

"Federal support for stem-cell and new biomedical research."

Embryonic stem-cell research is an immoral process where doctors administer a sedative to an unborn fetus so it won't feel the pain they inflict on it while they conduct their experiments.

"Responded with compassion and leadership to the earthquake in Haiti"

Responded to the worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl at Fukushima power plant in Japan by advocating nuclear power and tripling taxpayer funds for loans on nuclear power plants in America.

"Immediate and efficient response to the floods in North Dakota and other natural disasters"

Ignored a massive oil spill in the gulf of Mexico, cast blame, made demands, cap and taxed, and did nothing to aid in the containment or clean up.

"Donated his $1.4 million Nobel Prize to nonprofits."

As he should have because he didn't deserve the award in the first place.

" Provided tax credits to first-time home buyers through the Worker, Home ownership, and Business Assistance Act of 2009 to revitalize the U.S. housing market."

The housing market continues to plummet.

"Increasing pay and benefits for military personnel"

Halted cost of living increases to government employees indefinitely.

"Cracked down on companies that deny sick pay, vacation and health insurance to workers by abusing the employee classification of independent contractor. Such companies also avoid paying Social Security, Medicare and unemployment insurance taxes for those workers."

Walmart, the largest employer in the nation continues to hold the bulk of their employees at a part time status in order to avoid supplying benefits to them thus causing their employees to use state funds in order to receive medical care, and other forms of welfare.

"Protected 300,000 education jobs, such as teachers, principals, librarians, and counselors through the Recovery Act that would have otherwise been lost."

Since March the number of unemployed persons in America has increased by 545,000

"Provided tax credit to workers thus cutting taxes for 95% of America's working families."

Told the wealthy that they need to pay their fair share despite the fact that the wealthiest 1% of Americans pay more in taxes than the bottom 95% According to data released by the IRS in 2007 it shows that the wealthiest 1% paid over 40% of the nations taxes.

"Removed restrictions on embryonic stem-cell research"

Embryonic stem-cell research is an immoral process where doctors administer a sedative to an unborn fetus so it won't feel the pain they inflict on it while they conduct their experiments in the womb.

Ended the previous stop-loss policy that kept soldiers in Iraq/Afghanistan longer than their enlistment date.

Stop losses are a fluid policy and can be instituted and dissolved at any time. The bottom line is, stop losses are not permanently gone, they simply aren't being used at this moment.

The public can meet with federal housing insurers to refinance (the new plan can be completed in one day) a mortgage if they are having trouble paying

This implements another socialist program into the United States economy. Studies have shown that when the government taxed the wealthy in order to help the poor it did little more than to cause a greater burden on the middle class.

"I am for doing good to the poor, but...I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. I observed...that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer." Benjamin Franklin

US financial and banking rescue plan

Another socialist program that ultimately takes money from the middle class, "You can't make a weak man strong by making a strong man weak" -Lincoln.

Visited more countries and met with more world leaders than any president in his first six months in office

Bowed in an overt manner of subservience to a Saudi prince.

Improved relations with Iran

The goal of the president of Iran is to bring about the return of the 12th Imam, which is an end of the world prophecy. he believes that he can make this happen by creating chaos and destruction around the world. Iran continues to build up nuclear weapons.

Drastically slowed down the recession

Put our country into the most debt it has ever seen. Increased national spending by leaps and bounds, continues to spend billions of dollars a day.


Socialized medicine does not work, this is why Canada and the UK are moving back towards a similar system that the U.S. Had.

Signed NDAA into law making it legal for the US Government to imprison US Citizens who are suspected of terrorism.

      Very good video. It seems that it is very dangerous to be a good person.

      I am not a huge Palin fan but I think it is obvious what they did to her. Check this out.

      Lately that seems to be the truth. Perhaps I'm wrong. It may have always been that way.

      You are right. They didn't defeat the press. The media are the ones who decide who wins the presidency in my opinion.

      I believed that McCain was competent and honest, and I feel that Palin was the right choice for VP, I just don't know if they would have been able to defeat the press. They are still ripping at Palin.

      Hubert, I think they had a pretty competent guy running against Obama but the media fell in love with him and got him elected instead. They trashed Palin by fabricating lie after lie, after lie, trumping up false charges against her, and making a mockery out of her family on all the late night shows. The liberal media killed our only chance of getting a somewhat decent shot at having a politician in the house that wasn't as crooked as a question mark.

      I figured it out before he was elected. Ihat's why I didn't vote for him. In retrospect, I'm not real sure the guy I voted for would have been any more effective. The two party system is great until it stops working for the country and only benefits the parties. Neither major political party looks for a candidate to lead the country anymore. They only look for puppets.

      @James you know it! I just hope the rest of America figures it out come election time.

      Thank you for this fantabulous piece of reporting. Everything you said is true. Obama is by far the worst president in American history—and that includes Jimmy Carter!!!!!!

      I love the quote from Abraham Lincoln. If only Lefties would read it and comprehend it. They don't.

      Great work!

      Very good page and well written!I didn't vote for him and I already knew that things are not what they seem.

      The USA is in for some big surprises with the upcoming famine and a lot worse than just going hungry is coming. This is what God has shown us at church through visions- and the visions have not stopped. It is time to focus on God for survival and be prepared and listening to God warning us to be ready. Stay prayed up- it is by the blood of the Lamb & our testimony that we will overcome this world!

      Thank you for the information.

      Oh, I don't think he would like me too much. My advise for him would be to pack up his stuff and go back to his Chicago crime sindicate.

      Sheri, a wise author once said; "the truth must be told again and again because error is constantly being preached". If we do not challenge them with these issues their voices will grow louder and their numbers will increase.

      You expect the author to relize that much of this mess has it's roots in the policies of 'Dear Leader' DUH-Bya and 'St. Ronnie'.

      Or didn't the pic give you hint that the author is another tool of the Kochs. . .

      Now, If you can list any achievements of the previous conservative leader in the white house. I really can't think of one achievement, can you? I need to know the standard set by the last President.
