Hard to tell all that when you listen to propaganda like fox news and others but do a little research, not hard to find ....Try and get that much from a Republican in there first two years hah, good luck
The thread asks for GOOD things he's done.
I can quickly pick out several of those that are BAD. And many others that are indeterminate, untried, or incomplete.
But, nice try.
Increased funding for national parks and forests by 10%
There is no #1 on that site. Every time you land on the homepage you get something different.
As for the NPS and NFS, they've both been desperately underfunded for years... so what's your point?
Land on that page much?
My point is big whoop. That's about a gnat's eyelash out of the trillions he is burying your children's children's children in. A little bit for the parks while he tries to lock up more state's land.
"Land on that page much?"
"That's about a gnat's eyelash out of the trillions he is burying your children's children's children in."
If you can point me to a pre-01/20/2009 post where you opposed the Bush tax cuts, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, or TARP, then I'll believe you actually care about the deficit and not just partisanship.
This thread is bound to be a short one!
Unless of course Obama's supporters pop in to insert needles in haystacks....
So what good things has Barack Obama done??
Well since you mentioned national forests. . .
Obama is also trying to make the biggest land grab for the federal government in history. A nice progressive thing to do. Lock it up so we'll have to depend on corn gas and hot air for fuel.
Wait...I'm trying to think of sum-thing...oh God...there must be sum-thing...Oh gosh...I can't think of anything...Surely?
Obama's accomplishments have been listed in these forums many times before.
I hear she found when she dug her garden that the soil was contaminated with heavy metals from the sludge based sh** ...er stuff the Clinton's used to fertilize the grounds with during their tenure.
I wonder how much it cost to remove the tainted earth and replace it with organic top soil so Michelle could have her Petite Trianon.
That's a myth.

I think Obama is a great father and family man and can serve as a good role model for young black males. Here in the South, many of them lack a positive male role model.

If it's okay to ask for hub recommendations, I'm asking. Who writes about the joy of little girls? Doesn't have to be all good but I really need some things that show some things about girls that are nicer than dealing with boys. Boys are all I'm used to and having a little girl around is quite a...

I have been listening to how the government has a billion dollars for getting people to sign up for the Affordable Healthcare Act. Would that money have been better spent training more doctors and building new hospitals? New Jersey has closed how many community hospitals in the last few...

The gist of the new Congressional Budget Office, (CBO), report on the effects of Obamacare on the U.S. economy is that it will cause a reduction in works hours equivalent to about 2 million jobs by 2017.Here is just one link from a Washington Post story: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/plu...
