Under his watch and via direct order, Bin Laden is killed and military operations ended in Iraq. The troops on the ground deserve the most credit, but Obama did make the gutsy call on Bin Laden.

That's all well and good forgotmypassword. But what has he done for us lately?

Funny how he found the time to do all that while also embarking on a world apology tour, golfing and non stop vacationing.

And speaking of the apology tour, I'm still looking for an Apology Tour t-shirt or any other memorabilia. Let me know if you have anything, I'll pay top dollar.


by That's funny! April 10, 2012 12:42 PM


You got this post right from Obama, eh Password?

Nice source for your post.

Here is a Zogby poll, Zogby being a Dem pollster, that shows how views on the US have plummeted in the Arab world.

Click Here

Of course your bulet point list misses the actual issues such as why are we supposedly popular in the world and why that matters.

We are supposedly more popular because we have a President who puts the needs of other countries ahead of ours.

More importantly, who cares if we are popular in the world? Much of the world lives under tyrants and dictatorships and I for one could care less how those people view us. If you care how Cuba, the Sudan or Iran views us you are sick in the head, end of story.

Now let's address your points one by one.

47 nations rise to Obama’s challenge at US nuke summit and agree to four years of non-proliferation efforts. ref

I am less worried about non proliferation amongst our friends than I am amongst our enemies. I know on the left it is cool to say Israel is as big of a threat with nukes as Iran is, but for those of us who can think we know this is nonsense. So I ask, how has the non proliferation gone with Iran, Syria and N. Korea who I think are about to launch a new nuke test?

Visited more countries and world leaders than any first year president. ref

Wow, talk about setting a low bar. So the President takes a lot of taxpayer funded trips to foreign countries and THAT is considered an accomplishment? Why not give him credit for learning how to tie his shows as well. He is President of the USA, not head of the UN. All his traveling shows is how little he is committed to dealing with the issues we have in this country.

G-20 Summit produced a $1.1 trillion deal to combat the global financial crisis. ref
Launched an international Add Value to Agriculture initiative (AVTA). ref
Created a rapid response fund for emerging democracies. ref
Bolstered the military’s ability to speak different languages. ref

Who cares about this crap. This is so minor, so insignificant that to raise these issues as accomplishments is pathetic. He also CUT ALL the funding to the freedom fighters in Iran prior to the Green Revoution there and he cut most of the funding to Radio Free Iran.

West Hem: Returned the rights of Americans to visit and assist their families in Cuba. ref , ref , ref

Made it easier for the thug in Cuba to survive thanks to an influx of cash from the US. Good work.

Middle East: Appointed envoys to the Middle East and AFPAK affirming the power of American diplomacy. ref

Give me a freaking break!!! He appointed people. That's it? That is an accomplishment?

Middle East: Renewed loan guarantees for Israel. ref

That happened in Congress a-hole. The President simpy signs what is put in front of him, something that has happened for decades. This is nothing new from Obama but a continuation of decades of existing policy.

Middle East: Pledged $400 million in aid to Gaza civillians. ref

Money right to Hamas who runs Gaza. They are terrorists, remember? He wrote a big check to those who want to kil Americans. Well done.

Middle East: Pressured Israel to end Gaza blockade. ref

The blockade remains in place and most people not on the left would agree that Gaza is a terrorist enclave run by terrorists. Even Obama's State Dept. agrees with that proposition.

Middle East: Refused to give Israel a “green light” to strike Iran, augmenting Mid-East stability. ref

Meaningless nonsense. Israel will attack when she is ready. Nothing Obama says wil make a difference.

Middle East: Iran Sanctions Act. ref

Obama did everything he could NOT to sign it and he proposed much weaker sanctions than was acutally passed. He signed the sanctions under serious pressure from Congress. Led by the GOP and brave Dems like Jim Webb, Brad Shermand and Howard Berman the sanctions were strengthened in Congress from what Obama proposed and sent to him to sign. The actual sanctions were written in Congress, he just signed it.

Asia: Renewed import restrictions under Burmese Freedom and Democracy Act of 2003. ref

So he renewed the act that was originally passed by Bush. All he did was renew existing poicy that nobody disgrees with and that gets him a gold star?

Aus: Nuclear arms agreements with Australia (5/5/2010). ref

Thank God for this one. Those rogue Aussies used to keep me up at night but now, well now I can sleep safely knowing that Crocodile Dundee won't be nuking us.

Now let's look at some of the failures on the part of the admin.

#1. Promised to focus on improving the situation in Afghanistan. Fail!
#2. Watches as Assad slaughters his people in the streets, sending tanks into residential neighborhoods to fire openly at civilians. Sec State Clinton actually called Assad a reformer who we could work with. Did that turn out to be an accomplishment too?
#3. Rejected Keystone pipeline forcing Canada to come to terms with China to sell them their oil.
#4. Did nothing to support the Iranians during the Green Revolution and went so far as to sign off on the Iranian elections that everybody in the world knows was rigged.
#5. F#$#ed our allies in the Czech Republic and Poland by cow towing to the Russians who are led by a former KGB thug who somehow managed to become President for life. Continues to play nice with Russia even after the most recent elections where Putin had his thugs all over the country beating the crap out of people all poling stations.
#6. There have been more terrorist attacks or attempts on the homeland in the three years of Obama versus 8 years of Bush.
#7. He keeps pissing off our allies (Canada, Britain, Israel) in favor of our enemies.

The list of failures is endess and this is all I have time for now.
by JackStraw April 10, 2012 12:50 PM


Forgot,

I don't think he should do anything. Just like he did on sum of his "accomplishments" that you listed.

I just figured since you wre spit balling, so would I.


by YATI April 10, 2012 1:05 PM


Jack..
1. of course i copied and pasted, maybe you didn't understand the context of this post.

2. Then you promptly mentioned that The US is unfavorable in the eyes of the arab world...and posted a link that included the following statement.....


In most countries surveyed, favorable attitudes toward the United States dropped to levels lower than they were during the last year of the Bush administration. The killing of Osama bin Laden also worsened attitudes toward the United States.


3. You have no reason to call me an asshole, i would expect that from the cisco baby

4. I made a point on the previous thread in response to cisco's request, that it is impossible to not "dissect and tear apart" the accomplished of any president ever!!

Weather you agree with them or not, these are accomplishments the president can "run on"

I would appreciate an apology

That's all a bunch or ref ref ref.

Password,

Good luck trying to get an apology out of Jack the Hack. He's probably online shopping for Reagan pajamas and can't be bothered.
by The Tolerant Educator April 10, 2012 1:20 PM


forgot: You've made your point.

And you knew from the outset the usual suspects would kick, scream and spin at the info you provided.

Nothing you could produce would convince or satisfy them.

Your work here is finished. Well played.

If Iran nukes up, and it turns out we sat by and let it happen?

It'd outweigh anything good he's ever done.

Or ever will do.

Wow.. So I guess he is the only President to ever accomplish anything?

I don't know. For three plus years the list looks a little short. My guess is you could go back and list everything done by any other President over three years and it would be at least this long.

Most of it looks pretty mundane.

But then again, who knows. He is the messiah.
by ConservativeMe April 10, 2012 4:23 PM


No, he isn't the messiah, that is more bullshyt you guys typically spew to act like those who support him are not also critical of him. Far more critical than the right was during the Bush years.

He isn't the only President to ever accomplish something, and mundane is a fair description, so again, i point out, this post is a response to the following;

I apologize for calling you an a-hole. You are just naive and foolish to list these things as accomplisments. You may as well compliment Obama on the sun coming up every morning.

Interesting how in that entire response you chose one word to focus on while ignoring all the substantive responses. Way to focus on the big picture.

Stop them, at all costs.

If that means war now, that's better than war later when Hezbollah has nukes.

Next time you want to challenge someone make sure you know your opponent. I very seldom come up with anything without the facts to back them up. So the next time you want to play in the big boy arena step up your game a little bit more. Excuse me. A lot more. Until then back to the kiddie sandbox where you should be more comfortable. About your mental speed and capability

the world,various countries are mocking the
usa more than ever.they know we have a weak,pandering president as evidenced by
threats,barbs from iran,n.korea,cuba,
venezuela ie;add to this,brazil being
promised to be a big supplier of oil
vs buying from canada and i see world dominance of, vs by the usa.

furthermore,the world doesn't get a vote here,except for the illegals that has flooded our country and receives welfare
from our benevolent potus;so are the
american citizens more interested in
your pasted worldy accomplishments or
high gas prices,high unemployment,
increasing debt,low morale and being
the laughing stock of the world;i think not.
