but what has he done?

Check out this list of the ‘244 Accomplishments of President Obama in his First Term’ (so far) compiled by Robert P. Watson, Professor of American Studies, Lynn University – “Like all presidents, Barack Obama has made mistakes. But, as a presidential historian, I have been struck by claims being put forward by Obama’s many critics and the news media that he has accomplished little when, in fact, his presidency is easily one of the most active in history.”

    THIS PRESIDENT HAS ACCOMPLISHED MORE IN HIS TIME IN OFFICE THAN ANY OTHER IN OUR HISTORY. THE NAYSAYERS ARE THE ONES WHO BEAR WITNESS TO THEIR OWN POLITICAL,EXTREMELY SELFISH MOTIVES….AND IT SHOWS. I’M TIRED OF THE CRITICS…I’M TIRED OF THE TALKING HEADS AND PUNDITS WHO HAVE DONE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO BETTER THE CONDITIONS IN THIS COUNTRY. ALL THEY DO IS DRESS FOR THE CAMERAS…THEN SCATTER WHEN RESPONSIBILITY ENTERS THE ROOM! THEY DISGUST ME!

    This information should be bookmarked.
    Meanwhile, all the MSM can talk about is Palin and her bus tour! LOL!

      I know. It’s freakin annoying. Every station and talk show this morning was all about Palin. The media call her an attention seeker; which she is, but then they cover her every move like rabid dogs. POTUS was on an important European trip that dealt with the Economy, Mid-East Issues, Afghanistan, Our relationship with other countries.. etc and the only thing they covered was his “supposed gaffe when giving the Queen a toast.” (the gaffe was the band’s fault) They covered the royal wedding ad nauseam and are now doing the same for Palin. Then they come back and lament that POTUS hasn’t accmplished much. Frankly, it’s sickening.

    We should all send this to Sarah Palin twitter and ask her to read it an learn.

    I think if people will answer all her tweet lies with tweets of our own and we make it a trending topic the media will pay attention.

    That list takes my breath away! I couldn’t do that much in ten years!!! Not taking vacation days really does make a difference! Thirty days…..with that job? So much goes on beneath the radar. I’m reminded of what Michelle said when asked about a state dinner…it looked so smooth. She answered, “yes, but it’s like a swan….beautiful on top of the water, but paddling like mad beneath the water!”

    TODers,

    We have to realize that why the critics/haters are in such foam slobbering frenzy about PBO is because of fear. They FEAR this unique president of ours, because it is clear to them that if he where to complete two terms he will redefine how the world relates to the U.S. and he will do away with many of the old (and incorrect) preconceptions of Democratic presidents.

    So, you see, we all here can appreciate this list of 244 accomplishments and see it as only the tip of the iceberg that does not fully reflect the impact he is having globally (just look at the pictures of commoners and Royalty from this European trip). The right wingers (and even some on the left – Cornell West comes to mind) see this same information and it just fills them with fear.

    This is why we support this president. We may kid about his swagger, good looks and charm (ok we’re serious about the charm), but the real meat and potatoes on which we base our support is this list. He is a man of rational action. He stops, thinks, then act. His team is a strong well led team, of the best in their fields.
