Stopera, you’re awesome.
Obama’s presidency has been underwhelming, both in terms of his ability to get things done (e.g. the Gulf oil spill) and the fact that on quite a few serious issues he’s become even more right-wing than his predecessor (e.g. pot, unconstitutional and immoral war on terror practices). That doesn’t change the fact that he deserves credit where credit is due, and he very rarely gets that credit.
Obama deserves full credit for killing Osama. Bush called off the hunt for bin Laden in 2006; Obama told the CIA to make finding bin Laden a top priority as soon as he entered office. Credit for toppling Gaddafi should actually go to the Libyan people, but Obama deserves credit for giving them enough support to topple a murderous dictator without a single the death of any US troops. He’s been fairly on the ball when it comes to natural disasters, while Bush couldn’t even be bothered to cut his vacation a day short respond to Katrina. This horrendous economy? Not a depression. It could have been, if it hadn’t been handled correctly.
1st. He did not kill Osama he had crap to do with it, if anyone is to e thanked for that it’s bush (and I’m no bush lover it’s the truth)
2nd. I will give him credit on the G man and the hurricane.
3rd. Prevented the 2nd great depression? Apparently someone does not know the state of our country/economy.
Lastly, he is awesome for bringing donuts … As long as there is a raspberry filled one for me.
I’m sorry, but he did not topple Gaddaffi. Although he may have sent troops to support the rebels, it was mainly the Libyan people. When the Green Revolution happened in Iran, tons of people were saying that Iranian people were inspired by seeing Obama elected president they got inspired, and it’s because of Obama that the movement happened. Not true. Please let the credit go to the people of the country who started the movement.
Sigh. I sometimes long for the days before the Internet, when my fellow American wasn’t a biased, uniformed, reactionary plebe. Evidently the fanboi neo-democrat that spewed this rubbish hasn’t noticed that we are in a double dip recession, the President just sent troops to Africa (not counting those already in two OTHER war zones), we had almost nothing to do with Libya , and the state Governors managed the hurricane, and the fires, and the floods, women’s and worker’s rights are under constant attack, and this administration has deported more people than just about any other in history. All in all, the only “Presidential” thing on this list is the order to kill Osama. Everything else has nothing to do with the President. Matt, you are either a closet tea bagger or a hipster douche. I can’t figure out which.
