OK, What Has He Done?

What's our President accomplished thus far?

Those of you, who would vote for a donkey as long as it was a Democrat, may find this interesting. I have a question for the Liberal base that I can't answer.

What has our President accomplished in his 3+ years in office? By accomplished, I mean what has he done that has had a positive change on our situation as citizens of the USA? It should be easy to answer for all you out there.

What has he done?

I'll give you some clues as you search for answers:

1. Has he improved the economy?

2. Has he lowered unemployment below 8 percent?

3. Has he lowered our deficit?

4. Has he strengthened our military?

5. Has he delivered a budget to Congress?

6. Has he lowered the poverty rate?

7. Has he lowered the number of people on food stamps?

8. Has he lessened class envy?

9. Did he land the Olympics in Chicago?

10. Has he made us less dependent on foreign countries for our fuel sources?

Seriously help me.

I, unlike many Conservatives, am proud that I have voted for people that were not from my party. This should be a slam dunk for you Ls.

What has our President accomplished in these 3+ years?

If you can't come up with some good ones, and still vote for him, what does that mean?

I know the answer but do you?

Getting national health care passed doesn't count because we all know what it really is.

And anyway, Mitt did it first.

Good luck

If thousands of PhDs and MBAs can't agree on the best path for the country, what can an armchair quarterback Patch poster provide? What does he want us to do, vote or something? Like it will make a difference?

It doesn't matter if PhD's or MBA's can agree on anything. They aren't responsible for providing direction and leadership for this country. By the same token, we the people are responsible for picking the leaders to take us in the right direction. We're an amazing country in that we can correct our errors in voting by voting again. However for those who decide not to vote, they forfiet the right to boast or complain about the leadership of our country. If you don't have a piece in the game don't worry about the results. On the other hand, if you do, if you voted then get involved. Tell people what you think. Volunteer for your candidate. But if you sit on the sidelines in this coming election and your taxes go up or your freedoms to make decisions affecting your life continue to disappear, Shame on You.

The average American can't find Iraq on a map and you expect him to decide vote for someone to make decisions on foreign policy, corporate taxes, domestic spending, etc? "we the people are responsible for picking the leaders to take us in the right direction." What is "the right direction"? "However for those who decide not to vote, they forfiet the right to boast or complain about the leadership of our country." "Forfiet (sic) the right"? This is 100% wrong. A person who decides not to vote has the right to shoot his mouth off as much as anyone else (who votes). "We're an amazing country in that we can correct our errors in voting by voting again. " What's so amazing? Most countries elect their leader via voting. What exactly is an "error"? If it makes you feel better, go ahead and research your vote for ten minutes, two hours, 30 hours, or whatever. Then go ahead and cast your one measly vote.

Like I said, what has he done for our country? Has anything from the above list ( and I commend you for doing that painful research) that has helped our country. Net net are we better off for our Obama experience or worse? Do we have a budget? I do but shouldn't our government? What's the unemployment rate? What's our deficit? If you're happy with where we are and where we're being led BHO is your man and the direction you want for your country. Scarey!
