Default Obama's First 6 Months' Accomplishments

Obama's First Six Months' Accomplishments

1. Offended the Queen of England .

2. Bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia .

3. Praised the Marxist Daniel Ortega.

4. Kissed Socialist Hugo Chavez on the cheek.

5. Endorsed the Socialist Evo Morales of Bolivia
.
6. Sided with Hugo Chavez and Communist Fidel Castro against Honduras .

7. Announced we would meet with Iranians with no pre-conditions while they're building their nuclear weapons.

8. Gave away billions to AIG also without pre-conditions.

9. Expanded the bailouts.

10. Insulted everyone who has ever loved a Special Olympian.

11. Doubled our national debt.

12. Announced the termination of our new missile defense system the day after North Korea launched an ICBM.

13. Released information on U.S. Intelligence gathering despite urgings of his own CIA director and the prior four CIA directors.

14. Accepted without comment that five of his cabinet members cheated on their taxes and two other nominees withdrew after they couldn't take the heat.

15. Appointed a Homeland Security Chief who identified military veterans and abortion opponents as "dangers to the nation."

16. Ordered that the word "terrorism" no longer be used and instead refers to such acts as "man made disasters."

17. Circled the globe to publicly apologize for America 's world leadership

18. Told the Mexican president that the violence in their country was because of us.

19. Politicized the census by moving it into the White House from the Department of Commerce.

20. Appointed as Attorney General the man who orchestrated the forced removal and expulsion to Cuba of a 9-year-old whose mother died trying to bring him to freedom in the United States.

21. Salutes as heroes three Navy SEALS who took down three terrorists who threatened one American life and the next day announces members of the Bush administration may stand trial for "torturing" three 9/11 terrorists by pouring water up their noses.

22. Low altitude photo shoot of Air Force One over New York City that frightened thousands of New Yorkers.

23. Sent his National Defense Advisor to Europe to assure them that the US will no longer treat Israel in a special manner and they might be on their own with the Muslims.

24. Praised Jimmy Carter's trip to Gaza where he sided with terrorist Hamas against Israel.

25. Passed a huge energy tax in the House that will make American industry even less competitive while costing homeowners thousands per year.

26. Announced nationalized health care "reform" that will strip seniors of their Medicare, cut pay of physicians, increase taxes yet another $1 trillion, and put everyone on rationed care with government bureaucrats deciding who gets care and who doesn't.

Bloomberg: Daschle says, "Health care reform will not be pain free. Seniors should be more accepting of the conditions that come with age instead of treating them," while former Colorado Governor Dick Lamm says seniors have "a duty to die."

If this does not sufficiently raise your ire, just remember that the President, Senators and Congressmen have their own special gold plated health care plan which is guaranteed the remainder of their lives and they are not subject to this new law if they pass it.

Please use the power of the Internet to get this message out. Talk it up at the grassroots level. We have an election coming up in one year and four months where we can reverse the dangerous direction of the Obama administration and its allies.

2. Showed respect to the king of S.A., bowing is a sign of respect in some places, not a sign of worship.
3. You got me there.
4. Kissed Socialist Hugo Chavez on the cheek. (a common greeting in several countries, learn about CULTURE)
5. You got me there.
6. Who cares? What has Honduras done for you lately?
7. And? We aren't world cowboys, and we need to take a better stance than "our way or the highway" when it comes to dealing with other countries.
Didn't your parents ever teach you to talk things out?
8. You got me there.
9. You got me there.
10. ???? Please explain
11. You got me there.
12. Source?
13. Because the CIA did Bush so well right?
The same CIA who told him they were positive Iraq had WMD?
14. Didn't the ones who did pay up?
15. Source?
16. Who cares? He can call it whatever he wants.
17. Circled the globe to publicly apologize for America 's world leadership (And THANK GOD he did so, sometimes you need to apologize, we haven't done everything right and it takes a big man to admit it)
18. Told the Mexican president that the violence in their country was because of us. (isn't it? Who is letting them bring thousands of pounds of drugs into the US for profit? Mexico certainly isn't, we are)
19. Who cares?
20. and? 9 years old or not, an alien is an alien no?
21. Source?
22. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
23. THANK GOD, who cares? IMO we should take no part in religious wars.
24. Praised Jimmy Carter's trip to Gaza where he sided with terrorist Hamas against Israel. (who cares? Unless you're anti muslim, or very pro jew?)
25. What would you prefer he tax? If not energy....
26. WE NEED HEALTHCARE, everybody else on the planet gets it,
and their economy are doing ok, they are working, living, etc... in a LOT of cases they are living longer, healthier lives than us, what don't you get?

Don't say you don't wanna pay for somebody else.
What about the guy who pays taxes for schools and has no kids?
Or, the guy who doesn't own a car and pays road taxes, etc...
You want a society where other people pay for things you use,
but your greed is stopping you from being willing to pay for others?
I don't understand.
Why can every other country in the industrial world accomplish this but government propaganda fueled by the bulging pockets of those who profit from health care in this country have convinced you its a bad idea.
The United States is the only country in the world where people go bankrupt over healthcare,
and thousands die each year from having no insurance.
There, fixed

You gotta be kidding me. You actually condone most of his actions? Our President is pro-big government, pro-socialism, and that makes him anti-American.

He is directly insulting our Allies, and you tell me to learn about culture while supporting the fact that he insulted the Queen of England?! Just like the press, you're painting it one way while twisting it the other way just to make the guy look good.

I'm with atomdanger on a lot of this.

Note to atom: Next time if you respond to a list like this, can you leave all of the original accomplishments etc. in with your responses. It makes it easier to see how your opinion reflects each of them.

The list seems like it was written from a bitter person perspective. I endured 8 years of President Bush and his policies. The shoe is on the other foot. Suck it up and deal with it like I had to.

Just curious. What specific policies did you feel you had to "endure"?

First three off the top of my head.

1. Iraq war policy
2. The Patriot Act.
3. Policy of torture.

And by endure, I don't mean that I personally was tortured or myself forced to go to war. His policies created a poor world view of the United States as well as contributing to our current financial mess.

Again, I wasn't a fan of Clinton and liked Bush at first, but he quickly lost my favor.

He did provide some much needed comic relief whenever I listened to him speak, so he gets props for that. He and Biden together could perform as a great comedy team.

I wish Obama would concentrate on Afghanistan as he promised during the campaign. Our generals have asked for more troops and he has not responded. He did not speak to his commanding general for over 70 days. Please watch this brief YouTube clip about his promises on Afghanistan during the campaign and compare them to the reality of his performance since he took office. In my opinion, his entire position on Afghanistan during the campaign was to paint Iraq as a "bad" war and Afghanistan as a "good" war; in large part, because at that time, the Iraq War was unpopular and the insurgency was highly active at that time. Bush stuck it out and Iraq was stabilized (for the time being). Now that Obama is in office and has the power to enact all the promises he made during the campaign, he is sitting on his hands. Of course, the media will not do their job and show his past words and confront him about it.

Of course you are. You and millions of other American have bought into the media hype that Obama is the Lord and Savoir of the United States and can do virtually no wrong. Tell me, what has he accomplished? The guy is nothing but press clippings.

Of course they won't, he is their poster boy, elected by the hype they created. Because he isn't living up to the hype, they will do their best to paint a pretty picture and still make his supporters believe he is God.

I agree, but I am hopeful that he "jumped the shark" with the Nobel Prize win.

I hope Obama is a one-term president and that he gets very little of his agenda passed. I think his opposition needs to concentrate on the big issues: the bad economy with high unemployment, record spending, the inevitable high taxes, nuclear Iran. Focusing on things like the Queen of England/iPod incident or the photo-op Air Force One flight (although legitimate criticisms) looks petty to the swing voters.
