What has Obama done so far as president?

In my U.S. history class we were going over that today. My teacher was saying things like "He has done nothing but waste billions of dollars" and what not. Is that true? What else has he done?

The Dow just had its best 3rd quarter since 1939. Factory orders are up. Housing starts are up. Interest rates are down. The Conference Board Index of Leading Economic Indicators has gone up the past 5 months. I got a job.

He has nothing positive, only negative. He has given the public and business world nothing but uncertainty and doubt.

He has failed on every promise he made. That's what he has done. Thank goodness I didn't vote for him.

Your teacher's pretty much right, except Obama has wasted trillions of dollars, not billions. He's much more of a loser than your teacher described.

He's indebted generations of Americans for nothing more than political cronyism. Listen to your teacher, sounds like you have a wise one.

wow, you people are so negative it makes me want to cry. He hasn't even been president for a year. He inherited two wars, one that was completely abandoned for years, he inherited a lot of debt due to those two wars. He also has inherited a completely split country. We are the United States of America, not the... More
