What has Barack Obama accomplished in his first year as President?
I am not asking this to be sarcastic or anything, I just need a list of the policies and bills and other things Barack Obama has passed in his first year as President. I am writing a paper. I am a sophomore in high school and have not kept up to date with what is going on in politics, though I should be. If you can please tell me your perspective on how you think the President has done in his first year. Thanks:)

He has convinced the entire world that he hates the USA. He even went to their countries to make sure they understood.

He has increased the national debt by 3 trillion dollars, he actually did that in his first three months. On a more positive note he is campaigning for his liberal sidekicks and his support has been the kiss of death for them allowing more competent candidates to be elected. Keep up the good work Barry!!

He paid off his Union puppet masters. He supplied the ACORN thugs with Obama's Stash cash in exchange for illegal votes. He made himself and the USA look like morons bowing to foreign kings. He proved Clinton is not the most corrupt s*****g President we've ever had. He lied about being open and honest.

He passed (with help) the Lily Ledbetter Act. The Lily Ledbetter Act is one of the reasons I voted against Senator McCain.

Caused a lot of racial division with his racist ass. Spent more money than all the other presidents put together with nothing but debt to show for it. Lied about a million times. That's about it.

The idiot has accomplished nothing good in his first year as president. His Hope and Change turned out to be Hoax and Chains.

He's managed to tick off pretty much the entire country and a good part of our Allies, for one, and set racial relations back 40 years in the process.
Answered By: Outlawcajun - 1/24/2010
can't we all just get along? i mean, Obama is an OK guy, but as a president he pretty much sucks, in fact, i think we should elect one of those chess playing robots to do the job, it couldn't be any worse right?
