Of all Obama has actually done right ? I mean he has tried,and I myself will vote for him OR Ron Paul if they put him on the ballot.

Amen. Thanks to you and bash. Somehow most people do not keep count, and worse, they are unaware of any of these accomplishments. For the pubs it is just because they do not want to know this, denial, but also most Dems are ignorant of all the good that he has done.
