    What exactly has Obama done in the nearly three years he's been president. Why would anyone call him a leader? All he did was:

    Save the auto industry
    Pass Health Care (unpopular because health care is bad)
    Stopped a depression
    stimulated by the economy to the tune of a couple of million jobs
    ended Don't ask Don't tell
    shot Bin Laden in the face
    expanded gun laws more than any other president in history
    sweeping change in patent laws
    got rid of Qaddafi without the loss of a single American life
    Saved Christmas for millions of Americans whose unemployment was about to be cut off
    moved tens of thousands of soldiers out of Iraq
    two female Supreme Court Justices
    Provided travel expenses to families of fallen soldiers to be on hand when the body arrives
    Reversed the policy of barring media coverage during the return of fallen soldiers
    Provided the Department of Veterans Affairs with more than $1.4 billion
    Require HC to disclose how much of the premium actually goes to patient care
    Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to look out for the interests of everyday Americans
    law requiring lenders to verify applicants' credit history, income, and employment status
    Cut prescription drug cost for medicare recipients by 50%
    Policies that created more private sector jobs in 2010 than during entire Bush years
    New START Treaty - nuclear arms reduction pact with Russia

    And he did the after inheriting two wars, a 10 trillion dollar deficit, an exhausted military, a trashed Justice Department, a deregulated Wall Street and a broken economy.

    At the same time, fighting a political party who only goal was to destroy his presidency, who wanted him brought down, even before he was sworn in. A party that voted time and again against their own proposals and policies and against the interests of their base, in an attempt to ruin the President of the United States. A party that insisted he's not "American". That he's a Manchurian Candidate. A conspiracy. A man who did everything right, except be born white.

    Do we really need to list Republican achievements during the six LOOOOONG years they held both houses, the presidency and had a majority in the Supreme Court? It's a very short list. So short I couldn't think of a single positive thing.

    Imagine what Obama could have done if Republicans could get past his skin color?

    Democrats controlling our borders through drug smuggling and gun running.

    The smugglers blues. The lure of easy money.

    It's a tad early for claims that anyone has 'saved our economy'. And, certainly no one person 'saved' it... just like no one person got us into it.

    Partisans lack intellect.
