    I challenge you to come up with 3 of his policies that you liked or agreed with. Can you do it?

    Oh, and ordering the raid on Osama cannot be one of them. Anything else will do.

    Let's face it: if you can't answer this question, then you do not have an informed opinion about Obama. It's as simple as that.

    To be fair, I will give three policies of Obama I did NOT like:

    Extending the Bush tax cuts
    Pulling out of Iraq too early
    Not imposing tougher rules on lobbyists

    I'll give him credit for being able to bamboozle a lot of people into voting for him to make him the puppet in Chief.

    I don't think he has done anything remotely positive for this country. Sorry.

    I gave him credit for doing the sensible thing and approving the termination of Osama Bin Laden.

    Kept Guantanamo bay open, extended tax cuts, continues the counterterrorism efforts in place when he came into office. (though they publicly state that have halted enhanced interrogation, there's no way to ever know for sure)

    I can agree with his idea, though not execution of dealing with credit cards.

    I think that the idea of helping those hit by the economy to keep their homes is well intentioned, but think that it's unrealistic in most cases and will cause problems down the line.

    I can't think of a third.

    Well, thank God he didn't sign that awful NDAA into Law. Oh wait, he did. So no, i will not give him credit for anything.
