Can anyone list any of Obama's accomplishments?
Obama himself can only point to running his campaign for President as his qualification to be President.
He's black and has ridden the affirmative action horse throughout his education and career.
That's about it.
It has been the rich and varied experiences of Barack Obama's life - growing up in different places with people who had differing ideas - that have animated his political journey. Amid the partisanship and bickering of today's public debate, he still believes in the ability to unite people around a politics of purpose - a politics that puts solving the challenges of everyday Americans ahead of partisan calculation and political gain.
In the Illinois State Senate, this meant working with both Democrats and Republicans to help working families get ahead by creating programs like the state Earned Income Tax Credit, which in three years provided over $100 million in tax cuts to families across the state. He also pushed through an expansion of early childhood education, and after a number of inmates on death row were found innocent, Senator Obama worked with law enforcement officials to require the videotaping of interrogations and confessions in all capital cases.
In the U.S. Senate, he has focused on tackling the challenges of a globalized, 21st century world with fresh thinking and a politics that no longer settles for the lowest common denominator. His first law was passed with Republican Tom Coburn, a measure to rebuild trust in government by allowing every American to go online and see how and where every dime of their tax dollars is spent. He has also been the lead voice in championing ethics reform that would root out Jack Abramoff-style corruption in Congress.
As a member of the Veterans' Affairs Committee, Senator Obama has fought to help Illinois veterans get the disability pay they were promised, while working to prepare the VA for the return of the thousands of veterans who will need care after Iraq and Afghanistan. Recognizing the terrorist threat posed by weapons of mass destruction, he traveled to Russia with Republican Dick Lugar to begin a new generation of non-proliferation efforts designed to find and secure deadly weapons around the world. And knowing the threat we face to our economy and our security from America's addiction to oil, he's working to bring auto companies, unions, farmers, businesses and politicians of both parties together to promote the greater use of alternative fuels and higher fuel standards in our cars.
Did he author any of that?
Can you show where he actually is responsible for any of that other than perhaps voting?
Although actually voting rather than simply saying "present" may have been an accomplishment in his eyes.
He has no accomplishments of any significance.
Just propaganda from his campaign web site.
It's a lame and very short career Bio.
His own web site doesn't count.
I can tell you about one political accomplishment:
He voted against the Born Alive act. That's pretty significant. :tear: Maybe his web site isn't too proud of that one, leaving infants to die on dirty hospital laundry.
I posted a very extensive list of Senator Obama's accomplishments a few weeks ago in this forum. I did not realize the same questions would be regurgitated by the anti-Obama forces every few weeks. If I had I would have kept the link in my favorites.
Not that it would matter. The anti-Obama forces will poo-poo any such list regardless of how extensive or how well documented it is.
Sorry, but I've done enough hiring and firing over the years to be able to recognize a padded resume.
Thank you, Major B, for proving my point about the anti-Obama forces. :thumbs:
Aside from Obamas accomplishments and non-accomplishments, and his support of legalized murder, his own camp couldn't answer the question regarding his accomplishments. HAHAHA!
