Tick Tock!
Really cannot see how ANYONE no matter what party you support can say that Obama's policies have been a failure, although i did hear the exact same accusations that his policies have failed even before his inauguration..... so no change there........ Obama had failed before he had even sat in the oval office as far as the right were concerned.
Our President has now been more succesful in actually accomplishing things in his first three years than the Republicans did in 8 years with Bush.... how that is failed policies is utterly stupid.
No wonder the real heavy weights in the GOP are keeping away from running in Nov. because they know they are on a loser and are waiting for 2016.

Aaaand it's 206 days. Gas prices still skyrocketing, unemployment still over 8%, with no end in sight and more importantly no plan from the lame duck. Tick Tock Oblama.

Well I guess I am anyone

I want you to name two things Obama has accomplished for the country in the last three years that has benefited America in its entirety.

I haven't even asked for three, because I want to make it that much
easier for you

#1...We`re no longer losing 750,000 jobs a month like we were in Bush`s last few months.

#2....Put an end to the silly but deadly and expensive Iraq adventure.

#3....Found and killed Bin Laden in 2 years when the village idiot couldn`t do it in 7.

Now isn't that a good way to look at it as well? LMAO!!

Not sure why but it seems that for many on the right........ FAILURE gets huge rewards and success is frowned on.
When Bush sent the Country spiraling into the abyss, the CEO's and directors etc of the big banks, insurance companies and huge financial houses were given millions in bonuses for failure while their employees got pink slips.
When the Washington mutual bank, for example, collapsed the CEO, who had only been CEO for 18 days got a $40,000,000 bonus.... for failing.
The only reason that our President hasn't done more to improve jobs or the economy and we have been downgraded by S&P is because of obstruction in congress in a huge effort to bring America down during President Obama's administration so that they can get back into office.... a "screwww you America" to get back into the Whitehouse............ DISGUSTING!
If America rewards people for doing a great job then President Obama will have another 4 years in the Whitehouse.... If we want to reward people for FAILURE then the Republican party will win the election in November.

You have negated to give Bush the credit he deserves in Obama's success' you mention.

I said: benefited America in it's ENTIRITY.
See, I didn't vote for the Iraq War.
I'm only paying for it.

The withdrawal from Iraq was already determined under the Bush
administration. I'm sure intelligence going back to the Bush administration
also contributed to the kill of Bin Laden.

The government spent $79.3 billion assisting General Motors and Chrysler, and the first aid was approved by the
Bush administration as part of TARP. Obama only continued it.
Sure, it saved companies and some jobs in the process.

But, your #1 #2, #3 is no feather in anyone's individual cap, let alone
Obama's.

We all know Government IS the number one employer, but I'm not fond of public union jobs Obama may have saved/kept, using my tax payer dollars.

Don't like those teachers, or firefighters, or police in your community, huh? I guess you'd prefer 50 kids in a classroom, neighborhoods burning to the ground, and criminals roaming your streets. Those "first responders" pulling people from the wreckage of the tornadoes are probably union employees some of whom have jobs today because of the stimulus bill.

Thank you President Obama, thanks for a kinder, gentler world.
You think a guy who has people assassinated including children and American citizens without charge or trial is kind and gentle? Sick ...

OK.............
(1) Pulling our troops out of Iraq.
(2) Ignoring Pakistan and going in and killing Bin Laden and top terrorists... wherever they are.
(3) Pulling America out of the deepest recession probably in history.
(4) The affordable health care act..... finally giving health choices to people with pre conditions and young Americans being able to stay on parents health plans as they try to move forward.
(5) NOT committing our troops in foreign wars and making other Countries step up to the plate.
(6) Saving the American Auto Industry.
(7) Making banks liable for the foreclosures on their books.
(8) Signed an executive order that requires that appointees sign forms saying that they were not hired because of political affiliations or contributions. This is far from an unbeatable measure, but is an important early step towards cleaning up governmental hiring policies. It is easier to prove someone lied when their signature is right next to the statement in question.
(9) Authorized construction/opening of additional health centers to care for veterans
(10) Provided better body armor to our troops
(11) Ended previous practice of forbidding Medicare from negotiating with drug manufacturers for cheaper drugs; the federal government is now realizing hundreds of millions in savings
(12) Enabled the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act that has created 2.1 million jobs (as of 12/31/09
(13) Improved conditions at Walter Reed Military Hospital and other military hospitals
(14) Increased infrastructure spending (roads, bridges, power plants…) after years of neglect
(15) Donated his $1.4 million Nobel Prize to nonprofit organizations
(16) Limited salaries of senior White House aides; cut to $100,000
(17) Placed limits on lobbyists' access to the White House
There are many more ... but i think you get the idea now that even though President Obama does not run around blowing his own trumpet he is doing a great job in getting America back on its feet.......
