Man that Watson guy's performance was pathetic. I was embarrassed for him.

These supporters didn't fare much better:


YouTube - Name one accomplishment by Obama

neither did these:


YouTube - Name an accomplishment by Obama, part II

Oh yeah, so it was Hannity asking the question. Get over it.

If he unfortunatly becomes president I know of one accomplishment he will have. Driving large corporations out of the USA. His tax policies are terrible. I wish Obama fans understood that.

Funny yes? Accurate? No.

To purport he's done nothing based on other people's ignorance doesn't make it true.

One place to look for a list is here.
Barack Obama | Change We Can Believe In |


You can also take a look at the list below for some legislation from the interesting to the mundane and petty.

...and before you dismiss the article as from a liberal source, research the bills yourself, the information is clearly out there to do so, I did a quick fact check to be sure.



Obama's Success:
S.AMDT.1041 to S.1082 To improve the safety and efficacy of genetic tests.
S.AMDT.3073 to H.R.1585 To provide for transparency and accountability in military and security contracting.

S.AMDT.923 to S.761 To expand the pipeline of individuals entering the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields to support United States innovation and competitiveness.
S.AMDT.924 to S.761 To establish summer term education programs.
S.AMDT.2519 to H.R.2638 To provide that one of the funds appropriated or otherwise made available by this Act may be used to enter into a contract in an amount greater than $5 million or to award a grant in excess of such amount unless the prospective contractor or grantee certifies in writing to the agency awarding the contract or grant that the contractor or grantee owes no past due Federal tax liability.
S.AMDT.2588 to H.R.976 To provide certain employment protections for family members who are caring for members of the Armed Forces recovering from illnesses and injuries incurred on active duty.

Senate Resolutions Passed:
Thats a heck of a list of accomplishments over the last how many years of public service? Must have been a lot of work to introduce the same bill over and over, and over. (bottom half)

The rest all have to do with socialistic programs, more regulations, or the favorite one, require lobbiest to disclose information. I can sleep better now knowing that lobbiest have to disclose information!

Wow, he surely has accomplished a lot compared to that McCain.... Not..

Thanks for confirming that I would be voting for the correct individual this year.. p.s. its not Obama

The assertion of this thread was that he accomplished nothing. The assertion of this thread wasn't that he accomplished things you don't like.

pghquest - you were never going to vote for Obama, don't be coy.

eral tax liability.
This alone is very encouraging to me.

But the work on Ethics Legislation is valuable indeed.

Barack Obama can honestly claim to have made a difference on a matter of life and death. (http://www.cnn.com/2007/POLITICS/11/12/obama.death.penalty.ap/ - broken link)Obama often cites his role in Illinois' death penalty debate as evidence that he can resolve thorny issues through compromise.
