Passed a healthcare bill: to be seen
Re-elected: not the first time a president was re-elected
Afghanistan: extended the drawdown timeline

Got anything else??
Wasn't he the first President in history that ran thru his entire first term without a budget?

I believe so, in spite of the Law requiring one.

He kept the printing press running 24/7 to do it. Why do you think we are so far in debt? Not exactly an accomplishment when you have to keep printing money and borrowing money for a country to function.

When the big inflation hit as a result, and it will, we will have the real depression.

If you think your money is not worth much now, just wait.

That feeble attempt is akin to saying...ehh...don't worry about immigration violators, they're really irrelevant.

Passing of the health care act, affords EVERYONE access to healthcare. But I agree, like you I think there should be a single payer.

The markets and companies have done better and better every QTR since '10.

Funny you speak about retards. Is self loathing is part of your normal character?

We've got plenty of guns...to keep in check morons and extremists who attempt to corrupt and destroy the Republic.
If Clinton had agreed to take Bin Laden into custody when he had the chances, Bush wouldn't have had to "kill him."

That graph is flawed.

The Bush tax cuts did not increase the debt; overspending did.

Government revenue increased by $785 billion from 2004 to 2007, the largest 4-year increase in history.
