Obama’s Only Real Accomplishment
How do you expect Democrats to take a blogger seriously who calls our president "Barry Hussein" half way through the article. If that isn't a major tip off that the guy is not writing a fair opinion based article I don't know what is. I expected better from you, Roy........well, I still have hope that you can do better.

Daniel Greenfield isn't Canadian, he is based in New York City. In any case CFP is on par with World Nuts Daily when it comes to credibility....that's not sayin' much for them.

Now, if I saw a left-wing or nonpartisan publication criticizing him, I'd take it more seriously.
Yup, when the author refers to our president as "Barry Hussein" in the second paragraph, why read any further?

You know when it's a right wing opinion piece? They use his full name to remind and scare the lily white Christian right wingers that he has a "Muslim" middle name in Hussien in the first paragraph.

I have asked over and over for a list of major accomplishments of Obama in his first year and get no responses.

So, Obama followers, let's have a list of major accomplishments of Obama then.

With a stacked deck, all the funny money, complete control of congress and an open checkbook it should not be hard to create a huge list right?

Obama’s Only Real Accomplishment
Before reading the link, first thing to pop into my head on Obama's only real accomplishment if you can call it that is... running his mouth.

But both are still leaps above the credibilty of NY Times the past couple of years.

Can anyone deny that this is a true statement (from the CFP linked article) and actually back up any claim that it is untrue?

"Obama’s only real accomplishment is that he took hundreds of billions of dollars in taxpayer money, and directed them to his donors on Wall Street, in the unions and the insurance industry."

I don't prove negatives, why don't you prove it true. Oh I know why because you can't.

I will call it as it is. Not because I am a progressive. I will call it trash because that is what it is. If the BLOGGER wants to be taken seriously, he should be more professional. Until then, I will not waste a single second on his TRASH.

Happy New Years.
Of course you reacted with equal indignation when in the past, articles referred to President Bush as "Dubya"?

Follow the money! Who the heck can?

Barack Obama has yet to learn the meaning of "Conflict of Interest"!
