If you're one of those folks who thinks President Obama is a "disappointment," you haven't been paying attention the last few years. And those of you who try to draw comparisons with the Bush Administration should put away the hallucinogens and have your memory checked. If you were in a coma for the eight Bush Years, I apologize and forgive you. But please join the real world. So far, this president has done most of what he said he would do if elected; imagine what he could have done by now if progressives had supported him and not given him a Congress that doesn't look at him as if he's the demon seed.
Aunk: This is my contribution to this very comprehensive article. Not everyone has the time to read the LONG list of accomplishments of our President and his FORWARD Moving Dems. but everyone has 8 minutes to watch this video that gives you the bottom line facts.
Lets Go To The Video Tape
What a difference from the days of Bush and the Forty Thieves. Makes one proud to be and American Again. FORWARD!
Not only is he NOT a "disappointment," he's pretty much the opposite. And no, I don't just say that because he took out Osama bin Laden, helped Libya determine their own destiny for the first time in a while, and because he seems able to handle international incidents without starting a new war. The guy does nearly everything we elect a president to do, and he doesn't brag about it constantly.
Is he perfect? No, he's human. Does he deserve some criticism? I suppose, but I must admit I haven't seen any complaints that were of based on anything having to do with the real world. One I can't forgive him for is pulling Janet Napolitano out of Arizona. But the thing is, on balance, he's mostly stellar. Besides, criticism about certain specific problems is one thing; taking on an overall "Obama sucks" meme not only has the potential to put Willard Romney into power, it's also a lie. Just because you wanted a president who would give you a glitter-farting unicorn and didn't quite get that doesn't mean he's not doing well at the job we hired him for.
What follows is a PARTIAL list of Obama's accomplishments so far. Unlike many such lists, there is a link to a citation supporting every single one.

ACTION ITEM: Bottom Line this is not an election year to sit on the sidelines, we need everybody in. The President and the Nation are moving FORWARD the Republicans want to more BACKWARD. Link to these facts, put them in your social network, your church, your Gym, Facebook and twit it make sure every voter you know reads the long list or sees the short video. The best antidote to misinformation and disinformation are facts, make sure your folks have them.
