Obama’s Accomplishments

Andrew Sullivan of TheDailyBeast.com discusses Obama’s accomplishments, a topic most people are not focusing on.

Obama has a rather impressive record of accomplishment. In only two short years, he’s headed off a full economic meltdown with the stimulus; saved the U.S. banking and automobile industries at a minimal cost to the taxpayer; imposed tough new regulations on the financial sector; ended the Iraq war; gotten rid of “don’t ask, don’t tell”; killed Osama bin Laden; and, oh yes, overhauled the profoundly dysfunctional U.S. health-care system. And he did all this while “fighting both a global depression and a brutal, extremist right-wing opposition.”
