Re: Romney or Obama?
I get annoyed when people say what did Obama did in 4 years? I already posted before what he did but I will copy/Paste what I said in the thread Wesohi made
Small list of the things he did in 4 years.
He Returned The Executive Branch To Fiscal Responsibility After the Bush Debacle
He Fostered Greater Transparency and Better Government, After the Excesses of the Bush Years
He Improved the Economy, Preventing a Bush Depression
-The Bush-led Great Recession was costing the economy nearly 800,000 jobs per month by the time President Obama took office. But by the end of his first year, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act created and sustained 2.1 million jobs and stimulated the economy by 3.5
- Oversaw the creation of more jobs in 2010 alone than Bush did in eight years.
- With Democrats, and almost no Republicans, implemented an auto industry rescue plan, and saved as many as 1 million jobs. Many are of the opinion that he saved the entire auto industry, and even the economy of the entire Midwest. This resulted in GM returning to its place as the top car company in the world. Romney, on the other hand, advocated for the entire industry to go belly-up.
Wall Street Reforms and Consumer Protection
- Fashioned rules so that banks can no longer use YOUR money to invest in high-risk financial instruments that work against their own customers' interests
He Ushered Through Many Changes That Enhanced Civil Rights and Anti-Discrimination
He Made Major Improvements in Foreign Relations and American Status Around the World
-Visited more countries and met with more world leaders than any previous president during his first six months in office
His Administration Treated Soldiers and Veterans with Respect That Was Missing Previously
He Refocused the Federal Government on Education
Reoriented Government to an Adult View on Science, Technology and Health Care
He Pushed Through Improvements in National Safety and Security
He Took Concrete Steps to Improve Our Environment and Address Our Energy Needs
Took Steps to Strengthen the Middle Class and Families, and to Fight Poverty
Signed an Executive Order pledging support for efforts to end the global problem of violence against women and girls.
Expanded trade agreements to include stricter labor and environmental agreements such as NAFTA.
Appointed the most diverse Cabinet in history, including more women than any other incoming president.
Also another interesting thing is Obama’s success rate in winning congressional votes on issues was an unprecedented 96.7% for his first year in office. Slightly better than President Lyndon Johnson’s success rate in 1965 was only 93% which is still quite high
I can talk about also the obstacles Republicans made for Obama He get ALOT done in one term even after they made there top goal to make him a one term President. Do I need to explain what filibuster is to people?
It's time for people to open up the newspaper the old fashion way and stop tuning into MSNBC and even more worse FOX they are all Biased like hell but if you had to pick go to MSNBC since they tell the truth/facts more often than FOX which is why FOX is under the entertainment category
