For Puling Progressive Pukes Bashing Barry 'Bama

[Accordingly, on a closer and more careful review and evaluation of legislative accomplishments resulting from Obama's presidential leadership, my abiding commitment to political integrity and constructive self-criticism requires me to recite, objectively, those set of facts, that persuasively indicate that Obama has been more successful than I originally characterized in recent posts.
Admittedly, the legislative achievements during this past week's "lame-duck" session of Congress, has provided a more meaningful context within which to evaluate Obama's presidency.
For the record, during his first two years in office his achievements include:
  • $787 billion stimulus for the economy
  • 13-month extension of unemployment insurance
  • Rescue of the auto industry
  • Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform& Protection Act
  • Health-care reform
  • Extension of insurance for a million children under SCHIP
  • Repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"
  • Shepard-Byrd Hate Crimes Prevention Act
  • Ratification of the New START Nuclear Treaty
  • Funding of the First Responders Act ("9/11" Word Trade Center)
So, I congratulate you, Mr. President; and, especially salute and applaud the leadership of House Speaker, Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi.]
