    Has even one of Obama’s supporters ever actually defended his policies?
    All I ever see from them is silly insults and attacks on straw-men. Every response is blame Bush, Romney, racism, Nixon, the Tea party, giant asteroids or Leprechauns.
    Of course, it is hard to defend the indefensible, so I suppose they don’t have much choice.

    Here’s some successful Obama admin policies:

    Passed the Stimulus, 2009. Halted the then-accelerating slide into full Depression. Private sector has continued net job creation gain since then, creating nearly 3.7 million new private-sector jobs.

    Ended the war in Iraq.

    Killed Osama bin Laden.

    Turned Around U.S. Auto Industry.

    Recapitalized banks. Got banks back on their feet at essentially zero cost to the government.

    Toppled Moammar Gaddafi. No American lives were lost.

    Significantly reduced the threat of nuclear terrorism by securing, consolidating and eliminating weapons-usable nuclear materials. Supervised the relocation of in excess of 3,000 pounds of highly enriched uranium and plutonium from other nations. Ten states have been fully freed of weapon-grade uranium over the last four years.

    Kicked banks out of Federal Student Loan Program, ending the wasteful decades-old practice of subsidizing banks to provide college loans.

    Boosted Fuel Efficiency Standards by nearly double.

    Coordinated international response to 2008 Financial Crisis, helped secure from G-20 nations more than $500 billion for the IMF to provide lines of credit and other support to stave off global depression.

    Began Asia “Pivot”: In 2011, reoriented American military and diplomatic priorities and focus from the Middle East and Europe to the Asian-Pacific region. Executed multipronged strategy of positively engaging China while reasserting U.S. leadership in the region by increasing American military presence and crafting new commercial, diplomatic, and military alliances with neighboring countries made uncomfortable by recent Chinese behavior.

    Passed Credit Card reforms, prohibiting credit card companies from raising rates without advance notification, mandates a grace period on interest rate increases, and strictly limits overdraft and other fees.

    Obama is a true Progressive… He’s going to do what HE knows is good for the rest of us no matter how many dead bodies he has to pile up just like those previous Progressives have like Stalin, Mao, Castro…!

    Obama’s right-wing detractors would have had so much easier a time expressing their true feelings if his dad had been from Niger instead of Kenya.

    Obama’s biggest error HAS been not vetoing Republican insertions in bills, like ACA, and letting THEM explain themselves. Too conciliatory, but every time he does anything, it will be wrong with conswervatives.

    If America had socialized medicine like the rest of the G8 and didn’t let the medical industry overcharge to the tune of 18 percent of GDP America would not have a deficit. The rest of the G8 average around 10.5percent of GDP and cover everybody.

    Ramirez should go to art school and learn how to draw humans that have heads wider than their noses and have eyes.

    “There are less people working now than when O was elected.”
    Only if you count public sector government jobs. Obama has reduced size of government, which Repubs can never seem to do.

    “Ended the war in Iraq on Bush’s timetable and they are still killing each other”
    Then why didn’t Bush end it himself? And why did he start it in the first place?

    “Killed Osama bin Laden……Operatives trained during Bush’s time.”
    Then why didn’t Bush kill him?

    “Turned Around U.S. Auto Industry……Screwed the bond holders, pump up the unions, US holding a lot of low value stock.”
    Turned around U.S. auto industry. Saved thousands of jobs.

    “Recapitalized banks…banks back on their feet at essentially zero cost to the government……Dem libs post daily here about how bad the Banks are.”

    “Toppled Moammar Gaddafi….He was defanged when Bush went into Iraq, turned over his toys.”
    Why didn’t Bush topple him? Or Reagan?

    The rest of your claims are silly folly….I’m getting board.

    No you’re not. You’re here continuously. You just can’t argue the case, specifically against the rest of the claims. Obama admin has some solid policy successes, and you can’t spin it away.

    “Best president ever”? No, of course not. But “worst president ever”? That’s stupid absurdity.

    I have problems with the Democrats, and Obama admin has made mistakes. But we have no other choice. Republican party has become a pathetic joke.

    ““Recapitalized banks…banks back on their feet at essentially zero cost to the government……Dem libs post daily here about how bad the Banks are.”
    Don’t you hate it when a person’s only rebuttal to an argument is “So?” Can you get any more immature than that?

    The big banks, with their reckless addiction to derivatives-gambling, were directly responsible for the Great Recession. Nevertheless, their failure would have dragged the whole economy into full depression.

    Despite the unpopularity of the big banks – especially among the Democratic base – Obama admin (and the Fed) recapitalized the banks, while imposing stress-tests and capital transparency requirements. This move was a “key driver of the recovery from the financial crisis” according to the Wall Street Journal. In fact, Europe is still crawling in full recession, precisely because their leaders have failed to find the nerve to take this step.

    Now run along, Stevie, and go play in the yard . . .

    The Obamanation and Cyrus do have about the same moral standards.
