    Not me. But then, he never did anything for the police or the victims of crime.

    He certainly is popular with the cartel.

      Its often a trick question when someone asks well you like this politician then tell me some accomplishments. No matter what the response....in the eyes of the critic there were no accomplishments so its often pointless even trying to list accomplishments of certain people.

      Thread titles such a list the accomplishments of X often get clouded by polarizing opinions and that is just to bad. Cleary, Obama has accomplishments and cleary..GWB has accomplishments. You dont just serve 2 consecutive terms without getting something right.


      GWB shook hands with and was admired by Democrats. In the eyes of some democrats GWB was a good man.

      Obama shook hands with and was admired by GOP members. In the eyes of some GOP members Obama was a good man

        If you had asked this about Bill Clinton, I would be able to identify some good things that he did. I would submit that is proof that I am not completely biased against democratic presidents.

        Anyway, as I have thought about it, one good thing BO did, at least initially, was to continue the war on terror. I think he could have done a better job, but am pleased he continued it in some form.


        If that's your viewpoint, then it's from your conservative point of view.

            However, in the eyes of the majority of Americans, he was a self-serving incompetent who did his best to ruin America right up until his last day in office.

            If you like him, you can have him. However, do not waste your time trying to sell him to the more perceptive and intelligent among us.

            He was as useless as a pair of nipples on a torque wrench.

              My appreciation of Bill Clinton comes from a different angle.

              Mostly left industry alone +5

              Unlawful implementation of Paris Climate Treaty -1,000,000
              Score -1,213,000
              The way I figure it, preventing a war is many times the accomplishment as fighting one. On that count Geo W Bush loses out -- but perhaps not as big as Clinton, who sat on his hands for eight years. I have every confidence that the Clinton's were receiving all kinds of dough from Big Oil . . . . Probably Lil' Oil too. Where Bill Clinton fell down were on the national security issues. While Obama may have struggled, may have come down on the wrong side of an issue, Bill Clinton just shucked 'em until his eight years were finished. Arguably the most feckless administration in recent memory.

                The difference is that Clinton mostly left the private sector alone.

                  From my vocational point of view, Clinton, Bush Jr and Obama have been great. I've been making money hand over fist for the last twenty years. Even during the '08 financial tank, selling short kept me in green. Note that I don't consider a tanking economy to be among a president's accomplishments.

                  When all the chaff is blown away, government's entire raison d'être boils down to three words: organized armed force. Two consecutive presidents -- Clinton and Bush Jr -- pumped that pooch beyond all measure. Obama, for all his failings, which I'll grant were legion, at least brought some degree of responsibility and sanity back into the national security equation.

                      If less than 100 untraceable listening devices and spy-cams are discovered during the coming renovations in the White House, I might count that as a plus for Obama. It would show that he & his cronies had a little restraint.

                        I give Obama some credit. He and Michelle aren't the out-and-out pair of criminal felons Hill-Billy are. After all, he's a rapist, and she's a thug.

                          Why do you think I admitted to that? I am conservative and my view of him is colored by my beliefs. I believe feelings are less important than fiscal responsibility.

                          As a result, while some people may argue that "expanding government services" is a good thing, I balance the good with our ability to pay for things.
                          Massive debt that crushes the economy is not a good thing even if it makes the current politicians feel good about themselves.


                          For instance, the State of Illinois offers grants to college students to help pay for school. Those college students commit themselves to attending schools with the expectation of the money. Right now, since Illinois is bankrupt and without a budget (as well as corrupt) those students who relied on the funding are screwed, because the state cannot issue the grants even though the schools are demanding payments.
                          The students are screwed, the schools are screwed, but the politicians who promised the grants still feel good about themselves.

                              There was the stimulus program. Unlike FDR's WPA, CCC, and other job creating projects such as building big dams out west and the TWA power generation projects, most of the money went to frivolous projects with large kickbacks and bailouts to banks, GM, and Chrysler. It added about a trillion to his doubling of the National Debt.
