Oh, yes, how about the Recovery Act — investing in the infrastructure, Wall Street reform — empowering the consumer and investors, stopping predatory lending; middle-class tax cuts, credit-card reform, building a clean-energy economy, affordable health-care act, children's health-insurance expansion (SCHIP), ending combat operations in Iraq, implementing new strategies for Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Education: reforming student lending, spurring innovation; a new GI bill, increasing educational opportunities for veterans by making college more affordable for returning service members.
President Obama repealed "don't ask, don't tell," strengthening our national security and ending this discriminatory law; protecting against hate crimes; and pushing legislation for the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, making it easier for women to challenge unequal-pay practices.
These are just a few of the things he has done in his first two years in office as president even with the opposition of the "No" party — the Republican Party, which said that it will do everything it can to make sure that President Obama will be a one-term president.
President Obama is a true leader, a great foreign diplomat, and an intellect to boot.
Re: "Where there's politics, there's bent truths":
Talk about bent truths. Mr. Todd Cohen didn't just bend the truth, he blew it up. He claims that Mitt Romney saved many businesses by buying companies and saving them from bankruptcy. The exact opposite is the real truth. He did buy up companies which he used for his own business and then sent them into bankruptcy, laying off those same people Mr. Cohen claims Romney saved. It's also funny that they claim Obama is destroying the economy that George Bush destroyed. He wants to tax the super-rich so they pay the same percentage as we do. What is wrong with that?
Yes, Mr. Cohen, there are people who have no clue what is going on.You have just proven that.
