    [QUOTE=bitonti;2780235]he's made it through his life without crashing any Navy aircraft. that's 5 less than Mccain.[/QUOTE]

    ...because he was too chickens@#$ to join the military? Because he chose to go to cushy Harvard instead? Wow, what a weak pathetic statement.

    Stay on topic. This isn't about the past. The thread was about Obama. Pretty telling that you're trying to make this about Bush.

    [QUOTE=Seagirt;2787814]Oh, and he's a Marxist-Leninist who wants to transfer America's wealth to the U.N. to address Third World poverty. Its called higher taxes; federal, state and local. Its also called Reparations to the inner cities.[/QUOTE]

    Did he learn that from being submerged 20 years in Black Liberation Theology by his former spiritual mentor?

    You are kidding right??

    He sponsored or co-sponsored 570 bills in the 109th and 110th Congress.

    He sponsored or co-sponsored 15 bills that have become LAW since he joined the Senate in 2005. Two addressed foreign policy:

    * Promote relief, security and democracy in the Congo (2125)
    * Develop democratic institutions in areas under Palestinian control (2370).

    Three addressed public health:

    * Improve mine safety (2803)
    * Increased breast cancer funding (597)
    * Reduce preterm delivery and complications, reduce infant mortality (707).

    Two addressed openness and accountability in government:

    * Strengthening the Freedom of Information Act (2488 )
    * Full disclosure of all entities receiving federal funds (2590)

    Two addressed national security

    * Extend Terrorist Risk Insurance (467)
    * Amend the Patriot Act (2167)

    One addressed the needs of the Armed Forces

    * Wave passport fees to visit graves, attend memorials/funerals of veterans abroad (1184).


    Some of Obama's Other Accomplishments:

    1. As a State Senator passed bipartisan legislation That expanded health care coverage To 154,000 Illinois residents, including 70,000 children.While in the Illinois Senate he sponsored 233 Health Care/Public Health Bills .
    2. Was chief sponsor of bill creating the Health Care Justice Act.
    3. As state senator passed the Illinois Gift Ban, which prohibited legislators, state officers and employees, and judges from soliciting or receiving gifts from a person or entity with interests affected by government.
    4. Successfully co-sponsored a prescription drug discount buying club program for seniors and the disabled.
    5. Co-sponsored ban on discrimination based on sexual orientation. The measure became law after Obama was elected to the U.S. Senate
    6. Along with Senator Feingold sponsored groundbreaking ethics legislation that was lauded by both sides of the senate
    7. Along with Republican Sen. Tom Coburn, Obama won enactment of a law creating a single, searchable database of all federal contracts, grants and loans.
    8. Along with Republican Richard Lugar sponsored legislation to strengthen international efforts to destroy conventional weapons.
    9. Was lead sponsor of a bill to provide relief and promote democracy in the Democratic Republic of Congo, which was signed into law in December 2006.


    And that doesnt even mention his own personal accomplishments. Being a black male raised by a single mom and becoming the President of Harvard Law Review is no joke.

    Since sponsoring bills that never becam a law can hardley be considered an accomplishment lets focus on the groundbreaking stuff he has tackled while being largely a no-show Senator, continuing his 'present but not voting' tactics established as a state senator

    Not one of these changed the course of the subjects at hand and largely represent support for funding on human aid projects.

    Not exactly difficult stuff to vote to spend other peoples money(taxpayers) to help the sick and oppressed.

    His State Senator tenure was a laughable accumulation of a near record-setting number of 'present- not voting' selections.

    Nothing here speaks to 'Change', or fresh ideas, or anything he is running on.

    Uhhh I just listed that 15 of the bills he sponsored went to law. 15 in a relatively short span of 2 years. I also mentioned about half a dozen bills he passed while state senators.

    Can you actually read, or like Palin are you programmed to repeat some talking point even after it was disproven.

    But being an average middle-class girl growing up to be a state Governor is. Got it.

    And a whole half dozen bills? And hundreds of non-votes. No-doubt stuff like supporting sick people.

    His inaction outnumbers his involvement by a wide margin

    Kenny - Seriously, thanks for posting Obama's accomplishments. But there's still a major problem with the 130 'Present' votes.

    Additionally, you should see the stuff state legislators take credit for here in Albany when they really had not much to do with the actual bill at hand. It's called 'resume padding.'
