    Name one Obama accomplishment

    Can someone name one Obama accomplishment in government that's NOT defeating Hillary in a primary?


    Thanks.

    I can't improve on that.


    SAJF: Honestly, were you asking the same questions about the current numbskull in the White House back in 2000? Probably not. And Bush could not even list any academic credentials to indicate even the potential for President-level ability.

    If this is an honest question and you truly had a desire to know about Obama's accomplishments, you simply could type in "Obama accomplishment" in Google.

    But, I'm guessing this is just a tired, unoriginal attempt at trying to show that Obama has no accomplishments. That's silly and amateurish and doesn't do Republicans any real good.

    But to answer your question....the creation of an internet database for government spending. Similar to the one that Sarah Palin is proposing and doesn't realize that it already exists

    I suspect that this will somehow not meet what you arbitrarily consider an "accomplishment", but that's not really of any concern to intelligent people. Stick with the "lack of experience" argument. That at least holds some water. Thanks.

    Senate Passes Coburn-Obama Bill to Create Internet Database of Federal Spending

    WASHINGTON - U.S. Senators Barack Obama (D-IL) and Tom Coburn (R-OK) today hailed the Senate's passage of the "Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act," a bill that will create a Google-like search engine and database to track approximately $1 trillion in federal grants, contracts, earmarks and loans.

    "By helping to lift the veil of secrecy in Washington, this database will help make us better legislators, reporters better journalists, and voters more active citizens," Obama said. "It's both unusual and encouraging to see interest groups and bloggers on the left and the right come together to achieve results. This powerful grassroots alliance shows that at the end of the day, Americans want to see Congress work together to get something done and not continue to engage in the partisan gridlock that so often brings Capitol Hill to a grinding halt."

    "Every American has the right to know how their government spends their money, and then to hold elected officials accountable for those decisions. I applaud my colleagues for unanimously supporting a bill that will aid the American people in that effort," Dr. Coburn said. "This bill is a small but significant step toward changing the culture in Washington. Only by fostering a culture of openness, transparency and accountability will Congress come together to address the mounting fiscal challenges that threaten our future prosperity."

    "The group that deserves credit for passing this bill, however, is not Congress, but the army of bloggers and concerned citizens who told Congress that transparency is a just demand for all citizens, not a special privilege for political insiders. Their remarkable effort demonstrates that our system of government does work when the people take the reins of government and demand change," Dr. Coburn said.

    More than 100 organizations ranging from Americans for Prosperity and Taxpayers for Common Sense to the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and Greenpeace have endorsed S. 2590.

    Dozens of editorials boards across the country including the Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, Chicago Sun-Times and The Oklahoman have also endorsed S. 2590.

    Forty-three Senators co-sponsored S. 2590 including Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN), Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), Tom Carper (D-DE), Susan Collins (R-ME), Joe Lieberman (D-CT), John McCain (R-AZ), Hillary Clinton (D-NY), John Kerry (D-MA), John Cornyn (R-TX) and others

    Well he was a Governor of one of the largest states in the country and he did have a better GPA than the clown he ran against in 2004, if that's what you mean?:yes:

    I would add that being President of the Harvard Law Review -- as a child of a poorish single-parent household is kind of like winning the Heisman trophy despite a gimpy leg.

    An historical note from wikipedia:

    Prominent alumni of the Harvard Law Review include Supreme Court Justices Edward Sanford, Felix Frankfurter, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Antonin Scalia, Stephen Breyer and Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., Presidential nominee Senator Barack Obama, Secretary of State Dean Acheson, Charles Hamilton Houston, Alger Hiss, Archibald MacLeish, Secretary of Transportation and Brown v. Board of Education attorney William Coleman, Jr., Judge Richard Posner, Chief Judge Henry Friendly, Chief Judge Michael Boudin, U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, former U.S. Solicitor General Paul Clement, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Chris Cox, print and broadcast journalist Jeffrey Toobin, former New York governor Eliot Spitzer, Harvard Law School Dean Elena Kagan, Yale Law School Dean Harold Koh, former Canadian ambassador Allan Gotlieb, former Assistant Attorney General Viet Dinh, former New York State Solicitor General Preeta D. Bansal, University of Texas President William C. Powers, and former Harvard University president Derek Bok.

    Read about being governor in Texas sometime. Sarah Palin could do that job, anyone could. And, he didn't even get that for himself: his Daddy got it for him. Think about it, is your argument that Bush isn't stupid? Then please explain his complete failure at every aspect of his job?

    OK then, would you support Ted Kennedy for President? His colleagues love him, he has more huge, bi-partisan accomplishments than anyone in history and experience to beat the band.

    Please rephrase your question. You asked for one accomplishment - you received that and then some. If you request this thread locked and start a new one with your new request, perhaps we will do your research for you.

    Or, instead of cluttering the board, you can simply click on this link and look it up for yourself.

    Put a lot of thought into that, didn't you?

    Thanks. There was some good stuff in that Google search.


    For example, who would know better than a fellow senator from Texas?

    In the senate: major bipartisan bills on government transparency, ethics reform and nuclear proliferation.

    In the Illinois Senate: Major reforms of the criminal justice systems, particularly regarding interrogations and the death penalty. Also several big education and health care bills.

    Opposed the Iraq war in advance, for pretty much exactly the reasons it wound up going badly, not out of some reflexive antiwar stance (as he approved of the Afghan invasion.)

    Worked his way up from a poor household run by a single mother to the editor of Harvard Law Review, a position that basically allowed him to do whatever he wanted in life going forward. Passed up a lot of easy money to go organize voting drives and to try and make things better in depressed urban communities.
