All The Things Obama Did Do

That His Racist Enemies Refuse To Report Or Acknowledge

Today is

44rd President of the United States

Barack Obama

Farther below is a list of accomplishments by President Obama over the past eight years along positive impacts his presidency has had on the economy and our capitalistic system.

The vast majority of these results are unknown to tens of millions of people throughout the country as they have intentionally limited themselves to information provided by Fox News and other right-wing media outlets, as well as conservative talking heads. These sources have gone to great lengths to ensure that any Obama initiatives that benefited the average working American were never known by their faithful followers. Obliviously their objective was to minimize Obama's Presidency and relegate him to nothing more than a footnote in history.

Before looking at his record, here are a few observations by Obama and others:
