4. Killed Osama Bin Laden
5. Extended benefits to same sex partners of Federal employees
2. You mean the PPACA?
4. DEVGRU killed Osama Bin Laden. Obama watched on T.V.
Not to trivilaize points 1 and 5 . . . but what about the fact that during Obama's presidency so far . . . the national debt has risen by an average of over $1.7 trillion a year — which is over $1.1 trillion more, per year, than it rose even under Bush.
I read this recently. Kind of disappointing, if you ask me -
"In the 39 months since Barack Obama took the oath of office as president of the United States, the federal government’s debt has increased by $5,027,761,476,484.56.
Although he has served less than a term, Obama is now the first American president to see the federal government's debt increase by more than $5 trillion during his time in office.
During the full eight years that George W. Bush served as president, the federal government's debt increased by $4,899,100,310,608.44. (Rising from $5,727,776,738,304.64 to $10,626,877,048,913.08.)"
