Thanksgiving thread to highlight Obama's success and debunk BS from your Fox Newz watching uncle.

I never start it at Thanksgiving, but I ALWAYS finish it. Please post your success stories and debunks below (with links), show up armed with the facts and leave them sputtering sentence fragments "...but, but Benghazi...Socialism."

Don't get me wrong, I don't agree with everything Obama has done, but many of us are headed into enemy territory tomorrow and it's time to power up.

Here are just a few from the linked, although somewhat stale article. It's worth reviewing as my wingnuts ruminate over their favorite talking points.
Improving the Economy, Preventing Depression.

Obama pushed through and signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, otherwise known as “the stimulus package,” despite the fact that not one Republican voted for that bill. In addition, he launched recovery.gov, so that taxpayers could track spending from the Act. http://1.usa.gov/ibiFSs http://1.usa.gov/e3BJMk

In his first year, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act created and sustained 2.1 million jobs and stimulated the economy 3.5%. http://reut.rs/i46CEE
(Now more like 12 million jobs)

Obama completed the massive TARP financial and banking rescue plan, and recovered virtually all of its costs. http://1.usa.gov/eA5jVS http://bit.ly/eCNrD6
