10. "He hasn't done any of the stuff he said he'd do."

Next time somebody says that, you can recite the following:

1. Stopped economy from plummeting by passing the stimulus. (DJI 8000 when he took office, 13 000 now. Good news for your RETIREMENT FUND.)

2. Iraq war ENDED

3. UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE (evaded every President since Truman) PASSED (a 'big fucking deal' to quote Uncle Joe)

4. Wall Street REFORMED (Dodd Frank law)

5. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau CREATED

6. BP Oil Spill PLUGGED, $1 billion trust fund wrung out of BP to clean up their mess. (Compare that to GHW Bush and his vapid response to the EXXON VALDES spill, where he shrugged and said 'not my problem. Go sue Exxon.')

7. BIN LADEN DEAD.

8. Don't ask don't tell ENDED.

9. Equal pay for equal work (Lilly Ledbetter Law) ENACTED.

10. MEDICARE BOOSTED.

11. Un-funded Bush Era Prescription Drug Program DONUT HOLE PLUGGED.

12. Democratic reforms in the middle east started (ARAB SPRING)

13. Gadaffi DEAD (that one REALLY makes conservative heads explode, given that Reagan tried to kill Gaddafi in a 1986 bombing raid on Tripoli and failed).

14. Student Loans EXPANDED by cutting out banks as middle men (no more private profits with public risk).

15. Car FUEL EFFICIENCY STANDARDS ENACTED. Want to cut dependence on foreign oil? How about STARTING by DOUBLING Fuel efficiency in cars instead of strip mining Yellowstone Park?

16. Detroit auto industry RESCUED. A million jobs saved, MONEY PAID BACK IN FULL, GM now number 1 auto manufacturer.

17. TARP bank bailouts REPAID WITH INTEREST. (Thus, by definition, no longer a 'bail out.')
