    Most of these accomplishments aren’t actual accomplishments.
    I.E. the first “accomplishment”

  2. the night of the zombie g says:

    if you’re saying things like “is seeking” and “supports”… and his term is over…
    it probably wasn’t actually an accomplishment… but an attempted accomplishment that failed…

  3. --- SGT--- SNIPER. says:

    Nothing here ………………..

  4. Curt J says:

    The Libs out here will disagree with you, or call you an outright liar. Additionally, they seem to feel (note: not think) that Obozo is the best President we’ve ever had, even though he’s by far the most destructive.

  5. demon says:

  6. Hnst abe says:

  7. Meredith says:

    He didn’t accomplish them. He wrote about them.

  8. Bill says:

    Why are so many of these “accomplishments” about restricting reproductive freedom?
    Biggest tax cut in history while starting two wars, leading to the biggest deficits.
    Turned around an economy that was in recession, then turned it into a much worse recession.

    Bush did a lot of good deeds. Obama has not done damn thing but give homos attention, hippies, drug addicts, welfare bums, illegals, and commies and muslims attnetion. Hell obama funded alkaida 150 thousand!! he let the drug lord of the cartels sneak back to mexico to avoid any trouble!
    he brought 3 terrorists to be held here instead of england.
    spilled a bp frigate, forked up the unemployed rates, illegals, crime rates, sunnk us in debt, raises taxes adn gas prices , food, energy, lied about ending the war in Iraq, lied about homeowner’s foreclosue agreements and bank co-operation.
    so he wants mddle class to lose thier homes but tricks the poor into thnking they can get a home and keep it. pfffft.
    nobama hussein has only lied and put our nation in jeabardy . bush would have sent over several fleets already to flya round N korea and make Kim Jong sweat and shut his mouth. bush would never have allowed us to be in such a hole and unstable.
    he may be a zionist puppet but I felt safer than I do barry insane. either way they are all reptilian elites playing games with us.

    Good to see that copying and pasting chain emails is still alive and well and that it still requires not a single brain cell on the part of the one doing the copying and pasting.
