Wild accusations are being thrown around as the election season heats up as if repeated blasts will eventually be believed by the gullible public. There have been some remarkable accomplishments by this administration in the past four years:
The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009; saving the U.S. auto industry; credit card reform; Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2011; cutting taxes on wages; winning the Nobel Peace prize and increasing U.S. stature in global community; Affordable Care Act of 2010; student loan reform; Wall Street reform; repeal of "don't ask; don't tell"; tax breaks for small businesses; raising fuel efficiency standards; ending the war in Iraq; job creation; the courageous killing of Osama bin Laden; surge attacks in Afghanistan; establishing withdrawal from Afghanistan; civil rights protected; champion of the middle class; and more.
This is the record of a true leader; one who studies the issues collects facts, confers with experts, and acts courageously. <2009>I am voting for President Barack Obama to continue his work for the next four years. It would be a mistake to change administratin the middle of a recovery.
