With Democrats and our obscenely partisan news media singing the praises of all things liberal, and assuring us all that we really do want four more years of record gas prices, unending joblessness and fiscal suicide, perhaps a more thorough review of their actual accomplishments is now in order.
Here are his top 20 most significant achievements:
20) Coming up with inventive new assaults on mathematics to misrepresent rampant “stimulus” corruption, fraud, waste and complete and utter failure as “recovery.”
19) Obliterating the coal industry, illegally crippling American energy exploration, manufacturing needless fuel shortages and exploding gas prices to record highs.
18) Creating an Orwellian alternate reality for liberals in which one jaw-droppingly outrageous lie after another is reported as fact and anyone who questions “hope” and “change” is crucified as a pathological liar.
17) Keeping our treasonous Supreme Court supplied with enough flaming left-wing fanatics to maintain his Marxist war on the Constitution.
16) Removing U.S. forces from Iraq–made possible only by nobody listening to Democrats on The Surge.
15) Being in office when Osama bin Laden was located–made possible only by nobody listening to Democrats on prisoner interrogations.
14) Bringing flagrant anti-white bigotry, race-baiting and discrimination into the mainstream, and even selling it as “equality.”
13) Fighting imaginary sexism with the actual sexist treatment of males.
12) Forcing through taxpayer-funded handouts for failing “green” energy companies (Democrat friends and campaign contributors) at every turn.
11) Ignoring Congress, the Supreme Court and arbitrarily overturning the Defense of Marriage Act.
10) Remedying the problem of having to follow fund-raising laws (see here, here and here) or leave important elections to the voters (see here, here, here, here, here, here, here).
9) Arming blood-thirsty Mexican drug cartels with U.S. assault rifles to manufacture evidence for a federal attack on gun rights…and then intimidating whistle-blowers and lying about it at every turn.
8) Illegally taking over the auto industry and doctoring the numbers to misrepresent the bailouts as something other than a massive taxpayer-funded union payoff.
7) Ignoring Congress and illegally using the EPA to impose Cap-and-Trade, which the courts eventually struck down as blatantly illegal.
6) Restoring the left’s time-disproven “grovel, appease and surrender” foreign policy approach while crippling national defense and abandoning our allies…all to make us more “popular” among those who hate our guts.
5) Ignoring Congress and illegally forcing through amnesty for criminals breaking into our country, as they bankrupt our schools, prisons and especially, our welfare systems.
4) Spending the country into oblivion.
3) Burying the economy under an avalanche of crushing, disastrous tax hikes and regulations while creating a culture of nanny state dependence.
2) Responding to widespread public rejection of his illegal, economy-killing health care takeover by shoving it down our throats anyway.
1) Absolutely shredding what was left of the Constitution, through tyrannical, in-your-face abuses of power and one illegal government takeover after another.
