I want to thank columnist Todd Dorman for his excellent analysis (Tuesday column) to a distraught reader relative to President Barack Obama. I would like to add the following mentioned briefly at the end of his article: “He’s not without accomplishments.”
Andrew Sullivan was quoted in The Week, a centrist publication, that Obama has a rather impressive record of accomplishment. In only two short years, he’s headed off a full economic meltdown with the stimulus, saved the U.S. banking system and the automobile industries at a minimal cost to the taxpayer; imposed new regulations on the financial sector; ended the Iraq War; gotten rid of “don’t ask, don’t tell”; killed Osama bin Laden, and, oh yes, overhauled the profoundly dysfunctional U.S. health care system. And he did all this while “fighting a global depression and a brutal, extremist right-wing opposition.”
President Obama also had something to do with the fall of the Gadhafi administration in Libya.
