But how much did Obama really accomplish while president? And was it even good? According to one source, Obama’s accomplishments should make a lot of liberals rethink things.
Barack Obama was the country’s first black president and so for liberals, that was all that mattered. But between 2008 and 2017, he sure did rack up a lot of accomplishments — although America’s Freedom Fighters points out that they aren’t necessarily good ones.
Here are a few of the highlights:
First President to preside over a cut to the credit-rating of the United States.
First President to violate the War Powers Act.
First President to be held in contempt of court for illegally obstructing oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.
First President to abrogate bankruptcy law to turn over control of companies to his union supporters.
First President to by-pass Congress and implement the Dream Act through executive fiat.
First President to order a secret amnesty program that stopped the deportation of illegal immigrants across the U.S., including those with criminal convictions.
First President to demand a company hand-over $20 billion to one of his political appointees.
First President to tell a CEO of a major corporation (Chrysler) to resign.

First President to tell the military men and women that they should pay for their own private insurance because they “volunteered to go to war and knew the consequences.”
Then he was the First President to tell the members of the military that THEY were UNPATRIOTIC for balking at the last suggestion. (Thank God he didn’t get away with THIS one.)
