Obama's a lame duck president and he knows it. The left is pinning all their hopes on Swillary in 2016 and doing their best to cover for Obama to save the progressive face.
For all of the bluster and thrill-up-the-leg excitement, what will Obama have accomplished, aside from record spending and record golf outings?

Here's a list of the "Top 50" Obama accomplishments, according to the Washington Monthly:
http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/magazine/mar...

If you can make it past #13 "Improved America's Image Abroad" without losing your breakfast congrats!:)

Obama's two biggest accomplishments have been 1) passing one of the most controversial laws (Obamacare) in American history, one that most polls show mist Americans wish were repealed! And 2) passing a nearly trillion dollar stimulus that is so arguable no one can clearly and without doubt say did anything at all to aid in America's recovery.

As for military accomplishment, Bush didn't pin Saddam in his dirt hidey hole, and Obama didn't put a bullet in Osama's radical little forehead. That credit goes ENTIRELY to our soldiers.

OK, so Obama passed Wall Street reforms - Uhhuh ...and we really believe these same banks aren't too big to fail? I don't think so. Dodd/Frank are the same morons that forced banks into giving loans to people who couldn't afford to make the payments. No one in their right mind believes Obama made a bit of difference with this bill.

Did Obama turn the auto industry around? Here's an article from Politifacts:

Barack Obama cannot claim full credit for this outcome. According to several experts, he needs to share it with his predecessor, President George W. Bush. Dr. James Rubenstein at Miami University co-wrote a post-bankruptcy assessment for the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. Rubenstein said no one should overlook the importance of Bushs decision to use $17.6 billion in TARP money in December 2008 to keep General Motors and Chrysler afloat.

"The Bush Administration provided short-term bridge loans," Rubenstein said. "That allowed the Obama Administration to take a couple of months to assess the situation."

The list goes on for 50 items, all of which are either arguable, flat out ridiculous (as in the Saving America's Reputation hogwash, or so trivial they hardly made a blip on the radar.

In the end, Obama will go down as the most controversial and divisive president in history. Period.

We need a president who acts like one and does the job he's being paid by the people to do. We get that he's your hero because he blows off work to go play on the company dime just like you do.

Sadly, I'm afraid it has gotten to the point that no President should be allowed to play golf.....

That is exactly what your side did with Bush.

Absolutely. Yours seems to be hanging out on Topix, though. You really should get out more.
