The Obama Administration's 15+ Scandalous "Achievements"

Sometimes I think my conservative compatriots go a bit too far.  They say that the three-year-old Obama administration is totally void of achievement. That is total nonsense; in three short years Barack Obama has increased the national debt by $5 trillion dollars, that's more than George Bush did in eight years and almost as much as every president from Washington-Clinton combined.

I don't want to give you the impression that Obama's only achievement was the record increase in debt, but the man who promised change Washington D.C. can also count some scandals among his achievements.  Here are just some of his achievements:
  • Ignoring a court order to ease up on restrictions against deep water drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, instead issuing tougher restrictions.
  • The GSA and Secret Service scandals neither of which should be blamed on Obama directly, both of which show his poor management of the federal government.
Interestingly the President has taken a wait and see attitude on the secret service scandal:
"I expect that investigation to be thorough and I expect it to be rigorous. If it turns out that some of the allegations that have been made in the press are confirmed, then of course I'll be angry."
Which is rather confusing for the man who said the Cambridge police acted stupidly, and injected race into the Trayvon Martin case before the allegations in the press were confirmed.

It started out as 15 different achievements but thanks to reader feedback we are up to 19 successes of the Obama Administration (and I am sure there's lots more). Granted they are all scandals, but no one should ever say the administration has achieved nothing.

If you have scandals I missed please leave a comment or tweet me @yidwithlid and I will add to the list.

You forgot one: He did have a beer summit between the police officer and the black Harvard professor (after inserting race into the latter's arrest). But on the plus side, the beer summit went better than his meetings with President Netanyahu!

Obviously, there are quite a few more, but I'll go with non-recess appointments...

Don't forget these.

Lightsquared getting fast tracked and special consideration
.
GE paying zero taxes yet the CEO gets special access to the Obama White House.

BP--how can we forget the poor record of managing the crisis and the refusal to abide by a judge ruling.

AIG--another business that was too big to fail.

Fannie, Freddie--the failure to regulate them or abolish them after they were a main mover in the financial crisis.

Giving up on our space travel, and not sending the Space Shuttle to Houston.

What about the Reset button, the more space after the election and selling our our Eastern European allies on missile defense for the Russians?

Here are some additions to the list.

1. Pushing through Obamacare on a party line vote after claiming that it would reduce the deficit by $130 billion knowing that the true cost would eventually increase the national deficit by at least $2 trillion.

2. Pushing through an $800 billion + "stimulus" bill by claiming the money was needed for shovel ready projects which would create jobs and turn the economy around. After criticism that the "stimulus" did nothing to improve the economy or create jobs, admitting there were no shovel ready projects to spend the money on.
