"I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president -- with the possible exceptions of Johnson, F.D.R., and Lincoln -- just in terms of what we've gotten done in modern history."
Better than Kennedy, Clinton, Truman, Reagan, George Washington, Eisenhower or Teddy Roosevelt, to just name a few?
And just what are his accomplishments? Highest unemployment in decades? Largest government expansion? The highest debt increase ever? The most out of touch president ever?
And, 60 Minutes Overtime conveniently omits the footage in their broadcast?
It's more accurate to claim his being the 44th best ever.
The full CBS interview
KROFT: Tell me, what do you consider your major accomplishments? If this is your last speech. What have you accomplished?
PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, we’re not done yet. I’ve got five more years of stuff to do. But not only saving this country from a great depression. Not only saving the auto industry. But putting in place a system in which we’re gonna start lowering health care costs and you’re never gonna go bankrupt because you get sick or somebody in your family gets sick. Making sure that we have reformed the financial system, so we never again have taxpayer-funded bailouts, and the system is more stable and secure. Making sure that we’ve got millions of kids out here who are able to go to college because we’ve expanded student loans and made college more affordable. Ending Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Decimating al Qaeda, including Bin Laden being taken off the field. Restoring America’s respect around the world.
Didn’t someone else play a much bigger part in “decimating Al Qaeda?” Traveling the globe apologizing for America “decimating Al Qaeda” improves our image? Plunging us $15 Trillion in debt is an accomplishment? Expanding student loans while we have malcontents complaining about having to pay student loans back? Ending taxpayer bailouts, after giving more taxpayer bailouts than ever?
Is he on crack?
