Giving Obama Credit: Gaddafi’s death, Pan Am Flight 103 and terror

Urban CNY

Now, I’m just wondering out loud: how can a man who was seen as a foreign policy lightweight capture more high-level terrorists than the Bush Administration did during its entire eight-year reign?

Pan-Am flight 103 happened 23 years ago under President Ronald Reagan, and he’s now revered as a great American leader. Obama has done what he promised during the presidential campaign; his to-do list could read like this: Health Care, check; Capture Osama Bin laden, check; Repeal “don’t ask, don’t tell,” check. These are just a few things that he’s delivered on.

Check your past presidential campaigns and then compare the list of what was promised to what was actually accomplished.

Obama deserves some credit for making great strides towards his accomplishments — and that is not happening, I’m just askin’.
