What has your president done for you lately?

May I have a list of President Obama's achievements since he came into office?

Considering the recent criticisms Obama has been dealt; and especially since the media has decided to roll with these criticisms, it would be good to have a comprehensive list of everything he and his office has managed to do for his constituents.

That said, it would also be important to know where President Obama has made key decisions when it comes to matters of the international relations and the security of the state.

This would be the place to leave no stone unturned.

This would not be a place for snark, as it would not be answering my question.

Thank you so much.

Could you possibly explain why you haven't been having any luck looking this up on your own. Whitehouse.gov is a great resource for this sort of thing, you can look up this list of Presidential Actions or look at his executive orders. Is this too complicated, too "official" or something else? Typing president obama's achievements into Google results in a wealth of information from a variety of sources. What about that process doesn't work for you?

Here is the closest thing to a complete list that I have found.

Jessamyn & Perp, do either of you know if there is anything like the link y'all posted for the Bush administration's run? Would be interesting to compare....

@Gainesvillain: Unfortunately, I don't think that his administration compiled much of one. They were notoriously secretive. You could try looking into the presidential library that he set up, but I don't know if they'll have anything like a concise summary.
