Thoughtfully and decisively picked the best of several bad choices regarding the war in Afghanistan
— Sure – and escalated into Pakistan. Possibly Yemen soon.
Gave a major precedent-setting speech supporting gay rights
— Guy talks a good game for sure. Yet DOJ has further litigated against gay rights (I think Brad blogged on this)
Restored America’s image around the globe
— Really? The world thinks he’s full of crap after his bullshit appearance and hissy demands in Copenhagen. And for receiving Nobel while escalating American Imperialism even further than Bush, if possible.
Banned torture of American prisoners
— Talks a good game. Still black sites torturing & CIA torturing. Has not repealed policy.
Stopped the free fall of the American economy
— Yup, no more free fall for banker boys!!!
Put the USA squarely back in the bilateral international community
— Huh? Too much for one sentence.
Put the USA squarely into the middle of the international effort to halt global warming
— See above re Copenhagen. Listen to Democracy Now! This morning. Not so much.
Stood up for educational reform
— Huh? Hired Arne Duncan who wants to privatize education and also have military schools and is funding these schools for lower grades even as we speak. Even Obama wouldn’t send his kids to public school in Chicago.
Won a Nobel peace prize
— See above. An embarassment.
Moved the trial of terrorists back into the American judicial system of checks and balances
— OK. For 2 or 3. The rest are military commissions and stuck in jail. Oh and he also has initiated “preventive detention.”
