So Obama's one-year anniversary of his innauguration has arrived. Let's take a look back at his first year. (What he's accomplished, some major political events, etc) Maybe we can predict what's to come also. :lookaround:

That was going to happen no matter who came to power.

I honestly can't think of anything that he accomplished that was any good. Unless someone else can.

- Closed down Guantanamo Bay

Now they're in the US. Be a bit more afraid now if they broke out.

- First Black President Inaugurated

Irrelevant

- He got a dog!!11! omfg b4rb3q

Irrelevant

- Adopts Council of Governers

Irrelevant, just going to start socialist rants by the misinformed.

- Iranian relations continue to deteriorate

They were already bad to begin with.

- California legalizes weed

Irrelevant, blame Arnold not Obama for defacto rules (Self protection tasers are illegal but marijuana is legal :rolleyes:)

- Economic downturn

Irrelevant, Bush is who caused it not Obama. He was just unlucky to get the burden.

- Epic stimulus fail

The point of a stimulus is to, as Afterburner (I think) said, "reduce the negative effect during crisis at the cost of luxury during a good time", so irrelevant.

- Conan O'Brien/Jay Leno fiasco

Irrelevant

- Haiti Earthquake

Irrelevant

- Wicked Midwest Winter

Irrelevant

So...he did like 1 thing total. He's tied with Bush so far (in 2001)

For better or worse he didn't accomplish much I'd say. The healthcare bill hasn't passed (thankfully to me) The Iraq War has been going well, but it was starting to turn around before he came into office. However Afghanistan and Pakistan have both gotten worse, or so it seems. That might just be media hype, I don't know. Two terrorist attacks occured on U.S. soil (one was only attempted, and failed) but as I explained before I don't think that can be blamed on Obama at all.

And as for the one thing I liked about him, I don't know how much Obama has really repaired our image with the rest of the world. I don't think he's really accomplished much there either, but board members from Europe might be able to comment on that better.

So yeah, all in all it just doesn't seem like much has changed. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.
