If he wasn't president, I'd probably have hung out with the alcoholic frat boy stoner back in the day. (if I was alive).

Obama has or will do many great things.
He will get Cap and Trade passed. This will lower the US carbon emissions. If he is right this will not only stop the increase in the temperature of the US but lower it.
He will get Healthcare reform passed. It is planned to cut 500 billion dollars from Medicare. He will not cut care.
But I think his greatest Achievement is the saving of Social Security.
No one before him has succeeded. President Bush tried, but was unable to persuade any Democrats to vote for his plan (half of the money those under 50 paid to Social security would belong to them.)
Obama has succeeded. The machinery is already in motion.
This is how he did it.
1. He eliminated the Cost Of Living Adjustment (COLA) from Social Security. This means as inflation cheapens the dollar, Social Security retirees will not get an increase. That means that the number of people paying per retiree’s check will rise from 3 to 15. This makes the fund solvent for many, many years.
2. He spent 4.2 trillion dollars his first year. A fantastic feat! All of the other past presidents together have not spent that much!
You may ask where the money will come from. You may have heard that each American owes $40,000 or $50,000 (including kids). While true, no one will be expected to pay it. Obama will simply print the money. That will cause inflation. 500% inflation will cause a bit of pain, but wages will rise so that for most, $10 gasoline will not be a problem.
if you make $50,000 now it will become $250,000 If you make just $20,000 that will become $100,000.
Part of the brilliance of this plan is that the retirees' $1000 checks will just pay for their Medicare supplemental policy. No money for food or rent. Medicare does not pay for deaths by starvation nor for being frozen. This will cut down on both the cost of Medicare and the number of retirees drawing Social Security checks.
Social Security is saved. Obama is truly the Messiah.
And 90% of those on Social Security voted for Change.
For the rest, Obama has promised new taxes on the wealthy- those making over $30,000 under that last definition.
He promised to double energy costs before inflation. You voted to double your energy bill, before inflation. A $100 bill will become $1,000. Cap and Trade will accomplish this.
O will disarm the US. He has agreed to the UN proposal to eliminate the private ownership of guns in the US.
No other man in the United States has or could accomplish this great feat. We can soon sleep better knowing that none of our law abiding neighbors will be able to harm us. Continue to sleep and see what else he can accomplish.
Obama will go down in history as a man with fantastic accomplishments. One who wreaked revenge for the poor of the world on the richest nation.
The poor will still be poor, and so will the entire US.
