WOW!! That link is a major crock - o - you know what.
Voluntary disclosure of White House visitors for the first time in US history
After a 3 year court battle, and a Judge's order, he "voluntarily disclosed."
Promoted social responsibility through creation of serve.gov, a national database of volunteer opportunities
OK, that is nice. It could have been done by any number of private organizations, and in fact has been done repeatedly, but its nice to know instead
of looking out for my safety, or fixing the economy, he was instead still doing his community activist job.
Signed the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act, giving the FDA the authority to regulate the manufacturing, marketing, and sale of
tobacco for the first time
Gave a huge failing government entity more money and power to fail at regulating more things where they don't belong? Ok, I'll give him that one.
Nobody wants it, but he did it.
Increased average fuel economy standards from 27.5mpg to 35.5mpg, starting in 2016
Really? Come on, he did this? I think the consumers did this in 2005 when they quite buying $5 gas!
Signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, restoring basic protections against pay discrimination for women and other workers
Really? We already have this. I work in human resources, and this didn't change one iota of a thing we do in practice. More useless
Developed stimulus package, which includes approx. $18 billion for nondefense scientific research and development
So he campaigned on innovation and change, but he earmarked a whole 1.8% of a Trillion Dollar package to innovation? WOW, I'm unimpressed.
Issued executive order to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay
What? Really? So it is closed? No? I don't understand.
OK, I'm bored now, I hope that is a parody site, I couldn't make it all the way to the end, but I'm guessing there is a punchline.
