Democrats Need To Show Some Guts

While the Republican's fear and smear campaign has riled up their base, it has also intimidated Democrats. The Democrats have been on the defensive it seems since Obama took office. However, there is a lot that the administration has accomplished that we can be proud of.

President Obama and the Democrats accomplished a great deal in the less than two years since he took office:

  • Stabilized the economy through a stimulus package whose benefits are all around you if you just take a look.
  • The same stimulus package included a tax cut.
  • Saved the American auto industry. In the long run the tax payers may actually make a profit before it goes back to the private sector.
  • Passed health care reform that we will start the see the benefits of on Thursday.
  • Passed credit card reform.
  • Moved most of the combat troop out of Iraq.
  • Actively working on a peace plan for Israel and Palestine.

And this is just off the top of my head. There is probably more that I didn't think of.

The economy is still a work in progress, and there is a lot to be done.

President Obama has accomplished more in less than two years in office than in President Bush's two terms. Why would we ever want to go back?
