With the new year, it’s time to review the many accomplishments of Pres. Obama in 2009.

  • Sworn in as President
  • Appointed Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court
  • Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize

I’m trying to think of something else that could be legitimately credited to Obama as an accomplishment. I’m not counting bills signed into law as an accomplishment because the work is done by the House, and all the President has to do is scribble his signature on the dotted line.

OK, I’ll give President Obama credit for two other accomplishments in 2009: he asked for and got Congress to spend trillions of dollars, and he read lots of speeches off teleprompters.

Can you think of anything else?
