Obama's accomplishments

That's why the 1% keeps trying to program you into believing you are suffering under his Presidency. It's a ploy to distract from the fact that many of his programs have curtailed their rampant, unbridled greed. This article lists Obama's many accomplishments that cause the average American well being. Unfortunately for the 1% our well being equates to their 'suffering' loss of all those profits they could have made had we just believed their lies and manipulations. That's a weird definition of suffering though, since they are rich beyond compare just the way things are. But no, they want it ALL. A partial list of Obama's accomplishments follow, which drives the thieves up the wall.
