Response to Adenoid_Hynkel (Original post)

23. So here's my take on these wicked people...

After five presidents over a century failed to create universal health insurance, President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act (2010). But what the GOP remembers is that our President is not white.

President Obama signed the $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in 2009 to spur economic growth amid greatest recession since the Great Depression. Weeks after stimulus went into effect, unemployment claims began to subside. Twelve months later, the private sector began producing more jobs than it was losing, and it has continued to do so for twenty-three straight months, creating a total of nearly 3.7 million new private-sector jobs. But what the GOP remembers is that our President is not white.

President Obama signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (2010) to re-regulate the financial sector after its practices caused the Great Recession. The new law tightens capital requirements on large banks and other financial institutions, requires derivatives to be sold on clearinghouses and exchanges, mandates that large banks provide “living wills” to avoid chaotic bankruptcies, limits their ability to trade with customers’ money for their own profit, and creates the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to crack down on abusive lending products and companies. But what the GOP remembers is that our President is not white.

President Obama ended the War in Iraq and ordered all U.S. military forces out of the country. Last troops left on December 18, 2011 But what the GOP remembers is that our President is not white.

In 2011, President Obama ordered special forces raid of secret compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, in which the terrorist leader Osama Bin Laden was killed and a trove of al-Qaeda documents was discovered. But what the GOP remembers is that our President is not white.

President Obama saved the auto industry. But what the GOP remembers is that our President is not white.
President Obama repealed “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”. But what the GOP remembers is that our President is not white.

In March 2011, the USA joined a coalition of European and Arab governments in military action, including air power and naval blockade, and Moammar Gaddafi was toppled. But what the GOP remembers is that our President is not white.

President Obama signed the Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility, and Disclosure Act (2009), which prohibits credit card companies from raising rates without advance notification, mandates a grace period on interest rate increases, and strictly limits overdraft and other fees. But what the GOP remembers is that our President is not white.

President Obama signed Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act in 2009, giving women who are paid less than men for the same work the right to sue their employers after they find out about the discrimination, even if that discrimination happened years ago. But what the GOP remembers is that our President is not white.

President Obama signed Hate Crimes Prevention Act (2009), which expands existing hate crime protections to include crimes based on a victim’s sexual orientation, gender, or disability, in addition to race, color, religion, or national origin. But what the GOP remembers is that our President is not white.

President Obama signed 2009 Children’s Health Insurance Authorization Act, which allows the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) to cover health care for 4 million more children, paid for by a tax increase on tobacco products. But what the GOP remembers is that our President is not white.

All they care about.....is that our President is not white....clear and simple.
