Obama's Accomplishments

Mrs Ahab posts on Barack Obama's legislative record. It's quite an eye-opener.

Note that while he he has proposed quite a bit of legislation almost all of it is not yet out of committee. This list also does not his include the two items he mentions most- the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006 and the Cooperative Proliferation Detection, Interdiction Assistance, and Conventional Threat Reduction Act of 2006. These were bills he co-sponsored and both were passed unanimously. What Barack doesn't mention when he talks about the ethics reform bill is that John McCain was one of the co-sponsors.

The actual pieces which have been approved are as follows-

1. To congratulate the Chicago White Sox on winning the 2005 World Series Championship.
2. Recognizing the historical significance of Juneteenth Independence Day and expressing the sense of the Senate that history should be regarded as a means for understanding the past and..
3. Designating July 13, 2006, as `National Summer Learning Day'.
4. Whereas Bishop Gilbert Earl Patterson was born in 1939 to Bishop W.A. and Mrs. Mary Patterson, Sr., in Humboldt, Tennessee;
5. Designating July 12, 2007, as `National Summer Learning Day'.

That's rather a telling record for a would-be president, isn't it?

Pass it around- and make sure to thank Mrs Ahab for the initial work.
