    Lazily challenged 1/10 of it. And I actually AGREE with you on a couple of the ones you did. Specifically 1 and 3.

    The stimulus wasn't intended to "improve the economy," it was intended to PREVENT a full-blown depression. The only "improvement" was to pull it out of its death spiral. And the idea that there has been "very little economic improvement" since the stimulus is ridiculous. The economy isn't good now, but it's exponentially better than it was in early 2009.

    The intent of the article, at least for me, was not to say that all 50 of those are even legit accomplishments, it was to challenge the notion posted by someone else that Obama had zero accomplishments. That's simply asinine.

    What? Are you suggesting I want someone to s**t and P**s in Barrack Obama's mouth?

    Maybe you were waiting for a gotcha opportunity but this certainly wasn't it.

    Oh please. You, in the other thread, explicitly stated that discussing Palin's comments that prefaced Bashir's outburst was somehow tacitly defending Bashir. Yes, you are a hypocrite.

    A conservative's definition of "low information voter" = "someone who doesn't vote the way I do."

    It's quite a self-serving racket you guys have built for yourselves, believing that everyone who may have voted for Obama doesn't know anything.

    That'd be fair. Obama has had accomplishments.

    Just from my view, they've not really helped the country or not helped the country as much as they could have / should have / were claimed to have / were promised to.

    But to get to that level of discussion would be a back and forth on each of the 50 points, and that would surely derail this thread, which is impolite from my understanding. Hence I really don't agree with your characterization of 'Lazily challenged', as I did indicate no time / space for more than the top 5.

    That isn't a very good argument. Mass acceptance of an issue doesn't mean the masses are right. And that is what your basis is.

    That's not even remotely close to what his "basis" is.

    I doubt I'm wrong, but if he is mentioning Trump in this, he is talking about those that don't feel that Obama is a natural born citizen.

    "Not all who are successful in other venues have a firm grasp on political or historical reality."

    That's the sentence before he mentioned Trump.
