Put out the inferno that was the US economy and started to rebuild.
Created more private sector jobs in one year than were created over the entire bush administration.
Killed this piece of shit.
Aided a revolution against this piece of shit which lead to the formation of a new democracy in a few months, at the cost of a billion dollars and zero american lives lost, vs his predecessor’s “illegal/war profiteering/10+ year/multi-trillion dollar/hundreds of thousands of civillian casualties/thousands of US soldiers dead and wounded and our reputation around the world destroyed to boot” model of spreading democracy.
Prevented the collapse of the US auto industry, saving millions of jobs. – the auto industry is around 7% of the economy (not counting the support industries, steel refineries, mining and so on), so think double the unemployment we have now if he had “let detroit go bankrupt” (to quote the title of an article written by mitt romney).
Brought military law out of the dark ages.
Made it illegal for the first time in US history to pay women less for the same work (allowing women to successfully sue in cases of pervasive wage discrimination).
Finally did something about the cost of healthcare doubling and still rapidly rising under our “perfect” free market system (which was also making the deficit burst at the seams).
