Obama's accomplishmentsThe Salt Lake City Tribune endorsement of Obama had a good, brief statement of his accomplishments as President (Tribune endorsement: Too Many Mitts - Obama has earned another term 10/19/2012):
In the first months of his presidency, Obama acted decisively to stimulate the economy. His leadership was essential to passage of the badly needed American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Though Republicans criticize the stimulus for failing to create jobs, it clearly helped stop the hemorrhaging of public sector jobs. The Utah Legislature used hundreds of millions in stimulus funds to plug holes in the state’s budget.The Benghazi incident was one repercussions of our intervention in Libya, which I've always thought was a bad idea.
And that could be only the beginning of an unfortunately involvement in post-Qadaffi Libya, as Stephen Walt warns in Arm, train, fail (repeat as necessary) Foreign Policy 10/16/2012.
