Obama can't talk about accomplishments, because he has none. Sure, he passed the Stimulus and Obamacare and Dodd Frank, but it is hard to sell any of this as success when it is all hugely unpopular and terrible policy. To most Americans, it doesn't compute.
The stimulus was a pork-laden exercise in rewarding backers of Barack through investment in crony capitalist green-energy pipe dreams and transfer payments to cities and states to help avoid having to reckon with their bloated public union payrolls (big Obama supporters). Because if you vote Barack, you should never have to go back, to a day when government wasn't bleeding the taxpayer dry with exorbitant salaries and pensions for public sector employees -- if there ever was such a time.
So...he didn't talk about the Stimulus, but he did mention his bailout of GM and Chrysler and how they can't make cars fast enough. Yet...surprisingly, saving GM -- or more precisely the UAW, has cost taxpayers more than $25 billion and GM is headed for bankruptcy, yet again. He didn't mention that. But then, why would he?
Obamacare, a multiple thousand page legislation destroying medical care in America, is ever more unpopular by the day. It turns out, you can't keep your insurance provider, even if you like it, and taking $716 billion out of Medicare cannot be portrayed as good for seniors. And...shock of all shocks, premiums will not go down and Obama's dream of transformation will cost taxpayers trillions to implement.
Dodd Frank, another multiple thousand page legislation, has solved nothing, except making it nearly impossible for people to get mortgages and businesses to get financing. He didn't mention Dodd Frank, but he did mention greedy banks. They ruined everything – after Frank, Dodd, ACORN and Obama forced them to hand out mortgages like candy to folks that couldn't afford them – thereby triggering the great mortgage meltdown which caused the great recession.
