  •  Funding the CFPB through the Fed, (0+ / 0-)

    not Congress.  Adding Pell Grant funding to every budget negotiation.  Building manufacturing in this country via small business funding.  Increasing our exports by negotiating trade agreements while overseas.  Strengthening the EPA.  Raising mileage standards.  Hooking TARP loans to CEO pay.  No he didn't do all those things alone, but he sure doesn't get much credit for moving really progressive changes in governance, or for being the first President to actually get a Health Care bill passed, or for getting a chunk of money from BP, while EXXON keeps stonewalling the victims of the Valdez.

    It's about hero worship, though, so I won't add any more items.  I need to go now and practice being more cynical and more fearful.

    I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.
