You saved my friend's son's life by bringing him home from Iraq in your first year in office after he'd been re-uped three times by your incompetent, lying Republican predecessor.

You saved my family's very small business with your stimulus package that created demand for our product your first year in office after we had to fire our full-time employees and close down half our office space thanks to your incompetent, lying Republican predecessor.

Follow me below the fold if you want to see what's really happened to average Americans thanks to a DEMOCRATIC president in the White House:

You saved my friends' under 26-year-old children from having to work and drive and live without health insurance because they couldn't afford any after the lying, cheating, Republican supported health insurance system raised their rates too high.

You saved the U.S. Auto Industry and millions of Americans' jobs despite the non-stop obstruction and obfuscation at the hands of the lying, cheating, easily bribed Republicans in Congress and your incompetent, lying Republican predecessor in the White House left it bankrupt and shutting down.

You put two minority women on a Supreme Court populated with a majority of lying, cheating, corrupt, immoral Republican judges who have ruled against average Americans and for their corporate overlords and will for years to come thanks to your incompetent, lying Republican predecessor in the White House.

You orchestrated the reversal of DADT, giving the LGBT community an epic win, despite the non-stop obstruction, lies and homophobia of lying, cheating, immoral, corrupt Republicans in Congress.

You extended unemployment insurance and Bush Tax Cuts for the Middle Class in order to keep average Americans' heads above the waters created by the greedy, selfish, uncaring, indecent, lying, cheating, corporate-owned Republicans in Congress who wouldn't pass that life-saving public support unless you also agreed to protect their billionaire owners from having to pay any taxes at all.

And now you've protected Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Veterans' benefits and Pell Grants and stopped a total world economic meltdown from the same corrupt, indecent, immoral, greedy, disgusting, fascist, fanatic, uninformed or deliberatly ignorant Republican majority in the House of Representatives.

You sir, are a hero and a champion and stalwart leader who suffers the slings and arrows of open racism, idiocy and corporate control of the media with total aplomb, intelligence and calm power.

Thank you, President Obama, for all you do every day for all of us.

Oh.

And thanks for blowing that f'kr Bin Laden's face off.  Nice work.  Your incompetent, pathetic Republican predecessor couldn't do it and he had 7 years to try.  LOL.

Republicans.  All they want is to cut Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and veterans' benefits and Pell Grants so billionaires don't have to pay any taxes.  Oh, and shoot anybody who disagrees with them or happens to be gay.

Please add anything in the comments to your thanks to this president.  If you have nothing to say but the "clap louder" meme or references to whatever it is this president hasn't accomplished YET, please don't bother.  It's too boring.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
