What has Obama done Wrong during his Presidency, thus far?

please dont give me ridiculous answers, like "he's a Socialist Muslim who was born in Kenya."

here are some things he has done Right during his Presidency:

Passed Health Care Reform against staggering odds

Passed finance reform

Passed small business assistance bill

Forged an Arms Reduction agreement with Russia

Reversed restrictions on stem cell research

Directed military leaders to end war in Iraq

Worked to overturn Ledbetter vs. Goodyear

Increased, for the first time in more than a decade, the fuel economy standards for Model Year 2011 for cars and trucks so they will get better mileage

Appointed an assistant to the president for science and technology policy

Created a foreclosure prevention fund for homeowners

Expanded loan programs for small businesses

Extended and indexed the 2007 Alternative Minimum Tax patch

Expanded eligibility for State Children’s Health Insurance Fund (SCHIP)

Update:

these are some of the things that AshK says that Obama has done WRONG:

8) Cut prescription drug cost for medicare recipients by 50%

9) Provided $12.2 Billion in new funding for Individuals With Disabilities Education Act

10) Extended Benefits to same-sex partners of federal employees

11) Appointed more openly gay officials than any other president in US history

12)The American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009: a $789 billion economic stimulus plan

13) Created more private sector jobs in 2010 than during entire Bush years

14) Voluntary disclosure of White House visitors for the first time in US history

15) Appointed first Latina to the US Supreme Court

if you really think those things are wrong, you are living in the wrong country

    ya,ya,ya Glad those things are all helping people in your area. Here in florida we are still dealing with the effects of Hurricanes and oil spills, lost jobs, and low pay. Foreclosures are at a all time high. Banks did nothing with all the money to help the little guys. Sad. But glad Obama is working for you!

    He needs to sweat, fight, and give 'em hell like Harry Truman.

    After that, he needs to get the globalism genie back in the bottle so american jobs come home again- no small task.
