Each week, I do a piece called “Moment’s of Reflections” This week’s “moment of reflection,” is the 2008 Presidential Election.  Barack Obama, then junior United States Senator from Illinois, announced his candidacy for the presidency of the United States in Springfield, Illinois, on February 10, 2007.  On August 27, 2008, he was declared nominee of the Democratic Party for the 2008 presidential election. He was the first African American in history to run on a major party ticket. On November 4, 2008, projections indicated that Obama won the election, making him the President-elect and the first African American elected President of the United States.  Here we are again 2 years later…. , approaching another November election:  What has the President delivered to his constituents… in just under 2 years:
  • Small Business Bill:  Extension of Successful SBA Recovery Loan Provisions —Immediately Supporting Loans to Over 1,400 Small Businesses: With funds provided in the bill, SBA will begin funding new Recovery loans within a few days of the President’s signature, starting with the more than 1,400 businesses – with loans totaling more than $730 million – that are waiting in the Recovery Loan Queue. In total, the extension of these provisions provides the capacity to support $14 billion in loans to small businesses.  The SBA Recovery loan provisions have already supported $30 billion in lending to over 70,000 small business.   He delivered on that
  • Health care Reform:  After years of failed attempts by a host of Democratic presidents and after a full  year of bickering and partisan debate,  President Obama signed legislation on March 23, 2010, This  landmark bill signed by Mr. Obama will provide coverage to an estimated 30 million people who currently lack it.
  • Sotomayor nomination. On May 26, 2009, Obama nominated Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court to replace the retiring Justice David Souter. She was confirmed by the Senate on August 6, 2009, and sworn in August 8, making her the first Hispanic justice, and only the third woman, on the court.
  • Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. The first bill President Obama signed into law, on January 29, 2009, was the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which expands the rights of workers to sue employers over wage discrimination claims
Also this week on Morning Joe, a MSNBC show, host Joe Scarborough was floored by McConnell’s open admission that his single most important goal is to defeat Obama. “Mitch McConnell said that?!? … He admitted that on the record?!? That is embarrassing,” he said. “Can I just say for the record – that is pathetic.” An interesting article on ThinkProgress.org  http://thinkprogress.org/2010/10/25/mcconnell-obama-one-term/  covers the issue in great detail.
