President has accomplished many things

Editor, the Advocate:
In response to the letter about President Obama's accomplishments, here are just a few: 1) passed health care reform; 2) passed the stimulus; 3) passed Wall Street reform; 4) ended the war in Iraq; 5) began drawdown of war in Afghanistan; 6) eliminated Osama bin Laden; 7) turned around the auto industry; 8) recapitalized banks; 9) repealed "Don't ask, Don't tell"; 10) toppled Muammar Gaddafi; 11) reversed Bush torture policies; 12) tightened sanctions in Iran; 13) increased support for veterans; 14) expanded health coverage for children; and 15) kicked banks out of the Federal Student Loan program. The list goes on, and it could have been more if the Republicans and the tea party would quit trying to block everything and get out of the way.
So when ignorant people make stupid remarks like "impeach," they need to quit looking at Fox News and quit listening to people like Michele Bachmann, Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh. When each political party cheers and claps when the other side seems to fail in Congress, no one wins - much less the American people.
When the Republicans continue to block and filibuster every single thing that has the name Obama on it, it's amazing the president got this much done. The people elected need to start doing what's right for America instead of worrying about getting primaried trying to win another election.
Can't we just work together for the good of America?
