all presidents, Barack Obama
has enjoyed accomplishments but also made
mistakes. As a presidential historian, however, I have been struck by
claims being put forward by Obama’s many critics and the news media that
he has accomplished little when, in fact, his presidency is easily one
of the most active in history. As such, with all the misinformation
circulating on talk radio, at town hall meetings, and in the blogosphere
about the President, here is a fact-checked list of some of President Obama’s initiatives. At the end are some interesting factoids and misconceptions about the President.
