The President is obviously only part of a team that makes change happen, and in many cases the government overall has only played an enabling role, but what a difference from the Bush years.  What a difference from the Bush years when the Executive branch was actively harming the nation at every turn, robbing the American people blind of both liberty and opportunity, silencing science, disgracing us around the world, and making the world in general unsafe for democracy.  To celebrate the ongoing recovery of our nation from the Republican abyss, I present the Obama administration's record in pictures - a record which, America willing, is only the beginning.

Not every achievement of this administration is suited to visual representation, but here is just the tiniest sliver of those that are - in no particular order:
