Every president inherits challenges.

Few have faced so many.

Four years later, our enemies have been brought to justice

Our heroes are coming home.

Assembly lines are humming again.

They'll still challenges to be, children to educate, a middle class to rebuild.

But, the last thing we should do is turn back now.

Those are the words of Morgan Freeman, who narrated the latest Obama campaign ad, "Challenges".

When President Obama was sworn in as the 44th President of the United States in 2009, he inherited an economy that was literally in freefall. With the stroke of his pen, President Obama signed into law the Stimulus bill that literally saved this country from a Second Great Depression.

President Obama ordered Seal Team 6 to take out the leader of Al-Qaeda, Osama Bin Laden, and Seal Team 6 took out Bin Laden.

President Obama brought our troops home from Iraq, and, in 2014, thanks to Obama, our troops will be coming home from Afghanistan.

President Obama, with the stroke of his pen, signed into law the bill that saved two of America's "Big Three" automobile makers, General Motors and Chrysler.

Over the next four years, America will face many more challenges, and I support President Obama's re-election campaign, because Obama is the candidate that I firmly believe will handle the challenges our country faces better.

Morgan Freeman said it best, "The last thing we should do is turn back now."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    was pointing to "meh."  Except housing and construction related businesses.  Housing was artificially propped up to hide the fact that there has been no real economic growth since 2000.  So when Romney says "this is not what recovery looks like," it's true, we haven't seen a real recovery since Bush took office.

    Of course, that's not a case for electing the people who filibustered every attempt to change course and now want to double down on the idiocy.

    It's been a hundred years, isn't it time we stopped blaming Captain Smith for sinking the Titanic?
