WTF Has Obama Done So Far?
Often the question is asked, "What the fuck has Obama done so far?". For those unimpressed people, we made this site.

This project was posted to MetaFilter by anastasiav on November 1, 2010: But what has he done for me lately?

One bit of feedback... don't show the same thing twice during a session. This happened quite a few times to me, and gives the impression that you're picking from a pretty small list, therefore that there really aren't too many achievements to mention.

Added that in. Thanks!

I'd also like an undo/back button for when my clicker finger gets twitchy and I skip one on accident.

Also, a pony.

I'd love to see each quote get a meh-positive and meh-negative button option, and (in the background) the ones people seem to like get shoved to the front of the queue for newcomers. But that's just me.

The button needs to stay where it is at the bottom of the screen, and not move about depending on the length of the text above it.

This is great. Someone posted it to MeFi without knowing it was Mefi's Own.

Great job - I saw it on Twitter earlier and just knew it would be a Mefi Project!

I just assumed it had come from my Projects post until I checked back here now. That's great.

This is awesome, and I'm sending it to all the obnoxious bleeding-red Repubs on my f-list. Totally heartening info.

This is gaining a lot of traction, as I'm sure you've seen from visitor logs. I've got several non-Mefite friends posting it to their Facebook profiles.

Same here.

That's a rousing fucking success, right there. Well done, the jam.

I saw this everywhere this week & am pleased to learn that it's from one of MeFi's own. Nice work.

Saw this yesterday - like everyone else, I'm glad to hear it came from a MeFi mind!

N'thing sweetkid, jessamyn, etc.

When I saw it on many of my facebook friends' walls, I was even more excited knowing it was from a mefite.

I'm watching you on Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell right now! We flipped to the channel accidentally and I told my boyfriend "He's from MeFi!" You're doing an excellent job. Congrats!

Hey, look, a counterpoint!

Just joining in the congrats for a) creating something so great and b) getting the recognition you deserve!

My friend M___ is responsible for the counterpoint site, and, frankly, I like his better, though yours is fine.

Cause there isn't enough negativity in the world already. And Obama should've regenerated unicorns and made every rainbow a double rainbows at this point. I think your friend missed the point of the original site completely -- Obama's done a lot of stuff.

No offense, but that site makes a lot of valid criticisms, and from a non-conservative/Tea Party point of view, too. Dissent is not negativity in this case; it's balance.

Like so many of my countrymen, I have shit for memory. Thanks for the reminders! Keep 'em comin'.
