Yes We Did

Having gone to YouTube to watch Rowan Atkinson's wonderful performance at the opening ceremony of the Olympics, I stayed and browsed through some of my favorites, e.g., The Spanish Inquisition. Among my favorites was a music video, Yes We Can, featuring a 2008 campaign speech by candidate Obama and singing by some of his supporters. The video got me thinking about the accomplishments of the past three and a half years. 

Yes we did: 

  •  End don't ask don't tell 
  • Help save two of the big three auto companies
  • Preserve the jobs of teachers, fire fighters, police officers
  • Move towards health care for all
  • Support movement towards democracy in North African nations
  • Create protections for ourselves and our neighbors in our dealings with financial institutions

  • That's not too shabby.

    Yes we did!
