Obama's accomplishment?

I was just reading through a long list of Obama's accomplishments in an e-mail--someone must have taken them off a White House web site, so I just picked one to check--increase in military housing, which led me to the new GI bill. And here's what I found at the Military.com website:

"In July of 2008 the Post-9/11 GI Bill was signed into law, creating a new robust education benefits program rivaling the WWII Era GI Bill of Rights. The new Post 9/11 GI Bill, which goes into effect on August 1, 2009, will provide education benefits for servicemembers who have served on active duty for 90 or more days since Sept. 10, 2001. These benefits are tiered based on the number of days served on active duty, creating a benefit package that gives current and previously activated National Guard and Reserve members the same benefits as active duty servicemembers."

So yes, it went into effect under Obama, but it was signed into law under Bush, and knowing how long these things take, who knows how long it was in the hopper.

Murray sez:
The liberal game plan has been if its bad the credit goes to Bush, if it's good they take the credit and if it's bad but there's no doubt they did it...they don't talk about it. ( Obamacare & Stimulus)
