There is more on the list during his eight years -- much more -- but I do not have the time to list the many other humane and good things this President has done for our nation in the face of virulent obstructionist and racist opposition who were dedicated to the ruination of his presidency and said exactly that.
The next great thing will be granting clemency to many jailed for non-violent offenses. It will be the most granted clemency ever. I am pasting the article from the NYT in its entirety below. I wish he had four more years and a Democrat controlled Congress.
Wishing cannot make it so. My fervent prayer is that this nation with the help of millions upon millions of Hispanic voters, voters of color, women, the disabled, the elderly and the intelligent who make up the Democratic and Progressive base, will kick extremist RepuGlican thug racists, corporate bought K Street legislative puppets, tea baggers and corrupt politicians from here to kingdom come OUT.
Republicans, other right wing gun nut extremist fanatics and the extremist religious right are the know nothing anti-science cancer of hate in our nation. They are killing us and they MUST be stopped!
ELECTIONS MATTER. VOTE AND WORK FOR DEMOCRATS WHO CAN WIN! GOD BLESS AMERICA AND GOD BLESS THIS PRESIDENT. BECAUSE OF HIM IT IS FOR ME A HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY INDEED. I HOPE IT IS FOR YOU!
Here is what the President is doing next: Obama Plans Broader Use of Clemency to Free Nonviolent Drug Offenders

We looked at that and thought this really isn’t supplanting the judge.”
