-Operation fast and furious happened under his watch; moves border patrol from southern border to Afghanistan to help them defend their borders.
-Bailed out GM largely for political reasons over his claims of economic reasons (UAW was a huge contributor to his campaign), meanwhile he takes credit for their "success" (reports show volt costs tax payers 250k
