Operations Management. Obama Has Now Fulfilled His 4 Big Promises. The conservative view of President Obama has straddled two difficult-to-reconcile portraits.

Obama Has Now Fulfilled His 4 Big Promises

One indicts him as a “Reagan of the left,” fundamentally (and, in their view, disastrously) altering the shape of the state. The other casts him as a hapless mediocrity, a Jimmy Carter redux. At the moment, the latter view is more in evidence — just in the last week, columns have appeared with headlines like “Is It Too Late for Obama to Rescue His Legacy?”

And “The Failed Presidency of Barack Obama.” On January 20, 2009, when Obama delivered his inaugural address as president, he outlined his coming domestic agenda in two sentences summarizing the challenges he identified: “Homes have been lost, jobs shed, businesses shuttered.

It could take weeks to clean up 1 million gallons of saltwater that leaked from a North Dakota pipeline over the weekend.

Cleanup of North Dakota pipeline spill may take weeks

The saltwater, a byproduct of oil production, spilled into a bay leading to a lake used by a Native American reservation in the heart of the state's booming oil patch, according to company and tribal officials. From oil to radioactive waste to saltwater, spills and even rail accidents involving trains carrying oil from North Dakota's Bakken field have become increasingly common since the state's energy industry began expanding rapidly.
