With a highly combative presidential campaign behind him, President Barack Obama has had quite a year. In no particular order, NewsOne put together the commander-in-chief’s best moments of 2012!
1. Obama Slow Jams the News
During an unexpected appearance on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” President Obama joined Jimmy Fallon and the Roots to “slow jam the news,” using the opportunity to talk about his education policies for students.
2. Obama Almost Reaches the DREAM
Regardless if the change in policy conveniently took place in an election-year, the Obama Administration announcing that it would stop deporting young illegal immigrants who entered the United States as children when they meet specific requirements was far more helpful in settling the longstanding political strife over immigration, than say, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and her state’s “show me your papers at random” legislation.
3. Obama Backs Gay Marriage
