On the two-year anniversary of President Obama’s inauguration, Organizing for America has sent its supporters a document called, “Promises Kept,” a summary of the legislative record from the first two years of the president’s term.

In an email to the mailing list of OFA, the former grass-roots campaign arm for President Obama’s 2008 campaign, Vice President Biden highlights several key agenda items that the White House checked off its to-do list and asks for support for the next two years.

Biden said the administration’s big accomplishments so far were passing health reform (which he famously called a “big f—ing deal” the day the president signed it into law); financial reform and ending combat operations in Iraq.

Organizing for America put together the six-page document for its mailing list, highlighting the Recovery Act, putting Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan on the bench, the START treaty and repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. It also features quotes touting Obama’s record from Rolling Stone’s Tim Dickinson, Brookings Institution’s William Galston and presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin.

“[I]t is literally proof that the organizing you do on the ground — the conversations you have with your friends and neighbors — is working,” Biden said of the list.

Biden noted that he wouldn’t say the last two years were easy and that “the fights ahead are going to get any easier."

“But I didn't sign up for a cake walk. And I'm pretty sure you didn't either,” he wrote.
