33. There certainly is a lot of Obama bashing around here...

About the kind of things that were mentioned in the link in the OP.

Folks around here don't seem to understand the limitations placed on the executive branch when congress is controlled by the opposition party.

The thing that President Obama has done that has most impressed me, is that he was able to maintain his dignity in the face of overwhelming opposition.

As much respect as I have for Jimmy Carter, if he could have stayed as cool and collected, he would have been reelected in 1980. Carter looked worn out, and it was obvious that 2012 was supposed to be a repeat of that election in the republican playbook.

Overall Obama has done an excellent job given the mess that Dubya left for him to clean up.

People don't seem to understand that it takes a while to break the government, and it takes a while to fix it. When the republicans took over in 2010, I thought democrats were done for, but that doesn't appear to be the case. In fact, it looks more like the opposite.
