A question every Democrat will refuse to answer. Why? Because
it confirms why everything is worse since Obama took office.

Iraq seems better
Libya better
Tunisia better
Syria getting there
Heck the whole Middle East seems to be moving in the right direction.

American relations with other countries better
American standing and respect better

Europe is worse, but not are dealings with them.
Pakistan worse.
Afghanistan - can't tell.
Iran - same old same old

Overall, be it luck or be it skill his foreign policy has been successful.
The economy reached a low or unemployment reached a high about 8 months in and has not gotten worse. My biggest complaint then as well as now is that the original stimulus should have been about twice the size - this from a deficit hawk --> Always been my number 1 issue when voting, but extraordinary times

What is the answer.
He ran the Law Review in some way
He ran his community organizing.
And I don't think that is his only leadership experience.
Running a law class counts to some extent too.
Are any of these equivalent of being governor? No, imo. But who is to say who had the most "leadership" experience? Seems like Palin ran more as a mother than a governor, imo. And one could say that Obama ran more as a Professor than a Senator.

Iraq, Libya, Tunisia, Syria better! Take off your rosé colored glasses, stop taking everything for granted passed on by the Liberal Media. Only if you are a radical supporting Muslim is things getting better in the Middle East.

The stimulus was given to the wrong people and groups, the economy is still in the doldrums.

He was a Community Agitator, not organizer. Overseeing the "Law Review", title only, others did all the work and thinking. I'd love to ask any "students" of his what they truly thought of his "teaching".

Seriously? Please tell me this satire, 'cause you couldn't be more wrong. The only way you could come to these conclusions is if you get all your news from MSNBC. American relations are better? C'mon. the whole freakin' world is laughing at us. Only 6,000 show up for the BO's speech in Germany. Why? Because he's a joke and now the whole world knows it.
Sarah Palin was the first to recognize the problem: By participating in President Obama's signature education initiative, the Common Core Standards, Alaska would lose control over its own curriculum.

On May 31, 2009, then-Gov. Palin announced Alaska would adopt a "watch and wait" attitude:

"If this initiative produces useful results, Alaska will remain free to incorporate them," Gov. Palin said, adding that "high expectations are not always created by new, mandated federal standards written on paper. They are created in the home, the community and the classroom."

Texas Gov. Rick Perry, to his credit, was the next to recognize a...
