Ah, but you forget that this is the Age of Obama. You're talking about quaint old things like the rule of Law, etc. Next, you'll be talking about that old piece of paper that nobody pays attention to; I think it's called the Constitution. Your thinking is so pre-Obama.
The theme of the president's 2012 re-election campaign is that George W. Bush left such a terrible mess that Barack Obama could hardly be expected to clean it up in four years.

In other words, 43 months of unemployment rates above 8 percent, $5 trillion in new borrowing, $16 trillion in aggregate debt, gas prices of nearly $4 per gallon, a dive in average family income and involvement in two wars were all due to George Bush and simply too difficult for anyone else to overcome. So Obama cannot be judged on his record between 2009 and 2012.
