The bar has been set so low for Obama that he can't help but come out looking like a success. Just look at how the media 'celebrates' a 7.8% unemployment rate, and how they ignore the fact that it would be over 10% if Obama had the same size workforce that he inherited. And the debt? Even though he once claimed that increasing the national debt made his predecessor 'unpatriotic', he now wants to pump up the debt with reckless abandon. One gets the feeling that when Obama is finally done, nearly everyone will be disappointed with the results, yet many will feel compelled to celebrate his presidency as some kind of triumph. That's socialism, folks. Expect less.
