What a successful presidency looks like

This is what a successful Presidency looks like:
President Obama Took Office
(January 2009)
Today
7,949The Dow Jones Index17,573
7.8%Unemployment5.8%
-5.4%GDP Growth3.5%
9.8%Deficit GDP %2.8%
37.7Consumer Confidence94.5

The anti-Obama criticism from liberals is dumb and unprincipled, especially from Democrats like Leon Panetta, who stuck the knife in just before the mid-term elections. Of course Beyond Chron has hammered Obama on the left with this and this, oblivious of the political realities he has to deal with. Randy Shaw accuses Obama of "betrayal" on immigration, even though the president obviously had to delay executive action until after the mid-term elections out of deference to the many Democrats who would have been hurt politically if he acted earlier.

Paul Krugman defends Obama in the Rolling Stone, and Frank Rich defends Obama's foreign policy.

The Rolling Stone provides more numbers on the Obama Administration to supplement those above.


Stand with Obama

What about his high-speed rail project?

He just took some bad advice on that dumb project.
