It was a miscalculation of amazing proportion for Democratic strategists to allow themselves (and their candidates) to be bullied from running on President Obama’s record. Al Gore similarly miscued when he would not embrace the accomplishments of President Clinton.
After all, Obama has done nothing but run the stock market into the 17,000 + stratosphere, lower unemployment to levels far below that when he took office, brought Osama Bin Laden to justice, ensure that corporate coffers are bulging with profits, and enroll more than 8 million uninsured or under-insured working Americans into affordable healthcare
Notably, this was accomplished with little Republican cooperation. I consider his performance, all things considered, to be quite good.
Remember, when you see the low 42 percent approval rating of President Obama, the nay-sayers include a significant number of liberals that believe he has not gone far enough to combat the effects of radical conservatism.
