Seriously, on the right-left axis this guy is right about where Reagan/Bush I were.
His foreign policy accomplishments as far as the war on terrorism have been exemplary when compared to Bush II and Clinton
He hasn't done any stupid stunts like flying onto a carrier to annouce "Mission Accomplished"
He has deported more illegal aliens than Bush II and has specifically concentrated on the ones that count (criminals)
Is it really all about healthcare? That doens't ring true to me. Remember all the Tea Party "No Govt Hands in my Medicare" signs? The older right wind voters who seem the most opposed to Obama love their own entitlements Medicare and Social Security. So I just don't see why Medicare Light for all US citizens is such a big deal.
The economy hasn't been great but we've had job growth every single month once the initial job loss rush from the initial collapse occured
There haven't been any actual tax increases yet (have there been minor ones that I've missed?). Even the Bush "temporary" cuts are still in place
Troop levels are down in the middle east and the Libyan War was fought without ground troop involvement. Iran is a threat, but not requiring immediate action just yet (plus we all know we'll just give the Israeli's the green light when the time comes) -- Syria has no oil, so there's no real reason to put troops on the ground there - we could supply air support if there's a national will to do so I suppose
The stock market is about 50% higher than on Bush II's last day, so US companies and our 1%ers are doing even better now then back then
So, really - why all the hatred?
