    “- The economy recovering after eight years of Republican disaster.”
    .
    The econmy is the wealkest in more than 40 years with growth well below normal at 2% or less, like much of Europe. That is indicative of the economy treading water and not expanding.
    .
    “- Job loss of 700,000 per month at the end of Republican administration reversed to jobs gain.”
    .
    The employment rate is the worst in US history since before WW 2. It currently stands at about 55% or, a real unemployment rate of about 45%. The jobs added per month are less than population growth and the job loss rate is still very close to growth. That is a stagnant employment outlook.
    Worse, Obamacare, among other regulartory trainwrecks of this administration have seen most of the jobs added being low wage ones that are part time.
    .
    ‘- Stock market doubling."
    .
    Hurray for the rich who can invest in it! They are doing well in a liquid market where they can move their money easily to avoid regulartory surprises from Mr. “I have a pen…”
    .
    “- General Motors saved and doing well.”
    .
    You do know the government lost over a billion dollars on that “bailout” don’t you? GM stock is still more than 50% below the IPO value when the Obama administration bailed them out.
    The Chevy Volt, Obama’s pet GM project is a massive hemorrage of red ink. GM is limping along in a poor economy.
    .
    “- Expanding petroleum industry to greater self-sufficiency.”
    .
    Almost all petroleum and natural gas production expansion of the last 5 years has been done on PRIVATE land. The Obama administration has been nothing but obstructionist to that industry. They have taken approxmately triple the time of previous administrations to issue new permits for drilling, have issued far fewer, and have all but shut down new off shore production.
    In that last industry it will take the US decades to recover from this administration’s obstructionism.
    .
    “- Two disastrous and expensive wars shut down and no new ones started.”
    .
    Afghanistan is still going. Instead, Obama created huge new social welfare debt that will only grow and never end, like Obamacare. That is how his administration has more than doubled the US debt in 5 years.

    ’.- Badly needed health care reforms implemented where other presidents tried and failed."
    .
    More like made bad health care reforms that have failed to a cost of billions of dollars, doubling the number of uninsured (up from about 26 million to 47 million now) in one of the most ill-considered and unthought out pieces of legislation ever passed by Congress and approved by a President.
    .
    “- Successfully restarting the search for Bin Laden after Bush gave up.”
    .
    The search never stopped. But, once Bin Laden was found it took Obama more than a year of dithering to finally decide to actually try and get him and then more because he needed a campaign success for re-election than anything.
    His claims that al-Queida has been crushed have proven totally wrong and now we are seeing that his whole foreign policy is a disasterous ruin.
    .
    That is this administration: An unmitigated disaster.

    @Enoki

    You’re right, things could always be better. But compared to the sinking ship of 2008, this administration is an unmitigated success.
    .
    “……..You do know the government lost over a billion dollars on that “bailout” don’t you?…..”
    .
    A billion dollars is the cost of a half week of the military in Afghanistan.
