    Obama's personality can be summarized in a joke I heard long before he was famous.

    If he were walking along the shore of a lake and saw a man drowning 20 feet out, he would throw a rope. But if the only rope nearby was 15 feet long, he would keep walking after tossing it, and congratulate himself on having met the man more than halfway.

    Obama is bright, charming, and hard working, but he is absolutely not a leader. So it's really too bad that he has a job that requires leadership above almost everything else.

    What's REALLY depressing is that everyone currently seeking the GOP nomination would be many times worse.

    I did like the lake analogy. That gets a thumbs up right there!

    "A lot" is relative.

    Okay, he's:
    • Made a little progress toward Universal HC, which will benefit the economy to some degree in the long term
    • Added some (but nowhere near enough) jobs to repair infrastructure
    • Been willing to take the gamble to kill bin Laden
    • Staved off an artificial debt crisis by the opposition
    I'd say that's enough at least to pass.
