    Given the Congressional leadership he's stuck with, he's doing pretty well. Its tough to push through policy when the Speaker and Majority Leader are grade "A" morons.

    I think most Presidents spend year 1 dealing with all the stuff their predecessor left behind. Most of the downturn in the economy started prior to November, Iran was probably building the reactor prior to January, and the Taliban was starting to surge in the closing days of the Bush White House. He's mostly reacting right now, but doing ok. There's definitely room for improvement and I'm hoping we see that as he gets into year 2.

    He's doing what i suspected he would, being a rotten POTUS.

    All his talk of change and transparency went out the window very early in his regime.

    He's too inexperienced and has never held a real job. He should start over.

    Pelosi and Reid are terrible leaders. They can't keep the party in line.

    A majority only counts when you can count on the majority support. Right now Pelosi and Reid are too weak to do that. Its the same reason that folks on the GOP side saw McCain's "Gang of 14" as such a betrayal.

    But you should be enjoying this. No forward progress on Health Care Reform means you don't have to deal with all those things that give Conservatives scary dreams at night.

    He was dealt a bad hand. Anyone elected in 2008 was going to have to deal with a lot of crap paid forward by the last guy in office, just as Bush inherited his share of messes from Clinton, and Clinton from G.H.W. Bush, etc.

    He's doing alright given what he had to face up to at the very start of the term. We'll see where he goes from here.

    BTW, why the need for the snap judgement? We're less than 1/4 of the way into his first of two terms? Surely you can hold out a bit to judge him a success or failure and let some time pass. Isn't that what Bush supporters have asked for when we consider his legacy?
