    It's an election year and it seems all the democrats want to discuss is contrived "Dog and Pony Shows". This is a serious election, and Obama's policies are off the table.
    I would like to see the left defend what Obama's accomplishments have been, both the good and the bad.

    The economy was shedding 800,00 jobs per month when he took office. It has created 4.5M private sector jobs in the past 3 years.

    The economy was an annualized 9% of its income when Obama took office. It has since been growing for 12 straight quarters.

    The President stuck to his promise and timeline in Iraq and to his promise (with a delay due to the situation on the ground) in Afghanistan.

    The President ordered the death of OBL. On the other hand, GITMO is still open.

    The President rescinded DADT.

    The President quit defending DOMA and took steps towards recognizing all marriages.

    The President passed the most significant health care reform package since LBJ and significant, if watered-down, financial reform.

    He doesn't offend us. There are things I might not agree with, but most of them consist of standing up to the bullies on the right and not trying to compromise for the first two years of his term.

    Nothing he could do or has done is worse than what the right has done and will do again.

    And the din on the right has been so loud since inauguration day that it's almost impossible to have a discussion on the merits.
