The number of Obama supporters seems inversely related to his time in office. Many wonder what happened to "The One We Are Waiting For."
Obama assumed office in difficult economic times. After a couple of years of excuses -- which included "the problems were worse than we knew" and the generic, all-purpose "it's Bush's fault" -- Obama now owns the original problems and new ones of his own doing. An incomplete report card on his "accomplishments" would include the following:

I agree with the author, except the last sentence:
“Carter is the exception because his lock on “worst President ever” is about to be broken by the current occupant.”
Nope. There are 444 days that will forever make Jimmy Carter the worst President in US History.
If we can survive the next year and a half of the excesses of Obamunism, it may be that Obama’s greatest legacy will be as the catalyst that stopped the socio-economic pendlum from its 80 year swing to the left.
His over-the-top liberaism may (hopefully, will) stop the headlong rush into liberal insanity and turn us back from government by Personality Cult to a nation of laws and renewed respect for the constitution.
We can see by the daily headlines it won’t be easy to change direction from a leftist culture of moochers and takers back to a nation of builders and producers. But the other alternative is to lose the Republic and end up just another Third World socialist pissoir.
