...given the enormity of what he inherited, and given what he explicitly promised, it remains simply a fact that Obama has delivered in a way that the unhinged right and purist left have yet to understand or absorb. Their short-term outbursts have missed Obamas long gameand why his reelection remains, in my view, as essential for this countrys future as his original election in 2008.

Obama stinks at politics actually
stinks, the debt-ceiling, couldn’t let Bush tax cuts expire for high earners
but he is interested in his re-election campaign because by being
re-elected he makes his Obamacare and Dodd-Frank CFPB
communist fascist laws very unlikely repealed
Thus he will have “fundamentally tranformed America” just like he
said 5 days from 2008 election.
Just by being re-elected he will have done that.
That’s his long game.
This is an interesting statistic. I wonder how much of the 2.6% was due to a drop in military personnel related to the drawdown in Iraq.
Anyone can outsmart the GOP these days.
It may also include the once-a-decade census. And of course it is a headcount measure, not a size of payroll measure.
He has already accomplished that. America has already been impoverished and saddled with insurmountable debt. There is no viable path out. Our healthcare has been socialized our banks and corporations taken over. The only devastation that Obama has not been successful at is amnesty, and if a Republican is elected president, that too will likely pass.
Sullivan opened himself to critique by real economists.
The left thinks the “narrative” is all that counts. Not reality.
Andrew, “everybody’s crazy but Barry and me” is a particularly poor argument when the “me” in question is, well, you.
