Let's be honest, he's been a below average President so far.
Yeah, pretty much. The split of the republican party has had to have made things a bit more complicated in the political arena. He held his ground on the Libya thing - that was ok. Oh and he killed Osama. After a dose of 'restoring science', he's let the big environmental issues wither on the vine. EPA has been a bit directionless.
I'm not enough of an economist to grade him here except the it's obvious that the 'economic recovery' has been lack-luster at best.
He still could pull off a big win with a strong, viable energy policy.
Health care is a losing issue for any president. But needs to be tackled none-the-less. While the policy isn't the greatest - I hope it's a start. If his public opinion numbers have to be sacrificed to at least get a the ball rolling and if he's managed to get it out of the spotlight and out of the public's short-term memory before the next election, then it's probably a good trade-off.
Getting rid of DOMA and DADT are wins in the social arena, but aren't really good indicators of effectiveness.
However this term winds down, barring any earth-shattering revelations or policy disasters, I'll vote for him again.
Second term presidents usually show more teeth.
