You said: "successfully dealing with Republican obstruction of the legislative process"....but neglected to mention that a good majority of his 'successes' have been because he used "Executive Orders", effectively BY-PASSING any 'obstruction', Republican AND from within his own party. He also appointed the most controversial person to head up the NLRB knowing full well that that person (Craig Becker) was an ATTORNEY FOR the UNIONS previously and would always come up on that side of the field and also knowing that the Republicans and the Tea Parties had found out prior to that appointment and planned to try to stop that appointment. Obama appointed him during the House recess and again made the Congress irrelevant in the legislative process. He also used an Exective Order to give the EPA sweeping power over any and all existing and future energy expansion that had to do with 'fossil' fuels because those fuels don't match up with the Obama agenda. Although all Presidents have used Executive Orders previously, this particular president has abused that power in order to rack up his 'successes'.
besides proving he was born in the United States, saving Wall Street, the Economy, getting an enormous amount of legislation passed, Health Care, successfully dealing with Republican obstruction of the legislative process, being there the next day for the Alabama border tornadoes, and managing the impossible (killing Osama bin Laden).
The only thing he can't seem to accomplish is getting credit or respect. Or could that have to do with the opposition and the Republican Noise Machine?
Now he's being investigated for being born in Ireland. One of the Black Irish, one assumes.
