I find it disingenuous at best when GOP presidential candidates claim "Obama's presidency is a failed presidency." What we have is a failed Congress!
Considering President Obama inherited: 1) an economy on the verge of a depression, 2) automotive, financial and banking industries about to collapse, 3) a housing market in free fall, 4) two ongoing wars, 5) a sinking global economy and 6) a hostile, obstructive opposition party, he has done a remarkable job. His policies reversed the economy's nose dive, saved the financial and banking industries, saved the automotive industry thereby saving 1 million jobs, created new jobs in each of the last 25 months, ended the war in Iraq, severely weakened al-Qaida and found and eliminated Osama bin Laden to name just a few of his successes. Think how much more could have been done if Congress worked with the president instead of against him.
