I thought I detected a glimmer of sanity trying to peek through some of your posts.

You assign rhetoric to me here that I think you have inferred from the larger public discourse.

If intellectual honesty is the order of this thread, and a doubling Dow is indicative of a president’s success, then you must confer that same accolade on Bush as the Dow tanked to 7286 and then rose to 14164 within a 5 year window during his administrations. But what do the fortunes of the 30 Dow companies say about any administration other than how they fare in various economic environments. Personally, I don’t care about the Dow as I hold no stock in any of its component companies, and I don’t gamble.

The more reflective indications of a presidents success are measured in the economy and the well being of the citizens. As long as we’re being intellectual honest here, we need to acknowledge that the GDP grew from just under $10T to just over $14T on Bush’s watch, or 40%. We stood at just over $15T at the end of 2011, or about 6% on the Kenyan’s watch. The economy has not recovered and 8+% (“official”) unemployment has not abated on the Kenyan’s watch, both rendering a failing grade. Bush averaged 5.12% on his watch. The Kenyan has averaged 9.27% unemployment.

When you speak of “ending the war in Iraq” what do you mean? While we have ceased Gen 2 operations, the war rages on, terrorists blow things up, people get killed, and we are no less involved than the day “the war ended”. What day was that, BTW. I must have missed it.

“My ilk”? "Heroes"? For the record, I have been registered independent in my adult life and this will be the 11th presidential election I have voted in. Aside from Dutch, I have not been compelled to vote for a candidate, but rather have been left with no choice but to vote “for” the lesser of evils. Don’t infer that my criticism of the Kenyan is anything but that as I’m probably less impressed with the Republican party over the last 40 years than you are. But the alternative is unacceptable.
