Change I Still Believe In

Andrew Sullivan and a Dish reader look at Obama's record:

If you'd told me in January 2009 that the banks would pay us back the entire bailout and then some, that the auto companies would actually turn around with government help and be a major engine of recovery, that there would be continuous job growth since 2009, however insufficient, after the worst demand collapse since the 1930s, that bin Laden would be dead, Egypt transitioning to democracy, al Qaeda all but decimated as a global threat, and civil rights for gays expanding more rapidly than at any time in history ... well I would be expecting a triumphant re-election campaign.

And that's without mentioning the DADT repeal.

All that considered, the misconceptions with which this President is viewed is one of the greatest ironies of our time. It proves to me that people in this country would rather choose the land of make-believe over reality every day of the week and twice on Sundays.
