I've been reading the Wall Street Journal a lot lately, and if I understand their opinion page correctly,
- Meh, the S&P is only up 155% since he took office.
- After peaking in 2009 at 10%, the unemployment rate has barely halved to 5.5%
- The budget deficit, 10% of GDP in 2009, was 2.8% of GDP last year. But deficits don't matter. Right now.
- Trying to solve problems without marching the most second-most hated army in the Middle East into the center of the Arab world, means you are probably not trying hard enough.
