«American president’s performance much better than his critics claim

At the end of January, Barack Obama will be completing a year in office. It has been a disappointing year, not for him, but rather for the masses who cheered him on at public squares nationwide.
Objectively speaking, Obama achieved quite a bit. He is very close to passing in Congress innovative (even if imperfect) social legislation: All US citizens will be required, by law, to acquire health insurance and those who cannot afford it will be subsidized by the government. He also executed a budgetary incentive program at a scope unseen since the 1930s.»
