Has Obama made the economy better or worse?

Refuses to tackle budget/debt problems; continues to borrow and spend; not business/ oil producing friendly.

Check this out, wrote a few good articles on this very subject. Unbiased, in fact. As much as he has annoyed me, I've kept my cool.
(Look to the right-hand side, you'll see my Obama essay tab) I'd like to get some feedback on it.=D
Here's a partial:
Obama for America used the Internet to disseminate information, to engage in political interaction on social networking web sites, to link these web sites to the wed sites of the Obama campaign, to alert supporters of activities in their locale, to provide counter-arguments to damaging rumors circulating over the Internet, to feed the mainstream media, to feed debates in the blogosphere, to establish a constant, personalized rapport with millions of supporters, and to provide an easy, accountable method for individual donations to support the campaign. Building on its core supporters' youth, education, and relative familiarity with the Internet, the Obama campaign demonstrated the extraordinary political potential of the Internet when transformed from a traditional billboard into an interactive medium geared toward stimulating political participation. The Internet provided a most useful platform to mobilize those yearning for change, and those who believed in Obama's potential to deliver change.
In essence, Obama's "success was predicated on its capacity to incorporate new political actors in large numbers and stimulate their active participation." According to Castells, this method was a "key feature of insurgent politics." Amongst the many Obama tactics used for campaigning was the "voter mobilization" strategy. Obama's strategy was brilliant; he had first created a site called " My.Barack.Obama.com , which had about 15 million members." Secondly, Obama's "Vote for Change" was "a 50-state registration drive." Thirdly, Obama had organized the "Obama Organizing Fellows" which featured "unpaid fellowships to train college students in mobilization tactics on behalf of the campaign." Finally, Obama's "Centralized Funding Technology" was a campaign strategy that "attracted upward of 1.5 million individual donors, more than any other campaign in history."
(Needs a lot of work, critiques are welcome!)
