He had to stop a huge problem and reverse it. I think he has done a great job that would NOT get fixed in a few years. He is reversing it and it is getting better.

Agreed. Bush put a few things on the table as he was exiting his second term, but the very distinct "deer in the headlights" look commonly found on his puss seemed notably more intense as the economy was nose diving around the end of 2008. It was as if he fore saw catching the flack for the near depression era conditions he left the country with would account for a large part of his legacy...

which he absolutely should be remembered for. We were tanking. Obama didn't dilly dally. He displayed the kind of leadership that was needed at that precise moment in our history, and while I am not 100 happy with his job, the idea that the same folks who backed Bush are now saying how much of a "disaster" Obama has been come off INCREDIBLY disingenuous.

To those who say the turn around has been too slow, I'd remind them that the last depression took YEARS to climb out of, and that was really only after we entered WWII and started pumping billions into our war effort. We're not going back to Clinton era prosperity in a matter of months. Heck, we may never see a projected surplus again thanks to W and his selective approach to revenue generation.
