With a controlling faction in Congress committed to making Obama "fail" at every turn, no one could have been very successful in that office.

Domestic policy has been stymied continually by a do nothing Congress.

Foreign policy, however, has been rock solid and much improved over GW's shoot first and we'll sort out the bodies later.

Obama's first mistake was assuming that the opposition would actually work with him.

So, I lay pretty much all of the blame on Congress.

Oh, and name me anyone who was/is qualified to be the President of the USA before they actually hold the office.
