Obama’s Not-So-Very-Bad Year

No modern president has seen his party lose as many seats in a midterm election as Obama did this year. And yet, no modern president enjoyed as productive a post-election congressional session as Obama just did. There are plenty of areas where his 2008 supporters can and should feel let down. And while the achievements of the lame duck session (and of his first two years as a whole) were significant, he also gambled by kicking the can down the road on some major issues, like funding for the government. But the last two months should give those who would cry “betrayal!” pause. Obama demonstrated in 2010 that he is still committed to doing much of what he set out to do — and that he’s still capable of accomplishing a lot of it.
