RALEIGH— When Mr. Obama took office he did indeed inherit a mess. He also promised to fix the mess and create about 7 million new jobs in his first term. He has not done so. His response to this fact is that all his efforts have been tempered by Mr. Bush and his Republicans. OK then. I tend to disagree, but let us grant Mr. Obama that premise. In so granting that premise I cannot help but ask, if after four years in office, 2 with absolute filibuster-proof control of the Legislative branch, all efforts lead by Mr. Obama were thwarted by a man not in power and a party in the minority for the majority of the time, why should we as Americans view Mr. Obama as a good leader worthy of re-election?
