Wrong again about Obama

Last week’s letter from Dr. Terdiman leaves me shaking my head in wonderment (“Wrong about Obama”). He says that Obama is “perhaps the worst president in our history.” I look at Obama and recognize some of his accomplishments. (He got a stimulus bill passed that started us out of a severe recession; reinvigorated the U.S. auto industry; took over from Bush when we were losing 800,000 jobs a month and has had about 60 months of steady job increases to a total of over 3 million new jobs, mostly in the private sector; presided over a stock market that was about 7 thousand and is now 18 thousand on the Dow; brought the deficit down from 10 percent of GDP to under 4 percent; has taken steps toward recognizing the threat of global warming; got Osama bin Laden; passed health care reform; ended the war in Iraq, and is drawing down in Afghanistan.) And these accomplishments, I ask myself, rate him the grade of “worst”?

It make no sense to me. Maybe I’m living in an alternate universe than that of Dr. Terdiman.
