Let's see:

He passed health care
He killed Bin Laden
We're out of Iraq
He staved off an economic calamity
He saved GM
He DIDN'T go to war with Lybia, and yet Quaddafi is finally gone

What else could have been accomplished if there was an actual functioning Congress?

Maybe it's more accurate to say Republican obstructionism was greatly underestimated.

Of course they were. He was looked at like he was going to part the seas and bring all of Congress and Washington DC to this Kumbaya moment.

Nobody could live up to the Hope/Change message he was selling. It got him elected though.

It was detractors of Obama who elevated him to messiah status - Democrats were just excited to have a candidate who had good ideas and could communicate them.

It was the media more than anyone that did it to him. Just like they do with sports stars and anything to try to get ratings.

Funny how I don't remember him proposing 8.3% unemployment, spending $6 trillion, cutting $700 billion in medicare, and letting Iran have a nuke.

He's great at communicating...until he's off the teleprompter.
