Sure, our economy has stayed in the toilet and even the magic words from the administration celebrating the upturn hasn't actually created a significant upturn. (Wow!)
But "fixing the mess" that is supposedly due to conservative politics, was just one of 300+ items on Obama's agenda.
So it's important to remember that Obama was mostly hired because his name and face would cause every knee to bow and every tongue confess across the world. (The Europe Union swooned and genuflected.) He was going to transform foreign policy with identity politics. After all, he wasn't entirely raised as an American.
Who could have predicted that we were heading back to the days of Carter?
Enter Romney. Romney and foreign policy? Well, our unbiased media buzzed with British tweets about "Mitt the twit" after he dared to comment on their Olympics debacle as a former organizer of the Olympics. Why if Mitt were elected, he might give the Queen of England an iPod with the best of Mitt's speeches. Wait, sorry, I'm confused... that already happened, but it was Obama(!) that already did that. Remember that story going viral? No?
