From an outsider's perspective - I reckon O'Bama has been an excellent president - despite the mess he inherited.
Interesting days ahead, no doubt.
A columnist in Time
magazine summed up the situation this way: Romney's plan is ridiculous and no-one really knows what Obama's plan is.
From where I stand it looks like Obama inherited a horrible mess and has done an incredibly good job at extracting the country from it in the face of viciously partisan opposition. I would support him (if I was in the US) just for those reasons, but I also prefer most of his social policies.
Both sides kept climate change out of the debate until a few days ago when Sandy forced it on people's attention (see, e.g., http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2012/11/01/1122241/bloomberg-businessweek-its-global-warming-stupid/
) but IMO Romney's policies in this area are absolutely pigheadedly disastrous while Obama's are about as good as any US president could realistically hope to achieve.
God bless America - it needs all the help it can get!!
