That is a very low bar you set. Compared to Bush the Lesser, Obama is far and away a better President in any measure I can think of.

Increased debt
We are still in what is a more explosive Middle East.
Not even a suggestion on how fix any of the entitlement programs
No improvement in unemployment
The unknown costs for the undefined Obamacare
Expansion of the Patriot Act
No attempts to balance the budget
A budget deficit of well over $1 trillion
No actions, alerts, directions as to solving the soon to be $22 trillion dollar national debt
Still stuttering about immigration (most likely because he has wised up to the fact we dont need another 11 million citizens on top of the 30+ million americans who cant find work)
Falling GDP

In fact, can you list a half dozen things Obama has accomplished? (vacations dont count)
