36. They spout this number often

The numbers are questionable at best. I think in the end most people will look at Romney and the RW crazies and decide to go with Obama but I sure hope nobody forgets his major cave ins and that he just started talking like he was on the same side as liberals (after he and his staff derided them publicly for 3 years) when it came time to start the re-election campaign. In the end I think Obama's legacy is he came in after the worst Presidency of all time and didn't fight hard enough. He did some good things but mostly he did just enough and let the Republicans roll him on a bunch of stuff. When 2016 comes around we're going to have a hard time making the case that Democrats provide such a dramatic difference because we're likely going to be in control for a little while and Washington Dems/Obama don't seem eager to piss off their masters too much... which is why so many Republican concepts remain perpetually on the table regardless of how anti-Democratic and pro-corporate master they tend to be.
