Some prominent Republican politicians and right-leaning commentators have been describing President Obama as “a failure.” This charge is leveled at him largely because he hasn’t brought the economy around to where it provides for the creation of private sector jobs. In this regard, by Obama’s standards, he is, if anything, an outstanding success. One can only fail at something he/she is trying to accomplish in the first place. Obama is not a big fan of private enterprise and calling him a failure at job creation is like criticizing a basketball player for not scoring touchdowns.
Do Republicans Have it Wrong?
