A lot of people have conveniently forgotten in just what a bad state the previous administration left this country, not only in the economy but in the eyes of the rest of the world. Obama has been on the job for not quite six months. Some Republicans love to say, "If Obama is so good, why is the economy still bad?" Be serious, what was he supposed to get done immediately, when the Republicans are trying to block every initiative he unveils?
So here's what you can tell your guy. He has helped to keep the American auto industry running, he has helped to get some irresponsible corporate executives replaced with more responsible leaders, and he has so far markedly improved the status of the US around the world, especially in the middle east, by being not as clueless as his predecessor.
