Herring in a Fur Coat -lionsoul -
I think he was ok... Largely ineffective... but not really his fault (he was blocked from doing just about anything by the GOP controlled congress).
I think history will look on him well for helping to lead us to recovery (even if the Treasury Secretary and Fed head really deserve most of the credit)...
People forget... but we could have just as easily gone down the trap of another great depression if we stuck to orthodoxy in our thinking (i.e. let the banks fail and insurance companies fail).
I think his foreign policy was a mess for the most part. Left Iraq too early (led to ISIS). Went along with taking out Gadaffi (Libya). Didn't stand by his red line in Syria.
I would also minus for Holder and Fast & Furious, continued warrantless surveillance, and not closing Guantanamo which was a campaign promises.
Plus for at least attempting to fix healthcare, even though it was mostly in vain but it was better than doing nothing, and considering the opposition from Republicans it's a surprise he's got anything at all accomplished.
Shitting on your own dinner plate is an accomplishment.....doesn't mean it's good....
