I like to write a remark on Obama's performance to the (U. S.) American people because I think he has done very well! (What isn't completed by this man? And who else can correct much of the lunacy of USA but him, giving an ear to Michael Moore? Hell, people, the Republicans almost puke only by mentioning poverty, injustice and welfare programs!)
Let me start:
Health Care Reform - Successful - Checked!
Guantanemo - Unsuccessful* - Checked (red cross mark)! Comment: While Obama has pushed hard on this issue, the Senate has chopped his leadership in this regard by refusing to grant the money needed to complete the shutdown (of the Guantanemo)! Therefore, for Obama himself, he gets Successful - Checked for personal engagement, even though his political attempt of persuasion is unsuccessful!
Ending the Iraq War - Successful - Checked! It must be noted that 10 000 crew still remain there and that additional 10 000 troops are called for, also while under legal immunity, but under, I guess, "military code" of behaviour, some military justice code for sanctioning idiot military personnel, i.e., the military police officers (of USA)!
Energy Independence - Successful* - Checked! Comment: While Obama has limited success on this issue, he has been quite fast to react to the BP oil-spill (Event Horizon platform, Mexican Gulf, deep sea drilling). But this said, he's also been fast in making it happen again, for the Oil Industry to pick up speed fast again, with improved environmental safety standards in place! So I give it "Successful because we've witnessed top notch leadership in time of crisis and the process followed through!
He is also the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize and not many U. S. American presidents have achieved this while in office, since the start of awarding them, 1900 CE!
