That's not what the rest of the world observed -- they observed the shit sandwich he was given on Day One of his Presidency, and the bumpy ride that progressed as some things Obama achieved made sense, other things struggled and didn't pan out, and still some others we have yet to see results on. That's what the Democrats and liberals were selling, and that's why they won.
This was a direct result of the prominence conservative propaganda has had within the GOP and its supporters. It has given liberals and the Democratic party an information advantage that conservatives have literally given away.
The good thing about Obama's re-election is that the president who inherits Obama's mess is Obama.
"After voters re-elected an administration that added five trillion dollars to the nationís debt, left 23 million Americans unemployed, surrendered Iraq to Americaís enemy Iran, and enabled the Muslim Brotherhood to gain control of the largest country in the Middle East, the one lesson Republicans should agree on is that elections are driven by emotions, not reason." - David Horowitz
