The Daily Quote

"[President] Obama has done a good job so far…. Begin with something that didn't happen: financial collapse and great depression. It's easy to forget, but Obama came into office facing a frightening situation. He assembled in short order an extremely competent economic team and took -- or, in many cases, continued -- the drastic measures needed to stave off disaster. And those measures succeeded…. The other primary responsibility facing a president is to keep the country safe, and there, too, Obama has gotten things mostly right.”
