no. not the two toughest years since the Great Depression. (economically, yes)
for me to take you seriously, you have to offer an honest critique of yourself and your work
Obama wants it both ways (a little): we will bring massive change (but it will take some time and there are big challenges so be patient with us). problems in DC are systemic. you can't make sweeping changes with the system close to what it is. you just get the same results eventually (Contract with America eventually sold out, etc)
however, i tend to agree that the economy has been stabilized for a comparatively small price (if his numbers are right. i'm sure every Libertarian has a different story)
such a partisan audience, it's crazy
'is government nimble enough to handle these 21st century crises?' now that is a GREAT question.
