My critical critique of Barack Obama

It's the year end, and, Barack Obama took to American airwaves last night via a press conference to talk about his own year and what he plans to do for the remainder of his time in office.  Meanwhile, I took the liberty, of summing up my own critical critique of Obama's time in office as President of the United States.
