    "Returning to the accepting embrace of his home state of Illinois"

    That's a little overstated. I am guessing that support for the President in Illinois declines precipitously once leaving the Democratic party's stronghold in Cook County. In fact, Romney won 79 counties in Illinois to Obama's 23 in 2012. Subtract Cook County vote from the 2012 election results & Romney wins Illinois by 100K votes.

    Obama can toot his own horn all he wants but his real legacy is that he presided over the decline of a once great nation in every way a nation can decline: Economic decline, social decline,cultural decline, prosperity decline and international influence decline which he calls "progress". And its STILL all GWB's fault!

    Obama's legacy:

    #1. According to the World Bank, U.S. GDP accounted for 31.8 percent of all global economic activity in 2001. That number dropped to 21.6 percent in 2011. That is not just a decline - that is a free-fall.

    #2. The United States has fallen in the global economic competitiveness rankings compiled by the World Economic Forum for four years in a row.

    #3. According to the Wall Street Journal, of the 40 biggest publicly traded corporate spenders, half of them plan to reduce capital expenditures in coming months.

    #4. Back in 1950, more than 80 percent of all men in the United States had jobs. Today, less than 65 percent of all men in the United States have jobs.

    #5. If you can believe it, approximately one out of every four American workers makes 10 dollars an hour or less.

    #6. Sadly, 60 percent of the jobs lost during the last recession were mid-wage jobs, but 58 percent of the jobs created since then have been low wage jobs.

    #7. Median household income in America has fallen for four consecutive years. Overall, it has declined by over $4000 during that time span.

    Life must be great living in his ideological bubble. I never thought it possible to be so disengaged and detached from reality as this man is.
