President Barack Obama had done the best possible job, considering the mess this country was in on January 2009.

I am not saying I understand or agree with all his decisions. I do know now we are still the leaders in democracy and freedom, still one of the top producers and economic providers in the world.

Even though the economy has been slow coming around, progress has been made. Thirty-five straight months of adding jobs after 2009, insuring 30 million people who didn't have insurance, saving the auto industry for our current and future benefit. Osama bin Laden is gone.

Don't forget the voter, women rights, immigration resolvement possibility and same-sex rights, even though different views are expressed by some. Gay Americans deserve the same protection as all of us.

We are still standing, and hopefully common sense and common cause will again, as in the past, prevail.

Remember leaders are not successful unless the team is dedicated.

- Joseph Jimenez, Chesterton
