I think it's funny that he's in a Jimmy Carter situation where Congress is the majority party of the President and he can't get anything worked out. History repeats itself.
Promise #505 (from Sargos' link) is the one I think will be the undoing of his second term chances, however. You have to motivate these corporations to start hiring again, small business cannot be ignored. If people see a malaise like during Carter, the opposing parties will merely have to breathe to kick him out of office. People vote their pocketbooks, and if there's nothing in there come Election Day 2012, he's going to be setting a UHaul reservation just like George Bush Sr had to.
psudo: Really? Were you trolling or was that a serious comment?
He hasn`t even been president a whole year. He has already put forth the most sweeping presidential agenda since Roosevelt. He is taking action on Iraq, Afghanistan, health care, climate change, America`s infrastructure, civil rights, and others with a good chunk of reforms coming in the latter years of his administration. He definitely isn`t resting on his laurels but he`s also not Superman and won`t be able to solve all the problems on his plate in an afternoon.

I am serious.
Fine, there hasn't been time. Let's pretend that fully explains things like his delay tactics regarding the 40,000 troops the general of the Afghan front asked for. He was hand-picked by Obama, by the way. Let's ignore all the incomplete promises and only look at the definitive answers.
He's kept 49 promises. 7 broken, 14 compromised, and 14 stalled for a total of 35. Even if you ignore the rest, that's 58% kept - an F in standard classroom grading.
Or look only at the top 25 promises [link]: 2 kept, 1 compromise, 1 broken, 1 stalled. 40%. Even worse than his promises generally.
Even accepting your excuse he's still doing lousy.
