@QualityJay: Uh... do you see anything like those on the list linked to above? Nope!
My point wasn't "Obama is great", my point is that A) the list is dumb and B) compared to Bush`s "gaffes" they`re practically insignificant.
As for the rest, I agree that Obama hasn`t been perfect, but get your facts straight. SOPA, which was introduced by a Republican (though co-sponsored by a smaller number of Democrats) and has not passed yet. Even if it does pass, Obama may veto it (the media mostly suggests that he will, though the GOP says he won`t).
As for the NDAA for 2012, yeah, that`s a serious F-up on Obama`s part for not vetoing it until sections 1031 & 1032 were removed.
It`s still better than two wars and tanking the economy.
So, I`m no "Obama fanatic", I just think lists like this are dumb.
(Note to original poster: A "gaff" is completely different from a "gaffe".)

HiEV. This is what I can't stand about Obama fanatics. They always say, "look at Bush! Look at Bush!" Meanwhile, we just had the National Defense Authorization Act and the SOPA pass. Our gov. is federalizing banks, auto manufacturing, 2013 will implement devastating environmental legislation, etc etc etc. Yeah, Bush was bad for the country, but Obama is just as bad if not worse. They both work for the same puppeteers.

Well, most of these mistakes look pretty lame. You don't like how he bowls? Really? How the heck is that worth mentioning?
Honestly, none of them compare to G. W. Bush`s biggest mistakes: dropping the ball on terrorism prior to 9/11, invading Iraq, allowing the banks to screw up the economy, signing bills that have left the nation in debt up to its eyeballs, etc...
