The reason why is because the current economic malaise that the US is in, happened in the economic meltdown a few months before Obama was elected.
To expect him to have rectified that mess in four years is unreasonable.
Unfortunately, he hasn't been able to regulate their banking system. That may eventually happen under an Obama administration. That will never, ever happen under a Romney administration.
