With respect to two things:

Obama is the first president to achieve the 51 percent mark in two elections since Republican Dwight D. Eisenhower, who did it in 1952 and 1956.

Then there's the golf and the fact that Obama really has restored the cultural Waspiness of the presidency. And:

Obama is the second president since World War II to win re-election with a jobless rate above 6 percent. The other was Republican President Ronald Reagan in 1984.

And that makes Sean Hannity's head explode.
