Former Secretary of State Colin Powell during a recent interview on Bloomberg TV’s “Political Capital” said that President Obama has so far done “reasonably well” in his second term.

Powell’s claim is based on improvements made in the U.S. economy (the stock market has experienced incredible surges in the past few months and unemployment has come down a bit):

Of course, many believe that the controversy surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi and the recent scandals involving the Internal Revenue Services’ targeting of conservative groups and the Department of Justice spying on the Associated Press and Fox News would signal that things are not going well for President Obama in his second term.

But, hey, the Dow is surging. So at least there’s that.
