I first thought that question was a no- brainer then I started talking to people that understood he had to fix 8 years of bullshit in 4 years plus the current situation. Even those people I talked to weren’t completely forgiving though. Obama has proven that our country works in 2 year cycles and if you’re willing to wait it out while pointing the finger things will fall your way in tow years. The GOP held up and fought Obama off long enough to play the blame game and with the help of The Tea Party took control of the Senate. Now they’re playing a chess match to do nothing more than keep coming up with a stalemate this year.
People are saying Obama hasn’t done anything so far. Need I remind people the first and last year of Bush jr. Presidency he wasn’t doing shit. Before 9/11 what was Bush doing? Hell the day of 9/11 he was reading to children, Bush was making the rounds like he was MissAmericabefore 9/11. Once all the pro war stuff got old and people really focused on him and his lack of work he was viewed unfavorably before he left office. Obama has been in repair mode since he got in office. I don’t agree that after his year in office he could no longer blame the last administration for the countries woes. I do however agree that the bailout wasn’t the best move and added to those woes. Not because it didn’t work but because it didn’t help Americans. Jobs have been sent overseas and are continuing to do so, companies are making money again but no one is hiring American workers. That by all rights does fall on the President.
There really isn’t much Obama can do in my opinion because I don’t think he’ll play the blame game and if he tried he’d lose the republicans how mastered that game. Just look now, they’ve held the man up to the point he’s only done one thing and that’s health care and that’s being fought tooth and nail. We don’t care about facts so even what facts he does have in corner won’t help. He’s been the president and no matter how well he does in the debates, he’ll still come away the loser in them simply because he hasn’t done anything in four years. He’s proposals in 08 will be his proposals next year. Again it’s not so much his fault it’s our government layout we vote every two years so we haven’t had shit done in four years because of a power struggle. Truthfully I’m all for a third and fourth party jumping in this because are main two suck.
