Obama has been pretty much a let down for me
He hasnt brought any one back from some of the most expensive wars in history.
Really not true:
Operation Iraqi Freedom ends as last combat soldiers leave Baghdad
He hasnt been too successful at terminating this economic slump as well as he could
What does that mean, exactly? He inherited a really bad situation from Bush, that was getting worse by the minute, and he successfully slowed that down and maybe even turned things around. What would you have done differently?
He is too willing to let the insurance industry sponsored GOPers dismantle the new health care without any fight.
Where's the dismantling? They've won some purely symbolic stuff that doesn't actually begin to dismantle the health care plan.
Hes turning out to be quite a wuss(IMHO)
Wusses don't get the new health care plan passed in the first place. (Among the many other things he has in fact gotten done.)
A strain of political thought that really pisses me off goes something like:
Politician A sucks, so to show Politician A I think he/ she sucks I will vote in Politician B instead. Ha, take that, Politician A.
[Politician B takes office]
Damn, Politician B sucks even worse than Politician A did. Hey look, there's Politician C....
Government is messy and stupid and you can't just waltz in and impose your agenda -- something I was happy about with Bush and am less happy about with Obama (since I actually like Obama's agenda). He's been getting a shitload done in really difficult circumstances.
