I have to keep asking myself would I rather have Obama or Bush? No contest. Obama hasent kept all his promises but what president in the last 50 years has?
What makes me angry is the disingenuousness with which he's criticized - how out of proportion the criticism is. He has been attacked as a communist and a dictator; as illigitimate and foreign; as the mastermind of some sort of subversive plan to topple "our America", and all I see is someone genuinely trying the best he can with what he has been dealt.
Yes---that's kind of what Cycloptichorn pointed out to me already. And I conceded it was a fair point.

Obama Thus Far
"The reviews of Obama's performance have been disappointing. He has seemed uncomfortable in the role of leading other nations, and often seems to suggest there is nothing special about America's role in the world. The global community was puzzled over the pictures of Obama bowing to some of the world's leaders and surprised by his gratuitous criticisms of and apologies for America's foreign policy under the previous administration of George W. Bush. One Middle East authority, Fouad Ajami, pointed out that Obama seems unaware that it is bad form and even a great moral lapse to speak ill of one's own tribe while in the lands of others."
