I'm going to give my 2c on this subject.
Obama has inherited what many analysts coined a "CRISIS
", which i'll remind you all was not of his own making. Blame GWB and his predecessors for creating it. But he is the current president and he is attempted to fix it, while John McCain sits back and pulls a David Cameron from the side lines...... bitching and moaning and generally not being "part" of the solution!
There is not a president, king or prime minister that has successfully put an end to the "global" economic crisis all by him/herself!!! That is a fact! And it is only compounded by the fact, that America is the largest consumer in the world.......
What Obama has done and this probably accounts for why he was in the running for the Nobel peace prize. Even though he has not been in office for very long is irrelevant.... He has done more in regards to improving Americas relations with the the rest of the world, than any other president managed in their entire term in office. Obama has single handedly presented the world with an America that is more "likeable" than it has been in the past.
I'm sure you can all appreciate that it is not an easy tight rope for him to walk. On one hand he must ensure the protection of the American people and on the other he must ensure that long standing aggressions against the USA are being resolved. After all, no one wants another 9/11?
Obama is one of the best presidents in the world at the moment!!! Just look around.
He will do more for the United States than any other past president has achieved. Unfortunately the man is working within a system of bureaucracy and this means that things happen slowly, if at all.
On one side you have Democrats and then you have the Republicans.... together they are too busy trying to be king-ding-a-ling and fighting like little children than actually find a long term solution to the economy, climate change, National health and even how many men to send to Iraq!!!! Even though general after general has said, "we do not have enough men on the ground". You can't get much clearer than that!!
I wouldn't want Obama's job!
And so ends the 2c.
If you don't agree with my views.... that's all well and good. But you will respect them, just as I will respect your own views and opinions.
