So, 2 years in, has Obama been as good, or bad, as you thought he'd be? I thought he'd go after guns and he hasn't. I thought he'd pull out of Iraq and Afghanistan almost immediately, because he said he would, and ruin our troops efforts. I thought he'd refuse to strike any other country, but has hit Pakistan, but not Libya. I knew he wouldn't seal the borders. I knew racial and ethnic tensions would be worsened by the actions of some in his staff (Holder). I didn't think he'd be bold enough to push the green agenda through the EPA, in order to bypass the voters. That was ballsy, but few made a big deal about it. Very heavy handed. I didn't think he'd get healthcare through in the form he wanted, which was single payer. And he didn't. I knew eventually he'd get to DADT and DOMA and did. I knew Holder would be a radical racist leading the DOJ, and he has been just that. I was most concerned about the economy, assuming Obama in charge would simply ruin it and we'd be in a depression. Suprisingly, it's been a stalemate. Credit to Obama or to the American people's work ethic? A bit of both. Of course, the GOP getting the tax cut extension helped. So overall, he has been bad, but not quite as bad as I thought. Partly, in my opinion, because he has either failed in his objectives or didn't feel the political climate was welcome enough for him to attempt his objectives. 2 years left. We shall see.
