    Thought the inexperienced neighborhood disorganizer would have a rough going but he's far exceeded my wildest expectations. So in other words he's doing a great job, a really really great job.

    Looks great so far.

    We elected Obama to do two things pass healthcare and fix the economy.

    First one: Completed

    Second one: Well on the way

    Looking great for a second term

    Funny, I thought he was elected to pass healthcare reform not just a "healthcare" bill. His insurance industry bailout, written and organized via secretive collusion with the insurance and pharmaceutical industry, is just about the opposite of what his voting base wanted.

    His mandate was to get out of our two ongoing foreign occupations (not only still ongoing, but massively escalating in Afghanistan), pass a public option (fail), restore the rule of law (massive fail), institute progressive taxation (so far, fail), close Guantanamo Bay and work out a legal means of dealing with detainees suspected of terrorism (embarrassing fail), and usher in a new era of transparency and representative government replacing the old order of corporate and lobbyist control over major political decisions (the most ridiculously epic fail of them all).

    I expected him to be a C or C- like Clinton, which would have at least had him among the top tier of modern American presidents. Instead, especially after his blatant and unremitting lies regarding his personal axing of the public option while publicly feigning to support it and reversal on the most fundamental of American laws and due process, he's a big fat F and every bit as bad as Reagan or Bush. Like them, I think you're probably right that he'll have a second term, but that in no way speaks to his quality, competency, or adherence to the Constitution.

    It's what i expected basically. However,his Health Care debacle forces me to vote that he's been worse than expected. He's close to being much worse than expected but not there yet. I guess we'll see.

    as expected. Obama was inexperienced and his team knew he just barely won the primary and only won the general because he was not Bush-lite. Obama has really done what I'd have expected anyone to have done. No profile in courage yet. If he gets this health care thing established and takes the credit/blame come 2010, he will get my respect and vote. I want to see more principles and balls.

    Partly, but he gets the credit for saving the economy, although I would've thought anyone in his office would have done the very same things...protests to the contrary. There were very few options--America;s and Obama's hands were tied. The only other option was to watch the system fall apart.
