    Obama: politician vs governing leader | Why I support the man I didn't vote 4.​

    Obama the politician and Obama the governing leader...just the facts ma'am.


    In the primary, I voted for Hillary Clinton over Obama over the issue of Foreign policy experience among a few other minor issues. Same reasoning goes for my voting for McCain over Obama.

    but let's face facts. On many issues, Obama has stepped up to the plate and alienated his base for the good of the country as a whole.

    Now that's leadership!

    Obama is learning on the job, as have most US Presidents, and Obama is learning on the job during a crisis most reasonable and rational people agreed back in 2008, was one of the most troubling times since the Great Depression of the early 20th century.

    I criticized Obama's lack of, or style of, leadership during the health care debate, but let us all be honest: Obama has shown great leadership in trouble times.

    Yeah, go smoke some more crack there bub. Obama hasn't learned anything, he's incapable of learning... his bloated ego won't allow it. He's wrong on nearly EVERYTHING.

    I fail to see how anybody who spends so much time blaming everything that is wrong with their situation on their predecessor can be called a leader. In his short time in office the man has insulted police officers, doctors and bankers (let alone what he's said about republicans) He does not bring people together, he divides them.

    Spot on there... Obama has spent his entire presidency deflecting. Ask the man a question other than ":how's the weather" and he unwravels like a cheap suit.... a cheap empty suit.

    But, when you fall for "style over substance", this is what you get.... every time.
