    Despite all the constant Liberal Press hype about Barack Obama being the "Hope & Change Messiah",i've actually grown quite unimpressed with him. I see no astounding or miraculous leadership coming from their Messiah. This latest Egypt uprising issue has shown just how lost and inept he appears to be. I don't know anyone who really knows where his Administration stands on that issue. He's been all over the board on that one for sure. Then there was the BP Disaster. I saw no leadership at all on that calamity either. And lets not even get into his numerous Economic blunders. He seems shockingly lost on anything relating to Economic matters.

    When all is said and done,i think America has been gypped. The Liberal Press and Democrats definitely sold us a Lemon with this guy. He just hasn't delivered on their Messiah thing. However,it's not like trying to get your money back after being scammed. You can never get your vote back. People need to learn that slogans & hype don't = Leadership. This current President proves that.

    The situation in Egypt is difficult though, what do you do? support Mubarak and go against the will of the people, or back the uprising and turn on an ally for decades? its a lose/lose situation for anyone.

    lol! Not gonna argue with you on that. I'm not calling him a liar though. He just isn't anything close to what he was hyped to be. I just haven't seen any real leadership from him. Definitely way over-rated in my opinion.

    He's a flash-in-the pan sweet talking orator. That's it.

    He didn't hype him self as anything but what he was/is...a politician and union organizer. The "hype" came from everyone else. Blame oprah, she was major hype.

    "Hope and change" was a brilliant campaign slogan. Lets hope things change.

    Nobody ever said he was a "Messiah". What I actually find disappointing is that right wingers expected Obama to just go right in and heal the world. Change takes time. Many years, decisions, and battles. Not just 2.

    Obama has done a much better job than Bush did in his 2 years over Bushs 8 in my opinion. And just him becoming president makes him damn well a "messiah" in my eyes. So leave the man alone.

    On the other side, ALL presidents are to some extent political puppets. The president isnt the one who really controls things going right, hes just the person who takes the blame when something goes wrong.
