As has become clear, there is not a redeeming quality that Obama has as a President. As much as I would have thought it impossible, he is making Jimmy Carter look like a passable president. Just look at what the world press is saying, This is in the United Kingdom:
Barack Obama: The Weakest President in history?.
But they are not the only ones. Obama is viewed as indifferent and aloof in the United States. He has not gone to bat for anything except his friend, the professor at Harvard, during Obama's past two years in office. Everything that has been done, or so-called accomplished, was by Congress, a Democratic one at that. All this happened without any of his help, input, or taking a stand of any kind.
What Obama and his wife have been primarily known for is dressing well, traveling, golfing and eating tones of lobster; that is they have been living the high-life, while ordinary Americans struggle. The reality seems to look like a replay of the Beverly Hillbillies. The Obamas seem to be the personification of the mountain folks who have just won the lottery. The place you see this consistantly is in Chicago and Chicago politics, where winning a public office is akin to winning the lottery. This type of politics encompasses all of Cook County and Northwest Indiana, i.e. East Chicago, Gary, and Hammond. The lottery here is always a public office.
Now the Obama's have one the big lottery and they are acting accordingly. This should not be a surprise. That is Chicago politics.
