With all of the wide-ranging promises of “hope and change” and fixing the “messes” George W. Bush and the Republicans created for the United States, Barack Obama appealed to many people looking for someone who could fix what has been supposedly broken. People just wanted the pain to go away and Obama pledged to take that pain away [Article - Opinion: So far, Obama's failing miserably].
Eight months into his presidency, Barack Obama has struggled to deliver on his pledges of “hope and change”. His grand proposals and plans for health care, climate change, card check and “stimu-less” have all been stalled or are simply not reaping any results. If Obama cannot move forward with his plans to fundamentally change America, he and his policies will fail. His presidency will be relegated to mediocrity not experienced since the Carter administration or even worse.
