One year into his first term President Barack Obama is flirting strongly with becoming a “one hit wonder” like former President Jimmy Carter. Unpopular fiscal bailouts of AIG and auto makers General Motors and Chrysler are but a few of the decisions which will haunt him as he seeks to add equally unpopular health and national security proposals to the agenda.
It has become painfully clear that the only thing that can get prompt attention in an Obama administration is uncontrolled spending ultimately at the expense of poor and middle class people. Given the way things are going over-all there will be little difference between the two shortly.
Supporters of Obama have constantly blamed former President Bush for everything but that must all end. There has been plenty of time and opportunity for Obama to be judged on his own merits. Judge him we must if this country is to endure.
