I give up…
I have said quite a few times that Obama is not the president yet – but that falls upon deaf eyes. It really is a case now that people are looking at Obama as the president and that he is calling the shots – he isn’t but…
The challenge that he faces going into office is, quite literally, immense!
Millions of people are now out of work in the US – trillions of dollars are being loaned and there isn’t any transparency as to where or to whom those loans are going to.
The American electorate knew the country was stuffed before last Tuesday – they feel it is even worse now. The US – can you imagine is tanking – just think of how bad it would have got if McCain had been elected.
All that is the downside – the upside is that those who voted for Obama are, in fact, optimistic about the future now that President-Elect Obama is carouselling around his new home.
So far, Obama seems to be meeting the public’s high expectations. Two-thirds of all Americans have a positive view of what he has done since he was elected president, and three-quarters think he will do a good job as president.
How could he do worse some will ask. Not wanting to go too far into the future – but we will only know that in about 2 to 4 years.
