Many feel outright depression on the perception of an ineffective President Obama. I must admit that at times during the Stimulus debate, the Healthcare Reform Debate, the Bush Tax Cuts Extension Debate, and the Debt Ceiling debate many times I wished he had displayed more public angst with the obstructionists that were those in the Republican Party. I decided however to give the President the benefit of the doubt. I surmised that behind the scenes much was likely going on that we weren’t privy to.
After doing my radio show today and taking my two young co-hosts to lunch I continued to endure their dissent on the President’s accomplishments but mostly on the things they believed he failed at. Granted much of their concerns are warranted in the abstract, their belief that the President was capable of doing those things is more idealistic than they are willing to believe.
