you’ve been reading this site with any degree of regularity in the last year you probably have already figured out that I am just a tad disappointed with the performance of President Obama thus far. Twenty-three days past the halfway point of his first term finds the man with a mixed record. He called his autobiography “The Audacity of Hope”. During the campaign of 2008, he spoke of change we can believe in. Many of us were hoping for radical change. We didn’t get it – or at least, we haven’t gotten it yet. I am tempted to believe that for purely expedient political reasons, Barack Obama is saving his best routines for act two. Maybe I’m kidding myself. Maybe not. We shall see what we shall see.
