I could add a couple of other things Obama's done, or rather, not managed to do well, but I'll refrain. My feelings aren't as strong as this cartoonist's; Obama is, however, living up [or is it down?] to expectations, as far as I'm concerned. Americans want out of Afghanistan, which isn't happening; they want economic recovery, which is still out of reach; they want universal, excellent, and cheap health care [an oxymoron], and don't seem to be as anti-Israel as Obama has been sounding. I sense that the attempt to sound like a combination of Churchill, JFK, and FDR is beginning to wear a bit thin with the electorate. Where's the beef, Barack, and don't forget, the midterm elections are only slightly more than a year away...
