365 days of hope

Well folks it has been a year since Barack Obama was elected President of the United States. His supporters promised Hope and Change. Anyone out there feeling it? Because from my perspective it is business as usual. How so? Well it seems that despite the fact that the reins of power were given to the Democratic party with control of both houses of Congress in addition to the White House they still cannot get their collective acts together to push through their agenda. While I am thankful for that fact what is even more perplexing is that despite having every available political advantage they are still guessed it, George W. Bush.

MADISON, Wis. (Reuters) - A year after his historic election, President Barack Obama sought to remind Americans on Wednesday the biggest problems he is grappling with -- from the economy to the war in Afghanistan -- are the legacy of his predecessor, George W. Bush.

With his approval ratings down from once-lofty levels and Tuesday's Democratic election losses raising questions about his political clout, Obama held no special ceremony to mark the anniversary of his election as America's first black president.

Whining, blaming and failure. No surprise here. The economy is still in the basement despite them throwing buckets of money at the problem. Soldiers are dying in greater numbers on foreign soil while they debate what to do. They whimper and wring their hands. Three years to go America. Have anyone in mind that can actually lead?
