    Why WTF Has Obama Done So Far Isn't Helping Obama

    Why 'WTF Has Obama Done So Far.com' Isn't Helping Obama | Cracked.com

    I think this pretty much sums up Obama's biggest flaw is, he is not a very good politician (ie can't make a rainy day seem like sunshine and rainbows).

    He's a know-nothing, arrogant, Alinsky trained agitator. That's his problem.

    And he believed his own PR.

    Thanks to the journOlists he's the President that never should have been.

    This criticism is pretty much spot on. He had the momentum and then lost it.

    He didn't listen to anybody and tried to steer a moderate course resulting in a compromise that everyone hated.

    Part of his problem is that he promised the moon and the stars while he was running. However, it's not entirely his fault that he didn't deliver. He promised a bi-partisan coalition that never happened. He's not entirely to blame for that. Republicans did gather together and vow to stop every single thing he wanted to do, just to make him unpopular. Frankly, Obama has done just fine. He's been level-headed, he hasn't done anything particularly extreme, on either side. He isn't an amazing leader, but he's not bad, either.

    I call a president who stuffs national healthcare down everyone's throats a lousy leader.

    And I support nationalized healthcare.

    Look at Bush Jr. despite being a worse President than his father, he was a FAR better politician. He was able to get nearly all lawmakers behind him. I would argue, politically, GWB is the best president politician wise we have ever had.

    this criticism is insane. the one thing obama does well is sell sunshine and moonbeams.


    the reason what he's done isn't helping him is that it's exactly 'what he's done' that is hurting him.

    whether it's Obamacare, the Stimulus, the Auto nationalization, the huge debt..... people do not like his policies.
