    You voted for Obama because he was in line with your beliefs...

    You voted for Obama because he was in line with your beliefs and...

    1. You are disappointed because he went too far, didn't go far enough, did not fulfill the"No Red State, No Blue State, but the United States"... or some other reason...

    or...

    2. You are not disappointed.

    3. You're of mixed feelings.


    I won't parse the reasons, as there are scores. You can explain them if you like.

    Can't answer, didn't vote for him...but at least this poll seems more objective than most, regarding the poll choices...so kudos.

    Mixed feelings, given the context of our situation he's really not doing all that bad.

    This poll needs more options.....there is a big difference between disappointed because he went too far...and disappointed that he didn't go far enough....just sayin.

    I think President Obama has done things that presidents have been trying to do for decades. Examples, health care reform and student loan reform. At a time of national economic crisis, rancorous partisan politics, two or more foreign wars, I am not only not disappointed, I am delighted and proud to have this man whose life experience is uniquely American as our president. This country has always been fortunate to find a great leader in its times of greatest need and today is no different.

    Hey, I'm a Liberal, so it doesn't matter which Democrat is in office, we libs will find a reason to be dissappointed in him or her; it's our way. You will not find a bigger tent then that of the Donkey Party, which means you will find a lot of disappointment.

    He's essentially the same as Bush. Did you like Bush?

    I voted for Obama for the same reason I will probably vote for him next year, its the same reason a starving man would eat a rat - its better than the alternative.
    So unless a liberal with a credible chance runs against the moderate Obama, he will again get my vote.

    My opinion of him is the same as Bush because he basically endorsed the continuation of most Bush era policies. Bush was not good for America and neither is Obama.

    People won't like my opinion because it's non-partisan but it's the truth. If people can take off their partisan blinders they will see that America is still headed in the same direction now as when Bush was in office.
