    You expected what? Why is it that everyone thought he was a good communicator in 2008? Did anyone pay attention at all before that point?

    Re: Why I am disappointed in Obama

    None of these are really accurate. Overall I'm pretty satisfied with the job Obama has done. But of the options you listed:

    He promised to get us out of Afganistan
    His Afghanistan policy is certainly something that disappoints me...it's been a total disaster. However, he didn't actually promise that, so I can't vote for this option.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    Yeah but that was going to be a disaster from the start. My former teacher who was a marine back in 2001 foretold it would end badly. He was on the mark 11 years ago. Successful COIN operations in Afghanistan always overlooked the one massive problem: no real economy.

    I can never keep up with the rights attacks on him, they're schizophrenic.
    Welcome to the Mya debate of school. I suggest you don't press it any further. It will end in tears.

He signed an extension of the Patriot Act, was slick about adding provisions in the yearly NDAA legislation which said the military could arrest America citizens and they could be held indefinitely without the rights of trial or habaes corpus, allows drones to fly over American cities (youtube has one that was found over Chicago).

    His blatant disregard for our Constitutional rights should have everyone outraged, but a lot are apathetic or content because they fell it gives them security when that is an illusion.
    I'm not American, but that exactly.

    Re: Why I am disappointed in Obama

    How can any US citizen be dissappointed with a US president

    Let us list the prerequisites and attributes in a US president that the Corpocratic fascist tyranny will allow into the Oval Office.

    1. A US presidential puppet MUST be a pro war, imperial militant that totally ignores international laws and treaties - great for profits
    2. A US presidential puppet MUST act to water down what remains of that great US constitution and bill of rights
    3. A US presidential pupper MUST always ensure that tax payers money is funneled into corporate welfare and enriching the already rich
    4. A US presidential puppet MUST always reduce the taxes for the rich and direct tax payer money away from basic community services
    5. A US presidental pupper MUST always put the interests of the Plotocratic Corpocratic fascist tyranny ahead of the interests of the AMerican people.
    6. A US presidential puppet MUST never feel guity about carrying out his duties as a puppet
    7. A US presidential puppet MUST always lie to protect his puppet masters

    Obama has done very well indeed - continued in the great traditions of cowardly immoral presidential puppets that were permitted to enter the oval office before him

    As far as his penchant for apologizing for America, I sort of get but at the same time understand why it offends Americans. In post 9/11 and the lead up to the invasion of Iraq I did some independent study in efforts to comprehend the strong anti-Americanism in the Middle East. At the time I thought America was the beacon of hope to the world and admired by people the world over. I was utterly shocked at the things I learned that Americans by and large have no idea of but is common knowledge outside of America especially in the Middle East, who's media specializes in defaming the US. Obama is trying to walk a narrow line in building and promoting positive attitudes toward America in the Middle East in the interest of national security in bloodless a way possible while not talking defensive military action off of the table. The casualty of this is people in America who as I was, are ignorant of America's convert activities during the the Cold War period that of commonly known by the man on the street in the Middle East but not in America are offended and think he's throwing America under the bus.

    Re: Why I am disappointed in Obama

    Obama Has A Love Affair going.... sadly it s Not with America .........., America is Not...... TOP Priority, on Obamas list,

    when you have a president that represents , what America is, and what Americans have fought and died to keep and still fighting for,
    Obama, doesn't make America and its people His First and Top priority, America seems to be somewhere At the bottom of His List.
    'that.
    is my main disappointment with obama.
