Obama seems like a nice guy.

I want to like the president.

I’d like to think he’s a nice guy. I know he has charisma. He seems to have some pretty good ideas.

I think, however, that he’s too nice of a guy and not a particularly good politician. I think he may be in over his head and I think, quite frankly, the best thing for this country to do (short of shutting the TV off for fifteen minutes and thinking on purpose) is to elect a different Democratic president in 2012.

He never stood a chance; the U.S. isn’t ready to let racism die, nor are we willing to stop pushing ourselves toward a theocracy. We aren’t ready to think about the common good, lest we get too… Europe-y.

He, like many other Dems, compromises and then wonders why people still don’t like him. It’s a sad state of affairs, but he really does seem sort of clueless.

I’m sure that, in a different universe, Obama is quite popular, all of his policies are going into effect and the whole Alternate States is doing quite well. We are not they and, unfortunately for Obama, we probably won’t be in time for the next campaign season.
