Yay Obama! - Unbeliever's Land
...The continuing chronicles...
Yay Obama!
There's not much time to post these days -- work stress continues to climb (not stress over whether or not I HAVE a job -- thank god -- just stress over whether or not my coworkers and I will be able to do what MUST be done, given our tight deadlines)...

But I feel I've got to shout out to the world about ONE thing that's bugging me.

Obama's been in office, what, one week.

And during that week, not a SINGLE DAY has passed without him making GREAT STRIDES at undoing the damage of the last eight years.

He has, frankly, far surpassed every reasonable expectation of him.

And yet many liberals -- chief among them, Ted Rall -- have been blasting him mercilessly, because he hasn't done more.

Yes, OF COURSE Obama's not perfect.  OF COURSE he should do more, push harder, and so forth.

But give the man a break!  He's not KING.  Democrats (unlike Republicans) are still bound by the rule of law.  Bush had (nearly) limitless power, because he knew the Media and the fearful Dems would never stand up to him.  Obama has no such advantage.  And *STILL* he is striking down Bush's policies at an impressive pace!

Just give the man the chance to actually succeed.  He's already got the entire Right Wing Noise Machine working tirelessly against him, fighting to take him down at any cost.  He doesn't need his supposed friends tearing him down, as well.

That's it.  Back to work...
