People have too much expectation for this one person. He is president not emperor. Obama is a good guy with good intention but he can't wave his magic wand and fix all the ills of the U. S. The thing that made this country great was individual initiative and self reliance. The beauty of democracy is that we all share the power rather than give it to one person. Those who think Obama was the wrong choice, too bad, he is our president and its time to get to work. (Takes a bow after his long rambling motivational speech)
Well I agree with ~FerricPlushy that the middle-class, being a concern, should have proper attention directed towards it. Job training would definitely be helpful. Also, there is that hurdle with businesses not making money, and therefore cutting back in labor expenses which is counter-productive to what we're trying to do here. There has to be a balance truck and it won't happen unless congress stops the dick-measuring contests.
Obama didn't bring his change along for this election. The House is still Republican and the Senate is Democratic, so congress will continue to be at a standstill. Obama can't really do much with that said, although it doesn't really matter because he won't do anything with the powers he does have. He's all bark but no bite.
