All of our expectations were so high when Barack Obama took office 18 months ago. He was going to fix the economy, end the wars in Iraq and Afganistan, give us health care reform, fix the schools, walk on water….
After 8 years of George W. and after the wasted Clinton years, we progressives were ready. So where are we now? This Doonesbury cartoon says its all.
We are like his kids and think he can do anything. Unfortunately, there is the Senate to deal with and the fall elections which still look difficult for the Democrats. I’m hoping they can just hang on to enough seats to keep control and Obama’s agenda has a fighting chance.
