he inherited a country going through the shitter and at the very best all he could hope to do was help ease it through as painlessly as possible. which he pretty much is managing as well as anyone else could have.
he would like to have achieved more certainly.
But at the same time, he is tackling some fairly hefty reform. So yeah, maybe too early to say.
not always through fault of his own. Getting anything through the US senate these days is ludicrously difficult. The problem is, is likely to get harder rather than easier from next year, so it could be a sign of problems to come later on.
There’s been a lot of handwringing the past week or so about the decision to send 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan, but he promised to do exactly that on multiple occasions throughout the campaign, so he’s actually keeping a promise rather than breaking it.
Funnily enough, the gay and lesbian community are probably the most vocal group about him not living up to the hype
But really, it’s too early to tell.
It’ll be a lot clearer a year or even six months from now – by then, in theory at least, health care reform will have passed, jobs are projected to be on the increase again (this month was by far the lowest number of losses in a month for two years) and there might be a climate bill, and regulation of the financial industry all completed. If a health care bill resembling the one currently being discussed is passed, that alone will mean he’s passed the most significant piece of domestic law since LBG, which is pretty impressive given the circumstances he came in on. The frustrating thing is to wonder what he could have achieved if, like W, instead of inheriting the worst financial crisis since the depression and a couple of wars to boot, he was elected in 2000 when the US was running a surplus.
Bottom line is, his support is just a percentage point or two below the share he won in the election which mans that he’s being given the benefit of the doubt, which seems fair enough given the shit sandwich he was handed by the previous administration.
