Jobs Summit Worked!

Looks like Obama's job summit worked as unemployment improved more than expected today. Take that naysayers.

Kidding aside, I have been racking my brain trying to think of things to complain about. I keep coming back to the same thing every single time. I agree with what Obama is doing. What is wrong with me? Everybody hates Obama right now.

The left can't stand him for expanding the Afghan war. They feel he is moving too slowly on social issues and has not lived up to his promise of change and hope.

The right hates him because... well, I really don't know why the right hates him so much. He seems determined to compromise with their tiny and diminishing minority, treats them like adults and always brings them in on major policy points and hasn't even picked any partisan fights yet. I saw an 'Impeach Obama' and 'Don't blame me, I voted for McCain' bumper sticker the other day. I can't even wrap my head around why anyone would or could feel that way. I mean we had very good reasons to want to impeach Bush. And you really want the 90 year old guy as President?

Anyway, I still follow politics and events very closely. It just seems like every decision he has made so far, I see the wisdom in. Name the topic, I can name the rational and the pragmatic process in which it is being addressed. The Afghan war? I couldn't agree with more. BTW lefties, apparently you never watched a speech by Candidate Obama. And leave it to the right to come up with the dumbest talking points. 'Deadlines will just cause the Taliban to wait for 3 years'. Um, that would be great! You mean we would have three years to build up Afghan army/police/civilian infrastructure all the while incurring zero casualties? The Taliban would then attack when the Afghan's were united and at their strongest? What's the downside? And why do you think the Taliban would adopt such a stupid tactic? They want to win.

To sum up, good job Obama. Once healthcare is passed, you will have had the best first year as President since FDR. And seeing how the timing of the economy improving and troops being withdrawn will coincide with 2012 (2010 not looking great), looks like my 20's were dominated by stupidity and George Bush while my 30's will be dominated my pragmatism and Barrack Obama.

  1. So basically, you believe the president is doing a great job and you don't understand why most people don't feel the same way...

    Please let us know when you get your get out of the sand.
