<<Face it, he's a two bit community organizer showing his great 'skills' of entertaining athletes, but totally lost in the real world of governing or leadership. >>

Let's deal with reality, tele. Obama is an enormously talented politician, and a very appealing guy personally.

He certainly came into office woefully short of the experience he needed to govern effectively, and the country has paid a price for that.

Personally, I'd be delighted to have Obama as President if he were a conservative and an "R."

But since he is the opposite, I'm concerned about how much more damage he will do as a Dem. He did quite a lot of damage during his first term.

Will he solve real problems like the deficit and foreign policy issues? Or will he again focus on throwing money at problems and pandering to the Dem base? I'm expecting more damage than solutions, but I'd be glad to be surprised.
