Well, maybe if you had to live in the U.S. you might not think he is such a "great guy". His approval rating drops on a daily basis while he plays golf and vacations at the taxpayer's expense. He has done nothing but ruin this country and will continue to do so if he is re-elected in 2012. As for my opinion of him "now", it's the same as when he was running for president. I didn't like him then, I don't like him now, and I won't like him in the future.
