Barely a year in and he's got the Nobel Peace Prize. The promises he made for peace in the Middle-east are forgotten. His rhetoric to tackle the Palestine problem are lost. His promise to end the war in Afghanistan are met with more troops who will be withdrawn sometime next year. He struts, he poses, he touches, he feels.
He's a Tony Blair with designer wear. He's a sham. He's shallow and impotent. The leader of the free world is an actor from the same theatre.
The world looks on astonished. He had so much potential - but the emperor has clothes.
I think his rap in "the world" is much better than it is at home -- but what's new; this is a common theme in world politics.
As for Tony Blair, come now, you can insult Barack if you want, but that's stoopin' low
trying to stay positive about govt. but did you expect something different?
One thing winning the prize has done for our Prez: As of the day he collected the thing, his Facebook friend count started climbing faster, finally gaining more new friends per day (these past 2 days, anyway) than Sarah Palin.
Now if he can only keep on winning a new prize every week or two, that momentum should hold!
