I'd say he has been in office long enough to do the job. His actual effectiveness remains to be seen. He has however created an effect internationally, and inspired people worldwide. He has instituted policies that are environmentally sound and is pouring stimulus money into infrastructure and services, which create jobs. I even know people whom have recieved stimulus checks, which are always great for the economy, because this is money which goes right back into circulation.
He's engaging in diplomacy with "enemies" of the U.S. which is actually in the American presidential tradition. The U.S. has done so with China and Russia when both were bent on the destruction of the U.S. So now, somehow President Obama's "weakening" the global position of the U.S.?
Many say this as if manufacturing an illegal war without UN sanction, obliterating it's infrastructure and claiming God commanded it hasn't.
All the alarm about him mainly comes from those whose stock in trade is manufacturing monsters so that they and all around them can be incited into a fight in order to create chaos. They then step in to offer this chaos a voice, calling it the will of the patriotic among us and labelling President Obama as a "radical" or a "socialist" or better yet..."muslim."
If diplomacy is radical...then I guess that would apply, because radical in essence just means different.
As far as socialism goes, Obama is no more socialist than many established American institutions, like Social Security, trade and labor unions, medicare and every other program designed to help the working class. This is what socialism came from-the need for the worker to have rights as more than a cog in production apparatus, benefit from their labor and have control where they had none.
To call Obama muslim is...well...just untrue. But, if (for the sake of argument) he were...the problem would be....?
