I voted for Obama because I believed he had the best chance of fixing the collapse of the financial system.
I enjoyed his speeches but I was doubtful we would see the same person in office. He did not have enough experience and unfortunately (in my opinion), he listened to the wrong people and began to be more of an intellectual, political insider and less of the visionary.
Even with this change, I believe that I made the right decision. President Obama and his team prevented the financial system from collapsing. There's no doubt that there are large problems still and the risk of the collapse coming back is still there.
Now, that the Democrats have lost control of the House and opinion polls are showing people having more doubts about the presidents. Maybe, we will see a change in the president. I for one hope so.
Does he have the confidence to start believing deeply in his old message? Will he start working better with Republicans? Will he get people engaged with his ideas?
There's a chance that part two of his term will be his greatest moment. I hope so.
