    Is Obama's ability to lead severely hampered by all the lies Americans have been told about him?

    Lies have been told of the President being foreign born, Muslim, and a hater of the country he leads.
    Is the campaign to derail this Presidency really more about persuasion than ability?
    if we patiently allowed George Bush 8 years to wreck the economy, why can't we give President Obama at least 4 years of good support?

    The one thing that politicians, or anyone who is in authority, should beware of is the proliferation of lies that can ruin their prospects, and their reputations. If he had sense, Obama would have people strategically placed in the media to counter the false claims, because, once a lie starts to be believed , it acquires a life of it's own, and nothing can shift it out of the perception of the public.
    The only thing about Barack Obama is that he is not averse to telling bare faced lies himself when it suits him; like the lie he told about the aids help to Africa, or how he tried to deflect from his own inepitude regarding handling of the gulf oil spill by putting all the blame on BP.

    It has probably left him guarded and somewhat depressed. The economy is in the tank and all he can do is watch it all sink further. He's an academic, so I'm sure he doesn't believe in all this national security, TSA, FBI, anti-Wikileaks nonsense. But at the same time, he has come to learn that he has no control over these federal agencies under him that are running amok. America voted him into office because we wanted a liberal, not an authoritarian.
