From both the right and the left? I keep hearing that he is turning into another Jimmy Carter-all talk and no substance. Granted, I was only two or three when Jimmy Carter was in office (so my memory is a little vague) but 'd like to say, give the guy a chance, right?! I think President Obama inherited the biggest debacle of a first year office that any president has seen in a very long time and he is slowly chipping away at the things he can change. Politics as usual is very hard to break through in Washington and change does not happen overnight. We are on the brink of the largest and potentially the most comprehensive attempt at health care reform this county has seen in years and all anybody wants to do is complain that he's not done enough in his first year as president. Your thoughts?
