I was flipping through the tv channels last night and came across Larry King with guest Joy Behar. First of all, I can't stand Joy. I think she is loud and obnoxious and her voice just grates on my nerves.
Larry asked her if Americans expectations of Obama were too high and she says yes. First of all, two years ago nobody (outside of IL) knew who this guy was. He is the one during the campaign that bragging about hope and change and a better America. He's the one that said that there would be more jobs (started out at two million jobs and somehow turned into 4 mil) for everyone, and better healthcare for everyone, and he'd close Gitmo, and he'd repeal the Bush tax cuts, and he'd stimulate the economy, and he'd have the whole world being our best friend again.
I'm sorry but those are his expectations!!! He is the one that opened his mouth and tried to promise the world to everyone. Well, now people are just waiting to see if he's going to do what he SAID he was going to do. If anyone has high expectations (I certaintly don't) of this guy it's only b/c he set the damn bar so high!
