I feel so bad for him. He has not made half the mistakes Bush made but is facing ten times the hatred. And even after all this time, he has not stooped to the level of his critics. Do you have any idea how much strength that takes. When someone starts cursing you out, your instinctive reaction is to, probably, curse them out or hit them, especially if they’ve been screaming at you 24/7. People have thoroughly disrespected this man but he keeps pushing on despite it.
Now, I like Ed Schultz on MSNBC. Love his show, The ED Show, and I follow him on Twitter but he really annoyed me awhile ago when he criticized Obama for not being in Wisconsin supporting those fighting for worker’s rights. This has stuck with me for quite some time. I understand wholeheartedly how important unions are and how monstrous it is for someone to think it’s okay to toy with worker’s rights but Obama can’t just stop working on set in problems because a new one has emerged and if he did, people would still criticize him.
I’m not saying you should agree with everything Obama has done because I don’t. Obama himself admitted to making mistakes. What I am really scared about is that despite all the work Obama is doing, history is going to write him off as incompetent and Bush will be the savior of our world. I feel bad for Obama because no matter what he does, it is never enough. I would really like to be proven wrong.
