As I said before, this financial crisis will either make him a great President, or break him as President. He even said once to be “rather a really good one-term president than a mediocre two-term president.” see here. And here.
As it seems, he will be neither both. Even when Geithner will be ousted this year, it won’t help his re-election. This recession would not have help any current administration. Especially that lobbyists and special interest groups sit in the White House. He talked of an lack of trust, where he is the current centerpiece of it. He campaigned for closing the revolving door of the lobby and Wall Street. He campaigned for regulation and reform.
And nothing has been done. It all got worse, mounting debt, dollar decline, taxpayer bailout, too big to fail, health care bill, and the loss of the Massachusetts seat (just to name some of many more). He is wrong to blame the senate, the house or politicians with the R or D after their name.
Keep your front lawn tidy before lamenting about others. Especially when you said you will keep your lawn tidy during the election.
All broken promises [as usual] we believed. Campaign rhetoric. The American people thought that this ‘time it is different’ (another campaign rhetoric), that this time politics of the people for the people would overcome the crisis. But how wrong they are - there are bigger forces behind the curtain. And the chambers where politicians discuss reform, regulation, and overhaul, have lots of curtains. (See here, here, here, and here).
