Promises and Compromise

I don't know, but it seems as though this country is on a rollercoaster ride of emotions as of late. Why? Because of the promises which were made during the election year. Those promises that had us riding on high; figuring that Obama was going to be able to fix everything with the wave of a magic wand. Reality has set in that he is NOT the messiah!

Many of us knew this would happen. When you put someone up on a pedestal, eventually they will teeter. President Obama looks a lilttle worse for wear having to fight off all the nigh sayers, protestors, and Republicans who would like more than to see him fail. He's just getting a real taste of politics: and how some individuals or groups will not support you; even if you have a great agenda.

I think what upsets me the most is that people know there is a problem to which the President is trying to fix, but won't stand behind him, or even come up with alternatives...just bitch! The town hall meetings are a joke, and someone's going to eventually do the unspeakable. You already have homeboy totting a weapon: what else do you need to prove those meetings need to be shut down? I know I'm not going to any of them! (LOL)

Do you think President Obama needs to back-pedal on some of the promises he made? Is there a way for him to obtain his objectives, and not sell himself out? Is compromise a sell out? I don't know. What do you think?
