not living up to promises

Reader comment on item: Decoding the Obama Doctrine
in response to reader comment: Nuclear, anyone?

Submitted by Mohammed Waza Khiddif Id'ullah (Australia), Apr 19, 2015 at 06:07

"He was freely elected by the American people in 2008, and they confirmed their choice in 2012.........You don't seem to have much faith that America will reject "Obama with a facelift" (i.e. Alinsky devotee Hillary Clinton) in 2016, and I agree. The latest polls show Clinton beating or competitive with all the Republican hopefuls.."

A sad indictment on the collective intelligence of Americans or perhaps just an indictment on their naivete and gullibility for allowing themselves to get hoodwinked by a smoothtalking street hustler.- twice! Maybe the masses are too preoccupied with 'bread and circuses' and the complexities of 21st century life to care. Obama promised change - but a rational person would have expected the change to be positive. And certainly not given him a second chance at the last elections.
