***A Brief Intro: This was originally posted on OpEdNewson April 2, 2009. In a few days, 296 comments were posted making it the article with the second most comments this year (of course, some of those comments were responses from me). It also was the second most rated article posted on OpEdNews this year (most rated goes toan article on Alan Graysonposted earlier this year).

There are lines in this article that are very striking because they were written based on instincts and intuition months ago. There was no way of knowing what Obama would do.

Sadly, a lot of what I suggested would happen if people "gave Obama a chance" happened.

I find myself thinking about how to write an article that describes all that happened this year politically but this seems to encompass what happened perfectly. Most Americans stepped aside, gave up their civic duty as citizens, disengaged themselves from vibrant activism they were willing to vociferously and boisterously engage in under Bush, and let Obama steer us forward in a manner that might lead one to believe he was nominated for president by the Regressive Party, not the Democratic Party.

If it weren't for all the excuses being made for Obama's and his administration's actions, I would feel a whole lot better. I think others who suffered under the Bush Regime would too.

The populist anger across America is refreshing. People are angry and getting into it over issues that need to be deliberated over.

For all the problems America faces, its citizens do not have the time to give Obama a chance.
