Too Little Too Late For Obama - Do You Agree?


Obama enjoyed the overwhelming approval of the American people when he was elected president and the nation seemed to turn democratic blue with votes coming from all sectors of the nation's vast political spectrum, and to assist him in his popular resonating call for "real change you can believe in", he was also voted one of the largest democratic majorities in Congress in the nation's history, the American people truly desiring some real change.

Sadly, the luster of his historic election quickly wore off and his "window of opportunity" quickly closed on this new president and congress at the end of that first year of his presidency (2009), as the second year (2010) brings a mid term election and any real change usually has to wait until the ballots are cast and the votes counted. Should the Republicans regain control of Congress, Obama will most likely be stymied in mass for the remainder of his presidency, even as he was effectively stymied by the Republican minority during his first two years, hardly receiving even one or two Republican votes on any of his proposals.

So in his first year (2009) Obama's promise of universal health care for all Americans, just like Congress has, quickly was transformed to only a measely "health care reform" effort, and suddenly, the money just wasn't there to provide all Americans with congress like health coverage, but the "war supplementals" continued unabated and "off budget", borrowed billions more requested by Obama for ongoing wars and occupations in Iraq and Afghanistan, and funds for war quickly approved by a high fever war congress.

Whenever asked about some accountability for the Bush/Cheney years, Obama would comment that "no one is above the law", and Holder would comment the same refrain and promise that the Justice Department would be returned to the American people when Obama takes the oath of office.

However, with nearly forty very serious Articles of Impeachment pending for Bush in the 110th Democratic Congress and two very serious Articles of Impeachment pending for Cheney in the same Congress, not a single impeachment hearing was ever held, and not a single investigation was launched of any potential high crimes and misdemeanors, and the super thermite explosives that were found by scientists in the 9/11 dust have never been investigated to determine who planned and executed the demolition of the World Trade Center Towers..scroll down to "The Exploding Floors of 9-11"..read more


Starting out his presidency with his super democratic majority 111th Congress, Obama has now turned the page forward, not looking backward, as he stated he prefers to do, and that previous all important page is behind him now and he is not going back to take a closer second look at that last page and he really didn't spend any time at all looking back to begin with.

His presidency seemed was all about a bright future for himself, even at the cost of shirking off any mention of past deeds which truly deserved some serious looking into.

NO, it's never too late for the real change that Obama promised.
Not sure.
YES, his
Obama was lying about real change. Nothing he seemed to promise got done.
