I agree with you and totally understand what you mean....Pres. Clinton made me very proud as well (not to mention, he was the first Presidential election that I was old enough to vote in, lol) but after the tragedy that was Pres. Bush, I didn't think my faith in the office of the Presidency could be restored...until Barack Obama!!!!

I'm new to this team. I'm glad this team was made. I so love our President and I am so proud of him! I think he has been fearless in facing very difficult issues that others would not take on. He's the only President in my lifetime that I've felt really proud of.

I think he is doing a good job. No president is perfect and we shouldn't expect him to be. But we should give him credit when it is due him. There are some people so filled with hate for him that they can't even acknowledge when he does a good thing. I like the comment I heard on a Jimmy Kimmel show: "Some people are giving Bush credit for killing Osama. it's like opening the pickle jar and having someone else say 'But I loosened it' ".
Yes President Obama is doing a great job. I really like that he moves without giving voice so the the holds World knows his plan. Now if all of the others would jump in and help out we could get this ball moving up and over the down times.

He is doing an awesome job. Look at all the stupidity he has to deal with and he is cool, calm and collected, all the while saving this nation from the repube fiscal disasters, trying to save the environment, and oh yeah, getting Bin Ladin. Dubya was in office for 8 years and couldn't do it. Obama has been in office just over 2 years. Mission Accomplished. To quote my least favorite person in the world, Rush Limbutt: Thank God for Obama! and I am not even religious!
