    As the glamour wears off and a long, frustrating summer wears on, Obama is being forced to improvise.
    ...........................Finally, we’re starting to see him sweat.

    President Barack Obama made his personal icy cool the trademark of his campaign, the tenor of his White House and the hallmark of an early run of successes at home and abroad. But as the glamour wears off and a long, frustrating summer wears on, he is being forced to improvise — stooping to respond to political foes and adjusting his tactics and demeanor for the trench warfare of a legislative agenda.

    The root of the change is one that faces every president: Economic and international realities that resist political charm. Iran and North Korea have shown no interest in the president’s outstretched hand. The economy has delivered a double-whammy, with rising unemployment stirring voters’ concerns while sluggish growth deprives the government of tax revenues Obama would like to spend on new programs.
    Health care reform, which once appeared flush with momentum from earlier congressional victories, is now on a slog through no less than five committees, which include Democrats who either aren’t sold on Obama’s expansive vision or can’t figure out how to convince voters to pay for it.

    “This is when it gets harder,” the president told supporters June 30. And so it has. In turn, Obama has adjusted, deviating from the playbook on every front.

    The cool president has turned hot on the stump, stripping to shirtsleeves to lambaste doubters in New Jersey Thursday. He departed from his prepared remarks last week to accept a Republican challenge to take personal ownership of the economy: “That’s fine. Give it to me,” he said.

    Anyway, up your generously pigmented kiester, bambi. We don't respond to "forceful" and "aggressive" because we know it's merely one of your facades meant to hide your fear and lack of confidence in your stupid ideas. You are failing, just as sure as there are elf-like ears on your head.


    His look is Il Duce and some of us have had the opportunity to be educated to the Nazis even though we didn't live then. It was before the schools amended their History books to be PC and back when Citizenship, History and American Gov't had a place in schools. Now we teach amended subjects - all PC. First line of the Curriculum Guide in each lesson is" Be sure to call on female & minority students", no matter who raises their hands. Just ignore the others.

    What's that--he's "stooping to respond to political foes?" "Stooping" you say? And TOTUS seems to be getting a bit testy.

    "adjusting his tactics and demeanor" I'll say anyone who listened to his speech at the NAACP meeting and isn't insulted by his put on 'black accent' is nuts.

    Go back to the homepage and look at that head shot of BO. Take a good look. This is exactly how he feels about us and America. That smirk, his head tilted up and looking down his nose at the great unwashed kneeling at his feet. This is not about health care it is about power and control. We need to bombard our representatives/senators offices over and over and over. This administration is dangerous.
    This guy is a fraud along with his state run media sociadem toadies in the better than you congress.
    America needs to purge these Anti American socialists into the dustbin of history once and for all!
