I listened to Obama’s first press conference last night, and I was taken aback. Why? Well, after eight years of a man who could barely string a coherent sentence together in desperate attempts to explain his imperialistic view of the world, we now have a president who can string together whole paragraphs that actually make sense.
While I do think sometimes Obama took a tad too long to respond, I imagine it is because he actually has a thought process going on in his mind – something Bush sorely lacked. I bet Obama’s ability to address press questions with ease and directness irritates the Republicans who are so intent on deep sixing his plans for our recovery.
After all, Republicans are backed into a corner. They no longer control anything, let alone their futures. If they continue to oppose Obama, they run the risk of losing even more seats in 2010 – especially if Obama’s stimulus plan salvages this nation from eight years of an imperial presidency intent only on restructuring the Middle East rather than paying attention to his own constituency.
