4. He got elected so the republicans would have somebody to blame when the shit hit the fan
And we all could see it coming. We knew they would have to point the finger at somebody for all the fuckups of the bush/cheney gang.

What we didn't anticipate (at least I didn't) was that Obama would play the part so well. I thought the guy would fight back and turn the accusations right back on them.

I never expected he would allow himself to be the scapegoat for the bush clusterfuck but he has embraced that role.

That hopey changey thing ain't working out so well for me right now. I'll vote for him in 2012 of course but I'm not real enthusiastic about it. Just like 1996 when I had to hold my nose and vote for Clinton again.
