You will almost feel sorry for the next person who follows President Obama in office
This man has 28 things in the air at once. He walked into the greatest economic slide since the depression, Two hot wars, an environmental melt down.. literally..a hostile populace cutting its teeth on hell hound radio


He is out there 24/7 .. I do not know how he does it. But can you imagine what the next woman or man in that office will be held to. The standard is set so high now.

5. Seven years from now, people will be more than a little nervous
about having President Obama leave. They will be very used to the hands on approach he has made.

8. I think...
I think that he'll carefully groom his replacement, he'll help us to have the best choice as the next Democratic president.

I have to think he'll take this particular responsibility as seriously as any other on his agenda now.

That's how he rolls...

a 'refreshing change' from whatever the President is doing now.

:eyes:

But I agree. Any sane person will know what a crazy amount of work is being done by this administration.

9. You know Clinton was a hard worker too.. and Carter.. and Roosevelt..
etc etc etc..


Come to think of it.. Democrats are touted for their work.. and Republicans for being the guy you want at a beer bust.

Hmmmmmm no wonder they so callously screw everything up!!

6. Challenges aside, his is an act that practically no one can follow.
His charm fills up the room, or the stadium, and his smile is infectious.

His calm demeanor takes control of even the most contentious gatherings.

Even his detractors cannot help but listen and pay attention to him.

And he talks to us like adults, not like children or underlings or "his subjects".

He is the president of my lifetime.

13. Do you know what I am enjoying in a perverse way... how far into the ether
the right fringe pulls itself. They hate the President and Democrats in general so much, and it is so visceral, that their irrational thought patterns are there for everyone to see. They can't hide it behind verbiage anymore.

16. He has 28 plates spinning on sticks!
And can change his socks at the same time.

I hope this is a sign that we'll never have a Dumbya in the WH again! Please!
