President Obama isn't governing the way that would satisfy my policy preferences.
He is not governing the way that I would choose to do things, if I were in his shoes.

And that's probably not a bad thing, since if I WERE in his office, I probably would have plunged us into civil war by now.

At the very least, several dozen Republican members of Congress would have been renditioned to Upper Volta. I by now would have joined Dick Cheney and Aaron Burr in the category of executive branch members who have personally shot someone. The US would have annexed Mexico. And we'd probably be sortieing F-16s for strike missions on Tallahassee.

1. He governs from behind the scenes...
much like Eisenhower did....that's why with Obama there is so much hyperspeculation about things he may do....

2. Good point
Like with Clinton, he is often behind-the-scenes but you can feel confident that he is doing his job.
