I like the man, he's inexperienced? well no-one has presidential experience until they are actually the president.
Perhaps all those that slate him should walk a day in his shoes and see how easy it is. He is a shining example of a wonderful family man, in love with his wife, no sleaze (yet) doing his best in what must be a very difficult time to take over as president.
It seems to me that everyone loves to love the new guy, then knock him right down as soon as they can.

It will be interesting how the mid term elections pan out in America, to guage how the voters feel Obama is doing thus far.

My only answer to you here cesar is that i've run a business for 15 years, doing payroll, and meeting budgets, setting budgets and targets, meeting deadlines, peace keeper, stock control, balancing P&L etc.... I'm very good at what I do however, I couldnt be a president!
Runnning a business is like running a family home in my opinion, if its dirty, clean it, try to prevent it becoming dirty in the first place by daily sweeps etc. If there is money in a purse, then you can spend it on what you need, however when the money runs out, you have to stop spending or make cuts somewhere. You prioritise those budget cutbacks ie, you need food and a roof over your head before you need a new telly.
Running the business is exactly the same, its all about housekeeping. Being a president is similar however the stakes are a gazillion times higher and you are doing it with the eyes of the world upon you, there are detractors waiting for you to make the first mistake, and yet there are others willing you to do well.

As for Obama I think most people over here like him, but almost everyone agrees he never should have received the Nobel peace prize...
My own opinion is that as he is a politician and I`m generally very sceptical to politicians. They are almost all the same: Untrustworthy and narcissistic...
