Some people complain about Obama because he hasn't fixed the economy.
Some people complain about him because he hasn't kept every single one of his election pledges.
People dislike the man for a variety of reasons.
I think he's amazing.
Because he is pro-Equal Rights.
This journal is for nothing more than to say how happy I am that, finally, a president of the United States has boldly stepped forward and declared his support for same-sex marriages. He could have easily avoided this issue until after the election race was over, but he made the decision to be up-front and honest in advance. I respect that in a politician so very, very much.
So thank you, Obama. I sincerely hope people listen to you, and learn what it truly means to treat your fellow man as "equal".

Nah Obama is pretty great ^^
Honestly, Obama never had a chance. People's expectations of him were unreasonably high.... during elections they were calling him the new Messiah! It was crazy.
I think he's doing great with what he was handed, as well I am extremely happy with his support of equal rights.
On the Obama-care note: Canada has been rocking Medicare for quite some time, and we seem to be doing just fine with it.
And yeah, we've had the same problem in the UK. Our previous governments left the country with a lot of problems, and people are raging that the new powers have not fixed them.
It takes more than 2 years to fix a near decade of problems!!
Exactly. Two things can fix a country. Money and Time.
The spending Obama has done upsets a lot of people, but they can't comprehend the benfits that will come in 15-20 years time.
On another note, our education and media in Canada tends to focus more on American politics.
This leaves something to be desired about other countries current positions (and even our own).
Mind giving me the Reader's Digest version of some of the problems your country is currently dealing with?
Doesn't have to be extensive, just some keywords I could go look up.
Here, check this out: [link]
The Queen's Speech is an event held by the Queen, in which she outlines what her government is planning to work on for the next year. It gives a good idea of what the current issues are that the UK is working on.
(And of course I pick out the weird stuff that isn't overly pressing)
Am I understanding this correctly? Are you going to have to be 67 to claim your pension? I know it won't effect you for a long time...but that seems so old :S
Awww I'm really glad your adoption policies are getting looked at. Actually there are lots of potential benefits in your Family/Children Bill. I hope we jump on that bandwagon at some point
I also have a private pension through my job, which I pay into out of my salary, and can (in theory) claim whenever I wish. Generally, it's best to wait until you're 50 or 60 before you claim your private pension.
Plus, he has made the economy better.
I mean, it's not necessarily the case that we should support presidents solely on sexual views, but it does help dramatically. After all, we are a 'free' country. XP
Love this journal.
