brohammas said - "Mostly the President is a figurehead, more affective as a symbol than an administrator."
I agree with that.
But the country was pretty effed up when Obama was elected.
In fact, things were so effed up that many people chose to elect a Black guy in a political "Hail Mary" with the hope that the underdog could pull one out at the last minute..
Most people who voted for Obama did so with the hope that an outsider could just press "Refresh" on our political, economic and social landscapes.
Most people assumed that Obama didn't have enough invested in this system to blindly follow it's previous policies.
Most people wanted a sacrificial lamb to redeem our society - not a Judas who is more concerned with his thirty pieces of silver.
