At least this President has a backbone and is standing up for the issues that he believes in right or wrong. He's also one of the few President's who actually is doing the very things he said he would when he was elected. Believe it or not it would be pretty sad if the President made all of his decisions based off of the recent polls. Last time I checked most Americans are pretty uninformed on politics and they aren't privy to all the information that the President has if they are.
It was difficult to commit to responding to your message, ilovelaw. Ultimately, it came down to this:
1: Dozens have probably read your post and thought some variation of either, "It's great hohw someone is saying just what I would!" or, "How much energy will be required to research and respond to all the unsubstantiated claims in this post?"
2: I guess that no one wants to waste their time as badly as I.First, campaign promises.http://www.failureisimpossible.com/needtoknow/campaignslogans.htm
According to wikipedia, his 2004 promises included:

* Promoting flexible schedules to make companies family friendly
* More funding for local and community colleges
2000 ... Seriously, how does one begin? I hope it's enough to state that, at the very best, he is insincere.Belief
Is belief important when representing a diverse citizenry? And just on a personal level, how much audacity is required to make unequivocal statements on topics you don't have familiarity with? (Who else do you consider "the few"? Reagan, Lincoln and G.W.?)Polls
Yeah, um ... Boy.
I guess the perspective most of my friends and I hod is that any who holds a publicly-elected (or corporately-appointed) office is unambiguously married to implementing a 'political' mission. Whether or not the current occupant of the White House responds with great immediacy to meaningless corporate media polls is actually irrelevant
, as her/his advisers have determined that the strategies they are enacting are the very best methods with which to accomplish as much manipulation as possible. To believe boy georgie is not any different -- or innovative -- in this is realm is ... oh, yeah. Your last point.
