How about the day Obama announced he was keeping certain detainees held at Guantanamo indefinitely without charge? That was the day the giddy feeling ended for me. I have great respect for our President and can't tell you how fortunate I feel to have him in place of Bush but I felt betrayed by this decision.

BTW, my resolution to this problem would be to either charge these men or to deport them. We are better off to be a little less safe than to throw away the values that I thought Obama would restore after the last 8 disgraceful years.


Yeah, I know. :-( I went through this with Bill Clinton -- and by "this" I mean learning that the person I was so ecstatic to have elected is not going to do everything the way I want it done. It was a hard lesson to learn, and I was very disappointed on a number of occasions ("Don't ask, don't tell"? Puh-leeze.). I've finally learned to (mostly) accept this reality.


I'm tickled by the Obamas' date night in NYC last night. How fun.


I am still happy with President Obama even though he has done some things that disappoint me as well. I think he's still finding his way in what is an incredibly difficult time for the country.

While visiting family in Phoenix, I was shocked to find that they all hate President Obama with a purple passion and can't wait for the chance to vote him out of office. I couldn't get a coherent reason for this reaction to him, just that they really hate he's in office.
