Dear Vir: Saw your comment here on Obama and agree fully, but would like your reasons. My own are:
1. Man's simply not a natural politician. Distant, professorial, only capable of the poetic speeches that won him 2008.
2. No interest in the hurly-burly of politics to get things done: the opposite, say, of Lyndon Johnson, who was constantly "working" Senators and Congressmen from all sides to push his agenda.
3. Status quoist on many things he promised to "change" and worse on some: war, civil liberties, government transparency...
4. At present, with two full years left, seems almost to have retired, making no effective interventions at all.
