Obama at 18 Months

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2010

So it is in that unfair, but revealing light that the growing disappointment with Barack Obama reveals itself. It is not that he has not achieved much, his record is much less empty then many would complain, but that the messianic change in the very nature of American politics that his candidacy promised was never the work of just an election, or a single term in office, but years of hard, and sometimes discouraging work.
