    The only thing Obama has going for him nowadays is that his name is not Bush; otherwise his Presidency which started with a lot of "hope", to use his word, is an utter disappointment. First, no support for Armenian genocide; second, not even a shred of outrage that one of it's citizens was murdered in cold blood on the Gaza aid ship; third, a potential veto on a PA bid. I guess Justice, Freedom, and whatever other banalized terms are subtended and play second fiddle to national interest. As much as Obama has been a disappointment, the current GOP alternatives are much worse. Americans always seem to be stuck between a rock and a hard place in terms of politicians.
