The right-wingers and war-mongers keep whining about "but obama hasn't achieved anything'...'only 9 months into the office without..".....just promises and not a single accomplishment..... You know what you idiots? A person can live for 8 days without food, 3 days without water, 8 minutes without ai, but not a single second without hope. What obama brought to our global table (in a time of tried and tired political rhetoric and confrontation) was HOPE. Something forgotten by most of our politicians and given up by most of our citizens. THAT'S what was THE BIG DEAL with his message. That, in the dark days of belligerence and political arrogance, there IS a way out. Don't get me wrong, Obama may not be the ONE actually finishing this path, but the fact that he put it on the map for the rest of us (the sane and pragmatists) that is, how do you say, PRICELESS!!! If you still don't get the magnitude of that, then you simply don't get it.
