Remember the classic film "Driving Miss Daisy" starring Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman. The character Miss Daisy Werthan, a white Jewish lady, who is at first reluctant about allowing the character Hoke Colburn, a African-American gentleman, to chauffer her around publicly in her car. The movie is set in a time in the South before and after Civil Rights. And the two develop a lasting friendship despite the boundaries of color and race.

Many Americans were reluctant to hand Barack Obama the keys to the car in 2008. But we've been through a lot together as a nation and a President since that time.

So, going into his 2nd term, has he earned the trust of "America" to safely chauffer her down the bumpy road she is traveling on? Can we move FORWARD together starting in 2013? Or are we going to take the bus to Route 2016?

He'll do again what he did so adroitly with his supporters after he won in 2008.

Throw them UNDER the bus. The Latinos are already finding that out with his 'Immigration Reform'- he led them to believe it would be a path to citizenship; he's recently clarified that it would be a path to 'Legal Status'.

Who's next for the Greyhound tire pattern?
