he has faced and inherited probably THE toughest problems, at a time when ppl are focusing on his 'birth status' instead of the real issues. i think he's done a great job considering all the obstacles (Republicans included) he's had to overcome. i'm an independent voter, so am not bashing republicans - but Obama has said time and again that the issues are of math, or the economy, and NOT politics. still many republicans said from day one that their goal was to oust him from office. so unfair, and also racist imho. btw i'm a single, white, christian, southern woman!
