The Black Experience in America

Obama has to lower expecations.

Sensing that the euphoria has become manic in nature, Barack Obama has planned to lower expectations of his Presidency should he be elected.  There are many people of all races expecting him to practically walk on water and change the world.  The excitement goes beyond pride in the black community that a Black man may be the President of the United States.  There is a hope that somehow everyone’s life will change instantly. 

Article: Barack Planning to lower expectations

Barack is doomed to be considered a failure because he can’t live up to the hyperhype.  Tell me what you think.

  1. I will give my web page address later.

    I think it is mostly that hype that will go away. If any one expect some type of miracle then that is OK. All I hope for, is for him to do the best he can under the circumstances he will face.

    Think about Pres. Carter, who was white and outside the loop was largely looked upon as a failure.

    That being a subjective analyses and relegated to the files of personal opinion which mirrors public opinion. How ever it is nonetheless an opinion. If you are of age (I’m 63) you will remember what was said about opinions, they are like our deification part of the body, everyone has one and most of them stink.

  2. Thanks Bertram, yes opinions are as described. They do however typically indicate some thought but whether any critical analysis occurred well that is still up for grabs.
