Dear Sasha Abramsky, I just stumbled on your article analyzing President Obama's love for history and quotes from his memoirs and speeches. To this day I am moved and proud that these hard times and crushing economy have brought forward Barak Obama. It is true that so far the Great Expectations that we, his voters and believers, had for a much faster turnaround of the economy have not been realized. Reading through the latest analyses of renowned economists, a lot of us are starting to realize that with the toughest of opposition from the Republicans, to turn things around is no quick and easy feat. The economy has structural faults that are making it close to impossible to make a fast turnaround. But I believe in him! I still know that his quiet strength and formidable faith in our beloved country and nation will produce the results we would have liked to see now. You are correct in saying that in the long term, his hard work and determination will produce the change and prosperity that millions of us believed that he would bring along. He is fighting an uphill battle against unbelievable tides, and times have not eased up on most of us, but no doubt it will happen! And something else: the Republicans are not going to win this November, they will not be successful in their efforts to thwart the president. We will come out, again, in favor of the least offensive party and help him to continue with his agenda. Your article was brilliant! Thank you !
