As I was reading the news, I came across an article in the New York Times written by David Brooks. He talks about who President Obama really is, and how both conservatives and liberals have established distorted views of him throughout their respective political parties. Once again, the topic of partisan politics comes into play.
Partisan politics will always exist, because people will always find a way to disagree. Though it sounds cliche, it's true - everyone thinks differently. To legitimately evaluate President Obama would take much research and political/economic understanding. However, to put it simply, he's just another president. As I've said before, I quite agree with President George Bush when he said that one of his biggest regrets of his presidency was having so many goals, but just not having enough power to accomplish all of them. I was recently interviewed by my school newspaper in regards to President Obama's health care reform ideas and his newest push for education reform. All I could say was what I think is the truth. People may not like Obama, and I'm not saying I do. But he is the president of United States, and he thus deserves a certain amount of respect. He is trying to accomplish some good things, like these education reforms, and I think he is overly-ambitious in trying to do everything in his term of presidency. But maybe future presidents can build upon what he's trying to do right now.
But only maybe.
