    Obama needs to judged by his actions and not just by his considerable rhetorical skills.  Remember we are assasinating citizen and non-citizen alike without judicial due process.  We continue to detain captives at Guantanimo from Afganistan and Pakistan indefinately.  We carry on a wiretapping program without benefit of supeona.  We are using drones against "enemies" in several countries with considerable  death of innocents. We have let numerous banksters remain unaccountable for their actions leading to the financial crisis. Obama has four years to demonstate the moral leadership we elected him for and which has so far been absent.

      no president is perfect and they shouldn't be judged against perfection

      the American people judged the President's first term and voted to give him another

      so, don't act like we are all still waiting for him to prove something

      you might be.  good for you.

      Wouldn't you like to be a pepper too?
