Is “Not Obama” good enough?

I voted for Barak Obama but I have to say I’m not particularly impressed by what he’s done while in office.


As I listen to the press coverage for the Republican nomination race I find myself thinking the major argument of the candidates appears to be: I’m not the current President. I don’t get a whole lot of substance beyond that singular message.


Barack Obama came to the White House by selling a simple dream “Yes we can.” Clearly we need more than a dream to run a country. I just don’t think we’re likely to get any better leadership by getting behind the slogan “I’m not him.”
