Obama is not the person making decisions for our country. He has neither the experience nor background nor historical understanding to do so. Having said that, he was raised by a far-left mother and is a socialist in his heart, believing that the world is unfair and only government can fix this problem.
The true leaders of the US are Axelrod, Plouffe, and Messina (with others behind the scenes that I doubt we know about). These are the people telling Obama every word to say - they are populating the telepromter. The assembled the psychologists, computer geeks and ground warfare troops for the last election. Their results were for the record books.
