• 2011-09-01 The Leadership of President Obama
US President Obama was elected in 2008 to overwhelming praise, support and hope. But he inherited an economy in crisis. And the post partisan atmosphere he promised in his campaign quickly devolved into politics as usual in Congress. Today we will try to determine which analysis is true. First we will look at his history, then at the specific actions he has taken and finally at how President Obama can regain the image of leadership he had during his 2008 campaign.
