Much hope has been invested in Barack Obama's ability to strike a new course for the US following eight years of Bush administration unpopularity. Yet many in the US and abroad are impatient with the pace of progress under the Obama administration. The president made the rounds on five news talkshows on Sunday as he pressed his policies and vision, preparing for what is likely to be a difficult week.

We need a president, not a semi-pro talk show guest...
After you have seen the shuck and jive act a few times, you get it. There is no there there, it’s all lies. EU people are new to the act I would guess.
Like all tin-pot two bit dictator wanna bees, all hat, no cattle.
Wow...that’s the smallest piece of toilet paper i’ve ever seen.
It is eight months of one act plays, isn’t it ?
Yes, you can sure tell from this column that the Euroleftists are disappointed in the “zero.”
Laughed at this libtard in the comments section:
“Just think, we could be lampooning Bush and calling him a “monkey” again. Us liberals are happier with a Republican President. We can all behave like sociopaths and everyone has a jolly old laugh.”
And if we called this marxist punk a monkey we’d be called racist extremists.
What? I thought he was omnimpotent or something like that...
Someone needs to tell Obama the Emmys do not have a category for most appearances on Sunday talk shows.
Who would have thought that a hyped up teleprompter reader with no executive experience would have been an ineffectual boob?
When will the Guardian and its commentators realize that global warming is a non-issue in the USA? Nobody is going to willingly see their jobs threatened for the sake of carbon emission reductions. Watch what happens to cap and trade. Watch what happens in Europe, too, as the costs of climate legislation become more manifest. (Hint: Australia). This issue is dead in the water, and you might as well get over it.
Europe has been increasingly critical of America's failures to live up to its global responsibilities. The US is not only the world's largest emitter of greenhouse gases but is by far the largest per capita emitter of carbon and other pollutants...
On the campaign trail, Barack Obama promised to reverse the Bush administration's terrible ecological record. Yet so far the world has seen more symbolic gestures from the Obama administration than accomplishments...
Here again, Europe is leading, while the Obama administration is dragging its feet. Europe has proposed far-reaching reforms designed to impose new rules on executive pay and bonuses,...
And now the money shot. A dig at the REAL problem - our Constitution.
it must be recognised that it's not just Obama's shortcomings that are causing the problem. The very structure of the American political system is at the heart of these failures. For example, thwarting Obama on a regular basis is an unrepresentative senate where "minority rule" prevails and undermines what a majority of the country may want. With two senators elected per state, regardless of population, California with more than 35 million people has the same number of senators as Wyoming with just half a million residents. This constitutional arrangement greatly favours low population states, many of which tend to be conservative, producing what one political analyst has called "a weighted vote for small-town whites in pickup trucks with gun racks."
The core of the problem is that Hussein can't do his job because of our outmoded 200+ year old Constitution.
Read the comments on article. Interesting.
