Obama: Give Him a Chance!!

He hasn’t even been doing the job for a year yet and already people are making their minds up about Barack Obama and how he’s

doing as the US President.

I’ve heard all sorts


He’s worse than Bush

He’s wasting money on the healthcare reform

He’s messed up the American economy

…to name a few. All of which have come from Americans I know in and outside of school.

While I do believe that everyone is entitled to their opinion…I do think that they’re has to be a good reason etc behind it. It seems that people are expecting the “Hope” and the “Change” and the “Progress” that Obama promised to just suddenly happen overnight…when it won’t. And now that it’s not happening straight away and he seems to be making a few slip ups, people are getting mad.

America’s economy was in a bad state a good fews years before Obama was considered to be the US President; so it’s probably going to take at least 2 or 3 years to try and fix it. Almost anyone outside of the US can tell you that the HealthCare plan in America has been messed up for a while. Obama’s current approach might not be the best one out there compared to other countries, but at least he’s trying to do something about it.

Now I’m not American [obviously]. And while I watch some American news Channels online, I’m not exposed as much to what Obama is doing as Americans are [obviously]. As I result, I don’t have an opinion about him and what he’s doing right now because there are a lot of things I don’t know. In other words, I’m not supporting him 100%, but at the same time I’m not against him.

But I will say this. You don’t have to be American to know that being the US President is a very difficult job. It’s something that only 43 other people have done, and as a result, almost all of us have no idea what it’s like to be in such a position. So it’s easy for us to sit there and make rash judgements…but like I said before, it hasn’t even been a year yet.

I’m not saying that every American has to like him, I’m just saying that they should give him a chance. The man’s not even halfway through his position as President…why not wait until then to make such a huge judgement?

So to any American reading this who is against Obama that much…just give it a go. Give it some time. If things are still as bad as you think two or 3 years from now, then you can say what you want. But who knows…things might have turned around completely by then for the better
