On November 4, 2008, a majority of American people put Barack H. Obama and the Democrats in power - in the House, Senate, and Oval Office. They voted for hope. They voted for change they could believe in. They were promised the most ethical and transparent administration in history. They were promised a bipartisan Congress. The world would be safer, the economy better, the environment cleaner. Lobbyists would be a thing of the past. Our troops would come home and Guantanamo Bay would close. Our families would be stronger and our future would be brighter. How is that ‘hope and change’ working out for everyone? A look back at Obama’s frustrating first year in office reveals that it was a real clunker.
