On the Fact that Obama Couldn't Manage So Much as ONE Walmart Store and Yet the American People Have Elected Him Twice to Run a $16,000,000,000,000 Economy and the World's Most Potent Military
There are two variables here, I think. a) The fact that he had two extremely buffoonish Republican opponents (McCain, especially) to run against and b) the fellow pandered more (and more effectively) than any Presidential candidate in U.S. history.......That, and I really think that the country wanted to elect a black person President (the piety part of the West's power-piety Puritanical duality - for a deeper analysis I recommend Samuel Huntington's "The Clash of Civilizations"). Hell, I even voted for him (2008) in part because of that.
