This article seems to have the same concerns that I have had about the President Obama. President Obama made a big mistake by leaving everything to congress, and not showing enough fighting spirit. I agree with Mr. Mondale that President Obama has a great opportunity to change things, but he is going about it the wrong way. I say " Speak loudly and carry a big stick as well."
