Not when nearly every step he takes is still on the Dark Side or deeper into it. I don’t need four years to see that. However he could redeem himself if he supported single payer, prosecution of war criminals like Bush/Cheney etc. would go a long way. Otherwise he is just posing as one thing while doing another just like Clinton was.

Wow! You people would call a movie bad after the opening credits. Obama has been in office 8 months. Obama’s hope is still there. You all are just too quick to dismiss. I’m sure all of the posters here have one pet issue that Obama has not got to yet, and that is why you are sour on him. Give him 4 years, then complain.

He was “our last hope” candidate. Too bad it was the false hope he was pushing to fool us for a while longer while the machinations of the Cabal continue to tear down the republic from the inside while using its precious resources to build up the framework for a theocratic empire to come from the ruins of the republic they intend on destroying. Obama is their willing agent. [Just what did they promise him I wonder? A Black Homeland for him to preside over? Who knows?]
Bait and switch. False hope is the worse kind of hope and evil person can foster on another. They continue hoping Lucy will allow Charlie Brown to kick that football. “Previous experience can’t predict future results!” And yet the same outcome again and again. Change faces but the heart is the same.

I never bought into obama’s “hope & change” mantra. However, he’s worse than I thought and worse than bush in that he has conned the American people into thinking he is for “them.” He’s NOT, he’s a stooge for the financial industry, the health care industry, and the military. He’s also a person who is obsessed with himself and his political ambition. What are we to do? Personally I am dropping out. I did care but no more.

yes, hope faded a long time ago, but cartoon needs a diverse audience, since the 2 guys may not have been in the voting for Obama.
See http://www.blackagendareport.com for good articles.
Paul Street, historian, review of Obama, the pol, in his Aug. 15, 2009, Znet article - easy read, comprehensive, with footnotes (for those who like ‘em):

To the contrary! My hope is flourishing now that people are finally realizing what a sham this guy really is.

One man can’t do it all without our help. Hope only fades if we let it…

Well Mike, it’s taken awhile…but you’ve finally published one cartoon somewhat
critical of Obama. Glad to see you are showing a little sense, but the hope faded a
long time ago.
