I view Obama's rise to be similiar in some ways to that of Jimmy Carter. People were disenfranchised with the status quo and were looking for change. Out of the south came a man with a huge grin, southern charm, and an infectious personality. His credentials were not thoroughly checked and he received a pass just because he was different and a change from the past administration. I know firsthand and maybe some have studied history to understand how disastrous his presidency was. His inexperienced domestic policy and his naivety in foreign policy exposed him to be a weak and a mistake in the position he was elected to. Something I believe will happen with Obama if he is elected. Your thoughts.
