Campaigning vs. Governing

"Self-described ``Mama for Obama'' Judith Reiss sat in the spectator's gallery at the war court here last week clutching a photo of her bond-trader son Joshua, who perished in the World Trade Center on Sept.11, 2001. She then offered a painful observation. . . . Then she offered advice to Barack Obama, the president she stumped for door-to-door in last year's election: Don't close the prison camps at Guantánamo. Don't abandon military commissions justice.
Heartbroken relatives of 9/11 attack victims have emerged as a key constituency in the campaign to stop Obama from making good on his Jan.22 executive order to empty the prison camps and revise the controversial military trials within a year."


Every time Obama makes a decision, Obama disappoints someone who voted for Obama on the basis of a non specific statement. Different people interpreted "hope" and "change" differently.

That's why Obama's approval rating is falling a net 1% per month.
