Just take it at it's given merit.. The prez is attempting to reconnect with the 'tech-savvy' younger generation, all a campaign ploy -- the equivalent of a candidate taking a photo op at a church or school. That said, I certainly think Obama's team has been doing a bit of a better job with the campaign appearances.
Admittedly, I voted for Obama.. lesser of two evils, honestly. I was intrigued after his 2k4 DNC keynote speech, though was a bit turned off by his quick rise. His campaign against Ryan was vicious -- divorce records should just be left secret, whether or not the guy liked to go to sex clubs with his model wife. Immediately, Obama was pretty much entirely bought out by the left-wing interests, who can be credited with his rise to power -- and the reason why he's been surrounded with such an epic failure of a cabinet, all beholden to one special interest or another.
In addition, he set his goals too high, ultimately being illegitimized by congress before he got anywhere close to getting something substantial accomplished. He made the same mistake as Clinton, spending the first half of his term trying to push social issues (health care reform, in both cases -- neither accomplishing their goals) on an uphill battle, ultimately losing their party's control of the legislature.
Since.. it's not as if Obama isn't working hard.. it's not as if he's a 'lazy black guy'.. Really, he just doesn't have any real support -- especially in the case of his own party, most of whom are entirely too afraid to align themselves with his agenda. They couldn't even pass true health care reform while in control of both the house and senate, instead pandering to CW. Snow by dropping any substantial provision to the bill in order to gain her pledge of support, only to have her vote against it anyways (without any need of her vote to begin with).
I don't have much problem with Obama... It's the rest of his party that I have a major problem with -- starting with Howard Dean, Harry Reid, and Joe Biden. The prez already has to wake up at 4am just to endure 4 hours of security briefings before breakfast -- the least the democratic leadership could do is show up for work once in awhile.
