Obama's first two months
In retrospect, the American populace should not have been surprised at the reaction to Barack Obama's actions in his first two months in office. At that early point, supporters were disappointed at his constant bumbling, far worse than that exhibited by George W. Bush. People were just starting to understand that Obama could not speak without a teleprompter and script. If he got the wrong script, he would say the wrong thing. His policies were a shock, as he was intent on implementing as quickly as possible, a far-left dream list of policies. Most people who voted for him had just assumed that he would give them a presidency similar to President Clinton, but with more style. Instead, they were getting another Jimmy Carter, with all the drawbacks of Carter, with a much more radical agenda, and even more inept than his role model.
