While his leftist supporters must have been uneasy about Barack Obama's initial political appointments, they would have been pleased that he was enacting the dream liberal agenda by dictat. All the executive orders of Reagan and the two Bushes were quickly overruled by orders of the new president. He also ignored the wounded state of the American auto industry and enacted tough new standards that would have to be financed by the American public in the form of higher prices. So much for the moderate or centrist!

Another wild card was the threat of Islamic terrorist attack on the inauguration of Barack Obama.
