Obama is a guinea pig!!

I feel that the hype and hoopla being created around Mr. President, is a mist created to cover the ground realities. Mr. President falls under several categories which make him vulnerable to be a guinea for the vested interests of many.
1) His timing; Everything around is going wrong, economy is crumbling, frauds are unearthing, people are going jobless, USA's war decisions are being proven wrong and criminal, nobody has a clue what is going to happen and how its going to be back to normal. In this grim situation comes a man who will fix everything and bring smile to everyone's face..No i m not talking about Santa (not even the Santa of Santa Banta fame), I am talking about Mr Obama. He is the superman, he can do everything, everything that's beyond human capabilities like race against time. He will heal the economic wounds much before they would normally heal, his midas touch will bring the glory of gold back in the sunlight.....Isnt this what is being projected??
Basically, its a human behaviour...whenever we get into trouble, we look for support and a shoulder..or probably a garbage bin where we can dump all our problems & pains and then watch from a distance.Mr. President has been made to bear the load of the world, and he will have to rise above his human capabilities to fix things within time. Otherwise,two things will happen; the problems will get resolved with time OR the problem will stay for some more time and then get resolved :)

2) His abilities/inabilities; He is a black and a born-muslim. So people are using those characteristics as a selling point as well. To showcase how he has risen from nowhere and then using it as his USP. I dont doubt his days of struggle but are they big enough to make him bear the load of the world?

3) American attitude; I have noticed that since Americans are elite pampered kids of the world, for them even a small fart is a HUGE bang. Everybody starts talking about it, everybody starts getting scared and running around, everybody is concerned....its like...ohh my god, he is eating with unwashed hands...he can die of jaundice, please donate for his hospitalisation!
So even though the world crisis is humungous, it can be solved by doing work and not creating havoc!! On a similar note, before Obama several president's have taken oath, then what is it that is so big about him that you can make him a superhero even before he has done anything

I think Obama is just a name being used to sell things, being used to dump the work on, being used to give a name to a guinea pig!

....welcome onboard Mr. President. Please prove me wrong, i will be more than happy!

hmm i agree that his timing is not one the best.
There's too much of hype around him for sure....but from his talk and the theme of his campaign, i really think its all about hope which is usually associated with anything thats new...as u rightly said in the end you would be more than glad if you were proved wrong!.
But then no one president can change the whole world ..he can influence in a big way since he is the president of the most influential country in the world .His decisions will surely change the world in a big way, but having said that ,the impact of those decisions will surely depend on the honesty of their implementation as he himself said during his speech.
