We Must Not Expect Too Much
December 17, 2008News & Politics
One of the mistakes we make is to expect too much from President Obama in his first hundred days. This is a different world than 1933. At that time, although America's industrial base was dormant, it was waiting to be revived. Now, however, so many factories and plants have been shut down and stripped of their utility and purpose. They are empty shells. In many ways, the challenges facing Barack Obama are as great and even greater than those that faced Franklin D. Roosevelt.
