Like America, there are people who decided to ascribe unfair expectations to Obama's first four years.

This is news?

I mean, I know we're all still waiting for our rainbow-farting unicorns....

Four years ago Africa greeted Barack Obama's election with rapture, predicting America's first black president would smother the continent with attention. But instead of warm hand-holding, Africa got hard-headed, security-first policies.

Oh for crying out loud.

How dare he put US security and interests first! It's not like he's the President or anything.

Oops, I forgot I'm not allowed to joke.

Yeah Obama might have the "blood of Africa" in him, but Congress is full of the blood of right-wing conservative bullshiat that's kept pretty much all this administration's attention here, mainly just stopping the bleeding of the past 10 years.

He didn't completely dedicate his presidency to the issues of Africans and African Americans, as all you far right twits predicted. You must be crushed.

It's sad that people really did seem think he was a Messiah. I think the fact that Bush altered the world so much in his 8 years that people started to think that the US President was super-human. Of course as they say, it is easier to destroy than to build.

Not so much crushed as remorseful

And McCain promised us of more of the same with a topping of Palin America.

Besides, it's the white half of him that's causing all of the problems. ;)

I am not saying McCain was awesome by any strength, and nor did I vote for him, but when Obama was elected, anyone with half a brain knew that the shiat he promised was going to bite him in the ass in 4 years.

There isn't anything Obama has or has not done that warrants voting for a return to the Bush years.

Bush is running again? Oh yeah, Buuuuush.

The irony is, the two times Bush actually ran he beat the best the Dems could muster up. They've done much better against his shadow.

Al Gore and John Kerry were the best the Dems could muster? Well - hell, they can't really say much about Mitt then, can they.....that is, not without seeming like hypocritical asses.
