    Obama risks being called 'The Undecider'

    http://www.cnn.com/2010/OPINION/03/1...isk/index.html
    When he started his term, the president immediately released an executive order to close Guantanamo. Yet over a year later, the facility remains open. When Democrats complained that the president had not laid the groundwork for this decision and they confronted heated attacks from Republicans in their home states, the president hesitated about moving forward.
    After the failed Christmas Day bombing effort, the policy seemed to grind to a halt.
    Similarly, the president made a major announcement that one of the 9/11 masterminds would be tried in a civilian court in New York. The announcement received the predictable criticism from Republicans who warned that Obama was endangering national security. Local New York officials, who initially agreed to the decision, changed their mind and said no to the White House. President Obama backed down and is now considering continuing to use military tribunals, which he once called a "legal black hole," to handle the case.
    Nor is it likely that he will stick to the timetable that he outlined for withdrawing troops from Iraq, a signature promise from the campaign.

    I agree with the article. Say what you will about Bush, but he basically accomplished everything he wanted to do, except medical savings accounts. Obama hasn't accomplished any of his big goals as of yet, and we're well on our way to being halfway through his 4 year term.
