The decisions and statements Obama has made thus far say one thing. They say he is already on the wrong path. My bet is in his first two years he will side with every single majority vote there is. You could say that he will be siding with the democrats but have you looked at the congress ratings lately? Obama picking center-right positions for the executive branch is absolute proof that he is the ultimate "yes man". He is already on the wrong path. The democratic and republican congress is the ultimate "yes man" congress. Anyone know of the good things congress has done in the last two years? Anyone know the congress approval rating? If Obama follows the same trend of listening to congress and being the man trying to keep people happy than his approval ratings will undoubtedly correlate with the Congress' very quickly. His actual performance as president will of course suffer as well. He is already on the wrong path. Also his executive branch picks display one thing beyond all else. What it displays is that Obama would be willing to go to the ends of the earth to keep everyone happy. This basically means he may still have clear judgment but he is not willing to find the things that need to be sacrificed in order to obtain the best opportunity cost. You could say bailouts relate to this. He is already on the wrong path. Oh but NeoRio Obama isn't even president yet. Oh but undying under analyzing Obama supporter Obama's agreement with every single thing congress has said thus far with the hiring of an executive branch that is attempting to keep people happy forecasts what type of president Obama will be. I don't care if you dislike or like Obama. You might think Obama is still the agent of change the country needs and you may also disagree with all my accusations as well but there is one thing no one can deny. If Obama follows the path of congress he will fail.
