I have been extremely happy to see President Obama in action. It feels as if we have a leader who is actively engaged in the issues of our country.
Here are a couple examples of things that I have been impressed by:
- Active action by the administration to stop Citi Group from purchasing a $50 million dollar jet.
- Direct engagement with the Republican party on the stimulus bill. While the Republicans still voted against the stimulus package, I believe Obama is building a strong foundation with his Republican counterparts. Very unique for Washington.
- Swift action on closing Guantanamo Bay. A plan still is necessary, but the action item is clear.
- Strong foreign policy messages, including a lack of the old cowboy diplomacy of Bush. It is good to the administration reach out to Islamic nations in a civil way.
