And the children shall lead them

Perhaps Obama’s problem is communication. He may be the kind of guy who does not like to boast about his accomplishments but some young folks think that he ought to be credited for the hard work he has done in such a short time. Is he our modern-day MOSES!

Suggestions for the president: – Increase funding for Alzheimer’s research, develop a pill for amnesia and stop feeding Americans fast food pap it is bad for memory and expectations. Americans are becoming the dullest people on the planet for goodness sake – do something.

This site is long overdue. It was created and researched by three university kids. Who after hearing continuously in the press, and from the talking heads on TV, that the Obama Administration and Congress has a problem communicating its numerous accomplishments to the general public, decided to act.  A failure to communicate which allowed the Republicans to define the President and Democratic Congress in a negative light. Ultimately leading to the midterm election results. It’s an amazing list of accomplishments. And to think it was achieved in just eighteen months. If only the professional political establishment had the creativity of our youth…the election results may have been different.
