"Why not at least wait until the man's half way through his term before treating him as if he could walk on water?"

I think a lot of the adulation towards Obama (many of which I'm not afraid to admit I share), draws from people's need to feel as if they can achieve the seemingly impossible in their own lives, too. In other words, it's not really about Obama, It's about what he represents for people: The notion that you can do the impossible.

Recognizing this, businesses (both licit and illicit) are trying to simply make as much money as they can off of it.
