Obama is good at being cool, hip, and glib. This is what got him elected, but it sure doesn't mean he is a good president. Personally, I would prefer a nerdy, unhip, but economically savvy type like Steve Forbes as president. Can we get him to run again? Actually, on second thought, he would be a poor candidate. Not charismatic enough like Obama is. That's why Forbes lost in '96. His concepts were over the head of the electorate. He couldn't make fiscal common sense understandable to the headline readers. We need a charismatic economic conservative. Ain't one out there I know of. Redistributionists are in luck. It probably doesn't matter anyway when practically the whole government is bought and paid for by big money interests.
