    • Because he is an every man who appeals to the masses. He was not raised with a silver spoon in his mouth and he was not brought up with everything being handed to him. He worked hard to get to where he is and he had to fight obstacles to get there.
      He speaks a language we all understand, that of hope and fighting the odds.
      Plus he just seems unflappable. To put it as my son put it today, he’s just cool. He reminds me of the type of person that would get involved in his neighborhood. He would not just speak about it, but be about it.

    • I don’t think it’s just because he has not taken office yet. What President elect in your lifetime have you seen this much furor over? None.
      It’s a shame that he has to come after the very inept George Bush and clean up his mess. If he does not do it fast enough then of course we will hear all of the naysayers coming out of the trees to condemn him.

    • Yes Inakika he does seem to be a be about it kind of guy. I think he speaks a universal language, not for one type of people but for the country. He is man with family values, and this country needs to see family values in the forefront again.

    • Cause he is hot!! lol

      I saw/see a man who can speak in full sentences, is intelligent, highly capable of a political position, with good values.

      I have never seen a president who looks at and touches his family in such an honest and truthful way. I believe, for the first time in many years, we have a pres with true values and a reason to succeed. I feel he will go above and beyond to be a gr8 president to show the nay sayers what he’s got!! When he speaks you cannot help but listen.

      Go Obama!!!!

    • All great answers especially Robinesque. I do know there is more to it. He is very intelligent and down to earth. I have never been able to relate to any past Prez like I have with PE Obama.
      I just read an article on approval ratings adn Bush was at 20% with Obama’s in the high 70’s.

    • Absolutely, Wittymom. He’s intelligent and he seems to care about all people. He’s not some modern day Messiah, he’s just a regular guy. When he takes his shoes off his feet stink just like mine.

    • Every new president is left with the mess left behind by the former.  And you are so right Ingrid....he will be condemned if not cleaned up quick enough.

    • In response to annie123, I do agree with you.  Obama has made alot of promises, and will be held accountable by many if he does not deliver in a timely fashion.

      The one thing that does concern me is the fact that there are high expectations placed on this ONE MAN!  It is up to all of us to make our way.  The President is not responsible for every wrong that this country has and will face.  The President is our Commander in Chief, his main responsability is to keep our country safe.  We need to look at the Senate, the House, and our local governments to enact the laws and changes we desire for our own communities.

      I do hope he succeds to meet the expectations people are looking for,yet I do worry that many are looking for the wrong things.

      As a country, we need to pray for those in office. Once the honeymoon period is over and reality strikes in, we all must do our part.  Follow our New Presidents lead, become involved in our communities and give back.

      Have a Blessed and Peaceful Day,
      Angela203

      Intelligent
      Highly Educated
      Common Sense minded
      Charismatic
      Willing to LISTEN to others (something Bush did not do)
      Open minded
      Openly shows his love for Michelle and the girls
      Down to earth
      At the same time very confident but cool as a cucumber.

      Fine as all hell - lol.
      Has that black man sexy swagger - that’s right I said it cause it is true.

      And lastly a beautiful smile!

    • I think he has such a high rating because he is very “charasmatic” and handsome.  He speaks well, and has a presence about him that is unparallel to any other president except JFK.  (my opinion, anyway)  

      He commands a certain respect which is what I think we need to get things back on track.

      Time will tell, right?

    • He appears to really care about the people. He can speak elegantly and people are looking for Hope. We are hitting rock bottom right now and quite honestly we have not hit bottom yet. Bush presented the tone of it is my way or no way where Obama presents things and then includes others in solving the problems. He has not shut out the Republicans. He overlooks peoples flaws. I believe this is what the Americans have been looking for in a President. However time will tell. He can promise us the moon but it is not his alone to deliver. He has others that must make it happen also.
