Absurd expectations about Obama (letter)by M. GordonNews Weekly

Congratulations to Barack Obama on his election. Congratulations to John McCain for his inherent decency. Victors can write the history, but it is not that long ago that John McCain led in the polls before the economic tsunami hit.
Now the reality of having to deal with taxes, trade protectionism, economic management and massive deficits, endless domestic demands, foreign conflicts (Russia got in quick) will bring us back to earth.
Many people have had absurd expectations of what Obama is likely to achieve in office. But personality cults are dangerous, and shortly fans will become apologists or disillusioned.(Mr) M. Gordon,
