Too many issues at one time?
President Obama is getting criticism because people feel that he should only be focused on the economy and working on other issues. These are probably the same people that criticized John McCain during the election last fall for suspending his campaign and coming back to Washington to vote on the bailout. You have to realize that there are many problems that need attention given the expectations that people have of Obama they expect him to work on some aspect of issues of high importance. He is doing this while we see what aspects of the stimulus bill will work and what needs to be tweaked. Just at my job today I was going back and forth from one high priority project to another high priority one. The only exception for this would be a national or worldwide military or security crisis and usually people will allow a president to put aside most issues so that he can focus on resolving that issue.
