ABSTRACT
The author expresses his views on the status of U.S. President Barrack Obama's programs and governance. According to the author, Obama's stimulus program, health reform, and financial reform are just halfway through. Such status, the author believes, is achieved due to the resistance of the Republicans, some conservative Democrats, and Obama's lack of boldness as a president.
