Interesting and dramatic title.
He actually said:
“I want to be realistic here, not everything that we talked about during the campaign are we going to be able to do on the pace we had
hoped,” Obama said in an interview on ABC’s “This Week” program broadcast this morning.
This does not surprise me at all. In fact, he warned of this possibility before the election.
I guess some of you weren't listening. I was.

It was the lagging economy and the promises to improve it that got him elected
Actually, McCain promised to improve the economy, too. So, I'm not buying that Obama's promise to improve the economy is what got him elected.
I believe Obama will aim for that one in his second term.
It's possible. Or in a couple years. This is not a surprise to me. He said the same, himself.
Good Luck everybody!! Batten down the hatches we are in for a bumpy ride.
You got that right! It's been coming for a few years now, and we've predicted it here on ATS, no matter who was our next president.
good that everyone's realizing that.

The headline should read; "Shock and Amazement, Stuns The Messiah Followers"
Not really, though. Because if his supporters were listening closely to him, they should be aware of the precarious position the country was and is
in. I know I'm not shocked to hear that some of the programs won't manifest in the first year or even the first term. I'm not "stunned" at ALL.
In fact, read the thread. The only ones who seem shocked are his (and our) critics.
Is Anyone other than Obama himself surprised by this?
I don't think he's surprised either.
As I said above, he warned of it before he was elected.

EVERYBODY saw the writing on the wall a long time ago. Everyone except Obama & friends that is!
You are mistaken. What makes you think we didn't see the writing on the wall the same as you did? Especially when he spoke about it himself...
I think you guys would love to see people turning against Obama in droves, but I think you're going to be disappointed. Don't forget, we were
listening to his speeches, reading his website. Many of you weren't. That's probably why this is such a shock to you.
Good luck coming to terms with it.
