Times like this will certainly test the "wonder president" Barack Obama.

As much as I do dislike Obama, his rhetoric in foreign countries is flawless. The speach in Berlin drew the same type of positive reviews. He does really well in large crowds this one. Hence why he's the perfect canditate. Handsome, young and a good speaker.
Anyway back on point. Yes Obama does appear to be the right man for giving speeches but speeches alone won't save the economy and probably wouldn't stop N. Korea going all nuclear on the south's ass
It's a little different with Obama. I think we all on some level have been swept into Obamamania.
You're right, just look at the news recently. Wells Fargo is being accused of racist tendencies towards African Americans. Obama played that race card very well. I don't think a caucasian could pull all of this off with such ease. There would be many more hoops to jump through. And it is a difficult thing to come to terms that racism is still very prevelant in our society. Even I am prone to it on some level or another in certain situations. We all are.
