I'm British and live in the UK where the only major coverage of the man we've had is of the apparent euphoria when he was elected, the Nobel Peace Prize (we were as bemused as everyone else by that), and questions of his nationality. That and him gazing into the middle-distance on his book covers.
Judging from Open Salon - and other interactive sites like facebook, where people have badges on their profile pages counting down the days until he's out of office - no one has anything but contempt and dislike for him.
Criticism of one's politicians and political systems is a democratic right (and a luxury few nations possess) so I appreciate the right to do so and hope that there will be a great deal of it in the UK now that we have a Prime Minister for whom the majority of us did not vote - many voting for the opposing party, not because they particularly wished them to get into power, but as a means to vote against the man who now rules our country. Our government was created through political deal-making rather than the public's vote.
Unless you've had a similar experience - perhaps equal to the sham of an election that got George W. Bush into power (as it was reported here) - presumably enough people voted for him to make him President. Are their voices not being heard, have they all turned against him, or is it that their posts just don't happen to make the OS cover or editor's pick?
Is it a race issue - the man being half African-American - disguised as an ideological one or has race nothing to do with it? Does anyone out there like the man? At present, the opinion pieces create the image of a nation massively opposed to the ruler of their country yet unable to do anything about it. It would make a refreshing change to hear from those in favour of the man. If, indeed, there are any.
