article imageBarack Obama says change is hard

By Andrew Moran     Nov 2, 2009 in Politics
After winning the 2008 Presidential election with the slogan of "change", Barack Obama now says "change is hard", "Change isn't supposed to be easy" and "Change doesn't happen overnight."
One year has passed since the 44th President Barack Obama won the election on the campaign of "Change We Can Believe In" and the his supporters chanted the infamous words of “Yes We Can” but now the former Senator of Illinois believes "change is hard," according to AFP.
On two other occasions, the President also said "Change isn't supposed to be easy" and "Change doesn't happen overnight."
Last year, in front of thousands of supporters, Obama told the audience, “It's been a long time coming. But tonight, because of what we did on this date, in this election, at this defining moment, change has come to America.”
Earlier this week, as the President signed a bill that would slash wasteful defense spending, he said, “Change is hard.” A few days after that signing, Obama then reiterated a similar message saying that change is not easy and then told Democrats the next day that change doesn’t happen in 24 hours.
Obama is currently facing pressing issues in the nation such as the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, health care reform, an ever increasing debt and deficit and an approval rating that continues to decline.
Nevertheless, Bruce Buchanan, Professor of government at the University of Texas, told AFP, “He has delivered more than most presidents, and more quickly than most.”
Currently, according to Gallup, President Obama is holding a 55 per cent approval rating.
