The Obama Love-in continues....

While reading this article, titled Americans giving Obama extraordinary support: polls and trying hard not to throw up all over my keyboard, this little play on words caught my attention:

Of those surveyed, 79 percent were optimistic about the next four years under Obama, the highest level of goodwill attained by any of the past five incoming presidents.
Followed by:
Most Americans told The Times that they did not expect real progress in improving the economy, reforming the health care system or ending the war in Iraq -- three of the central promises of the Obama campaign for at least two years.
So, 79 percent of "us" are optimistic about his 1st term, but most of us don't think Obama is going to deliver on 3 of his "central promises"? Sorry, but that doesn't sound like extraordinary support. But maybe that's just me.
