Is the left realizing Obama is a blowhard without substance?

President Obama seems to be in perpetual campaign mode. It is hard to find a time he is not on television. There is a certain narcissism about him. Obama also hasn't demonstrated any serious ability to lead this country. In spite of the election being almost one year ago, he is still beating the "blame Bush" drum. America can not be lead forward by a self-centered individual who is constantly looking backward. Obama needs to remember he ran for the job of President, not movie star.

From Newsweek:
The president’s problem isn’t that he is too visible; it’s the lack of content in what he says when he keeps showing up on the tube. Obama can seem a mite too impressed with his own aura, as if his presence on the stage is the Answer. There is, at times, a self-referential (even self-reverential) tone in his big speeches. They are heavily salted with the words “I” and “my.” (He used the former 11 times in the first few paragraphs of his address to the U.N. last week.) Obama is a historic figure, but that is the beginning, not the end, of the story.
