Obama Advisors Temper Expectations

According to a CBS2Chicago report, advisers to Pres. elect Barack Obama are worried that expectations are too high and are working to try and lower them. "President-elect Barack Obama and his inner circle fear that some voters expect him to turn around the economy, wind down the war in Iraq and, perhaps, cure cancer -- all by the Fourth of July."

Well I may be mistaken, but wasn't Obama the one who raised these expectations? He has been going around for 2 years, promising to 'fix what's broken',' make history' and ' change the world.' Heck he even has a plan how to crown a college football national champion.With rhetoric like this who needs expectations?

He got elected because he convinced enough people that he can fix everything. He is like a real life Schneider- from One day at a Time. Now his handlers are saying he can't actually do this, and the country better be prepared for this fact.

A bit disingenuous, don't you think?
