ABSTRACT
The article focuses on U.S. President Barack Obama's shift to patient government action as he tries to maintain the support and trust of the U.S. public. Among the policies of the Obama administration that affected the president's job ratings are the huge 787 billion U.S. dollar stimulus package which resulted in a high budget deficit and the rising unemployment. Obama's politics of patience is criticized by Republican strategists as the public are restless and anxious.
