Newsweek’s Cover Tells President Obama, “Hit the Road Barack!”

The political climate for the upcoming election is heating up. And supporters of President Obama are a little busy at this week’s Newsweek cover. With a tagline reading,

Hit the Road Barack: We Need A New President

Niall Ferguson explains why it’s time for President Barack Obama to pack his bags. The author writes:

Yet in that brief period America has gone from the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. to the apotheosis of Barack Obama. You would not be human if you failed to acknowledge this as a cause for great rejoicing.”

Yet the question confronting the country nearly four years later is not who was the better candidate four years ago. It is whether the winner has delivered on his promises. And the sad truth is that he has not.
