Dr. Alexander talked about how people are scared of change, and how they fear people that are different; for example President Obama is an open person, not many is used to that.  When President Obama talked before the parliament in Turkey one of the things he said was "The United states is not and will not be at war with Islam'.  Fear cold be a big motivator in a lot of bad ways.  He also talked about the President's performance in economic issues.  He believes the economy is in deep and cannot be fixed overnight.  He appreciates the President's commitment on Health care reform, he concluded that it is too early to say if the President will be succesfull in just a year.
