The Obama election slogan of "Yes We Can" seemed to voice a hope that new leadership would put right what had gone wrong with America. Anticipating a new era of government activism, some commentators read the death rites on "The Age of Reagan," the post-1980 anti-statist trend of American politics. Within a short time, however, "Yes We Can" gave way to "No We Can't," as America's government became enmeshed in gridlock and political polarization."@en ;
