I hope Obama succeeds. I do. It means that America has succeeded. But right now, it looks like Obama is going to bankrupt everything and everyone. No one thinks the stimulus bill is going to help, add in the 8500 or so earmarks Obama promised wouldnt be in any more bills, and you get more of the same bull****.

I thought change was coming. The only change is the color of the man running the office, everything else has stayed the same.

Yeah, let's blame Obama.

McCain said himself he wouldn't touch the stock market and had trouble reading the economy.

It's called momentum.

You put a car on a step hill. You slowly push it back in neutral. It begins to fall... the weight transfer, it starts moving down hill. As it goes down hill, it builds momentum. Now the problem is, how do you stop the moving car?

Right now the car is moving down hill at high speeds and a lot of momentum. Do expect anyone to be able to just stand in front of the car and stop it? No, you'd die.

Obama needs to time. Anyone judging Obama after 40 something or 50 something days or even 1 year is an idiot. This guy has 4 years and he will be judged by what he does as a whole.

But obviously, some people have no vision, have no ability to see things beyond what they read.

Or you just an Obama hater...and if you can admit that then it'd make sense. :thumbsup:

People who wanted the rich and businesses taxed to death are getting their wish. Obama will make it a reality to back his spending programs. All the lower and middle class folks who cried and thought it was so great he was elected at some point will realize businesses and rich folk spend and create jobs and if they don't the middle class and below don't work and get laid off. Obama trashed Bush's spending and preached fiscal conservatism and abruptly spent more in one month than Bush did in 8 years. To stimulate an economy you encourage business and put rules in place to encourage investing and the creation of jobs. Printing more money and taxing the hell out of the guys who create the jobs isn't a real smart road but its where we are headed. Unfortunately most real businessmen can see what Barry is doing and if you want a real forebearer of where we are headed just watch the stock market. You aint seen nothing yet.

Unfortunately Bush gave lip service to being a conservative and also spent tons, people saw him for what he said he was, a conservative republican and thus why so many jumped on the far left Obama bandwagon. I truly hope Obama's plan works but the smart money (the stock market and big business) know the score and it aint looking good. I hope things work out for you man, you seem like a crazy dude and a very hard worker.

Wow. You miss the point entirely. This man said he wouldnt allow earmarks, and is pressing the passing of a bill loaded with them, and it was not Bush's earmarks, because its budget proposals for the house and senate, meaning it is Pelosi & Reid's earmarks, with Presidential approval.

Not only that but as soon as he was elected they started

That ultimately came to the conclusion that the Clintons

He's got more important things to worry about than 1% of the budget.
And 1% of anything is hardly loaded.
And as far a Reid, the Republican senate minority leader has twice

Considering alot of what the Clintons were being investigated for had evidence show up only after the statute of limitations was up, makes you wonder about the legality of their activities. Also, the republicans didnt try to impeach, they did impeach. He wasnt removed from office, and it was not about getting head, it was about getting in the way of an investigation and asking others to lie for him. Purjury, not getting head from a fatty intern.

Bush won in 2000. He had more electoral votes, and for more historical accuracy, it was Al Gore who sued to begin the recount process.

Most people are on Obama's case because he is spending more money we dont have then we have ever spent in our history. His budget is larger by far than any president NOT fighting the second world war, percentage to GDP wise. He believes he has a mandate to radically change America's economic and cultural life, and he doesnt. Obama is a political lightweight with no governing or managerial experience, and we get to suffer while 'the one" learns on the job.

You got it wrong again. He has promised no earmarks , transparancy on all bills and no lobbyist in important positions. He has backtracked on all 3. Not bad for a month and a half in office. Those 40% from the Republicans are either typicle politicians or soon to be hypocrites. I dont have use for any of the two.
