He has not done anything right. He is leading us down the path to socialism and spending money our children's children will have to pay back. If he is not stopped, we will be in the worst economic depression in history. But, who is going to spot him, that freak Pelosi....? Change........Yeah, from bad to worse!

 

Stock market down 250 pts. today..(monday 23rd)..Almost 1000 pts. since the pork bill hit his desk.....Any more questions.......?

If it's funny, laugh. If it isn't funny, laugh anyway!

I'm sorry but this is getting really scary. This man has no IDEA what he is doing and we all are going to pay the price! This is what we get when someone with NO experience is voted into office.

Obama is a joke!  He is already well on the way America's distruction.  You get what you vote for.

Obama got the first step going by getting a stimulous plan passing in good time. He is asking experts for their opinion. But what he misses is to concentrate on only one matter and that is employment. Besides getting the money flowinf again, it gives back pride to those who are unemployed with nothing to do but be depressed over their situation. Employment gives the government immediate withholding taxes, relieves the unemployment administration, and gets cash flowing.

Most who are negative about Obama's attempt to level the ship from sinking, I ask "what would you do?" ........what would Bush have done...nothing!  Obama has gone full throttle to undo the eight years of total mess that left him a humongous task to help our economy and the total world crisis!

What you see is what you get. He who treats me wrong, you are out of my life.

Well if this posts twice, sorry about that ... I had a glitch. 

As I was saying... but in stronger terms.  Its time Americans get off their lazy derrierres and help themselves.  It's so easy to sit in the bleachers and criticize what a hard working, caring man is trying to do for each of us.  If you don't like what he's doing, find a better way.  Fight for it the way he fought to be President.  If he intentionally rips the USA a good one like our former President did, then it's time to sound off.  But where were these critics for the 8 year rape!  Ooops, I'm sorry...a lot of them were participants!

Instead  of second guessing this administration in a bias, partisan and negative manner...why don't we unite before our country goes broke.

The president ran on bipartisanship and openness, yet the stimulus was well short of a joint project between the two parties. It appears democrats worked alone and used urgency to trump teamwork and judgement. President Obama let Pelosi and REEd get the upper hand with no good choice on the stimulus. Back them and get a sub optimal bill or throw them under the bus and start over with his leadership as the driving force. Unfortun ately, his action was party motivated or time driven, the opposite of his campaign promise. More  of this behavior is a disaster!
