  • agreed
  • Yes, to all.
  • i'm watching the inauguration at the moment. i'm not exactly jumping up for joy and partying yet. i'm waiting to see what he can do more then what he can say now that he's the man in charge. Welcome President Obama.
  • I don't see how he is "over-exposed" any more than any other new president. True, this is the first time someone not caucasian has become president. He has inherited quite a mess. I know, as well as most others, that the troubles that face this country cannot be resolved quickly nor easily. But I remain hopeful.
  • When/if it gets to you, you can do exactly the same thing we used to do with Bush, change the channel!
  • A lot of what he wants to do is simply bringing the US up to speed with the civilized world in terms of democracy, healthcare, human rights and so on. There's no reason why he shouldn't succeed, as long as the Republicans don't get back into power in four years time and turn the US into a third world nation. It does get very boring though watching the US media, who endlessly go on about things that are irrelevant and speculate when they don't have any real news, instead of reporting on genuine stories from the rest of the world. But then that's what they've done for years, so no surprise there.
  • I think "overexposure" is a term used when one does not like a person. I suspect you would not feel the same way if you liked him more. Let us hope for the day when a non-white president is no longer a big deal
  • oh you have no idea how sick of it i am..i;m in school now and downstairs there are posters that are put up that have an outline of the U.S.A and our country is in African colors instead of red white and blue..its ridiculous..absolutely freakin ridiculous..just because there is another president doesn't mean that the traditions of the USA are going to change in anyway..and they better not because thats what this country was built on
  • No, it makes everyone feel better. Time will tell if he can actually do anything.
  • There has been an unusual amount of coverage AND four years ago there was an uproar about the cost of the inaguration.........this time it's over $100,000,000 more but not a word from the media. ALL people need to read/research without bias.......just as not all Democrats can walk on water.....not all Republicans will turn our country into a "third world nation". No economy the size of the US turns on a dime, anyone who thinks our current economic crisis is the result of eight years needs to take some courses in economics. And, a lot of social give-aways come at a cost, are you prepared to pay your share?
  • I agree in part about the overexposure of the First Family for the wrong reasons. I don't care what they wear, where their children go to school or any other personal information about their lives. The media is having a field day with these mundane boring observations - do you really give a crap about who designed Michelle Obama's dress? I do however agree with your observation about building hopes on Obama that he could never possibly live up to. I'm sure he will bring change that is positive - something this country is in desparate need of. But we won't all open our door tomorrow and see that our house landed in Oz and life is in beautiful technicolor. But let's give the guy a chance to bring about the changes he has promised.
  • I think what we're really seeing is a bit of misdirection -- Obama has become, to some degree, a symbol for American values that people feel have been lost and are now reawakening: the meaning of what it is to be an American has been muddled and compromised... by our giving in to fear and greed, by forgetting the difference between conserving values and conserving inequality, etc. It's true that no individual can live up to such massive expectations... but it's really not about an individual living up to expectations, it's about a society recovering the source of their power and vision, about remembering who they are and why they're going to all the bother of being a nation. However, that spirit is ephemeral: no wave of inspiration lasts for long, and so human beings like to latch onto something solid which represents it -- something tangible. These days, Obama is that symbol for many people. Of course he's just a man, and of course a symbol is not the thing it represents. What's needed is a kind of awakening about that: for Americans to reconnect with the abstract principles that made America great, and let go of getting so worked up about an individual.
  • yes i am totally sick of hearing everything about him lately....media is like "Obama went toilet and crapped 5lbs, obama's wife wore the dress made by bla bla bla..." i cant believe this. Media made him what he is and we all ate the bait, has anyone ever thought why do all the media supports him ? dont you ever think there are somethings hidden beneath this? what does fergie know about politics? but she and all other celebrities supported him like they were playing in an advertisement...i dont like to conspire about things but there is something fishy...
  • I am getting tired of it but today he deserved it.
  • Get used to it. He'll be in the spotlight for at least the next 4 years, and your sour grapes won't change that.
  • I was sick of hearing about him 4 months ago. I can't stand him! And it's NOT because of his race, it's just because I don't like alot of his policies.
  • No. These are interesting times and he is an interesting President. I'm curious about all the moves he's gonna make in these next four maybe eight years. I think maybe you should be too.
  • i love Obama!!!!! I dnt get tired of him
  • LOL.......hell did you get negative points for asking this question ???? I replayed a joke about him from utube and got-points every time you don't say yes sir I love this man he does no wrong you get negative points ...I think its funny .....you are not supposed to have an opinion......it doesn't matter if you voted for him and think he is an ok guy or not you can not say anything on here unless it is Pro Obama and I THINK THAT STINKS!!!!! Boy am I gonna get it for this one..........LoL and they can ALL BITE ME
  • I'm not sick of Obama, I'm sick of the sicophant media making love to him every time they're on the air and with every "Journalistic" word they print. I wish they'd get a room! I'm sick of eveyone saying if you don't support Obama you're a sore loser and anti-American or racist. I'm sick of the same people who bashed President Bush for 8 years are now turning around and saying we need to come together to solve problems. I'm sick, sick, sick of the double standard that makes conservatives always the crazy ones and liberals always the bright, educated, smart and withit ones. GIVE ME A BREAK!!!
  • YES! He's our president, not a celebrity.
  • He is the only politician in the world that has interested me in a long time, but I am happy to hear about none.
  • Yo! Right here. The man is a one-ring circus
  • Yup, he didn't end the raids on medical cannabis dispensaries like he said he would: http://www.answerbag.com/a_view/5385807
  • Not at all! Of all times how could you be 'sick' of such things! its a new beginning, and i think this is very important one. I hope Obama does us proud as we need to be able to have faith in our government at some point! I hope it can be restored at least a little bit now that someone sensible has started running things... :)
  • No I'm not sick of him at all. If I were, I wouldn't ask questions about him or read stories about him. The solution is simple.
  • Yep. Let the guy do his job first before the media and Obamanites immortalize him. The media made him and soon will destroy him.
  • No lets talk about him some more.
  • Probably ex president George Bush.
  • Its going to be a long 4 years. It's already been a long 9 days. Oy vey!
  • Hey after 8 years of watching my vision of a better America shat on by an ignorent hillbilly, reveling in the Obama-Nation is a great relief.
  • After this country being run into the ground for the last eight years, I'm happy someone is going to try to turn things around! As every one of us knows, Bush failed miserably. Lets hope the positive slant on Obama gives the turn-around some momentum!
  • I was a long time ago.
  • He's the President so we're going to hear about him whether we like it or not. What I'm sick and tired of is all of the slobbering and worship. He's the 44th President. There was a 43rd and there will be a 45th - So to the slobbering media and it mindless followers I ask, what's the big deal?
  • Yes it seems people just want to drop his name to be trendy
  • i was sick of it 3 or 4 moths ago. he won the election makin promises no man could live up to. the american population as a whole was stupid enough to believe. this won him the election, this is the downfall of his popularity. the american public was so desperate to fix something that wasnt broken they dug themselves in deeper then will be aknowledged for years to come.
  • Obama is the Messiah! hahahahahah
  • That is the reward and curse of public office , isnt it ?
  • A few days ago, I read that he has made more speaches and more TV appearances than days in office. For me that's over-exposure.
  • He has no experience Im just sick of people making a big deal because hes black so yes I am sick of it, I was when he was elected cause i knew people voted him for being black instead of a man/women with experience. People just don't give a crap about politics and thats why the country is so messed up.
  • First of all, I'm not sick at all. We have needed change for a very long time now. I don't feel that anyone should expect Obama to fix up all the messes that the prior Presidents have created. He's getting exposure because he is actually trying to change things and cares enough to really do something about it. I have seen this President do more in the short period he is in office than some of those that have been in office forever.
  • He is pathetic.
