• Well there's nothing any can do for 4 years, so why not give him the 4 years
  • I think it's time→
  • Now and poor.
  • it is being asked ,just highly ignored and it will probably be too late before the majority realizes it made a horrific,shallow MISTAKE....:)
  • The main concern with timing is whether the issues are from the previous administration, and what new issues are from the current administration. The ways of the government take a long, painfully slow time to become obvious, so it does no good to say the ideas aren't working without giving them time to work. That's like looking at a newly planted lawn and saying that still looks like a vacant lot to me. It takes awhile for "things" to actually move.
  • As soon as he gets his 5.00 a gallon gas prices. They're on their way yo...
  • When he is finally doing a bad job. Think, why would conservatives want to talk about the positives of Obama? They need constant negativity about him. If they can''t create negativity out of thin air (which they usually find a way to do), they will just try to discredit the positive things about him until they can find something to go off of. It's ignorance at it's worst.
  • Obama and Congress are trying the same crap that FDR did during the great depression didn't work then its not going to work now. They think there has been progress because only 345,000 people lost there jobs last month yea the economic slow down has slowed down that makes no damn sense.
  • Because it is too soon. What else do you want to hear. Everything you hear right now is just biased opinions
  • When he actually does something other than talk about the situation. He makes lots of good speeches and is great at pressing the flesh . I have yest to see any other results. So although his speech content is not to my liking . It is still too soon to see if it is going to do any good other than giving billions of dollars of aid.
  • You'll have your chance in the year prior to his relection to piss, moan, whine, and bitch, so well as you Republicans always do. Your smear attempts didn't work before the election and they won't work now.
  • very good question he is already struggling with guantanamo bay.but no one says anything
  • Ah well, the truth is, that after Bush2 stole, er, won, first time, I moaned from day 1. And I didn't stop moaning - ever. I am still moaning .... If you're gonna hate someone, not much will change your mind. If you have preconceived notions, again, nothing will change your mind.
  • What's this about his job rating? Are you referring to his job-approval rating? Are there questions about it? It seems fairly simple to me. His ratings are high among Democrats (of course) and Independents; low among Republicans (again, of course). And overall, it's averaged about 62 for several months now.
  • Franklin Bell sure has it right! Franklin T. Bell, CFM, RPA, FMA 7239 Swan Point Way Columbia, MD 21045 April 9, 2009 The White House 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW Washington, DC 20500 Mr. Obama: I have had it with you and your administration, sir. Your conduct on your recent trip overseas has convinced me that you are not an adequate representative of the United States of America collectively or of me personally. You are so obsessed with appeasing the Europeans and the Muslim world that you have abdicated the responsibilities of the President of the United States of America. You are responsible to the citizens of the United States. You are not responsible to the peoples of any other country on earth. I personally resent that you go around the world apologizing for the United States telling Europeans that we are arrogant and do not care about their status in the world. Sir, what do you think the First World War and the Second World War were all about if not the consideration of the peoples of Europe? Are you brain dead? What do you think the Marshall Plan was all about? Do you not understand or know the history of the 20th century? Where do you get off telling a Muslim country that the United States does not consider itself a Christian country? Have you not read the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the United States? This country was founded on Judeo-Christian ethics and the principles governing this country, at least until you came along, come directly from this heritage. Do you not understand this? Your bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia is an affront to all Americans. Our President does not bow down to anyone, let alone the king of Saudi Arabia. You don’t show Great Britain, our best and one of our oldest allies, the respect they deserve yet you bow down to the king of Saudi Arabia. How dare you, sir! How dare you! You can’t find the time to visit the graves of our greatest generation because you don’t want to offend the Germans but make time to visit a mosque in Turkey. You offended our dead and every veteran when you give the Germans more respect than the people who saved the German people from themselves. What’s the matter with you? I am convinced that you and the members of your administration have the historical and intellectual depth of a mud puddle and should be ashamed of yourselves, all of you. You are so self-righteously offended by the big bankers and the American automobile manufacturers yet do nothing about the real thieves in this situation, Mr. Dodd, Mr. Frank, Franklin Raines, Jamie Gorelic, the Fannie Mae bonuses, and the Freddie Mac bonuses. What do you intend to do about them? Anything? I seriously doubt it. What about the U.S. House members passing out $9.1 million in bonuses to their staff members - on top of the $2.5 million in automatic pay raises that lawmakers gave themselves? I understand the average House aide got a 17% bonus. I took a 5% cut in my pay to save jobs with my employer. You haven’t said anything about that. Who authorized that? I surely didn’t! Executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will be receiving $210 million in bonuses over an eighteen-month period, that’s $45 million more than the AIG bonuses. In fact, Fannie and Freddie executives have already been awarded $51 million - not a bad take. Who authorized that and why haven’t you expressed your outrage at this group who are largely responsible for the economic mess we have right now. I resent that you take me and my fellow citizens as brain-dead and not caring about what you idiots do. We are watching what you are doing and we are getting increasingly fed up with all of you. I also want you to know that I personally find just about everything you do and say to be offensive to every one of my sensibilities. I promise you that I will work tirelessly to see that you do not get a chance to spend two terms destroying my beautiful country. Sincerely, Franklin T. Bell, CFM, RPA, FMA cc: Senator Barbara A..

  • The man hasn't even had six months. He's been forced to authorize a budget he didn't want, a surplus he didn't write, and focus all his time on the economic turmoil. Give him another 3-6 months to focus on something other than the economy,and then you can fairly judge his work.
  • I don't think truly he has had time to do much, but I do see him giving away lots and lots of money, that we don't have! Maybe someone should try and get jobs here.. well at least Michelle is making clothes that can't be bought, and he and the girls are getting to see the world!! while the rest of us go hungry..
  • With previous Presidents, it was open season as soon as he took the oath of office. But with Bama, nobody's going to be allowed to say a word until he does enough damage to this country that we won't be able to recover.
  • I think it's soon enough to evaluate the path that he's chosen to try to bring about recovery. The stimulus package is mostly just playing around with the money. It's not really geared to create product. Product is what we lack and is why our economy is failing. Think about it, if we were producing oil for instance, instead of buying it from other countries, how much that could boost our economy. That's just one little thing we could do.
  • When they have an answer for what he has done right. Too soon is just a cop-out.
  • I think it's never to early to ask, but I think it is a little early to reach a firm conclusion. I'm generally pleased with what I've seen so far, but I've got concerns. I think a good milepost for making a more firm evaluation will be when the Congress ends its first session in October/November. By then, we should have some indication of where the economy is headed, what the budget outcome for FY10 looks like, and can evaluate how successful the President was in getting his various legislative proposals through the Congress. (That last item cuts both ways -- if you like them, you'll probably like him, and if you don't, you won't. But I think that's a good opportunity to get a solid read on how he's doing.)
  • when its too late to do anything about the answer
  • Subject: Fwd: An Open Letter to President Obama Lou Pritchett receive this from a former FBI man who is still in the "know". It is right in every respect. Dear President Obama, You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me. You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you. You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support. You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of your youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American. You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll. You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don't understand it at its core. You scare me because you lack humility and 'class', always blaming others. You scare me because for all half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail. You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the 'blame America' crowd and deliver his message abroad. You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector. You scare me because you prefer 'wind mills' to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil,coal, and shale reserves. You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg, which provides the highest standard of living in the world. You scare me because you have begun to use 'extortion' tactics against certain banks and corporations. You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals. You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people. You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient. You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do. You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaughs, Hannitys, O'Reillys and Becks who offer opposing, conservation points of view. You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing. Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.
