Or maybe, with their similar policies, Carter and Obama will finish in a tie. For that to happen, Obama would need to dramatically improve.
Another fox news lover bashing President Obama with absolutely no sound basis. Why not try giving facts you can back up.. At least then you might have an argument for your disdain of the the president.
#2 Mar 9, 2010
Steve... that is the Fix News way. Distort, confuse, scare, label and when it's time to back up those assertions with facts... blame the facts. They have no interest in fixing problems. They only have an interest in putting a spotlight on a problem, making you afraid of it and than telling you who is to blame for it.

"I wonder how much could be saved if government employees drove their own cars to work, maintained their own vehicles, bought their own car insurance and bought their own gas the way most of us employed and getting taxed-to-death people do.
There shoul be a law that ANYBODY who is issued a state car and is convicted of a DUI loses that car.

Jay Davis - it's refreshing to see you get two letters to the editor published in a four day span. You must have greased the wheel very well over there who report to folks in the land of Iowa by the Sea....
Why is it that you seem to live in a culture driven by opinion polls?
Declaring your opinion of Obama, well there’s nothing anyone can do about that. Except that there is no basis of fact to support your opinion. The only way to determine that is to let the cards play out.
#6 Mar 10, 2010
It's so cute the way you demand facts while sucking on your sippy cup full of that Fox News kool aid!
#7 Mar 10, 2010
Facts, Facts, How about this fact, the federal deficit will grow by $9 trillion over the next decade. You guys cried about the spending that Bush did over eight years but Obama can spend trillions and it no big deal to you guys. You guys are nothing but a bunch of MSNBC hypocrites. No but told him to pass the stimu-less bill.

I can give you quite a few reasons Obama deserves the scrutiny he's receiving :
1) Obama has extended the US Patriot Act and other anti-constitutional legislation passed down by the Bush Administration
2) Obama has extended the war in Afghanistan and increased the number of defense contractors in Iraq
3) Obama said there would be transparency in his administration...there has not.
4) Obama said he was going to rid Washington of lobbyists and turned around and filled key administration positions with former lobbyists from Raytheon and Monsanto
5) Obama is continuing the practice of rendition
6) Obama has increased the defense budget beyond the amount spent by the Bush Administration
7) Obama said he was going to close Gito...that has not happened
8) Obama has given more regulatory power to the private Federal Reserve
9) Obama has pushed the agenda of Health Care "Reform" down the throats of the American people, even if the majority don't want it ("We The People?")
10) Obama's administration have awarded Blackwater / Xe another contract, even if there's evidence of murder on behalf of that particular company.
11) Obama is spending this nation into oblivion with the good chance for inflation / hyperinflation in the next 2-4 years.
I didn't like Bush...I don't like Obama...
NOBODY is above scrutiny!

What a joke.
#11 Mar 10, 2010
What kind of FREAKIN idiot actually believes you can spend your way out of debt?
#12 Mar 10, 2010
At this point it seems that President Obama appears to care no more for our Nation, or our children's future,than one might expect from a Calif. Democrat politician. And by now, every one who pays attention knows that ain't much...
#13 Mar 10, 2010
It doesn't matter what party they belong to, they are all guilty of selling this country out to corporate and wall street interests.
You have to move past the party line blame games!
#14 Mar 10, 2010
President Obama, for one.
Funny how for eight years, the usual suspects kept saying that Clinton saved us by eliminating the deficit.
#15 Mar 10, 2010
You are correct, "Obama can" ... has he, no, will he. Will have to wait and see. At least the $$$ he is spending is not to fund the military industrial complex which as nothing to GNP of this country.
"No but told him to pass the stimu-less bill." - And had he not I'm sure you would be the first screaming bloody murder when the Country falls in to a full on depression. It's all so very very simplistic to you isn't it.

Obama seeks increase in Defense spending
The Obama administration Monday requested a $708.2 billion defense budget for fiscal 2011, plus an additional $33 billion to pay for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan for the remainder of the fiscal year.
For fiscal 2011, the request includes $548.9 billion for the Defense Department's base budget -- an $18.2 billion, or 3.4 percent increase, over fiscal 2010 enacted levels -- as well as $159.3 billion to pay for the wars.
Controversial Blackwater Security Firm Gets Iraq Contract Extended by State Dept
The State Department has extended a contract with controversial private security firm Blackwater, ABC News has learned. The contract was due to expire this month.
What did you say about Obama not funding the Military Industrial Complex?
#17 Mar 10, 2010
Why didn't you give equal scrutiny to '43? You say you don't like Bush? I find that hard to believe. I'll bet you even voted for him... Twice!
Here's some scrutiny for ya:
1) Bush wages war against an independent country for no reason.
2) He does this being the aggressor, and not in defense of the United States.
3) Bush "rejects" the assessment of someone who's function is taking ground in combat in favor of his own beliefs.
4) Bush rejects the findings of the UN inspector, Hans Blix.
5) Bush rejects the objects of countries such as France, Russia and Germany that questions the "intelligence" of the US.
6) Bush can't achieve his objectives other than to get Saddam.
7) Bush promises the conflict will be quick. But it lingers on after his term. Bush leaves our boys "twisting in the wind."
8) How many years and how many casualties did it get before President Bush realized it was actually an insurgency?
9) Russia invades, Georgia, our "friend" and has harsh words for Russia. Then simply send humanitarian aid to Georgia after getting Russian permission (ie... kow tow.)
10) N Korea shoots missile over Japan. Bush wants to "talk" about it.
11) The unemployment rate is over 50 percent higher than when he took office in 2001.
12)During Bush's term real wages decreased, as did the stock market. Neither of this had occurred during the 3 administration preceding '43.

The "depression" is going to hit no matter what. Just putting off the inevitable is going to make the suffering harder down the line. You can't prop up a broken economic system based off worthless fiat money printed by a cartel of private bankers (The Federal Reserve) and expect the problems to go away.
#19 Mar 10, 2010
Don't assume things...you know what they say when you ASSuME right?
Why don't I give equal scrutiny to Bush? Um...because I spent 8 years doing it. Now we have a "new" president who's continuing many of the same policies as Bush. If you are still angry for what Bush did, I suggest you support an investigation into war crimes committed by the Bush administration (which there is plenty of hard evidence that could land Bush and Co. in prison for the rest of their lives). Unfortunately Obama tells us to "move forward", essentially covering up the mess and actually continuing many of the unconstitutional actions put forth by his predecessor.
The blood is now on Obama's hands.
Oh and #9 on your list, you are wrong about Russia attacking Georgia:
Speaking at an event organized by the German Marshall Fund in Washington, Ms Rice (Condoleezza) acknowledged that Georgia had fired the first shots in the breakaway region of South Ossetia.
"The Georgian government launched a major military operation into Tskhinvali [the capital of South Ossetia] and other areas of that separatist region," she said.
"Regrettably, several Russian peacekeepers were killed in the fighting," she added.

Hear Ye, hear Ye, this is far the best way to sum up "Change We 'have yet to' Believe In." I voted for change and blah, blah, blah....BOTH FRIGGING PARTIES CAN GO STRAIGHT TO H, E, L, L for giving the NEW NON-HUMAN ENTITIES, corporations/businesses/unions , all the TARP funds so they can do it all over again by perpetrating a fraud about failing.
BOTH parties are to blame people, get it through your ignorant, narrow-minded, religious infected heads.........DUH!!! ONLY "WE THE PEOPLE" CAN DO CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN BY VOTING OUT ALL THE BOZOS IN OFFICE AND START FRESH WITH NEW BLOOD.
"WE THE PEOPLE, IN ORDER TO FORM A MORE PERFECT UNION....." MEANS THE PEOPLE HAVE TO MAKE THE CHANGES!!!!!
A wise founding father once said, "WE ARE ALL BORN IGNORANT, BUT ONE MUST WORK HARD TO REMAIN STUPID." Benjamin Franklin
