In the short period of 45 days, Obama has added more to the deficit than George Bush did in 8 years. He's going to take your money, give it to lazy pieces of sh...(Spreading the Wealth). Lets give these same lazy aholes health insurance too (You and I also to pay for). The stock market continues to decline, now 32% since Obama was sworn in. Continue to let illegals enter the country and do nothing about. Oh wait a minute. Now Obama wants to give them not only tax benefits when they don't pay taxes, but social security benefits too. What were you idiots that voted for him thinking? I don't hear much from you now. No surprise here. Obama, tap your idiot friends like Sean Penn and Oprah, re-distribute their wealth, not mine.

Social Security benefits to illegals?? Ah... you got an that told you that. Did you look into it? Check if it's true? Verify?
Of course not. Because if you attempted to, you'd find out it isn't true.
Not that little stuff like dishonesty ever stops morons like you from spreading garbage.
Your lack of credibility negates your entire ridiculous post.

Obama's budget for thia year - which was written by Congress BEFORE he even took office - along with the economic stimulus package will add an estimated $1.37 trillion to the national debt. That is LESS than the $4.3 trillion added during Bush's 8 years.

Obama is the current president and he must stop campaigning and start leading. He needs to stop blaming the previous administrations.

He must focus on the banking crisis and stop diverting our attention and trillions of OUR money to pet pork projects and his obvious obsession with Rush Limbaugh.

Eventually the taxpayers' ability to pay for these projects will dry up. There will be no more money for the government.

He, his administration, and Congress act and our markets react.

He attacks corporations, he attacks those who've worked hard to accumulate wealth for their families (good for them!), he attacks the banking industry, he attacks taxpayers by raising taxes.

I really liked Obama.... what a star... captivating... well educated... hmmm a centrist too.

Gezzz I forgot to look at his track record though. I thought it was right wing a ding lies about him being a leftist liberal. Then again, I voted for Blago too....

Folks, I sincerely fear we are at a cross road. The America you & I grew up in versus a socialist hand-out (not hand up) big brother owned society. Is it really time for true American rooted philosophies to be laid down forever? We have allowed our root values to be chipped away at since the 70's really. Religin, life, welfare, education, security and even death-taxing. I am a typical American, second generation imigrant background, raised as a blue collar democrat, forced to go to a catholic school (grin), a boy scout, a war veteran, a GI Bill college education, a home owner, father of two.... I passed through many things here and not realizing what divine gifts they were.

My children will never see the America I saw it seems. Then again maybe they never did. I recall my son saying, if you spank me, my teacher said I should call the police. I laughed that comment off. Boy my dad would have shown him a different response that I did. But thinking clearly now, his response was yet an example of a different indoctrination in life then I had. Today we have allowd a box to be placed on a cross to cover it up in California (google that). Chipping away yet one more root value. Today illegal alien means free medical, in state college tuition, voting and constitutional rights. Another chiping away at common American sense.

Now we have Obama, Pelosi and Reid pretty much controling which direction this country will continue in. Oh yeah, lets use the fairness doctrine to block oposing views to socialism. Lets blame Bush for everything too... that had a ring to it. Wait a minute, Obama will change things. Is this the change you thought it would be?

I do find it very intriguing that he has an obsession with Rush Limbaugh! That is hilarious. What is he afraid of? While I don't always agree with Rush and consider him an entertainer at times, I do agree w/Rush that Obama is not doing well in instilling confidence in the American people. Barry is all of the sudden preaching gloom and doom...where is the hope he had a few short months ago? His message is doing a lot of damage (look at the markets!) and I think he realizes his mistake and lashes at Rush for being correct on ths one.

The great leader isn't leading. He is a pawn of the dem party, playing their game, getting sucked into it instead of bringing the change he had promised. What a huge disappointement for those who had high hopes.

DIVORCE AGREEMENT
Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives,
socialists, Marxists and Obama supporters, etc.:
We have stuck together since the late 1950's, but the whole of
this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce. I know
we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but
sadly, this relationship has run its course. Our two ideological sides of
America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right so let's just end
it on friendly terms. We can smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable
differences and go our own way.
Here is a model separation agreement:
Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass
each taking a portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two
sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be relatively
easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since
both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.
We don't like redistributive taxes so you can keep them. You
are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU. Since you hate guns and war,
we'll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA and the military. You can keep
Oprah, Michael Moore and Rosie O'Donnell (You are, however, responsible for
finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all three of them).
We'll keep the capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical
companies, Wal-Mart and Wall Street. You can have your beloved homeless,
homeboys, hippies and illegal aliens. We'll keep the hot Alaskan hockey
moms, greedy CEO's and rednecks. We'll keep the Bibles and give you NBC
and Hollywood.
You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we'll retain
the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us. You can have the
peaceniks and war protesters. When our allies or our way of life are under
assault, we'll help provide them security.
We'll keep our Judeo-Christian values... You are welcome to
Islam, Scientology, Humanism and Shirley McClain. You can also have the U.N...
But we will no longer be paying the bill.
We'll keep the SUVs, pickup trucks and oversized luxury cars.
You can take every Subaru station wagon you can find.
You can give everyone healthcare if you can find any practicing
doctors. We'll continue to believe healthcare is a luxury and not a right.
We'll keep The Battle Hymn of the Republic and the National Anthem. I'm
sure you'll be happy to substitute Imagine, I'd Like to Teach the World
to Sing, Kum Ba Ya or We Are the World.
We'll practice trickle down economics and you can give trickle
up poverty your best shot. Since it often so offends you, we'll keep our
history, our name and our flag.
Would you agree to this? If so, please pass this plan along to other
like minded liberal and conservative patriots and if you do not agree, forget about it.
In the spirit of friendly parting, I'll bet you ANWAR which one of
us will need whose help in 15 years.
P.S. Also, please take Barbara Streisand & Jane Fonda with
you.

WOW...igottaguyy, that sounds perfect to me. I will personally pay for 20 u-hauls to move 20 liberal leftists to their new homes in their new land. I bet if we put this out we can find enough Americans to pay for enough moving expenses that we can move them all free of charge.

Lots of big talk here. Anyone want to offer concrete solutions to issues where you think Obama has failed so far? Something other than "Let's kick out everyone who doesn't agree with me because I'm terrified of anyone outside my race/religion/mindset?".. ........Hello?? Hello??........Thought so.

Big talk? Race? Religion? Wipe the sand out of your eyes, Rip VanWinkle.

This crisis began unfolding before Obama took office, and there are many players on both political sides of the aisle who share the blame then, and now.

WE DON'T HAVE THE MONEY FOR ALL THESE PROGRAMS!

The focus must be on the banking crisis right now. If that is not corrected, then no other programs will succeed. Our house is burning down and rather than put the fire out, our current government is out buying furniture!!

We can't just print more and more money. Eventually it will be worth nothing.

Hey, I'm not the crackpot who wants to divvy up the country as a solution, so don't call me Rip Van Winkle.

So you've provided me with a partial answer, thank you: the banking system has priority.

What do you feel is the best way to approach this problem?

Sometimes I feel so alone. I can't believe who we have as president of this nation. Am I the only one who sees us as the USSA? Obama is a disaster, and it will be too late very soon here if people do not wake up! I feel sorry for my children and grandchildren. For those who worried about the debt before, this idiot was elected in, look at it now! The people, who for the most part, are educated and pay into the system are being punished. If the stock market is just a "political tracking pole" as Obama stated, then I say he is a giant FAILURE...

Why should we, the people who gave up money and time from our lives and family to get an education provide for those who did not! This is America. We should have one flat tax. Those who make more money will still be paying more..I hope this man gets impeached.

Obama is trying to put out 4 burning houses,he has enough water to put out 2.He then uses up the water sprinkling it over all of them and in the end saving none.FOCUS on Banks,nothing will work in buisness unless this is under control.The banks are the first rungs of the ladder,they need to be in place before you can even think about climbing.Yes it will cost bigtime the taxpayers will get hit,however, we are going to get hit anyway at least make something work.

The first thing President Obama needs to do is to quit addressing the nation unless he has something positive to say. Each time he takes to the airwaves and announces the economy is in the toilet, the markets crash. It is a self fulfilling prophecy. He needs to do with the economy what he did in his election speeches, address those points beneficial to him (or in this case beneficial to the country). If he instills some sense of stability, some will feel it may be the time to reinvest. This would be an easy way of making a small positive change without costing the taxpayers anything. The next thing he has to do is address one issue at a time. You can't claim the economy is critical while increasing spending an passing bills with unnecessary projects. First address the economy. When that problem is stabilized, then move on to other pet projects such as healthcare, education, etc.

Look... Your from Illinois. Tell me what business, town, city or state budget management experience he has? Why would you hire a speaker to do heart surgety on an ecconomy? He goes to his mates for help and mone of them have paid their own tax's? All you have left is balme Bush... When you're done with that, or if I borrow a phrase from my uncle.... Blame bush in one hand and poop in the other. Watch which pile gets bigger. All the nonsense he advertised was just that.

You are exactly right. My last post pretty much sums up the only positive acts he can do. He needs to play to his strengths. His strengths are he is a great orator. Other than that he has big ideas and an empty wallet. He needs to show confidence in the country rather than saying how the economy is in the toilet due to the Bush Administration. If he shows confidence, maybe some of the Obamination will follow suit.

First thing Obama must do is let the companies that are illiquid fail. Plain and simple. No money to keep open zombie banks or insurance companies. So far he and the fed have thrown TRILLIONS down a rat hole with absolutely nothing to show for it but a mountain of debt which will need to be repaid by Americans sometime in the future. He must call on the FBI to investigate and prosecute all those who made false satements like, "Our institution is rock solid, and we have no need for a capital infusion!", and then two days later say they are going belly up. Well, that CEO just got out of his long stock position on the bump he created. These banksters need to go jail not to the Hamptons on another new yacht.
All are guilty of mismanagement. That includes Pelosi, Reid, Fwank, and Obama. Until they realise you cannot inflate the credit bubble by giving OUR money away we will be slowly spiraling our way to zero. This SOB thinks it's his money. His plans are redistributionist or communiist. It's my cash not theirs.
