I bet he knows that the Dodd-Frank bill, is AKA the-"financial reform law. Maybe you need a little more time to figure that out.

So if his type is already in control what good is Obama. He is not in control according to you so he is not doing his job. Fire him. Vote him out.

And it takes more intelligence than you possess to knnow that no one is harassing you, pointing out your obvious deficiencies is not harasment. Watch the economics of Obama in action this week, look at how well our ducationsystems are doing with his leadership, find me anyone in the medical community (someone who is actually in the community not some academic) that agrees with the president's health plan.

It took 1 1/2 years to get health care reform passed. Just ask the Clintons how amazing it is that Obama got it done at all. It's a shame he had to spend that much time on it, but he fought hard. In the long run, it will save money. Any major change will cost more upon implementation before the savings start showing. So we needed to do it to avoid the massive costs later. It's like getting your oil changed to keep from replacing your engine in the future. You may not be able to afford it, but if you don't do it, the costs will be many times the cost of the initial oil change. Obama is very intelligent at being president. He just seems to be one of the few people with vision. By the way, vision is a major quality of a good leader. It's just a shame he's in the minority in DC. All of our politicians need to have vision, but it just doesn't happen that way. Maybe it's because the voters don't pay attention. I'm voting Obama. You can choose to stay mired in the past if you wish. America gives you that right. It's a changing world. I suggest you pay closer attention.

If Obamacare is so great then why are so many against it? Nothing in life is free. Healthcare cost what healthcare cost. If millions get free healthcare or at least at a reduced rate someone has to pick up all or the rest of the tab. It will be those who the government deems has enough disposable income to afford it whether or not they actually do have enough to afford it. Then you pile higher income taxes on that to pay for the out of control spending and it leaves middle America in the same poverty boat as the poor in this country. The healthcare is just like the rest of Obama's policies, if it was a success the economy would show it. The Jobs Recovery Act would have put people back to work and unemployment would not be on the rise again but it didn't and it is. So what does our president say to calm fears? "I guess the shovel ready jobs weren't as shovel ready as we expected", and he wonders why people have no confidence in his policies. Businesses do what they always do when things are uncertain, they go into self preservation mode and minimize expenses. The easiest expense to eliminate is labor. What is the democratic government's counter to this? Higher taxes on businesses and the wealthy. All this does is cause businesses to tighten up more. This type of governing hurts the middle class the most because they mostly work for someone else and the raised taxes are taken directly out of their checks leaving no power to the working middle class to control how much money they get to keep. This is when liberal democrats go into coverup mode by creating bad feelings between the employer and employee with class warfare. It's what is currently happening and it is just another reason to get Obama out of office. The means may change but the principles of success remain the same so your argument that voting for Obama keeps you from getting "mired" in the past doesn't hold water. But keep telling yourself that if it makes you feel better.

This is just like Secretary of Energy Chu, who knows science very well but has no clue of how to run a business. The end result was a $500 million dollar tax payer grant disguised as a loan to Solyndra. Why? Because Mr. Chu didn't take into account that the American public isn't going to buy into ultra expensive solar panels. Everyone who had any business sense knew that the "loan" was a bad deal but they were ignored because they didn't know enough about the science of solar panels to see just how great they are. I guess common business sense won out on that and the tax payers lost...AGAIN. Miscalculations will be littered throughout Obama's presidency and it should cost him the November elections. He can spin it any way he wants but the people know how his policies have affected them and they don't like it.

These type of things are exactly why Obama is dangerous to America. None of these are policies yet most are still HUGE red flags. I seriously doubt that this is Redd though.

"If Obamacare is so great then why are so many against it"

The poll finds that 40 percent of those surveyed said they support the law, while 41 percent oppose it. Just after the November congressional elections, opposition stood at 47 percent and support was 38 percent.
http://www.cbsnews.com/2100-250_162-7251893.h...

Kaiser's most recent survey, conducted in early March, finds that roughly as many Americans rate the law favorably (41 percent) as rate it unfavorably (40 percent), although over the last year they have typically found negative ratings exceeding positive ones by a few percentage points.

The Senate approved a two-year transportation reauthorization proposal in March, but a number of House conservatives have objected. Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and the conservative Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla).

Boxer and Inhofe are about as far apart as you can get politically, yet they agreed on this bill.

The Speaker of the House will not bring the transportation bill to the floor. This bill would create thousands of construction jobs.

We just had a up tick in unemployment, if you go to the web site of the Bureau of labor, you will see a majority of those jobs lost were construction jobs.

ANY of you anti Obama people care to tell me the benefit of this Non Action of the Republican leadership?

That is the problem with polls. You can never put too much stock in them. If you choose to put stock in them then stay away from left wing or right wing sources. You always jump to left wing sources, most of them far left. Here is an example. Rasmussen reports, which is an independent polling firm, show that 55% of likely voters want the law repealed and that is stronger than just not liking it. The results of any poll depends on what you control for which determines who you can ask. If I asked 1000 likely voters from the KKK who they are going to vote for in the 2012 presidential election what do you think the results would be? I could take the results to a national paper or tv company and the headline would be "Romney a sure bet to beat Obama in November 100%-0% says likely voters". Do you really think that left wing sources, who have admitted wanting to help Obama get re-elected, will poll fairly? Statistics 101: You can control the outcome of any poll by what you control for. You are a fool if you don't learn this one thing about any poll and you will continue to look bad to anyone who already knows and accepts this fact of polls.

Wasteful spending for one. The original proposed six year bill fell short by $12 billion per year so they cut it to two years and shrank the overall bill to $109 billion still leaving a $6 billion shortfall of funds. The only mechanism that was listed to bridge that gap was an increas in the federal tax on gas. How do you think that will go over with voters? You do realize that we have to pay for these programs with tax payer dollars don't you. With real unemployment at 25%+ tax dollars are in short order.
