If she lives another year or two, she'll see The Second Great Depression thanks to Obama's incompetance and inexperience.

The depression will stem from the George W. Bush era. Hopefully Obama can curve this depression. Perhaps Obama can take some of the wealth from his new taxation policy from the people who voted Bush in and use it to minimize the impact of the war and the down turn of the economy.

Lets face it, the problem started before Bush. Remember Clinton. You even hear hard core libs say it. Obama won and lets support our new President. These are times that we should stand together and make sure our voices are heard.

Barack Hussein Obama II is NOT a black man, or an african american, or a N__R. He is an oreo with a white mother that he hates along with all white people. This is odd since his dead-beat father left him at a young age and his mother set him up with her parents.

All this 'first black pres' stuff is hilarious.

I believe Clinton signed the papers allowing credit to families who could not afford it. His party pushed it

Get a grip people. There isn't much difference between the Republicrats or Democans.

As long as the Federal Reserve wields their power without having to answer anyone this country will continue on a downward spiral.

You mean thanks to Bush's INCOMPETANCE! Obama is just trying to figure out how in the hell he can fix 8 years of all the shit Bush let happen! It's funny how some one can say they will make abortion illegal and not even carry out with it he had 8 years to do that! AnD why because he new he would get the popular vote. Behind americans backs he was just screwing us over!

I supported Obuma and I am sorry I did. Why? Because he is in way over his head. He cares a lot more about golf that about the good of our country.

Lord help us.

Didn't vote for him either time, but I honestly don't think anyone would have made a difference! When you have 51% of American public on some form of Fed money,(including Earned SS) leaves 49% working to pay the bills! Only gets worse from here.

Except he's taken about half of the vacation days as "W" did(during a war and collapsing economy). You can look that up on W's Library website.

Anyone remember the second worst president in the history of this country next to Obama named Carter. Needless to say, liberal policies never work.
