I am confident the economy will turn around, and Obama will help. Always remember that the economy will change for the better. It always does and this is just a phase. Try to remain optimistic, as hard as it is with the press scaring everyone. People also need to know that they can get help with all bills and debts. As just one example, federal gov't FHA, JPMorgan Chase, and Bank of America/Countrywide have committed to helping over 1.2 MILLION HOMEONWERS between them keep their homes. There is help for utility bills and credit cards as well. I found more info on many the programs and companies here.

As a blackman I am scared of Obama he is nothing but a Chicago thug that has not kept any of his promises in Illinois how can he keep them across the Nation. He is slick engough to win an election, but he has no track record of success as an executive anywhere, this is on the job training for him at our expense. This is not reality tv this is the real thing. He may turn out to be the Kimbo Slice of Presidents. I hope not but he sure quacks like a duck.

Let's not cry for Obamentina. He wanted the job. He knew what he was getting into. So let him do his job without the media publishing current situations that offer escape routes for any failures that will occur. If he can't cut it, then he and his cohorts should not have run in the first place, and if so, they never should have bad-mouthed anyone else over it.
It sounds exactly like California's governor who chastised the former governor to get the job only to do a worse job than his predecessor did.
