Well well well, everyone is now going to report on President Obama's 200 days in office. I guess he is going to get another "report card." I just like to say a few things, Obama is a great outstanding President. It will take a lot of patients to recover from this bad recession. The American people need to understand that its not just Obama's job for the economy to recover. Its everyone, that includes YOU and ME too. Congress, other government agencies, etc. are all in this together no matter what. If there is no bipartisanship, then forget about recovery and health care reform. If the average American parties every weekend and spends his or her money wildly and uncontrollably on stuff that is not a necessity, like alcohol, drugs, cigarettes, and other stuff that is not a necessity, then that American should not complain or give Obama a bad rating. Its time for ordinary Americans in this country, that is the middle class to start thinking clearly, become more meticulous, patient, and financially responsibile if THEY want to see a change in their life. You cant just point fingers at one man. President Obama has done an A++ job since he has entered office, Believe it or not! I love the man! "YES WE CAN"!!! I cant hear you, I said 'YES WE WILL.'

I support Obama, but I am still feeling like I am, "wait and see". My ultimate fear is that some of his policies are so "liberal" that growing conservative dissent will result in him not being elected for a second term. And I feel that a health care bill is so significant that it should not be rushed, even though it is a very pertinent issue.


oh boy!!!

Exactly, things aren't going to change overnight, it will take time and probably some of the measures might start to give out it's fruits when he is out of office ( say 2016 Big grin )

How about applying for a mortgage you can't afford, and then having the American people pay it for you? That's being MORE irresponsible IMO. YOUR mortgage is not MY problem.

We're all in this together? That would work if this president was actually FOR individual responsibility. Having everyone carry their own weight. Instead, he wants to penalize and tax working people so people that don't work, and don't want to can get everything for free.

I'll agree with you there. I'll point my fingers at Pelosi and Reid too.

Agreed!
So far 1 Republican Senator switched to the Democratic Party (Arlen Specter) and his first US Supreme Court nominee has just been confirmed. I wish him luck on getting health-care passed, turning the economy around, success in Afghanistan and cleaning up Bush's mess in Iraq.

What does that have to do with Obama? It was under Bush that the financial companies were bailed out, not Obama.
I agree that it's irresponsible, but it's just as irresponsible for a company to give you a mortgage you can't afford. How about instead of blaming people and companies for the problems we had we instead focus on making sure it doesn't happen again?

He is going to lose relection because of his own deeds. Not the GOP attitude toward him, though that will be the excuse.

Oh so your telling me if Bush refused Obama would have not done it the second he got in office?  sarcastic 

Only reason Bush did it was he knew the DNC would have as soon as he left and laid the whole mess on him.

I never said it was failed, in fact it made sense to bail out the banks because the risk that they would become profitable again quickly was low though any of the money we gave GM was a waste.

No, stop spinning this. Bush did it because #1 he knew Obama would do it anyway and #2 if he didn't the DNC would have villified him even more and used him as an excuse when their stimilus fails.

From the way Paulsen and Bernanke were talking, that opportunity wouldn't have existed for Obama. Whether he would have or not is irrelevant. At the time it was passed nobody knew Obama would be the next president. Don't try to blame Obama for this one, Bush pushed for it and McCain and Obama voted for it.

Is Barney Frank Barack Obama? You're trying to disprove my statement, but it's a fact that under Bush the financial companies were bailed out, not Barack Obama or Barney Frank.

I must be forgetting the part where Barney Frank forced the President, Treasury and Federal Reserve to push Congress for the bailout package.

Exactly, because quite a lot of the changes allowed for some slower pace. The only exemption for me is Guantanamo. That was a great PR stunt.

Hmm ... the Clinton News Network still seems to have a little bias ... Maybe they still want Hillary in office and Bill as the SOS (noting his recent successful trip to N. Korea and meeting with their leader.)

Well, you need to realize that the first six months of Bush's leadership were filled with nothing. Bush's downfall didn't really start until after the Iraq war started. I don't see this as significant at all. The man inherited an impossible situation that will not be solved in six months. These polls were always biased, even when Bush was president, and if I were you, I wouldn't follow them. Asking 1,000 americans to speak on behalf of about 195 million adult american citizens, is worthless, IMHO.

Okay so Obama got a C on his next report card, who cares, he doesnt care, because he knows that he is doing his best and that he's trying everything he can. Listen it was the lack of patients that caused the worlds deadliest aviation disaster in March of 1977 at Tenerife airport in the Canary Islands when one man, one man, thats right, one man Captain Van Zantan did not have patients and was in a hurry to his final destination, that was death on his KLM Boeing 747. So patients will always be a virtue, so if people dont be patient, then it will only be worse for them.

He will do nothing of the sort in Iraq. Iraq's defining moment was in 2007 with the awaking groups and the troop surge. THAT is what has been successful over there; not anything Obama will do during his term.
