          Try the government website that tracks where the stimulus money is going. There were 405 districts that received stimulus money that don't exist, wow.

          $ 787 BILLION IS NOW UP TO $825 BILLION  and still we have over 9.7% out  of work, what happened to those shovel ready jobs ? I wasn't aware that policeman, fireman, teachers and other public servants need shovels to perform.

          I AM SURE YOU WILL NEVER SEE THAT REPORT ON ABC,NBC,CBS,CNN,MSNBC OR PBS
          Wake up America , the Obama administration isn't telling the American people the truth.

    3. he promised he would be different, and he's not
    4. Americans feel like government is getting WAY too big
    5. people like Pelosi and Soros make him look bad
    6. he's too thin skinned
    7. he's black - sorry, but it's true. Some people simply don't like him just because he's black

    As for #1 and #2 - depends on which group you talk to!

      On balance i don't mind him, though I am looking from the outside in, but I agree that this whole broken-campaign-promise thing is for the birds... I mean surely "I will be different" includes, "unlike those before me, I won't break my campaign promises." (I am thinking specifically of the notion that he might break the backs of the lobbyists in Washington.)

    The people live in an era of uncertainty just look at the depression and the rise of Nazism.  There are similar twists to then and now. The most notable of these is the uncertain economic future for the working people. This coupled with the fact that people have to deal with the fact at the most powerful man in the world today is a african american, something the world hasn't experienced in modern times.  Once the dust settles and jobs and hope emerges on the horizon things will be different.

    A part of it is that he won and that is the price of victory.

    But in Obama's case, the opposition started the moment he was elected.  I believe some of it is racial, and some of it is that Republicans can't stand losing.  They did the same thing to Clinton.

          I'm a Black Gay Man. The first thing President Obama did to upset me was allowing a homophobic preacher to get up their on the inauguration stage with him.  Then under his watch; Gay men and women are still being thrown out of the military. He fell into a coma right in the middle of the health care debate. And he came to New York and interfered with our elections. So I dont always agree with the man.
          But I know he saved my Country from a depression.  I know he tries to do the right thing as much as politically possible. I know he wants to make this a better Country for all of us.  Most of all; he's just a good man that does not deserve the level of hatred he endured since announcing his plans to run for president.   
          Now you explain the insane hatred of the man with clear, sane, truthful examples of why he deserves so much hatred. And explain how it could be anything but insane racial hatred. And lets have none of what you might consider to be cute little one liners. Their old and tired.

            I'd say an argument can be made that Clinton underwent a similar level of hostility. (I'd add Reagan to that also, but frankly I was too young at the time to be sure about that). Sorry it's a one-liner, but I mean Clinton underwent a fair ordeal on a number of fronts (not saying I'm a fan of the man, just saying, well, he wasn't black).

            ...Although I did hear a black (female) comic once say that the only white men that black people like are Bill Clinton and Bob Barker..., so maybe he was an honorary Black person? wink

            Anyway, yes, some of it is racism, for sure. But not all of it. I don't think that's right...

            ...And don't forget that some people just don't like his POLICIES. Or his CABINET PICKS...

          It's obvious that a significant part of the opposition to Obama is racial. Much of the rest results from Republicans fanning the flames of the Tea Party's toxic mix of anti-tax, anti-abortion, anti-government, anti-gay, anti-immigrant hatred. Whatever your prejudice, come one, come all to the big tent of hate and ignorance.

      The reason there has been so much negativity directed at President Obama is because people are afraid of change especially when it is more than one thing at a time. He has shown that he can make tough decisions even when the decision is not so popular or what everyone wants. With all the nasty hateful talk swirling around the country and all the misinformation spread by FOX NEWS and right wing radio talk shows like Limbaugh, Glen Beck, and others along with Liz Cheney, Sarah Palin, and Michelle Bachman spouting terms like socialist...marxist...nazi...radical...racist...etc.
      There isn't any civility anymore, just hateful partisan rhetoric attacking Obama in an attempt to destroy him. I feel race plays into a lot of the so called grass roots Tea Party hate speech and cowardly violence we've seen recently after the passage of healthcare reform. Come on all you right wing conservatives tell the truth, you don't like Obama because he is not white.

You may be shocked to know (or you may already know) that someone who is ACTUALLY a Leftist (as opposed to the supposed Leftists in the Democratic Party, who are centrists, in fact), ie., Noam Chomsky, would agree with this. He considers the US to be ruled by a one-party state with two arms. And the people are played off one another while the oligarchs retain power... via BOTH major parties...

              This is probably true. I guess the only response I can think of to give (right now) is that this suggests/implies that Democratic supporters are never equally swayed by prejudice of various kinds. This doesn't seem likely; of course race is a particularly important issue in America, given, among other things, the legacy of slavery (in large part the fault of the British in any case, as well as fellow Africans who traded slaves to Europeans.)

              Mmm. I'd say that the Bush administration in general (if not Bush specifically; I guess strictly speaking it is hard to know what he knew) did quite a lot of lying. Don't get me wrong. This was hardly news that an administration would lie to people. Again, across the world you'd have a job to find an honest world leader, I think, whether leftist, right-wing, centrist, or whatever. I am sure Clinton lied about, well, I can think of at least one thing wink. I'm sure they all lie. But I have to say I think the last Republican administration must have broken some kind of record for mendacity. But we'll see; Obama has only been there a year, basically, so, well, time will tell.

        your statement
        all the misinformation spread by FOX NEWS and right wing radio talk shows like Limbaugh, Glen Beck, and others along with Liz Cheney, Sarah Palin, and Michelle Bachman spouting terms like socialist...marxist...nazi...radical...racist...etc.

        Can you point out some of the misinformation, please.
        It's really funny   Glen Beck has a red telephone on stage every program, waiting a call from the white house when and if he reports anything that is incorrect. The white house hasn't called yet !

        Recently  I caught an interview on Fox. News.  President Obama was asked a question regarding the healthcare bill, the president couldn't answer the questions. President Obama started to filibuster going to other subjects.

        I can now understand why the president knocks and discredits Fox News.
        We should all hope that the other news medias would ask tough questions so that the truth will come out of all the mumbo jumbo.
        Let Obama stand on his record of 16 months before condemning him.

        Where are the jobs Mr. President ?

          Where do I start: death panels, gov. takeover of healthcare, cutting Medicare benefits, killing small biz, increasing taxes on people making less than $200,000 per year, and so on. As for the interview on Fox, Brett didn't let the President answer because he continuously interupted Obama. In the 16 months Obama has been in office, he has saved us from a depression, passed healthcare and education reform, passed the Lily Ledbetter Act, and he has tried numerous times to reach across the asile to Republicans. I can see that we have totally ideologies so we will just have to agree to disagree hoprfully agreeably.

    This is not a republican vs. democrat issue. Its not even really an Obama issue. Its a country of people angry and disappointed with our government in general.

    Our constitution which Obama at one time called "an out dated document which needs to be revised states that "WE THE PEOPLE" shall decide what is best for our country! Obama, members of the house and senate are mere servants of the people. It is very obvious that the above mentioned do not view themselves in this manner and have failed to serve!
    They have set themselves up as in manner to suggest that we are on the brink of a kind of dictatorship.
    Not that it should have been any great shock to the masses as it has been.

    And now we are where we are with our government out of control driven mad with power over us and people are scared, disillusioned, and rather pissed off about it!
    So they spout off about Obama regardless of their political party because he is the figure head to point blame. And part of that is justified yet so many forget about the powers that be in the house and senate!

    We were all standing there at the polls with this delicious looking carrot dangling before our noses and chose to bite. Bad, impulsive decision! The real "change" everyone was and is looking for does not come from some arrogant, over zealous liberal spouting "Yes we can!" It comes from US!!!

    I am planning on July 4th our nations independence day, to change my w2 form to 10 dependents. This way I can hurt them where it hurts most: IN THERE POCKET BOOK! lol
    They are not getting a dime from me! It's perfectly legal and my right. Why should they have my tax money? Does it represent me? Do they? NO!

    I encourage you all to do the same and come election time in the words of Donald Trump let's say to them all, "You're Fired"!

      You change your W-2 to 10 dependents (if you don't have 10 dependents) and you commit tax fraud - the same crime that sent Al Capone to federal prison.

      Your rant against the government "brink of a dictatorship" does not support any evidence in support of the claim. None. I presume it's 'dictatorship' in your mind when elected officials vote in a way you disagree with. When that happened under Bush on matters I disagreed with, it was still democracy to me and liberals in general. (Can you find evidence of liberal militias forming inthe Bush years?) A peculiar difference.

      If you don't like how the Congress voted, put up your candidate and convince 51% to vote for him(her).  But the rhetoric about 'dictatorship' brands you as an irresponsible demagogue.

        Aside form the usual silliness of the post i.e. Socialist, Tyrants etc. etc., an individual cannot change their own W-2.  The W-2 is a form that the employer uses to report wages of the individual to the IRS.  The ranter probablty meant a W-4 (it's easy to get confused in the middle of a tantrum)  I don't believe there's any penalty for claiming more dependants on this form than you have, because it doesn't actually affect your taxes owed, only your amount withheld from each paycheck.  The problem will come when the annual taxes are due.  If you have had substantially less withheld than you owe, there are penalties to pay in addition to the taxes.

          This is true.  Some people do not wish to have the govt hold their overpayment interest free.  They need their income week to week.   At the end of the year they need to settle the arrears.


          There is the possibility with the right investments to make a profit on that money before paying up to the IRS.

            I do it myself.  It's crazy to have more withheld just to have a big refund at year's end.  You have to be careful how far you take it though.  If you reduce your withholdings to the point that you owe too much at year's end, you will be charged a penalty.

        actually no it isnt fraud until you actually file then you claim what you normally do. you can claim as many as you want on the w2. Yes you will have to pay eventually when you file but the point is to send a message and there isn't a thing they can do about it, it is perfectly legal plus they won't have the interest on the money. Nice way to protest

            The same radio and TV personalities who tried so hard to make Obama a Muslim so they could put the brainless Sarah Palin in office.  And they succeeded in getting some of their listeners to actually vote in her behalf.  If that isn't scary enough for you, then you must have been one of their victims, right?

              I seen the interview where Obama slipped and said '' I'm a muslin ''. it really don't matter if he is or isn't, what matters is that he lies and don't tell a truthful story. He is on TV , weekly . have you ever wondered why he mentions Fox as an enemy.

              Fox will show past clips of what he says compared to what he says today or yesterday.
              Example about the healthcare bill. He says children with pre existing conditions will be insured with the passed bill, fact is that what he just said don't happen until 2014.
              I seen his interview on Fox with Brett Bair, truly he couldn't give a straight answer. He filibustered and tried to get his propaganda message about another subject. Mr.Bair didn't allow him to use up the time with BS.

              Obama is a progressive liberal union representative in the office of the presidency. Buying our representatives off to get his agenda passed is not something to be proud of.  The procedure is somewhat corrupt.

    The intention is to break up any meaninful discussion and replace it with low intelligence name calling.

    Not to say that Obama is doing a good job, but he is basically just the puppet of a far more powerful force.  The things that he is doing in office have been planned for decades.  The same things would've been said about any candidate. 

    I do disagree with most of his decisions.  His ideas for a better nation are clouded, and he cannot see the down-sides.  However, we elected him, and now we must face the consequences. 

    Good luck, Barack...

    The thing is, people expected milk and honey. Especially after the dry run of George Bush. No one could deliver milk and honey but in their desperation, people believed Obama could. When he could not, as he would not, people got disheartened and soon came to dislike themselves for believing so easily. In a way, instead of deriding themselves, they had latched on to Obama.
