i believe they reacted positively because he said what everyone wanted to hear. but he continues on the socialist track after the speech. he refuses to let his idea of health care reform die. the only reform we need is the frivolous law suits must be stopped. the only problem with our health care is the costs. that is always driven up by the costs of liability insurance the doctors and hospitals have to pay. how can a person who makes 50,000 a year sue for 5 million because he had his appendix out instead of his tonsils. it's insane.
the spending and taxation will continue to rise and after all is said and done, he will fail as president if it continues. uncle harry will dump on him as will auntie nancy. his supporters will look away in shame and his opponents will laugh with glee.
if he reads and understands the constitution, then abides by it, most all americans will see that he was a successful president. maybe his advisers should tell him that, but that would take them off course for their agenda.
