    Oama has been in office one year .Why would you believe that his second year would be.different..

    Obama's administration is one year old today.Obama has broken most of the promises he made during the campaign. Obama would say ''let me be clear '' about bringing change to Washington,the special interests must go, my administration will be transparent and the people will see  what congress is doing and hope is on the way. For all of those promises broken ,i'll give him a ''F'' for honesty and competence.

    If Obama were a wise and humble man, he would realize that it is the job of the president to do the will of the people and the people do not favor his major policy decisions and follow the directives of the people; however, there is yet little evidence that Obama is either wise or humble, and he is most likely to keep pushing the same agendas in spite of how out of touch they are with the people.

    IT WILL BE DIFFERENT THE SECOND YEAR BECAUSE HIS OPPOSITION GROWS.THOSE WHO VOTED FOR HIM ARE BEGINNING TO SEE HE ONLY WANTS TO DEMORALIZE OUR COUNTRY AND AT THE LEAST DIMINISH THE CONSTITUTION, IF NOT DESTROY IT ALTOGETHER. THOSE WHO WANTED THE CHANGE ALSO WANTED THE DOLLAR BILLS. I HEARD PEOPLE SAY THAT THEIR GAS WOULD BE PAID FOR AND THEIR MORTGAGES WOULD ALSO BE PAID BY THE GOVERNMENT. "WOW A FREE LIFE WHERE I WILL NEVER HAVE TO PAY FOR ANYTHING BUT MY WANTS. ALL MY NEEDS WILL BE GIVEN TO ME." IDIOTS!!!! A GOOD LIFE IS GOT BY WORKING AND REAPING THE FRUITS OF YOUR LABORS. THE SOCIALIST LIFE HE PUSHES FOR LETS OTHERS REAP THE FRUITS OF YOUR LABOR.
    I TOLD ONE OBAMA SUPPORTER, " DON'T SEND YOUR MONEY TO THE GOVERNMENT, JUST COME AND PAY MY BILLS AND ELIMINATE THE MIDDLE MAN." THEY GOT ANGRY, BUT MY POINT WAS THAT THIS INDIVIDUAL MADE 4 TIMES WHAT I MAKE AND OBAMA WANTS HIM TO PAY MY WAY.
    HOW MANY OF YOU OUT THERE GOT THE STIMULUS CHECKS? HOW MANY SENT THEM BACK? I DID, EVERY ONE OF THEM.MY WIFE AND I MADE ABOUT $10,000 LAST YEAR. THEN WE BOUGHT OUR HOME, AND WERE OFFERED ABOUT $6,200 FROM THE GOVERNMENT BECAUSE WE BOUGHT THE PLACE. I TOLD THEM TO KEEP THE MONEY. I WOULD RATHER BE HOMELESS IN A STRONG COUNTRY THAN BE "RICH" IN A DICTATORSHIP

    Obama just finished his '' State of the Union '' speech to congress and the American people. The president still doesn't get it and continued with hocus pokus and fuzzy math on his policies.

    The speech was all about himself on how he inherited a mess from the previous administration.The $787 billion bill approved by congress is up to $850 billion.Under his direction government spending was increased 10%, please note that unemployment in government jobs is only 3% while in the private marketplace it  is over 10.6%.

    A fact that he always fails to tell the American people is that he was in congress (during G. Bushes term ) and that his party ( the democrats ) had majority control of congress in the last two years of the Bush administration.
    Note that when the republicans were in control, unemployment was 4.6%. .From 2007 to dec.2008 when the Dem's were in control unemployment rose to 6.5%..
    Obama promised that if the $787 billion stimulus was approved unemployment would not go above 8%.
    Can the American people trust anything that this president does judging by his performance to date?

    I think he will have a harder time. This is because the Republicans have opposed everything he proposed. Most blame him for the unemployment situation in this country which started during President Bush.


    Corporations and rich individuals who are capable of paying more taxes to reduce the deficit are holding several trillions of dollars and are not willing to invest in our economy.  To make things worse the Republicans do not even want the public sector to invest in local jobs either. They are trying to reduce the government which will reduce more jobs and create more unemployment that will make the economy worse. Then who is going to spend or invest in our economy so that it can recover?  Obama has the answer, however, the Republican don’t have answers. Somehow they seem insane enough to believe that cutbacks promote economic recovery. Their solution is blaming the President and making everything worse.

    We need more government jobs in many areas. We need more enforcement along our southern borders. We need to expand enforcement against Medicaid and Medicare fraud. We need renew our crumpling infrastructure. We need to invest in education. All this will add jobs to will rejuvenate our economy even our private sector. These jobs will pay for itself many times over while economy improves. This will help the economy recover and eventually reduce the deficit.

    We need to increases taxes on the top 2% and for corporation with colossal profit. Stop subsidizing wealthy oil companies and we will reduce $ 6.3 billion from the budget deficit The Republicans don’t like to that instead they rather cut the life line on those who are unemployed or sick.
