          Wouldn't a crystal ball come in handy! However, we are coming out of the depression (in my opinion what we experienced was a depression not a recession) but I don't expect to see great improvement until next year. During his third year I'm betting that we will be slowly drifting to a boom similar to the 90s.

              Recognize his failure? He has only been president for seven months and people are starting to call the poor guy a failure. Give him time, I say. The fact that the bleeding is slowing down is a very good sign. If he was failing the bleeding would worsen and he's done more in seven months than the Bush administration has done in four years (except wage a useless, costly war in Iraq that was beneficial to a select few). If we're still in the same predicament at the end of next year, then I'll start considering his administration a failure but the economy is starting to turn so I wouldn't bet against him just yet.

        Then maybe you should think about what you are voting for instead of jumping on the bandwagon because, hell, "everybody's doing it." If you liked Obama's ideas before, but not anymore, you just weren't paying attention the first time, because they haven't changed. Read the newspaper or something.

    I didn't vote for him so I can't say whether I'm sorry or not. I would like to add that everyone knew that Obama's polls would decline (he was so high up, he had nowhere to go but down). So, I am not at all surprised. Declining polls are no stranger to the American Presidency. Every president has things they want to accomplish (usually differs somewhat from promises and ideas on the campaign trail). You can't please everyone.

    Instead of focusing on poll numbers, I believe it is important to look to the issues that are causing the decline; i.e. the "health care"/health insurance bill being discussed is certainly one of them.

    1. easyspeak profile image73

      Yep, Obama knew his poll numbers would decline and so did every remotely intelligent political observer.  People who think it was a surprise don't know politics, and pundits on TV who were surprised shouldn't be on TV.

      Poll numbers, just like people's sentiments at any given time, can and will shift like the wind...as evidenced by this forum.

          Bush's approval ratings dropped from the lower 90s after 9/11 to the lower 30s by the end of his presidency. Last time I checked, Obama's approval rating was nowhere near the 20-something points it would be after a 60 point drop.

      That depends entirely on him. There are certain things he could do that would lose my respect, like giving into conservatives and taking a public plan out of the health care reform, or starting an unprovoked war with, for example, Iran, but I do not expect him ever to reach the dismal levels of President Bush!

      I'm one of the few who can honestly say I hated Bush from the start. On his very first day in office he started by demolishing some protected wilderness areas and cutting funding to women's health organizations. I had disliked him during the campaign, but that made it hate at first day. The environment and women's rights are my two main issues.

        He and his administration keep on repeating the same mantra that, If the GOP has a better idea on how to fix Health care they should speak up. They keep speaking up on what they would do to fix it but not one robot on the left acknowledges them at all. As a matter of fact when was the last time Obama debated anything he proposes??? NEVER!  He does not accept criticism. He just wants to shove his agenda down our throat.

    I never expected him to be a radical, I just thought he was the best man for the job and I still do think that he was and is the best man for the job. I feel much like Kerry--I'm not happy with how he's handling the financial sector, especially the banks and Wall Street, but other than that he's pretty close to exactly what I expected.

    I think Americans expect too much from Presidents and are kind of immature in some ways about the POTUS, treating the President like a rock group they love one week and get sick of the next because the song is on the radio too much.

    We'd all do better if we quit attacking persons and focus more on issues. Obama is a centrist guy but people act like he's this fire breathing leftist because they listen to cable news and talk radio instead of looking at his actual record. smile

      I hope its not the norm , but I wish more people would support Pres O simply because he the man that won on the day ,and sworn in.

        If you don't want the headache, don't take the power.  Our president today is nothing like a sitting president was a century or so ago.  Over the last century, they've claimed more and more power over the national life.  With power comes headaches.  I find it a bit ironic that all of these guys sell their souls for ultimate power and find nothing but arguments, backstabbing and politicking at every turn.  It would make for great reality TV if the consequences didn't impact the lives of each and every one of us.

            How is it not relevant?  Kennedy was an idiot.  Governments are instituted among men to secure the blessings of liberty not to take them away.  Invariably that's what we've seen over the last century.  People only have to respect their government while that government safeguards their liberty.  Once that goes, it's all about over for that form of government.

                What history book did you find that in?  Johnson passed the Civil Rights amendment, not Kennedy.  In fact Kennedy was sitting on the bill until after his reelection campaign.  That's why he was in Dallas that day.  It was a trip to shore up support among Democrats in the South.  Truman got rid of segregation in the Army and Johnson made it illegal in civilian life.  I don't see a Kennedy anywhere in that.

    That, in and of itself, is a HUGE responsibility. Repairing 8 years of international buffoonism and bullying. And yet, Obama and his emissaries (the Clintons) are out there doing just that.

    What DOES America wish to be seen as? A nation of fickke, immature whiners with low delay of gratification? We have become a nation of "I want it all and I want it NOW." Sorry, the economic mess we are in cannot be turned around on a dime.

    I give Obama high marks for prioritizing. He has some very large issues to contend with and knows enough not to try to tackle them all at one time. If he didn't inherit the mess Bush left, we'd probably see a lot more forward rogress on HIS agenda already.

    When I was a kid (pre-Kennedy assassination) the President was like God or something. You would no more disrespect the President than spit on your teacher or your priest. After Nixon and Viet Nam all that changed.

    I'm not saying that it would be good to go back to an uncritical, flag-waving period in history but it would be nice if people just regained some manners and some maturity.

    The President isn't our daddy and he can't wave a magic wand and create the USA in his own image--that's not even his job. I'd like to see Americans demand more of Congress and get more involved personally in what they believe in. Take some personal responsibility instead of always going on attack mode and blaming the President.

        He's not shutting them up. They're actually shutting other people up by coming to town hall meetings and shouting down anyone who has a question that doesn't agree with their agenda, which is to disrupt and intimidate. Also, taking responsibility means educating yourself to the point where you understand the issues instead of letting some corporate lobbying group put words into your mouth.

    Does anyone else get the impression that the Republicans didn't try too hard to keep the Presidency?  I'm not an expert on politicians, but Sarah Palin wouldn't be many people's choice if pushing candidates for the richest country in the world.

    Considering what went on during the "troubling" 8 years of Dubya's War of Terror, it might be possible that a "smash and grab" went on; achieve a set of financial and social objectives then get the hell out of there.  It'll be interesting to see who was connected to the Bush family and who benefitted from the Iraq war in terms of military contracts and oil.  Plus, if you look at how many privacy rights have been surrendered in the wake of 911... well, almost seems deliberate.

    "He (Obama) also disputed the notion that adding a government-run insurance plan into a menu of options from which people could pick would drive private insurers out of business, in effect making the system single-payer by default.

    As long as they have a good product and the government plan has to sustain itself through premiums and other non-tax revenue, private insurers should be able to compete with the government plan, Obama said.

    "They do it all the time," he said. "UPS and FedEx are doing just fine. ... It's the Post Office that's always having problems."

    I'm not an American (and I don't live in the U. S.) so I do not have the right to vote for Obama or McCain. My post may be a little bit naive but I just can't help it. Isn't 6 months too short a time to regret voting for a guy who became president under very difficult / different economic circumstances? I mean we are all in the middle of a recession, the likes a lot of us have never seen in our whole lives, which put Obama (and any other president for that matter) under extreme pressure to perform well? Our previous president was like that, very high expectations, well-loved by the masses, very good speeches, words, etc., etc. but he also came in after a severe Asian crisis - after less than 3 years, we booted him out. Will the same thing happen here (hope not and don't think so)?

      Politics isn't the only endeavor where 'a whole bunch of guys' pretend to know what they are doing, if you know what I'm saying...

      You're always gonna waste your time with some, sexkitten, wink.  Others, not so much.  You've just got to be choosy, in voting... or otherwise.

              Who are you referring to?  I am definitely a woman.  If you look at my profile you can tell.  I actually post lots of pictures of myself, and videos.  I am so not a guy.

    I know. You are one scary lady!!!
    Maybe they are all out boning up on the topic so they can speak more knowledgeably later!
    I gotta go. Gotta watch some of these town meetings where the Democrats are ostensibly hiding behind "Mafia" types and planting people in the audience. Ha ha.
    Final thought (or question) for the night:
    How can the same people who call Obama a Communist also now call him a modern day Hitler? Am I crazy, or is that the most ludicrous accusation yet???
    Arrgggh.

    Well, I did vote for president Obama, and I'm still happy that I did. Considering the 8 yr hole that our country is in it's going to take some time getting out of.

      It's his deficit now. 400% more deficit spending than Bush and it only took 6 months.

      Own the guy if you voted for him. At least take that much responsibility.

      There was a 90% chance you voted for Obama, now I'm waiting for you to call me a racist. It's pure fact, with nothing meant to you personally. What has he done for you so far? Do you know anyone that has lost a job? What industry is now thriving under him or which will? Don't answer GREEN,there is no definition for that. Think Gitmo, Iraq, Afghanistan; what does he follow through with? Even Independent's and Democrat's are falling off the bandwagon.

      All the man can do is read. Who writes these bills, check The Appollo Alliance.
