    Do you feel sorry for barack obama?

    Did he became president in wrong time?...should he have opted for 2012 for first term?...

    Yes and no.  I think you've got to be a little bit crazy to run, but I also don't think he was qualified.

    I believe he thinks he is doing a good job.  I don't feel sorry for him, but I do wish he would find something else to do rather than be our president!

    No I don't feel sorry for him, he is a tough man.  He rose to where he is. He doesn't care about the naysayers. He just does his job. Of course, America is one big epic fail anyway - not his fault.

    No I do not. Most presidents come into office with some challenges on the table, this one was no different. This one made some decisions and directed some actions which were driven by those who whisper in the King's ear. If you have any doubt in that, keep in mind that George Soros predicted that a stimulus package of at least $600 billion would be passed by Congress...he predicted that before the 2008 elections.  Obama has created much of his own misery through a long series of bad choices which are indicative of his ability to lead. Unfortunately, he tends to lean toward a socialistic solution for all things...big government.  Government is not the solution...it is the problem in far too many cases.  We have an out of control financial situation in America which is being batted around in the political arena. We have a critical problem with immigration and the President sees the highest level of urgency as sueing the State of Arizona. We have huge energy problems and the President's mind in on green energy sources which are far from viable at this point and on investment in countries like Brazil who are more interested in selling crude oil to China than the USA.  Obama energized a voter base with the unspoken promise of providing benefits which those people desired. He continues to court large unions with taxpayer money to gain voter blocks.  He is basically leaving the hard decisions to the conservative side in the hopes that they will also be blamed for the decisions. In the process, the American economy is continuing to lag, energy costs are going through the ceiling with no domestic response in place, and we continue to hear only talk of "reforming" our society for immigration rather than securing our borders.  Do I feel sorry for Obama...absolutely not. Do I feel sorry for an American public that swallowed his campaign rhetoric...Absolutely.  The shame of it all is that Obama will continue in the same direction with little regard to the damage that is being done to this country...holding the winning hand and continuing to bask in believing that he holds the right ideas is simply the nature of his arrogance.

    I feel a bit sorry for him, but I'm glad for America that he is there.
    He is doing the best he can under the circumstances.

    When he was running for President, many of my friends were positive about him.
    But I said from the beginning, it wont be good for whoever becomes President now, because the American people are going to look for someone to blame.

    People who are living in bad circumstances now will say that he is not doing enough for them.
    But it is hard to call those people unreasonable, because you can't blame them for complaining. But that doesn't mean that they are right.

    People will always look outside themselves for someone to blame. And the man with the most responsibilities is an easy target.
    Not that I think that the government is not the one to blame in most cases. But Obama didn't put those people there. Especially the people in the government of the last term and the one before that.
