    What do people think of Barack Obama now?

    As a Londoner, I do not have much of a say into America's presidents as an American Citizen.  However, from across the pond, my view is that he is a great guy!

    I think people made the wrong choice in comander and chief  he only cares about what will make history instead of what will preserve it its all about him. Not the people a sterio type polition with ultimate power and no balls! But thats just my opinion

    He only says what he thinks people want to hear but has no business experience, went to top schools but really doesn't know what common people are about. Of course there's always one answer to everything spend, spend, spend, we can always print more worthless money.

    considering the stock market has dropped not once but twice so far and our credit rating went to the toilet since he's gotten into office, I'd say I'm not too impressed with his administration at all.

    I think people think in general he is a good guy.  But he is also over his head.  He needs to be stronger and stop being a punching bag.  Many people complain about him but the reality is we did and still don't have many great options for a leader.  Would you rather of had McCain and Palin?  Then we would have really been screwed.  Even today the GOP has yet to put really a great candidate in front of the people.  It is sad that our country is not producing great leaders.  It does not help either that our party system is all for their party and not for the peoples best interest.

    American presidents are political greyhounds bred by their parties to get elected to office only.

    I've done reverse speech on Obama's political comments and you might be surprised at what you hear in reverse.In fact I would encourage everyone who's interested in what their politicians are thinking at any given moment to do this if they want to know what our leaders are really thinking and not just saying.Of,course live recordings are best.Because someone could put together a very convincing recording of parts of a persons speech to make it seem like it came directly from that person when it did not.So,the next time you go to a political rally take along your recorder.Preferably one that can record sounds or speech at a distance.

    Well, maybe if you had to live in the U.S. you might not think he is such a "great guy". His approval rating drops on a daily basis while he plays golf and vacations at the taxpayer's expense. He has done nothing but ruin this country and will continue to do so if he is re-elected in 2012. As for my opinion of him "now", it's the same as when he was running for president. I didn't like him then, I don't like him now, and I won't like him in the future.
