    Do you think Barack Hussein Obama can bring change?

    We have seen resignation of CIA director and COO of Lockheed Martin resigned, and the system is rotten from top to bottom, when poor are dying of hunger and health problem. Rich making money by betting on Food, futures and making food more and more un-affordable, do you think The President elect can make any difference when his team is rotten and corrupt.

    What we can expect from Obama is supervision or guidance which makes a way to the expected change .

      We have seen it last four years and it has gone worst. Unless a major change in system is brought I do not think he can succeed in making change. Under pressure from lobbies and interest group who give them political funding, change is impossible.

    While there is corruption in every government, there is also good.  Apparently you aren't paying attention to the "good" part and only see the bad.  Pity, really.

    President Obama has done a great deal for this country and will continue to do so, despite the hurdles he will have to climb.

    Have you forgotten about Obamacare?  Have you forgotten that the economy is starting to come back, businesses are starting to do well, the unemployment rate is dropping?

    Yes, food is costly, there are poor and sick everywhere; there are also very wealthy, healthy people.  This has always been the case and always will be.

    Obama's job is to see to it that the weakest among us are cared for, that the middle class becomes stabilized again and that the wealthy step up to the plate financially to help the country that has given them so much.

    He won't succeed in all of it, but he will succeed in some of it, just as any other President would.

    It's just going to take some time.

    President Obama is a supreme divider and has had 4 years to bring about positive change BUT he has not succeeded. His policies are not fruitful, he has no business experience to pull from, he uses bully tactics to get what he wants. He panders toward groups that can help him and steps on those who have no value to his ventures. He is the epitome' of corruption in my opinion. Things will get much, much worse before his second term is finished.

    No, I don't. He didn't do it the first 4 years and while his intentions may be good, what we need is action and I don't see it happening--although I would be delighted to be proven wrong.

    First of all I know parts of America are run down slums but that is not a picture of Las Vegas or even an American City. It is photoshopped and the slums are either South America or African, you can tell because of the materials used for the roofs plus this picture is all over the Internet with different City names.

    This president or any president can't fix everything that is broken and he surely cant do anything without support from the people... What is strange to me is that it seems like those who will benefit the most whine the loudest about him so I am honestly confused.

    I do have faith he will do the best that he can for us all and that is all you can ask from anyone really. 

    "All this will not be finished in the first 100 days. Nor will it be finished in the first 1,000 days, nor in the life of this Administration, nor even perhaps in our lifetime on this planet. But let us begin." --- John F. Kennedy
