    As if one person (even the President) could solve our problems. It wouldn't matter anyway congress would just block it.

    The trade war is a new global reality, while the dragon will remain a threat. I don't see a solution to the currency war anytime soon. The U.S economy driven by real estate boom couldn't survive the first economic slaughter, and the threat is yet far from over.

    About as soon as he has tackled ANY of the massive array of problems in the good old U.S. of A..............Don't hang by your toes, waiting.  I like Obama well enough, but I also like my friends and neighbors and none of them have solved our problems either.   I say we live our lives as the champions we are......get on with the business of caring for ourselves and one another....and let the Politicians remain the group of clueless a$$holes they are.

    He has and is. This is what socialized jobs and economic policies look like. The rich get richer, and the poor and middle class get poorer.

      All public sector jobs, direct or indirect, are a net loss to the economy.
      You can't pay yourself to work and make money at it. These jobs are negatives to the actual GNP.

      Yes, but the very rich corporate elite are making $, not losing. The negative impact of liberal policy is not felt by them, but rather below them.

    There aren't any answers coming out of Washington from either party.
    Neither is going to make the kind of spending cuts required.
    You can't spend  our way out of this death spiral. We have to stop trying to police and rebuild the world and take care of our own country.

    Given that public sector jobs, especially with their bloated costs, are total negatives to the economy. There has to be massive privatization of those jobs at reduced costs and many just have to be eliminated.
    Short term this means more layoffs and unemployed but we can't afford to keep them. Sadly the private sector jobs have been driven off shore. There is almost nothing made in America any more.
    I for one don't see that turning around and we no longer have the infrastructure to support it even if we had the labor at affordable prices.
    Instead Obama wants another amnesty for illegals, which we know from experience will only result in a flood of millions. Some estimate as many as 50 million but even of it is only a third of that we can't afford to have the one who are already here or a third of them.
    We need to start by completely dumping the IRS and replacing it with a simple fair tax system that is easy to understand and has no loopholes.
    Personally I support a simple sales tax and elimination of all other taxes and fees. But there are other plans out there.
    Whatever it is it should be no longer than 50 pages and understandable by anyone with a high school level education.
    Will any of this happen,,, don't hold your breath.

      Well maybe if the Dems actually do their job instead of stopping all house bills something might get done, The GOP gave up on the libs and that is why there was a shut down....the libs caused it weither they admit it or not.

      The corruption and abuse the irresponsible spending and wars for profit have been going on for decades under both parties.
      They are both rotten to the core.

      Reid and Obama have openly admitted they will not talk.  The Republicans have sent how many bills to the Senate, not one has made it to the floor. Thaks to Reid, sorry hun, but in this case the Dems are solely responsible

    In Obama's own words he has been doing this since his first Inauguration.  Aren't things good?  We hear they are good?  What makes anyone doubt that they are good?

    I am a conservative and I never liked President Obama. However, I found it very hard to believe that he could be so insensitive to the needs and desires of half of the country. We are a country divided and just because he and the Democrats were elected to the majority does not mean that the Republican majority in the House of Representatives is irrelevant. I am constantly amazed by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, President Obama, and the news media as they pretend that the United States does not have a Constitutional separation of powers. Every Republican in the house was elected by the people. It stands to reason that they should have their voice heard. To flat refuse to listen to these people disenfranchises many people. We have three branches of government: Legislative, Executive and Judicial. They are equal and must work together. Even when two branches are of the same party they do not get to ignore the third branch of government. If this this attitude continues our country is in serious trouble. At present I am very angry with the Senate, the House and the President: every one of them. They are an embarrassment to the American People.
