Watercooler discussion regarding the 'change' Obama has brought about thus far. We're stumped! The best answer we got was "Nothing yet. He hasn't been told to start" Any ideas out there? Oh, and they have to be defendable with facts, not spin.
isn't he moving terror detainees from gitmo to illinois? i believe its illinois. hey, thats a change. not necessarily a fabulous one, but hey, he just said change.
He brought more socialism to the government.
He's "the great distractor".
He has succeeded in arranging several distractions like the focus on health "care" and finances to BE the focus of his Administration and the media, while in the background he's perpetuated sodomy in our society including churches, irresponsible and non-transparent government, and even gotten by with leading this nation's youth sector astray in different ways.
Quite a few big accomplishments there.
..Big doesn't mean good...
..."Great" doesn't always mean good either...
He single handedly changed the way I looked at John McCain, I thought McCain was a bad choice offered to be President. Now I think he was the greatest candidate ever, but then again a tree stump would be better than what we have now.
Dang, that's a good one. You're right too. I thought McCain was a wash but now...might not have been so bad.
No way. McCain was Obama lite. The only difference would have been that McCain would have done everything Obama did, only slower. This is what happens when you elect a person for the color of their skin, not the content of their character. So much of Dr. King's dream. This is also what happens when you elect a person who deliberately sought out Marxist professors and who, incidentally, is a freshman Chicago-style politician.
He did manage to get a republican elected in MA. That's change I guess. Give the man credit.
Don't get me wrong. I'm ecstatic about Brown wining. But the Republican party, or at least certain sections of it, are just as bad as the Democrats. Who we elect is more important than the party we elect. It'll be interesting to see what sort of Republican Brown turns out to be.
Entirely agree. I hope this incredible win will bring some true conservative statesmen out of the woodwork now that they realize any seat is winnable.
Major change that happened after Obama became president... The suit behind the podium is now empty.
The change I have seen is the President Of the United States also Chairman of the UN Security Council.
This is Treason if permission was not given by Congress.
Did Obama get permission from Congress before he took the Security Council seat?
I think the Republican Party was looking forward to losing, especially after the media turned against then U.S President George H.W Bush. The media has a way of showing perspective to not only the nation, but the entire world. And since the media in the United States is mainly "leftist" naturallly it was a perfect time to attack the Bush administration which is "rightist."
The Republicans could have ran Mitt Romney, some one which I thought would have been a much better choice. But religious prejudices do exist and I think Romney would have been a casualty of such a thing.
Since the American and foreign media turned on America's involvement and handling of the Iraq War, it was ok for a leftist like Obama to win the election. Now the middle of the road voters are seeing what an error they have made voting for a far left individual who opposes Christianity with no real track record. An individual who hid his college grade transcripts, his birth certificate and tried to hide his involvement with Afrocentric anti American personelle.
Oh, I think he brought lots of "change" to America. Just not the kind that anyone thought they were voting for
Pfft. They've known that since Reagan won office. For whatever reason the Republicans have been trying to be Democrat-lite for about a century now. What we really need is an end of the two party system. Legislators need to be elected on the content of their character, not the party of affiliations they hold. It'll never happen, which is why I don't believe any form of government is workable.
Not to mention the utterly idiotic idea of trying the 9/11 suspects in New York. That's a scummy way to get a show trial of the Bush Administration in front of the American people. Given the new voting patterns, it looks like the American people aren't falling for it.
No they aren't. The media just won't report how pissed everybody is about it.
It's funny, the "media" has been such a force for terror and abetted the rise of dictators around the world during the 20th century but a network scheme planned by the US military to continue communications after a nuclear war is going to destroy that media. The world can be a very funny place sometimes.
The only mistake Obama made was trying to get along with all the right wingers. I hope he's learned his lesson now.
He's changed the fact that people no more rag on George W. Bush, now they rag on him. Its only fair for both sides to be able to make fun of the President. He's also changed the fact that most people were against the war in Afghanistan but since he put more troops in there is a more positive view on the war.
Perhaps they are a little more positive because now when a family member hears from their loved one from overseas that things are a little safer because they have the number of guys they need, not short handed. I know for one it was very hard for me to hear my boy tellling me he was doing 72 hour shifts with no sleep due to the fact they were short handed. sleepiness and over tiredness brings about mistakes and less awareness of their surroundings which does cost lives and these lives belong to our loved ones.
But thats only my opinion,...
For anyone interested in a more accurate assessment of his accomplishments and failures, instead of another right-wing circle jerk, I've found this to be a helpful resource:

Would the same outrage still exist? Or did Obama's presidency ignite the flame?I tend to think that Obama being elected certainly was fuel on the fire -- that is to say, the Tea Party would not be as big or popular if John McCain was president. Much more people would be too complacent simply...

As you know, President Obama has made an NCAA bracket and it has made big talk. Doesn't Obama have more important things to worry about? Like our weak economy, our broke nation, and our war with Iraq?Im interested to hear your thoughts--John
