    In my point of view i think he is doing right we do not need to back into a recession. It is because of his quick decisions that we are slowly getting out.

      I think you're wrong, but that is a debate we can have in a civil and intelligent manner. Unfortunately for the politicians they have other considerations besides what's best for their country and for the American people. They also are concerned with holding onto power and their own personal wealth and careers. It is to their advantage to perpetuate problems and to blame the other party for them. The American people are aware of this and have grown tired of it. We want honest and open discussion and transparency. Unfortunately while President Obama promised these things, he has yet to deliver.

    It's the nature of politics for Democrats to bash the GOP and vise-versa.

      It is always "right" for a politician to attack members of the other party.  That's how they keep their own party in power and get themselves re-elected. 

      You just have to understand that the normal concepts of Right and Wrong, Good and Evil, Truth and Lie do not apply to politicians.  Right, Good and Truth apply to actions that promote election and/or additional power, Wrong and Evil and Lie apply to actions that might not.

    He hasn't fixed anything. Pumping Govt. money into the system to keep it propped up is only an illusion.

    He is sinking this country with his policies and plans.

    Attacking the rebubs is not the only thing he is doing. He might as well come right out and promote racial socail unrest. He does nothing but spout off and whimper about racism in everything.

    I bet niether he, nor Holder, read the Arizona law.

    lol Yeah I bet.

    Obama is a deceptive POS.  All he has done is screw the taxpayer out of more money. 

    $50 Billion to GM... plus another $18 Billion to GMAC.  More than half of all GM jobs are now located outside the United States.  GM Bankruptcy put 1,000's of American Companies who faithfully supplied parts completely out of business including 80,000 jobs at Lear who no longer has any operations in the United States.

    All this money has gone to Bankers and offshore.

    The recession has never ended.

    Obama borrowed and spent, and now he wants a VAT Tax to screw the people even more.

    The Euro is a failure.

    Debt is not capital.

    And you have to be pretty stupid to believe anything that comes out of Obamas mouth.

    And his latest proposal is to give even more power to the Federal Reserve so they can regulate the Banking Industry.

    When will Americans educate themselves?

    Obama increased troops to Afghanistan from 30,000 to 100,000 and we are not safer.

    If 20 million illegal aliens can just walk across the border how can anyone expect that Team Obama can protect the United States from the Terroists they create?  Simple:  Not possible.

    Obama is a wind bag who can't tell the truth.

      I feel your frustration but the results you expect are too immediate and unreasonable.  The bailout was the only thing this country could bear with the way the debt and failures were strangling any movement in the economy.

      The Federal Reserve is a sham and the VAT tax is most certainly to come.  Was an all out depression the only way we could fix this?  Was a total failure of the financial institutions the pill to swallow and rebuild from the ashes?

      Any large business that faces a shortfall looks to either sell, barrow or go out of business through bankruptcy.  The government is no different other than being a defecit spending business.  The short term collection of enough money to pay the bills was not available.

      This crisis did not happen overnight and the resolution of it will be a long hard option we had no other choice to take on.

      I don't like a lot of Obamas ideas but this was started by the prevoius administration and Obama continued along the same strain as it was our only choice other than failure and causing another great depression the likes of which the world has never seen.

    Americans are intelligent and they can speak their minds.
    Both sides are attacking each other, thats a dual party system for you.
