Yup, your economic stimulus has been a smashing success. Unemployment continues to rise along with foreclosures.Now comes the latest good news: New home sales have fallen 12.4% in July the biggest decline on record going all the way back to 1964! Thanks President Obama, you're mu hero! Keep up the good work!

Not to mention ALL the troops that are coming home. Funny, you don't hear much about Cindy Sheehan and her crazy protests anymore. Go figure.
Or Dubya and his supporters either! I wonder who DID vote for him in both elections? He was responsible for both wars and the bad economic downturn, ya know! But Obama is expected to clean up Dubya's horrible mess!
The U.S. had its reputation smeared because of the two terms Dubya served! I had rather we were still arguing with Saddam than all of the deaths and horrible injuries caused by the invasion of Iraq! Not to mention the trillions of dollars going to Haliburton (coincidentally I'm sure) which would have gone a long way to help in other areas of need.
Now, the same folks who are responsible for this ever happening want another guy to try and stop the bleeding. Then they gripe when he cannot clean up their mess quick enough. What is the term used for these types of people? Patriots? No, that's not it! America lovers? Nope, wrong again! Hypocrites? Now we are getting somewhere! LOL!
If it wouldn't have completely finished off our country I could have almost wished McCain-Palin had won the election! Thankfully, there weren't enough Faux News watchers and bible thumpers to get it done!
It's working so well that half the demorats are distancing themselves from him.
anyone who thinks that "buying random things" will help an economy is an idiot.
Unfortunately, 85%+ of the leading economists think this.
"We are not heading for a recession! The us economy is basically sound!" Dubya during his re-election campaign!
Did any of you previous posters believe him and vote to put him back in office? Fess up if you have the nerve! LOL!
Of course I believed him and why wouldn't I?

What he said was true! Now Obama on the other hand...
Yeah, he was swell!

And this next graph shows how little the middle class has gained under the so called "trickle down" economic policies favored by the last three republican leaders!
http://observationalism.com/2008/10/19/ … 000-words/
Those graphs do a great job of showing how much Obama lied during his campaign. Thanks ever so much!
Dubya had already lied many times during his first term in office and it didn't seem to phase those who voted for him AGAIN! LOL!
"Sadam has WMD's!" "The oil will pay for the war!" "We do not torture!" "He can run, but he cannot hide!" (Ben Ladin)
And the "mission accomplished" flight and landing on the aircraft carrier was an insult to everyone!
Yes, he was such an honest guy! Proud of him, are you? LOL!
It seemed to have slipped your brain that Bush didn't approve the wars, Congress did. You must be so proud of Congress's lies too.
As for that Mission Accomplished banner, it wasn't Bush's idea but some military guy's. So explain how that was an insult now that you've been show up for being ignorant.
Business is up 20% where I am. Also the auto industry is coming back again, and green energy is starting to come into the fold.....FINALLY.
You must have too many repubs in your areas to have anything good happen. You know what obstructionists they are.
"Have a nice day!"......"NO!"
"Thanks for a lovely time!"....."NO!"
"You look wonderful today!"....."NO!"
"Are you happy to be alive?"...."NO!"
Taxes will kill the economy.....don't expire the tax give-away for the rich! That 3.2 trillion added to the debt is GOOD debt!! It's for MEEEEEEEEEEEE
No-We have Republican control...DA, sheriff, judges....it's crooked as hell. Connected people get away with murder and little small-time dealers do hard time. It's ass-backwards and inhumane. And truthfully, we have been on the decline since 2001.
This is the first year we've seen an up-swing. Obama must be doing something right.
So, I will continue to hope that he keeps his course and doesn't ever listen to your guys. They only care about 1 segment of society....the over $250,000 club.

Here's a nice article...I'm proud of what they are doing!
11 Very Reasonable Places Your Stimulus Dollars Went"
It's working? how exactly is it working? the fact that he hasn't done jack to deliver on any of his so called promises? the fact that he's increased the national defecit even more? the fact that he spends more time paying attention to sports than he does the problems within our own country? in fact, it used to be you had to be champion to visit the white house, but not with o'bama. he'll see you whenever he wants with no championship or with one. seriously, it seemed like just the first few weeks he was in office, his first comments weren't about the economy or the war, he was talking about how he wanted to fix the ncaa football ranking system to implement a playoff. seriously, why is that important? let the ncaa do their jobs, and our president needs to stay out of it. i'd rather he'd take care of the usa and do his job first before acting as a commissioner of sporting events.
Sheehan still protests...and she has a radio show. If just doesn't get press. Why? Who knows...ask the 6 people who own all the media!!!
read the article...these are all good things.
And when I go off-cape and also on Cape, I see signs of road work funded by the stimulus. It feels good to see that.
I don't care what the negative people say...I'm optomistic now that the GOPsters are gone.....should they return, my heart will sink.

So President Obama's approval rating after one month is...only 68%. Our expectations of him on Inauguration night were too high. His approval rating back on Jan. 20 was around 80%.

Despite what Obama's press secretary might tell you, the only reason that America is leaving Iraq is because of a declaration signed by George Bush saying that America will leave by 2011. Obama insisted upon staying in Iraq, but the Iraqi government has refused to grant US troops immunity for their...

“Barack Obama is now putting the United States squarely a decade behind Britain. Listening to the President’s State of the Union message last week was like a surreal visit to our own recent past: there were, almost word for word, all those interminable Gordon Brown Budgets that preached...
