    Good plan Present Obama.  Steal land from the states and then sell it to foreigners to make more money for your stash.  Oh I know the Present is talking about selling buildings, but Obama's proven he's willing to go for the gusto.

      This is not exclusive to the USA or Obama.  Much of the UK's national assets are in the hands of foreign ownership and if not for a show public anger our forested land would also be up for sale right now.  The fact is that we live in a globalist existence and very few national assets are sacred any more.

        Well I don't like it.   This is the grabbiest president we've ever had and he is a financial idiot.

        Today he commented that he was too busy to get involved in helping the NFL figure out their dispute, that an industry that MAKES 9 BILLIONS DOLLARS A YEAR could figure out how to divide it.

        That moron. 

        The industry is WORTH $9 Billion.  The industry makes between $6-9 MILLION a year. 

        And this is the guy who's occupying the White House.  He's Present but he's no kind of President.

          He has taken over at the worst possible time inheriting the disastrous mess left by George Bush.  The World economy is in a mess and America's global standing took a huge diplomatic battering under Bush's leadership.  Believe me, outside of the USA and like his father before him, he was seen as something of a warmongering knob of low intelligence.

            He's see by many Americans in the same light - believe me.

            Obama is a laughing stock on the world stage.  People don't respect him.  Maybe it was all the bowing and scraping, I don't know. 

            He didn't "inherit" anything.  You don't inherit a presidency.  He campaigned hard to get a job and he got the job.  He's done nothing but complain and carp about the job ever since he got it.

            He dodges his responsibilities and has lived it up like no one I've ever seen.  He acts like a nouveau riche rube.  It's embarrassing.

              Well, since you don't know and the fact that he is not actually a laughing stock on the world stage might have something to do with your failed understanding of world politics. It's anyone's guess.
              Actually, he inherited a massive undertaking, to dig out of, which doesn't solely rest on Bush, but every other President before him.
              Actually, he continues to try to break the "status quo" of America, but it is people who continue to distort his actions for their own benefit and not to mention, those same people continue to pass along misinformation, so people cannot come a reasonable conclusion, as to whether or not, he is actually doing anything right.

                I disagree with you on all points and stand by what I wrote.

                A man who scrambles to win an office can hardly say he inherited the problems that come with the office.  A man wouldn't do that anyway. 

                I'm glad my daddy wasn't a whiner.  He actually did inherit a world of hurt.  But he didn't whine and blame.  Ever.

                How would you like your boss to complain all the time about his big job?  Would you respect him?

                Barack Obama was given a Nobel Peace Prize before he made any peace anywhere because some people (idiots in my estimation) believed his little visit to Pawkistawn (where ever that is) and a couple years as a boy in Indonesia somehow gave him experience in international politics.  Guess what.  He has no clout in Pakistan, can't even get a CIA agent out of there.  He has not clout anywhere.  The world is turning upside down in a way I've not seen in my lifetime.  And Obama is AWOL.

                  You know, sometimes it's very hard to have a good conversation with you, because you lack so much understanding. But, I guess that comes from so much distortion and misinformation, which apparently has your britches in an uproar.

                  You can disagree on all the points or some of them, I don't really care what you disagree with, because the truth of the matter escapes you, as did part of my post which you didn't bother to read or just dismissed.

                  The problems Obama has INHERITED from previous Presidents, since the INCEPTION of America is what he is trying to deal with. And, had you had a bit of knowledge with regards to previous Presidents that were in charge before you or I were born, then you would realize that the major problem he has had to deal with is the "status quo".

                  If you don't know what that is, just admit it and I'm sure someone would be nice enough to explain it to you. Because, if I have to explain it to you, you're not likely to enjoy reading it.

                    I understand.   You are a brainwashed leftist who hates America and wants it to be fundamentally transformed into a Socialist paradise.

              AnnCee - I presume you are being antogonistic in order to stir this debate.  Let me help you along.

              I am not sure where you get your facts from but in the UK he is very much admired.  I appreciate that being the first of his type to become president in a country where some States still harbour racial divisions, half of his job of is overcoming that subconscious ignorance.  The reality in my view is that like the way that Bush's election was contrived at a time when the US had planned for war, so has Obama's term in in office been somewhat manufactured when you needed to present a less hostile image to the World.  It is unlikely that he will ever be allowed to become a succesful, popular president to the US people as the powers that be have him there as a short term necessity only.  I do not suspect we will see his type in office again, anytime in the near future.

                I get most of my news from the UK and spend much of my time in the UK and you are wrong.  Maybe in your circle Obama is admired, but you cannot say that he is widely admired in the United Kingdom. He is not widely admired in Europe and he is constantly insulted in the Middle East.

                Barack Obama thought he could be all things to all people.  He has failed.  Even the left is finished with him.  Even the man who bought him has said he is "not a good investment."

                Just because you say a thing does not make it so.  Bring facts to prove how much the UK admires Obama.

                  Well I live in the UK and travel throughout the country regularly and can only reflect on the views held the by wide variety of races, cultures, nationalities and social status I speak to on a daily basis.  Not many people give much consideration to ground level US politics outside of America; we have our own foolish double-act to worry about.   However, from an external perspective, Obama comes across as a Worldly and intelligent man, unlike some of his predecessors. 

                  You may be delusional enough to believe that a modern day US president actually runs the country and is singularly responsible for the decisions that are made.  The circles I talk to recognise that they are merely facades and Obama's presence is necessary to deflect attention from the carnage instigated during the tenure of the awful Bush presidency. Surely, on the basis that people as thick as Bush (or the more likeable Reagan) could hold presidency when they could hardly identify Iraq on a map, let alone pronounce it, you cannot seriously perceive that your president actually runs the countries affairs.  I repeat Obama‚Äôs presence is purely for the purposes of portraying the US with a softer diplomatic facade and there is no intention by those who really control the country to present him as a great domestic leader when his shelf life is predetermined.  Your motives for wholeheartedly discrediting him seem at best misguided and at worst divisive.

            And all of that makes Obama competent how?

    "Good plan Present Obama.  Steal land from the states and then sell it to foreigners to make more money for your stash.  Oh I know the Present is talking about selling buildings, but Obama's proven he's willing to go for the gusto."

    Land grab? The CNN website you referenced says that the plan is to sell 15 billion dollars worth of unused buildings, real estate, etc -- they are scheduled to be disposed of anyway and the Obama plan is to speed it up. This plan would, with congressional approval, set up a board to market them faster and bundle them to get better prices, for obvious financial reasons.

    There is no plan to grab any land from the states -- all properties are owned by the federal govt.

    Your second "reference" the Washington Times (sounds like "Washington Post" doesn't it) is a blog spot for articles about Obama being a muslim, obama stealing state land to sell it, Obama not a citizen and the like.

    In the last days of his admin., Bush rushed to process leases for drilling on the environmentally fragile"off limits areas." Obama took over and immediately canceled most of them.
