    Did anyone force Barrack Obama to run for the office of the President? I don't remember seeing anyone pointing a gun at him.

    Obama ran for office knowing what the problems were, so saying he inherited the mess is plain disingenuous.

    He said numerous times he wanted to clean up the mess. Now he's complaining he's got a mess.

    Seems to me he wants it both ways. Why doesn't he quit whining and blaimng Bush and do what he said he was going to do?

    Bring the nation together.
    Transparency.
    Not take money from lobbyist or hire lobbyist.


    Just a few of the broken campaign promises.

    It would appear {as with the constant WHINERS around here} that the vast sucking sound of pulling the GOP off of the TEAT OF AMERICAS PAY ALL/SPEND ALL FORMER 8 YEARS...THAT YOU JUST CAN'T STAND THE PAIN & AGONY THAT COMES WITH THE WORK THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE TO CHANGE THE AVALANCHE THAT FELL UPON THIS COUNTRY.

    And if that can't get your attention...then do PLEASE, try to remember that the call to change the speed of falling rocks started a year ago this past September by the former administration and they all so very, very sadly missed the mark for honesty and full disclosure.:rolleyes:

    So continue to post this repetitive B.S. and continue to squeal your dislike but you too haven't a CLUE as to the ways & means that the correction plan and methods for changing the events will or will not work...but your constant squealing/monkey cries are becoming PATHETIC/REDUNDANT AND SO TELLING ;)

    I didn't advocate for George Bush and his decisions. He is just as guilty. But Obama was in the Senate and did vote for the same policies he now criticizes Bush on.

    I'm simply stating a fact that Obama knew what he was getting into, so why, does he continue to blame Bush. He was just as much involved in the first bailout that Bush was. As well s the majority of the House / Senate.

    He needs to quit telling us he inherited a mess. He went out and ran to take on this mess, knowing fully, what the challenges were.

    Do you think it's the plan of the Democrats to make blow up our dollar so we will ask UN for a bailout and go to the IMF.?

    Obama has signed on to the IMF at the G20. He's also wanting to sign the international treaty giving the Unitied nations control over the U.S.

    If not, then, I hae a hard time understanding, why the current administration doesn't see what the rest of the world sees.

    What makes you think "The Party" is in control? Crap, there's currently more control of our country in the hands of Goldman Sachs than there is in CONgress--they tell CONgress to jump and CONgress asks how high while in the air. Of course, CONgress then tells their constituents (us) the BS stories (heavy on the spin cycle) required to keep us from REALLY getting ugly.

    Very true. How, though, would the Central Bankers gain if the dollar goes bust?

    "Obama ran for office knowing what the problems were, so saying he inherited the mess is plain disingenuous."

    Disingenuous... not candid or frank (Webster's New World Dictionary)

    His comment is candid. It is frank. It's also the absolute truth. He did inherit the mess, the mess created by the Republicans who are now working to try to block all repair to the damage they've caused.

    Before you try again to impress us with your use of big words, you might invest a little effort in learning their meaning.

    My word selection is correct. He knew what he was getting into. He ran for office and put time and effort to get elected. He said he would fix what's broke in the system. He would clean up the lobbyist.

    None of those things has happened. He's done nothing to change anything for the better. It seems as things are just getting worse.


    As for blocking... so the stimulus plan was blocked?

    Nope, that got passed. But it did not help. The stimulus was just used primarily as a payback to those that helped elect the democrats and going forward, to next year, where more is to be spent , to help democrats in the 2010 elections.

    Obama is his worse enemy because he complained about the Repub spending during the campaign, and then he comes in and triples the deficit and is in a spending frenzy.

    He needs to rely less on "socialistic" ideas to fix th economy. It's not working. It never works.

    There ya go again Shaman. Your obsession with Limbaugh is so nice.

    Did you send him a sympathy card when he lost his bid for the NFL team?

    You seem to care what he thinks and says a whole bunch.

    Comprehension doesn't seem to be one of your attributes. The word choice was wrong to make your argument. Re-read the definition, then maybe one of the neighborhood kids can explain it to you.

    But your biggest complaint is Obama hasn't fixed all the problems in nine months that the Republicans created over eight years. Stupid complaint, but we've come to expect that from you.

    how does logic so escape you?

    Just becuse you want to fix something, does not mean you can be held responsible for the problem that was already caused and for not fixing it with a magic wand.

    If the Titanic hit a iceberg, started to go down, and the capt left the ship...would you hold the first mate responsible for the ship sinking and cast all blame on him if he did not save the ship? Thats the logic you have here
