democrat against obama
Yes im a democrat and yes I did vote for obama, but now I think I shouldnt have. Is this guy really qualified to be our president? I do admit I fell into the hype of obama for a while mostly because im democrat, but know im second guessing our president. It seems like everyone voted for him because hes younger than other candidates and all the celebs were behind him and the media hype. Everyone forgot (including myself) that this guy doesnt have a whole lot of experience at high level politics. Dont get me wrong I like obama as a human being he seems like a very nice and smart man but does that mean he should be president? I even have a black friend that didnt vote for him because he didnt think he had enough experience. I dont know but I think obama is going to be either one of the best presidents or one of the worst.

Obama is a dude with common sense, and he isnt an out of touch good ol boy from a billion dollar family. hes been in office for 1.5 months! holy ****.
people all acting like he can even change something. Sure there was hype, and some may have been bull****. You would be saying the same thing with Mccain if he was in office now.
give it a rest, make your judgements 3 years from now. no president can make drastic changes. i am fiscally conservative, but i voted for Obama because i was tired of old ass white men, out of touch rich *******s, telling me smoking weed is a problem and gay sex is "immoral".
We need a little progression, and no matter which way you slice it, you will get more progression with obama, then Mccain.
Lol. 1.5 monhts in office, and your complaining about him! LOL!

watch this movie
we can't afford to continue to raise entitlements, raise spending, raise the size of government. whatever % of GDP goes directly towards government (currently 20%ish) spending CANT go towards growth of the GDP in terms of investment. As the government grows larger and larger, it continues to slow the growth of our economy and yet at the same time attempts to offer more and more benefits to the populace. Its unmaintainable.

that movie is great, and that is the full movie... whats one of the most interesting pieces which I hadn't thought of is that it explains that clinton only really had 1 surplus year, not the 5 that gets claimed. Mind you this movie is BY the comptroller general of the US - the head accountant of the GAO during part of the clinton administration and the bush admin. The reason they claim 5 years is because they added in the surplus collected from social security - that is supposed to be going into the social security fund to raise its balance, but is being spent instead. Only 1 year was an actual surplus without that counted (which is still good mind you)

OK HERE IT IS I GUESS HE DECIDED NOT TO GO WITH THE PLAN WICH IS GOOD. I HAD ORIGINALY HEARD IT FROM MY MOTHER WHO WORKS AT THE VA HOSPITAL.
The White House on Wednesday backed off a controversial plan that would have dramatically altered the way the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) handles insurance claims, after veterans groups staged an all-out fight against such a proposal.
President Obama will not pursue a proposal that would have allowed the VA to charge private insurance companies for the treatment of veterans with service- and war-related injuries. The proposal raised the ire of prominent Democrats on the House and Senate Veterans Affairs panels. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was the first to publicly announce Wednesday afternoon that the president won�t pursue such proposal.
For a second time in a week, representatives from prominent veterans� organization went to the White House on Wednesday to meet with the White House chief-of-staff on VA budget issues. On Monday, they met with the president, but that meeting led to a public outcry over what veterans perceived as a move by the president to still consider the proposal despite opposition.
