Yeah its probably best to at least wait until he is in the job before telling him how bad he is doing at it.

Very true, even if you dont like the man or his ideas we all better start PRAYING that he is right. Because with two wars, a national image in shambles and the economy in the toilet, we really cannot afford any mistakes.

Its abit unfair to Obama that he has to be 100% on most major issues but there you have it. Bottom of the ninth, 2 out, three on, the last better just struck out and the rookie is now up to bat. Lets hope he hits it out of the ballpark.

I don't expect him to be perfect but I hope he doesn't crash and burn. After all the alternative is crazy Joe Biden or worse yet, Nancy P.C. Pelosi.

mmarsh, it's a bit unfair to every leader who has to be right 100% of the time with their critics being the snobbish monday morning quarterbackers known as the press. I was watching the BBC and I just had to turn the damned thing off. The interviewer's "I am a cultured British interrogator and you, slimey little Yank, will answer my questions and I will CUT YOU OFF before you can answer so it makes you look stupid and makes me look superior. Of course if you get angry, it'll make you more stupid, and I will open my eyes really really wide and look down at you with my superior height (that's why I was picked) and my chair that has slightly longer legs than yours. Oh yes, if you think my expression is that of an adult scolding a silly little boy, that is because you are correct. I learned this from my headmaster when I was a young lad and he did me up the bum and now I get back at people at higher levels of authority than I in the same way to tickle my ego. The fact that you're far more important than me makes me feel small and I must crush you no matter what. HAH! Just because I'm on a politics show it makes me look like a far superior POLITICIAN than you, even though I am truly an English major who had a very good GPA," sort of crap was pissing me off.
Couldn't watch a minute more of it..

Well true, but what I meant was with all the problems we face, and the hype, Obama cannot afford any SNAFU'S. You could say the same for any leader, but for Obama the current situation is both unique and dire. It isnt really fair because all Presidents make mistakes, even the great ones.

The interesting thing I see is how Hilary is already talking about expanding the state department in power and at the same time bolster more foriegn policy meddling in even more countries problems. Now is that not completely opposite of thier election stance on trying to stay out of other countries problems?

And thats just some of the wonderous news that is coming on the heels of a new administration. New people same old crap....

Yall do realize that if his economic plan takes off, and works, and the economy starts going back up on his watch, and doesn't go as low as it did during Bush's watch, he goes down in history as a national hero?

At least Obama's got a plan whether it succeeds or fails. If It fails then he can try something else. Its better than having no plan at all. Seriously, the economy really started to implode in early October what is Bush been doing since then? Bailouts to Banks and the Auto industry? While both are important neither one will get the economy back on track. This president is just sitting on his a** trying to run down the clock.

If hes going to that he might as well move out NOW, and let Obama get started with his new job.

Do you really think the economy began to decline just in October? That's rather short sighted. The decline began years ago. I don't think hundreds of billions of dollars is doing nothing by any stretch of the imagination.

years? more like decades, our current problem began way back when the lobbyists lobbied to get the restrictions that were placed on banks back in the teens or twenty's removed, after the restrictions were removed banks started gambling on weather or not I could afford a $200,000 house on a $32,000 salary. and of course to make the odds better they came up with this thing called interest only loans, and teaser rates.
That kind of crap has been going on ever since the restrictions were removed. Now here we are in 2008 with the whole entire world tied together financially, and when one stock market goes, the whole house of cards falls over.
get ready guys, the change Obama wants to try to make might not be the change that happens.
I hope Obama can fix this "problem" Cause if he can't there might not be enough organized civilisations left for the next guy to try his plan
