Obama and America`s deficit.
« on: March 16, 2010, 09:32:13 am »
It has been rumored that before Obamas term comes to a end,he will be the most expensive president in americas presidental history. In knowing this,would you still be a supporter of our president in the next 4 year election or would you opt for whom ever his oponent would be?

Considering that his opponent will be an insane Republican, no, certainly not.  There's a lot I don't like about Obama, but voting for a Republican is always worse.

This country is screwed either way, but with Dems in power at least it won't be destroyed all at once.

<insert Sarah Palin joke here>

Everyone's so terrified and antagonizing of the future. This makes us weak. I have a lot of criticsm of the president but I'm going to let time tell to see if his ideas work. And we're so correlated in the worlds economy that we aren't going to be destroyed. We're in nothing more than a setback that's going to take a long time to get off of our shoulders. One man isn't going to magically fix it. If enough people really cared about our problems, there'd be a civil war.

Bah...my PC is running slower than Obamas CHANGE!

In just one year Obama has increased our national debt more than Bush did his whole term, his budget for year two projects the same extra spending.  With the economy the way it is we need a president who is going to reduce spending, not increase it.  I am most definitely NOT a supporter of Obama, and would definitely not vote for him.  Also remember, the elections aren't just a one on one choice, D or R.  There are other candidates, and just because they are lesser supported and unlikely to win, doesn't mean you should exclude them from your considerations.

Well, I didn't vote for him the first time and he has not changed my mind for the better.

We are living in unprecedented times now, with the great recession. (which is awfully close to a depression)  Things are really changing and things need to be corrected and overhauled.  There could be a pullback from some spending, but right now in time, spending is a necessary part of our situation now. 
Things are indeed a big mess, but hopefully we can dig ourseleves out of the poor decisions that were made in the past.
The repbulicans are becoming the party of NO.  I usually have not been swayed strongly one way or the other, but I am not happy with the republicans at all right now.

This is not a rumor this is the truth.  Obama and his band of 1960s era radicals are bent on destroying America from within.  Case in point is the passage of that monstrosity of a health care bill.  The true purpose of this bill was revealed by Congressman John Dingle who said " It’s taken a long time to ‘control the people’ ".  This was never about providing affordable access to health care, it is all about control and power over the people.  When the people come to rely on the federal government for everything, then that government controls you and every aspect of your life.  Where you live, what you do, what you eat, what you are allowed to drive, etc will all require permission from the almighty federal government.  Does this sound like freedom and liberty to you? It doesn't sound like it to me.

I'm not waiting for 2012 to stop him.  2010 elections will turn him into a 'lame duck' president by removing his party's control of congress.  Majorities of Americans opposed this bill and yet the Democrats went ahead and passed it.  The price they'll pay is being fired from congress and making them look for jobs in the economy they helped create. 

I encourage my fellow Americans to vote out all the people who voted for this infringement on our liberty.  Vote in freedom loving Americans from the following parties: Republican, Libertarian, Independent in no particular order.  Be vigilant and aware what these candidates stand for.  We have had enough RINOs like Arlen Specter so simply saying you'll vote Republican isn't enough any more.  Vote for people that will respect and govern by the Constitution, not those who pay it lip service just to get elected.

The "mess" you refer to was created by the Democrats beginning with the 2006 mid-term elections.  The downturn began around that time.  I see no positive progress in any area since they took over, so I can see no reason to reward them with any more power.  Time to give some new ideas a chance.  Remember in November.  Fire all Democrats, Hire Republicans, Libertarians or Independents.

I most certainly would vote for him again.  If people would remember, before and after he was elected he said that to turn this country around was going to take some time, to turn the economy, was not going to take a few days, weeks or even month's, he also said it may not be turned around by the end of his term but there would be a significant change in the way things were then and it was going to be for the better we would be headed in the right direction. he didn't promise to have everything turned around in the first month or even year after he took office.

Let's just give the man a chance, two many people saw something in him or he would not have made it into the whitehouse, i honestly believe the best is yet to come, i have faith in him and i believe that though he would love for the american public to be his friend, he has a job to do and he will not always be popular with the masses. You Go Obama!

You can't expect something to be fixed overnight.  You can glue a broken vase back together, but those cracks will still be there.  There are so many old adages that can be recalled as a response.

There are so many different things I can say about everything I've read in this topic, but all I really feel compelled to say is that I am disappointed. 

Look at John McCain's actions in 2000 vs. 2008.  He was a completely different person.  McCain did such a 360 that he was nearly unrecognizable.  Granted, in the 2008 primary, he was only running to lose because after 8 years of dubya, America would have voted for a blind monkey holding a stick as long as they were democrat.  And Obama's promises were so tempting because the American public wanted so desperately for someone to care about them...the middle and lower classes.  Here we are now, Obama being in the office for a total of 16 months...barely a toddler, and we expected magic from him.  We thought that once he was elected, things would magically be better.  They're not, so we're going to blame him.   :BangHead: 

Try going from homeless to mansion overnight.  Its not possible.  I am not privy to the information Obama knows...I can criticize him until I'm blue in the face, but for all I know, he's doing what's right.  It comes down to a personal preference...whether or not I believe he can deliver.  And, honestly, the last time I felt that way about a political candidate, the election was stolen from him.  I love our rules of governance, and I can do nothing but hope they work, and vote in each election.
