Everything is terrible under Obama!

    Let me be clear! I'm loving it! I hope everybody that voted for Obama, gets exactly what they deserve, and it looks like they are.

    Unemployment is ridiculously high, it's at the level that certain Euro countries are used to. This is hardly a surprise, since Obama apparently is trying to emulate certain failed European socialist systems and import them here, such as his disastrous Obamacare plan. A plan which the majority of Americans are against, may I add. And unemployment among those groups who came out strong for Obama (blacks, hispanics, minorities etc.) is much higher than for any other groups. There's your hope and change! People who vote for a candidate mainly based upon race deserve whatever they get. Racists are not cool in 2010.

    Then there's the whole oil spill fiasco! Now that is turning out to be a huge headache for Obama. Obama received tons of money from BP! Maybe he should give some of that money back and help pay for the clean up!

    Then there's the whole Homeland security thing! Janet Napolitano speaks of "man-caused disasters"! What the hell is that? The administration is afraid to even use the word terrorist, so they engage in 1984-ish, Orwellian newspeak. Eric Holder couldn't even bring himself to admit that radical Islam played a role in the recent Times Square attempted Islamic Terrorist bombing when being questioned about it. "Nation of Cowards?" - Eric Holder? It's more like the administration of cowardly incompetence and Eric Holder is a coward who can't even tell it like it is.

    Then there's the whole immigration fiasco! The majority of the people in the US are not with Obama and the whitehouse on this issue. Obama's view is the minority, radical view. The Feds are not doing their job, and Obama is defying the laws of this land. He is not protecting the people, which should be a president's main job. Obama is protecting the illegal criminals!

    I could go on and on, but you get the idea. To sum it up, things have only been going one way since Obama took office, and that way is not up! I can only imagine what further damage will be done to the US and to its' citizens by the time that guy is done with his term.

    It will be a miracle if there's not another 9-11 or something even worse than that under Obama! We are after all at war, even if this current, laughable administration is doing their best to pretend that we are not, even going so far as to making excuses for the terrorists! Don't worry, soon there'll be another attack or attempted attack and Obama and his goons will be quick to tell us that it was an isolated incident!

    I bear no responsibility for Obama, I didn't vote for the dude.

    Just FYI, Obama received about $71,000 from BP employees, not from the company itself.

    But yeah the honeymoon definitely over. Obama is up to his neck in oil and other issues. I just hope he can solve some of them. Whether you voted for him or not he's still our president and I expect him to succeed.

    What a great and intelligent rebuttal!

    I'm not a birther, are you?

    Obama is a disaster, regardless of where he was born.

    Why the hell should the government be on the hook to pay for the ****ups of private enterprise? That sounds an awful lot like socialist nonsense to me.

    You're right, technically, he is my president too, even if the mere thought of that makes me angry. However, in a few short years, he will no longer be President of anybody, and thank goodness for that.

    And I don't really wish for him to succeed. I don't like his plans, his philosophy, his politics or much about him. So if he fails, then I believe that the USA is better off for it.

    Everything that is happening now is the result of actions/regulations that the previous administration did or did not do.
    You can't blame Obama for this mess.

    So that's your argument? The other guy would have been bad too, so nobody should dare criticize Obama? And for the record, I wasn't all that crazy about McCain either, i thought that he came across as pretty weak.

    This deregulation **** has been happening for decades, don't even try to just blame Bush, everyone has a share of the blame here.

    That's hilarious. Rabid Obama supporters were using that excuse in the first months after he took office. I predicted to my friend around that same time that Obama worshippers would still be using that same excuse even years after he took office, and I see that I am correct.

    Obama knew what he was getting into, and it is incredibly lame and weak to blame EVERYTHING on those who came before him. Obama has made some terrible decisions, and that is his doing alone. Don't blame others for his pathetic weakness and ignorant decisions.

    Which terrible decisions are you talking about? :confused:

    Also, you did watch his speech taking responsibility for the spill right? The fact of the matter is that we, humanity, just don't know how to stop a spill almost a mile under the sea.

    He's done a terrible job... I expected more out of him and the democrats. I agree with the Thread Starters points. Our chance is we can vote him and his cronies out in 2+ more years. The danger is the republicans put up a real lightweight to run against him. We need real leadership that can cut the crow and get things done.

    Quick example... just yesterday in a newspaper article on the oil leak in the gulf... if BP doesn't stop the leak with top kill... Obama is prepared to send in the experts... Give me a break... it's been leaking for 40 days and Obama hasn't sent in the experts yet? Face Palm big time.

    There are specific people over in "terrorist land" who have a job that is all about fixing problems dealing with oil, but Mr. O and his admin don't want their specialized help. Mr. O said it is his problem now. I can now blame him :rolleyes:. (Even though it had nothing to do with him or BP in the first place)

    All we can really blame him for is spending time on other crap instead of fixing the economy.

    Personally, I would have rather seen the time on the healthcare bill spent on infrastructure (roads, utilities, bridges, canals, etc.) now ... since the jobs are needed right now -- and we will be spending trillions on it later anyhow, and likely shifting those jobs into the future when unemployment is low.

    California is too poor to spend the money on the water system like the governator tried recently, so it'll likely get billions and billions from the fed to prevent collapse soon anyway when an earthquake takes out a key earthen structure.

    But I thought the moment he was elected would be the moment "the oceans stopped rising".

    Don't bother, the OP doesn't care. He thinks the world is so simple that a single person can fix everything and therefore Obama is to be blamed for everything, regardless of who started, when it started or whatever.

    People, just don't feed the trolls. You're only giving them power if you do. Ignore him and move on.

    Then equally obviously, everything bad that happened under Bush was the result of actions the Clinton Admin took, right???!!!!

    No, of course not, that would be fecking ridiculous!

    I just find it shocking that people in this country have such little clue as to how things work that they think the president (whoever it is) somehow has ultimate power and can do anything they want.

    People need to realize that the real problem is the institutions that have have been in place for decades with the real influence. The president is only slightly more than a figurehead in the country, especially at this point where business runs everything they want to.

    If that's the impression you were under...

    The United States is like a very long freight train. Yes, you hit the brakes, but it's going to take a few miles before it stops. The US is massive and takes huge amounts of energy and time for anything of import to change.

    Yes, Obama appears feckless in regard to the oil spill, but what could he have done before hand? And, what could he have done today that would change anything? The sad thing is, BP has the expertise to deal with this problem that the US government does not.
