    Default Obama

    And his $787 billion stimulus package. Wanted to hear it from the horse's mouth itself: Do you guys actually think that it'll work in improving America? Not while it lasts, but having some actual permanent effect?

    And on another note, what do you think of his chances of getting re-elected?

    Well, considering no one I know received that stimulus check that was going out to every family/household in america, I have no intention of voting for the lying asshat.

    Also, He has spent a shitload of money, which has yet to get us anywhere except farther into debt, and he seems to be on vacation every other week.

    I'm no economic expert, but I think the stimulus will reduce damages, but not salvage the economy. There's honestly not much he can do other than apply stimulus and wait it out. Unfortunately now that less and less people have Obama fever, he probably won't get re-elected. Which is sad, because now people resent him so much (for not fixing the boo-boo right away) they're willing to vote in a terrible Republican candidate.

    I've never liked him. My stance didn't change cause of how things went. I expected it to go like this.

    To be fair tho, I didn't think McCain would be any better. Neither of them were worth a shit, not that it matters cause the pres is just a figurehead.

    The stimulus only works in the short run. While it does inject money into the economy, all it does is leave terrible debt that still needs to be addressed in the future. I don't get it.

    about the stimulus only about 20% of it has been given out so it's hard to judge its effectiveness.

    the stimulus seems way too decentralized anyway. big federal public works program that actually builds something decent seems about the right wayt to do it.

    Some one needs to force these companies to use there money to hire people. They should of signed a contract or something whent they accepted it. Or else they hog it all up and nothing changes.

    I see Obamam being reelected easily if they send out some tea party douchebag but if they send out some reasonable guy we might actually see a decent election.

    Anyway this who tea party crap has really split the replublicans. Its possible that they could disolve before the election happens. Then the democrats are sure to win.

    He hasn't even served two years as president yet - when his term is up, the healthcare bill will be commonly accepted throughout America, the stimulus package will have worked some marginal wonders and the troops will be home from Iraq. No doubt the Americans will be told that to fulfill his promises, he'll need another term, and they'll be happy to keep him there instead of letting the Republicans blunder through everything he's set up.

    Disclaimer: I'm by no means an expert on American politics but I'll consider myself more educated about it than you guys and our Irish escapades.

    I know I won't be voting for Obama again. What a fraud.

    also obama would stand a better chance of being reelected, and have a better presidency in general, if he wasnt a big fat pussy.

    Of course the stimulus package won't work. It along with everything else Obama's done has pretty much been to line the pockets of his Wall Street friends. Also, we're not pulling out of Iraq, that's a misconception. What actually occurred is we moved troops into Afghanistan from Iraq and then added more to Iraq. The Obama administration claims there are fewer "combat troops" in place, but in reality he just changed the definition of "combat troops". And finally, the healthcare bill will cause all Americans to increase their healthcare expenses. Those that can't afford it will receive government assistance but far too little to counteract the expense. Also, insurance companies will pretty much become government subsidiaries.

    america should really just look at one of the (western) countries that has universal healthcare and just say, "ok, this is EXACTLY what we're doing." dont try to get cute with it or compromise. it won't be great or anything but it will be better, and at least SANE.
