As well, main stream should really refrain from trying to be Economist, Analyst etc. We are just people. If we were so smart...

Don't we have our own agendas? Have we not set goals yet? Are we working towards them? Isn't there much we should be doing to support this great man in the next four years? Shouldn't we start now if we haven't already? Or are we just going to sit back and wait for the hand out and the next election?

Amen. I never understood why the Democrats, and sometimes the Republicans too these days, think that the Government can do it all.

are you for real?
do you in your heart of hearts really, really think he is doing what is best for our country?
he is pushing his agenda forward, and damn the outcry
remember 58 million of us said no to his "hope"
he is screwing us daily and trying to cast blame on Bush
Bush is gone, it is Obama's mess now and he is finally getting some dems to say no to his bull crap.

Atleast you asked the question, but remember the time during the campaign? Remember how everyone came together and got involved? One can see what came of that hard work? The result was he is now President. He also said many times, that he will need everyones help.

People first must get positive!!! Acknowledge the great work he has done thus far and will continue to do in the name of good.

I believe people should also continue to get involved in community. Commit to making the country a better place as he is trying to do.

The logo was "Yes WE can" and "Yes WE did".

There are children, seniors, schools, hospitals etc. who need help. Putting on a thinking cap and giving the legs a workout will result in great things.

Don't you think? What a country it would be if everyone did a little extra!

Remember Bush started these Stimulus Bills that didn't work under his administraion and even the big daddy of them all, the 850 billion package, didn't help us . But who benefitted from that bailout the most? Those good old rich boys on wall street, those big corporations and many banks, who by the way kept their CEOs flying in their private jets and spending our money on bonuses to their CEOs and lavish parties. We can't keep spending our way out of a recession nor still be paying for a war when our own country is on the verge of economic collapse. Yet some people want Obama to fail so that they can go--na na na na. Hummmmmmmmmmmmmm? Lawd help us!
If the plan fails it will be everyones fault! Sitting back and blaming one man is not the answer. It is cop out and goodness gracious no one needs anymore of those.

It is well over time to take ownership and get involved in the success. Sitting back waiting for failure while critizing every step just won't do.
