I do know what I'm talking about. I merely suggested that Obama should know more since he's the President.

Please tell me exactly how spending ourselves even more into the crapper is going to solve anything. It won't. It may temporarily, but long-term it'll just dig us in more.

So you know for a fact putting money into the economy will not stimulate it any way? I'd like to see your sources, other than you just spouting your ignorant and irrelevant opinion.

The Congressional Budget Office says it'll hurt long-term. If they're not a good source, I don't know what is.

From all of the viewings of Obama so far, it really doesn't appear that he is doing anything serious to fix our economy when he tries to promote a plan to get the credit flowing again. Sadly borrowing and credit overextension is what got the country in the mess it is in right now. Instead of "let's try a new credit approach", we should think about teaching folks to budget and save for purchases, not whip out the handy dandy plastic. Understandable that most of us cannot afford to purchase a house or vehicle without credit, but do we really need to purchase food, clothing, common household items, etc... with the almighty credit card?

If you wanna build your credit up, then yes. Its not a great system but its the one we live in so if you're not building up your credit now you better start.

Obama is on TV almost everyday to announce what he is doing as President unlike Dumbya & Darth Cheney and their secret meetings. It's called transparency but you anti Obama freaks can't seem to get through your heads that Government can work for you. Don't want to see Obama on TV? there is a button called "OFF"!
It's been almost 5 months since the election and the wingers are still bitter. Get over it!

You do a lot of criticizing of people who don't like Obama, but I don't see you giving any proof of anything you say.

Cite your source, please, or stop yapping against other's thoughts.

Where is your proof of what he has done other than a lot of talking.

Well point out what I've said Obama has done and I'll have to get right back to you about that
