Another double-headed poster!

We can only hope that his policies will fail. So far, the stimulus has failed miserably.

Are you kidding me? I don't think his presidency will fail at all. In the end, he will have done exactly what he set out to do.

honestly though, as a republican, i just hope Obama can flip on the pumps and gets this ship floating again...

its easy for us to speculate about the possibility of chaos and doomsday, but nobody wants it to actually happen.

As for now, time will tell... we'll see if socialism is capable of saving this country.
