Bookmark the post. FWIW, I don't want this administration to end in failure like Carter, but every day it appears that we are going down the wrong path.

Obama is starting to receive criticism from friendly media such as the NY Times and the Washington Post. This is not a good sign for him.

Maybe if you wanna-be socialists (particalarly many folks from California) truely have this view of those of us that live in the real world, perhaps leaving y'all to start your own pc wellfare state isn't such a bad idea!
I'd still prefer to live in a country that values freedom, liberty, family values, morality, and hard work. I don't WANT or need the federal government to tell me how to live my life or spend my hard earned money (for the benifit of numerous others that haven't earned it!)

NOT....a good SIGN at all.

If the "friendly media" is FINALLY starting to criticize him it can only be that they have a few diehard holdouts LEFT.

FOX News must have finally stolen enough of their (friendly media) viewers and readers to the point that their ratings are finally low enough to take action!
You would think its more important to them than kissing his behind for 3 more years.

He's toast now.
Maybe we'll get to see him on live TV before long.

HAPPY NEW YEAR, all you Barack- lovers!

Maybe it'll be a happy new year for the Obamatrons, but it's going to be hard to watch my personal freedoms and this great nation get destroyed by this horrid administration in 2010. What's next? Cap and Trade, rediculous animal rights laws, increased gun control, property seisures (see the feds plan for water control in the western USA). Maybe we can double or triple our debt this year also! Wake up koolaid drinking liberals...sooner or later somebody has to pay for all these rediculous social programs!

No. They should get rid of the extremists in the party and focus on fiscal conservatism. The left should do the same and get rid of the extremists in the party as well. I'm a moderate, I don't take a liking to the extreme left or right.

It's apparent to me that you are one of the extremes.

And just how does President Obama inspire you, What are you most proud of which of his amazing acomplishments, makes you so very proud so far. Can the others even be worse as he!

I didn't like George Bush he was inept, sadly it looks like Obama will give him a run for his money. I didn't even vote for Mccain either.
Bush makes Obama look really bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!
