I found it insulting that obama said yesterday that people have this much (snapped his fingers) attention span and than forget! WOW! Does he not realize that is how he got elected because of that very thing within his party!


But for Obama, who built his candidacy on a promise to rise above Washington's divisive partisan traditions —
winning over many independent voters and moderate Republicans in the process — blaming his predecessor holds special risks.


He will need support beyond his Democratic base as he begins lobbying for his $3.6 trillion budget, which proposes sweeping changes in health care, the energy sector and the public education system.
The president did not receive a single House Republican vote for his stimulus plan, prompting some in his administration to view his bipartisan outreach efforts as having little hope of success.

george does not get his deposit back on the apartment, its a mess.
but incompetence in the white house--- i am appalled, at the unmanly behavior of those who reject the results of our democractic process. the post election behavior continues to push the moderate conservatives towards the left.

I also like how he says our when we are in worse shape than when McCain said it.

President Obama is starting to sound a lot like John McCain these days:
Today, President Obama said, "if we are keeping focused on all the fundamentally sound aspects of our economy, all the outstanding companies, workers, all the innovation, and dynamism in this country, then we're going to get through this. And I'm very confident about that."
It seems like ages ago, but when John McCain came out in September and said the "fundamentals of the economy are strong" candidate Obama responded furiously, in what became a defining moment of the campaign.



Obama: Fundamentals of the Economy are Strong after All






“But if we are keeping focused on all the fundamentally sound aspects of our economy,

He gave up the right to blame Bush when he ran for office, was elected and took the oath of that office. Success is not built on sympathy.

He bought it. He got it. He's the one pulling the train now. If it don't go then he needs to let someone else give it a try.

How shocking! You are telling me that he can't vote Present anymore so he has to find another way to shift the blame just in case in case his policies do not work.

Today's headline: Obama: "Economy may not be as bad as we thought." I think he needs to make up his mind. Last week it was the worst economy since the Great Depression. Today, not so bad.
