    I think "Boy Wonder" is beginning to see that running for president is a whole easier that BEING president. Within his first 16 days his popularity polls have lost a whole lot of precious points, and there is no hurricane within the proximity of New Orleans.

    Several of his appointees [Clinton for one] does not represent "change." Some of those on the far left are strongly questioning his moves. Several of his appointees have be snarled up in tax problems, and that is not the change he promised, it's just "same-old-politics-as-usual" and this, too, is costing him points and followers.

    About the followers that will stand behind this president after his first four years are up will be the radical black community.

    Now the positive: I did appreciate his "candid" news conference where he admitted to "screwing" up. That is the one thing that will keep people in his corner. Clinton and Bush didn't apologize enough for their mistakes, so Obama gets a handful of precious "kudos" points for his open, candid approach to the Tom Dashle with drawl.

    Let's hope he succeeds folks, because this economic crisis can't involve another 4 years. That will eat away at the moral fiber of all Americans, and probably throw us in a world of chaotic ruin.

    Why would this economic crisis necessarily "eat away at the moral fiber of all Americans'?Did the Great Depression eat away at our moral fiber too?

    Americans have been spoiled for years by their ability to buy the latest technological marvel for their entertainment, to cater to their ever whim. They are a far different breed than those who faced the Roosevelt depression.

    So younger Americans will not be able to afford their tech toys.Because they won't have as much money at their disposal as before that will lead to a weakening of moral fiber?!

    Generally speaking and from years of observation, I believe overall, the younger Americans already have a weakened moral fiber and the tech toys have nothing to do with it. Look how many under 30 voted for Obama. And they definitely are a different breed than faced the Great Depression, my generation included. America is not the same America it once was. We are divided into many ethnic groups and ideologies whereas before, we were mostly just all melted together as Americans in what was once called the great melting pot. No more. Too many generations now have been accustomed to living on government handouts, where it wasn't that way before.

    I agree with the OP also.

    I heard a comedian.....reflecting on the appointees tax problems...... that Obama has found a way of recouping the bailout monies being paid out..... by finding and appointing the habitual tax evaders of his own party and making them pay up. :laugh:


    I find myself fascinated by what I think is happening:
    This man is in office...... and his approval is already in a flux of change: Some of his greatest opponents are finding he seems to have some strengths which were not hithertofore evident... and can find some favor or approval..... while within his own party ranks there are so many divisions who are vieing for position..... but he must focus on the good of the country and not the appeasment of their pet projects or their campaign interest.....

    We're in for some interesting times.

    I do pray that God will give him the wisdom to lead, and obediance to God's law. To the extent his leadership conforms to that which is in God's will, I pray that he will be blessed with success: To the extent with which he opposes the word and laws of God, I pray God will send instruction and rebuke, and lead his heart into a 180* turn-around.

    Where are you looking? Gallup says he's lost only 5 points in 16 days. That's not bad considering his botched appointments and the state of the nation. People are hurting and they want to see action now. He may have to forget the bipartisanship he's trying with the GOP and just do what he needs to do.
