    SOOOO... a little over 2 months and the world sees what a inept celebrity we have for a President.

    What happened to all of those like Crabtownboy and Jim who was sooooo proud the world finally respected the USA because of our choice of President?...

    Well, now the world realizes we have a dunce.. just like us conservatives have said all along.

    We should have elected his teleprompter!

    FIRE EM ALL... 2010! Then get rid of the Dunce and the rest of the maggots in 2012!

    From what I heard on Hannity, Sarcozy (president of France) criticized Obama on his economic policies. I find that surprising considering France is liberal in a lot of ways.

    America needs leadership. Obama is not equipped for this job. What options do we have with this incompetent administration?

    His Stardom is Falling Faster than a Shooting Star

    Down, down, down he goes....ever so close to the pit of personal despair and failed dreams. The larger the ego, the louder the bang when it hits the ground. He thinks he has a lot on his plate now, watch what happens when the leaders of this world realize what a "Pansy" pushover we have in Washington. He will be the worlds doormat for the remainder of his term. Chavez, Putin, you name them....the worst of the worse will all take "dead-aim" at our POTUS, and he'll be nothing more than a one term failure. Hopefully history will leave an asterisk beside his name. Telling history buffs that he was elected but deemed not qualified, therefore America was without Executive Leadership from 2009 to 2012.:flower:

    His years of non-existence on the floor of the state and federal senate has contributed to his "super nova" like burn out. In his honor and name, I think the next comet discovered by science should honor him by naming that comet Barrack Hussein Obama.....:smilewinkgrin:

    The world now accepts us again because Obama does NOT claim to be the "President of the World." Bush did and most of the world hated America the conqueror.

    Though I didn't want him, didn't vote for him.... there weren't enough of us third party voters to change the direction of the Washington crowd...... so......

    What options do we have with this incompetent administration?......... I'm praying for him. Whatever else he might be..... he's as human and frail as any one of us.... and as powerful as his office may be.... poor thing.... he's just a puppet and being used by most of those who saw to it that he was elected.

    I think its great that the Dow went up. I hope the Dow continues to go up. However, there's more to running a country than just the economy. His policies stink. Anytime you throw a hefty tax on the rich, we all end up paying for it.

    His stance on moral issues is another area I hate about him. I believe that Obama is no more or no less incompetent than Bush was. I believe he's putting on an act just like he did about bringing "hope" to our country. He knows what he's doing. I think he is intentionally taking us down the wrong road.

    I agree 100% and in fact I don't believe the DOW is a true economic indicator. However, Obama was gaged as doing poorly when the DOW kept dropping so I was wondering why he isn't getting praise for it's sudden turnaround.

    I am the one who argued against using the DOW as a measuring stick when you see articles like this. I think we're using the wrong indicators. All watching the DOW rise means is the rich are getting richer and the poor are still not getting much trickle down to their part of the economics.

    To be honest...... his statements and those of his cabinet concerning policy.... can influence the market.... but giving him credit or blame for every up and down turn is a bit indiscriminate and unfair, when its done without any explanation....

    For example...... in a posting archived and referred to after months to a couple of years later.... we'd have a recorded opinion but no instructional or historically worthy reason for that opinion. Whatever people may think, Obama doesn't just stand beside a guage and push it up or push it down: .... If he even affects the market at all: It is something said or done or revealed intention that encourages or depresses the market..... After all is said and done.... it is HOW the markets are influence by the WHAT of pressures going on around them including statements showing directions in leadership, which are more important than WHO.

    .......iow...... some kinds of DISCRIMINATION is good......particularly when it comes to passing our judgement along to others.

    Where did Bush claim this? Or did you just make something up again?

    For the most part I will have to agree with the concept, however, the markets responded understandably in favor of Geithner recent plan to remove the toxic assets.

    What a ridiculous statement. What do you base these harsh words on? Probably your politics only. Obama is a tremendous improvement over his predecessor who was recently picked 37th (tie) out of the last 43 presidents. Bush was a total disaster.
