  • It's all talk. HE can't do anything without a billion other people's consent. We have to wait at least four years to see if what he says will come true. Oh, and I did vote for Obama.. I just don't believe anything they say when they run... It's all publicity.

  • He didn't inherit anything. He asked to be elected KNOWING what he was getting into.


    The word inherited, it a political term used for him to "play the victim".


    Obama implemented this stimulus, he has his budget cut ideas~ it's all his now..


    Obama Owns the outcome of this Economy.

  • Considering Senator Obama voted in favor of the bank bailout and many other bills that created the deficit, including yearly budgets and military spending, I'm not really sure how he can say he inherited something he aided in creating before he was president.

  • He will not cut anything in half. If you read his wordings, it is said that he speaks mostly of "saving" or "preventing" and nobody can specifically prove that anything was saved or prevented and that is where his new numbers come out speaking of " halving" a deficit. It's all lies. Ask Japan, you cannot spend your way out of any deficit and Margaret Thatcher will be the first to tell you eventually the Nation does run out of everyone else's money. Or the citizens simply leave.

    George W. Bush was borrowing 70 billion a month from China , making the USA the largest debtor in teh world and China the largest creditor...do you believe THAT was in our childrens best interest? President Obama is actually reporting all the money he is spending UNLIKE former president Bush, give him longer than a month before judgements about our childrens future

  • sweet-a-kins Obama is spending 35 billion a Day on his plan - go figure the math. And Obama is NOT reporting what he is spending. Where do you get your information? Why do you think the american people don't trust him. He is pushing through as much as possible to appease his liberal friends.
