on a scale from 1-10..

on a scale from 1-10 I want you to rate these two statments. 1 being the lowest, and 10 the highest.

1-Obama is doing a great job as president, the reason we are in this mess is because we inherited it.
2-Although we inherited this mess, Obama has done nothing but make it worse, by passing outragous spending bills.

and finally, why did you rate them the way you did? Anon answers will not be counted when this question is closed(only because you can answer several times under anon). This is also a poll, but to get a more accurate count I am posting it here as well. Results will be posted on my homepage by the end of the week.

    Obama voted for military expenses, budget increases and TARP I. He's as responsible as anyone else for getting us here, and with all his education and **experience* he should be intelligent enough to figure out that excessive spending is what got us here.

    During one of the debates the question was asked how each candidate would deal with the economy. McCain immediately listed all the ways he would make hard cuts, even furloughing entire sections of the exec branch if need be. Obama said he'd spend more money, and make more programs and find a way to pay for them, but even after being asked TWICE, never gave one idea how he'd fix the economy. That should've been a clue people!!!

  • as for myself:

    statement 1: rating 1
    statement 2: rating 9

    as to why: I don't feel Obama is doing much to help the economy when he is spending money.

    Obama has only been in office a bit over a month, it took 8 years to bring this country down, he can't make it worse in 45 or so days, but it will take some time to get better.

    Obama has been in office less than 2 months and has tripled our debt. He's not listening to the top economic minds in our country, and its going to hurt us worse than anything else. He may have inherited a mess but he's made it worse in a very short period of time.

    I can't stand hearing that Obama "inherited" this mess. Begged for it is more like it. Also, we seem to forget that he was part of the Congress that created it. Is that because his attendance was so shoddy?

  • Question 1 - 10
    Question 2 - 1

    I agree with gramsmom. Obama has only had just over a month in office. After 8 years of mismanagement it is going to take a lot more than a month to see improvement.

    Yes, Obama inherited this mess and I'd rather he was handling it than no plan McCain. Bush had 6 years with republican control in the house and senate. So yes, the democrats inherited the economic crisis.
