I'm trying to formulate this thought very carefully so it doesn't come across offensivly. I hear a lot about how everyone thinks that Obama is goofing up already, you guys he's been in the office for 4 months! That's hardly enough time to get through the piles of paperwork let alone fix an enitre nations mess. That is the equivalent of expecting your four month old infant to all of a sudden get up and start walking and taking care of herself. I do not understand how on earth people can jump all over the poor man when he has barely even had a chance. Change is a process and it's a long process. This nation needs time to grow and mature and President Obama can only work as fast as the rest of the nation is willing to go. If we want a faster change then we need to work together to achieve that. How can we expect a change if we do nothing for it?Answer Question
Obama may be "wet behind the ears" but last I checked he CHOSE to run for President, fully comprehending what he was going to "inherit."
Obama may have "inherited" a deficit, but he QUADRUPLED it in less than 4 months, and made a number of sweeping changes in that short amount of time that are setting this country up for failure on a much grader scale.
Tornadoes, hurricanes, and earthquakes don't last long either, but the destruction they leave in their wake is often astronomical!!! Obama is this country's "made made disaster!!!" LOL

Havahs...i get what you are trying to say. My point is that what he IS doing is detrimental. What he IS doing is causing a slippery slide to socialism. The gov't should NOT be in charge of banks, auto companies, or ANY private business! If they fail they fail. Case and point...Ford. They did NOT receive bail out money and are the only auto company that looks like it has a chance. WHY? Because if people have no incentive to do better why should they? And yes I was pissed when at Bush for signing in bail out money. Gov't run health care WILL bankrupt this country. But will probably be pushed through anyway. I keep hearing about the 8 yrs it took Bush to screw things up, well in my opinion its taking Obama months to make things WORSE!

havanah...that wasn't my question
How long DO we give him before the mess, that HE SAID he and ONLY he could fix, becomes HIS problem, and the lack of change is HIS fault?
That was my question. Nothing about who needs to help him. I keep hearing the "he needs time" excuse but no one will say how MUCH time. So not 4 months than WHAT? 6 months, 2 yrs, when is the mess he is making worse HIS fault. And as for Bi partisan ship, Ms. Nancy Pelosi herself said her JOB wasn't paying attention to legislation in 2004 but winning votes for the democratic party! if that's the way the party thinks it's no wonder they aren't getting bi partisan help. AND HE SAID HE COULD CHANGE THINGS. HE SAIS HE COULD DO IT. There were no codicils when he said it. HE has not tried to be bi partisan, in fact his EXACT words were "I won, get over it!".
