Do you really think Obama can fix the economy in 7 months?

It took 8 years for bush to screw up our economy there is no way that Obama can fix it in 7 months. And as the saying goes it usually gets worse before it gets better.

  • It's not that I don't think he can fix it in 7 months, I don't think he can fix it at all. At least not in the way he has been operating. I don't believe that borrowing and spending trillions of dollars that we obviously don't have has any chance of fixing a thing. That is just one of my fundamental difference of opinion that I have with this administration and it's policies.


    And before anyone asks, yes, I did contact my elected officials to tell them that I didn't support the first bailout. Bush had a liberal spending habit.

    and what explaines it all it that a link or something.
    Bushes liberal spending habit is what got us in this trouble. I think that what obama is trying to do is place money in the economy hands hoping that they will then go and spend it but it is back firing on him.

    In ONE DAY, he signed a $787 BILLION dollar spending bill that was chock FULL of earmarks (almost 9000 of them) for his special interest groups, and campaign supporters. That money did not go into helping the economy. NOW he thinks a SECOND STIMULUS is needed, even though he THINKS the first one is working, 4 months after pasing, and 2 years BEFORE it is scheduled to be implemented? How can something be proven "successful" if it hasn't happened yet?!
