  • And?

    He's spending more of our tax money that could have been put to other more worthy causes than lining his pockets.

  • He is already campaigning for re-election. Obama is not really into running the country, he just wants to BE president. The title is more important than the job.

  • It could be argued that a lesson was learned from the 1994 midterm election, also known as the Republican Revolution. Democratic strategists know there's another tide rising and are positioning themselves to stave it off.

    No, I don't think it will work. I think we will see a large number of Republicans elected to Congress in 2010...and then we'll see a return to business as usual in 2011.

  • Maybe someone should tell him he won and he can stop campaigning now.

  • BO is at a big party. I also heard that he had played more rounds of golf in his first 9 months than Bush did in his first 3 years. No wonder he doesn't have time to make a decision about the troop needs in the theaters of war.
