  • He will sign the freedom of choice act for one, to get rid of all of Bush's policies to help save babies lives. He will make it easier for people to end the lives of the babies.

  • So he will "clean up" all of Bush's work to try to save babies lives if that makes sense.

  • What will he 'have' to do? I would say he would have to take a more conservative approach to the economy and scale WAY back on the programs that he wants to introduce. We simply don't have the money to do much right now. Although, I don't really see him making those types of moves.

  • people who did not agree with Bush will say that Obama is going to have to clean up Bush's mess, justt he same as people who did not agree with Clinton say Bush had to clean up Clintons mess, when in fact this miess has been a long time coming. Clinton is the one who made it easier for people who were not qualified to be able to get mortgages. Some messes arenm't easy to clean up and as a nation we make decisions on our own yet want to put all our problems on our poresident and not on ourselves.... cont

  • cont.... if people knew they couldn't afford a 300,000 house but got it b/c the bank could make it feasable by interest only loans, ARM loans, ect so thy went for it... We are not taking responsibility of our own actions and putting it on one person out of the 600 million we have here. it's not the presidents fault ppl are having kids they can't afford, buying houses and cars they can't afford. Non one put a gun to ppls head and said "you have to join the military". Come on.
