Nancy, you claim that the ecomony is undisputedly on stronger footing, and cite the new health care bill as evidence. This conclusion is undisputedly wrong. Give more people health care entitlements and costs are bound to go up, unless care is denied, which is also bound to happen by government bureaucracies that will have to put spending limits on health care. This bill has already lost millions of jobs, reducing the tax base, requiring government to print more money, destabilizing the economy further.

To fix the economy, we must build and grow things. Our leaders have:

* paid farmers not to grow food making us depended on imports.
* over regulated American industry-forcing them to move abroad.
* taken over half the lands in our country and leaving it barren which can be used for industry.

There are many ways to fix our economy. We need leaders who will do it. We need leaders who love America. Other than political corruption, there is no reason a powerful country like ours should go begging for money.

He has delivered on his promise to "fundamentally transform America." In this promise he has undoubtedly succeeded. Too bad we didn't recognize what he meant by change. Its time for a new change to reasonableness,fiscal responsibility and restraint. We have learned that you cannot spend your way out of debt. (something most Americans already knew) We've also learned that you can spin your way out of poor decisions. For example all the spending was spun to make it seem like we would have been much worse off had we not broke the bank?
Jobs. Well, lets not even go there...

I'm concerned about this man threatening our freedoms. I believe in the constitution.

Obama's campaign pledge was that he would bring "Change"--what too many naive Americans failed to realize when they voted this man in as President, is that change isn't always for the good. This President has taken more vacations in these past two years, than any other President in history during their full terms. He has done so much to destroy our country with his out of control spending, claims we are no longer a Christian nation, bowing to foreign leaders, etc., etc. Hopefully we are much wiser now and will elect somebody with integrity, wisdom, and who loves America.

mtymouse what is your source that he has taken more vacations than any other president? Bush wrecked the economy, give Obama some time to fix it (two years is not a lot of time).

Although I did not vote for the man, he is still MY President - and yours. I would like things to be changed - not just moved about, and pushed and bullied through.

All of Congress needs to step up, cut 20% of all of the various department budgets - including Defense -, and be accountable for the lack of being the "check and balance" of the overall government.

This has spun way out of control.

The Karxist policies this man has instituted into our national sphere are tearing us apart. We need action. Action for our freedom.
