I think reports of the failure might be grossly exaggerated, but he sure seems to be headed in that direction with the "pork stimulus" and other remedies that won't work as this article suggests ... from the Financial Times

'Has Barack Obama’s presidency already failed? In normal times, this would be a ludicrous question. But these are not normal times. They are times of great danger. Today, the new US administration can disown responsibility for its inheritance; tomorrow, it will own it. Today, it can offer solutions; tomorrow it will have become the problem. Today, it is in control of events; tomorrow, events will take control of it. Doing too little is now far riskier than doing too much. If he fails to act decisively, the president risks being overwhelmed, like his predecessor. The costs to the US and the world of another failed presidency do not bear contemplating.'

Its been proved that throwing money at this problem is not the solution. He is following the Bush Administration to the T!
I'd say IMO, one more mistake/screw up this administration is considered a failure....

Heck no, Barry is right on track.<IMHO>

When a candidate for public office faces the voters he does not face men of sense; he faces a mob of men whose chief distinguishing mark is the fact that they are quite incapable of weighing ideas, or even of comprehending any save the most elemental men whose whole thinking is done in terms of emotion, and whose dominant emotion is dread of what they cannot understand. So confronted, the candidate must either bark with the pack or be lost... All the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most devious and mediocre the man who can most adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum.' The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron. -- H L Mencken, Baltimore Sun (26 July 1920)

Most of the crowds were cheering when the stimulus passed and Obama announced that.

Obama thinks he is a success.

The collapse of the dollar will change everything.

Obama must know he's causing this to happen, he's not dumb.

People I work with are still saying "Give him a chance." :rolleyes:

So they believed in the "Change" hype and he is following suit just as GWB and they will still support him in this "Bush" move. (Gov. spending to fix economy) :rolleyes:

Guess some people will never wake up.... :mad:

That is by far one of the most disturbing sites Ive ever seen. When the bullets start flying, they may have a target over their heads.

you mean the Fred Thomson forums, not Huckabee, right?

Huckster was actually the only other republican candidate to have enough grassroots support to warrant even having a forum.

Actually, they had forums for both.
