Watching it as I write a paper... So far, he's doing okay. I'm really hoping he follows through with his plan to veto any bill with earmarks. >.>
I'm not back. This idiot just upset me which made me stop lurking.

Obama's a very good public speaker. I found his speech rather inspiring. I just wish he would follow through on all of his promises. There's a thin hope there, but it is there.

Interesting how people will blame Obama for not pulling through with something when it isn't entirely up to him to get something done. He has to go through certain other branches of government.

I admire the fact that he is willing to sit down and talk things through with people. That he is willing to compromise if it means getting things moving in the right direction. Of course he isn't going to get everything done, it is absurd to expect him to... However, he's doing a good job.

He's not as bad of a president as people make him out to be. he's actually fairly decent. I also think he's a man of good character, and it is fairly obvious that he is intelligent.

Hell, I'd vote for him again in 2012. Especially if the Republicans continue their habit of picking wankers and morons to run for them.

Some basic information for those of us not familiar with U.S. government. The other "branches" he has to go through is the legislative branch. For the last two years he has been able to pass anything he wanted, as the republicans lacked the numbers in both the house and the senate to block an legislation.

You're of course also assuming that his healthcare plan and expansion of government are good for the country which I think most people agree they are not.

Most people are also stupid, so who cares what most people think?

He hasn't expanded government in any way that negatively effects me. And for the record, what is wrong with the healthcare plan?

Can't Rupert Murdoch and Frank Luntz just upload their talking points straight into our brains. I'm tired of hearing them over and over again.

What did Jindal do that was so bad?

I'll just give you one problem, It forces every American to buy insurance. They set a precedent that inaction falls into the the commerce clause and that its an enumerated power of the Federal Government to regulate it. Thus opening the door to endless possibilities for expansion and crushing individual liberty.

Obama has that certain je ne sais quoi. He delivers some of the most elegant speeches I've seen, and he's quick on his feet. He makes our country look good.

Alan Keyes is a bigot and an imbecile. Please don't compare him to the only honest and principled politician in DC.
