Analysis: Obama recovery plans sowing some unease
And while his personal popularity remains high, some economists and lawmakers are beginning to question whether Obama’s agenda of increased government activism is helping, or hurting, by sowing uncertainty among businesses, investors and consumers that could prolong the recession.
Remember the warnings about tax & spend? Now it’s spend first, tax later.
Because all he got was a set of DVDs. Barack Obama, the leader of the world’s richest country, gave the Prime Minister a box set of 25 classic American films – a gift about as exciting as a pair of socks
The Prime Minister gave Mr Obama an ornamental pen holder made from the timbers of the Victorian anti-slave ship HMS Gannet.
Wow, those DVD’s really don’t look so hot of a gift now, eh? We can only hope he was smart enough to buy him the correct region! Otherwise, he won’t be able to play them!!!
Polling data show that Mr. Obama’s approval rating is dropping and is below where George W. Bush was in an analogous period in 2001. Rasmussen Reports data shows that Mr. Obama’s net presidential approval rating — which is calculated by subtracting the number who strongly disapprove from the number who strongly approve — is just six, his lowest rating to date.
What did you expect to happen? The media can’t keep covering for his mistakes forever! The people are bound to see what an incompetent fool they elected!!!
China said on Tuesday that a U.S. Navy ship involved in a confrontation with its fleet off the southern island of Hainan had violated international and Chinese laws.
Anyone else remember when China tested Bush in 2001? Why do we consider them ‘friends’? You can do what you like, but I’m going to avoid Chinese made products like the plague.
President Barack Obama, sounding weary of criticism over federal earmarks, defended Congress’ pet projects Wednesday as he signed an “imperfect” $410 billion measure with thousands of examples. But he said the spending does need tighter restraint and listed guidelines to do it. Obama, accused of hypocrisy by Republicans for embracing billions of dollars of earmarks in the legislation, said they can be useful and noted that he has promised to curb, not eliminate them.
Earmarks can be useful? You’d never think of it that way after listening him complain during the campaign! Didn’t he say he was going to go ‘line by line’ to get rid of wasteful earmarks? Ah, but yet another lie by our ‘leader’.
Heads should be rolling at the White House for the embarrassing series of flubs that have overshadowed President Obama’s first seven weeks in office and given the scattered, demoralized Republicans a huge boost toward regrouping and resurrection.
I’d say when you see the lefties complaining about him then you have to know the righties were right. We tried to warn you!!! Work with us, will ya???

Everyone Bailing from the Sinking Obama Ship
Three of Barack Obama’s nominations for key government positions have withdrawn from the running on a single day in another blow to his faltering attempts to fill his administration.
The gap leave Timothy Geithner, the US Treasury Secretary, battling the worst economist crisis since the Great Depression with none of his 17 deputies even named. Each one has to be confirmed by the US Senate, a process that usually takes weeks.
Nobody wants to climb aboard a sinking ship. What happened to all the hype hope?
And for the height of hypocrisy:
White House says economy is sound despite ‘mess’
The economy is fundamentally sound despite the temporary “mess” it’s in, the White House said Sunday in the kind of upbeat assessment that Barack Obama had mocked as a presidential candidate.
During the fall campaign, Obama relentlessly criticized his Republican opponent, Sen. John McCain, for declaring, “The fundamentals of our economy are strong.” Obama’s team painted the veteran senator as out of touch and failing to grasp the challenges facing the country.
Oh really? So was McCain really out of touch, or did he really know the truth? You won’t see Honest Obama apolgize for smearing him, eh? Oh how you fools fell for his lies!
