    He has been doing a relatively good job since taking office. The biggest problem he has is that he assumes that the American public is intelligent and can understand his ideas without explanation.

    That is simply not the case.

    He's doing as best he can with what he was given. Give it time things won't get better in a snap of a finger, but in strides. At least CHANGES were made.

    With what he was handed, and compared to other GOP administrations he is doing ok, and will continue despite the obstruction of the GOP.

    Prices keep on rising and the dollar is going down in value because of the quantitive easing thing that they did. The more time that Obama is in office the worse things get and you ask me this? No Obama is not doing a good job he never has and he never will.

    Truth is Bush will go down in history as one of the worst presidents every, and Obama very likely the best president. If not the best, he is doing a heck of a job cleaning up after 8 years of failed big government trickle down Bush economics. Obama has another 5 years to get this country back on track after regressives drove it and the world down a deep muddy ditch.

    You'd be a fool to think that today's problems are not directly linked to Bush's disastrous trickle down economy and cronie deregulations. The democratic majority in congress was only for the last two years when people started to seriously see how damaging Bush was. The free fall of the economy had already started when democrats was given the power in congress.

    I guess he is doing alright. I certainly couldn't do any better. but I'm angry with him because not too long ago a friend of mines brother was in Germany for the military and he got onan early bus and the bus he was supposed to be on ended up having an Egyptian man who shot all his friends and all Obama said was that it was "frowned upon"

    We had record unemployment rates before Obama took office. Obama set the environment for stopping this free fall and in the last 6 month we have had job growth in America. We are slowly getting out of the deep hole republicans drove us into.

    Unemployment was below 5% most of Bush's term --Now it's over 10%--Obama should stop blaming others for his mistakes

    But I was talking about the rate at which people were laid off. Hundreds of thousands of people were laid off each month at the end of Bush's time in office. Today we are seeing growth, slow, but still growth. That is recovery. If Obama did NOTHING we would still see hundred of thousands of people being laid off. But Obama has turned this sinking ship around and we are recovering. If we didn't have the huge opposition from the right we would be much farther into recover today.

    HISTORIC HEALTH REFORM:
    After a long, thorough and transparent process, we have passed the most historic health insurance reform legislation in history. Before now, seven presidents had tried, and seven had failed to reform our broken system. This legislation, which includes bipartisan ideas, is historic.
    • This reform is the most significant piece of economic and social legislation since FDR signed the Social Security Act in the 1930s, and the largest expansion of health care since Medicare helped to transform the lives of America’s seniors in the 1960s.

    • The bill provides stability and security to Americans who have insurance, affordable options for those who don’t, and lower costs for families, businesses and our country as a whole.

    • It provides the largest middle class tax cut for health care in our history and brings greater accountability to health care by laying out common sense rules of the road to keep premiums down and prevent insurance industry abuses and denial of care.

    RECOVERY ACT:
    President Obama inherited the worst economic crisis in a generation, and our country was teetering on the edge of a second Great Depression.
    • The economy was losing nearly 800,000 jobs a month
    • Banks were in crisis and our credit markets were frozen

    RECOVERY ACT:
    President Obama inherited the worst economic crisis in a generation, and our country was teetering on the edge of a second Great Depression.
    • The economy was losing nearly 800,000 jobs a month
    • Banks were in crisis and our credit markets were frozen
    • $10 trillion in wealth had been destroyed in the stock market
    Since taking office, President Obama has been working hard to stabilize our economy, put us on the road to recovery, and rebuild a new, stronger foundation for long term growth.
    President Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the most sweeping economic recovery plan in American history. Because of the Recovery Act:
    • Up to 2 million jobs have been funded so far – and the bill is on track to result in 3.5 million jobs by the end of 2010.
    • 95 percent of working families are receiving the Making Work Pay tax credit in their paychecks.
    • More than 7 million low and moderate-income students will receive a 15 percent increase in their Pell Grant awards to help pay for college.
    • And thousands of teachers, law enforcement officials and firefighters have been able to stay working because of the billions of dollars in Recovery Act assistance made available to state and local governments.

    CHILDREN’S HEALTH INSURANCE:
    President Obama re-authorized and expanded health insurance for four million more low income children through the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), an action President Bush vetoed twice. Now, 11 million children are covered under SCHIP.

    JOB CREATION:
    President Obama signed into law the first of many bipartisan jobs bills being worked on in Congress. The measure builds on the economic progress already achieved by the Recovery Act and put more Americans back to work by offering small businesses tax cuts in exchange for hiring workers and funding for bond and highway programs.

    CREDIT CARD REFORM:
    Last year, President Obama signed bipartisan comprehensive credit card reform into law – the Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility and Disclosure Act (CARD). This helps level the playing field by stopping unfair credit card company practices that have been confusing and unfair to American families for far too long.

    TOBACCO LEGISLATION:
    President Obama signed into law the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act, which gives the FDA broad authority to regulate the manufacturing and marketing of tobacco products.

    NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR COMMUNITY SERVICE:
    The President signed a national service bill to create hundreds of thousands of opportunities for people to serve their communities.

    STEM CELL RESEARCH:
    President Obama lifted a ban on federal funding of stem cell research, ensuring that scientific decisions are based on facts, not ideology.

    FAIR PAY FOR WOMEN:
    Upon taking office, President Obama signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, finally guaranteeing equal pay for equal work.

    HATE CRIMES PREVENTION ACT:
    President Obama signed into law the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, legislation that extends new federal protections to people who are victims of violent crime because of their gender, sexual orientation or identity, or disability.


    SONIA SOTOMAYOR:
    President Obama’s first Supreme Court nominee, Sonia Sotomayor, was confirmed and seated. Justice Sotomoyor brings more federal judicial experience to the Supreme Court than any justice in 100 years. She is the Court’s first Latina justice and the third woman to serve.

    RESTORING OUR REPUTATION:
    President Obama has taken critical steps to strengthen our alliances and restore our reputation around the world. The Obama Administration has prohibited torture and begun the work of leaving Iraq to its people. The President has outlined a new strategy to fight al Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan, with a clear goal of goal of disrupting, dismantling and defeating al Qaeda and its extremist allies.

    FINANCIAL REGULATORY REFORM:
    The President will continue to work on reforming our financial regulatory system by building on the strengths of our current regulatory structure and correcting its flaws. Reform will give regulators the tools they need to respond quickly to any future crisis, and to prevent that crisis from causing widespread harm.

    REFORMING EDUCATION:
    President Obama is working to reform our education system, through innovative programs like “Race to the Top” and “Educate to Innovate,” inspiring new teachers and giving American students the tools they need to be successful in the global economy.

    BUILDING A CLEAN ENERGY ECONOMY:
    President Obama will continue to work with Congress to forge a new energy policy that will break our dependence on foreign oil, jumpstart our clean energy economy with the creation of millions of new good, green jobs and finally address the dangerous carbon pollution that causes climate change and threatens our planet. Last year, the President announced new national emissions and fuel efficiency standards for American cars and light trucks and played a crucial role in brokering the Copenhagen Accord, a critical step in addressing the climate crisis.

    REPEALING DON’T ASK, DON’T TELL:
    The President has pledged to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and legislation is beginning the process of moving through the House and Senate. Last year, the President signed a presidential memorandum that extends key federal benefits to the same-sex partners of Foreign Service and executive branch government employees. This was just one step, but it is a critical one – and it paves the way for long-overdue progress.

    And lately got the LARGEST BUDGET CUT IN HISTORY without allowing the moronic SOCIAL and non-budget riders attached!
