Honestly i think Obama and Bush and McCain are the same. They dont care about us at all. I have friends that think everything is going to get better automatically because Obama is there. But the truth is hes not going to care about us more than Bush did or any other president. I think that people think hes going to be better because hes black, which means he had to deal with alot more and will care about "his people", or because he grew up poor. And from what Im seeing now, hes not showing that he cares, at all. I think stuff is going to get worse, and everyone will see that hes not as great as people think he is. Don't get me wrong if I was 18 I would have voted for Ron Paul. But I still think Obama was the second best choice. What do you think?

I pegged him the first time I saw/listened to him. Call it a sixth sense but I knew he was talking out of both sides of his mouth and I told everyone my family and friends how I felt. I am not one to say Told You So but they are ALL saying now that I was right about Obama.

I think it is pitiful how especially black people thought this guy was automatically going to CHANGE their world for the better. He is changing it alright, but not like they thought. Some of them thought if we have a black president they would become well off. Well quite a lesson learned here for the future college sociology books.

"Better" does not necessarily equate to "good."

Karl Denninger still thinks that voting for Obama over McCain was a no-brainer, and he hasn't exactly been showering Obama with praise.

Didn't vote for him, but I knew from the moment he picked Geithner as Sec Tres that he was just another marionette like Bush or McCain. The puppet masters are the same.

People voted for Obama because he promised socialism. He is the 21st century version of Robbing Hoodlum. Essentially, he bribed the voters that were looking for handouts with promises of kickbacks and bribes, promises of what the government can do for them, instead of asking what you can do for your country. The other candidates simply didn't promise enough goodies to entice enough voters.

A career politicians goal is to get elected, to get the job, and they will do and say whatever is necessary to get elected, even blatantly lie. A politician that doesn't promise the voters some kind of bribe or kickback will never get elected, thus our system of (so-called) democracy insures only liars and bribers will ever get elected.

There should be a law against career politicians. There should be some law that states nobody can hold an electable position for more than maybe 4 or 8 years! That alone would flush out a lot of government corruption.

Because he's labeled a (D).

Get an (R) to "screw up" and the people will cry for a (D).

Give the (D) a chance to "screw up" and the people will cry for an (R).

Of course neither are "screwing up" and are instead doing exactly what they planned to do and the stupid people keep thinking "this time it'll be different".

It's a game the global-socialists like to play with the idiot voters.

My best friend is black well half black, not that it matters, but on inauguration day hes like lets go watch our black president. I thought to my self what difference does that make, and I told him Obama is NOT going to care about you any more than any other president. So i think people want him to be one of those anti authority, hardcore, rapper like guys.

It makes a difference, psychologically. The next generation won't be limited by the belief that America would never elect a black President.

Honestly, if you have a choice between two candidates who don't care about you, and aren't going to do the right things, and all else is equal anyway...why not be happy to get the one who will at least remove psychological road-blocks for your children?

Incidentally, one of my friends (who's black) is convinced that Obama is the anti-Christ.

This is true, but Im 16 and I can see that every one has this hope that hes going to give them money so they can move out of there apartments and be able to afford groceries. What if he makes everything worse and we are scared and more ignorant and think that the same thing will happen if theres another black president? I could see that happening.

do people really believe he was actually elected? i think blacks are like 16% of the population. it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that one out.

shouldn't be much of a surprise. bush wasn't elected either. there was testimony before congress about how the machines are rigged. i think everyone that voted should be sent a hammer by first class mail so they can beat themselves with it.

even ron paul is full of it. i'll admit i believed him, but it was superficial. no politician is trustworthy, ever.

oh help us help us.. that's just what they want you to say. don't get me wrong i'm no activist. but i know nothing's going to happen unless you do it yourself.

I doubt "every one" thinks Obama is better. But those that do most likely have placed their "Hope" that he IS better. All he has to do now is prove to them that he is not and that their hope has been misplaced.

Tommy Shaw for president!

Peace.

But is every one really that brainwashed that they cant tell the truth from a lie? I mean I didnt realize it at first but hes exactly the same as any one else would have been or has been. People Ive seen act like hes jesus.

1. He didn't grow up poor. Poor kids don't attend private schools and then go on to Harvard.

2. People follow him because they're sheep. He became "cool" and "trendy" and some folks out there just can't stand to be outside the trends, so they flocked to him.

3. People don't like to be proven wrong, so they continue to cling to the man and keep trying to blame all of today's problems on yesterday's administration. Bottom line, when today's administration open their mouths, the market reacts very negatively. At the least, that demonstrates that Obama is just as poor a handler of the economy as Bush, at most he's far, far worse and in that case, we're screwed... Sheeple and nonsheeple alike.

I'm not about to judge the guy just yet...he has only got started at his new role. Hopefully he will turn out better than worse. I don't disagree with him on every issue, but there are times when he should not let public ignorance get in his way of accomplishing what is necessary.

Here's an interesting one-month comparison.

Obama has the same approval as GW Bush one month in, but his disapproval rating is second only to Clinton.

Karl Denninger talked extensively with the McCain team and KNEW that they would not do the right things to fix the economy.

He voted for Obama so that this economic crash would come SOONER rather than LATER, completely confident that Obama would totally screw things up and facilitate the collapse.

You have to read more than just the tickers to understand KD
