They're all liars. I voted for Obama but I'm skeptical of his crazed spending and I think Geitner is a joke and should resign.

His first couple of months haven't been a failure in any way. The man set out to bankrupt America, redistribute wealth, socialize debt, privatize profit on a corporate scale, restrict American citizen's Constitutional rights, and uplift globalism... and that progressive agenda is advancing very swiftly and successfully for him. His supporters expectations have been the failure, not his politics and beliefs. You bought the lie... simple as that.

Nice to meet you. Welcome to ATS.
I wouldn't feel let down. In rocky times I would expect an administration to have a rocky start. As for the President's behavior, just how much of it is being blown out of proportion?
I saw the clip of his Special Olympics comment on Leno. To me it seemed like he was responding to Jay's patronizing and falsely reassuring comment on his score: "Oh that's very good.. yah.. that's very good Mr President". So of course if Jay Leno is talking to you like you're "special", you should respond. His response just wasn't thought out unfortunately. I wish he would've said "Don't patronize me Jay."
As for laughing at the interview on 60 minutes? Not that big a deal actually. What he said made sense. "The only thing less popular then putting money in the banks, is putting money in the auto-industry." The idea is laughable. And he laughed. Kroft didn't think it was funny. The laugh startled him and threw him off his game of being in control of an interview, and to try and swing things back into his control he goes and insults the President of The United States.
Or am I just seeing things differently?

It seems that any type of talk about recession has died out since Obama has taken office, even though it has gotten worse, with the adding of more lost jobs, and higher prices all over. That is WHAT I SEE.
