Even as he conceded there is still much hard work to do, President Obama was in a boastful mood Wednesday night, telling a star-studded crowd at a fundraising dinner that he "would put these first four months up against any prior administration since FDR."

Obama in L.A.: 'You ain't seen nothing yet
Oh crap! That's what I'm agraid of!
Hey .. he just let everyone know he has even bigger plans then nationalization of all our banks and major industries, and the generational theft act of bailouts, etc etc
And just what are those bigger plans that cause him to say - you ain't seen nothing yet'??? Be afraid! Be very afraid!
In terms of back peddling, money spending, cabinent resignations or private buisness take overs.
Actually hes kinda right...we HAVEN'T seen ANYTHING yet!!
"One of them said, 'Obama, keep your promise,' and I thought that's fair," he said. "I don't know which promise he was talking about."
The crowd cracked up.

Chains we can believe in
A record 12 percent of homeowners with a mortgage are behind on their payments or in foreclosure as the housing crisis spreads to borrowers with good credit. And the wave of foreclosures isn't expected to crest until the end of next year, the Mortgage Bankers Association said Thursday.
Important as these questions of funding and partisanship are, the larger point is that Obama’s ties to Acorn — arguably the most politically radical large-scale activist group in the country — are wide, deep, and longstanding. If Acorn is adept at creating a non-partisan, inside-game veneer for what is in fact an intensely radical, leftist, and politically partisan reality, so is Obama himself. This is hardly a coincidence: Obama helped train Acorn’s leaders in how to play this game. For the most part, Obama seems to have favored the political-insider strategy, yet it’s clear that he knew how to play the in-your-face “direct action” game as well. And surely during his many years of close association with Acorn, Obama had to know what the group was all about.
The shame of it is that when the L. A. Times returned to Obama’s stomping grounds, it found the park he’d helped renovate reclaimed by drug dealers and thugs. The community organizer strategy may generate feel-good moments and best-selling books, but I suspect a Wal-Mart as the seed-bed of a larger shopping complex would have done far more to save the neighborhood where Obama worked to organize in the “progressive” fashion. Unfortunately, Obama’s Acorn cronies have blocked that solution.
In any case, if you’re looking for the piece of the puzzle that confirms and explains Obama’s network of radical ties, gather your Acorns this spring. Or next winter, you may just be left watching the “President from Acorn” at his feast.
This guy makes Bill Clinton look like a paragon of integrity and follow-through.
From health care to torture to the economy to war, Obama has reneged on pledges real and implied. So timid and so owned is he that he trembles in fear of offending, of all things, the government of Turkey. Obama has officially reneged on his campaign promise to acknowledge the Armenian genocide. When a president doesn’t have the nerve to annoy the Turks, why does he bother to show up for work in the morning?
Obama is useless. Worse than that, he’s dangerous. Which is why, if he has any patriotism left after the thousands of meetings he has sat through with corporate contributors, blood-sucking lobbyists and corrupt politicians, he ought to step down now — before he drags us further into the abyss.
I refer here to Obama’s plan for “preventive detentions.”

The more this guy does (or does not do I should say) the more afraid I get. How anyone still supports this clown is beyond me. Now his administration is closing Chrysler dealerships based on their owner's political donations. At the rate were going he will have nationalized every industry and practically be in total control of everything in the US by the end of the year. Next up is the banks and healthcare and then guns and then guess what? He pretty much becomes a dictator.
I knew he was going to be bad but I had no clue he would do things this quickly. It's almost like he has a gigantic vacuum in DC that is sucking up everything in the country. It's time to hit the off switch.

I suggest a slight alteration of that statement:
Chains we can bereave in.
