I agree. It is a bit ridiculous all these Obama bashers. I personally didn't vote for the guy, but am am no fool to think all the current problems are his alone. Now some blame could be pointed at him for maintaining the status quo. He should have dismantled the status quo at the start to solve the looming debt crisis. I have criticisms for the guy, but will not isolate him as if he is the problem. Presidents can not do much when the congress fails to hand them legislation. Many people that bash Obama point to the fact that he has done nothing, yet fail to realize it is the congress and senate that control legislation and the legislative branch is the main thing that is wrong in this country. No President can change this. Too many special interests involved in keeping certain congressional leaders in power.

Do you think it takes 1 person to do a presidential speach?

It wouldnt shock me if you all do, you think it takes one person to ruin the nation.


Oh no, I am fully aware that 95% of congress are to blame...but if I was in Obama's shoes, i'd be hiding under the bed about now too!

I am not happy with alot of what Obama has done, but yeah this place is a joke and these people "team players".. Nothing more, nothing less. They are part of the trouble, a huge part of it.

A default would have stopped spending and a quick restructure of the budget.

Seriously though . . . how much prep time can it actually take to say . . . We don't suck, we're just victims of circumstance . . .. Maybe there's more to this chit-chat. If not, his sense of urgence is very telling.

He doesnt know how to lead, or to be prompt. This whole mess is not his fault, but he has done nothing to fix it. Both parties are to blame for the current mess, and personally come election time every incumbent should be gone. Clean house.

Default would have got us downgraded by all the credit companies.. Dont listen to me though, i was only sitting around saying you are driving us to downgrade before it happened and people didnt listen then either.

You are kinda like FOX news, just because you talk alot doesnt make it true.
