Hey ricardo welcome to the BV, glad you are jumping right into it, I think we will see alot of you here.
I think Obama is a big disappointment, and think the Democratic Congress when they controled it were even worse. I also think that the Current Congress with some Republican seats refilled as a message from the voters, isn't much better. The one proven thing is that the President with a majority Congress failed and put us deeper into a mess. Their ideas have been a complete failure, from the cash for clunkers programs, to increasing the Debt far more than Bush, and athe bailouts that did not trickle down to normal folks. They gave billions to the auto industry, even after every CEO flew to Washington in private corp; jets to get it. They made a stupid dog and pony show out of sending them home, and told fly back in coach class and we will still give you the money. In the banking bailout, AIG was given billions, and caught within a month or so having a lavish "reorganization" convention is San Diego, in a 5 star hotel, with lavish food, liquer, suites. All the CEO's still got annual multi million dollar bonus anyway. Some simply left the company, taking huge severances, in the $50M stock holding ranges. HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS FROM BAILOUT MONEY.
Obama has been a disaster, and he is hiding the real scope of it by showing false unemployment numbers, as job growth. Manipulating figures is something big business is good at, and governments. Oh boy! unemployment is under 10% now, people are back to work. Bullshit! unemployment benifits have run out, people have been forced to start social security early to get money,(babyboomers)or they end up on welfare counts after unemployment runs out. Point is they drop off the unemployment number of checks given out, and go onto other statistics. Add them all togather and what is the numbers? NO JOB growth and more people affected.
I don't want to think about the condition of SS and medicare, which I start in March. The hidden little parts of using medicare for programs to insure the uninsured, just sucks. We paid into this for our old age, and they are stealing it from us, to fund welfare programs. Who will cash in on it, will be 10 Million illegals in this country to begin with. It will just become another handout for those who have mastered the handout systems.
I don't even want to think about what Obama has made this country look like with his apologies to the world, and blunders in foriegn policy, stupid mistakes directly engaging Russia and Iran, to made fools of. His stance on hiding as a NATO participant in the Libya misison, and not standing up as the USA. He acts like we are a 3rd rate nation, and presents us in the same light to the world.
The voters wanted no more Hawks in the Whitehouse, they wanted Doves in the last election. How did that work out with Obama, Polosi, and Harry Ried at the top? It was a disaster, and the Democrats own it, they had total control of everything, and even had the odasity to Lock Repubicans out of Congressional meetings, and met privately. That is the biggest outrage of all, and unconstitutional thing Obama has allowed. THAT ACT ALONE, BLOCKED YOUR STATES REPRENTATION IN CONGRESS, THE MOST IMPORTANT FUNDEMENTAL PART OF THE CONSTITUTION. THAT EVERY STATE WILL HAVE EQUAL VOICE IN CONGRESS. WE all think about the Bill of Rights, and disregard these kind of issues, defined completly in the same Constitution. They actually preceed the Bill of Rights in the Document. Checks and balances, 3 branches of Government, all powers and restictions are in black and white, read it.
