#1 No surprises here, all very predictable. While it was originally not supposed to have been covered by the media, the President used last week's Democratic get-away in Williamsburg to lash out and vent his spleen... not to the assembled Dems, but to the American viewing public. He's major league butt hurt over the stimulous package hold up, and the declining lack of support by Americans as presented each evening on Fox News. His townhall meetings this week will attempt to repair the perception problem. I'm sure the attendees will be very carefully screened. It should be very interesting.

#2 especially if when the legislation fails to boost the economy and add jobs.


There, fixed it for ya.

By and large, the people this is designed to benefit aren't people without jobs who need them. No it's people who already have jobs or businesses that receive public sector checks - who are getting raises and increased income stream security.

#3 The Republicans need to stand firm against this porkfest. The ones that vote for it most likely will not have a seat the next election cycle since the economy will still be in the toilet.

#4 Seems to me he's got the job title confused, he's been elected "President" NOT GOD.

#5  "Who is this guy? Where is the Barack Obama who charmed the country and challenged it to greatness?

That's the guy we elected. That's the President we need. "


I hope to hell this is rhetorical, cause otherwise Mr. Goodwin is an ass. The "charmer" was a media packaged empty suit from day one.

Anyone who didn't see this was either brain dead, had a mortal case of BDS or just not looking.

"Let me eat my waffle!" "That's not the Rev. I knew" "typical white person" etc. etc. etc.

I just hope that we can survive the nightmare. Our best hope is a 2010 equal to 1994.

#6 CNN NEWS this AM > 2-WEEK PERFORMANCE SURVEY/ POLLS = generally, it strongly appears that POTUS OBAMA is still the OBAMESSIAH, i.e. OVERHWELMING MAJORITY OR THOSE POLLED BY CNN BELIEVE THE BAM-MAN IS DOING A GOOD OR GREAT JOB AS POTUS.

* OTOH, WORLD MILITARY FORUM [GOOGLE Chinglish translation] > DISCOVERED: OBAMA's ABSOLUTE PERSONAL IQ IS RATED AT 50 POINTS [as per POTUS Obama's affect and new Policy decisions on DUBYA-ERA[PRE-ELEX] + POST-JAN 2009 US Econ policies]??
