    How Barack Obama Became Mr. Unpopular - Yahoo! News

    This is from Time Magazine! :eek: http://www.time.com/time/nation/article/0,8599,2015629,00.html?xid=rss-fullnation-yahoo

    When the lib media starts turning on Obama like that, you know Obama is in trouble! :eek::eek:

    Now, of course later in the article they do a bunch of CYA's because OF COURSE, it's not really "Obama's fault." Noooooooooo, of course not.

    But let's face it. Obama is not Mr. Wonderful anymore and the messiah liberals were hoping was going to take them to their socialst promised land.

    Instead, he turns out to be another Jimmy Carter. Full of talk and radical leftism, and not much else.

    :lol::lol::lol::lol:

    We elected a young inexperienced community organizer to the most powerful and important position in America (indeed the world) - and we expected good things?

    BINGO

    But you needed to have the adjective radical in there... a young, inexperienced, radical, community organizer

    People seemed to have forgotten...

    His original mantra was "change the way we do things in Washington"

    Sure, some of his most loyal supporters claim that it was "Change America"....but he did no say that until Novemeber 2008..

    It was always "change the way we do things in Washington"

    That is what helped him beat Hillary and that is what helped him beat McCain.

    Well, that being said...

    What has "CHANGED" in the way things are done in Washington?

    We still have lobbeyists in the WH
    We still have back room deals
    We still have bilions used to bribe votes on legislation
    We still hae partisanship...worse than I can ever rememeber
    We still have spending exceeding revenue
    We still have special interest groups reaping the rewards of Washington connections
    We still have press secretaries not answering questions

    What propelled him to the top was nothing but a bunch of crap and the people are seeing it...except for the hard core Obama supporters. They are blind to all mis-steps of his.

    You should also add a big dose of "people were so sick of Bush and the Reps" to your list.

    We also had a LSM that were so in the tank for this guy that they bought his bs hook, line and sinker. They never did any serious invesitgation of him at all.

    Yep. Folks bought his crap and we are all paying for it.

    Obama has no one to blame but himself for his steady drop in the polls. I wanted so badly for Obama to succeed. I wanted him to lead this proud nation the way she deserves to be lead.

    Unfortunately he is headed in the wrong direction. He has made many mistakes. Some of those are...

    1) Divides the parties further instead of bringing them together for the greater good of the nation.
    2) Appointed the absolute worst AG in American history.
    3) Let the New Black Panthers off the hook.
    4) Appointed an extreme, radical, inexperienced individual to the Supreme Court.
    5) His Stimulus plan has been a colossal failure.
    6) Pulling out of Iraq too soon.
    7) Apology-Fest.
    8) Interfering with the Arizona Immigration laws.
    9) Weak on illegal immigration.
    10) Obama Care
    11) Cash or Clunkers was a failure.
    12) Auto bailouts.

    Now Obama still has a chance to turn this ship around and leave us with a positive legacy but he's going to have to take a deep, moral inventory of himself to accomplish this.

    You know what Obama needs to do? He needs to reach out to Bill Clinton and ask for help. He needs to be mentored by Bill and get his guidance on how to right this ship. Clinton was a damn fine POTUS and someone Obama can trust. Let Bill be his political advisor. I would think Clinton would want to help Obama in any way he can.

    Obama has potential but he needs to knock off the bullshit and get serious. He needs to lead this country from the front. He needs to look back to us and say "Follow me."

    Bill Clinton didn't turn this economy around! :lol::lol::lol:

    Republicans turned the economy around by FORCING him to do the things necessary to fix it.

    We were in a recession until Republicans won in 1994.

    They forced Clinton to do Welfare Reform, Capital Gains Tax Cuts, and other things.

    THAT turned the economy around. Then Billy Boy had the nerve to take credit for it (when he ran in 1996) when he drug his feet like crazy not to sign any of it.

    Won't never happen.

    I would think Bill wants to live in the WH again, via Hillary.

    No, he doesn't.
