    This president is veering wildly to and fro these days, and at present, we see a White House completely stunned to the point of near-panic.

    Obama's listless, tired, and uncertain teleprompted talk today (how many times does he do this?) of going after the banks yet again, only resulted in those bank stocks declining, and the economy as a whole contracting - the very opposite of what Americans seeking jobs need right now.

    I offer this:

    President Obama is totally failing both on the economy, and national security - the two most vital components of any president's ultimate success. He is completely out of his depth, is surrounded by far too many leftist idealogues who have no clue on what constitutes sound governing for the good of the people vs the good of the ideology. He cannot control the far left Congressional leadership, which has driven the Democrat brand name off the cliff.

    Obama lacks the intellect to construct his own original views on any policy matter, rather falling back repeatedly on progressive cliche that is the essence of what limited political experience he has.

    What little economic recovery that has happened has done so despite Obama, not because of him, or his fellow Democrat policies - namely the special interest laden $800 billion dollar porkulus bill. Now as Obama continues to mouth his progressive anti-free market rhetoric, even this shallow recovery is endangered. Yet another troubling jobless report today, consecutive triple digit stock market declines, and a banking industry frozen in uncertainty over what this bereft of common sense administration and Congress is planning next.

    Simply put - Obama sucks.

    Link to latest jobless claims...

    In its report on jobless claims, the Labor Department said initial claims for unemployment aid rose by 36,000 to a seasonally adjusted 482,000. Wall Street economists had expected a small drop, according to Thomson Reuters.The four-week average, which smooths fluctuations, rose for the first time since August, to 448,250.

    It's worse than that, I am afraid. He is deliberately going out of his way to do what he can to undermine our country's economy. "Spreading the wealth around is good for everybody" is more than just a statement to him; it's his entire theme straight out of the directives laid out in Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals." It's too bad soooo many people were ensnared by his charisma over the course of his presidential campaign and did not pay attention to the many warning signs that continually emerged with regularity. They have made this horrid bed and now must lie in it. Unfortunately for the rest of us though, we must lie in it too. JMO.

    Who claimed if we just did not read the 800 BILLION dollar bill and signed it NOW we would not see unemployment exceed 8 percent? Who has claimed all year unemployment would go DOWN not up? Who is President with a fully democratic Congress?

    Back in 2007, jobless claims were around 320,000 - anything below 330,000 is considered a sign of a strong economy.

    Obama has generated no net job growth despite spending TRILLIONS - and repeatedly claiming the dubious title of "jobs saved".

    The Obama administration has attacked the free market since Day One - and the American people are suffering greatly for it.

    In 20 months Obama's deficit spending is equal to GW Bush's EIGHT YEARS. And Obama's ten year budget projections, if allowed, will add to that deficit by nearly 300%

    Yes indeed - Obama does truly suck...

    What? You guys surprised that liberal Democrats can't seem to get there feces in one sack? Doesn't surprise me. For those that can think for themselves, it's common knowledge.:lol:
