Everyone bitching about the president: Shut the hell up. He tried to do what he thought was best for his country and you just sit there on your **** and complain. His situation was crap going in but at least he is trying to fix it and you elected him! If you cant vote then its not your problem yet any way so shut up. If you want something to change, get up and do something. amirite?

First of all just because you can't vote doesn't make it not your problem. If i could vote I would. The decisions the president makes will change my life whether i like it or not. And you need to stop your bitching about bitching.

while i know there are some people who complain way too much, not everyone voted for him. i agree with what you're saying, people need to make a change if they want a change. However, some people are unable to make a change. Futhermore, I think it's fair to let my generation be a little miffed, we're getting hung out to dry on this one.

The shadow of the recession will be apparent for the next decade. The economy has to get worse before it can get better. It cannot be fixed in a matter of months or even a matter of years. Slowly, our situation will improve. Both the national and global economy have already shown minor signs of recovery. I only wish people would realize how slow this process will take. You can disagree with his policies, but Obama is doing everything in his power to reverse the course of our failing nation.

To put it simply: Bush's spending put America into an economic hole; Obama's spending is trying to dig us out of the economic hole.

Bush did not focus his spending on fixing the economy until late into his second term. He simply spent money on his policies, which turned into economic failures. Meanwhile, the focus of Obama's spending is on fixing the economy.

Hopefully that makes sense.

Bush spent the majority of his budget on defense and wars, while doing very little to save the housing bubble/economy. The majority of Obama's spending is being spent to revive the economy he inherited, through such programs as his stimulus package and his investments in jobs and education.

I am aware that you can have a socialist democratic country. I am arguing the fact that America was built on Capitalism and the ability to go from nothing to something with one idea. Obama, while not proposing outright to ban all private enterprises, is doing a hell of alot against it, which then is only making our debt bigger, faster. He needs to promote the small businesses which he is NOT doing (when he is promoting his socialist ideals) if America is to get back on its feet.

He won the election, but that doesn't mean everybody in the country voted for him, and just because somebody can't vote doesn't mean they shouldn't be concerned. What this guy does is going to affect our entire country's population. Saying that you don't have to be worry just because you're young is ignorant.

Plus, a big part of democracy is the idea of there being more than one opinion. In telling anyone critical of the president to shut up, you should also be telling anyone relentlessly singing his praises (such as you) to shut up, too, to be completely fair.

And how is the health care bill supposed to get us out of recession? As far as I can tell, it's basically forcing insurance companies to insure everyone. Anyone who knows how insurance works can tell you that that will push prices higher. When people are spending their money on insurance bills and not consumer goods, we aren't going to even break the surface of this recession.

(Proud American): Do you even know what it is? Healthcare would be payed for through taxes, meaning YOU wont have to pay for insurance directly-you probly dont know cus your probly under your parents insurance still (the healthcare bill would allow you to be under your rents till your 25 btw) . Yes taxes may be a bit higher but it would be paying for insurance. Just wait till you are not covered by your parents anymore, and you get injured or sick-then you have to pull 5000 out of you **** for the hospital. If they regulated and taxed marijuana that would generate over 10 billion in tax revenue each year and that would be a consumer good many would be happy to buy.

Ah, so you're one of those people that believe that Obama is going to get money out of nowhere to pay for everyone's healthcare? I know you mentioned taxes, but there's a problem with that - they don't generate the funds necessary to pay for every sick person in America. We're already in a major deficit, complements of several presidents, (including your beloved Obama), and adding another bill onto the already overwhelming list of things our government isn't going to help the economy, including YOU. Or are you one of those people that live off of welfare? Also, regarding the marijuana, do you think that the entire legislative body will agree to include that? It's hard enough getting a state to do it, let alone a country. So for your idealist agenda, you have failed.

(Proud American): Just for the record I do not worship Obama, and no I do not live off welfare. I dont believe he is going to pull money out of his ** either. Its kinda lame to assume shit like that about people, like every person for the health care bill is some poor lazy that wants to live straight off of the government. I just think its a bit messed up that more people die a year from not having health insurance than people die a year from cigarettes. It's worked for Canada, and its working for Australia-where you can basically chose to have private insurance but if you dont you are covered. Some people have legitimate disabilities and can not have a good job, not everyone it a lazy ** like you think. You would feel dandy if you saw someone you love refuse to go to the hospital because they can not afford it. I agree it can probly be re-written and tweaked, maybe we are not ready for it but I just think it would be better for us, at least I'm compassionate.

(Proud American): Also regarding marijuana: Of coarse it wont happen instantly on a national level. California will probly go first, or perhaps another western state. Although prop 19 did not pass, it will definitely be back in 2012. Not enough people went out to vote for it, but the fact that it was there made a big difference. But If one state does do it, and it works out well, the dominoes shall fall. Also, the least they can do is decriminalize it.

My dad lost his job when a democratic governor was elected and it did affect us, so in this recent election my dad voted republican. But just cus of that it doesnt mean I voted republican (I actually voted libertarian, so it was neither) I am just saying that you can have your own opinion so long as YOU formed it, from your own readings/findings rather than just what your parents think. My biggest issue is rich kids that automatically side with their parents cus their parents dont want to pay a wee bit more on their taxes, these kids dont realize that they are not going to be rich when they move out on their own. I'm not rich so I dont care as much about things that I dont need.

Obama has thus far capitalized on few of the campaign promises he made. Many people on this thread have said it is a process and can't be changed in a matter of 2 year. why was his campaign slogan "change" then? if he couldn't change it why did he run under that word?

Also, for those of you bashing Bush, feel free to bash your congress, as it was democratic for most of Bush's time in office.

Bush couldn't change the Clinton loan mandate, which stated fannie may and freddy mac needed to make loans to people who were unqualified. these toxic loans began trickling down to town banks (this is why the government bailed out the banks, if they hadn't we would all be screwed)

What I'm saying is obama isn't as good as he said he would be. "getmo" is open, the war is waging, the economy is still in shambles, taxes went up, and the health care bill didn't get passed. great job.
