A lot of people have conveniently forgotten in just what a bad state the previous administration left this country, not only in the economy but in the eyes of the rest of the world. Obama has been on the job for not quite six months. Some Republicans love to say, "If Obama is so good, why is the economy still bad?" Be serious, what was he supposed to get done immediately, when the Republicans are trying to block every initiative he unveils?

So here's what you can tell your guy. He has helped to keep the American auto industry running, he has helped to get some irresponsible corporate executives replaced with more responsible leaders, and he has so far markedly improved the status of the US around the world, especially in the middle east, by being not as clueless as his predecessor.

People need to get off his back. Screwing up the U.S. took a lot of years, there's no way Obama can be expected to fix it in a matter of months. No one sees what he's doing behind closed doors, we only see what the biased media shows us. I don't think there will be much changes in his entire term but this is not his doing, he's got a big mess to clean up.

You're bf is right, Obama loves communists, as he says in his writings, and is working hard to make our economy a socialistic one. As for putting you down, that's just not right and he should get off his high horse. Millions voted for Obama. Millions are regretful for doing so. But regret and put-downs doesn't do anyone any good. Tell him to get over it.

Well, for many he gave the belief of hope again...
I have seen more smiles on a lot of people faces since he has been in.
Some even believe that their life is going to really be better now that he is in office.
He radiates hope to all.

He has helped with transparency into Governmet affairs and exposing corruption in Government and Big Business.

Your B/F is just pissed that his candidate lost. Socialism is the word that Rightwing Republicans throw out there to scare people. Look at Canada and France and even the UK. Their Healthcare systems are wonderful. People in the US just believe what the TV tells them. Look into it yourself. Watch Michael Moore's Sicko. And while you're at it watch Zeitguist the movie. And make your B/F watch it.

If he was REAL socialist/communist you all would be working for only government and your economy would be government-planned; you'd be getting free health care (not necessarily great one), free education; your second language would be Russian; multimedia would be censored, etc etc. If he is true comunist he'll tend to be a dictator and if he's a dictator, he'll be on "throne" even when you have grandchildren. lol Our president has been in an office for 18 years (since i was 13). No worries, Obama can't afford implementing his communistic ideas in real life. It'd be too much for the US.

His given us all hope that we will get through this. It took 8 years for us to get into the mess we are currently in and our previous President got us here. It's only been 6 months since the man took office. I think that people should be patient.Baby steps he has to take baby steps to get us out of this mess. Your boyfriend is just mad becasue who he wanted to win lost and he's mad at u because u believed. Don't doublt your choice....u made the right one.

***thinking..... thinking..... thinking.....

OH! He bought a really cute dog for the White House!! ***

Look, A lot of people voted for Obama simply because he said he wants "change"... but he never really outlined WHAT change he wants....
Nothing Major will come of this Administration. All that changed is the letter after the Party in Power from R to D....

And I am not a liberal, but if you read the answers of those who are NONE of them have an answer for ya... He's a POLITICIAN, they all suck....
