People have been discussing the Obama presidency in the "How do you feel about a Black President?" thread. I decided to create one that is specific to the 44th president of the United States. For the neutrality of the thread I am not going to discuss my views in this post (but I probably will later on )

*EDIT* now sense some time has gone by I think I'll revive this thread. What do you think of Obama's job performance so far? Good president or complete failure? Making progress or broken campaign promisees? Post your opinions.

Well, good topic except for the fact that Obama has not even been in office for a year.

Anyways, so far, the biggest thing he has done/still doing is the stimulus package for the economy. It seems promising but some republicans are not actually for it. But, before anything else...

I am rather confused about your topic; what do you exactly mean by something "specific?" In a way, that is actually the same as "How do you feel about a black president?" but like what he has done so far or like compare and contrast him to other presidents? Or do you mean like anything about him such as family religion, accomplishments, etc?
Yeah, I am implying it is too vague to start something worth discussing.

I don't give a flying hoot if he's green, white, yellow, or black. I'm not a republican, or a democrat mainly because i despise all politics but I will say this. This stimulus package is a BAD idea, and the second package on it's way is only going to make it even worse. They're putting a good amount of money into worthless crap that doesn't need "stimulating" we're completely screwed.

Anyone who thinks the stimulus bill is going to help, frankly you're misguided.

This isn't to show hatred towards Obama, he's a great speaker and everything, but come on guys. Look how much he's wasting, and look how much he's already spent hardly being a month into office. For crying out loud.

I think he made this thread so that we could focus more on his actions rather than his appearance. The other thread was more about how his being elected had an impact on racial relations and perceptions in the U.S, while this thread is more about discussing whether we agree with the decisions he's made so far and the possible consequences of those decisions.

What I am trying to do is open up discussion for Obama's policies, the things he has done already and the things he plans to do. To discuss what we think about Obama and his political ideologies. Basically criticizing and agreeing with him on what he does/believes/says.

the president haven't spent much time in white house to evaluate his presidency,i rather give him more time before deciding whether he's a god or a bad president!!

I doubt he will be any worse than Bush, though Obama is more popular here in Canada then he is in the country he is running, a lot of us breathed a sigh of relief when he was elected. As for how he will do, hard to say at the moment, I believe you can judge after the first 90 or 100 days of his presidency. He is promising a lot though , health care reform, cure for cancer, cutting the addiction your country has to oil, and dealing with the countries that hate yours with a passion. So maybe this thread is a bit premature.

Off shore oil drilling near california imo. Japan, China, and a ton of other countries are there and have been there for 20 some odd years, and we're just hanging out. That would solve a lot of problems if the USA wasn't so hard headed. Also, lets drill in anwar! Also, i agree, premature thread.

True, it is early, which is exactly the problem.

Look at what he's doing already.

It could get better, but the likely hood of that happening is slim.

the recession would go away on its own frankly, lowering taxes would move it along faster, but this stimulus bill does nothing to help end the recession. Do you honestly just believe everything your told without question ? Do you even think anymore ? That's fucking sad man

I completely agree with you it would be nice if we could drill...

And to everyone, I realize that this thread is premature because Obama has only been in office a little over one month, but what I wanted to spark were debates regarding the stimulus bill Obama is pushing, his agendas he wants (like socialized healthcare and the war in Iraq) and some of the controversies looming over the administration (how many of those appointed have tax fraud, how some say his birth certificate is not authentic, etc...). Basically discussing Obama and his current presidency and goals he has set.

because republicans are butthurt and do not like the fact they lost the race, so they will pick apart obama to make themselves feel better.
