    I don't want Obama to fail as president of the United States. To succeed, he will have to chart a middle path - one that sees the long term economic security of the US (and by extension the world) will necessitate both a combination of free market economics with some regulation that will protect consumers and workers. If he goes overboard on the socialism side, he WILL fail - not because I want him to, but because that is NOT the way the American economy will work best.

    Re: Record 31.8 million on food stamps

    The article quoted at the beginning of this thread noted that Ohio had the largest increase in food stamp recipients. As anecdotal evidence of how harsh the job environment has grown in Ohio, the following are excerpts from a recent news story:

    Evidence of the slumping economy is stacking up at an Ohio school which has nearly 700 applications for one open janitorial job.

    Officials at Perry Local Schools near Canton in northeast Ohio say they've extended the deadline until Monday to accommodate the overwhelming response to the week-old posting...

    Superintendent John Richard says many applicants are laid-off workers with heart-wrenching stories about the tough economic times.

    Re: Record 31.8 million on food stamps

    This is such a sad time in our country because more and more folks are losing jobs, having to go to food banks and the gov. for assistance and we have small tent cities popping up all over this country. This is the greatest country in the World and none of this should be happening cause we can do better

    Also this is a happy time for this country because we have the first Black POTUS and this is history in the making but it is too bad that he has had to walk into one of the worse mess that our country has ever face. I have faith in Obama and no doubt he will make changes that will get us all out of this mess. It will be a long road but it will be done. I give it a year before we start to see any major improvements. Til then we -as a whole-need to stay strong and know that this country and the peoples in it WILL RISE ABOVE!

    All over the country?

    Tent... "cities".

    We have had permanent, destructive ghettos for decades... call them permanent tent cities created by well meaning but misguided social engineers.

    It doesn't bother you leftist folks. In fact, you call this an important constituent group that should be pandered to. Ask Cosby.

    Jesse Jackson threatens to cut the nuts out of Presidential candidates for suggesting personal responsibility for the babies the men bring into the world and the women giving birth to them.

    What is sad is the government didn't help solve the problem, they helped create one.

    In Ohio they have punished industries and unions overplayed their hand.

    Nationally the socialist gave us the catalyst for the current meltdown (Fannie and Freddie). Social engineering fails again... and how!

    Til then we -as a whole-need to stay strong and know that this country and the peoples in it WILL RISE ABOVE!
    Problem is President Teleprompter and his clan are making us weaker, businesses fearful, punishing wealth creation and over-burdening us with taxes.

    We will rise above, but not because of Obama... he has Changed.

    United behind Marx, he is now telling us "No You Cannot".

    Only government can fix this... "Cowards".

    Also this is a happy time for this country because we have the first Black POTUS
    I would happily trade this President, black... green or orange for one that is qualified.

    Every time.

    Color or gender do not matter... at all.

    Policies and character matter. And what is Obama?

    An Alinsky trained community agitator who does not believe in the American people or the documents that guide America.

    His actions in the last six weeks have proven as much.

    yeah, contrast the first 6 weeks of Obama with the first 6 weeks of GWB....
    we all thought George would do a good job, but long run, he faileld miserably on the economic front.

    Zimmer, your post makes me sad and I will not comment on it because it is just a bash Obama posts and you are out of touch with what is happening in this country. Sorry.

    Apparently they are popping up everywhere as a proof that the American welfare system is not sufficient. Its tragic.. I saw a picture montage of a tent camp in California, terrible stuff.
