    Re: Obama: Economic crisis 'not as bad as we think'

    I just don't understand what good would come from Obama saying "we're soooooooooooo ****ed. We're all responsible, but the Gov't and the Stock Marketeers should be the ones who are getting beaten senseless. It's not the people's fault that they believe everything they hear and just "love" trusting the markets with their money."

    Oh, he's changing the country alright. In a few years, we're all going to be sitting on a street corner "hoping for change." Thanks a lot, Obama.

    Unfortunately, this mess is taking much of the rest of the world down with the US. Our own president made economic promises that were unrealistic in the BEST of times - and now, the economy here is even worse than in the US.

    No. I didn't vote for Obama. No way can I look like a fool.

    It's one thing to use teleprompters for major speeches, quite another to have to rely on them for basic day-to-day speaking.

    What is it, he can't keep track of his own ideas, or he can't keep track of what his masters tell him his ideas are supposed to be?

    You people made fun of Rove controlling Bush...who the hell is feeding the Obama-puppet his lines?

    If he can't deliver speeches without a teleprompter, he's not articulate.

    I'm sorry. Could you explain to me how "we're all" responsible? I, for one, would laugh when I heard those advertisements "0-down adjustable rate mortgage! No credit? NO PROBLEM! No job? NO PROBLEM! No assets? NO PROBLEM!" If you couldn't tell those mortgages were a scam, there's something seriously wrong with you. I didn't set the interest rate on treasury bonds to 1%. I didn't go out selling ****ty mortgages or buying millions of them on leverage.

    Nothing like that of course. However, interesting that he was talking down the economy as a candidate and while the economy is WORSE now, he is telling us it isn't so bad. While I am doing fine, I have a lot of friends who are not doing well on both sides of the Pacific. Tell THEM the economy isn't so bad.

    The economy will recover. All he needs to do is step back and leave it alone! In the meantime, he can work on CUTTING spending and then when we're in better shape he can start CUTTING taxes. But why should we do that? DEBT IS WEALTH!

    I'm sorry. I can't even see the man's name anymore without being reminded of how much he is lacking in fundamental leadership skills. It's disgraceful.
