If a majority of Obama supporters really viewed him as a messianic figure these poll numbers wouldn't be reflecting that the public is losing trust in him.
    I completely agree. You can find the same level of blind devotion towards political figures on any side of the political spectrum. It just happens that it's only wrong when the "other side" is doing it.

    Those people that blindly devote probably don't know anything about American politics or government other then Obama being President. Which is probably, sadly, a huge number of the populace on all sides of the political spectrum.

    The stimulus will fail. That's a given, and that's his point. Printing money as a band-aid hasn't worked in world history, so why would it work now? We didn't have any money to begin with, so printing up a quick trillion will fix the problem?

    If Obama fails to get another stimulus, fails to socialize healthcare, fails to pass a cap and tax bill, etc, we might one day find our way out of this mess.

    He's done far too much damage already.

    Re: Poll: Public losing trust in President Obama

    FY2008 the Federal government spent $682.1B on Medicare/ Medicad
    $2273 for every man, woman and child in the US
    Thats over $9000 for a family of 4, per year.

    Do you suppose if the liberals let us keep that money, we could take care of our own health care?

    Wishing failure upon HARMFUL policy initiatives is not the same as wishing harm upon America - quite the opposite actually.

    I didn't say it doesn't happen. I said the conservatives exaggerate it past reality. I can find those same type of ignorance in support of McCain, Palin, Bush, Limbaugh, Coulter, and Hannity.

    Should I start saying that those on the right refer to these individuals as Prophets and Gods?

    Do you honestly believe that every family in American equally paid $9k per year or that every individual paid $2k?

    Is it not truly sad that third-grade reason is such an impossibly unrealistic solution today?

    The fact that your point is so obvious, yet will never happen, tells you just how steep a cliff we face.

    I agree, but he did not mention policy.

    DamnYankee-I hope BO fails miserably, along with all leftists for that matter.
