    Re: Rate the administration

    I voted for Obama... well, honestly I voted against McCain, and so far, the administration has been a mixed bag. The so-called stimulus is pathetic and the desire to keep failed companies afloat is only going to put off the inevitable as we're seeing with AIG. That part of the plan, I'm extremely unimpressed with.

    Otherwise, ending the ban on stem cell research, at least pretending to be transparent, those are positive signs at least, we'll have to see how they play out. Anything Obama can do to dismantle the virtual theocracy we had under Bush is fine by me.

    Like most administrations, it'll be a mixed bag, we'll have to wait to see how a lot of it works, nothing that they do is going to have instantaneous results, good or bad.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Yeah, it's the only way out if the door you want is Obama's Depression.

    The other doors are now closed.

    What's positive about dead babies?

    The other nations didn't stop using their murdered babies in their fetal tissue researches. What wondrous successes have come from the Frankenstein labs of Europe and Asia?

    Oh that's right. Nothing's come out....but dead babies.

    Any of you people figure out yet that the government isn't supposed to be conducting research or financing it?

    Let's see....Obie's been working on a solution to the banking problem since the day after he was elected. His grand answer is....he doesn't know. Nor do the "experts" he's hired to help him. Many of those "experts" seem to be having problems paying their taxes, too. Very impressive so far.

    He's taken the time to get a porkulus giganticus bill passed and signed, a bill that's not going to do anything to change the course of the economy.

    In that bill General Motors got a loan for huge sum...but weren't required to present anything resembling a business plan to the loan officer at the bank, which is what I always had to do when applying for a business loan. "Here, GM, have some money, come back when that runs out", was the instructions of the day.

    He's re-authorized the murder of babies for medical research. I guess those Parkinson twitchy people will be glad, after all, the rest of the world has been murdering babies on an industrial scale to help them, clearly the eggheads in the US will make all the difference, right, and they'll soon stop a-twitchin'.

    I was especially impressed with the unprecendented speed and agility he pursued a public spanking by Russia. Takes a real intellectual to do something as stupid as that. And what the heck, China's taken up mooning US naval vessels on the high seas, and Obama is getting ready to apologize for that, too.

    And you people can say you are PLEASED with the RESULTS so far?

    Name the successes and positive results. There ain't none.

    Since when does stem cell research result in a dead baby? Stem cell research is performed on cells, not babies.

    Again, babies are not being killed.

    That makes no sense, it has definitely not been impressive.

    Also, I don't think ANYONE has a good idea, I think we'd be lucky if we had one good idea.


    He's taken the time to get a porkulus giganticus bill passed and signed, a bill that's not going to do anything to change the course of the economy.
    You don't know that, as the bill has invested billions (I think, maybe millions) in research that could incite progress in energy and technology.

    Anyway the point is we cannot know what this bill will do, good or bad.

    He's re-authorized the murder of babies for medical research. I guess those Parkinson twitchy people will be glad, after all, the rest of the world has been murdering babies on an industrial scale to help them, clearly the eggheads in the US will make all the difference, right, and they'll soon stop a-twitchin'.
    He is allowing people to murder infant children? No. Wrong.

    This medical research you speak of is done before birth, therefore babies are not being killed.


    I was especially impressed with the unprecendented speed and agility he pursued a public spanking by Russia. Takes a real intellectual to do something as stupid as that. And what the heck, China's taken up mooning US naval vessels on the high seas, and Obama is getting ready to apologize for that, too.

    And you people can say you are PLEASED with the RESULTS so far?
    Yes I am. You cannot change that.

    You seem to have come into this thing with a predetermination to dislike everything President Obama sets forth. This is wrong. You have to actually look over the cliff before you jump. But you seem to sprint and leap without caring what's down below.


    Name the successes and positive results. There ain't none.
    Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act

    Plan for Closing Gitmo

    Plan for removing troops from Iraq and refocusing on Afghanistan (what we should have been doing since 2002.

    Obama's motion to lift the ban on stem cell research (its about freakin' time).

    [Just to name a few]

    Many of the positive results are on their way, they are being worked on. Patience is a virtue. Now I'm not saying we're gonna wait like 5 years for results to start, but it takes more time than 20 days my friend.

    What dead babies? There are no babies until they're born, before that they're fetuses, but you knew that, you're simply trying to cloud the issue with blatant hyper-emotionalism.

    Typical.

    Oh please. You mean to tell me that a 9 month old "fetus" isn't a baby until it comes out for air? Give me a break.
