What should Barack Obama be able to fix when he becomes president?

How quickly should he be able to fix it?

Do you think he is the best president for this job or would someone else be better at it?

    Looking for the change you were promised? Don't hold your breath.

    One reason why it is so easy to predict a business-as-usual Obama Presidency is the people that Obama has surrounded himself with. Former New York Federal Reserve chairman Timothy Geithner* for Secretary of the Treasury; former Secretary of the Treasury Lawrence Summers* for National Economic Council director; Bush's Defense Secretary Robert Gates* will keep his job; Illinois Representative Rahm Emanuel for Obama's Chief of Staff; Hillary Clinton for Secretary of State; Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano* for Secretary of Homeland Security; former South Dakota Senator Tom Daschle* to head the Health and Human Services Department; former Assistant Attorney General Eric Holder to be Attorney General; New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson* as Secretary of Commerce; Susan Rice* for U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations; Paul Volcker* for the Economic Recovery Advisory Board; James Steinberg* as Deputy Secretary of State; Mona Sutphen* for Deputy White House Chief of Staff, and Louis Caldera* for Director of the White House Military Office.

    Does anyone see "change" with the above names? Every one of them is a longtime political insider. And at least eleven of them (those with an asterisk [*] behind their names, above) are members of the globalist Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). In fact, six out of the eleven cabinet-level positions in the Obama administration are CFR members.

    The CFR has dominated both Democrat and Republican Presidential administrations for decades. Presidents such as Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton have all been members of the CFR. Vice Presidents such as Hubert Humphrey, Nelson Rockefeller, Walter Mondale, and Dick Cheney have been CFR members. And over the last several decades, practically every secretary of defense, secretary of the treasury, and most CIA directors have been CFR members. And let's not forget that this year's Republican Presidential nominee, John McCain, is a CFR member.

    Do you now see why--no matter who is elected President of the United States--nothing changes? Republican or Democrat, it does not matter: the CFR and their collaborators remain in power.

    There will be no real change in Washington, D.C., until the CFR and their elitist cronies are thoroughly and universally removed from power. And the only way this will happen is if we elect an Independent President of the United States (someone who truly understands the New World Order concept, and is dedicated to defeating it), because the two major parties will never allow someone opposed to the CFR to become their nominee. The only Republican candidate for President in 2008 who demonstrated those credentials was Dr. Ron Paul. And to a lesser degree, the only Democrat who even seemed to vaguely understand this was Dennis Kucinich. Notice that both men were thoroughly repudiated by their respective parties' leadership and all but totally ignored by the national news media. (The CFR and their surrogates also control the national news media. What a coincidence!)

    There will be no change to the overall direction of the country. There will be little change to the warfare state. No change to NATO, except to expand it. Very little change, if any, to foreign policy. No change to America's open sieves, otherwise called national borders. And there will be absolutely no change to the burgeoning New World Order that began in earnest under both Bushes and Bill Clinton. The NAFTA superhighway will have the support of the Obama administration. The North American Community will proceed unimpeded by the Obama White House. In all likelihood, the Amero (a common currency with Canada and Mexico) will materialize during Obama's first term. But this would all have happened had John McCain been elected. No change here.

    National security is the number one priority and will take constant monitoring. It can't be done with one fell swoop of a pen.

    There may not be much to save or solve if atom bombs or chemicals are let loose in the world.

    If interested one should read this.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sherman_Antitrust_Act

    This law, enacted in 1890, with all it's addendums, still is somewhat ambiguous and left to courts and judges to determine "reasonableness" in their decisions.

    If our government had had the will to use it and prevented any corporation or bank to become "too big to fail", we very likely would not be experiencing the crises of the moment in our economy.

    With all the problems to solve, this should never again be allowed to happen.

    It was used in a few instances but since WW II, was ignored when corporations and banks "bought up" their competition and became too big.

    I won't go into all the details but if more risk were spread out among more companies and banks, the impact of failure would not have been so devastating to the economy.

    This he could prevent by re-visiting that law and make changes if necessary.

    This should never happen again, but it could.

    I spent my life in an industry with as many as 500 manufacturers at one time. Today there are 4. That's "four", one which is in Canada.

    If they should fail, we'll be buying more goods from foreign manufacturers. That's not too likely, but.............?

    We can only hope he is the right one. I'm not yet convinced by words.

    Well, according to his campaign promises, he's going to fix the economy, the military, and the political system of this country.

    last i checked he has at least 4 years to fix these things, maybe as many as 8.

    i voted McCain, but Obama is the man that the majority of other people voted for so it's useless to think about something that didn't happen. i am an american and will follow Obama as long as he puts the country first.

    Obama may accomplish a few things while in office mostly by attempting to ram socialist idealistic programs down our throats.

    Hes already begun kow towing and kissing the greenies by promising green government jobs and promising to expand the over all size of government. the problem is the governement cant create "jobs" the governement takes our money and creates jobs. The government cannot create goods and does not really provide services. They only dictate to the private sector. Its a huge mistake for us to fall into the trap of believing the governmnet is going to solve our problems. It doesnt work will never work and will only result ina larger more intrusive government.
