    Obama hasn't been trying hard enough on the issues most important to Americans, unemployment and the economy. Instead of spending the country to death he should be working on ways to stop the tidal wave of money that's leaving the country. The trade deficit from "free trade" and the interest on the national debt paid tax free to foreign investors is killing the job market and the economy. Illegals send billions to their countries of origin, and billions more leave the country and go to foreign drug cartels. And Obama puts all his efforts into ramming the most expensive legislation in history down America's throat, whether most people want it or not.

    He has failed like a fox.

    Actually he has almost accomplished the complete destruction of the nation, for the sake of accomplishing his political agenda and forcing it on others who have been rendered helpless and at his mercy.

    Just like that Lincoln character did. Is it any wonder Obama compares himself to Lincoln?

    His tactics are the same.

    What is absolutely baffling to me is yes he passed things, but what has changed. Wallstreet is flailing daily, the economy is suffering, consumer confidence has plummeted, the stimulus money is gone and we still have the highest unemployment in over 20 years! We have the highest foreclosure rates in 30 years, your right, he is an abject failure!

    You are one-half right. He has accomplished little. He is not trying hard...especially on the Gulf oil spill problem.

    President Bush left him with allot to take care of. He really does not have the say so the House of Representatives do. They pass the bill not him.

    I think the health care reform act is a pretty big accomplishment if you ask me.
