    Obama's first year is about over! How you think he's doing, or not doing?

    Well, I'm just going to be honest, I'm not loving it. I won't get into details, because I do enjoy the fact that we FINALLY have a black president, but it's more to it than that. He's really not what I want behind the skin tone, and I don't think saying that is too bad.

    I've just been hearing so much crap about him, and I'm willing to bet a lot of it is based on the fact that he is black. I just want to make it clear that I'm not afraid of this change as some people seem to be... even people who voted for him. It's just some of the things he plans to do that I don't agree with.

    doing what?

    has your community gotten better or worse?

    job losses,

    hunger,
    home losses,

    .0004% of the "additional" 700 + billion he gave to corporate criminals as a reward for mismanagement,

    would have solved all of that overnight

    Period!

    health care,
    foreign policy,
    preventation of privitization of public services,
    or regulations on corporate graft?

    I'm going to assume that wasn't a rhetorical question and may be incorrect doing so.

    Maybe I cannot point out specific articles to you, but I know what he's said he plans to do, and what he has done, and most of it, I do not agree with.

    As far as his health care plan goes, it is based on socialism, and that isn't what I believe in.

    Foreign policy? He just basically said to send more people in, which is clearly history repeating itself.

    Prevention of privatization of public services is again socialist, and I am a anarcho-capitalist, so I don't believe in government interference on that level anyway. I don't think I should really comment either way.

    And it's not that I think he's some superman, so I don't think it would have solved overnight, but the direction he's headed in, I don't think it's going to get any better either.
