Obama's First 100 Days (This should be a sticky)

Post  Mad_Jasper on Wed Nov 05, 2008 4:37 pm

At some point of the first 100 days, Obama will address the nation:

Because the failed Bush economic polices of the last 8 years are far worse than anyone ever imagined, we will not be able to implement many of the important and necessary policies promised in our campaign. It is important for all Americans to come together and ensure those that are not living the American dream have the same opportunity we have. It is important for all American's to work together and ensure the uninsured have access to health care. Together, we can make this the America our fathers envisioned.

To accomplish this vision, we must lower our tax cut threshold to $50,000 a year for single adults, $100,000 for families.

It is our patriotic duty to stand up and help those that are less fortunate.


Of course, he won't tell us that the Bush tax cuts are about to expire effectively raising everyone's taxes... or that you only get a tax cut when you actually pay taxes. 70-80% of Americans under that threshold does not pay income taxes, thus, they will receive a tax credit... aka redistribution of wealth.

Obama's first test as president won't be the "world", it will be his own economic pipe dream. Biden's comments come to mind.

"And he's going to need help . . . to stand with him. Because it's not going to be apparent initially; it's not going to be apparent that we're right."

You're absolutely right. Bush's tax cuts (which McCain vowed to keep on) will expire in 2010 and we'll all be paying more taxes. And that's BEFORE his own tax hikes. I need that sign that says "Don't blame me, I voted for McCain". NOW.

I have to admit I was so heartbroken and disgusted by the vote last night that I couldn't bear to watch his acceptance speech. So I looked up the transcript later and had to chuckle at the fact that while already making apologies for future incompetence, he also started his campaign for the next election:

The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep. We may not get there in one year or even one term, but America – I have never been more hopeful than I am tonight that we will get there. I promise you – we as a people will get there.

There will be setbacks and false starts. There are many who won’t agree with every decision or policy I make as President, and we know that government can’t solve every problem.

It's amazing how he has this ability to tell people bad news right to their faces and they don't even notice. What infuriates me the most is how they've managed to brainwash the masses into believing that our country has been demolished and has to be rebuilt "brick by brick." Our country may go through tough times, but we don't need to be declaring to the world that we're in ruins. It's not true and it's ticking me off that people are buying into it just because he says it over and over again. Kind of like "the last 8 years of failed Bush policies." If it were true, he would've only been given 4 years. Yet even the McCain supporters are starting to repeat this phrase, and blame the loss on Bush.

The only way I could get myself to sleep last night was by reminding myself that Obama has never actually accomplished any of his supposed goals other than winning the next election, so there probably won't be that many significant changes after all. Plus, in 4 years Obama won't be "making history" any more. He'll have to run on his own record. We'd better be ready with a better pool of Republican candidates to choose from in 2012.

It's that Congress that has to be watched now. They're already going after Lieberman. Talk about sore winners. We have 2 years to find the best and brightest candidates to run for Congress, and by then I'm sure the country will be ready to vote for them.

Exactly! The Kool-aid will wear off eventually and when they start seeing all those promises he made take a back seat, hopefully they will realize their mistake in putting him there in the first place. I was livid and depressed but now I have come to grips with it since we're basically stuck with this socialist for the next 4 years. I just hope he doesn't screw it up TOO much for the next person - man, woman, black or white.

It's unbelievable that he 's already telling everyone he won't deliver. Then why the HECK did you promise soooooooooo much????

He's inheriting an ecomonic nightmare with this mortage crisis - a credit card crises, a student loan default crisis, a car loan crisis, a broken nail crisis all loom on the horizon. This will all continue to exacerbate for at least a year. The economy is going to contract.

Now if he proposes and enacts ANY tax increase during this time, we'll going into a depression, so he won't be able to fufill that promise for starters. The Dow has lost twelve percent of its value since he won, in two days. That is psychological, but he's still going to have to announce that he's backing off and "studying" his tax proposal plan.

But don't worry, he'll still be able to make an ass out of himself in foreign policy - Putin is already making the move - that alone should keep the messiah preoccupied.

So when Dow drops during elections, that's just the market crash, but when it happens after Obama becomes president-elect (and still under Bush presidency), then it's psychological? Interesting.

But don't worry, he'll still be able to make an ass out of himself in foreign policy - Putin is already making the move - that alone should keep the messiah preoccupied.

FYI, Putin is not the president of Russia anymore, so there will be no need for anyone making an ass out of themselves... Medvedev (the real Russian president) has been talking about Russian rocket shield (or as you describe it - making a move) for several months now and only Fox News makes it a breaking news just day after elections (by showing rocket missiles being launched. Archived video, but hey - scare tactics work even after elections).

So, would this post be considered a personal attack, act of trolling or you just don't like when someone answers you back on this forum?

LOL.

Might as well thrown up a link to the new Obama website:

http://change.gov/

"change. gov" . . . what an oxymoron. Look quickly, else the change site will change again.

Just two points:

1.yes, the Dow is always influenced by CW.
2. Putin wants to be president again.

But who the hell cares? Hope and change.
