100 Days

As reporters and pundits the world over evaluate President Obama's first 100 days in office, I notice a telling trend. People either think he has been the most successful president in modern time OR they think he has been a miserable failure. There really isn't any in-between.

Looking at just a few of his "accomplishments" pretty much sums up the reasons why there is no fence sitting with this particular administration.
  • Under the guise of "economic stimulus" he was able to pass a $787 billion gift for his liberal special interest base. And he did it so quickly that no member of Congress was able to read it before they voted.
  • After campaigning on a pledge to end earmarks, he signed an appropriations bill loaded with 8,000 earmarks - and paid no political penalty.
  • President Obama has kept congressional Democrats marching with him in lockstep. House Democrats tow the party line an amazing 94 percent of the time and Senate Democrats vote Democratic 91 percent of the time.
  • President Obama has transformed the Federal Reserve and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) into giant engines of unsupervised spending. Together, they've spent the equivalent of the entire federal budget for 2007, without having to disclose where the money went.
  • Just two weeks ago, the President presided over an unprecedented bureaucratic power grab when his Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ruled that greenhouse gases pose a threat to public health. This seemingly innocuous decision opens the door to wholesale regulation of American life by government. The threat is so great that politicians and activists are using the specter of an out-of-control EPA to force Congress to pass a $1 trillion to $2 trillion energy tax in the form of cap-and-trade legislation.
  • In an attempt to overcome anti-Americanism abroad by agreeing with it, President Obama has gone on a global apology tour, labeling America as "arrogant, dismissive and derisive" in front of foreign audiences.
  • President Obama has unleashed r open to prosecuting Bush Administration officials over the interrogation of terrorists who plotted to kill Americans.

Now that's some change I just can't believe in.

I just discovered this site and I am soo relieved to find a group of mothers willing to speak out. After all, who has more influence in this country than the mothers molding our next generation? Pres. Obama has strayed so far from our brilliant and inspired founding fathers that I fear our children may never know the "Real America". We must teach our children about freedom, and hard work, and not about entitlement. Thanks for keeping us all informed.

Not only all that, but he authorized the federal funding of overseas abortions.

What a winning 100 days!

I think you should check the facts and how about praying for this administration instead of being so negative. You all seem to forget that Bush and Cheney may have something to do with the spiral downward of the economy, they did nothing to help healthcare, education, and started this war. We need to pray for this administration and search our hearts to bring out the goodness.

I love it how the bad economy is still being blamed on Bush but the Democratic Congress gets a free pass.

This was blogged in October of last year here: http://joshswifeplus4.blogspot.com/2008/10/more-politics.html

George Bush has been in office for 7 1/2 years.

The first six the economy was fine.

A little over one year ago:

1) Consumer confidence stood at a 2 1/2 year high;

2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon;

3) the unemployment rate was 4.5%.

4) the DOW JONES hit a record high--14,000 +

5) American's were buying new cars, taking cruises, vacations overseas, living large!...

But American's wanted 'CHANGE'! So, in 2006 they voted in a Democratic Congress and yes--we got 'CHANGE' all right.


In the PAST YEAR:

1) Consumer confidence has plummeted ;

2) Gasoline hit over $4 a gallon;

3) Unemployment is up to 5.5% (a 10% increase);

4) Americans have seen their home equity drop by $12 TRILLION DOLLARS and prices still dropping;

5) 1% of American homes are in foreclosure.

6) as I write, THE DOW is probing another low~~ $2.5 TRILLION DOLLARS HAS EVAPORATED FROM THEIR STOCKS, BONDS & MUTUAL FUNDS INVESTMENT PORTFOLIOS!


YES, IN 2006 AMERICA VOTED FOR CHANGE...AND WE SURE GOT IT! ....


REMEMBER THE PRESIDENT HAS NO CONTROL OVER ANY OF THESE ISSUES, ONLY CONGRESS.


AND WHAT HAS CONGRESS DONE IN THE LAST TWO YEARS, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.


NOW THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT CLAIMS HE IS GOING TO REALLY GIVE US CHANGE ALONG WITH A DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS!!!!


JUST HOW MUCH MORE 'CHANGE' DO YOU THINK YOU CAN STAND?
