Your Current Thoughts On Obama/Administration?

It's been little over 6 months since he's been in office, so some of you probably have realized that he's not actually going to do the things he said he was going to when he was running for president.

Simply put, I'm starting to get the feeling he's just the next president. I mean, when he walked into the White House he was like some juggernaut, but now I see him as just a new guy doing the same old things.

The recent outlashes at Fox News (especially Beck) were pretty funny. It was a bold move, but honestly, in terms of one of the writers, they needed a "reality check". Doubt it will change anything, but at least it's good to see them taking a proactive approach to criticism, and not using basic formed generalities filled with political correctness. If there's anything I dislike about politics, it's political correctness. People need to learn to not be so serious, but w/e, America did it to themselves by not telling these fools to STFU when they got mad.

Final verdict: While I still like him, he isn't the so called "Gift from God" people made him out to be (not like I thought he was).

Well in the 6 months he has been in office, so far, I agree with you, for the most part. Not with Fox news though... They would do anything to bring a democratic president down.

He still has 3 and a half years, so I will wait until then to make my final judgement.

I was NOT expecting Obama to be this stellar once-in a-generation leader. I knew that going into the November election and I voted for him primarily because some of his stances resembled Hillary's and to me, he was the next best thing. Quite frankly, I'm surprised he's done as well as he has with the recession. I voted for Obama because I knew he would make some sort of effort to steer away from pointless politics and make a push to get things done. So far, he's doing ok. A lot of people are crying about losing the Olympic bid, but those people need to get over it and grow up. That should be the last thing on anyone's mind right now. Seriously.

Least he isnt has bad as Hover.

I think he is helping redefine what a president is image wise, but as for actaully getting things done? nope. He's not doing much. But its only been 6 months. And seriously why do people think he is going to change everything? He has to deal with a lot of bull that other prez. handed him.

Fox News goes against the democrats just as bad as all the other news corporations go against the Republicans. Unbiased journalism is a myth.

Yup. Exactly. That is why I don't watch the news...

I really think that news corporations should really just stop attacking certain groups of people because they aren't in the same party... And once one is the president, they need to give it up... Bashing does not help anything...

Can't help but agree with Beefy here. He may have had good intentions going into politics, but he will become corrupt eventually, if not already.

I think he's doing rather well. I'm glad i voted for him last November. I would like him to be more strict on the banking sector so that they wouldnt be getting those massive bonuses anymore.. seriously who the **** needs 700,000 as a bonus?
