Is it just me or has Obama done the opposite of what he said he would.

I dont care for Mitt Romney but come on Obama has destroyed America and its economy ,or is it just me?

The economy was headed downhill way before Obama got elected. He did inherit two wars and a banking crisis after all. You don't just flip a switch and then all of a sudden things go bad. Nobody mentions the previous 8 years of tax cuts for the wealthy, and the trillions spent on fighting the two wars at the same time. To be honest he has actually done a fairly good job of keeping the country from being in worse shape than it could be. If weren't for the "obstructionist' republican House Of Representatives then things might have actually improved.
According to economists the United States reached it's peak purchasing power (wages versus cost of goods and services) in 1973 and it had been downhill ever since. Obama was probably in the 5th grade at the time so how are you going to blame everything since then on him. Get over it. The rich are trying to keep the poor in economic slavery and they are using the republican party to do their dirty work for them.

An excellent Answer. Too bad so many people are totally ignorant of what's really going on with the Republican plan to destroy America, just to make a few more dollars for the billionaires to send to Switzerland and the Cayman Islands.

The income tax was started in 1918 to pay for the First World War. Blaming Obama for the income tax is an indication of how little you know about the world. Fortunately, you're obviously too young to vote.

He's the President! He inherited a mess from the Republicans and it is going to take more than one term to fix it. He should be respected no matter how anyone feels about him.

He didn't ram "The Patriot Act' down our throats . (The worst destruction of personal privacy and constitutional rights since the first World War). Why are Bush and all of his cronies hiding out? Could it be that if they leave the U.S. then they could be arrested, and tried for war crimes by the Hague? Just a thought.

Interesting thought. The Bush administration was the most corrupt since Reagan (almost a quarter of his Cabinet officers, including his Attorney General, went to jail). Republicans should be deeply ashamed of what they've done, which President Obama is trying to fix, instead, with the gall of the blatant criminals they are, they are trying to blame him. Unfortunately, there are a lot of stupid people who believe them.

It's just you. Obama actually rescued the economy from the death spiral that Bush put it in.

For those who have not yet taken 8th grade civics (which seems to be most of the above), in our system of government CONGRESS makes the laws, the President only proposes them. During his first 2 years, with a Democratic Congress passing the laws that were needed, Obama reversed the job loss, adding several million jobs, saved two major American industries (General Motors and Chrysler), which saved over 100,000 jobs, and basically stopped the Bush recession. Once the Tea Party took over the House, none of Obama's job - creating bills (and there have been at least 3 major ones) have seen the light of day. If Obama is to be blamed for not correcting the problem, then the Republicans and Bush bear ALL of the blame for creating it in the first place. Obama did not meet all of his goals because the Republicans in Congress are willing to destroy America to make him look bad, and that's exactly what they have been doing!!

None of the big programs he initiated helped the common man--such as propping up the banks to help people keep their houses and the buy back on cars which destroyed lots of older cars that were fine and kept real clunkers on the road.
