    So much for all of those who WERE saying Trudeau is giving Obama a pass.

    There are just too many high roller dollars in politics.

    I said it during the election and I’ve said it ever since, expectations for him were way too high. He’s no liberal - he always said he was for increasing presence in Afghanistan, he was always lukewarm on gay rights. I’d rather he pull us out and get rid of don’t-ask-don’t-tell, but surprised? Nah.

    Do you now think you should have voted for McCain-Palin? Really? Think it through. This is too important to be a trick question.

    Still 100% (or more!) happy we do not have Mcp!

    Maybe we DO need Palin in 2012. At least our expectations wouldn’t be let down.

    Obama’s perverse supporters are used to ‘taking it’ and coming back for more.

    I have imagined that after eight years of Obama, we would have to pay by having eight years of Palin. The mind boggles.

    Look, Obama is not Jesus Christ, just a man doing the best he can, and that seems to me pretty good so far. I’ll wait another year or two before judging.

    Did the Health bill get passed last night? Now if it did, how long have people been trying to get that done? And if he achieved it, that’s pretty good. Except, of course, the exclusion of abortions (sigh).

    it passed the first vote. There are two more, and undoubtedly a lot more “fixing” before it gets done. Still an excellent chance it’ll fail, and since it doesn’t establish a national health care system, I don’t care anymore whether it passes or not… it’ll just be more of what we’ve got now, with different colours of money, whatever they say.

    RinaFarina- as a former fetus, I am opposed to abortion. Just think where you would be if your mother practiced it!

    just heard one health care bill ditched and a whole new one voted on….some kind of ligislative legal switch for the “aamended” bill…..

    still the price for isnurance of any kind will go up….. wish “we” have the Congressional Insurance…no donut hole and ALOT cheaper…

    and we keep voting for these people.

    Obama has been in office not quite a year yet and I am terribly disappointed that he has not:

    1) Ended the two wars we are in 2) Fixed health care 3) Gotten unemployment below 3% 4) Fixed global climate change 5) Ended the violence throughout Africa 6) Found a cure for cancer 7) Found a cure for the common cold 8) etc.

    Come on people. It took eight years of W to create a lot of the mess President Obama is dealing with. Other problems have been around for decades. Do people think he has some kind of magic wand he can wave and make these problems go away overnight? It takes time and persistence to say nothing of the cooperation of congress to get all this done.

    I appreciate the one commenter that said they will wait a couple more years before passing judgement. That is far more realistic than saying he is a failure after such a short time in office.

    Hey, Big Green - several folks have already commented on JAD and have said much as you did yesterday.

    The only thing that the Obama administration has done is, very unfortunately, repopularize use of the “N” word. I hear people using it to describe him and his supporters that I had never heard use it before. Ultimately, I think, his time in office will widen the racial gap in America rather than tighten it. For African Americans–in my opinion only–he is an Oreo, albeit a rather pale one, and to many, if not most whites, he is a socialist who wants to rob working people and give to the non-producers. I very much fear what will happen at the next presidental election–will we end up with a nut case such as Palin, Beck, Dobbs, et. al.? Oh, well…as the old Chinese curse says: “May you live in interesting times.”
