Obama: The most polarizing first-year president in history

The New Obama message is getting old. No I'm not talking about the interesting pictures of the President getting old, as found on the website, Art of Obama.com that are based on the photoshop pictures that was recently featured on CNN (via BoingBoing, via IssTumBul): “Presidential aging photos – Boing Boing. “The president ages twice as fast while in office, according to a theory advanced by Dr. Michael Roizen, a chief wellness officer at the Cleveland Clinic.”  More Art of Obama.com

No I'm talking about the real deal. The newest "weak proposals" from President Barack Obama and the White House to the economic crisis in America. Now he is proposing the following:

-- nearly doubling the child and dependent care tax credit for families making under $85,000 a year;
-- limiting a student's federal loan payments to 10 percent of income above basic living allowance;
-- creating a new system of automatic workplace retirement savings accounts;
-- expanding tax credits to match retirement savings; and
-- expanding elder care help for the "sandwich generation" of baby boomers caring for parents and children.

Hmm... these proposals are interesting but I must ask, why is he not understanding that it's about jobs and foreclosures? It's about the money he gave to the banks, and they refuse to loan are money back. It's about the bailout that saved Wall Street firms from failure. It's about poor leadership in the White House. It's about, you got elected NOW LEAD!

Americans are pissed because there has been no real reform on Wall Street, and there is no vision coming out of the President. Why not be a great first term President, Mr. Obama?

The fact of the matter is, If Barack Obama allowed some of those Wall Street bastards to fail, Maybe, just maybe, failure might provided an opportunity for real Wall Street reform. Now Barack Obama is seen by Independent's like me, as no more than a George W. Bush clone.

I guess I understand why so many independents like myself believe Barack Obama is the most polarizing First Year President's in History.

The Gallup Poll people delivered an interesting report today: President Obama was the most polarizing first-year president in history. 

Well, so much for all this talk about Barack Obama being the great consensus builder and the Lincoln bible and channeling Abraham lincoln stuff, that Barack obama played to the max and took us for a ride.Obama steps of train.jpg

The fact of the matter is, Barack Obama has been playing America and playing black folks like a fiddle. In the name of Abraham Lincoln
