        Hiya LCB'ers,



        Is the stress as being president taking its toll on Obama?

        The majority of Americans — nearly 60 percent — lack faith in President Obama, according to a Washington Post/ABC News poll published on Tuesday.

        The results are the exact opposite of what voters said in a similar poll at the beginning of Obama's presidency 18 months ago. Then, approximately 60 percent said they were confident with his decision making.

        The Washington Post said there were a number of  factors that may have affected the outcome, including problems in the housing industry, unemployment and the staggering economy.

        Only 43 percent said they approve the way Obama is handling the economy, while 54 percent said they disapprove.

        The results were based on polling 1,288 adults July 7-11, and the poll has a margin of  error plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

        Do you think the stress is more than he thought he would ever have to handle? Has he lost that air of confidence with the American people?

        If President Obama could do it all over again, knowing what he knows now, would he run for president?

        I've not lost faith in Obama, I've lost faith in Government.  
        Obama is just another piece of a malfunctioning machine.  Republican...democrat...whatever, its all the same these days...two sides of the same coin.  There really is no more Democracy as we know it...We now are governed by Corporatocracy.

        i'm talking about the  Washington Post/ABC News poll, if you can't tell that this country is going into the toilet and that the obama sheeple are starting to see the error of their ways without a newspaper poll...you really need some help.

        I hope he certainly has not lost faith in US as americans, hopefully he understands that WE are working just as hard as he is.

        He did say it was going to take some time, it cannot be done overnight, it is not just ONE thing he is facing.. he is facing a whole country with millions of different kinds of people, with different forms and ideas of freedom and religious values.

        I wonder how many people go with the flow..

        I think that though he is the President, and is in his power, that he hurts and feels just like us.
        I think if he could change things NOW he would and make us happy.. he faces the impossible.

        he feels nothing like the majority of us. if so, why want to sue arizona for standing up to ILLEGAL aliens?, why shove socialized health care down our throats, when no one wants it?

        Hey Man  .

        We all knew that this Congress never gets anything done.  But we now know that even more, realizing that more Americans are tired of "across the lines" bureaucracy and that just being the opposition isn't good enough.  So, I will give him that. 

        I thought that before the election that I wasn't going to hope that he was the President, for the reason of the spending that he had in mind, however, he's grown on me.  Wall-Steet is hiring right now, and if you have stocks, you should see some growth by September.  Business are comming back, unemployment will falter.

        After the economy does well, the result is inflation.  Inflation gets managed, and then the recession occurs.  Everyone now is banking on how historically the United States has had this cycle since the 1860's, business are investing again.  Its on suckas!!!!

        Poor guy, he came into a mess. Everyone is being hard on him, and like Imagin. said. He is only human, humans make mistakes, and I think some people forget that as human beings we are entitled to make mistakes. I mean last time I checked, we all make them.

        Give the guy a chance, then pass your judgement. Who are we to judge him anyways? Anyone here think they could do a better job Run for president then.

        Again, just my 5 cents.

        I think America had faith in change when Obama came into office. What I don’t think is realized is what it takes to make these changes. Change does not happen over night. This is the reality that people refuse to accept.

        We tend to focus on what is not done without ever giving any consideration as to how long the road is to unravel the damage that has been done in our country. We have short term memories, forgetting just how bad of a crisis we were in. It’s not what Obama has done thus far, it’s what can you do for me today.

        Barack Obama gets elected and everybody waits. The problem is nobody wants to wait too long. Then the firing squad comes out and people want instant results. Does it really matter who was elected? Does it matter if it was a Republican or Democrat? We had a Republican and we all know how that ended up.

        The real truth of the situation is no matter who was elected president, our country was in deep trouble. Let’s not forget Obama was elected president. He was not elected Jesus. He can’t walk on water, he can’t move mountains and he can’t perform miracles.

        But he can and has made changes for the betterment of our country. We are starting to see light at the end of the tunnel in our economy. The recession has slowed down and the fear of a great depression has lifted. He has eased Anti American tenisons throughout the world. He has made education a national pirorty for our children.  He brought restored faith around the world that Lady Liberty will always hold her torch high and beam with pride.

        But like everything in life, we all find fault. For every good thing done, someone is going to find something wrong. What happened to a our country that was once proud to be an American? Sometimes I think we are our own worse enemies.

        Lets not forget……..”Stand beside her, and guide her. Thru the night with a light of above. God Bless America, my home sweet home.

        Well, I never had confidence he could really do anything. He's just a figurehead, the REAL power lies in the Congress and Senate. And considering how those bozos have screwed us, seems we don't need a new Prez, we need new politicians who know and understand WHO PUT THEM IN THEIR POSITION.
