I have been watching the Congress carefully for years now, ever since 9/11. The fact is we have been in a crises in many areas for years but the Democrats had sufficient pull to stop anything beneficial from going through while a Republican was in the White House because they would rather the country suffer then they lose power by him getting credit for it, which the President always does even when he had nothing to do with it one way or the other. Compounded by utter incompetence in the National GOP members it was just a matter of time. So here we are, reaping the reward of a Congress that cares more about person power and profit then the people they are supposed to represent. If you doubt it just go read the list of ear marks in the spending bill they passed.
... and one of them just became our President... and the same people who helped create the problem in the first place are now advising him... yay us...
i live in LA too! and i know all (well, actually i don't know... but who would really want to?) the ins-and-outs people use to smuggle drugs into the US, but was speaking more of the political standing between the US and the drug-providing countries. like how the US provides guns to the militias in countries like Venezuela cuz they have American ideals, but that can go backwards in a lot of ways...
but that's neither here nor there...
totally agree with Arrianna, the president has no real power, those lie in the other two branches. it's all about checks and balances, and unfortunately they wrote to many checks and didn't keep an eye on the balance.
strictly speaking economically, there's not much anyone can do at this point besides count pennies and having even more suspicious thoughts when listening to banks and wall streeters...

i live in LA too!
but anyway, i'm completely backing out now because i feel utterly naive in all of this. but this is the last thing i have to say;
THIS IS WHY OBAMA IS EVIL:
NOOOO! he has the matrix!!!
Why is everyone hating on Obama so bad?
He hasnt even had the chance to move as a president before someone starts criticizing him, some of you have even called him the "Anti-Christ", dont forget, Bush is the one who F'd everything up, why is Obama taking the heat? He's doing his job as a President and we the people who put him in office need to back him up and fix this economic crisis.
This problem wont be fixed in a snap of a finger, is that what you are expecting? I'd hope not, because Obama has his hands full on this one. And so would any other president. LET OBAMA DO HIS JOB, its MUCH to early to tell if he is a good president or not.

Because Bush didn't "F'd everything up" Congress (and Clinton policies) did, he just didn't do anything to keep them from making it worse. Because Obama has made his move already and every single move he makes only makes things worse. It's not that hard to tell there is a problem when every time he opens his mouth to "fix" things the stock market drops instead. This isn't a case of wanting a solution that works with a snap of a finger. This is just some realism in a situation that Obama is exacerbating so badly the head of the EU came out and told him to cut it out. It is not even necessarily a case of hating Obama, it is simply being realistic about his policies and what they are doing and will do if allowed to continue.
The socialist-liberal politicians have been wanting a chance to prove what they could do with our government. Well now they get to show us and it hasn't been pretty so far.
BTW, if Congress had done their job there would be no need for the President to get involved then or now.
I think that he is a deciever but he is trying really hard to be a good president. I don't really have a problem with him exept for the fact that he wants America to be a communist country and that he won't release his birth certificate. That makes me wonder if he was born in the US, you know?
I personally think that this election was dead because no one was really a good nomination. Hillary would be okay but if she was PMSing, then she would blow up some country. Obama is a deciever but works hard. Mccain is old and would've died and then we would have Palin and that would SUCK!!!!!!!!!! XD

The economy was in bad shape because of Clinton, not Bush. Bush and his polocies were actually helping the ecomeny untill the bubble of which Clinton and his people established colapsed. Once again, Bush's only part in this mess was him not standing up to the senate and the house to salve this bruwing problem, nothing else.
As for the war which you brought up, Bush was actually doing very well in by allowing our Generals do what they needed to do. The war is a Gorilla war and these take a hell of a long time to fight.
And now its Obama's war, which he changed the name to from the war on terrer to the “Overseas Contingency Operation.” (What ever the hell thats suppose to mean) So its actually Obama's war now.
