    I give Obama an A for being very successful in instituting his Marxist agenda. No other democrat has been able to accomplish such an agenda in the past. Therefore, the communist pledge to take over America without firing a shot is coming true. Marxism is a battle to be won in the minds of people by creating class envy between the poor and the rich with the ultimate goal for the redistribution of wealth. In the USA the poor outnumber the rich. The rich feel guilty about having so much, so they lean toward Marxism. Therefore the majority middle class gets the shaft.

    the rich feel guilty about having so much?????? so they tend to lean to marxism????? are you sure? I understand why the poor want the rich to share but I have never met a succesful business man or entrepeneur who felt they didn't earn what they had.

    disagree. If anything it was nothing but great for the democratic party. I would just like to see everyone trying to go for whats best for the people. Not just politics and republicans voting down everything to the teeth just so Obama won't be successful. They won't win the presidency this way they are just fighting for a leg to stand on for the next presidential campaign rather than doing what's best for this country.

    What part and why? Fair questions…

    1). First, I’m skeptical of anything this guy says. While he may have some impressive academic credentials, he’s nothing more than a Heritage Foundation shill -- a neo-con columnist with an agenda. Furthermore, it turns out he was Rudy Giuliani’s foreign policy advisor during that joke of a presidential campaign. (Translation? When in doubt, bomb ‘em).

    As another observer so aptly put it, “This baby-faced power-groupie pops up whenever cable news needs a posh voice to promote the neocon party line and suck up to the Defense Department.â€

    I personally don't think he will. Unfortunately Bush-era Republican policies that got us into this mess will drag on just long enough for the American electorate to blame the current problems on Obama. When you have presumably intelligent people (like Lawman) who think Obama gets an A for advancing his "socialist" agenda, even in the absence of his ability to get anything accomplished then I don't think he has a prayer. The Republicans in Congress could care less about solving problems and the Democrats in Congress are too stupid to realize why they were elected into the largest congressional majority in a generation.

    what do you mean the republicans could care less? They have been offering but receiving the cold shoulder from the Dems. The issue is not about the Bush era policies, but about the decisions made long ago by Barney Frank, Dodd, Pelosi, who ignored the warnings that we were headed for trouble. You can't spend your way out of a recession.

    Roy, who are the ones who decided to get involved in two wars without paying for them, cut taxes for the wealthy without cutting expenditures to balance the offset in revenue and legislate a 1.2 trillion dollar prescription drug program without paying for it. With all due respect Roy, the facts place the blame for our current fiscally irresponsible budget squarely on Bush and a Republican controlled Congress. Please prove me wrong.
