Obama Still Doesn't Get It

Obama Still Doesn't Get It

Commented Feb 11, 2010 at 03:15:43 in Business

“I have to say, after reading most of the comments, I have come to the conclusion that most of the people are apprehensive in their thoughts about Obama.

One does not have to speak down constantly towards the ones he wishes to conform.

Obama does not rush like Bush into matters and then flop in the end.

Care is needed and time to get the desired effect. The situation Obama has been handed does not leave room for failure in the end. One can only use extreem care in moving forward. Such is the situation now!

I do not wish to cover up for be a fan of Obama's either. I only wish to not rush to judgement, because I like most of you on these blogs still have a computer, home and internet from which to communicate from. I would like to hear more about what the poor people who lost a home 2 years ago think!”

“From reading Obamas book "Dreams from My Father".
Barack Obama deals with his indepth feelings and ideas about hate.
Obama understands that hate is a politicians dream, which is why nothing often gets done.
Why? Because the genious of hatefull politics is that you can easily unite people, while
bearing no ressposibilty for delivering anything in return.

This hold true also for the past appouch between Isreal and Palistine.
US and Iran. The war on terror. Black Nationalist. And White Nationalist.

I dont think your going to find Obama doing things the way they have been done.
Because in his mind, they past politics of hate and fear offered nothing to resolve the problem or make peoples lives better!

Americans should be proud! Because after all, this is one of the only places on earth you may ever see such an advancement in thinking take power and lead!”

“Yeah its true!
All of these problems stem from unfair housing loan practices that never served the public but only the giant company who can send money in a loop from one company to another. Hiding while making a quick buck.

Why does a family have to be kicked out of a home when a new credit line can be extended to them just like one has been extended to the banks? Why not just bypase the banks in the first place.

In Denmark you cannot sell a person a credit card for the price they are asking in interest in the US.
They have never heard of such cost! Guess what? Banks do not even charge you an account montthly fee. Why? Because they make money off of holding your money!

THE US BANKING SCAME NEEDS TO BE DEALT with in a major blood sucking way!”

“I work in an industry peripheral to housing and have watched loan closings every day for 10 years

There is enough responsibility to go around

Unscrupulous, unregulated mortgage brokers and real estate agents who counted on the fact that borrowers would not educate themselves

Borrowers who never read the papers they were signing, only caring about the check

Borrowers who refinanced their homes 3 times in one year to take out money for a vacation or a new flat screen

Appraisers who turned in inflated numbers to mrotgage brokers they were in cllusion with, often taking money under the table.

Yes, lets make sure that lenders must negotiate with homeowners who are behind and give them a chance to keep their home

However, many of the people who are now in foreclosure will NEVER BE ABLE TO AFFORD THE HOMES THEY BOUGHT even if lenders will negotiate. Lets insure that lenders are also willing to negotiate accepting short sales. for people who will never be able to keep these properties”

“i agree!
obama will never have a more powerfull position than the one he has now in government, so he should slay all that need to be slayed and set a clear example.

obama is the cautious type. so i would bet he will first give a clear chance for compliance before he slays.
but do not wait to long to handle the peoples business.

“Americans are so stupid. The way you give money to foreign nations, with no knowledge of what the foreign nations are doing with your money.

All that Hamas has proved is that no amount of weapons or American money will save Israel.
So the only thing left for Israel to do is blow up the whole region because not one nation wants the Israelis in the region. Not because they are Jews, but because they are mostly foreigners with no care for the middle east at all. Only Israel.

Israel did not work, because Americans support of Saudi Arabian royal family, the Egyptian leadership and the support of several groups that have only regard for OIL and Diamonds over peoples lives!

Israel is just one of many American flops. Israel was stupid for thinking they can do the same thing other bad nations have done.”

Garvagh on Dec 30, 2008 at 15:08:27

“Hamas has given many signals over the years it would accept Israel within its pre-1967 borders.
Israel can thrive in the 78% of what was Palestine under the British mandate, and allow Palestine to exist in the 22% that are represented by the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Hamas was created to prevent a sell-out of the Palestinian cause by Fatah.”

“Yeah, its funny to see the word impossible be used.
America is in the shap it's in because people di not do the possible a ling time ago.

There nothing impossible about what needs to be done.
Anytime people start talking about stupid crap, side stet it and talk about something real.

If the congress ot senate attempt to bog down debate then make an executive order.
If they attempt to empeach you, step down and let some idiot step forward.

It's not Obama that did so much to win the election in the first place.
It what the others did to loose.

We are just about to loose one jerk. Give Obama at least one day in office before we decided the outcome!”

“It’s so funny to see Christians, Jews and Muslims get their fair share of TV time.
But that’s all it will ever add up to be. Unfortunately for them, it’s not as simple as the gay people killing the rest of humanity. It’s the straight people that are about to blow up the world with their retarded religions, based in plagiarisms.
Who inslaved Africans in the sub-Saharan slave trade. I don’t think it was gays. Who blew up the world trade center. I do not think gays did that either. Who build a country off of slavery. It was not gays.
Man, this gays sht is way off the scal of what is important now.
Let the idiots listen to that crazy crap! I know for a fact Obama does not believe any of the crazy sht Rick Warren has to say about Christianity. Because he would also have to believe he is cursed by Ham!
Don’t worry non, Rick Warren is for the show. Nothing else!”

“Osama Bin Laden should do exactly what he has been doing. He has been working through the Saudi family and the Bin Laden Family to create a war based on religion as a cover, for making billions of dollars on weapons and oil! It sunny how Bin Laden is supposed to be a black sheep of the family, but has been propped up by his family and the CIA under George Bush senior.

I does not surprise me that people still believe all of this just happened out of the BLUE and make no connection to the players involved.

Forget what Osama should do and start thinking, what should Americans and the rest of what is left of the free world should do?

Screw BUSH and OSAMA. They are all pure deceivers of the ignorant and stupid.”

“Exactly! Excellent article.

Finally we are on the right track. It is without any doubt, that BUSH allowed all of the above to happen on purpose! So the question is simple. Are we going to enter into a new age where we hold people resposible from the top? Or are we Americans going turn a blind eye?

It's up in the air, because all Americans are not thinking straight!
Maybe our new president will encourage investigations and action to taken on behalf of the American people.”

“I completely disagree with this article and comments. It is so easy for all of you liberals to blame Bush for everything. He did not put in force the Community Reinvestment Act, he did not shelter Fannie Mae etal (the Democrats in Congress did) he did not force banks to make risky loans, Shumer , Frank and dodd did.
I cannot wait for all of you to finally take accountability and at least your part of it when you have noone else to blame but the tax and spend give away Democrats.,”

Bad managment from the top equals EMERGENCY!

All the problems that we have are because we have allowed and our politicians have allowed CEO's all the slak to ROB the American workier and the American TAX payer.

They don't need more money without changing the rules.

The question is simple. Are the CEO as patriotic as the worker and the tax payers they are asking to recieve monye from?”
