    I don't agree with the health reform bill that was passed, but how did it detract from his dealing with the economy? As for the $800 billion stimulus plan - IT was already in the works under Bush - who to this day believes that it was the best approach to the crisis. Looks to me like you're just out to bash Obama! I didn't vote for the man, but I WILL say that he's got more courage and integrity than other presidents of late...to the point where he's disappointed many of his left-wing supporters because he takes into consideration the advisement of his national security, military, foreign policy, and intelligence departments - unlike others who have instead yielded to private interests and political pressure. Oh...and in case you were on vacation or something at the time - the economic shit was already starting to unravel well before his presidency began. There's alot of his agenda that I don't like...but there's also alot that I DO like - especially in the realm of foreign policy, foreign relations, and defense - all of which are just as critical as anything else to the well being of the U.S. He's doing okay.
