Me thinks something's afoot

And the news Monday that the Obama administration would delay release of a congressionally mandated report on the nation's economic conditions only stoked the rhetoric, spawning GOP speculation that the White House is trying to avoid bad news amid the health-care debate.

"The last time the president made grand promises and demanded passage of a bill before it could be reviewed, we ended up with the colossal stimulus failure and unemployment near 10 percent," Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) said. "Now the president wants Americans to trust him again, but he can't back up the utopian promises he's making.

The "messiah" is going down faster than Linda Lovelace in her prime. You're damn right it's "bad news", because that's all he's got! Senator Demint has taken a leadership role in Barry's demise, and as proof, Barry mentioned him by name in one of his addressess. As Senator Demint said yesterday, healthcare is Barry's "Waterloo", and could be the end of him politically...

He went from amazing public support to rapidly decreasing vote. Hopefully Congress impeaches him if nothing else, than out of their own self preservation

Correction, he didn't even mention his name, just his statement.

Fail Obama, fail and fucking leave.

He couldn't be bothered with any names coming from his messianic mouth.

Meanwhile, his numbers are faltering, much like his presidency is. I can't wait until a ton of this shit is challenged. Hopefully the Supreme Court will do more rolling back than Walmart.

I personally think the shit will hit the fan again later this year. We may not have hit bottom yet.

I've got a full tank of oxygen and a weight belt on. Where's the light so I can see that bottom when we get there?

With Obama pushing the CBO to hold off on it's reports, I'm thinking we're in a MUCH worse place than even the conservatives have thought

He's trying to hide that shit until the idiots vote in socialized health care. Those numbers he's hiding must be really bad, if he fears it might affect his commie health care programs.

He still has a long way to fall.

He hitched his wagon to this whole recovery thing to get elected. Despite the fact that government has little to do with economic cycles. I guess when you lie to people and you make promises that is the chance you take.

The economy isn't going to change significantly from now until the end of the year. During that time his public support is going to continue to erode. In 2010 you will start to see some Democrats trying to distance themselves to get ready for the elections that are coming up.
