While I'm not necessarily a fan of overall policy (yes they do receive college funds >_<), there are pros as well as cons.
    Either way, we're 15 trillion in debt, and that is not going to fix any day soon.

    I'm convinced that Obama's current economic policy is rather solid - the idea that you need to aggressively spend to jump-start the economy. It definitely worked for FDR back in the Great Depression. However, I am concerned over the way the money is spent / how efficient it's being put to use. Could use more focus. 15 trillion is definitely something ominous looming over our heads, but I really don't see how we would be able to cut and save enough to pay it back in a short enough time to not strain our economy. If Obama's plan works, it would be much more viable to pay it off over time (though as I've admitted before, the recovery has been rather slow and questionable).

    I just can't see a government that's constantly trying to minimize its losses helping our economy. With it already being so large, trying to change it by spending months debating over things such as the Balanced Budget Amendment will only lead to a shaky economy (remember how unstable the market was back during the fight over our budget?) and a high chance of another shutdown = crash. I'm not going to side with either party on this one - it's just the plain inability of our elected officials to negotiate and come to a compromise; it's not even their fault since they reflect on how polarized our nation has become. Sadly, politicians have become heavily influenced by lobbyists and the extremes of their party (the loudest bunch). Moderates simply don't speak up enough.

    Feel free to debate about it. I have an open mind, this is just my 2 cents.

    I can agree with you, both parties have issues and for me, untrusful. The only person I can see real change coming from is Ron Paul.

    That's like saying you can stand in a bucket and lift your self.

    It definitely worked for FDR back in the Great Depression.
    Lol, no. If anything, New Deal made things worse.

    I personally support Obama because you guys are being to heavy on him. Bush left him in a tough situation, and if we don't give enough support, he will not be able to get us out of this shit.

    Every single high profile speaker uses a teleprompter. I really don't see why people attack this.

    Try memorizing an hour-long speech please =/

    What people refer to is his speaking itself - it's clear, concise, and the delivery is superb. Just compare it to Cain's Libya interview or Perry's New Hampshire speech.

    It was a 5 minute speech.

    I am not a big fan of Obama, but between him and Romney I'd choose him 99/100 times. He hasn't made a big breakthrough while being a president (he didn't kill Osama- the soldiers did) but he's not as shitty as George W. either.
    God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy.

    The presidents are all good.
    Obama has made great descisions, but imo,
    Bush has made far better speeches and handled well under pressure, but everyone is biased about him, since he was president during 9/11.
    People need to know that it'd be hard to run a nation of 300 million suspicious people looking up to your descision.
