So I guess this year's hypebeast thing to do is hate on him...one year doesn't turn around 8, that's all I'm saying

Anyone wearing this probably couldn't tell you one thing he has or hasn't done since he came into office

I don't know that is a clever t-shirt..


There is 2 things Americans are. 1. Short-Sighted... 2. Want toughness


Obama looks weak tipping his hat to republicans and is not getting his big initiatives done. It is not completely his fault but if he pushed everything through and got tough with Republicans his Approval Rating would shoot up 10%.. He is starting to see the light but it is a little late to a lot of people..

does anyone have a video of Obama telling McCain "the election is over" when McCain is just bringing up valid points on the healthcare reform?
He just comes off as a arrogant person to me.

Thank you!!!  Man I get sick and tired of people think he can fix the problems that the bush administration made in less than 1 year! The economy was trashed years ago and nobody was on bush's head to fix it but Obama is suppose to do it now. give me a break!

I don't even follow politics at all, but if this is true then that's impressive TO ME.

It's only been a year since he's been president. He has so much things to do because of what Bush did the past eight years. I really think people are not liking him because everybody wants things done fast but it's not happening because it takes time for this type of stuff. I voted for the man and I will keep supporting him for the next three years.

It was to a lesser degree the couple of months after 9/11...the country was TOGETHER...

Hi here, B.A in polisci in a couple of months...and people need to stop riding Obama's d, and any other presidents D for that matter. People need to realize that, while the president is growing in power, there is still a super complex system of government that he must go through filled with deceit and yellow tape. it's not like any president can just walk into congress and be like "Do this" and it get done. He is trying his hard, he is playing politics. It must be done isn't this is second year in office? He's made strides. People nid pick on every little thing. It sucks because of the internet every presidency is very transparent, if you look back really look back into other Presidency's Obama's not doing bad with his first term. When the people stop being dbags and figure out what they want from their president than people will stop hating on him. You wanted change and he's starting change, he's not God just a dude trying to do the right thing.
