It only seems like Barack Obama has been president forever. Actually, as of today, he's been in office for exactly one month. Granted, with 47 months to go in his term, it's too soon to render a verdict on the Obama presidency. But surely a few early reflections on the Obama Revolution in Washington are apt. Campaigning is governing. Does Obama loathe Washington? It sure looks that way.
Obama the market killer. The Dow opened at 8281.22 on the morning of Obama's inauguration. Today it opens at 7465.95. And that don't count today as I just took a look at the way things are going it's going to be another down day today. That's a vote of practically no confidence in Obama's strategy for reviving the economy. The numbers were worse on the biggest days of the Obama presidency. The Dow fell 332.13 points on inauguration day, 381.99 points on the day Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner announced step two in the bank bailout, and 297.91 points when the president signed the stimulus bill three days ago. Financial markets are a bet on the future. The market's view is that an Obamanomics-driven economy looks grim.
I think we do know what his 'core value system' is. He is a liberal socialist and the Democrats believe they have a clear mandate to slam it down our throats and they are going to do that as quickly as possible before people catch on.
It seems to me that he has done more harm to this country in one month than any other President (even including Cinton and Carter) we have ever had.I think that this is now a socialist country and there is NO turning back. You cannot make one of those democrat congressmen and senators agree with that so, we will just sit here and watch this country go do the drain. There is nothing we can do. Soon the people who voted for Obama with come to life and realize what they have done when they don't get the FREE handouts they thought they would be getting. But will it be too late?
