I am not sure if Obama has a clue what to do as president. His facial tic is getting annoying and the stress is taking its toll on him. And Obama is not seated behind the president's desk yet. I guess it takes to be the president to understand any idiotic statement prior to the elections is ignorant and unfounded. Now, Obama realizes that this is not a joke and he is responsible for every single person living in America. So, I hope Obama stops his flip-flopping habits and sits down and understand that the seat of the presidency does not lend to on the job training. Therefore, Obama has a little over a month to get up to speed. His recent remark about the economy is embarrassing. You don't tell the American people that the economy is going to get worst. That's not going to help consumer confidence. It's not going to encourage spending and investing. The leader of the free world should give us hope, which I though was part of his campaign motto. I guess it was just a clever bumper sticker slogan.

PRES.-ELECT OBAMA: Well, fortunately, as tough as times are right now–and things are going to get worse before they get better–there is a convergence between circumstances and agend
