When voters thought they were electing the smartest man alive to be President of the United States, they were obviously not aware that he was going to use his intellectual prowess to 'shuck and jive' the public into backing failed programs with new names.

> Case In Point:

When voters thought they were electing the smartest man alive to be President of the United States, they were obviously not aware that he was going to use his intellectual prowess to 'shuck and jive' the public into backing failed programs with new names.

> Quote:

"Maybe the only other thing as insulting to Americans’ intelligence was Obama’s subsequent announcement of his debt reduction plan where he demonizes large corporations for taking advantage of loopholes in our tax code. I’m sure everyone knows Jeffery Immelt, the CEO of GE that paid no taxes last year, and the head of Obama’s jobs council. Can you say hypocrite?"

"While many consider politicians, particularly Obama, to be liars, it appears politicians, especially Obama, consider all Americans to be ignorant." ~ End Quote ~

The DNC and the Obama Administration knew that when they had successfully created 2.3 million jobs from Stimulus #1 Program, that it would degenerate and dissolve once the stimulus had run out and the Republican GOP restrictions had kicked-in, which it in fact did!!

Why would Stimulus #2 the 'American Job Act' be any different than the previous failure???

Please provide counter evidence to the contrary or confirmation of this current opinion and I don't just mean DNC/Liberal meaningless rhetoric; unless that's all you are able to muster here!!

Good luck to all those who oppose.

Some Care2 members will need to clean their home-computer monitor screen, because obviously their screen is blurry and they were unable to read my comment #1.

Everyone can vote in 2012 for whomever they choose, so you should decide for yourselves and not allow Care2 dictators to sway your opinion as it forms, but in my opinion if you vote for Obama, then it's just like it is in computer programming "Garbage in, is garbage out"!!

'When voters thought they were electing the smartest man alive to be President of the United States, they were obviously not aware...'

I don't think voters thought they were electing the smartest man alive. I think they thought they were electing a man with a new vision. Unfortunately, they elected a man with a catch phrase instead of a vision.

Just like buying a new laundry detergent because it makes whites, 'whiter than white', Americans believed a marketing ploy that cost more than a brand that was less well marketed. It's 'Mad Men' thinking.

Shuck and Jive? Nice choice of words for the article. Honestly, I couldn't finsih it.

Heidi, it sounds just like that children's show "Bob the Builder": "Can we build it? Yes we can!" and unfortunately Obama couldn't build it and his catch phrase then became ...

Nope We Can't.

In my perception, 'shuck and jive' is just a term that everyone can relate to as being 'lied to' or 'truth twisted' or 'song and dance', so only if someone is obviously reads it with a racist mind-set, then that is indeed how they will react to it ... In my opinion.

I live in an all Black neighborhood and my neighbors know exactly what I am writing about here, because I have gone door to door asking their opinion and they have told me that Obama is the biggest disappointment in their political lives ... And it's not worth their time discussing it any further.

We are all unhappy with President Obama's job performance and his continued steps toward Campaign 2012 over actually accomplishing anything of significance!!

So far on this comment line I fail to see anything even remotely resembling evidence or proof that President Obama's Stimulus 2 'American Job Act' is anything more than fodder for the sheep!

So why should we buy into his public delusion???

The DNC and the Obama Administration knew that when they had successfully created 2.3 million jobs from Stimulus #1 Program, that it would degenerate and dissolve once the stimulus had run out and the Republican GOP restrictions had kicked-in, which it in fact did!!

I'm going for Ron Paul, for what he is clearly right about, with ending the wars (for what very reasons.), ending the Fed and Drug War too. There are enough movements for improved Health Care and Social Security, that are going to tell him what the promoting the general welfare means to them. Its just as it looked to me in the Fall of 2007, that no matter who wins, its going to take the people united to demand what they want. How I wish we could unite on the worker ownership of The Mondragon Cooperative, of the Basque in Spain. On local grass-roots levels, it will get us an honest wage, where we then can take care of ourselves.

Ditto to Nyacks comments.

You cannot currently send a star to Nyack because you have done so within the last week.

Ingrid,GOP/rightcrazywingers have very short memories obviously. I'll give Obama his eight years just as Dubya had his..then we'll see how things are .....Dubya left us in a total economic mess as well as legal ones the world over to his wars for profits... and no doubt the many 'deals' not so above board when he started the ball rolling for the bail outs...along with the no bid contracts and so forth....but for now we must just keep trying to remind those with such short memories as some commenters above, of who and how we got into this mess and how long our current Pres. has had to try and do something about it..with an anti-recovery GOP controled house, that has been one hell of an uphill battle of course. But hey...Obama bashing for some is just their way of trying to ignore the part they played in supporting the Dubya gang ...their wars of death and destruction for profits etc. No easy for people to accept just how many have died due to their ignorance in supporting the worst President in our history for eight well as the debt he left our nation unpon his cowardly exit from the White House. Cowardly in that he arrive as one and that never changed. . .but hey, some are not here to remember the Pre Obama facts so I'll end my comment for now and let those blaming anyone but themselves for supporting Bush bash away at Obama... carrying on with the same ol same anger/or hate of the world around them and the President ...even if it takes their using terms like that in the title to get their teabags to dip'n,so ta say.

I get tired of seeing the distortions and mis-information put out by those on the right. But, I have to hand it to them (like Karl Rove & others) they are masterminds at this. They learned under R Reigan and kept on. And then you have those who without truly checking the facts, just parrot what these guys put out as propaganda.

To try and show facts or truths will not work, as they can not look at it or listen to it, or else they will change into a pillar of salt.

So, if you like what Bush did, to bring our country to the brink of disaster, then vote republican. They will complete the job that at least Obama stopped. And so far, they have done nothing to get jobs going, other than say give the rich more though that would create jobs. Never has since Regian.

Their newest thing now is (remember they are all in "lock step" on this) is to say that the reason there is no jobs is because of the EPA. They want to get rid of nusence regulations to free up businesses (mostly oil and coal, power companies) to do as they please.

Who needs clean water, clean air, food inspections (to stop disease and people getting killed) and other things that protect all of US. Even China laughs at this.

So, keep up this kind of stuff, yell FIRE in the theater (even if there is no fire there).

When real leadership can't be found, people will follow anyone who seems to present that "front". I agree with Michael, but wonder if Ron Paul's age will be an impediment for him. I just want to elect a president who remembers the constitution.. It was written for the people................

Ok Mindy, make everyone breathe easier and replace shiok and jive with smoke and mirrors? Hard to believe that there are still those out there who think it was all Geirge's fault. See I spelled that the same way Nick spells Reagan who by the way was the greatest President I had the pleasure to work for. I also saw the infantilism if the Clinton administration and the solid thinking of George Bush, Sr.. I'll not mention much about Jimmy Carter other than to say that he is now smiling as Obama takes the lead for worst President ever. Still blaming the republicans for EPA when this President gutted the new clean air regulations, allowed North Slope oil drilling, etc? The Obama administraion has a horrible environmental record. However, they have set records for largest and most expensive first lady's staff and I can't begin to imagine the size of the President's travel bills that get billed to us shills. And how 'bout all those Wall Street insiders now on Obama's staff? Man. you have to be blind or worse to continue supporting this guy.

I can't believe I was so sucked in as to support this man. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. Ain't gonna happen dude. He's outta there if the Republicans can come up with better than the 1,001 clowns they have so far fielded.

We need adult leadership and not a good orator and fund raiser! Throughout the press I've seen no one supporting his plans except for a couple of left wing idealogues. Even Joe Biden klnows better.

Mr. Obama is just 1 more example of the system. Methinks we are looking at a Corporate Capitalist version of the ol' USSR. At the end, it didn't matter who was in power or what policies they pretended to be promoting. The foundation of the, "system" had been become so petrified & decayed that any major adjustment would destroy it quickly while non-action would see it collapse, slow-speed. It wasn't the end of Russian history, but the nation had to go through some very hard times before it could return to any sense of, "normalcy." The scary thing is that the American Elite, with support from the international Elite, seem hell-bent on never giving up their perks, power and prestige. Therein lies the potential for rough sailing ahead.

The first stimulus Obama gave out did in fact end up losing jobs for people and so far this one nobody wants to jump on the band wagon..should tell us something! Amazing though how the left STILL keep blaming Bush and everyone else for what Obama has put us in! Mind blowing! He has not been able to accomplish anything so far so a job act is surely going to back fire too!

I myself, honestly believe that part of the reason he got in was because of the negative aspect people felt from the Bush Admist. People actually thought with a different party in we would be cleaning up this mess and be going in a postive direction. Boy what a big surprise that has turned out to be!!!!!!!!

Fighting words, potentially racially charged words, "shuck and jive" type words rarely change people's hearts and minds. Indeed, there is the tendancy to circle the wagons and protect. I am open to the fact that this President has some faults, who doesn't? But cheap slurs like this will never change my mind and I feel that he's the better person for the job.

obama comes with the the same failed programs and thinks changing the name and shouting pass this bill now will make people not pay attention. wrong. we can see when we are being duped he's done a really good job of teaching us that. even the senate hasn't brought his bill up to the floor. that tells you what the dems think about it too. i don't think obama really cares. he's off doing his favorite thing campaigning, that's all he's done since he's been elected. well when he's not on vacation or traveling with 500 people looking for his roots. time for somebody else to take over. we need a person that isn't 2 faced and has at least held a real job. leading marches doesn't count. byebye obama.

Which means you're black PM? Funny, you don't look it in your profile.

As far as your 'neighbourhood' who cares? Seems Obama's support has slipped somewhat from blacks but the L.A. Times says it slipped 7% from 92% to 85% (April/11). Yeah, a big 'no-support' isn't it? In fact the Times still calls it 'immense' support.

Which is why I don't believe or trust 3/4 of anything you ever say. Strange isn't it.

Some people would rather use smoke and mirrors and empty insults in order to divert away from the real paramount issues at hand, rather than face-up to the facts.

Another Care2 article to chew on:

Americans broadly expect President Obama to be a one-term president in the wake of the Solyndra scandal and extremely low job approval that he's been receiving over the past seven months or more, in regard to a continued failing economy & unemployment.

I'm not a Rep or Dem. I vote the man not the party. We need to get away from carreer politicians from both parties who have proven their incompetence. Who do you think has put us in this chaos??? We need a BUSINESS MAN man who can BUDGET the spending and get us out of this hole that has been dug by POLITICIANS. We need a person who has had to work his/her way up from the working class, not one who isn't in touch with reality. We need person who doesn't talk around the issues, but has a plan to deal with them. WE NEED REAL CHANGE, NOT PROMISES!!! If you keep voting for the ideals of the party instead of the man you are as conservative as those people you critize. VOTE THE MAN, NOT THE PARTY. NO MORE CAREER POLITICANS!!!!

It's OK to show things our President does wrong (in your opinion). I don't agree 100% with everything Obama has done or proposed. But, if you truly want a discussion, you need to show both sides, which is never done here. And Obama has done many great things for all of US, not like our previous President.

And even though I disliked most of what Bush and his gang did, I still liked some things. I was raised in a republican household, and would vote all the way without thinking too much. Then, I started to open my eyes and really look at the positive and negitives of the canidate. So, at times I've voted for a republican or a democrate.

However, more recently, since the last Bush (I voted for his father), I doubt that republicans really care about the 98% of US citizens. I think this way by the way they propose or make laws. And so far, it's bad and getting worse. Everything from voter surpression, to stopping peole from having rights at work.

I've asked this before and still waitng for an answer. Please, name one law that republiclans either tried to pass, or passed that was totally to help the average citizen of this country.

So far, the answer is zip.
