    There is question as to whether or not he is concerned about his presidency. Having the financial sector and a part ot the manufacturing industry effectively nationalized and a grab for 14% more in the health services sector, there is a question just where he intends to go with this. Massive spending and the promise of more taxes, will effectively destroy the economy making the population more dependent on government for just the basics. How much further he will go depends on legislature and how far they are willing to go. Until November he has Reid and Pelosi backing him. There has been however some stirrings of discontent among some Democrats with the constant push for the health care package. If enough of them back away from the socialist agenda he carries, his drive to the left may become very limited. Time will tell, many politicians are starting to listen to the voters, and the voters aren't pleased.

    no.he is far too much an idealogue to move in any direction except to take a harder stance on his stated objectives.he really believes that the tax payers of america are too slow and stupid to know what is really best for us.we are not as well educated as he is,therefore we do not have the intelligence to reason and make decisions for ourselves.only the federal government can know what is best for us and how our dollars should be spent.for 70 years now,the democrats have figured that the way to get votes and to gain control,is to have every person in america dependent on the federal government for their daily bread and to control and,therefore,ration all of our other needs.

    Only enough to pick up the Republicans who are being alienated by the extreme religious rightwing Tea Party Radicals.

    Yes he will have to because most Americans are center conservatives. But he won't because he will then loose his liberal progressive Democratic supporters and the conservatives won't believe him'

    GDP growth is a POSITIVE 5.7% (the highest growth in 6 years), after falling to NEGATIVE 6.4% under Bush.

    IHS Global Insight says the economy has about 1.7 million more jobs today than it would have had without the stimulus.

    The Conference Board Index of Leading Economic Indicators is up for the NINTH consecutive month.

    That won't work. His political trickery is the only thing that is transparent.

    He's too late to save his slot--his days are numbered.

    a bit more then that but its against his faith and his communists beliefs to do that, unless he is reading his telepromter.
