The president's progress with the battered economy has been both praised and criticized.

This is a poll sponsored by Yahoo and AT&T. I'm sure most have guessed by my posting of it, the results thus far are not pretty, but even I was shocked at just how ugly they are.......before Mizz goes on his customary tangent, I am not saying or implying that this poll is scientific, but while the results may be skewed one way or the other since anyone can vote as many times as he\she likes, it along with other numbers do seem to be showing a direction, a direction that is beginning to show some bit of sunlight through the liberal and socialist infested clouds we are under now.....that sounds a bit harsher than I mean it, but still.....may 2012 hurry along.

Awesome for me, and it seems like the economy is agreeing with me. Dad is about to buy either an equinox or escape hybrid, and I'm getting an apple laptop in a month or so, so I would outlook is great. Thanks Obama, or the real people who are stimulating the economy.

lol cool. do you got any programs a noob to apple would need to have to make the transition more smooth, or just popular good useful ones for the avg user.

Yep. im not gonna say the economy was all great. my mom was on the otherside, but she is getting back to a good level. you can not give obama credit or fault for the economy now. he has not even been in office for 100 days, and his stimulus has only paid 60mil of the 728mil expected.

Honestly, most of what you need is there. I've added a couple of things to help with video playback (plugins for Windows video files like Flip4Mac), but other than that, it's pretty much good to go out of the box. I added Microsoft Office and Citrix remote access to keep it compatible with work, and I use Firefox instead of Safari for most uses.

considering it has already bombed and left many dealerships screwed. I still say what I have been saying all along. Dude is a great publicspeaker but that doesnt make him a great president

i dont think so. no1 expected it to be this popular. can you be mad at a company, when its product sells out? the dealerships are going to get reimbursed, and they should have the money by the end o the week. ask almost every economist, and they did not expect this, and its their job to look at the economy.

even if they do get reimbursed it doesnt change the fact that dude has blown billions with little to no effect. Is going to end up raising taxes when he promised he wouldnt and the unemployment rate continues to clime. I understand our economy is not a quick fix but he shouldnt amke promises that he has no intention of keeping

umm since march the economy has been growing. we went from a loss of 6.5% GDP to 1%. the Dow is higher than it was when he was elected, and this is all with in the first 6months. i dont know any1 who can claim to switch their business from falling to growing with in 6 months, also about the billions, the stimulus has not even gotten to 1/10th the ammount they are going to spend. Id relax on these crazy outbursts, and just give it more time. the economy is not fixed and it is going to take away, but this crazy backlash against obama is getting annoying.( not talking about you lou)

in my opinion, the economy has gotten better for the higher class. The lower class is in even worse shape. More lost jobs and more homeless. Actually reminds me of a country song I heard the other day, The line that stuck in my head was, In the real world there shuttin Detroit down while the bossman takes his bonus pay and jets on out of town. There bailing out them bankers while the farmers auction ground,

if they have more programs like cash for clunkers, then i think we will be out of this recession in a year or two. They is not Obama, which is who you were attacking. Economy is still in a recession, so of course your going to have more job loss and homeless, but its august, and he came into office in jan, so you cant expect him to fix it already, but programs like this cash for clunkers is really helping the auto industry, and i think the stimulus will make a huge dent. also people are buying american cars. we can not find a 2010 Chevy Equinox, they are selling like hot cakes. two of the dealers in memphis, had them sold out in the first week of having them.

i also find it funny that your attack obama on the the republicans idea of the trickle down effect, but dont worry i learned that i hate socialism when i thought i supported it. ( government teachers can be tricky)

Unfortunately jobs are on the tail end of the turnaround. First you have to stimulate the economy so people can hire people <_<

im not saying it is all Obamas fault. I just think it is to early for him to start breaking promises. Less than a year ago he said he would not raise taxes and now he cant promise he wont. Personally, I am not a republican or democrat. I vote for whoever I think is the best man for the job reguardless.

true but if thats the case then they should have some kind of program that helps people from losing everything when they get laid off. **** my mom has been a librarian at a college in my hometown for 16 years. Last month they fired her with no warning because they said they couldnt afford to pay her. Then about a week later they gave the pres and vice pres of the school pay raises. Now im stuck working 3 jobs so that I can pay my bills and her bills because I refuse to let her lose the house that she has lived in for 25 years. The government shold have rules against **** like that and find a way to help the little people when **** like that goes down

I don't know about that. I heard the dealerships racked up a tab before the government even approved the program.

There are a lot of these dealership types that are mightEE pissed at the way their businesses had to default on loans made at the insistence of GM and Chrysler.

Plus the government wants to make good on its return in the new company by selling off the huge inventory and absorbing the banks' losses.

THE REAL QUESTION IS ARE WE GONNA START EXPORTING THE GAS GUZZLERS TO CHINA?

Exactly. I understand that helping the upper class will eventually help the lower class as well but what good does that do if by the time the lower class finally starts getting help they are homeless? EVer tried to get a job being homeless? It aint that easy

#1 Not all the stimulus money approved has actually been appropriated yet.

#2 Some of that stimulus money is keeping cops on the beat to enforce the law. For example...The City of Atlanta. Tax revenue is down because the economy crashed and the City has no real answers.
