7) Foreign Policies - Obama promised to improve our image in the eyes of the world. I guess he intended to do this by appeasing everyone but all he's done is snub Great Britain, abandon our allies in Asia and the Middle East, bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia and give credibility and recognition to terrorists who cut off peoples heads and abuse their women. I guess this is a change but not one I like. Before long we have handed our super power status over to China and they will run the world.
8) Obama bailed out all the big banks that had mismanaged their money and bought General Motors to save their Unions. Meanwhile the banks and automobile companies that used good business practices were hung out to dry. How's that right? Is this the change you voted for?
9) Environment - Obama's doing his best to pass "Cap and Trade" which will have no effect on Global Warming but will drive our energy costs so high that even more companies will fail and unemployment will go yet higher.
10) Economy - All I really need to say is that unemployment is now over 10% and in reality it is much higher than that if you count the underemployed and part timers who would like to be full time. Now to encourage growth he's going to let the Bush tax cuts expire and this will result in the largest tax hike in American history. That should help.
It doesn't look to me like Obama has changed much and the few changes he has made seem to be changes for the worse. Apparently a lot of other Americans agree with me and next week at this time we should have a chance for some real change. I just hope that all the new politicians that get voted in learn from their predecessors and are more responsive to the average American who just wants to be left alone.
