Is Obama to blame?

United States

Obama has been in office for about 2 months now. It is amazing how many people I hear blaming Obama for our current economic situation in this country. How much blame do you feel Obama should carry on his shoulders?

Okay, simple answer, no he's not to blame, but he's making it worse. The man is in over his head. He had no idea what he was getting into. Being the president to him is a social thing,(follow him on Twitter)and he's not leading the country, he's having dinner parties. I am still amazed at the amount of people that are still standing behind him. He is my president and I will support him but, between me and you, he's a buffoon.

Talker96, you never cease to entertain me. I mean that in the best of ways. I believe that he is in over his head. I just have a hard time believing that there is ANYONE who wouldn't be in over their head when stepping into the shoes of the President of the United States.

While I agree with the fact that I am entertaining, I also have to agree with you in your agreement with me that he is in over his head. But how deep in the water is he, this is the question that we must ask ourselves. While the presidency does age everyone that takes it, he has aged rapidly in a matter of months so as to have the medical community baffled.(see curiosities of the medical profession, article 18873) On a more humbling note, the man has not kept one promise that he campaigned with,he gave the Prime Minister of England(our closest ally) a 25 great American film classics DVD set, and has more celebrity(think extreme liberal) friends than political friends, add the fact that I think he truly believes his own hype and you have a recipe for disaster(or a recipe for Lasagna).

He got into office during tough times. Give him time then judge him.

Dude, two months is a bit too early right? Give the guy a break. Do you expect every thing to happen a fortnight?

I'm not American but from my perspective, it's still early to put the blame on Obama. Let's remember that he's been in the office for only a few months already and being the president of such a huge powerhouse country is a handful. What America can do at the moment is support him and hope for better things to happen.

I agree it is still too early in the game to start blaming Obama. There is much controversy about much that Obama has done in the short time that he has been in office. Espcecially where the economy is concerned. Many don't agree with the new stimulus plan but it will take some time to see if it is effective. Thanks for your comment.

None of it. It was a problem before he even took his oath.

I don't think that Obama should carry any of the blame for the current economic crisis. It took George Bush 8 years to fully dig us into this mess and nobody could possibly even begin to turn things around in a couple of months. It will take a while to see if his changes are going to help or hurt us worse so I think most of us are crossing our fingers and hoping for the best and that what he has done will help get us out of this mess.
