The fire is getting hot for President Obama. The crisis he is dealing with are amassing hotter everyday. His biggest crisis, the health Care debate, is at its apex of legislation , the house has passed it and it is waiting on senate approval. It looks like it will pass but it still can cause problems. The Afghanistan war is starting weigh down his thoughts. He included a firm exit plan in the strategy and made a very profound statement. ""The first country I am most interested in rebuilding is our own. The statement we cant afford and open end war to fight any enemy lest we might damage ourselves from within and destroy our economy. Jobs, Jobs Jobs is the number one issue for most Americans and The president has pledged to ramp up the help. However, will things happen first enough or within the required level we need to feel we have success. How can we truly gage success?

What he inherited from Bush was loads and loads of problems. Any newly elected president that succeeded him cannot really solve the problem easily, much less in less than a year. But I do admire his being cool. All is needed is hardwork, perseverance, staying positive and working hand in hand.

No one gets anywhere if they don't own the job and the situation. To continualy point back to the previous administration as an excuse is weak and intelectualy dishonest. Besides, many of the problems inhereted go much deeper than just one previous administration, one man, or one congress. the sooner he recognizes this and attacks the deeper causes, the sooner we can get some real solutions.

Hi, Sourceseeker. President Obama is doing just what he should be doing. The only thing that we as Americans can do is to wait and be very patient. We did not have conflict overnight and it is not going to take us overnight to get out of it! So from saying that, he is remaining calm for the sake of his own sanity and country. There is so much that needs to be done to make things better for us all. If he is doing the right thing then we should support him. After all he is the man that is fighting to keep this country together.. Something that Bush failed to do. I am very impressed on how he handles himself when pressure arrives. It shows that he has a strength that is very well maintained. His role is perfect as a President.

Jobs are at the fore front of American thought right now. The news about the dip in the unemployment rate is encouraging but still the number is too high. I heard that his presentation to congress for new job ideas has infrastructure in mind. Maybe it'll be a callabo with the auto makers and infrastructure for mass trans-american transit and futuristic eco-friendly transport. It'll be about time.
