I Audaciously Hope He Fails...
I think we can all agree that of Americas first round of socialism, through which FDR brought: Income taxes, the governmental support & creation of unions,Wage and price controls, Welfare, Social Security, have all proven to be a competitive burdens that , in the long term, were helpful in driving manufacturing out of the U.S. and will be unsupportable by the generations after the baby boomers. Therefore, I do in fact hope that Obama fails in his efforts to create further socialist entitlement plans that will further destroy the free market system which made this country great.
You can distort a persons words on Obama, but none of us actually want him to fail in improving the United States. We just want him to fail in his efforts to implement harmful things to the American economy like enacting socialist programs that have a proven track record of harm.

Spoken like the true friend of needy children that she claims to be.The Katie Courics and other dilettentes can
eat their heart out.

Running up deficits and spending did not lead us out of the Great Depression. Obama's huge deficit budget won't get us out of a recession either. We will eventually come out of it and economists will once again prove that government does not create jobs but just moves money around and upsets the speed of an economies recovery.
Even leading democrats are balking at Obama's deficit spending ways. Democratic Rep. Gene Taylor of Mississippi took a shot at Obama’s budget, saying “change is not running up even bigger deficits that George Bush did.” They know that creating programs that can never die, amassing huge debt, devaluing the dollar and increasing the cost of money through debt financing is not good for America in the long run.

Here's hoping that Obama takes that "Team Of Rivals" book off his night stand and soon begins to read up on the Great Depression with some titles written by non socialist / Marxist leaning economists.
