    From Obama's daily dose of scare tactics to Geithner nonsense all we hear is how bad things are. Where the hell is the uplifting motivational words? Damm! Fake it if you have to but say SOMETHING positive!

    Reagan inherited a shitty economy too but he motivated the people and assured them we will be fine.
    He made us PROUD to be American, not ashamed!

    Even Bill Clinton has picked up on this fact!

    Bill Clinton offers advice on optimism
    February 21, 2009

    President Obama continues to get lots of advice - like it or not - from the last Democratic president, Bill Clinton.

    Yesterday, Clinton said it's time for Obama to be somewhat more optimistic about the economy to boost consumer confidence.

    "I like trying to educate the American people about the dimensions and scope of this economic crisis. . . . I like the fact that he didn't come in and give us a bunch of happy talk," Clinton said in an interview aired on ABC's "Good Morning America."

    "I just would like him to end by saying that he is hopeful and completely convinced we're gonna come through this," he added in the latest of a series of TV interviews this week.
  3. We desperately need another Ronald Reagan.
  4. Give it a rest. The economic circumstances today are unlike any seen in generations. Were the Big 3 automakers in danger of going under when Reagan was president? Were the country's largest financial institutions on the verge of collapse? Obama DOES say he believes in the resolve and ability of the American people to get through this crisis, but he is not sugar coating it because he assumes that you are adults who want to know the truth, rather than listen to bedtime stories about sugar cookies. Unlike the case with the previous administration, you are being armed with facts instead of condescension.

    Sweet, beautiful and innocent.
  6. Hope and optimism provided the public with the motivation to elect a candidate without much scrutiny of political philosophy, but do not provide the proper platform to install socialism.

    Fear is best.
  7. The truth and facts right now have a well-know pessimistic bias.

    But don't let those facts interfere with your investment or trading strategy, whatever you do.

    Oh no.

    The more fearful, the more likely we are to accept the Socialistic "solution"... even BEG for it! :mad:
  9. You have got to be kidding. When was the last time we ever heard Bush say anything inspirational, or any Republican for that matter. No, every time he talked we cringed and clenched our teeth in horror that we may be hearing the next Bushism. Every time he would talk about the economy, he’d say something like, “ yea I know times are tough, the American people are struggling.” Meahwhile he didn’t do anything about it. He couldn’t even stand up to anybody. He had no guts. All he cared about was bombing people and invoking fear into the masses.

    Compare that to our to our new leader. Do you think Bush could have ever said this?

    America, we have come so far. We have seen so much. But there is so much more to do. So tonight, let us ask ourselves -- if our children should live to see the next century; if my daughters should be so lucky to live as long as Ann Nixon Cooper, what change will they see? What progress will we have made?

    This is our chance to answer that call. This is our moment. This is our time, to put our people back to work and open doors of opportunity for our kids; to restore prosperity and promote the cause of peace; to reclaim the American dream and reaffirm that fundamental truth, that, out of many, we are one; that while we breathe, we hope. And where we are met with cynicism and doubts and those who tell us that we can't, we will respond with that timeless creed that sums up the spirit of a people: Yes, we can.

    If you like what Obama has to say then you must love these quotes from Obama & friends.................

    "I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

    "My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you'll join me as we try to change it."

    "I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of twelve or thirteen, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites."

    "I found solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother’s race."

    "To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists."

    "I learned to slip back and forth between my black and white worlds. One of those tricks I had learned: People were satisfied so long as you were courteous and smiled and made no sudden moves. They were more than satisfied; they were relieved -- such a pleasant surprise to find a well-mannered young black man who didn't seem angry all the time."

    "I had learned not to care. I blew a few smoke rings, remembering those years. Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it. Not smack, though. ..."

    "...I've got two daughters. 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby."

    "I can no more disown (Jeremiah Wright) than I can disown the black community." --UPDATE: Barack Obama decides to "disown" him on Tuesday, April 29th after he realized his campaign was in severe turmoil due to his association with Mr. Wright.

    "The point I was making was not that Grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn't. But she is a typical white person..."

    "That’s just how white folks will do you."

    "You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, and like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."

    "We need somebody who's got the heart, the empathy, to recognize what it's like to be a young teenage mom, the empathy to understand what it's like to be poor or African-American or gay or disabled or old - and that's the criterion by which I'll be selecting my judges."

    Call to Islamic prayer is “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”

    Michelle Obama (wife)

    "For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country, because it feels like hope is making a comeback." --UPDATE: Uttered in a campaign speech only AFTER her husband, Barack, began winning.

    "That is why I am here, because Barack Obama is the only person in this who understands that. That before we can work on the problems, we have to fix our souls. Our souls are broken in this nation."

    "Barack is one of the smartest people you will ever encounter who will deign to enter this messy thing called politics."

    "... as a black man, you know, Barack can get shot going to the gas station, you know."

    "My experiences at Princeton have made me far more aware of my 'blackness' than ever before."

    "Earlier in my college career, there was no doubt in my mind that as a member of the Black community I was somehow obligated to this community and would utilize all of my present and future resources to benefit this community first and foremost."

    "The truth is most Americans don't want much. Folks don't want the whole pie. Most Americans feel blessed to thrive a little bit, but that's out of reach for them. The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system, someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more." --NOTICE: See the video entitled " Michelle's America: Socialism in the Heartland" on our homepage to view the quote and associated commentary.

    Jeremiah Wright (Barack Obama's pastor and spiritual mentor for 20 years)

    "Racism is how this country (America) was founded and how this country is still run!"

    "America is still the number one killer in the world."

    "We (Americans) are deeply involved in the importing of drugs, the exporting of guns and the training of professional KILLERS. . . . We believe in white supremacy and black inferiority and believe it more than we believe in God. . . . We conducted radiation experiments on our own people. . . . We care nothing about human life if the ends justify the means!"

    "We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America's chickens are coming home to roost." -- (commenting on the 9/11 attacks)

    "The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing 'God Bless America.' No, no, no, God damn America, that's in the Bible for killing innocent people. God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme."

    "In the 21st century, white America got a wake-up call after 9/11/01. White America and the western world came to realize that people of color had not gone away, faded into the woodwork or just 'disappeared' as the Great White West kept on its merry way of ignoring black concerns."

    "Racism is how this country was founded and how this country is still run. No black man will ever be considered for president, no matter how hard you run Jesse [Jackson] and no black woman can ever be considered for anything outside what she can give with her body."

    "We (the United States of America) started the AIDS virus."

    S. Ann Soetoro (Obama's mother, an Atheist who married a Kenyan Muslim)

    "They (Americans) are not my people!"

    William Ayers ("acquaintance" of Barack Obama's in Chicago)

    ''I don't regret setting bombs. I feel we didn't do enough.'' -- spoke during an interview on September 11th

    "Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, kill your parents, that's where it's really at."

    "Everything was absolutely ideal on the day I bombed the Pentagon."
