Borger: Have we seen too much Obama?

(CNN) - President Obama has made his priorities very clear: health care, energy and education. The speech is more like a standard State of the Union address - with an added element of extreme urgency, given the fiscal crisis.

If it somehow seems that we have heard this before from Obama, it's because we have. Which raises the question: have we been seeing him too much?

My answer is no. We know where he stands and what he intends to do. Now voters can hold him to his promises.

    No se not seen to much of our President. It is great that he wants to keep us informed.He was great tonight. A very smart and humble man. We need to let him do his job, and stand wuth him. The more we stand in agreement, the more God will bless this nation. We may not agree on everything, but we can be agfeeable, and gyve him a chance to lead us. People need to get off the racial and party pot. I pray tha God willbless this addministraion abundantly and aboe ALL that we may think or ask.

  4. Scaring the crap out, works!

    Just like Bush terrifying everyone with Alqueda.
    Obama wants to scare everyone with this scarry crisis.
    Why? Because it gave Bush a free ticket to DO what ever he wants declare illegal wars spy into anyone's life.
    Well Obama's a quick study and if he scares everyone about this financial crisis it gives him a free ticket to SPEND whatever he wants.
    But when he keeps talking about this extreme urgency, he scares people right out of the market, the stores and the banks.
    Instead of sounding like Bush, just changing the word terrorist to financial crisis he needs to start sounding more like Regan.

    No Gloria, we haven't seen the "President" too much. We are only seeing him a small amount as the antidote to the poison injected directly to the life blood of this nation in the last eight years. For the whole cure stay tune, I hope we get to see him for the whole eight years of the necessary cure.

    Geez!

    First the media complains that we aren't getting enough "positive" rhetoric from Obama.

    Now they say they are getting too much.

    Or they are hearing from him too much.

    Quit your jobs, journalists, and let someone else (preferably younger) have them.
