    Obama in part voted FOR the mess with BUSH's bailout!! Don't use the lame argument that he inherited a mess. 3 years ago everyone was high on the house market, NO one spoke ill about it and I'm sure Dems and Repubs alike were thinking that it was the greatest economy ever. States had surpluses.

    So the "mess" is recent and was supported by Obama too. You Democrats and Republicans need to realize that you are BOTH right...BOTH parties have messed up the country.

    Ed – think you could ask ONE hard question??

    Please ask Barry WHY he suspended his own ethics rules to get lobbyist William Lynn approved by the Senate??

    Broken Promises AT LEAST deserved to be acknowledged!

    Only one month in office and he has already managed to divide the country even further.

    So far President Obama has done more good in a month than Bush in a year, So many of the restrictive and stupid policies from BUSHCO have been removed.

    The messes all of us are facing took a while to happen, and will take a while to overcome, but so much has and is being done to make the necessary repairs.

    We are seeing criminals fleecing invertors of billions,under penthouse "arrest" and now another still walking around free, because of Bush's lame SEC not doing their job of overseeing and catching these things. But that will change too

    Obama's presidency will address these things, maybe not as fast as we want, but it will happen. Just give this team to do the work.

    Please stop generalizing by saying "The American people" have no confidence in this administration. There are still millions of Americans that have confidence in this administration. First you can not judge an administration in one month to turn things around that have been put in place for 8 years, even a 8 year old knows that. Why the rush to judgement President Obama. I have never seen such daily fixation on a president in my entire life of following politics. Media why can't you be unbiased and cover more stories on the millions that support and are encouraging and looking for ways to help the administration do well and not fail. One month is not an anniversary so why report it as an anniversary. I believe the American people, based on what has been handed to this administration after 8 years, will give the Obama adminstration at least 1-2 years to start turning things around, it may take longer than that based on what has been handed to them.

    Ed Henry is such a biased Republican it is hard to listen to him. Worthless reporter. Smirky face just like his past pres. CNN should get new reporters because what they have just don't cut it.

    30 days and already Obama is being judged by a bunch who should not have believed everything that they voted on without ever turning a page. Get real GOP, you had the ball and threw it away. Our turn.

    I appreciate the effort and consideration that President Obama is giving all these matters. I think that everyone should be more optimistic and stop being so negative. I wish the Republican congressmen would stop being so negative especially John McCain, he's kind of like the grim reaper. We should all thank God that we live in such a wonderful country and try to get along with our fellowmen
    and try to help each other. It shouldn't be "every man for himself"
    instead, it should be "do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

    Also, we need to have respect for President Obama. Where did the respect go. Even the news anchormen don't show proper respect.

    On November 5, 2008 (the day Obama was elected President) the Stock Market was at 9100.

    Today the dow is below 7500.

    Where's the HOPE??

    Fact is – Obama is an old-time democrat who thinks throwing taxpayer money at every problem is the answer.... JUST like the DC public school system! Highest spending-per-student in the country... worst performance in the country.

    No WONDER the market is tanking.

    Somebody throw a net over Gary before he gets hurt. Banging your head against all of those rumors have to be hurting by now.

    I've likened the GOP to the characters in the movie, Grumpy Old Men, ie never happy about anything which isn't of their initiate- I'm now convinced that they are the party of just plain Grumpy Old People. Senator Graham, and his ilk, is on record as going to be obstructionist (I guess that's the result of the "hope he fails" platform of the Republican Party- party first, country second).
    So pleased President Obama is going to the people (and mayors) to extend his offer bi-partisanship; obviously the GOP aren't interested.
    30 Days into his presidency, and take a look at the scoreboard; what was the scoreboard of the last administration. Is somewhat keeping score on this count, Joe?

    The man has been in office for one lousy month, give him a brake, he's done more good then Bush did in 8 years! Keep up the great work Mr. President.

    It is time for the American People to come together and stop whinning about the President not doing this and that. People this man is trying to make it right for us. How many times have you seen Bush out the White House except to visit his family and to his hide out at Camp David I believe. How many times have Bush even had the nerve to tell the American people what is going on and how he plan to fix it. Now what we should do is support this President and hope that he continue to help us get out of this slump we are in and stop fighting him for failure. He is a slogan of the Army, the President has done more for us in a few short days, like the Army (we do more for the country in the morning than we as people do all day). Everyone should take a break from beating up the President and help him by encouraging him to keep doing what he is doing to help us.

    I know this is asking a lot from our Media, but ask Obama one, tough, unscripted, surprise question and don't let him wander off into preppy-speak.

    Jennifer, dear, I think you have President Obama confused with GOP leadership. They're the only ones trying to divide with their "party first" mentality.
