    Destroying healthcare and financial industries AND the economy, while still getting in 41 rounds of golf the past year. Wow, Obama really is the Hacker in Chief!

    And the stock market plummets! Thanks Bozo for your latest piece of Socialism.

    The middle-class gets the brunt of your BS again!

    Enjoy your vacation. We look forward to watching you take
    full credit for stopping the Gulf Oil Leak while you and Shelly were roasting marshmallows together!

    Wall Street sure celebrated the passage of this bill. My 401 k won't be worth anything by the time Obama is gone.

    This will do nothing to prevent Freddie Mac and Fannie from crashing again, and with the bill put together by Barney Franks and Chris Dodd, the same flakes responsible for the last Freddie and Fannie debacle, Look out for a repeat.

    Will he be flanked by Barney Frank and Chris Dodd, 2 of the main architects of the cause of the economic meltdown, when he does it? It would make for a beautiful photo-op.

    No Fannie, no Freddie so no real reform at all! These Dimwits are pathetic!

    And he can write too. Or does he just make his mark,"666".

    The only thing Bill Clinton said that was correct and Barak Obama doesn't seem to get was "It's the economy, stupid."

    P.S. The word the other posters are trying to use is "Buffoon".

    Nam Vet – The policies you didn't wanted to change were the ones that failed to see the subprime bubble as it was, an economic bubble, aka baseless prosperity.
    I'd like to have some real prosperity, and unless you can come with a viable alternative...

    It is a good thing to finally have Wall Street reform. It is a bad thing that the republicans won so many concessions for the banks.

    Will he sign it staged with large Greek columns with dollar signs painted on them, dancing girls, free popcorn.

    Has to take the vacation first. Empty suit can't take too much pressure.

    Pity the people in the Gulf who are busy cleaning oil off their doorstep won't get a vacation this year.

    Yeah, "NAM VET" remember how many vacations your precious "George Bush" took during his term as president? Also, recall, how little "Bush" did in contrast with Obama. As for Americans having to pay for things: nothing is free. Who do you want to pay for it?

    Doubting it's necessity is an entirely invalid statement.
