1. Maybe Obama could visit a homeless shelter?
And put some faces on his economic policies.

2. Or place some kind of moratorium on foreclosures so the people on my block don't keep
losing their homes?

3. This
policy

The carefully targeted investments in the Budget will enable HUD programs to:

  • House over 2.3 million families in public and assisted housing (over 58% elderly or disabled);

  • Provide voucher assistance to 78,000 additional families (over 47% elderly or disabled);

  • Assist nearly 5.5 million households, over 200,000 more than at the end of fiscal year 2009.

  • More than double the annual rate at which HUD assistance creates new permanent supportive housing for the homeless;

  • Create and retain over 112,000 jobs through the Departments housing and economic development investments in communities across the country.
<...>

The Budget reflects a strong administration commitment to preventing and ending homelessness. To support implementation of the Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing (HEARTH) Act signed into law last year by President Obama, the Budget proposes a nearly $200 million increase in homeless assistance funding compared to fiscal year 2010 to increase investment in evidence-based practices, support the shift of local homeless assistance systems to a performance-based orientation, and to better meet the unique needs of rural communities. These investments in prevention will create long term savings in the costs of caring for the homeless. HUD has requested $2.055 billion for Homeless Assistance Grants in its FY2011 budget. $107 million of the new funding would focus on providing up to 10,000 new units of permanent housing for homeless families and individuals and implementing a new rural homelessness program.

<...>



Or this one?

4. Let's see...You can please some of the people, all of the time...
Great set of photos. All we get from the MSM is doom and gloom as to Obama's accomplishments. And, the first comments here just ask for more. Maybe thoughts of a President Palin will bring a bit more respect for Obama's strengths.

8. Are you kidding me ?
A President Palin is just what some of these people need. Imagine the amount of time and opportunity they'd have to bitch and wail....if they hadn't been arrested yet. :evilfrown:

11. Anyone notice?
Not a single infant or child was crying out of fear in any of those pics. Such a contrast to the reaction the scary man who stole the office for 8 years got from the young and innocent. Children just know.

23. Of which president do you speak?
I'm assuming it's Obama, and I missed the only ONE. If it is Bush, then you missed a whole slew of them (not to mention disgruntled animals). Lol

14. The child on the far left of the photo...
.... being held by his mother (I presume.) ..... the little boy is mixed.

The mother was probably told, as I was often told, that you shouldn't date outside of your race "because you have to think of how the children will be treated."

Well ... one of those children was elected President of the United States.

The only thing sweeter than revenge is redemption. ;-)

16. That's so weird, I didn't even notice. Interracial marriage/dating is so...
commonplace in my family, I didn't even notice. I have the most gorgeous nieces and nephews you've ever clapped eyes on (I'm a little prejudiced). Black/Hispanic, Black/Native American, Black/Caucasian, etc. We are the Rainbow Coalition. :rofl:

But she should know the blackberry is not so boorish that it would even think that.

just look at some of those faces when they see him.

This is the President we know, not the corporate shill that the fucking whingers see him as. The whining Mary Maitlin types who are Never Happy Campers, moan, piss, piss, moan.

the people that speak like this one does:
