What Can Obama Hope to Achieve in the Last Three Years of His Presidency?

Let's assume that by January 2010 the Healthcare Mess is out of the way. It ended in a patients Bill of Rights (voluntary), in other words it ended in nothing. Cap and Trade, same thing, got tabled, never coming off the table, gone like a Hobo in the snowtime. OK, without bashing Obama, and while staying 100% positive, and walking on the Sunny Side of the Street, please tell me what you would like to see Obama do in the period from January 2010, till January 2013. This is a serious question. He's there in the Oval. He is the President for three more years. Your President, whether you voted for him or not. Here are some possible answers to consider: 1. Get all troops out of Irag 2. Get almost all troops out of Afghanistan 3. Spend the remainder of the Stimulus BIll money (about 80% left) very wisely. 4. Kick the i****************s out of USA, and keep more from pouring in. 5. Upgrade NSA, NRO, and Space Command so the USA can put fire and steel on the targets worldwide in future conflict without reliance on unreliable human intelligence sources. 6. Get those toxic mortgages off the Federal Reserve Balance sheet by finding a market for them. 7. Upgrade the nation's high speed rail lines like he promised to do 8. Upgrade the power distribution infrastructure -- the grid -- so it becomes smarter and more reliable. 9. Drill for more domestic oil and cut off reliance on moslem foreign suppliers. 10. Protect American jobs by not rewarding firms for sending them overseas. 11. Reduce drug use in US cities by strong and violent interdiction in the air and on the high seas until the price becomes prohibitive for most users. Just shoot down drug runners. 12. Set up Federal prizes for breakthrough discoveries that would set the USA on a brighter future economically -- like a great car battery, like a great solar panel, like a great fuel cell. These are just ideas -- it's your ideas I want. And no Obama bashing please. Forget blame. Forget ACORN. Forget Socialism. Forget incompetence. He's President for three more years. Don't tell me what he should not do. Tell me what you would like to see him do. What do you want? He's got to pick himself up, and dust himself off, and get back on the horse of state. We have got to help him. Sitting in the bleachers shouting catcalls doesn't say anything about him, but it speaks volumes about us. We are his team. Our job is to make him succeed if that is at all possible. OK Coach, call the play.

All the ideas you laid out are good,but will be the undoing of Obama, they are high lighted and hot. And will always be prone to heated disagreement, which make government look bad to the voter, except for number 12 which is cool... More

I think that Obama and his crew has got to stop pulling the race card. 40 years ago, I could see where the race card needed to be pulled. But now, no. The problems plaguing the administration have nothing, yes, NOTHING to do with race. It is his policies... More

I'd like the military Draft to be initiated. That way everyone's kids will have to go. THAT, I hope, will stop the wars and absurd military spending.
