Obama still losing supporters and appointees

WASHINGTON (AP) - CNN medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta won’t be the next surgeon general, the Obama administration confirmed Thursday. Gupta, 39, a neurosurgeon with star appeal, was seen as President Barack Obama’s first pick for the job. He would have brought instant recognition to the office of surgeon general, a post that has lacked visibility since the days of C. Everett Koop during Ronald Reagan’s presidency.

At least on Wall Street, the honeymoon is over for President Barack Obama.

Polls still show the President has strong popularity among the general U.S. population, and Obama continues to command power in Congress. But among investors, fairly or unfairly, there is griping that the new Obama Administration is at least partly to blame for the recent slide in stocks. Since Nov. 4, Election Day, the broad Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index is off about 25 percent, and since Jan. 20, when Obama took office, the “500″ is down 15 percent.

DETROIT – Of all the words in General Motors Corp.’s 402-page annual report, none is more jarring than two written by the company’s auditors: “substantial doubt.”

The stories say it all. No upstanding citizen in his/her RIGHT mind wants to be associated with the debacle that IS the Obama administration.

And the last little blurb concerning General Motors, Obama and Company will just give them however many BILLIONS of OUR money it takes to keep on losing BILLIONS of OUR dollars.

Are you fed up yet?? How much more is it going to take for YOU to blow YOUR top regarding this travesty of a presidency?

    I’ve “been blown” since November 20th of last year. Billions of dollars and GM says “we’re going tits-up”? Hello? Anyone listening? Waste of my FUCKING MONEY??

    Hello? Anyone? Bueller?

    And TopGun is correct in this aspect: the word “BILLIONS” has now lost all meaning; it’s bandied about in a completely cavalier fashion.

    I keep pounding away on this stupidity.

    Save some money for the burial guys. We are going to need a very large casket.

    Who would want to join an administration that is on an express train to failure. The policies and philosophy’s of the Obama camp have set failure as the goal. The problem is that they are achieving it faster then we can wake the sleeping public.
