The Audacity of Help: Obama's Economic Plan and the Remaking of America

Who wins and who loses in the Obama economic plan? "The Audacity of Help: Obama's Economic Plan and the Remaking of America" is the FIRST book to do a comprehensive analysis of his economic agenda. Find out which jobs will be in demand under Obamanomics and his stated (and unstated) goals for small business, green power, housing, banking, consumer credit, Social Security, Medicare and more. There is not another book on the market like this one that will tell you how you can profit and how Obamanomics will impact your life.

Yes but to do all that stuff he has to continually contend with the right wing who will do nothing to help. . Rather remarkable after the shouting and yelling they did when those of us who were against the Iraq war in the beginning -- and I think there was about 10 percent of us, were called traitors and terrorists. These same fools now think it's somehow patriotic to do all they can to see to that he fails, they blame him for 30 years of deregulation and 8 years of an administration that had absolutely no clue about financial policy, domestic policy or warfare other than 'shock and awe" and expect the other side to roll over. I'm not happy with the Bush policies he's adopting and I'm really not happy he's probably going to be talked into radically expanding AfPak by the military for their forever war dreams. But economically he's slowly but surely improving things. I love hearing the right say the "useless stimulus" or the "failed stimulus. Where I live it's not a failure, there've been a lot of blue collar and construction workers with jobs all summer that would've been laid off without it. For wars the Repubs will spend until they drop - for UE, health care reform, financial regulations, they drag their feet and hope that's going to win them votes. And it's true they seem to have picked up every tinfoil hat wearer in the country. I think Obama is going to end up doing a very good job because he's very smart, learns from his mistakes and isn't too proud to pretend he doesn't make any. I haven't read this book but plan to after John's review. but I just wonder how much of a chance the Blue Dogs and Repubs are going to give him to implement the change that a majority of us voted for him to do. And no, I did not expect it to happen overnight. We are still in a world of hurt and a year ago it was proably much worse than they let on. I just wish the deregulation greedmonsters and free market capitalist droolers decide to move south to be with their lunatic friends, secede and let the rest of us get on with it.

Speaking of shameless self-promotion.A Tale of Two Brothers

I've just finished a book (available on Kindle and at our publish-on-demand webstite " " ) called "A Tale of Two Brothers: The Keith Kakugawa Story" that explains a lot about why Obama's actions and attitudes are so hard for some people to understand.

This book chronicles the life of "Ray" from "Dreams From My Father" and describes Obama's easliest interaction with race and with leadership. Among other things, it identifies the day that Barry decided he was going to be the first Popolo President of the United States. The book also chronicles the Hell that Obama's campaign put "Ray" through during the election. The book is about Keith, but Barry shows up at three critical points in his life; all three of which change the courses of their lives.

Why don't you read something about how Obama's actions kept us from sliding into another Great Depression. When the economy collapsed around Herbert Hoover, he quit spending and tried to balance the budget and you can see how that worked.

Hit it Lily says:
Ummmm this statement is really inaccurate. And trying to convince the country that he can provide free health care and not incur debt is a joke, and a LIE. People need to wake up and realize that he will say anything to get his agenda passed--just like all his promises when he was running for office.

And the only media that will do their job calling him out is the WSJ and Fox News.

God, I am SO sick of Obama-haters.

I guess you think the eight years under Bush were wonderful.

A lot of racism, I believe, in the anti-Obama whining.

Oh, please -

Faux Noise and the Rupert Murdoch-owed WSJ do nothing but spew right wing propaganda.

Obama is our Affirmative Action president. I don't think he even realizes how beautifully he contradicts himself. I was so impressed, ....for so short a time. And I don't believe he was born here. How tough to produce a birth certificate...I bet you have yours.

Uh oh, looks like a birther has reared it's ignorant head.

Seriously, you need to rethink your loyalty to the Obama administration. Jimmy Carter is no longer the worst President of the 20th and 21st century.
I was hopeful about Obama and I couldn't support McCain anyway, so it was going to be good. Then we saw the troop of folks he brought in with him, the speeches became divisive and full of contempt for group A over group B, no budgetary control at all, and the single biggest thing he was to do - health care - he turned over to Pelosi, Reid and lobbyists to write. Obama is a very poor leader and has shown that he really doesn't want to be President of all the people. It's some kind of shakedown, money-grab for his guys, thing now. Very sad. I will not support him at all.
Virtually everything you say about Obama is incorrect. Above all, he does not learn from his mistakes and he keeps on thinking he can make us better by making us hate each other???

Baldue says:
Tarp, as abhorrent as it was to Republicans, kept us from a depression, and largely was repaid with interest. But, that was supported by both McCain and Obama and signed into law by Bush. The stimulus Obama signed and out into place was totally ineffective in anything but securing some slush funds for pet projects of the day. Pelosi got that critical grant to upgrade the cabinets at the rat study place in San Francisco.
As far as Hoover, you omitted the part about the depression continuing, and continuing, after FDR had all that control. Hoover wasn't a good leader, like Obama, but he did as well or better than FDR in ending the depression since neither of them did. What FDR had was charism and he knew the country needed leadership and he was an outstanding leader - and for that all of America felt better even if the economic recovery was agonizing.
As for quitting spending, we could use some of that. Have you checked the debt levels lately? Unless you are in the 49% that do not pay fed income tax, that should have you very, very concerned - or at least your grandchildren should be.

Baldue says:
I'm a lifelong democrat and was a small part of the civil rights movement of the 60s and I didn't like Bush, but you are a fool for labeling Obama criticism with racism. Unfortunately, real racism gets ignored when fools shout it every time someone doesn't agree with them.
Obama has been a very, very poor leader of our country and it's got nothing to do with race. I think he had good ideas and I think he is smart, but I also think he's shown he's more suited to activism and he's not suited at all to leading and managing the executive branch.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 9, 2012, 5:25:43 PM PDT
Baldue - my sentiments exactly. Obama was the flavor of the month when the thought of Hillary and all that meant again was too much to bear. As an Indepndent, the bloom was off the rose pretty quickly once he took office. In hindsight, Hillary would have surely been much better for the country. I can't believe I feel that way,but I do. Whoever said Jimmy Carter is no longer the worst president has it right. No racism here - just fact, plain and simple!
