Obama Struggles Under Failing Campaign Promises

Ad Feedback

From the latest deficit numbers to the lack of progress on Iran, President Barack Obama's problems are piling up and his poll numbers are sagging.
What his supporters expected to be a successful presidency, has now turned into material for comics.

The Federal budget deficit has tripled under President Obama hitting a record $1.4 trillion for 2009.

The dollar is weakening and some countries want to dump it as the world's reserve currency.

Unemployment is stuck at 10 percent and some economists expect it to go even higher.

Obama may not have been in office when these problems started, but he is also not solving them like he promised. Even NBC's comedy sketch show Saturday Night Live is making fun of him.

Afghanistan is indeed worse than when Obama became president. But the White House said pulling out is not an option, even if that is exactly what many on the left want him to do.

Iran has thumbed its nose at Obama's friendly approach, and is continuing its nuclear program.

Also, relations with Israel are bad as Obama is siding with the Palestinians on several issues and has only 4 percent of Israelis in a recent poll saying the American president is pro-Israel.

Obama needs to find some policy successes, before his presidency and his support sink even further.
