Fuel prices will drop over the next four to six months. The economy will recover significantly and the president will get to much credit for it just as the previous president got to much blame. The next 8 years will be very good for some but the entittlements will limit the good for the middle class and keep us in debt. The poor and lower middle class will feel betrayed by the president on healthcare but Obama will leave his second term with a stronger economy. At the end of the term historians hence forth will debate between George(W) the lesser, Warren G harding and Barack Obama as the worst American presidents. Harding still wins and Bush the lesser and Obama will be evenely split, the victims of the wrong man at the wrong time. If we could flip flop their terms we would all be better off.
