As of 11:00 AM our time, we have a new president. Most of the world looks on in disbelief. The only way they ever get a new leader is when someone kills the old one.

America is different. Our nation is based in the belief that each of us is responsible to all. That God gave us enough brains to pick the right people to lead us.

So I ask you: will you give our new President a fair chance, or will you condemn him from day one no matter what he tries to do? Will you keep an open mind, or have Rush and Sean already closed it up for you?

May God bless and protect our new President.
And may God bless America!

WE ARE ALL AMERICAN!!! We all need to respect our new leader who is Our President of the United States of America. We need to give his new ideas a chance to change what is at hand right now. I did not vote or support the President, but that is my freedom to choose who I want to vote for. I am happy that we have a new leader, and I will not use my political party affiliation to knock President Obama down. I lost my vote, and I now support our new President. If his administration does not work, we can change it in four years. Let's give him a chance.

I don't have a problem with the new president. What I have a problem with is all the people that think their lives will magically change just because he is president. In reality it's business as usual. If you led a productive and responsible life before nothing should change. If you led an unproductive and irresponsible life before...there again nothing should change. Just remember JFK's own words....Ask not what your country can do for you...ask what you can do for your country.

Well said Jules.

It's a mistake to think that you can expect your situation to improve if you just sit on your duff and watch TV.

Hopefully, there will be an "equalization" of oppurtunity. That the child of a carpenter will have the same chance for an education as the child of a millionaire.

This MUST happen, if we are to keep pace with China and India. Two countries, almost two billion people, and it's the child who can make the grade that goes to college. Too often, in the USA, qualified students go to work after high school, because they can't afford the tuition.

Jules, don't let the ignorant ones dampen your chance to live a more prosperous life in this presidential term. those who foolishly believe that this president will bail them out while they sit idly by waiting for a handout will be the laughing stock of this nation. those who continue to work hard, take action, accountability and responsibility will reap benefits and rewards under this presidential tuteledge.

Which planet are you on? Each of us is responsible to all? When am I gonna see some black responsibility to themselves first, then to everyone else? And not living off the white race? And are the 25 million or so illegal aliens who have over burdened the American monetary system, stealing from each and every American citizen going to show financial responsibility to anyone? Or is Obama going to give them carte blanche as he has so far? Will you keep an open mind, or has Barack's skin color blinded you to his destruction of America? Are you condemning everyone who does not agree with Barack because you see him as black when he is actually more white than black?

To all Obama supporters that work. You will see how cool it is now when you get your next check and see first hand his CHANGE and movement FORWARD. You should have listened and paid closer attention. Now you're surprised??? We are in trouble. I hope your employer can still provide insurance and give Christmas bonus'. Among many many other things. God help us all cause we'll need Him more than ever to get through the next four years and beyond. How did we get ourselves into this... sure as heck not by my vote!!!!

It was reported yesterday that women made up 53% of the vote (in Nov., 2012 election). We had the deciding vote at the end of the day.

Women are up to 20 members in the senate. When women support each other, look what they can do!

You want world peace; vote for a woman!!!

We are women, hear us R-O-A-R!!!!

The 2% increase was from the tax cut Obama put in place two years ago; temporary. See, he kept his word - it was temporary!

As for you health insurance, what % did it increase? As much as in the past? Who is your insurance company?

You are welcome. He is doing a GREAT JOB for the 99%.

We keep going FORWARD!!!!!

Most people reading this DO NOT earn more than $400K ($450K) per year. So what is your point?(Keep in mind, in 2010, Obama offered $1/million and the GREEDY REPUBS in Congress said NO and did not create enough GOOD PAYING JOBS WITH BENEFITS!!!)

2% employee SS cut was temporary and the REPUBS DID NOT want to extend the cut; rather cut SS benefits (you know, your future). So you are saying you are in favor of giving the 1% MORE MONEY; more than they will spend their lives and their children's lives...?

TAXES WILL BE PAID. Either by working Americans with good jobs or tax the 1%(taxpayers create the jobs). Like blood, money needs to circulate for the economy to have that rosy glow!!!

Think about it!

ALL ABOARD? WE ARE MOVING FORWARD!!!!!

Keep in mind, 99% of women (98% Catholic) take birth control; do you call them murderers?

Are you saying its OK to kill after they are of legal age (military); but not when they are NOT born?

What exactly are you saying? You (like most Repubs) are NOT clear.

Not a moron; rather very intelligent.

Do you NOT realize that the bible was written by man?
How many of you regard the US laws as "the bible" of the land and live/worship them ? The bible was "the law" of early times.

You really don't sound religious, filthy mouth. If someone disagrees with you, and they are CORRECT, you start saying disgusting things. Why? Don't you have a brain or at least facts on your side. Seems NOT!
