"This Jan. 20, we can partially ease an impossible burden on him by asking not what Obama can do for us; but what we can do for Obama."

Oh Yes yes, YES!
We need to do MORE!
Call Congressman John Olver's office and tell him you want your federal income taxes increased 15% higher, and that more money should be taken by government to help the poor, the downtrodden, abused mothers, and children scarred by poverty.
Call Smitty Pignatelli's office, too.
Tell the Smittster that Massachusetts should raise sales tax from 5% to 10% because we're just not doing enough to fight poverty and help the homeless.
Call your local Selectmen as well.
Tell them to raise property taxes 15% to help all those poor people who can't afford cable TV and High-Speed Internet Service.
We must do MORE!

Oh, and contact Gov. Deval Patrick's office and DEMAND that Mass Turnpike Tolls be INCREASED at least 35% to provide more jobs for unionized road construction crews, to provide more overtime police details on those job sites, and to provide salary increases for underpaid Turnpike executives.
We must do MORE for our fellow citizens, it's the least we can do to honor our great new president!

equating celebrating supporters of President elect Obama with apes? I'll bet you would deny that is racist, but what else would you call it? Oh wait, here's a few more descriptive words: hateful, spiteful, and being a sore loser. It's going to be a long 8 years for you, Mr Grinch. I revel in your unease.
Nope not apes

I respect conservatives and am willing to debate honestly on issues of importance. Racists are another matter - I despise them. You are one.
Yup sure OK

And what have you ever done for anyone or any cause? The last thing we need is to hear from a white racist from the most backward state in the Union. It really bothers you that a black man will be your president. You'll never accept that, and I love how miserable it makes you.

Who let you on this thread anyway - this is for educated people from the North.

Berkshire Bill, why do you insist on denigrating (in the most vicious fashion) anyone who questions Barack Obama's competence to be president?
Just because you decided to drink the Obama Kool-Aid and become one of the fellow's obedient cult followers doesn't mean all have lost their minds.

Because I won't let neo con losers who have tried to destroy this country over the past 8 years have a moment's peace now. Let's see who wins. Oops, I won. Have a nice day tomorrow gnashing your teeth.

What gnashing teeth?
It's entertaining as h.e.l.l. watching so many make absolute fools of themselves genuflecting to someone so patently phony and ridiculously out of his depth.
One wonders how long it will take Obama's enormous ego to catch up to the seriousness of his predicament.
He's going to have to start making real life-death decisions -- not the type he's ever been used to -- and will have to live with the consequences of those decisions for the rest of his life.

Hi Glenn,

I am going to be busy at my inauguration today but I wanted to take the time to say hello to my biggest fan. No one is obsessed with me more than you and it is quite flattering.
I am going to be around and in your face for at least four years so open up a six pack and enjoy the ride. I will make sure you don't lose that social security check

No, G.W. was out of his depth. He Ignored warnings that Al Qaeda was a danger, Ignored warnings that Bin Laden was determined to strike within the U.S. and we'veived with those consequencesfor eight years.
