Sounds like the 3 of you should join Herr Obama's 4th Reich.

He is already sidestepping the voice of the public by deciding today to "issue executive orders to reverse the Bush Administration's stance on stem cell research".

Interesting.

Hitler ignored those who might not agree with him, and then exterminated them. He started his rule by the same strokes of the pen, by sidestepping the established law and reversing policy adapted by Germany after WWI.

Beware the coming camps.

Obama may not be FDR or Lincoln. But he faces similar circumstances as they did coming into office. That's all they are saying. They aren't saying he's as good a leader as they were or anything like that.

The fuckin' Republicans, once again raped our country and destroyed our middle class. It's time for someone to stand up to the right wing Nazis in this country. All Republicans are racist pigs who only care about their money. Not to mention, all Republicans couldn't get laid if it cost them their life.

You're right, but I don't know about getting laid. The rest I agree with. These people almost totally destroyed this country, and I hope Obama can straighten things out. The war, greed, and spending have left us bankrupt. Good Riddance GW Bush.

You're right... I'm a racist because I don't like Obama?

Stop and smell what you're shoveling.

All I care about is my money? What money? I'm a poor man who has been bent over the barrel by a democratic house and senate for the last two years.

Can't get laid? "I've laid more pipe in this town than Wabasha Plumbing".

Put your pipe down at least until Obama legalizes the crap.

The lies? The lies? You are kidding, right? the lies, half-truths, double standards and hypocrisies swarming around the Obama campaign and his henchmen...the liberal media, democrats in Congress, and the Hollywood hacks...have suffocated this nation to the point that normally sane folks can no longer tell the difference in the truth and lies. As far as Fox News, Obama Mama, that is the only network one could hear the truth for the past eight years. Do you really believe CNN, MSNBC and the other left leaning goons cared about the truth during the campaigns. I, for one, intend to give Obama the same respect he and his kind gave my president. Figure that one out!!!!!!!!!

History shows that when a nation gets screwed up,inflation,unemployment,corr uption in government,and inflation ,the people seek out anybody who promises them relief.Often its a guy on a white horse.Under the guise of going to do the peoples business,they in fact take the peoples rights,and seek power..During the great depression,in Germany,a guy called Hitler told the people what they wanted to hear.If you recall FDR was president in 1932 for four terms,to 1945.If he did not die,he would have been president for as long as he wanted.George
Washington,our greatest president, on the other hand gave the job up.He could have been king.
Now Obama is here.Expectations are high. We will know in two years if he will be with us for two terms.It is events which shape a president,and not the man who who has easy answers.How he address not only domestic things ,but to include world things ,is a bit of a trip too far.Glad we have a two term limit now.In any event I wish him well,for in the end its our butts that is on the line.Remember all presidents are multi-millionaires.Not quite the common man.

Actually America has a really good record of picking the right president when things break, but a habit of picking really bad presidents when things are fixed.

I think the media is a real pain for America. It's like a narc yelling out loud, "Hey America! Here's what the president will be doing tomorrow!"

Maybe America shouldn't know everything. The only time we should know everything is during elections. Once we "fairly" choose our candidate then we can rest assured that the right candidate will act accordingly. But the media removes faith and trust from the equation.

They love to talk about negatives. They are sincerely trying to turn America into a living CSI drama.

We seriously need to be more involved without the help of media.

Obviously you are one of a minor few that think Bush was a good president. Obama plans to undo much of what Bush did to wreck our country. And a lot of disinformation was used to fool idiots like you into supporting Bush's actions.

The fact is that he let religious beliefs determine his actions. Stem Cell research is necessary. Gay rights is necessary. Climate control is necessary. Ridding our world of oil is necessary.

You need to wake up.

Obama lacks on important attribute shared by FDR and Lincoln...morality. With no moral foundation, he will not have a stomach for commitment to a righteous cause. Thus, he will fail himself and his country.

You seem to be the one bent into a knot about abortion, not us. As far as we're concerned, the abortion rights debate is over in politics, and we won.
