The inauguration is only days away now and Obama will finally step into office and Terror happy Bush will finally be gone (thank God)

even though I am living in England and didn’t have a say on the vote I am actually quite excited about the inauguration and I followed the election fairly closely or as best I could anyway

and I know that Obama probably wasn’t the best choice for office and we all know who probably was and it weren’t the dynamic duo of McCain and Palin

Personally I don’t really like the idea of a government hence my username but I still I pray that Obama does a good job and prove to us all that we needed him instead of McCain


Good Luck Obama!!

Make us proud

After a month of him being in office, we will all know if he is this change guy everyone loves.. My view he going to be just like bush, a puppet for his corporate masters.. Dont hold your breath for change.

I must say that I agree with your post very nearly 100%, Anti-Gov! And I, too feel that Obama is going to need people's prayers and good wishes. He has a MOST difficult road ahead. The challenges this country faces are enormous and he's where the buck stops.

So, yes, Good Luck and ...

I want to wish him good luck but he scares me. He's too mysterious and shadey. I don't trust him; not that I trust any of the others but he's just become the most powerful man in the world and many don't even believe he's a US citizen! Wheather he is or not, he should have had enough respect to at least make some kind of public statement concerning the matter and his list of associates and friends that sre 'questionable' is through the roof! Plus I like our Republic and our constitution; I don't like socialism ...
Instead I will say Good Luck America!
We're gonna need it .

Well I for one dont expect anything to change that much, perhaps a bit for the worse if anything at first. But I also believe in giving fair chance to anyone, including to someone I did not vote for.

But after following politics and elections since Kennedy, and seeing all the promises and speeches mesh into the same thing across all the different polish**ers, I hold reservation, even if it was someone else going into office next week.

Lets see what develops after the first 3 months. It usually takes a little time after the transition to see any effect or begining effect of a new administration.

Take note..the facial expression on Obama during the campaign, and now before the inauguration. Its changed..hasnt it. He looks more worried, like as if he has been told something that is completely outside of the norm and wasnt expecting it. I dont think it has anything to do with going into office and facing all the problems...its something else.

Obama's rein as President will be the toughest and most crucial since the Civil War. Lets pray he has the wisdom of Abraham Lincoln and does what is best for the people of The United States Of America verses what is best for all the special interest groups.

Cut it out. Do you guys honestly think any president or elected official is trulyin it for the benefit of "We the People"?

I have no doubt that he is going to be used by those controlling who are lurking in the dark to manipulate circumstances in America for the worse. Not saying he's a bad guy. I just don't believe in our lame parties and their staged antics. These people should all be reciving residuals from SAG (screen actors guild) for their natural acting abilities.

Obama: Hey Joe, how many sucker fish can you catch with one lure

Joe Biden: I don't know. How many Barrack?

Obama: 67.3 million American SUCKERfish citizens. They
bought it hook line and sinker.

good luck indeed.
he'll need it from the negative energy that comes at him.
i pray for his safety everyday.

It surprises me how naive people are. Nothing is going to change. All this hype about Obama makes me uneasy actually. He's not any different than any other slimeball politician. "Change" is only a catch phrase meant to manipulate people, not much different than "terror" was huh?

Yep.. jfk comes to mind at this point..

they guy could mean what hes saying.. but someone may think hes oversteping a mark he should not cross

kinda twilight zone here lol

I just have a hard time believing that Obama had this planned for 20 years or whatever. If you know anything about his life choices, you know he chose to "help the people" instead of becoming a big-time constitutional lawyer making more money that he could handle. The choices he's made throughout his life point to a person who's genuine and means what he says.

Why do people feel and suggest that Obama's next four year are going to be the toughest times for America including the Civil War?

Whether I voted for him or not I really hope he does good, for I will personally benefit from that and I will suffer if he doesn’t. But to be really honest with you all, I think were we need to worry and which has been a total failure for like the last 20 years, no matter which party has the majority, is Congress.

Congress has failed on so many levels, and I don’t see this changing anytime soon, for they worry more about their job than curing America’s ills. I would rather see our congress voted into office on a onetime 6 year run. That way they would not need to worry about their popularity and whether they can please their voters.

Just think of how much work they would get done without the need to please voters over what is good for the country.

BTW, the rest of the world can kiss America's @ss, for we vote as we want to vote, and all those opinions from afar, such as “if America doesn’t pick Obama it proves America is racist etc”, and others along the lines of “the world wants Obama” have all played zero into what we as a people believe. This is from a person who did not vote for Obama, but now that he is my president I back him 100% as I did Bush. We the people voted, and we the people decided, so for better or worse, we the people will sleep in the bed that we made.

I honestly see nothing wrong with someone on the basis of skin color but do have a few gripes. I'm sick of people calling him black. This is only used as propoganda to further certain peoples agendas.

He's also half white.It we kept calling him White we would NEVER hear the end of it form civil rights groups and the black community. He shares 2 heritages and embraced them both for his benefit. He played 2 race cards.

What bothers me is that when I grew up, the black community had no respect for educated black men and were lableing them uncle toms and called them white (n-words). Now (because it benefits their race or furthers their agendas) he's a TRUE black man. This is the most hypocritical horse *snip* from the entire black race.

If you have a Mr. Softee double ice cream cone and one side is chocolate and the other vanilla, do you say I have a chocolate cone? My point exactly.

That aside, i don't care what colors he is and don't think the word of any polotician is worth anything. I don't dislike him for any reason and hope he is different and can do something but don't hold my breath in anticipation and hope I'm wrong.

I just don't like everyone's manipulative or misconceived statements regarding his status as black and am extremely offended everyone denies his white ethnicity.

I don't see people suggesting that. I see them saying that we have some really tough times ahead and that's true. The country and its people have virtually been ignored for many years now and it's showing wear. The economy is tanking, our people are hungry, homeless and without health care, the military is suffering and our reputation in the world is no longer that of the greatest nation in the world.

Could we please not make this a race thread??? PLEASE??? Could we stay on topic.
