When Bush won, how did the liberals get over it?
Mock assassination movie
Daily ridicule by the media
Yeah, we will get over it with our vote, our words, our voice.
And his actions.

im gonna have to agree with the OP. We voted him in. Many people still do like obama. I personally, dont think he has done anything YET to make me extremely worried... in the ways that presidents of the past have. I am not sure we will ever have a president again like lincoln, jfk, or clinton (who aside from his affair was a great president).. and we might just have to come to accept that. politicians have become more corrupt than ever, and lets not forget a lot of factors. Obama is trying to fix the completely EFFED up workings of bush... so lets not give him quite such a hard time.
I would like to see you go and fix the dumb@ss bush's work and see how you are able to do.
majority opinion? Which opinion would that be exactly?

What you see here is how it is done. Public opinion is supposed to guide the actions of our elected officials. When they disrespect the majority opinion and run off on their own agenda they deserve scorn.
He lied to get elected. That is called fraud. Although common in Politicians it does not make it any more right.
He said no Lobbyists in this Cabinet. His first appointment was a Lobbyist and he has since appointed many including the CEO of GE as Czar who just happens to control part of the media and who has a history of supplying goods to terrorists through the back door.

worse, you listen to some of this liberal propaganda crap fountains they call news shows and they STILL are on bush about things. the man isn't even in office anymore.
Don't ever think this criticism is a bad thing, it is what keeps us free. Throughout history whenever a people have allowed the Government to control speech or the Press it has lead to a Dictatorial Government. Are you aware that Obama has someone working on how to quiet his opponents? Pelosi has been working on it since before he took office. They want to control what goes out on Radio and TV. We have seen this before. Pick up a history book.
According to Congressional Record for 1917: "...the J.P. Morgan [banking] interests.... and their subsidiary organizations got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press of the US.... They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers. ...an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information...." Congressman Oscar Callaway statements included in the Congressional Record (vol. 54, February 9, 1917, p. 2947). www.crossroad.to...

Actually, you didn't vote for your president.
The elecotral college did. Since the public vote had nothing to do with it AT ALL, I would say that's a pretty mute argument.
People want a real president, not some lame duck two faced bureaucrat.

Americans really hate one another. We really don't want to solve our problems. That would require effort. It's much easier to criticize then to come up with solutions. I don't see this changing anytime soon.

I have a tidbit for you. Like I already said, if you do not like the way this country works, you should leave it or work through the proper channels to make change. Believing the president is merely a puppet qualifies. Do you like that? Do you live here? Are you doing something about it?
I am not sure we will ever have a president again like lincoln, jfk, or clinton (who aside from his affair was a great president)..
The article “The Safety Gap” written by Gardiner Harris, 11/2/2008
"This year, 18.2 million shipments of food, devices, cosmetics and drugs are expected to enter more than 300 U.S. ports; the FDA. had 454 investigators in 2007 — one and a half per port — to scrutinize them.."
“China’s leaped to one of the biggest suppliers of pharmaceutical ingredients in the world over the last decade [since WTO],...Over the past six years, the F.D.A. has managed to inspect annually an average of just 15 of the 714 Chinese drug plants that export to the United States. At its present pace, the FDA. would need more than 50 years to visit all Chinese plants. By contrast, the FDA. inspects domestic drug plants every 2.7 years ”
FDA's efforts to combat foodborne illness are hampered by staffing shortages, infrequent inspections and lax enforcement at fresh produce processing plants, according to congressional investigators. The Government Accountability Office (GAO) report also said only 1% of produce imported into the U.S. is inspected,...The report said inspections at produce-processing facilities are rare, and when problems are discovered, FDA relies on the industry to correct them without oversight or follow-up
