If you voted for McCain, you have no right to complain now. If you voted for Obama, you have no right to complain now. The only people who have the right to complain are the ones who DID NOT vote. It is the people who DID NOT VOTE that refused to pick between the lesser of two evils because we already knew that by voting for the "lesser of two evils" you were still getting evil. Until a time comes when the system can be changed or people collectively stand up and say 'no more, our choices are not acceptable choices' we will continue to get more of the same crap we have been getting for decades.
People who don't vote are just the same as people who don't give a crap and won't stand up to change the system.
At least Obama voters, as suckered as they were, wanted to change things to something they felt was better.

I think it'd be awesome to have a president that can speak off the cuff without prepared statements or teleprompters. Obama not-with-standing. Just imagine Teddy Roosevelt addressing the nation in today's climate.
I just hate how everything today has to be scripted.
Deliver speeches without aid - speak to the nation from your heart and mind. Sincerity comes not from prepared speeches.
The fact that everything said must be screened by committees has always made my teeth itch.
I often wonder if reliance on prepared statements and teleprompters is in direct proportions to one's inability to lead.
Just pondering, is all....
