Subject: A Day of Celebration
I've been watching much of the Inauguration coverage. Today is truly a
day for celebration, not for politics. That will come another day.

Whatever you think of Obama's politics, or his agendas (if you even
really know what they are), his is a remarkable achievement. And an
achievement for the country as well -- not only our first black
President, but the son of -- not grandchild of or great-grandchild of,
but son of -- an immigrant.

I've found much of what he's done so far to be reassuring, that he seems
after all to be more pragmatist than ideologue, and may be able to move
us away from the demonizing, back-biting partisanship that's been
causing such bitterness.

There are some concerns that I have about him, of course, but they will
wait for another day.

Obama is my President. Our country faces some enormous challenges, at
home and abroad. It would be insane to hope for his failure.

Today, I say, "Hail to the Chief," and I wish him well.

I've always found it very interesting how quickly we can hand over our
freedoms and ability to think and choose freely to a "leader". This
is expecially evident in politics and religion. I, for one, will
never put all my faith in any president, governor, minister, priest,
police officer, etc. The old saying, "power corrupts, absolutely
power corrupts absolutely" rings true for a leader of a local church
as well as the leader of the free world...

"Somehow" get our troops out of Iraq? It's a forgone conclusion, that
Obama is going to inherit the credit for. The surge worked, and
things have improved drastically in almost every corner of Iraq. I
deal with the military personnel over there everyday in my day job, so
I'm not spewing propaganda I read on a chat board, or heard in the
press. Although not completely out of the woods yet, insurgent
attacks are down drastically, the daily lives of the population has
improved greatly, and the streets are nearly as safe for the
population as any of our inner-cities at this moment. All of the
combat troops will be pulled out soon, regardless of who the President
is. However, if Obama orders them out too quickly (I don't believe he
will), you could have a distaster that would have to be cleaned up
again, in short order...

I can understand why you didn't vote for him (because you're a racist
redneck), But I cannot fathom why you want this country to fail.

And this sub-prime mortgage crap? I can post another link if you

I agree. I didn't vote for him, and I'm obviously on the other side
of the political spectrum, however, the stakes are too high to wish
failure on him. I have been quite concerned at all the hype and the
ridiculously high expectations that are being placed on this man. I
watched a few of his speeches yesterday, and I think it's pretty
evident that he is worried about it as well. Too high of expectations
can turn extreme popularity into lack of respect and disapproval very
quickly, especially if there is a mistake early on... This can lead
to even weaker world oppinion, and could open us up to attacks, or
negative economic consequences if we're not careful...

Ellesmere Island is quite beautiful but the weather will probably be

Partisanship is the last hope against the relentless
growth of gov't... pray for gridlock...

Why is monopoly an awful thing, except when
perpetrated by politicians?


> Obama is my President.

barf

Is he YOUR Savior, King, Commander, Big Brother,
and plantation owner?

POTUS is chief executive of the executive branch.
Congress appropriates funds for programs,
his job is to implement them. That is all.

It is not any citizen's duty to 'support' him, obey
him, love him, or any such crap.

What does "turn things around" really mean? The idea that the
President has some sort of control board where he can "fix" the
economy is laughable. "The economy" is a fiction that covers millions
of individual transactions and situations. No President can control
it, which is a good thing. If he does things that are helpful, and I
am sure that he will try, it will be to his credit. If the economy
does turn around, he will look good for not having fucked it up.

If he can somehow get our troops out of Iraq and get Afghanistan
settled down, that would be a good start.

If he exiles Paul Popinjay to an island with Risky Biz and Chris
Robin, and Skillz, I will vote for him in a heartbeat.

I am completely caught in the middle with this whole thing. I didn't vote

and thought it was ok, but the problem i am really having with all of this
is the over importance that is being put on it at this point.

Look it IS historic and for those who read everyday you will know that I
had a few posts about how I would be proud (even though I had 100.00
riding on it) if the USA would vote for a man of color (I am not going to
refer to him as black because he is multiracial just like the rest of us
it just happens that his 'other' race is black) but his outer 'appearance'
is something the black community can rally around.

Anyway what I am reading/hearing are all these people who are praising
this man literally praising him. FUCK THAT! He is a man like the rest of
us. He is well educated, well spoken etc, but he is still just a man for
gods sake.

What I really do not want to happen is for people to put SOOO much into
him and have such high expectations that they can never be fulfilled.
Give the guy a chance to warm the seat up before you talk about how he is
going to change the country.

Our world view is strengthening which is awesome and I have to say most of
that seems to basically come from Bush leaving and our ability to vote a
'black man' into office. For THAT I am extremely grateful because our
popularity has not been good.

I want him to succeed like everyone else and I find it historic that he
was voted in, but nowhere near to this extent.

He is NOT the messiah, he is NOT immortal or without fault, he is just a
man. He is a man that needs and deserves our support and respect.

I wouldn't vote for Jesus Christ on ANY ticket. That guy was a psychotic
delusional nut who thought he was some supreme being. He should have been
in a nuthouse.

He'll still be a Democrat. Mike wouldn't vote for Jesus Christ
Himself if He was running on the Democratic ticket.

Jesus would never run as a Democrat. In fact, He doesn't even like you
guys.

If Obama does totally turn things around, would Irish and all the
other guys vote for him in 2012? If not, why? Wouldn't he have
demonstrated that his judgment and policies are superior to what you

Whether I will vote for him in 2012 depends on several things, the two
most important being:

1. What he's done as President -- the whole package, not just the economy.

2. Who is running against him.

I think there has to be some sort of certification by the Catholic church
that he isn't the anti-Christ first.

I don't like him, I don't trust him and I didn't vote for him. However, I
never want to see another terrorist attack on American soil and would love
to recover all of the money I've lost since the sub-prime mortgage disaster.
I don't believe Obama will be successful but, for the sake of this country,
I
truly hope I'm wrong.

He'll be mine too as soon as he shows his real birth certificate. Hell, even
if he was born in Kenya, if SCOTUS says he was natural born due to his
mother then he will be my President too. Not until though. The difference is
that with the true psychos here on RGP, like chris robin and risky jizz (and
no doubt many of the plain libtards such as bob t and orange,) they would
never proclaim such about President Bush, or Bush 41 or Reagan. They're
afraid it would fuck up their Commentair cards.

What's your take on Obama's oath today, pokertoker? I don't think they got
the wording exactly right. Have you consulted with Mr. Berg about this yet?

Well said, Joe Long. I know that you sit on the opposite side of the
