    i have a question...why in the world are you wishing obama does poorly....why? are you really that stupid to hope a sitting president does poorly? what kind of american wishes ill on his country to prove his party or whatever was right? do you really think of yourself as a proud american or simply a proud republican, conservative you can fill in the blank. if you are hoping obama does poorly then you are stupid and need to rethink your loyalities...we need a president to do well and take us out of our current situation....

    to the democrats....we are up to our ass in gators...quit trying to drain the swamp...how we got here is only for historicians to debate now...what is important is how we move forward...there are no past laurels to live on at this point....we need to unite and move forward with the goal of making this the greatest country we can.

    my point: we have 4 years of obama...let all hope for the best...lets unite behind the president and hope we can get beyond the current situation....so for all of those wishing obama does poorly...stop being stupid partisan ass and realize this country needs to unite and achieve goals that are not beyond us...unless our focus is elsewhere....

    so what is more important to you...being a proud republican, democrat or a proud american??? be honest ...can you put your party loyality behind and be a loyal american or will you just whine and bitch and hope for the worse and take glee in all the bad news about obama you can?

    Remind me how you demanded everyone unite behind Bush. When was the last time you called to task the liberal turds on this board attacking Bush and Cheney? Claiming they were not loyal Americans for disagreeing with Bush or the Republican Executive Branch?

    In fact as I recall YOU were one of the people having a fit that people WERE asking why Liberals were so disloyal. Claiming it was just honest disagreement. Now suddenly you want to claim someone disagreeing with the next President is disloyal. I wonder if you would be making this post if McCain were President and everyone was attacking him. Your track record tells me you would not have said a damn thing except some of your own attacks.

    So very true. From the most vehement Bush haters this is what they keep saying and writing. They are liars, for they are saying, "NOW! Do as I say, not as I did." Indeed, they do have 'laurels' they are now running from. They effectively did to Bush what they fear 'Conservatives' will now do, they know just how effective their constant barrage of venom has been.

    The dilemma for those that do care about our country, do we do as they did?

    i dont think you have seen me having a "fit" on here. the past 2 years have been election turmoil. i do not think you will find a post from me..wishing that bush did poorly...i always hope the best of the american president. it is that simple...

    I wonder if you would be making this post if McCain were President and everyone was attacking him. Your track record tells me you would not have said a damn thing except some of your own attacks.

    my track record tells you what? and yes i would post the same thread is McCain had been elected. perhaps you should re read my posts.

    I personally hope he does great, as I've said in the past. I just don't think it's going to happen.

    Bush showed himself to be an idiot right from the git-go.

    So it was hard to develop any kind enthusiasm for his policys or administration.

    I will give Obama the befifit of the doubt for maybe 90 days.

    What questions? They were rhetorical. I never attacked YOU, rather those making the argument that the choice is to support Obama or wish US harm. If you've read my posts since the election, you would know I have never been dancing about the coming failures, if they do materialize. I do not join in on the bashing, I do find the 'lack of change', at least through appointments and statements ironic so far. You don't?

    Posts as your original, of which there are now quite a few illuminate that many have used the last 8 years, consciously to undermine the President, thus the country. Now you want to pull back. I posit that you all will be luckier than you believe possible, since of the most part real Conservatives, not necessarily Republicans tend to believe in personal responsibility, making it pretty difficult to carry out the type of campaign waged against the administration for nearly a decade at obvious cost to the country.

    I never wished Bush did poorly. If he had been following my advice, he probably wouldn't have a 22% approval rating, and he probably wouldn't have led the nation over a cliff.

    I slammed him for making stupid policy choices. Invading Iraq - dumb, expensive, and bloody. Deregulating Wall Street? Idiotic. Embracing unfettered "free market" theology, with minimal oversight? Bad move, we've seen that movie before. If he had followed most of the advice from true liberals, we wouldn't be in nearly as much of a mess as were are now. This crap happened on his watch, and while its not 100% his fault, he has to shoulder much of the responsiblity for his appalling governance and failure to police and regulate the markets. That's an Executive responsibility. The President has to excersice leadership in those areas.

    Pointing out that I was right and Bush was wrong, is far from wishing ill on the country. I wish Bush would have listened to true liberals. And I think it is important to know how we got here. So we don't repeat the same mistakes again.

    I hope Obama pursues more sane policy choices, and is a more engaged and energetic leader. Who knows? I've always had my suspicions that Obama is a milquetoast centrist Democrat, who is not prone to making bold moves or progressive policy changes. I just hope he will be competent and mitigate the worst of the exessive "free market" theology exercised by Bush and his followers.
