    Not real happy with Obama - I think he sold out to the money behind the status quo within hours of giving the best presidential speech I've ever heard back in February..... that being said, I am still glad I voted for him, considering the choices on the ballot.

    Congress? Still a bunch of self-serving ass-holes who seem to get no greater pleasure than when they are playing the well-fed lap dog to the mercenary lobbyists who continue to write most of the rules we have to live by. They and the corporations they represent continue to disgust me. :mad:

    When are folks going to learn- never trust anything from Chicago.

    Except pizza.
    And hot dogs.
    Ok- the corned beef at Manny's Deli is decent.

    I had misgivings before he was elected and so far, he's turning out to be worse than even I thought he'd be. I knew that he'd be liberal and that he'd want to pay off his supporters with the national treasury, but I didn't expect the pettiness and to be honest, I didn't expect the cowardice he's showing. It was reported tonight that Obama had stated that he'd announce his decision on Afghanistan on or after November 7. It's one thing to not be certain of what needs to be done. It's completely another to let our troops twist in the wind because he's afraid that if he decides to send re-enforcements that Corzine will lose in New Jersey. It's truly pathetic.

    Far less misgivings now compared to before the election. His conduct in comparison to Palin's implosion and the Teahacker explosion, Barak looks just fine.

    Great question Annie.

    I was actually initially hopefull Obama would prove himself a more pragmatic politician in the mold of Clinton - and said so many times/

    Within a month or so, it was obvious he was in many ways, as radical as his most aggressive opponents had warned.

    I worry very much for the direction of the country, and the longer-term implications of having elected this unproven, untested, and to this point, utterly divisive president...

    Obama is doing a much better job so far than I thought he would be doing. I admire how much he's taking on at once and how hard he's fighting for it. I think we're looking at the makings of one of the greatest presidents of all time and I would love to know if there was anything more I could do to help.
