    He said a lot of great things that I agree with. One example was pushing for offshore drilling and nuclear power and another was having an open debate on all issues facing the legislative and executive branches of the government.

    Unfortunately for me personally I am having a very hard time believing that he will follow those words with actions. My problem stems from similar promises he made during the campaign (transparancy) that were broken during his first year.

    Thats it...thats all I have to say.

    Politicians say things. Like teenagers promising to be in by curfew. Doesn't mean shit.

    My concise take:

    When he's not lying, he is completely confused and over his head

    When all is said and done, more will be said than done. This is true no matter who is in power...

    He said a lot of things the Republicans should be pleased about.

    Same kinda talk got Bush elected a couple of times.

    He didn't mean any of it either.

    Yeah I know, but it excites the republicans when a republican says it.

    Yea it was kinda of strange for him to admit conservative ideas worked.

    Like when he was talking about tax cuts that allow people to keep more of their own money which in turn help the economy:


    Hmmm, isn't that the philosophy that liberals have been bashing for the last century? Your Messiah is admiting that those policies work.
