    There are two things the next president needs to do....

    1. Develop alternative energy. We are in a state of national emergency. We are spending $700 billion dollars a year on foreign oil. We have to develop other sources of energy. The Danes already get 20% of their energy from wind power because their politicians were more forward thinking than ours. We have to do something soon, or we will become a third world country.

    2. Get us the f**k out of Iraq. We are burning billions of dollars each month on this hole in the desert. It's not our country! Bring the troops home ASAP.

    The guy who can do these two things the best is Obama. Another Republican will just be more of the same.

    What about fixing SS, Balancing the budget, fixing our broken education system.

    Just to name a few?

    Correct, but if we don't solve the immediately problems, the rest won't matter.

    To me Obama could be like FDR.

    Bringing hope to a beleaguered nation....

    FDR didn't bring hope. He brought results. Big difference.

    I agree, but then some of the results he brought then are the very things we are struggling to keep from pulling us under now. SS being a big one that comes to mind.
