    Obama is our President elect. Get over it already. Stop the petty bitching about his birth certificate and his grandmother. Stop the personal attacks

    He has enough REAL issues for us to discuss. His policies suck and we have him on tape advancing them.

    Give it a rest. Remember how much we have hated the petty bitching and moaning from the left for the last 8 years. Lets be better then those guys. Stick to facts and reality.

    Obama will be appointing people to positions, that gives us ammo. He will be advancing his plan for the Country, more ammo. Chose the effective High Road and avod the easy mudslinging low road.

    He is already side stepping promises. Attack him on THAT. Wait for the new Congress and point out all the bad decisions by the Democrats. In 2 years we can reclaim the Congress and in 4 we can put Obama out of office if he does all the idiotic things he has promised to do.

    Crying about a Birth Certificate that the State has already said is valid is a waste of time. Complaining because he did not do what you would do with the death of his Grandmother is PETTY.

    There are real issues to discuss. Though most we have to wait for him to actually start pushing them.

    Thank you. I agree. We need to work together the get US ouf of the mess we are in.:eusa_angel:

    The answer is not conservative or liberal alone. It lies somewhere in between. Moderates will someday rule.

    I will wait and see what he does before I applaud or attack. You may just be suprised and find he actually helps get us a little further back on the path we were founded on.

    None of us have a choice but to wait and see. You may be surprised at what he does. I hope not.

    I understand why, after the last 8 years, the Cons wouldn't trust what the President Elect has to say. I mean we've had someone in office who said one thing and did another. The skeptisim is well founded I'd say. It must be difficult to have been fooled all these years and some probably feel it's better to go in doubtful that way if things don't work out they can claim they knew it all along....like the Libs have been able to do with Bush.

    My question is, will the Conservatives admit it if Obama does a good job?

    I have to give you props for this RGS.

    I really don't think I, or any sane lefty, has ever attacked Bush on a highly personal level, like him not loving his daughters, wife, or grandparents. I think its mostly been confined to him being an appalling idiot on policy issues like Iraq, Katrina, the economy, and tax cuts for the rich. I think he is pretty dumb, and that might sound like a personal attack. But, I generally think that means he's not up to the job, and is not nearly in the same intellectual ball field as most of our presidents in history. I don't literally think he's as stupid as a kentucky hillbilly with a third grade education.

    I still think he looks like a chimpanzee. But, that's all in good fun. I think Obama with those huge ass ears, could be compared to dumbo the elephant and I wouldn't mind those kind of jokes.

    I plan on giving BHO the same presumption of innocence and level of respect that Liberals gave GWB. :eusa_whistle:
