    It was interesting to hear Obama tell the massive crowds at his election victory party that the tasks ahead of "us" will not be easy. He went on to clarify that statement by telling the cheering masses that, "The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep. We may not get there in one year or even one term, but America - I have never been more hopeful than I am tonight that we will get there. I promise you - we as a people will get there."

    This sounded vaguely familiar to the words of President Bush when he told America that the war on terror would be long [I can't emphasize enough the word "long"], and that America needed to persevere. The crowd erupted into a rousing applause, but, after 6 years of war, the crowds that once embraced and supported going into Iraq grew weary, and tired quickly, only wanting to bring the troops home.

    Will this be the same deep chasm that Obama falls into as days become months, and months become years, and years add up with no end in sight to the economic crisis, the war in Afghanistan, and the inability of his administration to get that allusive health care program in place fro ALL Americans?

    Obama will learn, sooner than later, that Americans a peculiar and fickle people. The "gold boy" may find disenchanted Americans howling at the windows of the White House much sooner than he had envisioned.

    I agree, the excitement will die down and Obama will be out of the honeymoon stage with the nation.

    Having said that, the excitement didn't die on the war on terror. Bush is criticized for invading Iraq which has nothing to do with the war on terror. The taliban came to Iraq after we got there and ousted the government.

    You can "howl" at the "golden boy" right now if you like. It's going to be a free country again.

    We'll See....

    We'll see....as time moves on, your guy will hit the wall like a NAScar driver out of control. It happens to all of them. These guys make promises, and then discover it is much more difficult than they ever imagined. so, we'll see!:laugh:

    By the way, when did we become a nation that was other than free! If your "golden child" implements FOCA, and shuts down the conservative voice on radio , we'll see a nation that is NO longer free!!!!:tear:

    If the Obamanites get their way our country will be more controlled by Washington that ever before. Get ready for large doses of socialism! There'll be nothing "free" about that including the taxes to pay for it. I think the "golden boy" will break many - most all - of his promises but will find someone else to blame for it. We're already hearing that the economic problems are going to take a "long time" to fix. Obama's hair will turn gray as he messes up one thing after another. Hint: The government isn't going to fix the economy because it can't. The economy will be fixed if and when we stop skimming so much off our fruitful labors to feed the waste, corruption, and social re-engineering of our federal, state, and local governments. Government will be fixed if and when the greater part of it is shut down and the masses of civil servants take their "talents" into the private sector to produce of goods and services we need and can use. The less the politicians do - the better! If we can cut the sessions of Congress to a few days a year it would help. If we could eliminate most of the federal government's assorted departments and volumes of regulations we would be better off. If we could reduce the number of federal courts to one it would be good. If we could take the fifth man for every politician it would be as good as voting for the choices we've had. The tack record clearly shows how big of mess the politicians of every party can make.

    The democrats promised in 2006, that if they got control of the House and Senate that they would bring our troops home.
    We are at the end of 2008 and still we are in Iraq.
    All politicians say what the people want to hear just to get elected and Obama is no different and yet the American people continue to buy into the lies.
    Is it hope? or, is it willful ignorance?
    I believe that it is the latter.

    I don't recall the Dem's making this promise but bringing the troops home have to be done responsibly. My hopes is Obama will encourage the Iraqis to get serious about settling their differences to they can take control of their own country.

    As in all Marxist states the first thing BOoo will do is shut down all opposition media, particularly talk radio.

    Democrats have selective memory. I bet you don't remember
    1 Pelosi saying in 2006 she had a secret plan to lower gasoline prices, or
    2 Harry Reid saying the war was lost in 2007, or
    3 BOooo saying the surge would not work, or
    4 Dick Turbin, sorry Durbin, calling our troops Nazi, or
    5 John Kerry saying we were invading homes at night and killing innocent women and children, or
    6 BOooo saying we were bombing civilians in Afghanistan, or
    7 BOooo saying he would sign the Freedom of Choice Act [eliminates any restrictions on killing babies], or
    8 BOooo saying he would repeal the Defense of Marriage Act

    Baloney! The war in Iraq is part of the war on terrorism and the success continues to grow. In fact, by the time Obama get's his turn at he only stands to mess up the progress made there by applying his "change" formula to it. I'll bet he largely leaves it alone - except for talk - and then tries to take the credit for it! If he doesn't - if he messes with things - he'll just blame on Bush like all the rest of the gutless members of Congress who change sides with the wind.

    That's right! And those of you who have an unrealistic hope and some are a bit delusional (the lady who thinks she doesn't have to pay for gas or her mortgage now that Obama won, lol) are in for a rude awakening. But "mark my words"...lol you will blame President Bush for every failure that Obama WILL make.

    Our new president is not a "gold boy." He's a black man.

    For you and all the ones attacking my response, Bush sold us Iraq because of WMD. Iraq nothing to do with terrorism. You can say a lot of things about Saddam, he was in control and was the only one committing violence in Iraq.

    You're not being "attacked" but your response is being challenged because it's incorrect.

    Go back and read the Congressional resolution authorizing the war in Iraq for an extensive list of reasons why it was the right thing to do. There wasn't just one issue involved. There was a great deal of concensus on the actions we took.

    Iraq is a lot better place today thanks to our government's decision to take the leadership to enforce the UN resolutions on Iraq by removing Saddam. We can thank our military for its professional and steadfast efforts to make it happen and to transition to a peaceful government in Iraq since. Iraq security forces are now in the leadership role in many areas some wanted to write off as hopelessly lost a year or two ago.

    Keeo in mind that Saddam himself rattle his saber to say he had WMD, would use them, and refused to comply with the various UN inspection attempts to determine whether or not he did. He should have been straight up and opened the doors and he might have esacped the hangman's noose a while longer.

    This is not true. It is because of Bush's blunder in Iraq that brought the problems we have faced there. We should have left Iraq alone and concentrated on Afghanistan.

    We are concentrating on Afghanistan as well also considering other areas of importance.

    We've apparently done some things right because ... and let's hope it stays that way.
