    You have your mandate to fix everything.

    Lets see how you do.





    Best of luck. In 2012 it will be interesting to hear you try to explain why things are still broken with a Democrat president and Congress.

    As a matter of fact, people are impatient. Lets see how you do in 2010 when the economy is still broken. You have told us you have all the answers, people believed you - now you have to fix it.

    At the end of the day it is the economy. People vote their pocketbooks. How many times have we seen this? When things are tough the guy who is in is always to blame. The US (and the world) is just at the start of its economic downturn.

    My only question is this - will people swalow the twaddle that "we are working on it, be patient with us?" I suspect that people are not as patient today and that change will be swift when the Democrats can't 'fix it.'

    'It's the economy, stupid' rings true now more than ever.

    Fix it Democrats, or else.

    No mystery there. They will blame it on George Bush and the Republicans - they inherited a mess too big to fix in 4 years. You can take that one to the bank. Being a Democrat means never having to say you're sorry, or that you were wrong.

    But we have an impatient populace. Will they swallow the line?

    Obama and Co. have sold themselves as the ones who have the means and the wisdom to fix it.

    The romance will wear off quickly. Obama's approval rating, after his honeymoon period, will nose dive.

    This is politics as usual.

    My response is the same as if McCain had won, pray they do a great job for the people of the United States. Party does not matter now, pray that both parties work for the good of the country.

    Considering we didn't get in the mess in two years, how do you expect it to be fixed that fast? Will you accept the country being on the road to recovery? If so then I think you'll be happy by 2010 and pleasantly surprised by 2012.

    The things I'm looking for he health care, health care, health care

    Jobs

    Programs to retool the country now that all the industry jobs have gone overseas.

    Development happening in alternative energies that don't pollute and doesn't put a nuclear bomb in my backyard.

    Yes, let's give it over the unions. They are experts at keeping jobs in the U.S. Let's copy the health care systems of our socialist brothers around the world (What a big success they are enjoying in health care). Let the government pay for our gas and our mortgage by stealing the money from the rich to pay and our pension plans for it.

    What's the point? Good luck democrats. You have the entire majority. Let's see how you do?

    Also, keep in mind a key issue: criticism of Obama will be met with the race card response from Obama's die-hard supporters (who will now be in positions of power).

    THat will silence much of the media, and many of Obama's critics.

    The question is...will that work long term? Only time will tell.

    Spot on


    Bush has left a mighty big mess and has not left the country better than he found it, he may end up being censored but protected from world courts. President Obama will need prayer for lots of best and brightest problem solving and I think that is the direction he will go.

    As for Bush he continues to break records as the worst President in our history with 20 percent approval and 72 dis approval.

    So it is fair to say Bush has caused such a mess it will take time to dig out of it.

    And just the day after the election the liberal socialists make their excuses as to why obama can not or will not fix the economy as he has promised too. real confident in your man aren't you.

    How true this is, New Labour (our version of the Democrats) are still blaming the previous Conservative government (our Republicans equivalent) for the failings of their policies, even though its been twelve years since we last had a Conservative government.

    also, one other thing: several Democratic constituencies will not vote Republican under any circumstances. So...once an area goes Democratic due to population shifts, it will stay there.

    So, it really doesn't matter if they deliver. Most of the democrat's voter base will vote that way no matter what. They'll buy whatever excuse is given.

    I'll have that sandwich without the baloney. I predict that in a few months many people will wish he was still in office. Yes, he disappointed me, but I won't have that problem with Obama because my expectations for him are far lower.

    I have said this until I am blue in the face, presidents have exactly 0 to do with the economy. The legislative branch legislates, and what they legislate does influence the economy. Clinton lucked out with the dot.com boom. Bush inherited the post-dot.com crash, as well as the failed mortgage lending and banking policies instituted prior to his taking office.

    Now with the democrats in control I expect things to get much worse. We are trying to get completely debt-free before the end of the year so that we can ride out the coming lean years, if the Lord should tarry.

    I heard it said this a.m. that the Republican voter turnout was the lowest in years, not sure where they got those "facts", though. If that is true, shame on those who gave up the fight.

    I disagree, I think the first precept Obama will overcome is the notion that he is a black president. I believe calling him a black president is part of the problem and not the solution and is the path by which the race card gets to the arena.

    Soon I hope we understand that he isn't a black president, he is the president who so happens to be black. Once we do that, we can put race in as a footnote begin seeing Obama for who he is, our leader.

    As there are Republican constituencies that will not vote Democratic under any circumstances.

    I will say, though, that the demographics are not favoring the Republicans in the long term. I think that this is the beginning of the end of the GOP. There will have to be a new party system, or the democrats will have almost unfettered control

    Health care will NOT change in this country. The insurance lobbyists are too strong in DC. And truthfully it is not a great option. I met a man in Scotland (which has universal healthcare) he was a fisherman by trade. He fell and broke his hip and had to wait for 18 months before having it replaced. He had to sell his boat and business because he could not get into his boat with a broken hip. How many Americans do you think is willing to wait 18 months for a desperately needed surgery? Not very many.
