    Splendid!

    I thought he looked like mean Mr. Potter from "It's a Wonderful Life" in that wheelchair.

    Heh...I'd be laughing hysterically, if it didn't get so close to the truth. The man is scum.

    actually, i found another one that some people around here need to take to heart:

    "I did not vote for the man but today I stand behind him as my President. I am proud of his accomplishment, wowed by his ability to lead and I am willing to follow him. It is my hope that today marks a true beginning for all of us, and I am ready, willing and able to be led by this President. God Bless Barack Obama."

    It's nice to see that someone has enough faith to follow the person he didn't vote for.

    I voted for Obama and hope everyone feels this way, BUT I wonder if McCain had won if the liberals would be saying the same thing.

    I'm not a "total" liberal but I would have to say yes, I would. I would have given him the benefit of the doubt. His slate would be clean, just like Obama's is until I could see how good or bad he did his job.

    OK.

    I think I won't use Old Dick Cheater as an avatar. I'd like to see him fade into the sunset. I'm hoping he goes hunting a lot, with guys who are as good a shot as he is.

    The Daily Show did some great stuff about Cheney being in a wheelchair on the 1/20/09 show. It's online if you want to watch it.

    After the cluster frick that was the first Dubya election, I sucked it up and hoped for the best. He was a new president. Clean slate.

    2 election. no. I was dumbfounded that he was re-elected.

    Same here. I would be disappointed Obama lost, but supportive of my president.

    What I don't get are the ones who very much WANT Obama to fail and to be hated. And yes, I have heard that side of it too (and I'm not referring to Rush Limbaugh either).

    Ditto, though I admit I had a really ominous feeling about what might come after that "cluster frick". Unfortunately, that feeling was beyond confirmed. :disgust:

    I honestly don't know if I would have had *faith* in McCain if he'd won, but I believe I'd have had huge hope, an open mind, and a sense of fairness along with my fears. There were things I liked about him, they just didn't outweigh my serious doubts about the rest during the election. (I am speaking strictly about presidents, here, and not including VP choices. ;) )

    The entire time McCain ran I felt sorry that he didn't win the GOP nomination in 2000. I felt he made a lot of deals that went against his personal integrity in the name of securing the 2008 nomination.

    I had the WTF feeling in 2004 too, but it was more like a disappointment in the people that voted (and disappointment in a lackluster Democratic candidate) than lack of support for Bush.

    Not a chance in hell. They'd be saying the same thing that they have been saying about President Bush for the last 8 years...Not my president, etc., ad nauseum.

    Now when I say the same thing about Obama, I get called a racist or a bigot because there were things about him that I didn't like or trust...I had/have doubts about his judgment in certain areas, etc...

    This.



    It's kind of silly to contemplate whether an entire group would or would not behave a certain way [as in, "would liberals be as gracious", etc.].

    When we get honest, we all know that all sides have their share of extremists who will not budge an inch and are annoying and irrational. It's just human nature in some people, no matter the political stripe.

    Just incase anyone cares to know what Limbaugh actually said he said that he hoped the socialism would fail (if thats what Obama tries to change America into) not that Obama fails personal.

    No. there were other things you said that would make people form that opinion.

    Well, I mentioned Limbaugh indirectly. Even if he said he wanted Obama to fail, I would take it with a grain of salt because saying those kinds of things amount to him (Limbaugh) doing his job and continuing to broadcast his message to his listeners. Some of what he says is purely for shock factor and riling people up.

    The person I know said he hoped OBAMA would fail. The statement included the words "socialist pig" and that he hopes he (Obama) will be hated more than Bush. I consider him a friend but our political opinions are clearly polar opposites.I am also willing to bet this same person would be the first to raise his hand and claim to be a patriotic American.

    Anyway, that is the type of attitude that I don't understand. How can you want your president to fail? If McCain was elected I would be disappointed but I wouldn't wish any ill will on him as a leader. As much as I disagreed with Bush, I never wanted him to fail because I want my/our country to succeed. That's why the incredibly negative and hateful statements make no sense to me at all. Then in the very back of my mind, I wonder if some of these feelings are amplified because people can not believe a black man is in the white house. :(

    Exactly. This is why I spent the majority of his presidency peeking out between my fingers and hoping he didn't eff things up too bad.




    Oh well.
