[QUOTE=Winstonbiggs;2843412]The Bush Administration may well have been the worst bureaucratically managed Presidency in the history of this country. They destroyed the Justice department, the energy department did nothing, Treasury sat back and let the financial system go down the tube, The SEC failed, The education department, health and human services, Interior, FEMA have been run into the dirt all while spending outrageous amounts of money with nothing to show for it.
The outright failed in Afghanistan and have us bogged down in a war going on 7 years with nothing to show for it but dead and wounded while destabilizing Pakistan and turning it into a potential nuclear power and the next home for world terror.
I'm not a huge fan of Obama's, but if the way he has run his campaign is any indication of his management skills, he is head and shoulders more qualified to be President than Bush or McCain.
Elections come down to a choice and the public has overwhelmingly chosen Obama after a 2 year campaign. The idea that we donít really know this guy or he isnít qualified based on some theoretical candidate that wasnít an option is absurd.
I'm not a fan of Obama's tax policy but he is the President elect and while I disagree with him on tax policy I certainly hope he rebuilds the Justice Department, FEMA, the SEC, Treasury, Education, Energy, Defense and State back to prominence. We shouldn't have a place like Guantanamo Bay on our door step our more citizens warehoused in jail than any country in the world and we deserve to have rating agencies give it to us straight or be punished for perpetrating fraud.
While I don't believe in the political philosophy of the left anyone can see that Obama is bright and thoughtful and he won a convincing victory and deserves a chance to lead.[/QUOTE]
This is where I stand as well.
