    [quote=sackdance;2843064]Let me tell you something though, item #1 will of "change" will be more of the same - blame (prosecute) all things Bush. It's part of the left's playbook, from Lenin to Alinsky.[/quote]it's part of the playbook on both sides, friend. and it's clear to anyone that's even close to the center.

    So true the attacks on Obama as President elect will go on until he is in office and than it will just get louder. Let's see who he surrounds himself with for advise, appoints to his cabinet. The Republicans were harshly repudiated last night. I think they would be making a mistake to try and pigeon hole Obama before he takes office.

    For the next two years they should start working to elect some bright young talent who can make a positive case for Conservative economics in the next Congressional election. To go on the attack right now will ultimately be counter productive for the Republicans.

    Very nice posts WB. Your type of civility is exactly what the Republican party lacks right now.

    They need to mind their manners. The Dems are in, and are going to runthe show. If, in 4 years, the nation is doing well, the Dems will keep all their momentum, regardless of what the Republicans say or do. But, if after 4 years, things are worse, and the Republicans have some younger, fresher faces, they can take it back.

    [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 don’t really know this guy or he isn’t qualified based on some theoretical candidate that wasn’t 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]

    Excellent post.

    This is where I stand as well.

    Yes, really.

    From accusations of socialism and terrorism to the lack of class of the original post, it's an unending cycle of negativity, divisiveness, and fear mongering.

    Civility is exactly what your party needs to start heading in the right direction.

    Point of Fact 1: 63,052,005 people voted for Obama (and counting), more than any other presidential candidate in the history of the USA.

    Point of Fact 2: Only 1 time in the last 5 presidential elections have more people voted for the Republican candidate than the Democratic candidate.

    The "Dems" didn't vote Obama into the White House, America did. A broad spectrum of America did--crossing racial, ethic, religious, economic, and educational lines.

    McCain took for granted his appeal to independants and ran to the base, while Obama during his post-primary campaign sought to go to the center. While Obama was touting Warren Buffett as one of his economic advisors during this ongoing economic crisis, McCain hitched his star to Joe the Plumber.

    McCain's missteps and horribly run campaign made the choice easy for the majority of Americans who voted.

    So true. Obama should be under the same scrutiny that Bush has been under during his terms. This whole calling for civility and giving him a chance is B.S. He will be blamed for anything that doesn't go right...and rightfully so. EVERYTHING was Bush's fault according to the dems.

    So now its your turn Obama and the dems...you have everything in your control now...no excuses.

    So now when oil goes up...your fault. Economy continues to tank...your fault. Unemployment rising.....your fault. God forbid we get attacked again.....your fault.

    Have fun.

    Very fair, open minded post. Obama has the potential to be a great difference maker, not just another empty suit pol. Now we wait to see what we get. I'm guardedly optimictic and hopeful. And hey, it just ahs to be better than the past 8 years by default, so we got that goin' for us, which is nice.

    Turning into? They're the worst whiners anywhere. They're worse than Giants fans who don't get a pass interference call.
