I'm glad Barack Obama won the election. This is the kind of change we can believe in.
You don't know anything about this man.
He is one big mystery waiting to explode in everyone's face. I hope he is the best president ever because we are in a bad time period, especially financially. The question marks surrounding him show otherwise.
He is the most unknown man to ever become President. This is a bad thing people.
The thing that gets me ticked off is when people don't even have an interest in knowing Barack Obama's past. It's as if people just don't care if he is either a mass murder or a good citizen. They honestly don't care. They just want change, problem is change can be WORSE than what everyone thought. Change can put this country into another war. Change can make us ruin any chance of getting out of this Economic crisis. Change can "spread the wealth" to every middle class citizen in America which is going to casue a loss of jobs because big business will fire people due to their enormous taxes. Change of spreading the wealth can cause the same problems with Communism because any honest person will tell you it is basically the same thing.
Think people, think about what Barack Obama is really about. Is he really about all hugs and kisses, change this, change that? Or is he about the first black president ever with extreme influence and having a horrible association of friends? He can say or do anything and people will cling for support. He has a democratic congress that will do anything for him. Nancy Pelosi and company who has an 11% APPROVAL RATING. WORSE THAN GEORGE BUSH thank you very much Ms. Pelosi for your help.
Think twice about this man. And don't be afraid to look into his past and what he has done to get here.
Secondly, the congress issue is due to the state of the country. Not only with the hailing economy and the bailout, but the partisan ship. Nothing was getting done. It was both sides being stubborn and refusing to cross the aisle. They were all to blame. Pelosi doesn't have a whole lot to do with it. She really doesn't have that much power...
The great thing about Barack Obama is that he has gotten people to care. People WANT to do something, they want to contribute. They want an active role in government again. Thats the real success here. Democracy is a government for the people by the people and for far too long THE PEOPLE didn't care. They just went on with their lives thinking it didn't affect them. That is the beauty of Barack Obama, he has gotten people to want to make a difference, and to try to make that difference. He could be an AWFUL president and it would still be better than it was before, because people, you and me, will be out there trying to make a difference, trying to turn this country in the right direction.
the world has changed
