    Re: Obama President

    Well, glad to see the man i voted for in office.

    I don;t mind that he doesnt want to swear in on the bible. if he doesn't then so be it. to each his own.

    In all honesty, i voted for him because im sick of republicans. i feel that either candidate will do something very positive and very negative, so it all just depends on who i like as a person better.
    Why hello there!

    You know what man, don't be a sore ass. For someone who said to Arrianna that he argues with "common sense" and the "facts" you should don't have the class. (love air quotes btw). You could learn a thing or two from Senator McCain. lol I have a feeling that you want this man to fail, and you don't care whether it is good for the country or not.

    Well I just wanted to share the thoughts of people around me who do have interest in the big Obama thing. And let you know how some people overseas are thinking about the situation.
    And rightfully so. Like I have said before, the USA has slow a bit but we are still the motor of the car. Countries look to us for many things. And I can't say that I agree with what you said. With the news of Obama's decisive win last night the markets in EU and Asia all shot up to highs in recent weeks. However it did go back down after people do turn their attentions back to the real issues in the financial world.

    I also had people from other countries that I talked to that felt this is what the world needed. I still remember one of the news channel guys showing a poll in an overseas newspaper of what countries feel should be the next pres.

    Look, all I'm saying is to lay off the man. The guy haven't even stepped into the oval office yet. Give the guy a chance to do something first. Senator McCain didn't win and that's the fact, so let's move on. President Obama will surround himself with people that will help him.

    And here's one thing I'm going to say about the whole inexperience thing. Consider this, unless you were one of the former 43 presidents that led this country, no one has the right to say they have more experience than anyone. I mean just consider basketball, how many great college basketball coaches have went on to have success in the Pros?? One, Larry Brown. But why? The ball is the same? The hoop is still 10 feet off the ground?

    So let's just sit back and see what happens. We gave President Bush 2 term/chances, I think Presiden-elect Obama deserves at least one.

    How am I being a sore ass? I don't care if a Dem or a Rep gets into office, what I care about is their polocies, which you clearly have not payed any attention to the fact I have said that multiple times. He is the President now, or will be here shortly, I hope he doesnt screw things up, because if he does, we are the ones who suffer for it.
    Also, two things. I don't believe I have ever made any verbal insults such as name calling to you or any other person voting for Obama here. Which leads me to two. For some one who talks about "Having some class" you sure are a ungracfull winner.

In the last two years that has changed slightly but for the vast majority if the Congress voted it he either signed it or let it sit for the 10 days needed to become law.

    So now the question is can the current Congress turn around the mess they made? I sincerely doubt it. The Democrats say they can including Obama and I wish them all the best, they are going to need it.
    Failing to act is pretty much as bad as acting wrong in that position. Throughout both his presidential terms I've indeed gotten the feeling he never did much of anything decisive at all, yet the people behind him didn't sit still for a second. (Yes I'm looking at you in particular Mr Cheney. )

    Obama is going to have a hell of a time cleaning up the giant mess from the previous administration(s) and the general malaise the First World is in now. That's why I was glad to hear him personally admit that yes there would be decisions people wouldn't like and yes things would go wrong.

    To most non-Americans, he represents that (somewhat childish maybe?) attitude of getting things done simply because there are enough people believing that they can do it. He might not have the experience McCain has but only a fool would say that he isn't exactly the right man at the right time.

    That is their job though. They are supposed to represent their constituency and it the ones who voted them in want that and they don't do it then they have failed. It's called a difference of opinion Legend. If you have only one opinion you can be sure someone's is being suppressed since there is no such thing.

    He was pretty busy Hassun just not in the Legislature. Here:
    The Constitution succinctly defines presidential functions, powers, and responsibilities. The president’s chief duty is to make sure that the laws are faithfully executed, and this duty is performed through an elaborate system of executive agencies that includes cabinet-level departments. Presidents appoint all cabinet heads and most other high-ranking officials of the executive branch of the federal government. They also nominate all judges of the federal judiciary, including the members of the Supreme Court. Their appointments to executive and judicial posts must be approved by a majority of the Senate (one of the two chambers of Congress, the legislative branch of the federal government, the other being the House of Representatives). The Senate usually confirms these appointments, though it occasionally rejects a nominee to whom a majority of members have strong objections. The president is also the commander in chief of the country’s military and has unlimited authority to direct the movements of land, sea, and air forces. The president has the power to make treaties with foreign governments, though the Senate must approve such treaties by a two-thirds majority. Finally, the president has the power to approve or reject (veto) bills passed by Congress, though Congress can override the president’s veto by summoning a two-thirds majority in favour of the measure.
    The power of veto is one of the least of his duties. His failure to veto several bills did tick people off but the fact still remains he didn't write them or vote for them and trying to pass the buck won't change that.

    Re: Obama President

    Last night, Obama stated that he may not be able to fix the economy in one term. He said it would take more time than that to fix the mess of America. He already knows what he is up against and is being real and upfront about what he is going to do. He is not faking that he will have some magical time period to undo the damage to America. He knows it will take some time, it is a healing process. Hell, the great Depression took almost a decade to subside. Four years is just the surface.

    Scroug- that comment about you going to laugh your ass off is incredibly iggnorant. McCain didn't win, get the hell over it and move on. Weather you are republican or democrat, this man has made history and has put America in a good position with other nations. America FINALLY has some amount of respect. Don't ruin this this us.
