Congratulations to Mr Obama. My thoughts and prayers will be with you over the next 4 years that you will make decisions that will be in the best interest of the American people.

How's that?

Hopefully our 'friends' to the middle east will see it the same way.

Nova C mentioned..

People like to talk a big game, but has anyone ever actually left the country solely because their political party didn't win an election
Indirectly yes.. I was in Canada before the election of 2004 .. If John Kerry would have been elected, I was going to surrender my Green Card and find a way to move the last two members ( who are US Citizens ) up to Canada.. Fortunantly for my family, Bush won the election in 2004, although these last few years GWB has been nothing short of lack lustre.

Obama does not worry me much... I just hope he learned some lessons from JFK and Ronald Regan, as I fear we are going to have a test within the next year.. I hope I am wrong, but it seems likely we are going to have to be on the defense..

Please feel free to reach out and bash the crap out what I had to say.. As someone has pointed out in the past, my ability to articulate myself in words, is painfully weak, its a good thing I only have a Gr 9 education and some Trades school, or I might have taken that as a slap in the face insult when it was brought to my attention...

Oh well, what will be will be..

After Action Review..

Does anyone think McCain would have done much better if he had worked harder at throwing Bush under the bus so to speak? I feel bad (and that's not false actually) about the state of the Republican party after Bush.. I know there's a good chance that Republicans would've been angry about that if he had, but I think he really let Obama have his way with him on tying him to Bush.. And I actually don't see McCain that way at all.
I saw Steve Forbes talking about the party on the Daily show and he said something that struck me.. The Republican party has been "more into the patronage than the principles" lately.. I will admit that I think a true conservative bashing some of Bush's spending would have done much better this time.

AAR.... Your true grunt tom e..

What was the possible out come if Obama had Billary running with him?

What would the outcome have been if Sarah was not running with McCain?

Are we dealing with Demicans and Republicrats?

These are just my opinions..

1. I think Obama would've had a harder sell to those undecided voters with Hillary in tow. The Clintons are great with most Dems, but he was already going to have them IMO.

2. I think Palin was a bad choice, 'you betcha.' But this election feels like a referendum against Bush most of all. Even what people didn't like about Sarah-cuda was all the stuff that smacked of George W Bush.

3. Yeah in a way. The more evenly divided the country is, the more they have to appeal to those few in betweens.
