You just likened Obama to Hitler. You are an insane person.

Well, I understand why the markets might have initially like McCain better - CEOs would be prepared to be all fat and happy and rolling in their millions. But when there is no one in a financial position in the middle class to BUY good and services, what then?

The markets will come around. Obama is going to be a good thing. I understand you don't buy that, but what would it HURT to give him the benefit of the doubt? You have the choice to either stew in your own bile and be hateful or open yourself to the possibility that this COULD be a good thing.

yeah, 52% but you leave out mccain's number which is 46% - that's REALLY not too close.

Um, no. In the beginning, i gave Bush a chance. But we have had 8 YEARS of that idiot. We have a right to make the informed statement that he is a grade-A Screw up. Obama hasn't even taken office yet and you're just rigidly against him no matter what! That's just nonsensical.

He compared Obama's oratory skills to Hitler. While the comparison is obviously flawed (Hitler didn't need a telepromptor), he wasn't comparing their social or foreign policies (many of which are remarkably similar).

Oh so now YOU'RE comparing him to Hitler? What the hell is wrong with you people? Look at Bush - if you have draw ANY likeness between an American President and Hitler, (which is ridiculous in ANY case) I think he'd be first in line.
