Not only did he say this but his followers are saying this all over the internet. It's an obvious ploy to cover their butts for the inevitable. Interesting that they weren't saying it until hours after victory was first declared.

I thought we wanted change. If Obama is going to make one mistake after another, that seems like 4 more years of the same thing.
Hahaha! Ooh! Burn!

I was trying to tell alot of people the same thing. They let their emotions overpower their intellect and sound judgement. Now America will suffer.

I cannot believe how stupid people are to vote Obama for President. He has never done anything to prepare himself for President - NOTHING! He's never run a business, never been a mayor or governor. He gave a moving speech at the DNC in 2004 - that's all. STUPID

The world will test him...and test him hard. In fact, he will be tested before he even takes office. Watch and see. Keep an eye on Israel & Iran, Russia, Venezuela, North Korea, etc.

I hope the guy does well. We all should. It is us that will suffer if he doesn't. He did not give me any confidence at all with what he said. Between him and Biden saying we will be attacked within 6 months, I don't have a lot to be confident in. Let's hope he is a quick learner.
My God did he not think this was important information BEFORE he got elected? So he admits NOW after the fact that he has no experience? Greaaaaaaat!! And he thinks this is the time for "on the job training"? Forget about praying for his safety we better start praying for our own.

Yeah...he said that. But I think every President in history had some growing pains. Unfortunately for W while he was in the first 9 months of his presidency he was hit with 9/11....which set the tone for the next 7 years. It's been a rough ride.

Biden tried to tell everyone he wasn't ready to be President, but no one listened.

What really scares me is that Obama won because of two things: 1) black pride and 2) white guilt. Maybe he'll make a great POTUS. I sincerely hope he does. But this election was all about emotion, and that's dangerous.
