Barak Obama is an extremely intelligent and well educated man. During his campaign he has surrounded himself with smart, knowledgeable, experienced people -- hence his great campaign. There is no reason to believe he won't do the same thing as President. Bush's main problem was the idiots he listened to. A President can only be as good as his advisors.

And yes, even those of us who did not vote for him should hope he does well. We are the ones who suffer if he doesn't. Saying "I told you so" is a empty reward for chaos and collapse.

He definatly had a nervous look in his eyes last night like "Damn, now what the hell do I do next. Not even a year in the senate and I started campaigning for president. I hope they don't lynch me when I ********** thing up".

But the cool thing about him being president is, everthing that goes wrong for the next 4 years we can blame the Democrats.

This is exactly why Repuglicans have been rejected everywhere, and its more than this appalling ignorance you proudly display, its the mental illness that makes Repuglicans, and their faithful followers like you, kill and maim with reckless disregard and think somehow you are doing something good.

May an orange jumpsuit and federal prison await those leaving the White House

Actually, it WAS funny because it illustrates how childish and ignorant *a select few* McCain supporters have become on the DAY AFTER the election.

While McCain showed himself to be a man of respect at his speech conceding defeat and to try and be a part of the solution, others on this board are unable and/or unwilling to live up to his behavior

You have cried and complained, twisted the truth and now are promising the world will end because your candidate did not win.

Sorry you lost, but your posts are only showing this forum your true colors.

You are using a common Psychology 101 phenomenon called projection. You are projecting on to Obama your own emotions. Using the word lynch indicates your level of intelligence.

Then you go on to show you are looking forward to "blaming" the Democrats. You are a hater, and that is all you look forward to in the next four years.

You reminds me of the Christian Right. It's not Jesus that is the problem, it's his fan club.

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.
1507 days of trying to back down from what he had promissed and more blaming Bush for all the mistakes he will do....

Can someone point him saying this out in the transcripts to me?

I don't have the will to read through it - I skimmed through it but did not see this.
