We don't even know yet if he's going to satisfy Obama voters.

I do expect my over $1000 tax refund however. Why not make it $2000 and I'll be more satisfied.

First thing he can do is keep his anti-american friends and associates away from any policy meeting and decision making. Second, talk to the Iraqi government and US generals before making any decisions regarding US troops in Iraq. If he decides to bring US troops home, don't do it like in Vietnam in which they were returned home in defeat (defeated by Congress and the press) leaving millions to be slaughtered. We overthrew Saddam, we let Iraq elect their own government, Iraq set up their own military defense, and now they're ready to take over of their own land and in the sake of peace for the region we'll be removing all US troops from the middle east. Don't raise taxes. Work with your party majority to actually cut spending in Congress.

1. Stop feeding people, especially very poor people and minority people a fake utopia. Tell the harsh reality that we are in for VERY rough times!

2. Tell Black people while yes it is a great accomplishment for a black person to become president, he will expect more from the black community then ever before! While at the same time, giving them opotunities for them to prove THEMSELVES, not simply have the government do it for them

3. Stop making statements that indicate you will change or trash the consitution

4. See value and recognize there is a reason why the US is where it is today and respect the history that got us here

5. Appoint moderates to key positions, not just left-wingers

6. Really sincerely reach across that isle, even if he has to bite his pride. Do it anyhow

7. Change his mind about taxing the "evil" corporations and realize they do indeed provide jobs.

So many more, but I'll stop there
