Anyhow, bushCo will GO!!!!!!

I wonder how long it will be before some poor sour grape eating repub loser will say , "Clinton....""
Hyping a candidate up who has no proven track record does not sound too smart either.

He ain't the worst president so quit being so dramatic.

Who was worse - and why???

Only name that comes to mind for me is Nixon... but he was actually OK except for the Watergate fiasco that he orchestrated. Maybe Herbert Hoover for actively helping us into the Great Depression with his flawed fiscal policy.

Both Bushes were on the lowest approval lists of all presidents, along with Nixon, Carter and Truman. Interesting both Bushes made it.

I just don't see the Obama appeal, at least based on his campaign. My wish is that Government has its hand in as few aspects of our life as possible. Obama seems to want the opposite.
So you'd take W over Obama in a heartbeat, yet believe that Government should have its hand "in as few aspects of our life as possible." Patriot Act? Destroyed economy?

Wow. Denial is an amazing spectacle to watch. You remind me of my brother. You voted for W--probably twice--and by god, you're going to insist on the rightness of that come hell or high water--all evidence to the contrary. Black is white and up is down and bad is good. You probably like Palin, too.

I didn't say I thought W was great; I just said that I would prefer him over Obama.
It's not needed in the case of W. He is so blatantly and flagrantly incompetent, if not a downright jackass, that you have to be deaf, dumb, and blind to insist that he isn't. Like most uneducated people, you are ready to re-elect a complete idiot as President over someone whose credentials are far superior to his. No reasons, of course. But since when do the neo-con wingnuts engage in "reason"?

He has a "proven track record." He's been in governmental public service for 12 years, I believe. OH, but I forgot: He's black. Yeah, no "track record" of being white. That's true.

A new national poll says that three out of four Americans feel his departure is coming not a moment too soon.

What I want to know is.... 75%, is that all? I was guessing it would be more like 95%. Heck, maybe 99%.
Please note Tuborg's posts. 75% of Americans approve of Obama and his handling of the transition. Most likely, these are the same 75%.
