Is it 2012 yet?

I don't know about anyone else, but did Obama's Presidential Acceptance speech sound more like an Oscar speech? At least at the beginning, I was waiting for the orchestra to cut him off because he went overtime! But maybe I shouldn't even say anything, since Big Brother is now watching, and I am now a racist for not agreeing 150% in Obama's policy for "change". I dunno, being a small business owner makes me want to keep the money I earn, not spread it around. Hmmm. And I like babies, and I don't believe in or endorse infanticide (abortions "gone wrong"). And I kind of think that spending government money on "New Programs" won't get our country out of hock. And I think it's counterintuitive to pull out of a war -that we are WINNING- before it is finished. Just my two cents. What about you?

I cant believe it! Prop 8 better pass or I am just going to bust apart! I dont if chocolate can bring me back to life!

At least Prop 8 passed! However, I"m totally scared for our country. It's sad to me that Obama was elected merely because of the color of his skin and that's all anyone can talk about right now... I'm really not looking foward to working my butt off and giving my rewards to someone less deserving...

Yeah - You're right I was hoping to keep the same crappy policies we already had. That was working so well for us.

While everyone is entitled to their opinion and I can respect that as part of what makes this country great, I feel compelled to respond to one of your comments. Barack Obama was NOT, I repeat NOT, voted in as president of this great country because of his skin color. In fact, he made it a point to run his campaign without focusing on himself as a "black" presidential candidate but instead as the better presidential candidate ready to lead this great nation out of our troubled times.

That being said, it cannot be discounted that the fact that a black man was elected president is an historic moment that must be acknowledged. The fact that more than half of our great nation (many of whom are not black) were able to look beyond skin color and vote for the candidate that they believed in speaks volumes for how far this country has come and that is what makes me proud to be an American.

Regardless of President Obama's skin color- which, really should not matter- he does not represent my morals nor my thoughts regarding healthcare, abortion, gay marriage, etc. It is extremely disappointing that the world has chosen him merely for popularity. Yeah, the world. I will be praying for him and his decision-making process throughout his next 4-year term.

hear, hear Brooke! That's exactly how I feel! I've realized during this particular election that I have always been interested in politics, and letting my voice known. Though I personally did not vote for Obama and do not agree with his policies, I also feel that the Republicans in Washington have come very frighteningly far from the legacy that Ronald Reagan left behind. The poor man is more than likely turning over in his grave! I am nervous for these next four years, and not necessarily because of the economy. I have a feeling that despite all the eloquent speeches of 'coming together as citizens of the UNITED states', we will be led down a path of radical outreach programs and policies. And though I do not agree with Obama's policies AT ALL, I will support him as our president, until he puts one toe out of line! :) Not to say that mistakes will not be made, but the time for mistakes has come and gone. I'm waiting for him to come out of sheep's clothing.

FYI though, Barack Obama does not himself support gay marriage. Though he doesn't NOT support it, either (how that can be, I'm not so sure). He thinks it should be decided on a state level, not a federal level. Way to go on keeping us UNITED, right?

Easy now. That was quite a rant:) Come on folks, the color of his skin is what everyone else is talking about not him. Why shouldn't they, this was a historic election. Let's look at what happened here...democracy. People voting for who they want for whatever reason they want. Obama had a blanket campaign, CHANGE or didn't you notice? That means different things to different people. I know it's hard to accept but let us hope for better things. What politicans keep all of their promises anyway??? I feel bad for Obama the man. Who would want to be President right now with a country in such bad economical shape? He has a lot of work to do AND not to mention live up to the expectations his supporters have for him (like every other elected president). Even more so because of the RECORD turn out. He may not hold my personal belief system and I may not agree with his projected policies but we can pray and hope that he will surround himself with the right people.
