The funny thing is when people from both sides don't get their way, everyone is the same. When Bush got re-elected, Democrats were all whining about how they were going to move to Canada. The truth is, that kind of thinking is amazingly counter-intuitive, especially if you are someone who claims to love this country so much. Like it or not, Obama is everyone's president for the next 4 years, at least.
If you don't like him, then spend the next 4 years constructively criticizing him and keeping tabs on everything he does that you don't like and why, get out of your house and take action. You can also make a list of all of your realistic fears of what will happen as a result of him being president, and check them off as they occur. If anything it'll give you some kind of validation, or maybe it'll give you a sense of calm that things won't go down as bad a road as you thought they would.
If you do like him, listen to him . . don't sit on your hands, don't rest on your laurels. Listen to his talk of sacrifices and a new call to service for all citizens. Figure out you can do and do it. That's one small (but collectively large) way we can milk this presidency for all it's worth, that's one way the true greatness of this presidency will be realized. For us Obama supporters who didn't support Bush, we've finally gotten what we want . . speaking for myself, I'm excited that I can once again be proud of our leadership, as it can only enhance the already strong love I have for this country.
I'm hereby done with all this bullsh*t because I now have nothing to complain about or defend. Democrats basically run the show now for the foreseeable future. There's some ugly crap in this thread alone, let alone this board as a whole . . it's just more proof that this crap isn't really worth anybody's time except for poor sad souls like Jimmy Leeds, Lou, unknown poster, and the rest of their ilk. Somebody call the Wahmbulance for them, because that's the only thing the save you now. It's saved us commie liberals for the last 8.
The end...time to talk hockey. Brodeur is out for the better part of the season, and we're talking politics? What's the matter with you people?
