    For the record...I am a Republican and what I am most disappointed is how the Republican Party has let me down in the past 16 years. I am embarrassed of the Bush administration, and how he has made this country worse off than with the Clinton administration.

    I would have voted for McCain had he picked a better VP candidate. His choice was a cave in to the far right, extreme conservative base that no longer represents the majority of the country.

    Maybe McCain/Palin represents a majority of this board, but how can you explain the shift in power from the Republican Party, to the Democratic Party? It’s not because we drank Kool-Aid or believe in his words, it’s because of the lack of success of the Republican Party and how it’s let us down. Have you looked at your IRA or 401k statements? Mine is down 35%. Obama didn’t have anything to do with that! My taxes didn’t go down either.

    For those who minimize my vote for Obama I am sorry. I have a college degree, and work hard every single day of my life. My family members are farmers, nurses, and mechanics who represent core america. I didn't drink any Obama Kool-Aid. My job is to manage almost $2billion dollars in cash and investments for a large maker of video games. My salary puts me above the Obama tax limit and I consider myself intelligent and well informed on the political topics. I have no issue about casting my vote for Barrack. He represents a new era for this country, and along with the shift in the Senate, shows how a previously polarized country made a statement of needed change.

    Look at the failures of the past eight years, and you have to wonder why Barrack won?

    Those who are saying that Barrack will be tested, or that you will lose your guns, or the country will fall into a black hole, why? It shows a rather low opinion of the US Government and the three divisions of power. For those who want him to be tested, what about the innocent people that would be hurt or killed in such a test? It’s not such an innocent or innocuous statement.

    You're right...I am going to move on, because I am a lucky man to have a great daughter and wife, and three awesome dogs. I come to this site for the great dog advice and hear about fellow dog owners.

    Great post...and well said.

    It's going to be a loooooong 4 years.PrecisionLabs,There is no law(yet) that says we have to hop on the Obama bandwagon and support him.I think it is in the countrys best interest to fight him all the way.I think the talk of unifying anybody is a waste of time when the first thing the liberals do is start telling conservative people what they are now supposed to believe in overnight.I really hope "your" President proves us all wrong but I doubt very much he will.

    nobody has said one thing that they will do to support the next presidency of their beloved country. pouting isn't going to do a damn thing. sitting back to teach the democrats a lesson isn't going to do a damn thing but make this country worse, which, as i see it is not patriotic and not indicative of a person who claims to love his country.
    So, all the nasty stuff and blame for everything from a bounced check, to failed mortgages, to global warming, that Bush was blamed for, all the Bush bad-mouthing, is NOT OK for if it pertains to Obama?

    I just know in my heart of hearts Obama is going to make a great president, and his wife such a gracious first lady. I got chills last night watching Oprah on Fox news when it was announced she was moving to D.C. to take a Cabinet position. They didn't say which one, just that she could afford to buy any position she wanted. I can't wait to see who else will be installed. I can't wait to see what other favors Obama backers will be calling in. Rock on Obama lovers!

    The Islamic terrorist, Hugo Chavez, Nic Putin, Castros, and the rest that would like to see the downfall of the once great USA are happy.

    maybe i need to just shut up, because obviously(based on my bush votes) my choice of candidate sucks. haha.

    and i'm not perfect. i have spewed negativity in the past. probably will again sometime. but what is, is. and it will only remain good here in this country or get better if we maintain our opinions respectfully and do our part to be unified by the unifier. not swim against the current because we are prideful.

    and, as expected, i will be picked apart here...much like joe the plumber by the libs....and the message will be lost. i will probably post a few more things, but won't continue a ton.

    bottom line, do what you want. it's your freedom as an american. say and believe what you want too.
    Classic. The author of some of the nastiest vitriol against Bush, McCain and Palin on this site during this politcal season (and that's sayin' something) now wants everybody to be "unified" and have "respectful opinions."
