    Check yours he needed 51% of the popular vote for a majority win and only received 52.5% so I rounded up to 3% the 1.3% went to the third party votes. Yes I know electoral college bull but he only received a very marginal majority vote

    It is still scary that 52% voted for him. Does not say much for the majority of our country.

    You should have said that. The way you said it, it would seem as if he beat McCain by 3 percentage points when in fact he beat him by 6. Also, it seems as if you're playing with the numbers to make it seem like he did worse than he really did. While the closeness of the victory isn't reflected in the Electoral College tally, the fact is that Obama is the first Democrat since Carter in 1976 to receive a popular vote majority.

    As to his promises, all the bull he said, he will try it and you can bet your next pay check on that one.

    As far as the liberals trashing the Bush admin., lets show them how much better we are by not stooping to their level. What do alot of us try to teach our children? Two wrongs don't make a right? I personally am gonna give the man a chance, IF he screws up royally than thats the time to complain and start going for the juglar.

    I did not vote for the man but the American people have spoken. Like it or not he is going to be the president. All we can do is pray that he up holds the constitution of this wonderful country. That is what makes this the best century in the world. Lets just hope that is one thing that is not changed.

    Easy answer less than you did last year and it will cost more... a card, some cloths, and a cupcake with a candle on it from the PX, now just watch our for the old lady with the Obama sticker on her car when you go home... Oh and if you buy that present for yourself with out telling your significant other first you will regret it...

    The scariest part is how many of the 52% that voted were fraudulent votes? If you can buy an election then our country is really in trouble.

    Obama's off to a good start. After claiming to bring the country together, he makes his chief of staff one of the most partisan people around. So we already see a beginning of what many have predicted.

    What you say isn't as important as what the other person hears
