LC Posted November 10, 2008 Share Posted November 10, 2008 I've been trying to get a word in on this memorable post... ...I'm not looking forward to an Obama presidency. Am I supposed to abandon my core beliefs because the guy won an election? Did you 8 years ago? No, you don't need to abandon your core beliefs, H65. You shouldn't, and I'd be disappointed if you did. But at the same time, you can make an effort to:* clear your mind of the propaganda that's helped make you a Bush Sympathizer and a McCain/Palin Supporter and open your mind to the possibilities that come with a new administration;* fight negative instincts toward our incoming president; * consider that maybe, just maybe, you aren't always right. It seems to me that the United States is hoping -- based on the popular and electoral votes -- to move AHEAD, beyond the eight years in which George W. Bush was our leader and president. Many of his decisions turned out to be not so good, to put it nicely. Perhaps you feel Bush is being unfairly blamed for all of the "issues" Americans are dealing with (especially the economy). But let's face it: He was the president, and the buck stops there. Unless he comes up with an incredible "Hail Mary" of a touchdown in his last two months, his legacy is iced, and it ain't good. If you step back and really think hard about the direction he took our great country, you might conclude that he was the wrong man for the job, and that he got away with murder, in a sense. It was time to move on. I don't see how you couldn't be at least a little bit excited about Obama's win. Rather, I'm still reading comments from you and your cohorts that Obama is going to crash and burn. I'm positive that negativity doesn't help anyone.
