Wow! I too feel that Bush got a raw deal.
Nice to hear people defend him instead of bash him!

We all wish Obama the best and need to support him!

Sherri, I agree that we should support President Obama and hope that he can do something about the absolute mess that Bush and his supporters have created.

"Raw Deal"?? The American electorate got the raw deal. Bush and his hoard have run rough shod over our constitution and freedoms. Anyone who takes the time to get the facts will find that Bush and Cheney have set back our system of justice decades. I am angry that they were allowed to almost destroy our freedom and on many different levels. I am angry that their policies and secrecy have hidden the truth and diminished our country in the eyes of the world.

If all you get your "information" from is Fox News and Russ Limbo, them you do not hear the truth. It is time to clean house. It is time to stop the lies. George bush was more than embarrassment. he was a serious danger to our freedom and our country.

If all you do is get your information from the mainstream media ie.. NBC, ABC, CBS, or the wack jobs on MSNBC then you do not even need to tune into ultra left Air America or tax funded liberal drivel like NPR to have a left leaning outlook on the world.

As for Obama, I wish him the best as I do every POTUS that takes office. Having lived and worked in D.C. for years, I gave up long ago on thinking there is much difference in the two party's that are bought and paid for by lobbyist on K street. I would have to ask you what freedoms you feel you lost over the last 8yrs?? As for running rough shod over the constitution, President Bush treated the constitution with baby gloves during a time of war compared to FDR and Lincoln. Abraham Lincoln suspended Habeus Corpus, shut down hundreds of newspapers, arrested half the state of Maryland and other border states, arrested Federal judges etc. etc. FDR threw over 100k Japanese Americans in jail and also tens of thousands of German Americans in jail, sileneced opposition in the media and extended Presidential powers to levels never seen. Without blinking I could come up with a Presidential top ten list that ran "rough shod" over the constitution far worse then Bush.

As a fiscal conservative Libertarian, I blame Bush for squandering the largest tax revenues ever collected by the Federal Govt during his 8yrs, creating yet another entitlement program that adds to the $50 Trillion in unfunded entitlement debt our country has, allowing the govt to create yet another wasteful, redundant, worthless agency in Homeland Security, that will cost trillions before it is all said and done.

Obama has already promised to add to the $50 Trillion in unfunded entitlement debt our country has so it looks like he will not be the bold American leader that finally tells our citizens no you can't have everything you want and it is your responsibility to make your way through life not the Federal Govt job to wipe your butt from birth to grave.

I hope Obama has great success but after watching poltics for 30yrs I have my doubts that he will be any different then every other bought and paid for politician in Washington D.C.

OMG - EE, my friend said exacly the same thing. She was trying to figure out how the designer got his hands on her grandmothers favorite bedspread!! LOL!
I would hate to be any of the Obama ladies - that level of scrutiny on what you wear must be awful.

WOW,
This Thread has morphed a little. So President Obama better make a decision now, if the First Family is going to get a Portuguese Water Dog or a Labradoodle. Most 1st families already had their dogs by this time, What's the hold up? Just my 2 cents!

At least President Bush knows how many states there are.
Obama stated he had been to all 57 states. This just shows how far left the press leans. Remember how VP Dan Quayle was criticized for spelling, yet they let the 57 states comment slide. I know he is smarter than that.
Oh yea, there are 57 Muslin states.

*Anyone* who opts for a life in politics had better develop a very thick hide. If a Republican had worn that dress, you would have heard nothing but venom from the media. But now, since it is a new world, I guess chenille gowns are in! 😉

At first, I wanted Huklebee, then Clinton seemed a good choice (you get two for the price of one, couldn`t hurt).
Were just going to have to see how this doles out!
I`m in agreement with a post on st. thomas source:
America in Distress

http://www.onepaper.com/stthomasvi/?v=d&i=&s=Commentary:Open+Forum&p=1223614274

Before the president got in, I felt the same way.
I hope it`s not true, & all Americans & Virgin Islanders will do their best to help themselves & their country(instead of waiting for handouts).
It makes me remember another famous Democrats speech:
" ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country"

Were all in this together.

I managed to look old without being President. :X

LOL!!!

Actually it seems Obama's hair is now a touch grayer than before the campaign. In fact I don't recall any gray at all before he got started. must be me... so the process has started already. Michelle on the other hand, looks the same. So do Sasha and Malia!

😛

My wife actually noticed the same thing just a few days ago (Obama's new gray hair). It won't be too long until the presidential stress starts to work its magic as well. Regardless of our political affiliations, we all ought to wish our new President well and offer him our prayers.

You are money Off Island. Nailed it. And anyone taking ANYTHING the media says without a grain of salt the size of the Grand Canyon is extremely naive in my opinion. They even admit their own bias now as it was impossible to deny it any longer after this last presidential campaign. Talk about in the tank - sheez...they are ALL Jacques Cousteau wannabes.

Off Island, maybe everyone should get behind Ron Paul. He doesn't seem to be bought and paid for.
