In fact, other than control over the military and foreign policy, the president has little control over the economy, including commodity prices. If he did, things would have been smooth sailng to grease the skids for McCain. I can almost hear the refrain a few months or even a couple years from now when there are problems. It won't be Obamas fault, it will still be GWB fault. I like you Devil and admire your dedication to things political, but you really do need to lighten up with the drone of bashing the opposition party. It is tiring. You cherry pick the things you like that bolster your argument and ignore or dismiss things that argue against it including videos with the words coming out of Obamas mouth. You can't have it both ways.
Obama wasn't my choice for president. But now that it is a done deal, he's my president and I will support him until I think he is harming the country or working aginst my interests. We are all in this boat together and I certainly hope he will be a good president and leader. Many I speak to seem to think he is something special and will actually lead the country. I hope they are right.
Devil: this post was actually made in the NEW rules thread and was moved by the Mayor. I mention that because I made references that were responses to previous posts in that thread.
Coalkirk, You hit the nail right on the head! I'm with you 100%
