CHANGE!

HOPE!

CHANGE!

CLINTON (AND NOW BUSH) RETREADS!

ABC is reporting that Gates is staying at defense for at least a year .

Yes, I voted for McCain, but none of this really surprises me.

Obama is left wing in background and probably in sentiment. Yet his national security and economic team choices so far are ones I generally can support. Even Eric Holder, while he needs to answer a bit for the pardon issue, is someone I can support.

Then again, I am not Obama's base. There are going to be a lot of people who feel that Obama sold them a wagon of CHANGE! goods that are not being delivered. But then again, that does not surprise me either. Obama sold his coolness. He was in essence an empty slate on which lots of folks projected what they wanted. (He even admitted as such in one of his autobiographies).

My guy lost. The people I supported gave up on their principles and rightly lost the support and trust of the people. (To the point I no longer consider myself a Republican -- when the GOP loses people like me, you know they are in trouble). And if Obama is the socialist, why is George Bush the one nationalizing everything?

It is now Obama's turn.

I wish him luck and good will because my personal safety and prosperity rely on what that one man does. (It relies too much on one person in my philosophy, but that is another discussion for another day). I promise not to act like the unhinged left acted the last 4 years, though I reserve the right as an American to disagree with him responsibly and to chuckle at "change."

"Yes, I voted for McCain..."

Do you HAVE to keep on reminding me...?!?! (*CHUCKLE*) (*WINK*) (*SMIRK*) (*SNORT*)

"Even Eric Holder, while he needs to answer a bit for the pardon issue, is someone I can support."

Nope. Can't support Holder. He betrayed his professional ethics while at Justice under Clinton with regard to the last minute pardons - particularly Marc Rich's.

Gates? O.K. Even Clinton. I believe the President should have his or her choices quickly confirmed absent an issue like the Holder issue. One might reply that HRC was no doubt involved in the various pardon scandals too (especially with regard to the FALN pardons), but regardless, she was acting in her capacity as a private citizen at the time - not as a government employee under clear ethical guidelines.

"There are going to be a lot of people who feel that Obama sold them a wagon of CHANGE! goods that are not being delivered."

They'll swallow it - just as they swallowed all the lies told by Democrats campaigning to take over the House and Senate in '06 who when they actually did so went back on most (all...???) of their campaign promises. (*SHRUG*)

By and large the American People will accept ANYTHING. We're not the same People we were in the 18th century, 19th century, or throughout some piece of the 20th century. (*SHRUG*) It's over, Anthony. Raise your kids... raise 'em so that if and when the $hit hits the fan they'll be prepared to start new lives elsewhere.

(*SIGH*) No. I'm not kidding. I wish I were.

"My guy lost."

Your guy...? (*SNORT*) Com'on, Anthony... he was NEVER "our guy;" that's why he lost. (*SHRUG*)

"And if Obama is the socialist, why is George Bush the one nationalizing everything?"

I feel your pain. Again. It stinks to be right so often about so much. (*SIGH*)

"It is now Obama's turn. I wish him luck and good will because my personal safety and prosperity rely on what that one man does.

Well said. Agreed.
