19. No one should lie, of course...but let's not forget
Edited on Thu Nov-20-08 02:59 AM by JDwho
that Obama (throughout his campaign) has stated that he wants us all to come together, to end bipartisan hatred (let's face it, it's pretty true that we're divided beyond imagination), and to unite. I truly respect his decision to hire brilliant people who disagree with him. We all know that he will hire those who also think along the same line of thought he does, as well. But, in my eyes, although some of his views may be liberal, he is more evolved than just hearing one opinion and one voice. When I voted, despite my utter disdain for everything the repub party thinks, believes in, and says; I was and am truly inspired by his desire to bring the law makers of this country closer together. Hey, he convinced many republicans to vote against their own party. I say, recent history speaks to never underestimate the wisdom of President Obama. He's the smart guy in the room, remember? He sure doesn't deserve any disrespect. We elected him, knowing full well whom we elected, so for those who heard only what you wanted to hear and are complaining, just don't act as if you're disillusioned. Perhaps, those of you who do it, do it out of habit. We've been complaining a very long time. Time to stop and trust the man for whom you voted.

edit for my PS.

PS. Emmanuel was an excellent pick. He's a bulldog and will have Obama's back at every turn. In addition, never doubt that Obama will be calling the shots. I don't believe it's within him to allow someone else to do it, do you?
