88. Continuing the war on the ME for another year, or two, or more; NOT going after the bushies for
their many crimes; doing so much to indicate that he will continue the center-right policies of the Clinton/Bush administrations; and NOT giving liberals any glimpse of the corridors of power.

NOW, if in the first 100 days (that many have instructed us to wait and see) he shows that any of the garbage spewed by the pukes (about being the most liberal Senator in HISTORY) is true, I will come on here and effusively apologize to all.

Maybe he is rope-a-doping everyone into thinking he will govern from the right. But I don't think so. I believe that his values, as shown by policy statements and his nominees, are too far right for any real to be made. Sure, things may not deteriorate as quickly as they would have under McCain, but that is little comfort.

Put it this way. An immediate end to the wars and an immediate withdrawal is my preference. Anything less is a sell-out to the anti-war side. But many here would tell a mother whose daughter is killed in Iraq in December 2009 that things are going well because by the end of 2010, some more of the troops will be brought home. I would hold that that Mom would take little comfort in that "improvement."
