Barack Obama has Fought for the Disadvantaged His Whole Life...Why would he Stop Now?
Edited on Fri Dec-05-08 08:11 PM by Bullet1987
I mean yea, I'm not pleased with some of the appointments either...but it is what it is. I'm not going to call the guy a backstabber weeks before he's even inaugurated. Some people on here just WANT to find something to complain and bitch about till no end. Obama was never going to fill his cabinet positions with nothing but liberals. If you thought that, you were setting yourself up for disappointment. I don't like the Hand-Me-Down Clinton look either, but I'm going to see how it works out first before I pass judgement. Let's not forget that Clinton was a very solid President. And a lot of the high-ranking Dems got their start under his administration. He's also one of the most respected political figures in the world. Obama is pulling from a pool that knows that they're doing. My biggest gripe against him were his trade policies...which I can tell you now, Obama is not going to radically change. But due to our economic situation, I'm holding out hope.

The point is, let the man be President for AT LEAST a year before you attack him like rabid dogs. You're not going to get anywhere by bitching on a liberal website anyway...so what's the point?

3. You know his stepfather had to stop him from giving money to beggars...
... when he was a child saying there was no way he could give money to ALL those who needed money. At least I think I have the story right.

Thank you Ann for all you did.
