that's what i am saying GS but let's digest all FTL's points.
energy policy. maybe it will change.. i hope so.
diplomacy: oh, i sure hope so but BO seems to be retracting some statements of diplomacy as of late so i am not holding my breath but i am sure we'll do much better then we have in the past 8y.
healthcare: maybe, maybe not.. i sure don't like HC's plan as it was going to make the poor even poorer.
compassionate imiigration: i think that's where the demos are really missing it.. imho, most americans DO NOT want any kind of rewards for criminal activities (illegal immigration). no freaking way, i say. i do agree with you that the ones who hire these illegals should pay big time.
as to the exec and legilative: the DEMO controlled legislative has rolled over for shrubco. they could have stopped it but nah, we'll just "stay the [freaking] course"
obama is not going to withdraw from iraq any time soon. if we do, i think it will be the biggest mistake ever. not all at once anyway and only if they can prop themselves up otherwie it's only gonna be more trouble. BO talks good but you know that it's shit, we're not leaving IRQ in the next couple of years.. we may draw down some but i don't see us having less then 100k boys/girls there.
demos (B Clinton) are the ones responsible for job flight outta here. who signed NAFTA and made the Chinks a favoured trading partner?????
in many ways prez' powers are really curbed too so neither him/her nor the congress can do shit alone.. they have to work together or work against. i have seen more cooperation in the congress in the last 2y then the other way around.
i am not holding my breath and i truly am amazed how BO has everyone snowed with nice catchy frases like "change." haven't seen him explain his definition yet. still waiting but unfortunately we'll have to define it the hard way by coughing up more taxes and dealing with more beaurcracy then ever before.
do i think the other two ary any better then BO? hell no. there.. we're so screwed.
