"CHANGE" ...good change or bad change..Obama didn't say.

It's usually what politicians DON'T tell us that fucks us up.

anybody know if Obama's change is for the better or for the worse?

I would say, Obama is like, the polar opposite of Bush. Take a look at Bush's "change".

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

Depends on which side of the change you are on.

Bush was not change, his was staus quo. war. Obama never claim to bring our boys home. in fact, he never talked about an exit strategy at all. hmmm...I guess we'll be at war for the next four years as well.

So again, what "change" is Obama talking about?

One thing I know that will change.... the power of the dollar. it ain't worth shit now. so that's one bad "change" coming

any other "changes" you people can point out? good or bad.

First, you might want to review what Obama has said about Iraq.

As for the power of the dollar, it has been in the shitter for the better part of this century [I like that line] so odds are it will be improving if the foundation economy improves.

Then there is that whole "cowboy diplomacy" thing. Flushing it is a very good change.

Oh, and yes, Bush WAS change. He changed American Economic Doctrine and he changed American Foreign Policy to a place it had not been in the 221 years of the Republic. That seems somewhat "changy" to me. Time to reset some of that.

For the worse, for sure. Plan on being enslaved and terrorized. Life as you know it is over. National anthem will now be a P Diddy song as well.

Nope. those aren't changes. the American Economic Doctrine has been run and will be run by the elite until the end of time. the Foreign Policy has always been the same. war for oil. Reagan, Bush Sr., Clinton, and Bush Jr. all went to war for position on oil. also, they all messed up healthcare. no changes.

so again I ask, what GOOD changes are coming with Obama in terms of Oil/Energy, healthcare etc....

McCain wouldn't have brought change either so no need to pigeohole me onto his side, because I not on his side.

Just curious to the "changes" Obama speaks of...because he never preached anything definite, all he did was ride the slogan of "Change".

a blind man can see that.

Let's face it, just admit you do not want to be ruled by a Black man. Bringing the Iraq fiasco served him no purpose on the campaign trail. He would not have gotten the support if he said the same thing as McGranny and Bush.

The man has not even sworn in, give him a chance. Anyone is better the mother fucker we have now, Don't you agree?

I will be the first one here bitching if Obama does not deliver.

Have you ever seen a candidate put out a list of what he/she will do if elected to office? Show me one!!

As soon as the candidate opens his/her mouth, the opponents will be on them like flies on shit. Apparently you have never run for any public office. Remember the old saying: "Less is more".
