    Thank you. If at anytime you think I am angry ask and I will let you know I am not.


    This is a debate forum and I am who I am. I am a little more gruff than your average Chicagoan being from the great city of NY and living in the surrounding NJ area.

    This inability to accept that the opposition won, and will govern for at least 4 years, seems to be a failing of the American experiment in democracy. If the party that lost the election is actively working toward the failure of the new administration, how can they be trusted for counsel or inclusion? How can they even be considered patriotic?
    Oh, we know who won, and a lot of us feel the same about "your" guy as you did about ours.

    All that you speak was spoken by us as well. Don't like it much when it's happening to "your" guy. I'm hoping Obama will be successful, but with full scrutiny, and that he can bear up under the pressure as well as Bush did. I don't think Obama should get any "special" treatment at all.

    No. The press cannot see optimism. No one can. You can sense it, but sensing something is not the press' job. They need to report the facts. What they are projecting is their own optimism. That too, is not their job. Maybe some people in the world are all psyched that Obama is our prez. And maybe there are many who are scared to death or just don't trust the man. The problem with the press is that they won't just report. They decide for you what they want you to see.
    What they wonder is, if the rest of the world can hope for the best for the new American administration, why can't Americans?
    No. That's what YOU wonder. If the foreign press is wondering that, than they are not reporters, they are philosophers.

    You have your opinions, and others have theirs. We can all hope for the best, but tax cheats, recycled clinton administration officials, lobbyists ...etc are not a great start in the name of CHANGE. That's all we've got to judge Obama's performance on right now, and we have the right to stand up and say, "You're full of it Barack." Sorry if that deflates your optimism. Maybe we all want decent people in the Obama administration. Obviously they will differ from many of us politically, but that's not really the issue this week. The issue is the caliber of people he's appointing and the shady stuff he's willing to ignore.

    I'm not saying Leon Pennetta falls under the above category (yet). He's always been a creep IMO, but so far nothing illegal has come to light.
