    I was less than enthusiastic about our new President in front of my wife.
    She responded with "Who is your President?"
    I imeediately said "Charlton Heston" then remembered...........

    I think a lot of us are going to remember CH longer than anybody who gets squeezed through the meatgrinder we call the "American Presidential Election"

    Sorry guys but I have to buck the concensous on this one. Barak Obama is my President until such time he is voted out of office. I did not like it that he was elected but now that he is I find it necessary to wish nothing less than success for his tenure in office. As Americans we have to hope for better times to come and work towards that goal. If there is a policy we dont like than we work the system to try and change it.

    For me at the moment I am hoping that Sarah Palin runs in 2012 and she will receive all the support I am able to. There may even be more viable canidates by the time election season comes. Who ever the next President may be I want them to enherit a United States that is in the best possible condition.

    I think that George w Bush left this counrty better security wise than he had inherited it. He inherited a better economy but that went kinda bust on his watch. It is now up to Obama to better our economy while maintaining our security and standing in the world community. It should be the goal of every President to leave the country better than he or she found it. I hope that Obama accomplishes that task.

    You may be right

    In fact, in our own best interests, we should hope he does a freakin fabulous job and has every success possible in turning the economy and the world around. God knows he has a lot of places to succeed.

    Also in our own best interests, we must re-ask the initial question as "who are your Senators?" and "Who is your Congressman?" The Congressmen, with 2 year terms are much more sensitive to public comment and communication from their constituents.

    So find out who your Congressperson is and latch on to him or her for practice. Then move up and really get at your Senators. The Detroit 3 hearings made me aware of the arrogance that so easily develops in the senior chamber especially when they stand for office every six years.

    I think Obama's biggest problem will be with a Congress that is nominally part of his Party

    I agree 110%, I would go one farther and say that unlike Coulter I will not stoop to the liberals level, I will respect the office. I am proud to say Barack Obama is my president, not because of who he is, but because America has continued being a beacon of hope for the world through seamless and peaceful democratic transition. Democracy doesn't always result in the best choice, but the fact that it results in a choice is something to celebrate every day of the week.

    CityDesk, I agree. Charlton is who first came to mind. Otherwise, What would voters do?

    Edit: I was listening to Mike Church (America’s Right) on the way home this morning and he hit it on the head. There isn't a politician who stands up for their "IDEALS" anymore. It's all about party. Adams didn't go to Jefferson's inauguration, he left town the night before.

    These idiots and those that accept them, don't represent me, aren’t my fellow Americans, and therefore will not be treated politely. To see these folks smiling and shaking hands because it's just "politics," and those that accept that position have no spine, have no fortitude, and have no values or beliefs (my opinion).[​IMG]

    I have to somewhat disagree with you on this point. GW inherited the economy 1 fiscal quarter after the tech sector collapsed. In a couple of months the NASDAQ went from an all-time high of nearly 6000 to around 3600 points. Shortly after taking office, 9/11 expanded on our economic concerns and ENRON certainly didn't help. In the past 8 years, our economy has fared far better than the rest of the world. Also, the seeds were already planted for the subprime mess.

    Obama is technically my President but I fear he's an empty suit, propped up by the likes of George Soros and others who desperately want us to feel more a part of the UN. :eek::(

    I would have to agree with Vladimir that BO is the president, and add that we should respect the 'office' even though far too many folks didn't respect the office, or that guy would never have been elected.

    Obama is the president but I don't want him to succeed. His success will mean more gun control at the minimum, more taxes, a weaker military/America and more social spending and in general a shift from a capitalist economy to socialism. His success will be a devastating blow to our nation. I don't want America to fail but I know Obama is not the answer.
    Those old enough to have been adults when Carter was pres should realize that Obama will make Carter look like Reagan.

    Obama is POTUS, and Commander In Chief of the armed forces, (even though he thinks he is Commander And Chief of them, from his own words).
    We all need to support him, pray for him, and sincerely desire him to be a truly great leader. I also pray that he succeeds - not in all of the agenda which HE wants, but instead as a great leader who brings real improvements to our country.

    Just think what happens if he somehow is REMOVED -

    And what if HE is removed -

    With that line up, I would take a bullet for Obama.
