To "No Guarantees"... Tell me again how Obama is any different than any other politician?

He is not different, he is worse. He is trying to push his ideas onto us whether we want them or not. I think he is sticking his nose into our lives a bit too far. He made the american people a lot of promises that so far all I have seen is him giving to the big corporations that already have all the money. I am still waiting to see what he is suppose to be doing for the little folks in this country.

Actually he IS different~he is WORSE. He is going to allow the World Court to take over and admonish the U.S. as the third worst country in the world. He has decided that we should give up our Sovereignty and have a joint monetary system with other countries. He likes the idea of a World Government not necessarily with the US as the leader either. We would become a third world country. He is going to release the Gitmo folks on our unsuspecting citizens when we already know that the others released have rejoined their brothers in arms and attacked again in other areas. This time they will already be close at hand. How convieniant! I would consider all of these options as different and worse than any other polition we have ever had before. Shalom~Adoniah

Well, the biggest difference is he got more people to believe in him...and the end result is that more people will be disappointed since he made promises that he can't deliver on. All politicians do that...it is unfortunate but true.

Yup, "Hope" became "Hype" pretty quick, didn't it.

He's not, but I'm sure that's the answer you were expecting, right? Which makes me wonder why people can't see that each party has it's flaws and each President has his flaws. Am I being too simple minded here?

Actually, both major parties should be investigated under the RICO act.

This is an easy one.He's not!!!He promised a bunch of garbage he can't deliver on just like every other politician. I think anyone that is elected to a government office should only get 2-4 year terms.Then they get to become a regular citizens again.That way we can get rid of career poiticians who are the biggest problem in government. Of course,the way Obama is going,he won't get a second term as president.

Agreed, to a point. The terms are already described in the US Constitution. 2 terms should be enough for any elected official. Like you said, then they can go back to being "regular citizens" again.

Well, he's a communist, and he bows down to the leader of an oppressive islamic nation - those are two big differences!
